Chinese medicine and acupuncture
I met with a lady last Friday who has practised Chinese medicine for over 40 years.
I had a consultation with her, where we discussed my medical history to date. She used my pulse to identify weak organs and checked my tongue for blood heath/vitality to start with.
She then explained that the Chinese believe in a holistic approach and that you need to treat the body as a whole – making it strong first, then targeting the specific area where the problems are.
The treatment she offers involves acupuncture and, if required, a combination of Chinese herbal remedies.
The aim is to re-align the energy flow in the body via acupuncture and strengthen your organs with the help of specific herbs.
I researched what I was given and it all seems to have a proven history of working really well. Let’s face it, it’s something which has been used by the Chinese for centuries, so there must be something good there.
In particular, one form of treatment is in phase 2 trials in America as it has been found to work well.
I am due for further acupuncture on Monday/Friday so will update you on how I get on. What I can say though is that I’ve been feeling much more energised since Friday, so I am very much looking forward to seeing her again!
Have a great week everyone!
Lots of Love Miggy xx
