Acupuncture has been found to be very beneficial for the respiratory system as it first finds the root cause of the problem, and a strategy is then developed to address this.
Respiratory disorders which benefit from treatment with acupuncture include the following.
Asthma: This is an allergic response to certain allergens such as pollens, dust, smell, etc. It can be of non-allergic and chronic type also. Acupuncture causes gland secretions, balances neurotransmission and sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous system, reduces allergic responses, and thus repairs the respiratory system. It reduces frequency and intensity of asthmatic attacks over a period of time.
Pulmonary disease: This is treated by balancing respiratory processes, increasing circulation, and increasing the vitality of the body. It strengthens the immune system to prevent further disease.
Bronchitis: This is caused by injury to the lung tissues. Although acupuncture cannot repair these tissues, it allows free air flow in the remaining tissue to keep it healthy. Treatments should be repeated periodically for long term benefit.
Acupuncture also offers solutions for sinusitis, common cold, emphysema, cough, shortness of breath, and other respiratory problems.
