Bellevue Adequate Chi and Blood Circulation for a Healthy Body

without comments

A lot of studies have confirmed the effectiveness of herbal medicine and acupuncture combined in the symptom and pain management for cancer patients.  These two natural modes of treatment are utilized to offset the bad effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

Anxiety, depression, headaches, fatigue, vomiting, nausea, rashes, peeling skin, mouth sores and tongue ulcers are typical side effects of Western types of cancer treatment.  Many of these side effects are greatly neutralized by Chinese herbal therapy and acupuncture.

Here are some of the great benefits traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) gives to the body:

  1. Resolves stagnant energy in the body.  This stagnation is caused by blood and energy that have been blocked.  Fibroid, cyst and tumor growth are all manifestations of “blood stagnation” which can be corrected, removed or lessened with TCM.
  2. Improves blood circulation.
  3. Detoxifies the kidneys and liver.
  4. Balances hormones and improves the endocrine system function by helping the body achieve homeostasis.
  5. Helps produce and release beta endorphins that stimulates the sympathetic and autonomic nervous system.
  6. Alleviates both physical and mental stress.

Sadly more and more people are suffering from cancer and TCM is often overlooked or bypassed as a way to prevent cancer or at least serve as an adjunct treatment for Western solutions to cancer.  To help address cancer, a proper utilization of Eastern and Western medicine is needed.   Cancer can be avoided by letting people know that by eating healthy diet and following a healthy lifestyle one can effectively prevent the body from developing cancer.  Drugs, chemicals, processed foods and stress are leading factors for developing cancer.  Very little effort has been done to study and treat the root cause(s) of cancer.  This is because the medical industry has viewed cancer as a way to prosper financially.  Most cancer survivors have cited that exercise, good healthy eating and the reduction of stress have made them successfully overcome cancer.

TCM enables the normal and unobstructed flow of blood and energy (chi) throughout the body.  This free flow of life fluid and life energy gives the body good overall health.  TCM causes the immune system to function optimally.  Thus a healthy immune system can easily ward off disease.  The presence of adequate chi means your level of energy and vitality is optimal.  Thus technically speaking, chi is a person’s immune system. Blood and chi are dependent on each other and they both need to be adequate for the body to be disease free and healthy.  TCM for thousands of years has been used to fight flu, colds and fever by helping produce lymphocytes and white blood cells.  My patients know to call for Bellevue acupuncture treatment and herbs as soon as they start feeling sick. With TCM the patient who is suffering from sinus infections, bronchitis, flu or cold will recover much faster.
