Acupuncture is a common Chinese medicine that is used for a vast majority of reasons throughout the United States. Someone who is less knowledgeable in this area will more than likely understand that acupuncture is a method that eases pain or stress by placing needles in certain pressure points throughout the body to relieve tension. However, what many people don’t know is that acupuncture can be used as a method of healing for multiple ailments of the human body. From upper respiratory tract issues, to gastrointestinal disorders, and even problems found within the mouth. At HPI Acupuncture, the main goal is to return or maintain your body to a healthy state. Before receiving oral medicines, consider trying acupuncture.

Upper Respiratory Tract

One of the many things HPI uses acupuncture to cure is upper respiratory tract problems. These include things like the common cold, bronchitis, bronchial asthma, and acute sinusitis. While this method of healing is most effective in young children, they are also a great option for adults suffering from these illnesses. Acupuncture is used in these cases to help rebalance energy and to regulate the Qi, as well as stimulate the immune system to bring the body back to its normal, healthy state. If you are suffering from problems in your upper respiratory tract, try acupuncture first before seeking medications, you will be surprised at what it can do!

Gastrointestinal Disorders

Although sometimes an uncomfortable thing to talk about publically, many people suffer from complications with constipation, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal disorders like spasms of the esophagus, hiccough, and acute, as well as chronic colitis. Acupuncture can be of use when people suffer from gastrointestinal disorders and may be something you should consider trying! Not only does acupuncture help alleviate the problems in this area, but it also helps ease pain of the problem area.

Disorders of the Mouth

When thinking about cures for mouth disorders, acupuncture is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. However, this form of Chinese medicine has actually been proven to help with toothaches, post-extraction pain, gingivitis, and acute and chronic pharyngitis. Not only does it help to alleviate pain, but it can also help to reduce symptoms of these oral disorders. Next time you have a toothache or find yourself with gingivitis, look into acupuncture and find out how it can potentially offer you some relief!
