How Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Can Save Your Marriage

Chinese Medicine is a powerful art. Not only can Chinese medicinal herbs and acupuncture help you with many physical ailments such as arthritis, backache or insomnia, it is also highly effective in helping to solve personal issues such as the disintegration of a relationship. …Seriously.

At this point people usually laugh a little and then ask, “How is this possible?”

Chinese medicine and acupuncture will help restore your relationship and save your marriage by calming your mind and emotions, supporting the organic functioning of your body to aid digestion and reduce stress, and assisting you in being clear about yourself and your energetic patterns.

Chinese medicine has many tools to help calm the mind. Acupuncture assists in the release of ‘feel good’ endorphins that ease anxiety and help facilitate the smooth flow of qi (chee) energy to the brain so you can feel more relaxed and make more appropriate decisions or have a more peaceful response to emotional triggers.

Let your acupuncturist know about your emotional struggles so he or she can include acupoints in your treatment that calm the mind and ease the emotional burdens on your spirit and include points that clear stuck liver energy and drain angry feelings.

Acupoints, like those located between your eyebrows and directly on the top of your head, help to make you feel more emotionally clear and relaxed. Practice stimulating these points when you are feeling angry or tearful and notice if these emotions pass.

Herbal medicine, including formulas like Xiao Yao Wan, (The Happy Wanderer formula) will help to nourish the blood and release stuck emotions of frustration or anger. See your Chinese medicine herbalist for a formula that is right for you. You may be given herbs for sleep if your relationship issues are keeping you awake at night or herbs to support your emotional boundaries so you can stand strong in face of resentment or ‘other people’s issues’.

Qi gong and tai chi are beautiful exercise practices to de-stress and calm the mind. The gentle movements of tai chi take you out of your usual thought patterns and away from your immediate problems and help you to focus for a short time on your breath and the movements of your body.

Ideally, these exercises give you a short break from the burdens of your relationship problems. Practice taking a few moments to sit quietly and focus on a deep inhalation and then exhale fully imagining you are releasing all your troubles with your breath.

Chinese medicine and acupuncture further aid the resolution of relationship issues by supporting the function of your body in digesting food in order to supply your body with the nutrients it needs to operate smoothly and by helping to provide a peaceful sleep. The better your nutrient supply is the less harm will be done by the emotions and stress you are feeling. Chinese medicine helps all the systems of the body to run more smoothly. The quality of your sleep and diet will have a direct impact on your emotions. You will feel calmer, kinder and more reasonable when your body is running well.

Chinese medicine and acupuncture have many tools to investigate the emotional make-up or constitution of a person. If you can become clearer on how your respond to certain issues you can see negative patterns in yourself and try to change them.

Negative emotions such as anger and resentment are thought to be a main cause of disease in Chinese medicine. By addressing your overall health with Chinese medicine and becoming more aware of yourself and your patterns, you will have the fortitude to respond differently to emotional triggers. Chinese medicine can be used for emotional therapy such as releasing held anger or old resentments.

You can also explore the Chinese zodiac and see what zodiac signs you and your partner are. Sometimes there are amazing clues hidden in this ancient science that help us understand why we react to certain people a certain way. You and your partner might be elemental opposites and therefore challenged from the start to mesh your energies. If you know the energy of the universe is presenting challenges by two people being conflicting zodiac signs at least you will understand where some of the problems lie and be a bit gentler on each other.

Chinese medicine and acupuncture will help you become clear about your needs and inner desires. Perhaps, in the end, the relationship needs to be terminated for your best health (and probably your partner’s too). The relationship ending can then be seen as a positive step. It is always sad when a relationship or marriage ends but if it is in the best interest of those involved then it is a positive move and will help the flow of qi in all areas of your life. Along with exploring Chinese medicine in your search for marital bliss, seek out a marriage counselor to address some of the specific issues between you and your partner.

Best wishes for health, happiness and peace on the home front!

Traditional Chinese Medicine – Is It Safe?

Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture continue to gain popularity among the American public for the treatment of diseases where mainstream medical therapies have had little success. Traditional Chinese medical treatments are based on the mystical belief that a cosmic energy called chi, flows through the human body and when its’ flow is blocked the result is pain and illness.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (primarily herbs) and acupuncture restore the body’s normal energy flow (chi) which results in illness being cured by allowing the body to heal itself. Acupuncture attempts to restore chi by inserting needles into specific points on the skin or on the outside of the ear. Although, traditional thought of as very safe, with few or no side effects a few medical authorities have recently challenged the long held belief that both methods are free of risk.

Surprisingly, there are a number of risks associated with acupuncture. Improper needle manipulation and handling can cause convulsions, localized infections, fainting, punctured lung and hematoma, which is localized bleeding that can shift along an organ’s length. In addition, if the acupuncture needles are not properly sterilized, Hepatitis B can develop. A few other risks include nerve damage and skin diseases. However, like any medical treatment if performed by a trained physician / practitioner, many studies have shown that acupuncture is virtually risk free.

The standards of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have not been fully approved by the FDA but then again the FDA has shown a bias against natural methods of healing and so this fact shouldn’t come as a surprise. Of course, acupuncture needles should not being used multiple times. Unfortunately, the attitude of many “traditional” doctors is that the certification process in becoming a certified acupuncturist is seen as a sham and that the whole field is more interested in making money by cashing in on the desperation of individuals who have not benefited from conventional accepted medical treatments.

As a result, the National Council Against Health Fraud has declared acupuncture an unproven method of treatment whose approach to healing are backward and unproven with the perceived positive benefits being nothing more than the result of the placebo effect and the patient’s own expectations.

On the other hand, Chinese herbal medicine, unlike acupuncture herbal Chinese medicine has surprisingly found favor among some researchers. Studies have revealed that herbal medicines rarely evoke any adverse reactions. In fact, they are clearly much safer than the vast majority of most pharmaceutical drugs. Modern and traditional herbal formulas are now available commercially for those of most any physical condition and age.

Chinese herbal medicines are currently being used to treat a wide range of health issues from pain, psychological disorders, immunity, digestive and gynecological problems to allergic conditions, childhood illnesses, respiratory diseases and addictive disorders like smoking and alcoholism.

An extremely successful aspect of Chinese herbal medicine is that pregnant women can use most with virtually zero risk.
