Is Orlando Acupuncture Safe for Children?

Unlike conventional pharmaceutical drugs where some are too strong to be applied to children, acupuncture in Orlando is 100% safe for children.  The primary goal of acupuncture is to restore the normal flow of chi, the Chinese word for life force in the human body, which may be blocked or stagnating by any debilitating factors.

Usually, a person suffers from an ailment or a disease because the chi has stagnated or is blocked in some area of the body.  If the chi concentrate on a particular body organ, say the liver, the body would manifest diseases or ailments corresponding to chi deficiency in the liver area.  If the chi stagnates or has blockage in the kidney area, the body would experience maladies related to the kidney, and so on.

The usual ailments relating to the liver are depression, anger, moodiness, all menstrual problems like premenstrual syndrome ( PMS), pain, endometriosis, hypertension and all kinds of headaches including migraine.

Ailments associated with chi deficiency in the kidney are osteoporosis, weak legs and knees, edema, nocturia and degenerative diseases to name a few.

Acupuncture cures a particular disorder by the insertion of needles to meridians that connect to the particular area of chi stagnation or blockage.  The needles act as “traffic signs” to unblock and guide the chi into appropriate channels in the meridian system.  The meridian system functions just like the body’s circulatory system but instead of blood, the meridians distribute chi throughout the body.

The meridian system essentially is the same with adults and children.  Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years by ancient Chinese healers and has been proven safe even for babies.  Children are useful fearful of needles and this is often the reason why acupuncture is no as popular to children as it should be.

It is very important that the acupuncturist and the parent assure the child that needles used in acupuncture are not the same needles used by hospitals and clinics for vaccination.  Otherwise, the benefits of this ancient Chinese medical tradition will never be fully appreciated and availed of by the child.  This would be a great loss for both children and parent since acupuncture treatment is clearly safer than conventional western medicine can offer.

It is a sad fact that modern western medical practice has been giving medications to children that clearly are really very harmful to them.  Behavior modifying drugs like Ritalin have been known to be prescribed to children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as young as 6 years old.  Ritalin has such devastating side effects like, psychosis, paranoia, dizziness and even cases of death to children.  If that is not poisoning your children , then I don’t know what is.

ADHD can be treated with acupuncture sans those Ritalin-induced horrifying side effects.  Ear acupuncture is usually the modality used and the symptoms of ADHD usually disappear after one to four months of treatment.
