Homeopathic Pain Management

Posted November 21, 2007 by Acupuncture & Massage College & filed under Herbs & Medicine

Homeopathic pain management may minimize pain, reduce stress and improve well-being. Homeopathic pain management is a system of medicine based on the premise that tiny quantities of certain substances can stimulate the body to heal itself. Homeopathic pain management substances are greatly diluted, which in larger doses would produce similar symptoms of the illness afflicting the individual. These diluted substances, utilized in homeopathic pain management remedies, stimulate the body to provide a healing response. The healing response produced by homeopathic pain management remedies then acts to reduce condition symptoms. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and other conventional pain management medications often have side effects such as low immune function and ulcers, which can be avoided by using homeopathic pain management remedies. Homeopathic pain management remedies must match the exact symptom set to be effective. Both acute and chronic pain syndromes can be treated with homeopathic pain management. Composed of nontoxic, natural plant, mineral and animal substances, homeopathic pain management enhances the body’s self-regulatory processes and is an increasingly used complementary therapy. Homeopathic pain management reduces inflammation and facilitates healing. Regulated since 1938 by the FDA, homeopathic pain management remedies are proven to be safe to treat a wide range of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, atopic dermatitis, allergies, and minor injuries such as cuts, muscle strains and sprains. Homeopathic pain management can combat the loss of energy due to the lack of rest or sleep and reduce the increased stress levels that accompany common pain syndromes. Homeopathic pain management remedies not only offer relief from temporary pain disorders but can enhance long term healing. Homeopathic pain management remedies also reestablish normal immune system functioning and stimulate the body’s natural defense system. Homeopathic pain management remedies can effectively treat many pain syndromes, including tissue inflammation, physical injury and nerve pain.

Oriental Medicine For Hypertension

Posted September 13, 2007 by Acupuncture & Massage College & filed under Herbs & Medicine

Over 50 million Americans have hypertension, blood pressure measuring above the normal range. Nearly one-third of individuals are not aware they have it. High blood pressure can develop without noticeable symptoms over several years. Only when blood pressure is severe do warning signs such as irregular heart beat, nose bleeds, dizziness, and headaches appear. If untreated, hypertension can lead to strokes, heart and kidney disease. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is used clinically for the treatment of high blood pressure and related circulatory conditions. Based on TCM theory, high blood pressure and related symptoms are regarded as manifestations of an underlying health condition. Treatment aims to not only alleviate symptoms but also to treat the root cause. TCM offers a prevention-oriented, holistic approach for the treatment of hypertension which determines the imbalance of the entire body system. Hypertensive imbalance is due to the improper function of the digestive system, kidneys, liver, and heart. According to TCM, blood circulation is a result of qi flow through the body rather than blood pressure. As the liver controls the blood in TCM, circulation health conditions typically arise from a disharmony in the liver. Medical studies suggest that high blood pressure results from the feedback regulation that takes place when blood supplies to some organs, such as the heart, brain and kidneys, are imbalanced. This regulation is a compensatory body reaction which results in a hypertensive state. The proper treatment of hypertension is to return blood supply of the heart, brain and kidneys to normal. TCM lowers blood pressure by regulating the entire body. TCM treatment methods, such as acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, are natural, safe therapies with little side effects, especially suited for hypertensive patients who have kidney or liver complications. When treated with TCM modalities, patients experience a gradual lowering of blood pressure. Acupuncture treats elevated blood pressure by regulation of the whole body, including the nervous and endocrine systems.
