Acupuncture for Endocrine Disorders

Method of treatment – Acupuncture for endocrine disorders

Acupuncture for endocrine disorders involves sticking hair-fine needles into the body at various points to relieve symptoms or cure illnesses and diseases. It is a practice of Traditional Chinese Medicine. When the hands are put into the body, they are said to work by realigning a person’s yin, yang, and qi (or ki or chi). Yin and Yang are the balances of nature, and qi is a person’s life force.

Acupuncture for endocrine disordersSome Western doctors acknowledge that acupuncture works. However, others criticize the practice. This is because no physiological basis or facts show acupuncture should work. The biology of the human body does not contain these acupuncture points. However, some neuro-imaging studies show acupuncture does affect the outermost layer of organs and can cause relief for many symptoms related to illnesses.

Some Western doctors do not recommend acupuncture to heal ailments. However, while it may not be recommended to cure illnesses (although it is claimed to have done so for various conditions), it is recognized as relieving many symptoms.

Acupuncture for endocrine disorders has become more popular.

In the last several years, people have become less satisfied with their modern Western medical providers and solutions, leading them to look toward alternative medicine for answers. However, this search has led to new questions, “how do I find the right alternative medical system for me, and will it help my condition?” One of the best solutions to this problem is acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). This fantastic system can work with many health-related issues by treating the person as an individual, not just the disease. This article aims to help you discover what problems can be treated with acupuncture and Traditional Chinese medicine.

Many people in the West think acupuncture works mainly with pain or is a fringe treatment that can’t treat anything. While it is true that acupuncture can be a phenomenal treatment tool for pain and that pain is what most people in the West begin seeing an acupuncturist for, there are many different problems that acupuncture can effectively treat. Even more, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH) have approved acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat many diseases that are not pain-related. These can include adjunct treatments for nausea during cancer treatment, menstrual cramps and menorrhagia syndromes, fibromyalgia, and digestive disorders, among many others. In addition, many groundbreaking studies show that acupuncture can even help treat complex problems like infertility and other complicated issues.

Endocrine illnesses are on the rise, and so is the popularity of acupuncture for endocrine disorders.

Endocrine illnesses are on the upswing in the USA. Diabetes, thyroid metabolic disorders like hyperthyroid and hypothyroid, and bone-dense problems known as osteoporosis are the most dominant. Fifteen million US people have been identified with Diabetes (600,000 firsthand cases spotted every year), and 20,000,000 with different forms of thyroid dysfunctions.

Endocrine ailments are the most often diagnosed reason for psychological disorders such as nervousness, sleeplessness, and melancholy. Numerous progressive and autoimmune syndromes also accompany hormonal insufficiency and/or irregularity. Endocrine illnesses can lead to stroke, malignancy, long-lasting exhaustion, unproductiveness, fatness, sleeplessness, prostate diseases, and many other bodily and psychological expressions.

The endocrine arrangement in the body is one of the most secretive parts of the organism.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), endocrinology is the science of the organism’s fluid structure: the actual liquids (exocrine and endocrine) and the energy that generates and transports them around the body.

There occurs Communication and synergy between all endocrine glands of the organism. They stabilize each other. This synergy can lead to confusion as signs may be noticeable, for example, in the thyroid as a reaction to a disparity in the adrenal gland. The awkward majority of traditional Western healing methods apply only to the region where signs of diseases manifest, overlooking synergistic connections to other organs, frequently omitting the core of the medical condition.

That’s why holistic methods like Acupuncture for endocrine disorders become more beneficial in the healing process of this system. Acupuncture for endocrine disorders concentrates on harmonizing Qi energy that stimulates different glands at the same time. For instance, the hyperthyroid syndrome may lead to gonadal hyperfunctioning as well as hypothyroidism may result in a decrease in adrenal gland function.

The beauty of Acupuncture for endocrine disorders is that this technique considers the whole body as the one mechanism in which different organs are just other parts, and the flow of the Qi energy connects all of them.

In Acupuncture for endocrine disorders healing the hormonal system is not simply about nourishing the glands. It’s more about forcing these glands and their hormones to flow and circulate the organism. By stimulating the movement of the Qi energy, Acupuncture for endocrine disorders helps to create a healthy synergy between different glands, which results in the proper functioning of the whole system.

Healing with Acupuncture for endocrine disorders is more than visiting an acupuncturist to “get fixed.” Contrary Acupuncture for endocrine disorders is about digging inside the system using traditional Chinese diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the initial organ that became ill, causing further energy deficiency in different body parts. Only after that does Acupuncture for endocrine disorders become beneficial.
