Acupuncture for Natural Body Detoxifying

Acupuncture is a method of external stimulation that manipulates the energy of the body, which forces the body and its internal organs to find balance and in doing so is a great way to naturally detoxify the body.

The 3 most common reasons for detoxifying the body come from addiction issues, which are Alcohol, Cigarettes and Drug abuse. All of which produce cravings, slow down metabolism and build up toxic waste in the body.

Acupuncture is not only great at detoxifying specific or multiple organs at once, but it stimulates the body's central nervous system releasing hormones, endogenous opioids and neurotransmitters. This helps create balance all over, not only alleviating cravings, reducing withdrawal symptoms, reducing emotional issues, but also helps alleviate pain.

Besides using needles to stimulate the body an acupuncturist can use Cupping Therapy on the back to stimulate all the organs at once. Cupping is a great way to release toxins and improve blood flow to all the major organs helping them cleanse themselves.

Depending on the issue there are many acupuncture points that can be used to help cleanse the body, but there is one point that can be used along with any detoxifying point prescription. The point lies on the kidney channel, which helps stimulate the kidneys to improve their ability to remove waste from the body. The point is called Zhubin in Chinese and translates to Guest House or more commonly known as Kidney 9.

This point is located about 5 thumb widths up from the ankle joint (by the achilles tendon) on the inside of the leg and lies on the lower end of the belly of the calf muscle. This point can be manipulated with acupressure 5- 10 minutes a few times a day to not only help with detoxifying the body, but can also help with:
  1. Very Strong Emotional Issues(outbursts)
  2. Issues in the Groin Region
  3. Increases Fertility
Getting acupuncture in general has been shown to be very effective for reducing cravings and cleaning out the body and rehabilitating the functions of all the internal organs. If you or anyone you know is seeking an alternative natural way to detoxify, I recommend finding a local acupuncturist and seeing what they can do for you.

  1. Acupuncture is also believed to be an effective way because of the apparent pain involved of needles that usually sends a tingle down people's spines. Needles are very useful instrument to attain the acupuncture spots which are near the skin and may be found inside muscles, joint spaces, and tendons. It is only needed to find a compliant acupuncturist that can make it less painful and make it a more satisfying experience.
