Citizenship Ceremony May 2018In May this year I had the wonderful honour of finally gaining British citizenship. With all the unrest and uncertainty caused by Brexit, I decided to gain some assurance of my rights to stay here in the UK and applied for citizenship.

What a journey it has been! Mountains of paperwork and documents! It was all worth it though, and I spent an exciting and emotional morning with friends at York Register Office for the citizenship ceremony where I received my official certificate from the Mayor and Sheriff of York.

Practising Acupuncture in Europe

As you may have guessed I am Italian by birth, and I am still able to hold an Italian passport alongside the UK one. I have lived in six countries all over the world but haven’t always been able to practise Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture there. The regulations surrounding Acupuncture practise vary widely across the world and within Europe. In Italy, acupuncture is seen as an invasive surgical act and can only be performed by Western Medical Doctors. A big problem here is that the doctors do not have to be TCM trained, they can do a short course in dry needling and then claim to practise acupuncture.

Many of the Scandinavian countries are much more accepting of TCM acupuncture and its role in health care. The Netherlands have no restrictions or regulations around acupuncture, neither does Norway. In Denmark practitioners have no restrictions but must meet a certain level of education to be able to practise.

Belgium passed a progressive piece of legislation back in 1999 to establish four commissions to set professional standards and organise research for homoeopathy, osteopathy, chiropractic, and acupuncture. The country is hugely accepting of complementary therapies, with 1 in 2 Belgians regularly visiting a therapist.

Acupuncture in the UK

Thankfully, Acupuncture is well recognised here in the UK and is regulated by the British Acupuncture Council. I’m grateful that I have been able to grow such a thriving practice here in York. I see the vital role TCM Acupuncture plays in people’s health, and enjoy working collaboratively with other healthcare practitioners, from doctors and nurses to nutritional therapists, herbalists, and masseurs.

Whatever challenges Brexit may throw at us, I can now safely say my acupuncture is here to stay!

WHO Acupuncture effective treatment People are often concerned about the evidence for alternative health treatments, like acupuncture.  If there isn’t a long list of randomised controlled trials showing how effective a treatment is, they doubt its validity.

I understand these concerns and could not practice acupuncture if I didn’t feel confident about the research and evidence base behind it!

The problem with RCTs

Randomised controlled trials (RCTs) are well suited to drug research, where you can give the medication to one group of participants, and a placebo pill or different drug to another.  The groups can be double blind too, where neither the participants or researchers know who is taking what.

However, RCTs are not well suited to assessing other forms of treatment.  With alternative healthcare, it can be almost impossible to disguise the treatment, and the therapeutic relationship between client and practitioner plays a significant role in how well a client accepts and responds to treatment.  It is hard to separate this factor from the actual treatment itself: even if someone is receiving ‘fake’ or ‘sham’ acupuncture, there is still an element of therapeutic care going on, potentially influencing the result.

The Holistic Approach

Another problem with using RCTs for treatments like acupuncture is the personalised nature of these approaches.  I see many people with headaches, or back ache for example, and they all receive different treatments – it is impossible to standardise them as each client is unique!  This makes it hard to perform randomised controlled trials.

The Evidence for Traditional Chinese Medicine Acupuncture

Despite these difficulties, there is a wealth of research and evidence for TCM Acupuncture, covering a wide range of health conditions.

The World Health Organisation says acupuncture is proven to work. They have compiled a report detailing all the health conditions that acupuncture has proven to help in controlled clinical trials.  The full report can be downloaded here. These conditions include;

As you can see virtually every system in the body can be helped by acupuncture!  The treatments are safe, effective, and in many cases, life changing.

Acupuncture works alongside conventional medications too; you don’t have to choose between treatments, if you must take prescription drugs you can still benefit from the power of acupuncture.  My treatments may even be able to ease some of the unpleasant side-effects of these drugs.

brains in shelvesIn China, the birthplace of acupuncture, stroke is the biggest indication for acupuncture use.  This may seem surprising, given acupuncture’s reputation for pain relief!

Every two seconds, someone in the world will suffer a stroke and the effects can be devastating.

Acupuncture Care for Stroke

In the UK there are over 1.2 million stroke survivors, each dealing with a range of symptoms caused by the bleed in their brain. To develop the specialist skills needed to offer acupuncture care for stroke I trained with Claudia Citkovitz, the Director of Acupuncture Services at the NYU Lutheran Medical Centre in Brooklyn, New York.  Her team have been treating both acute and chronic stroke symptoms since 2003.

Clinical studies have proven the effectiveness of acupuncture for helping stroke victims, and this approach is recognised by the World Health Organisation.

Acupuncture can support clients with their recovery from stroke symptoms that include;

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Pain
  • Aphasia: difficulties with speaking, reading, writing, and understanding language
  • Constipation
  • Incontinence (both faecal and urinary)
  • Depression, low mood, and anxiety
  • Low energy
  • Motor impairment: problems with movement and co-ordination of legs and arms

Acupuncture is suited to personal needs; the effects of stroke are as unique to the individual as their personality.  The recovery process can be long and frustrating, leading to feelings of isolation and anger.  Acupuncture can help relieve this emotional burden by improving the balance of mood chemicals in the brain such as serotonin, our ‘happy hormone’.

How does Acupuncture help with stroke recovery?

Acupuncture helps your body get the most out of its own healing resources.  To help with stroke rehabilitation, the needles stimulate blood circulation and nervous system messengers, helping to;

  • Reduce inflammation
  • Support the release of mood elevating and pain-killing endorphins like serotonin
  • Modulate the stress response
  • Activate regulatory centres in the brain

Acupuncture is safe to use alongside conventional medical treatments for stroke such as medication, physiotherapy, and occupational therapy.

Acupuncture to support stroke prevention

If you currently have conditions that increase the risk of stroke, or if stroke and cardiovascular disease runs in your family, acupuncture can help modify these risks.  If you have any of the following, talk to me about how acupuncture may be of benefit;

Prevention is better than cure, and it’s easier to take steps now to improve your health than after a serious event like stroke.

To help modify these risk factors I will also discuss diet and lifestyle measures and can direct you to other healthcare professionals for further support such as an herbalist or nutritionist.

I am one of the TOP 3 Acupuncturists in the UK and have specialist training in stroke rehabilitation and recovery. 

Your health is in safe hands.

Weight loss is not just a simple matter of eating less and moving more (though both are vitally important!).  For many overweight people, there are complex hormonal imbalances and strong addictions sabotaging their attempts to shed the pounds.

I enjoy working with weight loss clients in my Clinic, as with the right approach that includes acupuncture plus nutrition and exercise, we see amazing results!

 

Why won’t the weight shift?

From a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective, weight problems are influenced by;

● Blockages in Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) in the spleen, kidney, liver, and endocrine systems.  Qi is our vital energy that determines our health and well-being.
● Disturbances in the endocrine and nervous system that relate to stress, cravings, and addictions.

Weight loss with acupuncture

Because everyone has their own unique health needs, my weight loss treatments are always tailored to suit requirements. For example, one weight loss client may have an under functioning thyroid gland and need support with thyroid hormone balance and metabolic fire, whilst another may have strong sugar cravings that wreck their attempts to lose weight.

Ear Acupuncture for fat loss

Auricular acupuncture is a powerful technique to help support the nervous system in managing the effects of stress and addictions.  For many clients, cutting down their sugar intake is incredibly hard because of the highly addictive nature of refined sugar.  By helping to balance chemical messengers in the nervous system, acupuncture eases the cravings, helping break the addiction.

Weight loss with acupuncture & nutrition

As I previously mentioned, acupuncture alone is not a magic cure-all that will cause the weight to drop off!  Good nutrition is essential, as is regular daily exercise.  If the thought of exercise makes you shudder, think of it instead as movement.  Look at ways to incorporate more movement into your day: walk instead of taking the bus, run up and downstairs instead of using lifts, make sure you move around every 30mins instead of being sat at your desk for hours.

More movement means more muscle strength, a higher metabolism, and better lymph flow.  Lymph is a clear watery fluid that drains wastes away from cells.  Fat cells harbour a lot of toxins, and once you start breaking down fat cells you need good lymphatic flow to shift these toxins away.

Nutrition tips for weight loss

Try these tips alongside your acupuncture sessions to really kick-start weight loss;

  • Eat breakfast within 2 hours of waking.
  • Include a good balance of protein and complex carbohydrate at each meal: try to reduce carbohydrate portion size to no more than ¼ of your plate.
  • Only snack if you have more than 4 hours between meals.
  • Fill up on different coloured vegetables!  Veggies will ideally cover ½ your plate.
  • Kick the sugar habit!  Fat does not make you fat, sugar does.
  • Include plenty of healthy natural fats and oils such as coconut, olive, & flaxseed.

Approximately 1 in 7 couples in the UK struggle to become pregnant, which equates to around 3.5million people (source: NHS UK).  The cost of private fertility treatments is prohibitive to many, and for those that can afford it the success rates are low and the side effects common and unpleasant. Traditional Chinese Medicine has a long and successful history of supporting couples with fertility issues, and can be safely used alongside Western medical approaches.

Why can’t I become pregnant?

One of the most common reasons I encounter in my Clinic for couples failing to conceive is stress.  Stress causes infertility, and then the stress of not becoming pregnant compounds the situation! Here’s why;
  • In woman, stress hormones disrupt the delicate interplay between the reproductive hormones oestrogen and progesterone.  Alterations in the oestrogen / progesterone ratio can interfere with egg implantation in the womb, and successful conception.
  • Stress reduces blood flow to the reproductive organs, and down regulates the production of sex hormones.  Basically, when you’re under stress, your body does not want to carry a baby - it is more concerned with keeping you alive and coping with whatever is causing the stress!
  • In men, stress can affect sperm counts, and sperm motility.  This means fewer sperm, and those that are produced cannot swim as fast and reach the egg.

How can acupuncture support fertility and conception?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) techniques can effectively support fertility by reducing the effects of stress on the body, and improving blood flow and circulation to the reproductive organs.  This increases the flow of nutrients to these organs, supporting egg and sperm health. By dealing with the effects of stress and supporting the balance of endocrine hormones – these include both stress and sex hormones – the body can rebalance, and regain its natural hormonal rhythms.

Acupuncture and Endometriosis

I frequently work with women who are dealing with hormonal problems such as endometriosis, which compromise their fertility.  You can read more about my approach HERE.

Acupuncture and Fertility Treatments

TCM Acupuncture and moxibustion techniques can be safely enjoyed whilst undergoing conventional fertility treatments.  A 2012 research study at Tel Aviv University found that study participants receiving both IUI (intrauterine insemination) and TCM acupuncture & herbs had a 65.5% conception success rate, compared with only 39.4% in the control group who received no TCM treatments.  This result was even more remarkable given the average age of the participants: 39.4 years old in the TCM group, and 37.1 years in the control group. As well as improving the success rates of medical fertility treatments, Acupuncture can also reduce unpleasant side-effects such as nausea and sickness, and help couples deal with the stress of these procedures.   Are you struggling to conceive?
