Magnotherapy & Acudetox Can Help A Child With ADD/ADHD

Magnotherapy involves the application small magnets in specific acupuncture points on each ear. The best complementary treatment for this procedure is the Acudetox (Acupuncture Detoxification) technique in which five needles are stuck into predetermined acupoints in both ears.

In certain instances, an electronic pointer is used in children who are scared of needles to stimulate the acupoints. However, it is essential to point out that electro stimulation is a less effective treatment than traditional needling acupuncture. Normally, treatment will last about 45 minutes. Thereafter, small gold magnets are attached on the shen men point on the ear’s posterior.

One may require a total of 22 treatments one session each week for up to five months with the magnets being replaced each week. The magnets help balance the polarity of the brain’s right and left hemispheres helping maintaining the stability of the electrical function and chemistry of the brain.

Toxicity is the main culprit for most cases of ADD /ADHD. Unfortunately, a majority of the children with this problem suffer from learning disorders and are treated with ritalin and at times have to undergo psychiatric counseling.

ADD – Its Causes

According to Western medicine ADD/ADHD is the result of dysfunctional or unstable brain chemistry.

In Oriental medicine ADD/ADHD is due to a dysfunctional body. This means some of the body organs are improperly functioning caused by an imbalanced brain ability/function and chemistry.

Modern conventional therapies don’t have the means to detect the imbalances in the organs. What they can do is to measure the organ function’s polarity through the use of an electro meter/pointer/stimulator.

Various factors can bring about focusing, logical, and emotional impairment. They can include:

• Loss of interest due to lack of direction, purpose, or vision
• Loss of interest in life due to stress at home
• Poor management of behavioral boundaries by the parents
• Belief that failure will is inevitable in every endeavor undertaken
• Belief that there’s no point in living
• Lack of love or attention at home
• Poor self-esteem
• Poor diet
• Bad role models
• Distrust or lack of belief in the educational system, the feeling of being just a number
• Inability to fit into the group
• Undetected damage in the brain
• Asperger’s autism that’s undiagnosed or misdiagnosed
• Poor hearing or eyesight
• Low IQ

Addressing all these aforementioned factors can be very inconvenient and time consuming and this inconvenience is perhaps the most likely reason why parents resort to having their child on medication to address their unacceptable behavior. Each case of ADD/ADHD must be properly studied.

Magnetotherapy and Acudetox are very good in balancing the behavior, mind, brain, and body of the person when the cause of the ADD/ADHD is body imbalance. Usually the origin of an unbalanced body organ can be traced back as far as birth. Some kids are born with dangerous afflictions or various complications in which case, modern methods (such as drugs) are required stabilize, treat, or even save the life of the child.

However, we need to realize that modern medications are chemicals that carry a lot of toxins. When they are given to help save the life of a child, in the long term, it leads to organ dysfunction of body toxicity (dysfunctional brain chemistry). According to Chinese Medicine, a healthy regulated organ function is a sign of a healthy brain chemistry function and body. Nowadays, brain and body dysfunction is very much widespread.

The air we breathe, the food and water we take, and especially the drugs we take can now be poisons to our body. When these elements cause ADD/ADHD, then Magnetotherapy and Acudetox are the best therapies that should be considered. Diet as well as parenting techniques and boundary issues should also be included in the treatment plan for ADD/ADHD.

Chinese Nutritional Therapy For Treatment Of Kidney Disease

Despite being responsible for so many things in our daily life, diet is not a thing that we spend enough time focusing on. Food therapy helps us choose the right foods to eat and guides people to good health. Kidney disease is a serious chronic medical condition that requires an appropriate care on diet.

Chinese Nutritional Therapy

Chinese Nutritional Therapy is a component of an ancient Eastern medical system known as Traditional Chinese Medicine. This therapy aims to achieve healing through consumption of natural foods rather than the use of drugs. It is designed to improve a patient’s diet and it is not about going on a diet. It allows them to eat easy to prepare and tasty food that everyone can enjoy and be bought from any local market. Chinese Nutritional Therapy is all about enhancing health and wellbeing without yielding all the good stuff.

How is Chinese Nutritional Therapy Applied?

From the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Vancouver, foods are sorted in two types – Yin food and Yang food. On the one hand, the Yin type of foods is believed to reduce the heat in the body; on the other hand, the Yang types of food are known to increase body heat. The goal of Chinese Nutritional Therapy is to preserve the balance of Yin and Yang in the body by using the both types of food in a proper way. When one eats too much Yin food, he might become anemic or lethargic; conversely, when a person eats lots of Yang food, he might suffer from bad breath and acne.

Benefits Gained From Managing Kidney Disease

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the kidneys are the center of the Yin and Yang of the body – the origin of life. The basis of the whole body’s Yin fluid is Kidney Yin, which nourishes and moistens the tissues and organs. The basis of the Yang energy (Chi) of the entire body is Kidney Yang, which promotes and warms the functions of the tissues and organs.

Aliments develop in the renal tissues when the Kidney yin and yang is out of balance.

Chinese Nutritional Therapy can aid in restoring Yin and Yang balance in the kidneys by either increasing or lessening the consumption of Yin or Yang foods. This idea that foods have an intrinsic “hot” or “cold” or “yin” or “yang” quality is widespread throughout mainland China. This viewpoint has been adopted by other kinds of food therapies in order to treat different kinds of kidney diseases. Chinese Nutritional Therapy recipes are infinitely varied and the use of a recipe will be based on the taste and health benefits needed for the patient.

What to Expect From Chinese Nutritional Therapy

Chinese Nutritional Therapy is designed to spark a lifetime of change centered on your health, your attitude toward food, as well as your eating habits.

The Benefits That Can Be Gained From Chinese Nutritional Therapy Include:

• The chance to learn how to prepare delicious, easy to make, quick, and healthy meals
• A renewed relationship between your kidneys and food
• Improved wellbeing and health
• Increased energy and a new zest for life
• An assurance in knowing the food one eats will support his kidneys.
• Sustainable and new healthy habits that will improve your kidney conditions in positive and dramatic ways

The Syndromes Associated With Cold

The pernicious factor known as cold is considered a pathogenic yin qi. Its nature is to slow down movement, causing contraction, tightness, stagnation, and weak circulation. Cold can invade the lungs, skin, and muscles when it is an external pernicious factor. Cold can also cause disorder in the regular functions of the kidneys, abdomen, and spleen when it is an internal pernicious factor.

Cold Syndromes

1. Cold Clotting the Liver Meridian: The genital area is one of the regions where the liver meridian passes through. This syndrome is an indication of cold in that meridian. Hernia pain and testicular pain are some of its symptoms. Herbs, acupuncture, and moxibustion can resolve this imbalance effectively within a short period of time.

2. Cold Invading the Abdomen and Spleen: Cold wreaks digestive symptoms such as watery diarrhea, clear vomit, and stomach pain in this externally induced syndrome. Despite being usually caused by an externally contracted abdominal bacteria or virus (commonly referred to as abdominal flu) or cold, this syndrome can also be brought about by eating ice cream and other types of cold food.

3. Blockage Due to Cold: This condition, which is traditionally called cold blockage (bi) pain, usually manifests as joint pain or body aches that is palliated by warmth. Arthritis is the usual Western diagnosis for this pattern of disharmony. The pain usually exacerbates in cold weather and the cold can actually feel cold to the touch since this syndrome is exclusively caused by cold. The aim of Chinese medicine is to warm the meridians wherein blood and vital energy (chi) flow and boost circulation by means of herbal remedies, acupuncture, and moxibustion in Orlando.

4. Wind Cold: Combined with wind pernicious factor, cold invades the body’s exterior as well as the lungs, causing a congested nose, stiff neck and shoulders, upper body aches, pain at the base of the skull (occipital headache), lack of perspiration, and chills. The effect of wind results in the symptoms suddenly reappearing and affecting the upper body resulting in muscle contraction that causes the pain and stiffness. This syndrome causes clear nasal secretions which is one sign of cold. The plan of treatment is to expel the wind and diffuse the cold with moxibustion, acupuncture, and warm diaphoretic herbs.

5. Deficient Kidney Yang: This syndrome can make the person especially susceptible to cold. This is because the kidneys are where yang metabolic fire for the whole body originates. Symptoms include pain in the lower back, fluid retention (edema), frequent urination, weak sex drive, cold limbs, and an inability to stay warm. Deficient kidney yang can be rectified with the intake of herbs and long-term application of moxibustion that tonify kidney yang, thereby reinforcing metabolic fire.

6. Deficient Spleen Yang: Cold can seriously weaken digestive function especially if there is an underlying spleen yang deficiency (heat and energy deficiency required in order to digest food). Symptoms of this syndrome include a slow pulse, edema, cold limbs, and watery stools with undigested food. When external pernicious cold is combined with this underlying deficiency, the imbalance can be quite difficult to cure.

The first aim of treatment is to eliminate the cold pernicious factor. Then, the kidney and spleen yang should be tonified to give rise to a long-term boost in the basic metabolism of the body, or its potential to retain the heat required for healthy digestion, which in traditional Chinese medicine is known as metabolic (life-gate) fire. Deficient spleen yang is treated with warming herbs and moxibustion that tonify spleen yang.

The Two Components Of Jing

According to Chinese medicine, most cases of infertility are due to chronic patterns. We basically see systemic deficiencies such as cold in the system, poor digestion, and genetic deficiencies are also some of the factors that contribute to fertility problems.

The Chinese medicine principle of yin and yang are gathering the opposing pathology and physiology into a system of balance, combining opposites in the way of Taoism. Yin basically represents internal signs, cold, and vacuity, while the yang represents external signs, heat, and excess. They aren’t considered as patterns of excess as much as they are viewed as deficiency. Excess yin, therefore, is yang deficiency with signs of slow, deep pulse; white, moist, pale tongue; copious, clear urine; and pale, cold complexion. Excess yang or deficient yin will manifest as a red tongue body; agitation; red face; and heat. In genuine excessive yang, the pulse will be forceful, quick, and surging; the entire face will appear reddish; and there will be signs of fever. In genuine vacuous yin, there will be no coating on the tongue, heat, and a malar flush.

Chinese Medicine Infertility Treatment

To understand the patterns that most frequently manifest that causes the problems of infertility you also need to have an understanding of the functions and action involved. This helps develop the differential diagnosis.

Kidney

The kidneys have a couple of aspects that are vital for fertility. They are a component of the essence or Jing that has both a yin and yang aspect.

The pre-natal chi is one component of the Jing that we inherited from our parents. This prenatal chi has a yang polarity and is known as the Ministerial Fire. This gives us the power to ‘spark’ conception. Acquired essence is the other component of Jing that is derived from the nutrition and food we take in and is converted by the stomach and spleen. Acquired essence is a substance that has a yin polarity.
