Acupuncture is an ancient medicine. Acupuncture focuses on the theory that energy flow through meridians that map the human body. When there is a blockage in a meridian or lack of energy there is an imbalance. Imbalances can be manifested by having a cold or eczema or asthma or any condition that is a result of having a low immune system. An Acupuncturist inserts tiny needles into specific landmarks throughout the body that correlate with the meridians flow of energy. These needles stimulate the flow of energy which improves the quality of health.
Asthma can be a life long condition that one has to deal with. Inhalers of different strengths and medicines are often part of a daily regime for Asthma sufferers. Medication can seem like a burden and some people experience unpleasant side effects. For those looking for an alternative there are many! Acupuncture is just one of many alternative therapies that could lessen the effects of asthma and improve the quality of ones life.
Acupuncture does not need to replace your medication but it might improve your condition so that you are less reliant on medication.
Many studies have been carried out to determine whether acupuncture really improves the condition of asthma and the results are diverse. Some people receive improvement directly connected to their asthma symptoms, others received general health improvements and others saw no improvements. At the end of the day if you are looking for an alternative to the daily medication that accompanies the condition of asthma then give acupuncture a try and determine for yourself if it works.
