Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are both the most complete medicines of the world. Not just because I’m supposed to say so (I make a living with both of them) but because they both treat not only symptomatology but the root of the disease. I encourage you to do your own research through studies to find any other medicine that actually looks into the cause of disease. You won’t be able to find it.
Our current western medicine is good. It complements perfectly with Chinese Medicine increasing the healing speed on any medical condition. However ours rarely treats the cause of the disease but symptoms only.
Now let’s give some (honest) statements about Acupuncture:
First, Acupuncture is not good for everything. Yes, you heard well coming from an Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine blog: Acupuncture is not effective for all medical conditions. Where acupuncture struggles, herbal medicines works fantastic. Otherwise if Herbal Medicine doesn’t help, then acupuncture covers the gap. For BEST results: a combination of both helps for ALL medical conditions.
Now if we focus on acupuncture, it is more effective for:
- Pain: any pain.
- Muscle contracture and Stiffening.
- Lack (or lose) of range of motion.
- Injuries where surgery is not required: Disc protrusion, sprain, epincondylitis, knee injury, shoulder injury, etc.
- Chronic pain (more than 6 months) being extremely effective for Chronic Back Pain.
- Neuropathic pain (e.g: Trigeminal Neuralgia, diabetic neuropathy or any peripheral neuropathy/hypoesthesias).
- Paralysis (e.g: Bell’s Palsy due to inflammation of the facial nerve).
- Low emotional mood.
- High levels of stress.
- Irregular sleep.
- Post Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) sequelae such as dizziness, instability, paresthesias, forgetfullness, nervousness, dysphoria.
- Relative infertility. By relative means assisted IVF support, Breech in pregnancy to turn, prepare the uterus for natural birth on due date.
