According to the National MS Society, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system. It's thought to be an autoimmune disease; the body's own defense system attacks myelin, the fatty substance that surrounds and protects the nerve fibers in the central nervous system. When any part of the myelin sheath or nerve fiber is damaged or destroyed, nerve impulses traveling to and from the brain and spinal cord are distorted or interrupted, producing the variety of symptoms that can occur.

I was diagnosed with MS in 2000. My energy level hit zero and no matter how much I rested, it didn't help; lifting my arms was becoming a project. This kind of fatigue is difficult for most people to understand. To put it another way, if I were a car, my gas tank was empty and there was a huge hole in the tank that prevented it from being filled. My doctor advised me to go on Copaxone, an MS medication that can help slow the progression of the disease, but due to Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), I resisted. While the MS medications, such as Copaxone, Avenox, and Betaseron can be helpful, they do have many side effects.

Looking for an alternative path to improvement, I decided to investigate acupuncture and herbs. I became a patient of Dr. Henry Zhon-Hong Lee who is a NYS Licensed acupuncturist and also an NCCA DPL Herbalist. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice and Dr. Lee seems to have an innate ability practice it to its fullest potential. The insertion of micro-thin needles at specific points on the body rebalances the body's energy fields and stimulates its "Chi" energy. Restoring the energy pathways allows the body to relearn its own shortcuts to self-healing.

I have been seeing Dr. Lee for over three years. The results of the acupuncture treatments have been amazing; my traditional Western doctors no longer encourage me to use Copaxone. I am not saying I'm cured, but my overall health has improved. MS can be sneaky - it's important to know your limitations and live within those limits to try to prevent exacerbations (bouts), or at least keep them to a minimum.

As a patient, each of us is responsible for being aware of what our choices are. While Western medicine still looks down upon Eastern practices, acupuncture is slowly becoming recognized as a medical choice that is covered by many insurance companies. If you decide to try acupuncture make sure you find a licensed and qualified practitioner. And, be sure to discuss it with your family doctor or neurologist.

If you or someone you know has Multiple Sclerosis you can visit the following organizations for information and help:

Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA)
Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MSF)

The use of acupuncture for infertility problems is becoming more commonplace as the supposed wonders of IVF treatment continue to disappoint.

Not so long ago IVF was seen as the answer to the difficulties that many couples were experiencing in conceiving a child. But a number of recent reports, the latest being the February 2009 report from Dr Nargund, head of reproductive medicine at St George's Hospital in Tooting, South London, UK, have thrown doubt on the ability of IVF treatment to provide reliable help to childless couples.

According to Dr Nargund, "having IVF treatment doesn't make a lot of difference to the chances of having a child", and can even cause harm to mother or child, or both. There have been cases of cerebral palsy and premature birth, where many babies don't survive their first week. The longevity and quality of life of babies that do survive have also been called into question.

Acupuncture, on the other hand, has no known drawbacks or side-effects. It has been practised with great success for thousands of years in China and the far east, and more recently in the rest of the world. Now it is being turned to not just for regular ailments and illnesses, but as a proven aid to conception for couples experiencing infertility problems.

Why should this be? It's more than just the failure of IVF treatments to deliver what they've promised. It's the realisation that problems of human fertility require more than a "quick fix", that they are probably symptomatic of a deeper malaise within the individuals concerned, and that it is this that requires attention.

The key point is that, typically, couples who cannot conceive a child are healthy in other respects, so there is no obvious "cure" that can be directed at their problem, as is the case with nearly every specific disease. This is where an examination of the lifestyle of the couple is so important. Modern life, especially for young and not-so-young couples seeking to start a family, is often full of stress.

Stress affects the body in various ways, according to the individual's strengths and weaknesses. It causes tension and can lead to a lowering of resistance to disease and illness. Other factors typically play a part, such as personal hygiene and exposure to an unhealthy environment, but the main enemies are stress and tension.

Acupuncture recognises this, and teaches that most diseases and complaints arise when the flow of energy throughout the body is blocked. The blockage may be caused by an imbalance between the positive and negative energies, which is a good way of describing tension - the involuntary tensing of muscles in certain parts of the body.

This in turn restricts the flow of blood to the vital organs, including in some cases the reproductive organs. This can lead to low hormone levels, a feeling of tiredness and, worst of all, low quality eggs or sperm.

Acupuncture works to remove the blockages and free the flow of energy to the vital organs. Patients invariably feel relaxed and rejuvenated after just a few sessions at the hands of a qualified acupuncturist. Tests have shown that acupuncture treatment increases fertility. Whether you are undergoing IVF treatment or are trying to conceive naturally, your chances are considerably improved through acupuncture.

Though not necessarily a primary fertility treatment in itself, acupuncture has to be credited with being at the very least a powerful supplementary treatment that helps prepare the body and its reproductive organs to be in peak condition to pro-create.

Philip Gegan is a former UK lawyer who has come across some dark secrets relating to IVF and the treatment of childless couples which are disturbing yet at the same time offer fresh hope to those trying to conceive a child. He is helping to spread the word at http://www.fertilitywithoutivf.com.

Nature is our best friend; we all know this very well. As long as we remain close to it and help it, it will bless us. But these days due to the fast and modern life we are getting away from nature. The food we eat has largely become a synthetic product. Everything made up of preservatives added in it. No natural content remains in them any more. This has given rise to various illness and disorders in body systems. Junk and synthetic food mainly creates the digestive problems. These problems include constipation, weight loss, fatigue, dry skin, hair loss and muscle cramps.

These digestive disorders arise due to the imbalances in the organs of the system. A large no of medicines and therapies have evolved for treating such disorders. These therapies try to bring balance in the body systems. One of them is the acupuncture treatment. This treatment is very ancient one mainly originated in china and then spreading to all over the world. This treatment basically involves inserting pointed needle in certain parts of the body.

Acupuncture specialist believes that our body has certain energy points all along the body length from which energy flows smoothly. These points are termed as meridians. By inserting needles to such points acupuncture helps to bring homeostasis among the gastrointestinal disorders. It is believed that spleen is the actor in maintaining all gastrointestinal functions so any disorder in digestive system is treated with the treatment of spleen. The meridians mainly helpful in digestive disorders are stomach meridian, spleen meridian, large intestine meridian. Sometimes herbal medicines are also used in this treatment but for this you need consultation with acupuncture specialist. He will suggest you any medicine only after knowing about your life, lifestyle, previous medication, any allergies in the body etc.

Acupuncture treatment is very helpful in curing digestive disorders like bacterial infections, gastrointestinal infections, gastrointestinal bleeding, heart burn, gastritis, ulcers etc. This treatment is achieved by the secretion of gastric and other intestinal hormones in the body. When the needles are inserted in the body, it stimulates muscles contraction and relaxation. With such free movement of muscles, free flow of blood and lymph is generated. Through blood distribution in tissues, other substances like hormones, nutrients etc also reaches organs properly thus treating any discomfort in that organ.

Acupuncture for digestive and intestinal illness requires that you choose the best acupuncture specialist for you. Whenever you go for this treatment make sure that the person treating you is an experienced one and should also look for his previous one. He should be familiar with physiology and anatomy of the body. It is advisable for you to inform your acupuncture specialist for any allergy, or pain, or any other problem in your body so that he can start his treatment taking precautions about your problems.

Some people are concerned about the safety of this treatment as needles are inserted in the body which may be a carrier of various infectious diseases. If you get treatment with a known and experienced practitioner then he is well aware of the safety measures. He will use sterilized needles or one time use needles. After the whole treatment, he will clean the skin properly with dettol or any other antiseptic agent. Bleeding occurs in very rare cases but no need to worry in those cases also.

Our body is a complete unit with so many systems like circulatory, digestive, excretory, nervous and skeleton working in coordination. Although each system has different role but they are so much connected to each other that any impairment in one system can affect the working of the other one. Among all the systems circulation system has very important role as it helps in providing all the nutrients and oxygen to the each cell of the body. This only takes the pure blood to the tissues and carries away harmful toxins and accumulated waster out of the body. If this system is disrupted due to any reason, whole body gets affected.

Acupuncture treatment provides easy and simple way to repair this system. According to its principle, body has a network of channels which carry energy all along the body in the form of chi. This energy channels are termed as meridians. Any imbalance in the chi distribution is the main reason for body illness and disorders. These imbalances can be due to physical imbalances, emotional disturbances and poor diet. With acupuncture, needles are inserted in meridian points to direct the flow of chi to the most required areas of the body. With this, blockages are removed and circulation is also increased which solves all the other problems.

Poor circulation can result in various problems ranging from cold hands and feet to hardening of arteries and hypertension. Various studies have been performed to know the role of acupuncture for circulatory problems. It has been proved that it helps in increasing the efficiency and functional capacity of heart. Studies have shown that 80% of angina patients improved themselves after acupuncture treatment. Sometimes heart undergoes abnormal heartbeats like dropped beats, irregular heart rhythm, palpitations which are also corrected by this treatment. Acupuncture is effective in releasing arterial spasms especially in collateral vessels. It is beneficial in diseases like Reynaud's disease, therapy of ulcers in venous stasis. Some herbal medicines are also used along with this to detoxify certain compounds in the body.

This method of acupuncture treatment is not considered safe as sometimes insertion of infected needles can lead to lethal diseases. And some people move away from it to avoid the pain of pointed needles. But don't worry, there is just a slight tingling sensation felt while injecting but after that you feel pleasure when needles starts working inside. And infection problem occurs due to the lack of experience of your acupuncturist. If one uses sterilized needles or one time usable needles there is no worry about the infection.

Western medical practitioners have made certain modification in this acupuncture technique. Although the principle lays the same of the meridian system but they do not use needles to activate points. Several methods like electric impulses, heat, magnetic radiations, and laser beam are used specifically on the part to be treated.

You can also consult about this treatment while surfing on internet. There is a no. of health clinics which provide their services online. You can tell them about your problems and they will suggest you suitable acupuncture treatment according to your body symptoms. After that you can also find acupuncturists near by your areas so that it is easy for you to understand everything. Give this technique a chance to cure you and you will see how beneficial it is without any side effects and being so natural and healthy.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has a plenty of methods to treat hypertension; acupuncture is one of them.The practice of hypertension treatment by acupuncture can be generally divided into two types: one is to treat the symptom of high blood pressure; and the other, to treat the patient as a whole.

To treat the symptom of high blood pressure is more simple: some acupuncturists know that when certain acupoints are stimulated with needles, the elevated blood pressure will descend, so they always puncture on these points as soon as a diagnosis of hypertension is made; To treat the patienta s a whole is much more complicated, it must be based on differentiation of syndromes. An acupuncturist, by analysing the clinical phenomena of the cases, such as the symptoms and signs, including the pulse conditions and the tongue appearances, determine the type and nature of the case, and then choose an appropriate method to treat it.Chinese doctors have found that hypertension has four main types of syndromes:

1.Syndrome characterised by clinical phenomena such as dizziness, headache, flushed face and eyes, bitter taste in the mouth, restlessness, red tongue with yellow coating, taut and vigorous pulse.

2.Syndrome characterised by clinical phenomena such as headache, dizziness, dry mouth, restlessness, hot feeling in the palms and soles, palpitation, tinnitus, amnesia, sleeplessness, taut, thin and rapid pulse.

3.Syndrome characterised by dry and uncomfortable feeling of the eyes, dizziness, weakness of waist and legs, tinninus, hot feeling in the palms and soles, sleeplessness, red and dry tongue with little coating, thin and taut pulse.

4.Syndrome characterised by dizziness, headache, tinnitus, palpitation, tiredness, weakness of the waiste and legs, pale tongue with white coating, taut and thin pulse.

In China, the acupoints chosen most commonly to treat hypertension are divided into two groups according to their functions:The first group: those used to reduce the excessive yang.The second group: those used to supplement the insufficiency of the vital energy of the body (yin and yang).

In clinical practice, if the case is an excessive liver-yang syndrome, the first group of acupoints is chosen. If the case is a Yin -insufficient yang -excessive syndrome, both groups of acupoints are chosen to supplement the insufficiency. If the case is a Yin insufficiency syndrome of the liver and kidney, then the second group of acupoints are chosen, and reinforcing manipulation is used.

All these mentioned above is based on syndrome differentiation. This is an important principle for the treatment of hypertension by acupuncture.if hypertension is treated under the guidance of this principle, the effects is much better.

The treatment of hypertension by acupuncture has some advantages: for example, its effect is mild, the patients will not feel discomfortable when the elevated blood pressure is lowered. Furthermore, no side effects will appear when a patient is treated for a long time.However, it should be seen that the anti -hypertensive effects of acupuncture are limited. Generally speaking, its effects are better when the case is in the first stage. For those in the second stage or in the third stage, the effects are sometimes not satisfactory. Furthermore, for some complications of hypertension, its effects are not very good yet.
