The Marvel of Acupuncture
There are a huge variety of common diseases and chronic conditions that can be treated with acupuncture
Rheumatic diseases, neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, post-zoster, migraines, vertebro-basilar circulatory failure and many other ailments that are resistant to medication can be treated with acupuncture, so it is a small wonder that patients far and wide are seeking this alternative treatment for their chronic ailments.
“I remember a patient who came to me over 10 years ago,” says Doctor Alice Popescue, “with a case of Meniere's disease who, after a series of acupuncture treatments did not suffer from any more vertigo attacks.” Doctor Popescue has also successfully treated patients with menstrual disorders, biliary dyskinesias, gastroesophageal reflux and reflux esophagitis, gastritis, constipation, insomnia, allergies, Bell's palsy, and that’s just to name a few.
Another stubborn, chronic ailment that is particularly resistant to medication is Parkinson's disease. Happily acupuncture significantly improves the response to drug treatment in Parkinson’s patients.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, abbreviated COPD, is the third leading cause of death in the world after cardiovascular disease and cancer according to a report by the World Health Organization.
The treatment of this condition specific among smokers is extremely difficult with extremely low chances of a cure; typically the effects of administered drugs in these cases is more to alleviate the symptoms.
Recently, specialists from Kyoto Medical University discovered that acupuncture can help patients reduce the symptoms of COPD by more than 50% including chronic bronchitis and pulmonary emphysema.
The 68 study participants all diagnosed with COPD achieved high scores on the Borg scale, a highly reliable and useful tool that measures the degree of resistance to exertion depending on respiration proving that acupuncture is the most effective remedy for this condition.
People say "I don't take medication because they have negative side effects, I go to acupuncture or use homeopathic remedies because they have no side effects." But that’s not true! Let me explain.
Acupuncture has side effects but they are not negative, they are positive. What kind of sideeffects you ask? You see, through acupuncture when you eliminate a negative blockage or bring into neutrality that which was in deficit what happens is that not only is the target organ healed, but the surrounding organs benefit from the revitalized area so that the entire organism is healed through the treatment.
Is it true that acupuncture can weaken us?
Yes--but in only positive ways. Let me explain. First ask yourself whether or not you have any habits that are out of control that you would like to “weaken.” If you are like most people you don’t have just one out of control habit, but you have an entire list. For you I have good news because acupuncture stimulates digestion, decreases appetite, decreases the desire for sweets and the desire to "nibble" and wait there’s more. Acupuncture also stimulates the elimination of excess weight and drains the fluids retained in the tissues and with diet and exercise acupncture can be the cure for even long-term obese patients.
With so many benefits it is a small wonder that acupuncturists make a very good living and their skills are in high demand.
