Chinese Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture New York Treatment for Seasonal Allergies

June 4, 2012

Acupuncture New York is a very old medicinal procedure that is still widely used by a large number of people all over the world to treat many kinds of pain illnesses and disease.  This treatment enables the free flow of energy called chi by the Chinese throughout the body using energy vessels called meridians.  This free flow of energy is very similar to the flow of blood through the circulatory system albeit instead of the meridians convey chi.

The meridians and chi are intangible forces that neither have any visible anatomical structure nor any obvious manifestations that they exist.  The ancient Chinese though have been able to construct a map indicating the location of the acupuncture points in the body.  These points are very important and acupuncturists used them to help a specific health condition.  the right acupuncture points treated will result in the rebalancing of energy in the body, the removal of chi blockages and the treatment of the health condition including its symptoms.

The Chinese also believe in the yin and yang principle that are elements that comprise chi more like the negative and positive energy of electricity.  This duality often is in harmonic balance when a person is healthy and all his aspects, physical, emotional, psychological and even spiritual. Yin and yang are the cold and hot principles of nature.  There are organs that are categorized as yin organs and these organs are responsible for the cold, water passive principles.  The yang organs control the heat, fire, aggressive and dry aspects of the boy.  The yin organs comprise the kidneys, lungs, spleen, liver and heart; the yang organs are composed of the stomach urinary bladder gall bladder and small and large intestines.

The way the yin and yang organs work in harmony with each other determine the balance of health of the body.  A relative harmony and the right amount of yin and yang energy in the body means that the person is in a good state of health.

When infections occur, the bacteria or virus often have a yang or heat orientation.  The infiltration of these microorganisms leads to an imbalance in yin and yang with yang becoming excessive which yin is unable to balance.   Furthermore these foreign infiltrates generate toxins in the body which also causes sickness in the body.

Acupuncture combined with Chinese herbal medicine helps address the heat and cold imbalance of heat by lessening the heat produced by the bacteria or virus.  The blockages caused by the infection are also unblocked and enabling chi and blood flow to improve once again in the body.  The balance of yin and yang as well as the removal of energy blockages that allow the free flow of blood and chi in the affected organs all lead to a strong immune function that helps the body resist the pathogens and allergens that cause seasonal allergies
