For three thousand years acupuncture has been used to improve health positively. Records dating back to this time show these significant influence of acupuncture on our health. These documents describe that with the support of acupuncture treatment many emotional and physical issues disappear. The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as the National Institute of Health (NIH) have recognized the effects of acupuncture on various health disorders like fertility, menstrual irregularities, pain, acne, colitis, depression, anxiety, and stress.
Qualified patients also reported a significant influence of acupuncture on their skin and hair. Some acupuncturists have specialized in rejuvenating acupuncture. Based on the idea of Traditional Chinese Medicine the rejuvenating acupuncture (also called cosmetic acupuncture) focuses on balancing of a person’s internal organs and on resolving of the cause of the aging process. The reported experiences of the patients after the rejuvenation acupuncture treatment state that the skin glows and becomes less wrinkled.
In the article, “Why Are We Aging – The Big Picture, Knowledge of Ancient Wisdom,” we learned that our health is the key to the fountain of youth. When the skin gets wrinkles, or dark, yellow, or red spots, or the hair gets thinner, it always has to do with our health and our gene expression.
From the view of Traditional Chinese Medicine, our health and youth depend on the level of our energy and energetic flow. When energy flow is disrupted, various signs and symptoms appear: aging, hair loss, weight gain, acne, pain, as well as emotional symptoms like depression and anxiety. Acupuncture is an ancient method to remove the disruption in energy flow. When the energy flows properly, and every cell can be nourished, our body becomes stronger, and the signs and symptoms of blocked energy flow disappear.
The Traditional Chinese Medicine considered the human body not from the material, biological perspective but rather from the energic.This view of the physical state of the body as a manifestation of energy is closely related to the construct modern science’s quantum physics.
Our attitude and thoughts can also influence the physical state of the body because they have an energetic vibration. Consequently, people can control their energy level through positive attitudes, thoughts, a balanced lifestyle, and a healthy diet. Acupuncture is a supportive tool when we’re stuck and can´t move on. We can use the positive effects of acupuncture on our energy flow to get out of this state and move on.
Nowadays, most people who experience acupuncture have noticed an improvement in well-being. Scientists have found evidence proving the positive effects on the function of the immune system, the electrical system as well as on balancing blood chemistry.
One scientific study on Electroacupuncture (EA) found, that “EA affected the expression of genes not only in the acupunctured site but also in the internal organs. EA commonly affected biological networks involved in cytoskeleton and cell adhesion, and also regulated unique process networks in specific organs,such as γ-aminobutyric acid-ergic neurotransmission in brain and inflammation process in lung. In addition, EA affected the expression of genes related to various diseases, such as neurodegenerative diseases in brain and obstructive pulmonary diseases in lung.” In “Why Are We Aging – The Big Picture, Scientific Insights” we learned that from the standpoint of Epigenetics, gene expression has more influence on our health, and consequently our youthfulness, than the genetic code (DNA).
Acupuncture helps us become balanced with better health, prolonged youth, and longevity.
