Current research points to acupuncture

Since stress has been linked with detrimental health effects including heart disease and even brain shrinkage it’s important to study any measures to combat its detrimental nature. Current research points to acupuncture!

You probably know someone – in your family or among your friends – who has had a heart attack or a stroke (a brain attack), or has high blood pressure. These cardiovascular diseases – diseases of the heart and the blood vessels – are killing more and more people around the world ; Every year, about 12 million people throughout the world die of a heart attack or a stroke. These diseases affect the poor as well as the rich.

Most people think that they are diseases of middle-aged men. The truth is that both men and women suffer from heart attacks and strokes. Women are much more at risk after menopause.

If you have ever had a heart attack or stroke, or had to care for someone who has, you will know that these diseases can seriously affect the life of both the patient and his or her family.

The good news is that you can take steps to help prevent heart attacks and strokes and acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine has a substantial role to play; In our modern world we need an integrative and holistic way to look at heart diseases because it is still the most fatal disease at this time and generates huge medical costs.

Its better to prevent a heart attack or stroke from ever happening. Prevention is always better than treatment, and most heart attacks and strokes can be prevented.

Research shows that a number of things make us more likely to have a heart attack or stroke. These are called risk factors.

Some risk factors are linked to choices we make in the way we live. The four most important lifestyle factors are:

  • Smoking and other tobacco use
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Lack of physical activity and stress

Poor lifestyle choices can lead to three serious physical problems:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High blood sugar (diabetes)
  • High blood fats (hyperlipidaemia)

These along with stress are the most important risk factors for heart attacks and strokes.

How can Acupuncture help in my recovery or prevent a serious problem ? Can I use it with medication from my doctor?

Both the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health recognize that acupuncture can be a helpful part of a treatment plan for Cardio vascular disease, specifically acupuncture reduces the stress hormone along with desernable physical affects like incresing blood circulation. Acupuncture can also safely combine with prescription drugs and other conventional treatments.
