Many of us will experience some kind of illness or injury during our lives and sometimes traditional medicine does not quite hit the mark. Indeed, some of the chemicals we are given to cure some problem or another can actually make us sicker than we already were. It is thought this occurs when we build up immunity to the drug, or we have an inborn sensitivity to it. Some people are turning to ancient methods then to cure pain or disease and this is seen more often these days since the practice is more widely spread now. For those who may want to give this a try, look for ‘acupuncturist’ or ‘acupuncturists’ online to see what therapists are listed online.
People often mistakenly believe that these therapists only deal with illnesses but this is not exactly true. They use energy points all over the body to move energy around and it is said to cure a whole host of ills. For example, one woman wanted to do something about sagging skin on her face but was against plastic surgery. A course with this kind of therapy saw her face lift naturally giving her a much more relaxed look. Before this, she actually looked tired and miserable and had a ‘hang dog’ look which made her quite unapproachable.
For pain, the act of putting needles into appropriate places is to stimulate the endorphins in the body. These are the natural pain killers, or feel good factor chemicals, that we all have. By stimulating their flow in the body, we feel much better and the pain will subside too. Traditional pain killers do all kinds of damage to the kidneys and liver so it is unwise to keep on taking them year after year. However, those who have experienced chronic pain will say otherwise. Indeed, some people cannot function without them and there is a tendency to get dependent on them. This is particularly true for the very strong pain killers that doctors often prescribe when they have a patient in extreme pain.
Even if someone is suffering from internal problems, like irritable bowel syndrome or high blood pressure for example, getting this kind of treatment is often enough to see everything return to normal over time. It will not happen all at once but those who book a complete course will comment that they feel much better at the end of it. There are also different forms of this kind of treatment too and one has needles that are lit on the outside end. This transmits heat to the inside of the body to specific points and will stimulate the energy flow in a different or quicker way.
For those who have some health problems, it is always a good idea to ask a medical doctor first before taking up a course of this therapy. As long as the general practitioner knows what is about to happen, they usually do not have any objections at all. Those who have a lot of pain though may well feel more at the beginning of the course but then it will usually settle down.
