The human body is an amazing machine with various physiological systems working in coordination with each other. Although they have each different function, the body systems can affect each other if there is a dysfunction in one or more body systems. This article will focus on hoe acupuncture Louisville improves the function of the circulatory system in the health of the body. The circulatory system plays a major part in sustaining all the body systems with all the vital nutrients and oxygen the body needs to survive. This system helps clean out the bloodstream by conveying pure blood to the rest of the body and removes all waste materials and toxins out of the body. Any impairment in this system can result in serious conditions for the body.
Acupuncture treatment has the ability to repair any dysfunctions in the circulatory system and potentially for that matter, all the body systems. According to acupuncture principles, the body consists of a network of vessels which convey energy all over the body. This energy is called chi by the Chinese and the energy vessels are called meridians. Any problems in chi flow entail disorders and illness. The problems may be caused by poor diet, emotional disturbances or physical imbalances. With acupuncture, needles are applied in the meridian points to resolve the chi flow problem and redirect chi and blood to the affected areas of the body. The chi problems or blockages are removed, chi flow is restored and the circulatory system again is healthy allowing for an improved blood flow to the rest of the body.
Poor circulation can manifest in many ways including hypertension, hardening of arteries and cold hands. Many studies have dealt with how acupuncture affects blood circulation. Some studies have proven that acupuncture increases the function and strength of the heart. Studies have observed that about almost all (80%) patients with angina had improved conditions after acupuncture treatment. There are occasions wherein acupuncture helped restore the heart’s regular rhythm function from heartbeat irregularities such as palpitations, irregular heart rhythm or dropped beats. Acupuncture also works for treating arterial spasms particularly in collateral vessels. It also is effective in treating ulcers in venous stasis or Reynaud’s disease. The treatment is complemented oftentimes by herbal medicines applied to help detoxify the body.
Acupuncture treatment in Jacksonville will not be completely safe unless the needles used are the disposable and sterilized ones. Therefore, it is always recommended to go to a licensed acupuncturist who uses new, sterilized and single-use needles. Some people might be wary of needling pain but the only sensation felt during acupuncture is when the needles are inserted in the skin which sometimes elicits a slight tingling sensation; however, more often than not no sensation is felt at all during the needling process.
