Ease General Aches and Pains with Acupoint Therapy

Whether you overexerted yourself pulling weeds in the garden or just have residual soreness from an illness, acupoint therapy can help treat those general aches and pains. Sure, you can take a few over-the-counter pain relievers but what do you do when they wear off? And, do you know how dangerous overuse of Acetominophen or Ibuprofen can be? By treating yourself with an electronic acupuncture device like the Aculife, you can take care of those aches and pains for the long term.

Biology of Aches and Pains

Aches and pains can occur due to a variety of factors. For instance, repetitive movements can fatigue your body, like painting a ceiling which requires your arms to be over head for long periods of time. Excessive muscle stretching or injury from such pursuits as lifting weights or returning a serve in tennis too enthusiastically can also cause general aches and pains. Your muscles, when stretched beyond the norm too quickly, can form tiny tears causing pain and even inflammation in the area.

Of course, a number of ailments can cause body aches and pains too. Viral infections like the flu or common cold create pain because your body is using all its resources to fight infection. Arthritis is caused by inflammation in the joints and can hurt to varying degrees depending on the severity of the disease. Basically, aches and pains are your body’s way of telling you your health is not in total balance.

How Electronic Acupuncture Can Help

The Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapy device employs electromagnetic wave impulses delivered to key acupoints along the hand and palm that correspond to other areas of your body. Because aches and pains are the result of blocked energy (qi) in your body, the goal is to release those blockages, thereby easing pain.

While you could find a traditional Chinese medicine doctor specialising in acupuncture, your aches and pains could also be served by self-treatment that you can conduct at any time – on your own schedule. You would not have to suffer long through aches and pains if you had an acupoint therapy device like the Aculife.

Soothe your Stomach Ulcer with the Aculife Electronic Acupuncture Device

If you experience a burning or painful clawing sensation in the abdominal area that is especially awful within a few hours of eating, you likely have a stomach ulcer. While drinking milk or popping antacids can help pacify the ache temporarily, what do you do when the effects wear off? In addition to treatment by a medical professional, you need to find something that will help with the pain in the long-term as the ulcer heals. An electronic acupuncture device like the Aculife is an excellent complementary remedy that can soothe your stomach ulcer pain.

Typical Causes of Stomach Ulcers

Contrary to popular belief, an ulcer is not caused by stress or an improper diet full of sodas and spicy foods. Rather, the primary cause is typically an infection by specific bacteria called h. pylori. This bacteria weakens the protective layer in the stomach, thus allowing the corrosive stomach acids to form a sore, or ulcer.

Another cause of stomach ulcers is the long-term use of NSAIDs or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like over the counter pain relievers.  Of course, alcohol abuse, physical injury and cancer treatment like radiation can also contribute to the formation of ulcers. While it is important to get medical treatment, the medications involved may take a while to heal the ulcers as well as reduce the pain you experience during the healing process. It is for this reason why using a device like the Aculife can be so vital.

Electronic Acupuncture and Ulcers

A stomach ulcer means that one or more meridians in your body are likely blocked. When this happens, your life energy called qi cannot flow properly to allow for healing and pain relief. You can work to re-open these energy pathways by using the Aculife and directing its electromagnetic wave impulses into key acupoints in the hand and palm. With the hand map included with the device, you can accurately pinpoint the most vulnerable acupoints so that you experience optimal relief. Consider adding electronic acupuncture as a complementary treatment to soothe your stomach ulcer and promote healing.

Ease Vertigo Suffering with Acupoint Therapy

Have you ever had the feeling of being on a tilt-a-whirl at a carnival, only you were absolutely still? This type of sensation is known as vertigo and likely involves problems in the inner ear. There are a variety of causes so it is important to be examined by a medical doctor to pinpoint the culprit. However, once you have a diagnosis and have started a prescribed medical remedy, you can add an acupoint therapy device like the Aculife as a complementary treatment to ease vertigo suffering.

Understanding Vertigo

Vertigo happens when there is a mix-up in interpreting signals in the brain that were sent there by various sensory processes in the body. Your vision, nerves involved in motor movement and even the microscopic cells in the inner ear that detect movement and change in position all send signals to the brain and if communication from one or more of them gets jumbled up, vertigo occurs. Nausea is often a side effect.

Migraine headaches and injury to the head or ear can cause the dizzying spinning sensations as can simple ear infections. However, there are also diseases like Ménière’s which deal with fluid imbalances in the inner ear, or vestibular neuritis which involves inflammation of the inner ear nerves that can also be the problem. Even excessive use of alcohol and certain drugs or the withdrawal from them are contributors. While there are some medical treatments that can ease the suffering of vertigo, electronic acupuncture can help too.

Electronic Acupuncture and Vertigo

Because the basis of acupuncture is striving for qi, the balance of life energy within the body, it makes sense to look to this ancient Chinese treatment. Your qi is blocked in one or more areas of the body contributing to vertigo, and Westernized medicine may not always adequately reach these areas. However, by treating yourself with the Aculife acupoint therapy device, you can make great strides in easing your vertigo suffering.

You can use the accompanying hand map to pinpoint the best areas on the hand and palm in which to direct the Aculife’s electromagnetic wave impulses. While it may take a few sessions, this electronic form of acupuncture can help your body make sense of the signals being sent to your brain so that you can regain your balance and ease the nausea and dizziness of vertigo. It is necessary to remember that the Aculife should be used as a complementary treatment for vertigo, and seeing a doctor for a definitive cause is important.

Clear Up Skin Problems with the Aculife Acupuncture Device

You might be surprised to learn that you don’t always have to go with over the counter or prescription product to treat a number of your skin problems.  The skin is the largest organ on the body and because it’s porous, it’s important to be cautious about what you use on it. Using acupoint therapy to overcome skin problems could be advantageous.

  • There isn’t an ongoing cost,
  • You’re not using any toxins on your skin,
  • And best of all, there are many uses for this advice in terms of health, wellness, pain management, and more.

Insight into Skin Conditions

Your body is a complex biological machine and it can react to both internal and external conditions. For instance, you may break out in a rash or large hives from an insect bite while other people just get a small bump that doesn’t bother them much. How we react is based on a number of factors, such as immunological response and other factors such as  hormones, environment, and heredity.  This means that not all prescription and over-the-counter medications work equally on all people.

Acupuncture Skin Treatments

For example, both Rosacea and Eczema are caused by inflammation within the body tissues close to the skin layer. You can use the Aculife to direct the electromagnetic wave impulses it emits into specific acupoints in the hand and palm that deal with inflammation as well as the skin.  Because inflammation can be caused by allergic reactions or variances in blood pressure and dilation of blood vessels, you can also target the specific acupoints in the hand and palm that correspond to these particular areas. A hand map is included with the Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapist so you can accurately assess the best areas to treat and detect with. In essence, Aculife allows you to customise your own electronic Acupuncture sessions as home.

Calm Coughs with the Aculife Electronic Acupuncture Device

Coughing is one of the most aggravating symptoms.  While you can snooze with a headache, fever or even congestion, coughing is a major irritant that often disrupts sleep patterns and prevents you from getting adequate rest. In addition, coughing is a disruption for others. If you are experiencing a cough and prescription and over the counter medications are not alleviating it adequately, consider using your Aculife electronic acupuncture device to treat it.

Causes of Coughs

There are a variety of conditions that may precipitate coughing. Asthma is a common condition as is bronchitis. Sinus and allergy problems can cause coughing as can a lung infection, pharyngitis and even acid reflux. In order to use the Aculife effectively, you should have an idea of the underlying cause of your cough.

Often times, there are other symptoms presented that can lead you to a potential diagnosis. If you are wheezing and cannot catch your breath sometimes but there are no other symptoms, you may have asthma. Bronchitis may cause wheezing as well as the production of phlegm with your cough. Fever, fatigue and chest tightness may accompany your bronchitis cough. You may develop a cough after a cold, bacterial infection or some other virus.

Your lungs are the primary organs involved when you cough. Therefore, it is important to treat the acupoints in the hand that correspond to lung function. For example, two key areas are located on the palm in between the index and middle finger as well as between the middle and ring finger. There is also a key area on the inside edge of the thumb pad as well as three places corresponding to coughing and respiratory distress on the outside edge of the thumb.

Other areas to treat include spots on the palm for the left and right lung in addition to the windpipe. The Shao Shang spot just below the right edge of the thumbnail should also be treated. When you deliver the electromagnetic current to these acupoints, you will feel varying levels of sensation. You should spend the most time on those spots that experience the strongest feelings before moving to the secondary areas.

Some people may experience relief from coughing in the first session. However, it is more realistic that you will find relief within a few days. Of course, before using the Aculife device to treat your cough, make sure that you do not have an underlying medical condition that requires prompt treatment from your doctor first and have a look at the Aculife book as well. Electronic acupuncture is not a cure-all but rather an effective complementary treatment for a variety of symptoms, including your cough.

General FAQs on the Aculife Electronic Acupuncture Device

You may think the Aculife is based on science fiction; however, it is an effective treatment tool for a variety of health conditions. Please note that it is not meant to supersede the advice of your doctor. You should get some answers for those unanswered questions you might have about this electronic acupuncture device before you start self-treatment.

How does it all work and is it safe to use?

The Aculife’s handheld wand delivers a magnetism and electric current to specific acupoints in the hand which works to improve blood circulation and unblock meridians to restore the flow of life energy. The contract and relax response boosts the immune system as well as alleviate pain. The device is quite safe to use for the average person but people who are pregnant, have a pacemaker, experience hemorrhagic problems or have a malignant tumour or tuberculosis should not use it. In addition, children under the age of 3 and chronic alcoholics should not try the Aculife.

How long do you use the Aculife and how do you know it is working?

You can utilise the relief mode of the Aculife for about 90 minutes a day, although one 15-30 minute session is fine. It is best to use the device every day for two weeks as it can take time to notice a difference in treatment effectiveness. Be advised that you will feel a strong sensation in the hand at first but this will decrease over time as your treated condition improves.

Are there side effects and will treatment of the left hand and ear really cover the entire body?

The electromagnetic waves delivered by the Aculife are not invasive so there are no harmful side effects to report. Some people may experience a light skin rash after an Aculife session and while rare, it will typically disappear within an hour. Treatment with the device can cover the entire body, because all major body organs and functions can be traced to acupoints located on the left hand and ear. While treating the right hand and ear is possible, the left side is more sensitive and receptive to the electromagnetic wave impulses.

Why do I get strong sensations on my hand or even a prickling feeling in my ear?

Conditions have to be controlled when using the Aculife as outlined in the manual. A strong sensation felt in the hand could be due to dampness on your palm or because you may have set the power level too high. You just also may be more susceptible than others. Dry your hands and make adjustments to the settings before trying again.

The prickling ear sensation could be a loose connection with the ear piece. You may have to try a different size to insert into the ear or put some lotion on the ear plug before re-inserting to ensure a snug fit.

What other things should be known when using the Aculife?

You should not use the device on an empty stomach or when you are extremely tired. In addition, if you eat a meal, wait at least an hour before using the Aculife. Be sure to remove any metal jewellery in your ears and on your fingers and hands before turning on the device. You might want to rest a bit after your electronic acupuncture session as well as drink a glass of water. Room temperature water is best for quicker rehydration. If you follow these tips as well as others outlined in the Aculife user manual, you will achieve maximum effectiveness with the Aculife.

The Aculife Device and its Healing Principles of Yin Yang

Acupuncture has become an accepted complementary treatment for a variety of health conditions and with the Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapist, you can employ this treatment in the comfort of your own home. However, instead of needles, you use a handheld wand to deliver electromagnetic wave impulses into key acupoints in your hand. These acupoints link to key body functions, following the ancient Chinese philosophy of Yin Yang.

Defining Yin Yang

The ancient Chinese used Wu Sing, a philosophy based on the five elements of life, in their healing practices like acupuncture. They believed the five elements – earth, gold, water, wood and fire – represented the life energies that exist in all living things. Each one was considered contrasting forms of nature or an expression of Yin Yang.

Earth symbolises balance, regulating all the elements, and serves as the axis of the cycle of nature. It is at this time that the spring and summer energies of Yang segue into the autumn and winter Yin energies. Gold symbolises a state of cleansing and linked to autumn when life energies are cleansed and stored for the coming winter. Gold also stands for prosperity, wealth and warmth.

Water is linked to intense Yin energies and winter and represented by rest and tranquillity. This element is meditative and promotes good fortune. Wood represents the spring season and rebirth, specifically the start of Yang, a time of growth. Fire is the most potent of elements, symbolising the summer’s heat and verve, making it Yang energy at its strongest.

How It All Works

Following Yin Yang, each of the elements ties strongly into a principle organ of the body and also ties into balancing body part as well as an exterior manifestation. For example, with the Earth element, the primary organ is the spleen with the balance being the stomach and the external physicality being the muscle. Gold ties into the lungs balancing with the large intestine and the skin. Water directly links to kidneys, then the bladder and eyes for the external tie-in. Wood represents the liver, then the gall bladder and eyes. Finally, fire’s primary organ is the heart with the balance being the small intestine and the external part being the tongue.

Each primary organ ties into several major body functions. Therefore, when you self-treat with the Aculife device, you should determine your primary malady and then trace the problem back to one of the primary elements. Using the hand map that accompanies the device, you will then be able to pinpoint the correct acupoints and treat your condition and restore Yin Yang within your body.

Aculife – A Great Complementary Treatment for your Alopecia

Many people are self-conscious about losing their hair, particularly when they are still young. A condition called alopecia is the medical term for losing your hair and there are a variety of causes from medical conditions to stressful psychological issues. While there are varieties of prescription and over the counter treatments, you might want to consider adding electronic acupuncture as a complementary therapy. The Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapist is an effective device that would allow you to treat your hair loss in the comfort of home.

What Many Doctors Say about Alopecia

Many doctors view alopecia as an auto immune disorder that attacks the hair follicles causing hair loss. The underlying cause could be an iron deficiency or an excess of vitamin A in your body. A defective gene in your DNA makeup is another possibility. Sometimes, thyroid function is blamed for hair loss as well as hormonal changes. A fungal scalp infection can trigger alopecia as well as lupus or radiation therapy.

Acupuncturist Views

Many acupuncturists believe that alopecia can be the result of energy imbalances in the body. If those imbalances could be corrected, hair would grow back. However, because each person who experiences hair loss may have imbalances in different parts of the body, using the Aculife device is your best option for self-treatment.

You can use electronic acupuncture to experiment on different acupoints along the hand and palm until you happen to find the areas where you feel the strongest sensation. A handheld wand of the device delivers the electromagnetic waves.

You can use the accompanying handmap to the Aculife to find specific spots which target potential hereditary causes such as kidney problems or faulty release of hormones by the endocrine system. You can target areas of the hand and palm that deal with the skin and blood flow.

If you have an idea of what is causing your alopecia, you can use that as a starting point when you work to identify the right acupoints with your Aculife electronic acupuncture device. The detection mode of the device may come in handy too if you do not have a clue as to the underlying cause of your hair loss.

Combat Insomnia with Electronic Acupuncture Self-Treatment

Counting those infamous proverbial sheep are not going to help you with your chronic insomnia. Even sleeping pills and herbal remedies are only short-term answers for your sleep issues. A natural, long-term treatment to consider is electronic acupuncture. The Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapy device is a great choice, particularly if you want to be able to treat yourself.

Understanding Acupuncture Principles

To truly understand how the Aculife can help your insomnia, you should understand the basic principles of acupuncture. The ancient Chinese discovered that the human body is divided into 12 main meridians, microscopic channels in which life’s energy (chi) flows. These meridians link everything together, branching off like a network from head to toes.

When you are ill or even fatigued, chi is blocked in one or more of these meridians. In traditional acupuncture, stainless steel needles are inserted into key acupoints throughout the body to treat a particular malady. For insomnia, there may be acupoints in the arms and legs, complementing each other to treat this sleep problem from several different directions.

Self-Treating with Acupoint Therapy

Electronic acupuncture devices like the Aculife focuses on the key acupoints on the hand and palm as this area houses the primary key areas for the major meridians. For instance, with insomnia, you would want to treat Shaochong, part of the heart meridian of the hand which is located on the bottom right cuticle of your left pinkie finger.

By referring to the hand map that comes with your acupoint therapy device, you can also target other key areas so you can effectively treat your insomnia from multiple directions. For instance, there is an area on your thumb palm-side which houses not only the fatigue acupoint but also an insomnia one as these two conditions are often intimately intertwined.

The cause of your insomnia will guide you as to where to direct the electromagnetic wave impulses that are delivered from the handheld wand of your Aculife device to your hand. However, what if you are not sure what the cause of your sleep problems are? The detect mode of your electronic acupuncture device can help you pinpoint potential health issues that could be contributing to your insomnia.

Treat Constipation Problems with Acupoint Therapy

Everyone has suffered at one time or another with constipation. Typically, extra fluids, an increase in fibre and the occasional laxative return bowel movements to normal. However, did you know that acupoint therapy with the Aculife device can help treat more chronic constipation problems?

Common Causes of Constipation

Millions of people suffer from constipation and there are a variety of causes you must consider before trying to treat the problem with over the counter laxatives. By far, poor diet and lack of adequate exercise are at the top of the culprit list. You must drink plenty of fluids as well as have a healthy diet with enough fibre to keep things moving through your colon.

Lifestyle choices also play a part in constipation. Perhaps you hold back the urge to eliminate because you want to finish a project or don’t want to use a strange bathroom. Maybe you have haemorrhoids and fear aggravating them. Other health conditions like stroke and irritable bowel syndrome can contribute to constipation issues. Certain medications can be added to the list too. The good news is electronic acupuncture is a great complementary treatment, particularly if you follow a good diet and exercise plan but still have constipation issues.

How the Aculife Works on this Problem

Acupoint therapy devices like the Aculife are particularly effective if you have a sluggish digestive system. By treating the acupoints that correspond to the large intestine meridian, you can stimulate your bowels and unblock chi to get things moving again.

One of the main trigger points for this particular meridian is the Shang yang located at the bottom right cuticle of the index finger of your left hand. There is also a spot on the palm of the left hand which corresponds to your intestinal tract. If you refer to the hand map which accompanies the Aculife, you will be able to find these spots on your hand as well as the specific area on your index finger that directly affects constipation.

Instead of relying on laxatives, which can eventually cause a rebound effect on your body, creating even more constipation and laxative dependence, self-treat this problem with acupoint therapy. With the Aculife electronic acupuncture device, you will likely be able to regulate your bowel schedule, finally finding some relief in the bathroom.
