Spiritual & Healing Practices: Acupuncture Healing Though considered to be an alternative healing medicine practice, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (or TCM), and other such Eastern healing practices have found their way into the Western world and other Asian countries outside of China. Consequently, acupuncture healing and wellness clinics have proliferated even in the most modern of places all over the world.    In the U.S., acupuncture, TCM, and other alternative healing medicine practices are integrated with Western medicine because there are laws regulating the practice of acupuncture and Chinese medicine.    Acupuncture healing is a centuries’ old Chinese medical practice which involves the insertion (hence, “puncture”) of needles into specific points on the body, and then manipulating said needles to stimulate the flow of energy in the body. It has been found to be effective for therapeutic and pain relief purposes; thus, its growing popularity.    According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture points are located along certain “meridians” of the body which when stimulated by needles can free the flow of blocked “energy”. Blockages in the flow of energy are believed to be caused by many lifestyle factors, including food intake, a person’s state of mind, state of spiritual wellbeing, etc.    Meridians are described as interconnected “points” across the anatomy which correspond with and affect specific organs of the body. This forms the foundation of other healing alternatives, such as reflexology, acupressure, etc. Acupuncture, TCM, and other alternative healing medicine take into account the wellness, not just of the body, but of the mind and spirit. In this sense, acupuncture healing is holistic healing.

Just about everyone has heard that acupuncture is good for pain, headaches, lower back problems etc.

But few, including many of my colleagues in Acupuncture and Allied Modalities realize how potent skillfully applied acupuncture can be in promoting better health and in the case of Olympic Gold Medalist Emma Snowsill, a way of recapturing her competitive mojo...

Today I picked up a book that's been on my shelf for some 15 years or so. I use it for reference and read it occasionally, "Staying Healthy With Nutrition" by Elson Haas, MD. It's a comprehensive book about diet and nutrition that I highly recommend. A newer, 2006 edition is now out, but much of the information presented still feels current, though dosage recommendations for nutritional supplements has likely changed, and I’m sure the section on water has been updated...

Acupuncture/TCM


by Arthur Rosenfeld

Recently I've been involved in creating and hosting a series of documentaries on integrative medicine. The three films are aimed at healthcare professionals. The first is about the science of tai chi, the second is about the science of meditation and the third is about the science of acupuncture. I've just wound up the last on-location filming (interviewing experts) for the acupuncture film, and am struck by how this ancient healing modality is blossoming in popularity across the country...


Editor's Note
: This article is a good introduction to acupuncture to those who have not tried the modality.

Acupuncture/TCM


by Martin Eisen

Tai Chi has increased in popularity in the western world. It often appears in the background of advertisements of unrelated products. It is recommended for seniors and by the American Arthritis Society, which has its own simplified version. Many health clubs and martial arts studios offer Tai Chi classes...

 

Editor's Note: My colleague Marty Eisen writes an interesting article about points to think about when one is considering learning tai qi or qi gong. These are meditative exercises that fall under the umbrella of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) due to their health benefits from Qi (vital energy) cultivation. Marty also discusses problems with scientific studies of tai qi and qi gong and why they likely do not accurately assess the benefits of these medical arts.

Similar to opening Pandora’s jar, taking enzyme supplements for breaking up biofilms can release hidden pains.
At a recent seminar, medical practitioners were shown how earthworm enzymes are able to break up slimy biofilms and uncover hidden Lyme disease bacteria. A biofilm is a protective slime that bacteria and other germs encase themselves in to avoid being killed...

 

Editor's Note: Lyme Disease is awful to have and difficult to treat. One of the factors complicating treatment is the protective biofilm the bacteria surround themselves in that is difficult for the antibiotics to penetrate. Once the biofilm is penetrated and the bacteria are killed, they release toxins which cause a Herxheimer reaction. In this article, Greg Lee, LAc who focused his practice in treating Lyme and other chronic diseases discusses these issues. He mentions representative Chinese herbs which calm the mind when toxic emotions are released.

Body Clock

by Milos Bang

Most of Eastern Philosophy and Medicine comes from observing Nature and the Universe. Ancient Chinese realized early that most things in Nature are cyclical and by observing the human body’s patterns, established that our own energy (Qi) also moves on daily and on annual cycles.
