Acupuncture for Detox Cleanse
People can detoxify their body with acupuncture. Acupuncture is a major treatment component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which has been practised about 3000 years. Studies have consistently shown the efficacy of acupuncture for detoxification.
Detoxification is a process that substance abusers go through in their fight to overcome their addictions. Many acupuncture specialists have seen significant improvement in drug and alcohol addicts after they have undergone just one acupuncture session.
The acupuncture process for detoxification is usually done by inserting small needles into certain areas of the ear by trained acupuncture specialists. The whole goal is to help speed up the body’s will to get rid of toxins.
Acupuncture has a natural diuretic effect. The procedure helps your body detoxify by the elimination of toxins through the urinary tract. This is why you will see a widespread use of acupuncture for drug detox programs.
An acupuncture treatment can help you to reduce appetite or cravings, even as it eliminates blockage of the Qi. Once you regain your appetite, you do not feel as much desire for foods normally associated with sources of toxins. When you eat toxic foods, you instantly get a feeling of heaviness in the body, as the energy flow is disrupted once more. When you consume proper food, you continue to feel energised. Your body learns quickly which foods provide the most benefit. This is why acupuncture for detoxification of the body is so effective.
Thirdly, acupuncture is said to be a useful technique due to the perceived "pain" involved. Talking about needles is enough to send a tingle down most people’s spines. Unfortunately, needles are the only effective instruments to reach the acupuncture points, which, although near the skin, may be inside muscles, tendons, or joint spaces. In reality, a well trained acupuncturist can make acupuncture a less painful and more satisfying experience.
When the needle comes into contact with an acupoint, you experinece a sensation of numbness, aching, tingling, or heaviness in the area. This is known as the arrival of the Qi. You may conjure in your mind that the contact is painful. However, it is actually a signal from your body on the presence of toxins. Toxins were probably ingested through harmful foods, additives, polluted air and/or water. Even simple bad habits can also cause you to develop toxins.
TCM practitioners highly recommend acupuncture as a means to detoxify your body. In fact, they say that the more toxins you have, the stronger you will feel the effect. Pain is percevied than real. Discomfort is actually waht is felt but it soon disappears in an instant. TCM practitioners say that this is evidence that acupuncture used for the detoxification of the body is taking place.

Insomnia is a form of sleep disorder where a person experiences difficulty in falling or staying asleep. Symptoms also include waking up often during the night and having trouble going back to sleep. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) recognises that insomnia stems from a fundamental imbalance of energy, or yin and yang qi.
Sleep is part of the natural rhythm of yin and yang qi in the body. Yin and yang qi play opposite roles – in the day, yang qi dominates as it fuels the body’s activities and keeps us warm and alert. However, as day turns into night, the cooling, quiet and nourishing yin qi dominates. It helps slow down the body’s activity so that it is relaxed and calm for a good night’s sleep. When this natural rhythm is disrupted, there is an imbalance of yin and yang qi, which results in insomnia.
Some factors that cause yin and yang qi imbalance:
Dietary habits such as overeating, heavy meals and consumption of caffeinated and alcoholic beverages
Emotions such as anger, sorrow and extreme happiness
Exhaustion from activities such as excessive exercise, or overstimulation of the brain
In TCM terms, underlying factors that contribute to the development of insomnia include:
Liver fire (“heatiness”)
Liver and gallbladder damp heat
Heart qi deficiency
Spleen qi deficiency
