The World Health Organization lists hundreds of conditions that can be treated with acupuncture. Some of the conditions that affect breathing are infections, such as colds and flu, bronchitis, asthma, and eye, ear, nose, throat, and sinus infections. Patients with lung cancer could find acupuncture useful to strengthen their immunity and reduce the side-effects of conventional medicine.
According to traditional Chinese medicine, chronic respiratory conditions can arise from lung, spleen/pancreas, liver, or kidney deficiencies. Proper diagnosis is made from patient history, as well as examination of the tongue and pulse. Chinese medicine offers an effective adjunct to standard medical therapy. By regulating the internal deficiencies, boosting the functioning of the respiratory system, increasing circulation, and the vitality of the body, Chinese medicine will mitigate the development of this disease process. In addition Chinese medicine can help manage such symptoms as wheezing, shortness of breath, cough, and phlegm congesting in the lungs.
