I'm Not A Medical Doctor But…

Hello All, This will be the first of my weekly post of “I’m not a Medical doctor but…”. These post will have lots of information about health, natural wellness, and preventing illness naturally. I am an board certified Acupuncturist in Illinois and I have a thriving practice. I’ve studied Orientl Medicine in Beijing, China and I am in the process of writing a book. In Chinese Medicine we have many different methods of diagnosis but of all the methods, 2 are considered to be the most reliable: inspection of the tongue and palpation of the pulse of both wrists. This week we will talk about the tongue. Take a moment and look at your tongue. Ok, what do you see? Is it red, purpleish, pink or pale pink? Do you have a coat on your tongue? If so, is it thick, or thin, white or yellow? Do you have cracks on your tongue? A healthy tongue fits comfortably in the mouth and is smooth, moist, pink and firm with a thin white coat that covers the upper surface. A red tongue will show heat in the body. A Pale tongue will show blood deficiency in the body. A purple tongue can show blood stagnation in the body. A dry tongue can show that the fluids of the body are being dried up which would show in something like menopause. A thick and greasy tounge coat could show food stagnation in the stomach. A red tongue that has a yellow coat that is dry is a sign that something HOT is going on in the body. The tongue is red...

Acupuncture Relieves Pain Of TMJ And Can Correct The Condition

Acupuncture Can Help Relieve the Pain of TMJ and Even Correct the Condition Vol 15 Issue 89 TMJ stands for temporomandibular joints, the joints that connect the jawbone to the skull. The acronym also describes a condition in which these joints stop functioning properly, causing a variety of painful, uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating symptoms. Treatment usually involves mouth guards, also known as dental splints, bite therapy, and jaw exercises. However, two studies also indicate that Acupuncture can relieve the pain and correct the condition. TMJ is always accompanied by muscle spasm, but it can also cause clicking or popping of the jaw joints, pain around the joints, a jaw that locks or won’t fully open, difficulty chewing and biting, and clenching or grinding of the teeth. These problems can also result in headaches, pain, dizziness, ringing in the ears, and neck and shoulder pain. The grinding and clenching can also crack the teeth or wear them down. In the first study, published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, researchers found that muscle activity in the area was reduced considerably after Acupuncture treatment. Participants were also able to bite harder, and without pain. The muscle activity was measured by Electromyography (EMG), a graphical tracing of the electrical activity in a muscle at rest or during contraction. Authors of the study concluded that “Acupuncture promoted alterations in the EMG activity of masticatory muscles, increased maximal molar bite force, and led to remission of the subjects’ painful symptomatology.” The second study, actually a review of four earlier studies, showed that Acupuncture reduces TMJ pain, improves chewing function and increases the maximal opening of...

Scalp Acupuncture Helps Combat Dementia

Research Finds Scalp Acupuncture Helps Combat Dementia Vol 16 Issue 26 One of the most feared conditions of aging is dementia – the loss of brain function that impairs memory, thinking, judgment, language and behavior. What’s so frightening is that most conditions of dementia are considered to be progressive, and are generally irreversible. However, Alzheimer’s disease and other supposedly irreversible conditions are not the only things that can lead to progressive cognitive impairment. The same symptoms can also be caused by impaired blood flow to the brain – called vascular (blood vessel) dementia. This is sometimes the result of a stroke or a series of little strokes (called ‘Silent Strokes’) that have no symptoms and usual happen without the person’s awareness, but it can also be caused by anything that damages the blood vessels and prevents the delivery of essential oxygen and nutrients to brain tissue. What can be done about vascular dementia? At the Shanghai Research Institute of Acupuncture in China, a multi-center randomized controlled clinical trial was conducted on 184 vascular dementia patients. The participants received either scalp Acupuncture or the standard body Acupuncture. The study concluded that Acupuncture performed on specific scalp points brought about significantly greater improvement in cognition than the more usual body Acupuncture points. The researchers reported that social behavior scores improved significantly in both the body and scalp Acupuncture groups, as did Activities of Daily Living scores and specific Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnostic conditions. But the scalp Acupuncture group earned highest improvement scores overall, because it provided greater improvement in cognitive functions. Scalp Acupuncture has also been found to help people with nervous system...
