Acupuncture in Orlando is a treatment practiced by traditional Chinese medicine to allow the free flow of life force or chi as the Chinese calls it, throughout the body through networks in the body called meridian lines. This free flow of the life force is similar to blood replenishing the whole body via the veins, capillaries and arteries, known collectively as the circulatory system.
Chi and the meridian lines are invisible to the eyes and thus do not have a tangible anatomical structure although the ancient Chinese have been able to map the meridian points of the whole body. These points are used by acupuncturists to heal the body of aliments by inserting needles in them; enabling the body to achieve balance and harmony by removing blockages in the meridians that would allow the normal flow of chi throughout the body.
To better understand the Chinese view of how the body works, the Chinese believe in the principle of yin and yang. Yin and yang are the cold and heat forces interacting in the body. There are yin organs in the body and they govern the water or cold aspect of the body while the yang organs control the fire and heat aspect. The yin organs are the heart, liver, spleen, lungs and kidneys while the yang organs are the intestines (large and small), gall bladder, urinary bladder and stomach.
The interaction of the yin and yang organs preserve a balance of the fire and water aspects and this balance preserves the well-being of the body.
How does acupuncture protect us from infection? Infections in the form of bacteria or virus are in essence heat forces. The invasion of these foreign agents in the body produces an inordinate amount of heat that disrupts the body’s harmonious health balance. They also leave toxins in the blood, which make the body sick.
Acupuncture with herbal medicine; help the body by enabling the organs, particularly the kidney to tonify. They help stabilize the imbalance of heat and cold in the body by removing heat produced by the foreign infiltrators. They also remove the cold or wind that the organs produce to counter the bacteria or virus-engendered heat.
Next, acupuncture removes the blockages caused by the harmful phages allowing the chi to nourish the organs, enabling them to resist the harmful foreign agents. Once proper balance of yin and yang is restored, the body then slowly recovers. The process of healing is facilitated by Chinese herbal medicine. There are a myriad of herbal medicines and a lot of them cater to the treatment of a specific organ.
Acupuncture treatment for bacterial infection is a very safe treatment. Unlike pharmaceutical drugs, acupuncture does not have any side effects in the body that western medicine always have.
