Using Acupuncture to Cure Asthma
Thank you for all the positive comments and interest in my 60-day journey to cure asthma naturally, a condition I’ve “managed” to live with for over 30 years. I’ve also had quite a few raised eyebrows, so I now certainly feel obligated to do everything I can to prove it’s a disease that can be beaten.
Since I last wrote I’ve had 3 sessions of acupuncture and it’s fair to say I now see the point!
My first appointment and indication that this would be no ordinary treatment was confirmed in the first 10 seconds of the session with an instruction to “stick my tongue out”. I was informed that I was tired (a coating over my tongue) and was having digestive trouble (cracks in the tongue). Despite brushing my teeth faithfully twice a day, I have to say that the poor tongue never seems to get much attention, yet was quite clearly a gateway indicator for this practitioner to diagnose my ailments. Ting Ting Wu (my practitioner) is confident she can cure my Asthma in 10 sessions of combined massage and acupuncture.
“Did it hurt?” is the most common question I get asked. No…. Sorry it’s not more exciting but it was quite a painless exercise. Unlike the image you see on Google or other websites – where you see thousands of needles from head to toe, I just had 8. Strategically placed on my feet, legs and arms, I was instructed to relax, go to sleep even and lie down for 30 minutes.
For my second and third sessions I had 14 needles each time and placed in slightly different locations around the body. When I asked why they’d moved, Ting Ting stated,”because you don’t have the same illnesses now, so we’ve progressed the treatment.”
“Did it work?”. Despite going in to specifically treat the Asthma I’m sure Ting Ting is trying to resolve the tiredness (which is only mild) and digestion too rather than ignoring those ailments. I certainly have more energy although that could also be down to regularly exercising 3 times a week for the past few weeks, combined with our youngest daughter sleeping through the night! In terms of the Asthma, I’m still occasionally using the inhaler and have had a few instances of waking in the night a little short of breath, so no immediate impact, but happy to continue through the 10 sessions.
What next? After a fascinating discussion with our in-house Reiki Master who believes that an event could have triggered the initial Asthma attack I’ve decided to visit a Reiki practitioner this week to see if I can benefit from “regressing, re-living and removing” any blockages. I’ve never had Reiki before so am looking forward to trying something new. I’m also investigating salt as a possible solution. There are salt mines and specialists who believe that sitting in a salt mine/cave/room can improve breathing so I’m looking for our closest suitable location. I’ve also bought a “salt-pipe” so will read up and try that out.
Progress reporting on curing Asthma naturally.
I’d say that I feel 10% stronger so far with a combination of exercise, massage & acupuncture.
Until the next update, have a great week
