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.

Electromagnetic Acupuncture Therapy an Excellent Complementary Treatment for Nausea and Motion Sickness

Being sick to your stomach tends to put a damper on your plans and general well
being. Whether it is general nausea from a headache, a medical procedure or even
motion sickness, there are pills, wrist bands, skin patches and other remedies that
can be administered. However, what if those remedies do not work for you or you
just want a natural way to relieve your upset stomach? Consider self-treating with
electronic acupuncture, particularly the Aculife Magnetic Wave Therapy device.

General Causes of Nausea

A number of reasons could cause your nauseous feeling. Perhaps you are fighting
off the flu or some other ailment. Migraines and changes in the weather’s
barometric pressure typically lead to an upset stomach as a by-product. Motion
sickness riding in an airplane, on a boat or even in the back seat of a car can cause
stomach misery.

You might experience gastric distress from anesthesia after elective
surgery. Extreme pain from an injury or even watching someone else get sick can
cause mouth watering and stomach churning. Taking medication to combat nausea
is not always the answer as it can cause side effects such as headaches, dry mouth,
dizziness, drowsiness and even short-term memory loss. Instead of dealing with
possible side effects from other upset stomach remedies, the Aculife machine can
ease your nausea, using the ancient Chinese principles of acupuncture.

How Electronic Acupuncture Can Help

Your body is divided into meridians which are pathways in which your life’s energy
flows. When you experience nausea or stomach distress, it means that one of your
meridians corresponding to your gastrointestinal tract is restricted. The Aculife
device uses electromagnetic wave pulses delivered through a handheld wand to
break up those energy blockages to restore proper flow. Through the use of a hand
map, you can identify Acupoints, or which parts of your hand and palm correspond with your GI tract and treat accordingly.

It is important to note that some people who experience nausea such as pregnant
women or those with pacemakers should not use the Aculife. However, if you
are in general good health, you can typically use it for relief. When in doubt, seek the advice of your doctor about this natural complementary treatment for your nausea and
motion sickness symptoms.
