Choosing Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine to Relieve Pain

| May 7, 2010 | 0 Comments | 184 views

Many Westerners have been trying Chinese acupuncture and medicine when pills and doctors weren't helping them. Many people who are faced with conditions such as fibromyalgia, tendonitis, or osteoporosis feel that there is no hope of long lasting relief from their symptoms. People that suffer from depression and chronic headaches will benefit from trying Chinese acupuncture.

Evidently, the most current study of acupuncture and Chinese medicine in the USA claims that 8.2 million Americans have experienced acupuncture therapy at some point in their lives. Of those people, 2.1 million have tried acupuncture this past year. Acupuncture works through the use of filiform needles that are inserted and maneuvered in certain points on the body to provide freedom from pain. There is more to Chinese medicine than just visiting an acupuncture clinic. There is a wide array of herbal medicines and remedies to try.

Cancer patients who are being treated with chemotherapy have begun using acupuncture and Chinese medicine to alleviate side effects like nausea or headaches. Conditions that are difficult to manage and treat, such as osteoarthritis, asthma, drug addiction, and various types of chronic pain, can often be remedied with acupuncture or Chinese herbal supplements. It's an effective and inexpensive alternative to a visit with a traditional health practitioner.

Americans are only now beginning to understand the value of alternative medicines, even though the Chinese medicine manuals have remained in tact for over 5,000 years. Schools that provide training and education in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine are quite popular in California. Maybe Yoga and green tea have led the way for Chinese acupuncture and medicine. Americans seem to be happy with the new pain relief options.
