Acupuncture and its benefits have been very well-publicized. What about the possibility of wasting your money on something that does not work? It’s time to stop buying the hype and find out what the truth is.
First off, the idea of acupuncture in itself is therapy. The principle behind acupuncture is the connection between what goes on in the body and your mind. Your mind and your body are interlinked. To help relieve pain in your body, you need to bring your mind into balance. You might think that this concept is still the same today, but the body is not the same. There are subtle differences among people. Acupuncture can’t be used on every person with every problem.
Next, when you get your health care provider to do an examination, they will want to know if you’ve had a prior infection. This will be verified by X-rays or a skin test, depending on the condition.
Acupuncture won’t work on every condition, as it requires a “proper” placement of the needles and a vein problem that will need to be addressed with other treatments. When a vein problem needs to be addressed, a patient’s homeopathic practitioner may be able to address it with a prescription of herbals.
Another common misconception is that acupuncture can improve your brain function. As previously mentioned, a mind-body connection is used to treat a problem. Therefore, if the problem has a mental element, you’re not going to see any improvement with acupuncture.
While acupuncture does affect your physical health, your mental and emotional state will also be improved with the use of acupuncture. It seems odd, but studies have shown that some of the most common health ailments are caused by stress. With acupuncture, you’re helping the body to relieve the symptoms of that stress, which is a step in the right direction.
Homeopathy should be able to balance your mind and body, allowing you to improve your mental state and better respond to things like acupuncture. You won’t see dramatic changes overnight, but over time, it will become easier. And, once you’re feeling better, you’ll have fewer problems because you’ll be aware of your mental state.
