Acupuncture for Fibroids
Acupuncture, as the name suggests, is a method in which the skin is punctured using fine needles at specific anatomical points to heal certain symptoms associated with diseases. These anatomical points, also called acupuncture points, or acu-points, are believed to possess certain properties, often electrical in nature, which affects the natural chemical neurotransmitters in our body.
By far, acupuncture is allegedly one of the ancient healing techniques, most commonly practiced in the world these days. Its origin and roots lie in China, and gradually the concept of acupuncture treatment started gaining attention in different parts of the world. In fact, it has become quite a popular healing technique today. Acupuncture is based on theories of life force, the flow of vital energy and blood, and the importance of Qi in maintaining overall good health. Acupuncture often helps in correcting these specific imbalances when it is applied at the acu-points, which works to improve the flow of Qi in the body. Fast-track acupuncture treatment has become a specialty these days. For treating uterine fibroids in women, acupuncture can be an excellent remedy. At our acupuncture fibroids Singapore specialty centre, we believe that it is possible to shrink those fibroids and make sure they gradually vanish over time.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, fibroids are believed to have been caused by certain obstructions in the flow of energy and blood, and thus are further alleviated through different processes that remove such obstructions. When fast-track acupuncture treatment is performed near a particular site of uterine fibroids, it results in the reduction of proliferation of those abnormal cells to make the fibroids shrink.
Acupuncture is an extensive treatment course that mainly emphasizes on realigning the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis that controls the progesterone and estrogen levels in our body. When the level of estrogen is higher, or more than what it should ideally be, the fibroids start growing in size to cause pain. It may even inhibit implantation. It is very important to curb excess estrodial so that abnormal proliferation of cells can be gradually reduced. When acupuncture is performed, it is possible to naturally achieve complete healing.
In traditional Chinese medicine, fibroids are mainly considered as blood statis or blood stagnation inside the uterus. Now, blood stagnation may be caused due to other factors affecting the body, which includes cold (as cold can coagulate blood), stagnation of Qi ( it is Qi that moves blood, and when Qi flow is not proper, blood flow will be affected), excess heat ( tends to dry up body fluids) and other factors. Acupuncture can be effective in improving all these conditions to give you quick and complete relief.
