The Many Benefits of Bellvue Acupuncture

without comments

Bellvue Acupuncture has been the most popular alternative form of treatment for a wide range of sicknesses in the West since the 1970’s.  It is a potent weight loss program and is effective in treating pain, infertility, addiction, skin disorders, depression and anxiety.  Millions have benefited from this program and modern techniques developed in the West have made acupuncture even more effective than ever.

Practiced in China for well over 2000 years, acupuncture is part of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).  Acupuncture works by inserting hair-thin needles in certain areas of the body.  These needles help regulate the energy within the body, help restore the free flow of chi and stimulate the brain to release chemicals that help the body heal itself.  Acupuncture and TCM, in general are holistic in treatment of the individual.  This means they treat not only the physical ailments but also the emotional and psychological problems of the individual as well.

TCM believes that the body’s health lies in the free flow of chi or life force flowing throughout the body and in the body’s balanced and harmonious state of health.  When chi is blocked because of extreme emotions, positive or negative; injuries; pathogens or by the environment (climate), the balance of energy within the body which keeps the body in good health, is disrupted.  The result will be sickness, diseases and a general deterioration of health.

Acupuncture is very effective for people suffering from addictions whose cause often is mental in origin.  Alcoholism, substance abuse and overeating can be the result of some kind of psychological problem, usually sadness, anxiety, frustration, anger, loneliness or other negative emotions.  Acupuncture helps treat these types of problems by first removing the blockage caused by the negative emotions.  When chi then travels again throughout the body, the parts of the body deprived by chi becomes energized and the body’s metabolic rate increases, boosting the immune system and giving the person a renewed sense of vitality.  Acupuncture then helps stimulate the release of chemicals called endorphins and other beneficial chemicals that help the body feel relaxed and elated.  This relaxed state helps mitigate the craving and the addictions of the person good enough to enable him/her to resist the addiction.  Normally, the addiction is not cured overnight but after a number of sessions, the addiction becomes less and less until it eventually disappears.  Depending on the severity and longevity of the addiction, the treatment may last for a few days to more than six months.

For infertility cases, acupuncture elevates the body’s energy level and generates greater blood flow throughout the body.  Organs and body parts that usually make pregnancy difficult to achieve are repaired or benefit from the renewed vigor and blood flow in the body.  Acupuncture also normalizes hormone secretion, which is good especially for those producing low amounts of progesterone or high amounts of FSH.
