Acupuncture can alleviate wrist pain, and researchers have tracked the nervous system and brain changes that may help explain why.
Scientists’ randomized 80 people with moderate or mild carpal tunnel syndrome — pain caused by nerve compression at the wrist — to one of three groups. The foremost received acupuncture at the ankle and wrist. The following got acupuncture at the wrist alone. And the third received charade acupuncture, using sham needles near the affected wrist, as a placebo. Using nerve conduction tests and functional M.R.I. before and after the procedures, they measured the effect on nerves and brain.
Types of Holistic Healing Treatments and Therapies:
The kinds of holistic therapies available are diverse and extensive. To name a few: Ayurveda medicine, aromatherapy, natural diet, Splankna therapy, Spiritual counseling, exercises, vibrational medicine, homeopathy, naturopathic medicine and acupuncture, bodywork, prayerful intention, energy-based therapies and Chinese medicine.
All these groups found reprieve from pain, but both of the true acupuncture groups showed quantifiable physiological improvements in pain centers in the nerves and brain, while sham acupuncture did not produce such alterations. Improvement in brain measures envisaged greater pain relief three months after the tests, a long-term consequence that placebo did not provide. The study is in Brain.
One elementary reason is the different perspectives on healing. A conventional medical doctor chiefly will treat physical symptoms and endeavor to target a physical breakdown as the origin of disease. Almost always, this is done through pharmaceutical medications. The Medical Intuitive has the ability to follow the disease or illness back to the primary source in the disruption of the energies. This disruption of the energy fields may be caused from external sources or from past generations. The role of meditation in the Ayurvedic healing is to procure the patient’s spiritual and mental faculties to assist in restoring balance to the bodily system. The patient can be relieved of the anxiety and stress that often accompany illness through meditation. It also can enhance the patient’s self-esteem and improve the quality of sleep. It refills and restores energy level.
When treating such persons, a qualified Splankna therapist might add relaxation methods, particularly to those who are prone to stress. He or she will instruct you, the patient, to sit or lay down, close your eyes, and, instead of concentrating on whatever vexes you, focus on your fingers or toes. Envisage, they might imply, a calming wave flowing through your distal limbs. They then enlarge that calming image centrally, drawing it ever closer towards the solar plexus. Ultimately you will calm down completely.
What is actually interesting here is that doctors are evaluating acupuncture using objective outcomes. Sham acupuncture was effective at relieving pain for the time being, but true acupuncture had objective physiological and permanent effects.
Thus, acupuncture is a low-risk, safe, low side-effect intervention and it is perfect for a first-line approach, and it is something patients should think about before trying more insidious procedures like surgery.
