Common Questions About Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine
We are often asked many questions about Denver acupuncture and its benefits for your health. Specifically how it can be used in a variety of situations. Here are a few common ones we see from very unique perspectives. Please see our Forums for more information
For Pain Control
According to the recent scientific researches, the scientists find that the acupuncture can stimulate the hypothalamus-pituitary gland of the human body to create some specific chemicals, especially endorphins, the body’s natural pain-killing hormones. It is estimated that endorphins are 200 times more potent than morphines. Endorphins also play an important role in the functioning of the hormonal systems, they regulate serotonin in the brain which plays a role in human disposition. This is why acupuncture works well for pain syndromes and also for P.M.S., infertility, depression and so on.
The acupuncture treatment mostly works on the ovulation disorder. The acupuncture treatment can promote the ovulation to achieve pregnancy. It has been proven to increase success rates of IVF (in vitro fertilization) by nearly twenty percent when administered in a German study in 2002. Of course, Chinese doctors have known of the benefits of TCM in the treatment of infertility long before it was ever studied in the West, with the first known publications on infertility appearing several hundred years ago. Due to recent studies, we now know that acupuncture affects the pituitary gland and acts on the sympathetic nervous system to reduce stress and regulate hormones. In the treatment of infertility, it has also been shown to increase blood flow to the uterus. To find out more about acupuncture and fertility, see here.
Acupuncture and herbal medicine have been used to treat diabetes for over 2000 years. A patient with "Xiao Ke" or “wasting and thirsting disease” (the Traditional Chinese medical term for diabetes) is discussed in detail in the Nei Jing, a classic Chinese medical book written about 2,500 years ago. The patient is described as having symptoms of excessive hunger and thirst, frequent urination and rapid weight loss; all symptoms of diabetes.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), diabetes is caused by an imbalance of the cyclical flow of Qi within the meridians and organ systems. This particular imbalance produces heat that depletes the body’s fluids and Qi causing Qi and Yin deficiency.
For Weight Loss
We should think about the obesity problem from two sides in terms of health in individuals. One is input path, the other one is output path. For the obesity, it should be the increasing input and the decreasing output. So our purpose is to decrease the input and increase the output for the treatment of obesity.
The acupuncture therapy works by stimulating of specific points located on the surface of the skin to adjust the metabolism system. So it can not only decrease the input path, but at the same times it can also increase the output path by adjusting the built-in metabolism system in our body, and there is no pain but just a little bit feeling like a little bit sore, numbness or tingling. It is not easy to be overweight again. That is why the acupuncture therapy is becoming more and more popular for weight reduction right now.
