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...

Acupuncture Combined With Curcumin Protects The Liver

Acupuncture Combined with Curcumin Protects the Liver Vol 16 Issue 25 Recent clinical trials have demonstrated that Acupuncture, combined with supplements of the herb curcumin, provides “significant protection against hepatic fibrosis.” What is hepatic fibrosis? Hepatic means ‘of the liver’; fibrosis refers to excessive thickening of the connective tissue. And it’s more common than you might think. Liver fibrosis starts with an attempt to heal acute or chronic liver injury. It is sometimes referred to as “exuberant wound healing” – an abnormal response to injury that results in heightened inflammation and excessive proliferation of connective tissue. The result of this exuberant response is scarring, sometimes severe, that can seriously compromise liver function. Many people associate liver damage with alcohol and cirrhosis. But it is also caused by any type of ingested toxin, including drugs. In fact, more than 900 drugs have been implicated in liver damage, according to the book Current diagnosis & treatment in gastroenterology, and it is the most common reason why drugs are taken off the market. Also, drug-induced liver injury is responsible for 5% of all hospital admissions and 50% of all acute liver failures. Since the liver is responsible for filtering all of our ingested food and liquid, and for removing toxins so the nutrients supplied to the body are pure and capable of providing nourishment, it is vital that we keep our liver in good shape. Fortunately, a new study has found that Acupuncture and curcumin can help us do that. The study was conducted at Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine in Nanjing, China. The researchers discovered that when Acupuncture and curcumin are combined, they have a...
