Acupuncture - Why Should You Use it to Combat Pain?

Acupuncture - Why Should You Use it to Combat Pain?

Conventional medicine treats pain with the help of medications; by either blocking the transmission of pain signals in the body or by correcting the underlying problems caused by the pain in the first place. However, traditional and alternative forms of medicine such as acupuncture manage pain issues within the body through the means of redirecting disrupted energy flows. One of the very few forms of alternative treatments used in conjunction with conventional treatments, acupuncture is seen as a mercurial rise in popularity in the past few decades.

What is acupuncture?
Acupuncture dates back to ancient China, about 2500 years ago. It has been widely practiced there for a number of millennia, not only pain relief, but also for treating many ailments. Acupuncture isn’t just considered a form of therapy, but a holistic form of medicine. Acupuncture works on the principle of the flow of energy within the body, also known as ‘Qi’, in traditional Chinese medicine. Acupuncture strives to correct the disruptions in ‘Qi’ that may cause pain by manipulating over 2000 of the specific pressure points within the body with the help of specially created needles.

Where is acupuncture effective?
Acupuncture is very effective in treating a host of ailments, especially in relieving the associated pain. Some of the areas where acupuncture has proven its effectiveness are:
1. Treating nausea and vomiting caused due to chemotherapy treatment for cancer patients
2.  Very useful in treating post-operative pain caused due to dental procedures
3.  Rehabilitating patients who have suffered strokes
4.  Fibromyalgia (musculo-skeletal pain with fatigue accompanied by sleep and memory issues) 
5.  Effective in combating withdrawal symptoms caused due to addiction
6.  Pain from menstrual cramps
7.  Tennis elbow
8.  Osteoarthritis (a type of arthritis caused due to the erosion of tissues present at the ends of one’s bones)
9.  Pain of the lower vertebrae within the spinal column
10. Asthma

How does acupuncture work within the body?
According to modern medicine, the specific pressure points utilized by acupuncture within the body help in releasing chemicals that can block or at least reduce pain. It encourages the flow of chemicals from the brain, which act as nerve and pain blockers. It also helps stimulate the muscles and nerve endings, which can lessen inflammation and thus help in reducing pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an acupuncturist.

Painless normal delivery is possible only under few circumstances (like baby and mother well, labour progresses well etc). It needs well equipped hospital and doctor.

Hi dear. Welcome to lybrate. Yes there us a definite chance of pregnancy as there was contact of semen near the vagina. Even though the chances are slim but still there is a risk. Incase you not wish to conceive as yet it's best to take an emergency contraceptive. All the best.

Hello- Low breast milk supply can be due to certain illnesses, consumption of birth-control pills, certain hormonal changes in the body, nutritional deficiencies, improper latching position of the baby and infrequent breastfeeding due to cracked / inverted nipples. Certain galactagogue herbs (in ayurveda) like shatavari kalpa etc and specific tips like full milk diet can offer significant help in this condition.

The best and safest way a woman can do an abortion herself until the 12th week of pregnancy is with the use of two medicines called mifepristone (also known as the abortion pill, ru 486, mifegyn, mifeprex), and misoprostol (also known as cytotec, arthrotec, oxaprost, cyprostol, mibetec, prostokos or misotrol). If you live in a country where there is no access to safe abortion services and you would like to obtain a medical abortion with mifepristone and misoprostol, please go to women on web (www.womenonweb.org).

Hello it was not required as the chances of getting pregnant are remote on 3rd day of periods. Since she has taken the medicine, it will not have side effects.

I am 25 years old. my wife always licks and sucks my penis and drink my semen daily 3 times. Is it good. ?

Benefits to swallowing semen probably not. Some studies have claimed that swallowing the semen of a healthy male has no risk. Even going so far as to promote certain benefits of swallowing semen (e. G, supposed anti-depressant effects). However, other studies point out its potential risks. Fellatio (giving a man oral sex) can put you at risk for sexually transmitted diseases (stds) like hiv, herpes or hpv. Hiv can be spread through oral sex especially if you have an open sore, bleeding gums or gingivitis. Herpes and human papillomavirus (hpv) can be spread through skin-to-skin contact, including oral sex. And unfortunately hpv has also been linked, recently, to cases of throat cancer. According to the centers for disease control and prevention (cdc), hepatitis b can also be spread if infected semen or blood comes into contact with an open sore or cut in the mouth. So, to be on the safe side, if you have any doubt about your partner s std status, I encourage you to use a condom during oral sex until you ve both been tested, and treated (if necessary) for stds. Any querries ask privetly.

Regular Aspirin use may reduce Cancer Risk

A new study suggests that regular usage of aspirin is likely to reduce the overall risks of cancer a reduction that primarily reflects a lower risk of colorectal cancer and other tumors of the gastrointestinal tracts

And it also tells patients should be well informed about the potential side effects of regular aspirin treatment and continue their regular screening tests but aspirin should not be viewed as a substitute for colonoscopy or other cancer screening tests.

Hi Ms. Lybrate-user, ankylosis spondylisis is autoimmune condition can affect fertility, high risk of abortion, will next extra care while planning for pregnancy. Regarding baby it can be genetically transmitted to baby but having chances 30-40%. Option will be either go for ivf with pgd or natural pregnancy followed by early pregnancy test to see baby is normal or not.

Even during breast feeding have lots of fruits and vegetables. Avoid maids based items and fried stuff. If you had a normal delivery then you can start walking and exerting but if it was a caesarean operation then start moderate walking after 3 months.

Cause most miscarriages happen in 1.5 month are when the unborn baby has fatal genetic problems. Usually, these problems are unrelated to the mother. If mother have any infectio, infection, medical conditions in the mother, such as diabetes or thyroid disease, hormone problems, immune system responses, physical problems in the mother, uterine abnormalities.
