Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine do not have this side effect and are thus safer and should therefore be used first before resorting to chemical medicine.
Chinese Herbs work alone or in collaboration with acupuncture to support the rebalancing of the Qi energy in the body. Chinese herbal medicine is also highly effective in reducing of swelling and bruising without the infamous side effects of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) which even when correctly prescribed kill tens of thousands of people in the United States yearly from the complication of internal bleeding alone.
The body has a flow of energy (Qi) running through it following channels called meridians. When this flow is disrupted or unbalanced, illness, pain and inflammation can result. Acupuncture uses very thin needles inserted into specific points on the meridians to restore the balance.
Acupuncture is well known in its ability to stop pain, what is not well known is its utility in reducing inflammation and speeding recovery. It also promotes proper blood flow and stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms. Acupuncture reduces stress and aids relaxation.
Acupuncture has been practiced for more than 5000 years. Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine have enjoyed a surge in popularity over the past quarter century with licensure in over two thirds of the States.
