more mainstream amongst patients and doctors alike. While the World Health Organization (WHO)
has endorsed acupuncture for pain treatment since 1979, the acceptance of Eastern Medicine
in collaboration with Traditional Medicine practiced by medically trained doctors is
on the rise and for good reason. Whether it be cupping, ayurvedic practices,
mind and body therapy such as meditation or alternative pain treatments such as acupuncture,
there is no doubt that patient’s and doctor’s focus has shifted a bit and a more holistic,
integrative approach has become more popular. In July 2018, the Mayo Clinic published an
article titled “Integrative Medicine. Alternative Becomes Mainstream”, which explained
the fact that “alternative” is a moving target, as what was once considered “alternative”
or a “last resort” is now part of the norm, much more than it ever has been before. Acupuncture has become a safe alternative
to pain management, especially given the dangers or managing pain with opioids, such as addiction
and even death. Since acupuncture poses little to no risk
when performed safely, it should be looked at as an initial course of action, rather
than a last resort. You may be wondering how acupuncture actually
works and if it can relive your issues with chronic headaches. Acupuncture has been used as an alternative
treatment for pain for over 2,500 years. It is a main component of Traditional Chinese
Medicine, in which it is said that our body is made up of “qi”, or “life force”. TCM considers our qi to be the energy flow
between our internal pathways, or “meridians.” When these pathways become blocked, due to
an imbalance of our yin and yang, our qi cannot flow freely, and can manifest as pain. Acupuncture is essentially the practice of
stimulating your specific acupressure points. with thin needles, to release the stagnant
energy and rebalance your body. Acupuncture can relieve a multitude of symptoms
resulting from imbalance, and is often used to successfully reduce the occurrence of headaches. This is a relief to so many headache sufferers,
especially those who cannot tolerate the medications or sideeffects of the medications often prescribed
for chronic headaches. WebMD notes that 3.5 million Americans have
had acupuncture treatments in the past year. According to Ka-Kit Hui, MD, and founder and
director of UCLA Center for Eastern and Western Medicine, acupuncture “activates the body’s
own self-healing mechanisms” and is an excellent alternative to drugs. As mentioned, the practice of acupuncture
involves the insertion of very fine needles through the skin, at specific acupressure
points. While Eastern Medicine touts the pain reliving
benefits of this practice to the release of stuck qi, Western Medicine states that the
beneficial effects are a result of the stimulation of nerves, muscles and tissue. This stimulation can boost your body’s natural
painkillers (endorphins and oxytocin), reliving you of your pain. Regardless of which school or thought you
choose to belong to, the results are the same and can provide great relief. Acupuncture helps heal your headache issues
in a few ways. 1. Stimulates the nerves to release endorphins. 2. Specific pressure points can be manipulated
to relieve headaches. This pressure point in particular is located
between the thumb and index finger and can even be stimulated by applying pressure to
this area with the opposite hand A study done by medical acupuncturist V. Korostyshevskiy,
MS, LAc, determined that after treatment, patients’ headaches resolved for months
or even years after only several treatments, if the acupuncturist finds points to stimulate
that can reproduce each individual patient’s exact symptoms of the headache. These trigger points can be found with the
fingers placed on the neck. While there are still skeptics out there who
call acupuncture a “sham” treatment, it is an indisputably safe and effective alternative
treatment for many. For those suffering with chronic headaches,
it would be beneficial to your health and wellness to first try acupuncture for relief,
before consuming perhaps unnecessary medications that may have adverse effects. The collaborative and complimentary efforts
of medical doctors and integrative practitioners will provide a much more holistic and comprehensive
treatment approach, attending to potential causes and not just symptoms, which can ultimately
result in better health care and well-being. If you’ve liked the video give it a thumb
