Acupuncture Supports Immunity

It’s been just over two months since I reopened the acupuncture clinic after the restrictions eased, and it has been fantastic to see my wonderful clients again!

So many people have been suffering during lockdown. Coronavirus may have hit but that didn’t mean every other health issue disappeared. People have struggled with chronic pain, depression, weight gain, high levels of stress and anxiety – all of which can be effectively managed with Acupuncture.

Clinic is safe and welcoming

Right from the beginning when I opened my clinic over 14 years ago I put strict cleaning and hygiene measures in place, so it was simple to meet the guidelines for reopening after lockdown. The British Acupuncture Council Code of Safe Practice sets the standards I must meet and maintain every day. These include:

  • Wearing a clean and well-maintained uniform
  • Frequent handwashing
  • Sanitising the couch and changing the paper couch roll in-between each appointment
  • Using high quality single use needles and a sharps bucket for needle disposal

Following these guidelines has meant that I have neither spread or contracted anything to or from any of my patients. I hope this reassures you about coming for an appointment – my clinic is as safe and welcoming as ever!

Building immune resilience

Late summer is the perfect time to start preparing for the latter part of the year. Autumn, with its energies of change and transition will soon be here and this is a great time to start building our immune resilience to colds and flu.

Prevention is better than cure when it comes to immunity. It is better to do what we can to reduce the likelihood of getting an infection, rather than wait and see what happens if we pick something up.

Research shows acupuncture has a profound influence on immunity. Needling specific points can:

  • Enhance natural killer cell activity.
  • Modulate the numbers and ratios of immune cells.
  • Stimulate nerves to release endorphins and other chemicals that reduce pain.
  • Increase local microcirculation to alleviate inflammation and swelling.

Digestion & Immunity

A major part of our immune system resides in the gut, in the form of bacteria and yeasts known as the gut microbiome. These microbes communicate constantly with all parts of the body – including immune cells. If you are struggling with any digestive complaints – Irritable Bowel Syndrome, bloating, excess gas, heartburn – your gut microbiome may be affected. It’s important to get help for these symptoms so that your nutrient absorption and immunity isn’t compromised. I see many clients with all manner of digestive conditions, for which Acupuncture is highly effective.

Sleep, relaxation & nutrition

Acupuncture is an holistic form of care and I always offer lifestyle support to my clients to complement their treatments. When it comes to building immune resilience, it is vital to look at:

  • Sleep: just one bad night’s sleep can lower your immune defences the next day. If you have any difficulties sleeping, get in touch with me right away!
  • Anti-inflammatory foods: oily fish, brightly coloured vegetables, dark chocolate, ginger, cinnamon, turmeric, green tea, and seasonal native fruits all provide powerful compounds that support immunity and help manage inflammation.
  • Foods to support the gut microbiome: these include fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kefir, yoghurt, and kimchi; and soluble fibre found in vegetables, lentils, oats, and beans.
  • Regular moderate exercise: daily movement has a significant positive effect on immunity – get outside if you can, to enjoy fresh air and natural daylight.
  • Social interactions: this has been hard for many people during lockdown, but it’s important to keep in touch with friends and family as we are wired to benefit from human interaction.

Paying attention to these areas brings benefits not just to our immunity, but our energy and overall well being too.

Acupuncture In The Fight Against Covid-19

The usual winter flu season is being made much worse this year with the dramatic spread of Coronavirus. Here in the UK, Government advice is focusing on regular handwashing, using alcohol hand sanitisers, avoiding physical contact, and self-isolating if you have been exposed to the virus.

These are all effective and useful measures, but what else can be done to reduce our chances of picking up the infection - and easing the symptoms if we do?

Acupuncture: bolstering our natural defences

Traditional Chinese Medicine has much to offer for immune support, with both acupuncture and herbs.

Research has shown that acupuncture can relieve the symptoms of colds and flu by:

  • Enhancing the actions of natural killer cells – our immune system’s SAS soldiers

  • Modulating the number and ratios of immune cell to optimise our defences

  • Stimulating nerves to release endorphins and other chemicals that reduce pain

  • Increasing local microcirculation to alleviate inflammation and swelling

As well as managing actual symptoms, acupuncture can also be used on a regular basis to keep your immune system strong and help prevent infection in the first place. After all, prevention is better and easier than cure!

Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbs are frequently used alongside needling, to enhance and deepen the therapeutic effects. These herbs have a long history of use for managing colds and influenza, and the prescriptions are always tailored to suit your specific needs. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach; in Traditional Chinese Medicine the treatment is always unique to the patient’s pattern of symptoms.

Foods and nutrients to fight Coronavirus

How you look after yourself in-between acupuncture sessions is just as important for immunity as the acupuncture itself. This is why I provide diet and lifestyle advice to my clients.

According to my colleague Registered Nutritionist Sally Duffin, some of the best foods and nutrients for immune health are:

  • Vitamin C found in citrus fruits, broccoli, watercress, peppers, cauliflower, kiwi, and berries. This nutrient has powerful anti-viral and antioxidant actions
  • Vitamin D here in the UK many people are deficient in this vitamin simply because we don’t get enough sunshine. It is advisable to take a supplement between October and April
  • Vitamin A vital for the tissues lining your respiratory tract. Pure vitamin A is found in animal products like butter, eggs, liver, and milk. Beta carotene from orange and yellow fruits and vegetables can be converted into vitamin A by the body
  • Zinc this is especially important for elderly people who are particularly prone to the severe effects of flu and Coronavirus. Many older people take PPI medications for acid reflux (e.g. Omeprazole, Lansoprazole, Nexium) and these medicines reduce the absorption of zinc from foods. Good dietary sources include nuts, pumpkin seeds, fish, red meat and poultry.
  • A good quality, homemade chicken soup packed with ginger and garlic! Both these spices are anti-inflammatory and immune strengthening, whilst the chicken provides zinc and vital proteins.

For more Corona-specific advice, there is research around particular nutrients that can help defend against RNA viruses. These include:

- Spirulina

- N-Acetylcysteine (NAC): a precursor to the powerful antioxidant glutathione. Other glutathione precursors include broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus

- Selenium: best food sources are Brazil nuts, coconut, shellfish

- Beta glucans

- Elderberry

(ref: M.F. McCarty and J.J. DiNicolantonio, Nutraceuticals have potential for boosting the type 1 interferon response to RNA viruses including including influenza and coronavirus Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases)

Acupuncture Awareness Week | York Traditional AcupunctureThe annual Acupuncture Awareness Week celebrations will soon be here: this year it runs from 6th – 12th March, and aims to increase people’s awareness of just how many conditions Acupuncture can support.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture is often only thought of for treating pain, but it is in fact a complete medical system that can help with almost any health condition you might have!

The spread of Acupuncture

TCM Acupuncture is a traditional healing method originating from China over 2500 years ago.  Unlike many traditional healing techniques which remain localised to a specific culture, the power and popularity of acupuncture has spread rapidly across the world, with acupuncture practitioners now working in hundreds of countries.  Here in the UK 2.3 million people enjoy acupuncture treatments every year!

Pain Relief

One of the most popular reasons for clients coming to my clinic is pain relief.  TCM Acupuncture has been show to effectively relieve pain of all kinds;

  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Sports injuries
  • Chronic back pain: I see many clients with back problems and am registered as a practitioner with BackCare the national back and neck pain charity.
  • Labour pain
  • Even surgical pain! In fact, no deaths have ever been reported from acupuncture analgesia, unlike prescription and over-the-counter pain relief medications.  In China acupuncture is often used in surgery to reduce the need for anaesthesia drugs – and may even replace the need for anaesthesia altogether in certain circumstances.

World Health Organisation Endorsement

In 2002 the WHO published a detailed report evaluating the evidence and research supporting TCM Acupuncture as an effective healthcare option for a vast range of conditions.

Acupuncture has so much to offer for health and wellbeing!  This is a taster of the many health conditions TCM Acupuncture can be used for;

  • Insomnia: ear acupuncture and acupressure has a hypnotic effect and can help improve sleep patterns
  • Allergies: acupuncture has been shown to be more effective than anti-histamine drugs for relieving allergic rhinitis
  • Bronchial asthma
  • Morning sickness
  • Nausea: both unexplained nausea and nausea related to chemotherapy treatment
  • Blood pressure regulation: both high and low blood pressure can be managed with acupuncture
  • Stress
  • Anxiety: Anxiety UK, the national charity for supporting anxiety sufferers recommends me as an approved practitioner
  • Depression
  • Digestive health: Irritable Bowel Syndrome, indigestion, bloating – find relief with acupuncture!
  • Skin conditions: itchy, painful inflamed skin conditions can be alleviated with TCM Acupuncture
  • Weight loss
  • Quitting smoking and other addictions: auricular acupuncture is particularly beneficial for quitting smoking. I am a Gold Award Therapist with the National Stop Smoking Centre!

As you can see, TCM Acupuncture works on the body rebalancing all its systems and restoring health and vitality.

Improve Digestion with AcupunctureAs part of my Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatments I regularly practise abdominal acupuncture to improve digestion with my clients.

Many ancient Chinese medical texts focus on abdominal acupuncture diagnosis, with the abdomen being described as the ‘root and foundation’ of a person.  So many vital organs are found in the abdominal region including the digestive tract, which we know now communicates constantly with your brain via its own nervous system called the enteric nervous system.

Gut-Brain connections and Digestion

Think of a time you felt nervous or anxious.  Did it affect your digestion?  Did you experience ‘butterflies’ in your tummy, or any aches and pains in your abdomen?  Our brain and digestive system are talking to each other all the time, which means our thoughts and emotions have an immediate impact on how we digest, assimilate, and utilise food.

I see many clients with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, a condition that is massively influenced by stress.  The way their brain is processing stress and the signals it is sending to their gut causes unpleasant and distressing symptoms such as constipation, diarrhoea, wind, and bloating.

The Vagus Nerve

One of the main highways of communication between your brain and gut is via the vagus nerve.  This is the largest nerve in the body, extending from the brain deep into the abdominal area, carrying nerve fibres that control both sensations and movement.  Over-stimulation or disruption of this nerve can cause many health problems, particularly in the digestive system.

The vagus nerve and all the other smaller nerves in the enteric nervous system produce neurotransmitters: chemicals that carry the messages from one nerve to another.

Serotonin is well known as being the neurotransmitter responsible for elevating mood and feelings of satisfaction and positivity.  But did you know that over 90% of serotonin is produced in the gut not the brain?  It is part of the gut-brain communication and influences gut function.

How does Abdominal Acupuncture work?

I can gather a lot of information about your health by looking at the skin of your abdomen: its colour, texture, and temperature reveal a great deal.  I may also gently palpate your abdomen, to check for any lumps or anomalies that may guide my diagnosis.

Acupuncture works by stimulating the flow of Qi (pronounced ‘chee’) around the body.  Blockages in Qi can lead to areas of stagnation, poor circulation, and accumulation of toxins which in turn manifests as ill-health and dis-ease.

Needling certain acupuncture points stimulates the release of neurotransmitters and endorphins which can ease pain, promote relaxation, and elevate mood.

There are 3 layers to your abdomen that can be stimulated accordingly;

  1. Superficial layer: found just beneath the skin, this area can influence pain and acute disorders
  2. Middle layer: this is the fat layer, just under the skin, which connects the external and internal environments
  3. Deep muscle layer: this is the deepest layer, and relates to chronic conditions and long standing ill-health issues.

No two treatments are the same and I will select the abdominal acupuncture points that are most relevant to your needs.

Fibromyalgia natural treatmentAre you suffering from the severe fatigue and muscle pains of Fibromyalgia?

This condition affects around 1 in 25 people in the UK and is something I see frequently in my Clinic. Fibromyalgia affects many more women than men – the reasons for this remain unknown – and can be associated with other life-limiting conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, headaches, depression and Restless Leg Syndrome.

The name Fibromyalgia literally translates as pain (algia) coming from muscles (my) and connective tissues (fibro). The exact cause of it varies from person to person but is often associated with stress, infections and changes in the balance of chemicals in the brain that regulate pain sensitivity.

Can medication help with fibromyalgia?

Unfortunately most medications prescribed for fibromyalgia do little to relieve the condition. Long term use of Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen and Naproxen can lead to digestive problems as the lining of the stomach gets damaged and inflamed: stronger painkillers are not recommended because of the risk of addiction.

Anti-depressants are sometimes used to relieve any depression and anxiety caused by the condition, and can also ease sleeping problems.

How can Acupuncture help?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture is proven to bring lasting relief to fibromyalgia patients. A recent study in Spain compared acupuncture with a placebo treatment. The group of 164 patients were assigned to either an acupuncture group or a placebo group (in this study, the placebo was sham-acupuncture) and all participants received their selected therapy for 10 weeks.

At the end of the trial, those receiving TCM acupuncture reported significant decreases in pain and improvements in fatigue, anxiety and depression, compared to the placebo group.

These improvements were shown to be sustained at a 12 month follow up too.

TCM Acupuncture brings relief from fibromyalgia by;

  • Stimulating nerves in muscles and tissues to release endorphins, the bodys own ‘feel good’ chemicals
  • Altering the balance of brain chemicals in favour of pain relief and mood elevation
  • Improving microcirculation in muscles and connective tissues
  • Reducing muscular inflammation

Will exercise and nutrition help too?

Gentle exercise can improve fibromyalgia symptoms – the trick is to exercise enough to feel the benefit but not to overwork the muscles! Yoga, swimming and outdoor walking are good forms of exercise to begin with.

Nutrition has much to offer for fibromyalgia. Dark green leafy vegetables, buckwheat and cashew nuts are all excellent sources of magnesium, a key mineral for muscle health and pain management. Oily fish, nuts and seeds provide healthy essential fats that can help reduce pain and inflammation.

Drinking plenty of water (at least 1.5l per day) is vital – dehydrated muscles will be painful muscles!

Epsom salt baths

Many fibromyalgia sufferers find warm baths soothing to their symptoms. Adding 1-2 cups of Epsom salts to a bath can make a huge difference: the salts are rich in magnesium which eases cramps and muscle pains and calms the nervous system.

person mediating on a pier at sunsetStress, anxiety and depression affect people of all ages and can strike at anytime in life.  In my Clinic I see the profound negative effects these conditions have on my clients’ lives, but also, the amazing benefits of natural treatments like Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Acupuncture can bring.

Because of this I am thrilled to be taking part in a national research project between Anxiety UK, the national charity for anxiety sufferers, and the British Acupuncture Council.

The aim of this project is to strengthen the evidence base for TCM Acupuncture as a way to manage anxiety disorders and to support the establishment of acupuncture as a treatment option for members of Anxiety UK.

According to Anxiety UK:

  • 20% of students suffer mental health problems whilst away at university
  • ¼ of Generalised Anxiety Disorder sufferers are aged over 50 yet only one third of them receive any treatment
  • 70 million sick days are lost to Stress, Anxiety and Depression each year in the UK, costing our economy between £70-100 billion

These are shocking statistics and this is just the tip of the iceberg!  The stigma of mental health issues stops many people from asking for help and support and they end up carrying the burden alone, becoming increasingly isolated and distressed.

How Can TCM Acupuncture Help Treat Anxiety?

Stress, anxiety and depression affect every organ and system in your body.  This makes TCM Acupuncture a perfect mode of treatment as it is holistic in nature, balancing every aspect of your wellbeing.

Research has shown TCM Acupuncture to be effective in managing stress, anxiety and depression through:

      • Regulating the balance of mood chemicals in the brain known as neurotransmitters
      • Reducing sensitivity to stress and pain
      • Promoting relaxation and down regulating the ‘analytical’ side of the brain – this part of the brain feeds negative internal chatter and anxious thoughts!
      • Reducing anti-inflammatory compounds which become elevated when stressed

My treatments are safe and effective and can be used alongside conventional medications such as tranquilisers and anti-depressants and may even help reduce any unwanted drug side effects.
