The traditional approach to medical sciences is slowly depleting due to scientific development in the medical sciences. But, these traditional medical approaches have been existing since the birth of civilizations and are not so easy to deny. In India, we have Ayurveda and Yoga, which have been existing since the civilization started and are still practiced widely. In the same way, Acupuncture for chronic diseases has been practiced by the Chinese civilization for ages. The traditional Chinese medical approach perceives that acupuncture works on the body through the energies present in our body. It is believed that acupuncture helps release ‘qi’ which helps keeping a balance of the two energies, yang and yang which are exact opposite to each other.
Scientists have advised that some of the diseases can be cured through acupuncture, but no written record of it has surfaced yet. The growing demand of acupuncture for chronic diseases proves that its existence is not entirely outdated, and that it has the ability to cure certain diseases therapeutically.
The most argued notion is perhaps the treatment with acupuncture for cancer, since the modern medical science has not been able to find a solution yet, this approach is strongly contended. But, it has been proved practically that acupuncture for cancer actually works on the symptoms that come with cancer and its treatment through modern medicine. It has been reported that it helps in reducing the pain due to cancer, the nausea and vomiting that happens due to chemotherapy can also be treated through acupuncture for cancer.
But, more importantly what people consider most successful Endeavour of acupuncture is its treatment for chronic diseases. A chronic disease becomes a problem because our body accepts defeat after a point of time when a disease persists; it becomes chronic then, living in the body without any contention. Diseases or disorders like body ache, headache, nausea, back pain, neck pain, cold and cough, inflammation can all be chronic, and acupuncture for chronic diseases is seen to be helpful in dismantling their roots in our body. Acupuncture essentially uses no drugs or surgery to treat any disorder; it just uses a therapeutic approach which makes it a popular choice among people. Also, the procedure is really easy where small needles are placed on one’s body at particular points which are called acupoints. This procedure is said to be instant relief for some patients, and some of them get treated as quickly as a week
