Stay Strong -- Moxibustion
Moxibustion (moxa) is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years; in fact, the actual Chinese character for acupuncture, translated literally, means "acupuncture-moxibustion." The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of qi, and maintain general health.
Benefits of Moxibustion
If you are suffering from stress, anxiety and acute depression, then you can consider moxibustion for improved health and general wellness. Moxibustion is an effectively heat therapy used to stimulate acupuncture points in the body to trigger healing response. With acupuncture and moxibustion, conventional medicine like sleeping pills and anti-depressants will no longer have significant meaning.
1. Improves blood flow
In traditional Chinese medicine, moxibustion and acupuncture were used to quell pain, obstruction or lower energy, where stagnation or coldness was a primary causal factor. It has also proven useful with respect to blood stagnation or blood deficiency, as it is considered to help stimulate blood flow, as well as oxygen distribution.
2. Promotes healthy digestion
This form of therapy has also proven useful in treating disorders such as chronic fatigue and other digestive related complications such as diarrhea. Additionally, it can help in treating arthritic disorder and joint pain. On the other hand, it can benefit women with
ovarian cysts, menstrual cramps and infertility problems.
3. Boosts immune system
Besides facilitating healthy digestion, moxibustion also boost immune function and prevent the onset of disease. However, this should not be a substitute to medication. It is advisable to consult a doctor when you are sick to avert potential health complications.
4. Prolongs life
Moxibustion can prolong life, increase male potency, improve memory, slow down the process of aging, improve function of the kidney and boost longevity. Nonetheless, studies are ongoing to determine whether these theories are factual.
5. Mental clarity
Acupuncture and moxibustion also help treat nausea, migraine and chronic headaches. With improved circulation, you can enjoy enhanced concentration, better sleep, mental clarity, healthy appetite and general positive feelings.
While there are no side effects associated with moxibustion as a form of therapy, you should always seek the services of an expert to prevent body harm.
