Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can help with your ear nose and throat problems!
Ear, Nose, Throat (ENT) disorders include everything from allergies to hearing, vertigo and thyroid diseases. Nearly 50% of patient visits to Western doctors pertain to this branch of medicine.
ACUPUNCTURE & TCM CAN HELP
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Otorhinolaryngology studies diseases of the ear, nose and throat under the guidance of TCM theories. According to TCM theory the sensory organs are connected to the internal organs. The ear is connected to the Kidney, the nose is associated with the Lung, while the throat is related to Stomach, Lung, and Spleen.
Because these sensory organs are susceptible to external factors like cold and wind, they can easily succumb to illness and infection. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs treat ENT disorders by assessing the internal organs, rather than just focusing on the symptoms and signs, therefore getting to the root of the issue.
ACUPUNCTURE IN A NUTSHELL
Acupuncture, the most well-known traditional Chinese medical procedure, is the practice of inserting thin needles into the body at specific points to relieve pain or treat a disease. Acupuncture triggers spontaneous healing reactions in the body, and scientific studies have proven its efficacy for treating inflammation, pain, depression and a host of other disorders.
