Nutrition therapy | Acupuncture forms

Nutrition therapy

A nutritional therapy accompanying acupuncture is adapted to the respective clinical picture. It is based on Chinese dietetics, which states that the choice of food, its tastes and methods of preparation influence the body’s functions. In this way, complaints can be reduced and recovery processes can be significantly promoted. The positive effect of such a change in diet is often noticeable after only a few weeks.

Chinese pharmaceuticals

For some diseases, the patient can receive individually tailored Chinese medicines in addition to acupuncture. These are usually based on boiled herbs, a so-called decoction. The patient can make the herbal decoction himself or, if desired, buy it ready to use in the pharmacy.

In any case, these healing substances are pharmacy-only medicines, which are usually imported from China and are subject to strict quality controls in most countries. If prescribed by an experienced doctor, they are safe and very effective and can often significantly improve or accelerate the success of acupuncture. According to Chinese medicine, herbal remedies strengthen the Qi and blood as well as Yin and Yang and eliminate disease-causing factors from the body.

Qi Gong and Tai Chi

Qi Gong and Tai Chi are meditative movement exercises that cause the Qi energy to flow harmoniously. The exercises therefore have a positive effect on body and soul and support the other therapy methods of Chinese medicine. Tuina is a Chinese manual therapy that can influence disturbances in the entire organism by means of specific hand movements, pulling, pushing and rubbing. Tuina is a valuable addition to acupuncture treatment and is used in cases of disorders of the locomotor system or in situations where the use of needles is not possible.
