Are you struggling to breathe in Calgary today? We have a very poor air quality with the wind bringing the smoke from the Alberta forest fires into town.
Did you know that Acupuncture and TCM have been used for 1000’s of years to improve lung health? According to a 2012 Japanese study of COPD patients (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), Acupuncture has been shown to release chemical messengers that dilate the airways, making it easier to breathe!
With every breath you take, your lungs come into contact with the outside world. If the outside world is toxic such as when there is heavy smoke and particles from forest fires, your lung health suffers. The airways restrict and phlegm can accumulate to try to protect the airways further. This results in shortness of breath and lower energy levels.
If you are dealing with Asthma, Bronchitis, Allergies or COPD, you should know that Acupuncture can support the healing process and provide some relief. Targeting specific Acupuncture points, this therapy can help open the airways, reduce inflammation, alleviate coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. It can also strengthen your immune system making your more resistant to respiratory infections.
In addition to Acupuncture there are some herbs such as Astragalus, Ashwagandha, Cordyceps, and Schisandra, that can amplify the results!
