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.

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.

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.

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.

Manipulating Different Meridians through Electronic Acupuncture Can Help Treat A Variety of Ailments

If you are new to acupuncture, specifically electromagnetic wave therapy devices like the Aculife, then you should become more familiar with the different energy channels of the body called meridians. Understanding how they are linked, particularly to specific body functions will help you when self-treating for a variety of health complaints.

These microscopic channels carry your life’s energy called qi linking connective tissues throughout the body. This means there are intimate connections to every blood vessel, organ, gland, muscle and even the very elements found within these body parts. There are several primary meridians within the body that you should be aware of as they link the major organs of the body so that they operate in harmony.

Shao Shang

You must have a baseline in which to compare the readings from your electronic acupuncture device. The Shao Shang is your reference point and can be found near the cuticle of your left thumb when your palm is facing down. You touch the handheld wand to this point and should feel an intense sensation. Adjusting the controls of the Aculife device until the sensation is at an acceptable level creates your baseline sensation. Any feelings you get beyond that baseline when you run the wand over your hand and palm will indicate body functions you should investigate further for treatment.

Shang Yang, Shaochong and Guanchong

Shang yang is tied to the large intestine meridian and located near the cuticle of your left hand index finger. When stimulated with electronic acupuncture, you can treat conditions such as fever, ear and teeth pain, throat swelling and other pharyngeal conditions.

Shaochong deals with another major meridian – the heart – and can be found on the lower right hand edge of the cuticle on the left hand’s pinkie finger. Heart pain, stroke, palpitations and other thoracic conditions can be treated through this meridian. Guanchong is located on the bottom right hand corner near the cuticle of the left hand’s ring finger. This meridian is tied to conditions that affect the ear, head and tongue.

Another area that affects the ear and head, particularly for conditions like tinnitus, is Shaozo and the particular acupoint for this is located on the lower left corner of the cuticle area of the pinkie finger of the left hand. If you wish to alleviate pain and swelling as well as heat in the hand and arm as well as the ears and eyes, the shaoyang meridian should be targeted. It is located in the webbing area of the left hand between the ring and pinkie fingers.

To truly treat your whole body, understanding the different meridians is imperative. While the hand map that accompanies electronic acupuncture devices like the Aculife is an effective tool, review resources like Qi – The Journal of Traditional Eastern Health and Fitness, The Ying Yang House or Sacred Lotus Arts of Traditional Chinese Medicine for an in-depth look at the different meridians.

Resolve your Sex Problems like ED and Low Libido with Electromagnetic Wave Therapy

Sexual problems are quite commonplace given the daily stress and struggles everyone encounters. Sometimes, there is a health issue causing the problem while other times, no discernable reason exists. Men are lucky in that there is a popular prescription medication they can turn to for erectile dysfunction (ED) to help boost their libido and basically jumpstart their sex life. Women are not so lucky. However, in both cases, electromagnetic wave therapy can help breathe new life into their sex lives.

Typical Causes of Low Libido and other Sex Problems

Men and women may have specific health causes that affect their sex lives. For women, hormonal imbalances are a common culprit while with men, it could be their prostate. However, low libido and other sex problems can also be tied to more serious problems such as thyroid disease, heart issues, diabetes, hypertension, and even reactions to certain prescription medications.

The genital area is rich in blood vessels and very sensitive. When erectile dysfunction or lack of libido occurs, blood flow is typically restricted in this area, causing some loss of sensation. For men, their penis may not remain erect long enough for sex or even to achieve orgasm. In women, without the intense sensations felt in the vaginal area when blood flows freely, they cannot achieve an orgasm or become lubricated enough for pleasurable sex. Based on the ancient principles of acupuncture, an electromagnetic wave therapy device like the Aculife can help get blood flowing to the genital area to improve sex lives.

Electronic Form of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is based on the ancient Chinese belief that the human body is comprised of different energy pathways that connect all parts of the body. When the energy pathways are blocked, some type of health problem occurs. Tiny needles are applied to particular pressure points, also called acupoints, to break up the blockage to restore energy flow. The Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapist uses electromagnetic waves delivered through a wand instead of needles to achieve the same relief.

With the device comes a map of the hand and palm that indicates acupoints corresponding to specific areas of the body. Using the wand, a person with sexual problems can deliver the electromagnetic impulses to the acupoints that correspond to the genitalia. Opening the blocked energy pathways helps restore blood flow to the area, creating a situation more conducive to resolving low libido and ED problems. Magnetic wave therapy devices like the Aculife are exceptional complements to traditional medical treatments, particularly when an underlying medical condition is the cause of the sex problems.
