Acupuncture is an ancient, time-tested form of holistic medicine has been with humanity since ancient times. It has been in a constant state of refinement through thousands of years as generations of practitioners discover and develop the science.
The benefit of holistic medicine over symptom-based medicine is that the goal of holistic medicine is to get to the root of the issue. When the body’s systems function correctly it naturally produces a state we call “health”. From this perspective we see symptoms as a message from the body of what is missing or out of balance.
A simple metaphor can explain the difference between these two approaches. Imagine that your body is a house on fire. In a symptomatic approach the fire department would arrive, remove the batteries from your smoke detectors, and go home. In a holistic approach the goal would be to put out the fire!
Acupuncture may not be the first form of holistic medicine we think of, but it is one of the oldest systems of general healthcare in continuous use. Rather than masking symptoms like pain it is able to stimulate the regenerative processes of the body. It provides a direct access to the body’s innate ability to heal itself. When the body is turning nutrition into energy and building blocks, when the immune system is functioning properly, when the blood and lymph properly flow there will be health. Science calls this state of delicate balance “homeostasis”. Acupuncture helps the body re-establish homeostasis.
