How does Chinese Medicine work?

Tong Ze Bu Tong; Bu Tong Ze Tong” Huang Di Nei Jing
 “If there is free flow, there is no pain; if there is pain, there is lack of free flow.”

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi (air or fluid) is stimulated at specific Acupuncture points to create a balanced flow throughout the body, this is said to balance the Yin and Yang of the body and create a smooth flow of Qi which brings the body, mind and spirit into a state of health and harmony.

Western Science has struggled to understand and prove how Acupuncture works, but the effectiveness of Acupuncture is continuing to be proven in clinical trials. [The Acupuncture Evidence Project] And many fascinating studies have discovered theories of the mechanisms and physical anatomy that seek to understand the Chinese Medicine ideas of meridians and Qi flow. These include a circulation system called the Primo Vascular System that circulates different hormones, amino acids, DNA and others throughout the body.

Acupuncture has been show to have an effect on our neurological system, including the brain and how it responds to pain, which is why it has such great effect on pain management. The US Army has deployed a system of Auricular Acupuncture called Battle Field Acupuncture which recruits the 5,000 year old treatments of pain relief during combat. US Army doctors observed that “80 percent of patients will experience at least a 50 percent reduction in pain”. [link] which, when combined with adequate care is a very effective pain relief technique. The anti-inflammatory effects of Acupuncture involve numerous mediators, receptors and signalling pathways, having an effect on natural opioids, endorphins, intestinal peptides and more. As we discover more about the body, this ancient and time tested medicine will continue to come into it’s own. And as opioid dependency and chronic illness grows, it is a system that we will continue to need.
