ACUPUNCTURE helps in flow of Positive energy in the Body

Liver maintains the flow of qi, or vital energy. If this flow is slowed, Liver qi stagnation occurs. With time, heat can develop, and this can manifest as Liver yang (male, hot, active, rising energy) rising, Liver fire blazing, or damp heat in the Liver and Gallbladder Detoxification channels. Liver qi stagnation is associated with depression, brewing anger, the sensation of a throat lump, sighing, hypochondriacal pain, breast tenderness, and menstrual irregularities (due to the Liver’s blood-regulating functions). Western medicine correlates are dysmenorrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, fibrocystic breast disease, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Liver yang rising can manifest as anger, red eyes, irritability, headaches, hypertension, and sudden onset of deafness, dizziness, and tinnitus. Associated diseases are Meniere disease, tension headaches, migraines, and anxiety. If the yin (female, cold, stagnant, sinking energy) no longer anchors the yang or if the yang has become so bottled up by Liver qi stagnation that it begins to rise up, Liver wind can manifest with or without concomitant Liver yang rising

Acupuncture vs Anti-Oxidants

We cannot think of liver detoxification as simply increasing antioxidants and anticipating that they will correct some imbalance with oxidants to preserve liver detoxification function. Detoxification is more complicated than that, and this is where acupuncture may have a vital role. Acupuncture has been shown to decrease reactive oxygen species7,8 and may work in a manner that is more complex than the simple addition of antioxidants to one’s diet. While vitamin C quenches free radicals in a nonselective manner, acupuncture might exert its role by decreasing reactive species enough to prevent pathologic conditions from excess, while keeping levels of reactive species high enough that the signaling pathways are preserved. What can cause the Liver to become stagnant? When the Liver is prevented from doing its job, the energy from the Liver (Liver Qi) becomes stagnant, which can cause problems that involve pain. Factors that can cause the Liver to become stagnant include:

  • Excessive mental exertion
  • Prolonged negative emotions (frustration, stress, anger, resentment etc.)
  • Emotional fluctuations
  • Women’s health issues (PMS, PMDD, hormonal problems)

How Acupuncture works for Liver

Inflammation of the liver ultimately leads to cirrhosis if allowed to progress to its end stage. Cirrhosis downregulates some, but not all, phase I enzymes and has a varied effect on phase II detoxification.5Therefore, acupuncture that reduces liver inflammation can help to preserve the detoxifying abilities of the liver. Electroacupuncture of ST36 could be recommended for this purpose because it quells inflammation by inhibiting β-hexosaminidase release and interleukin 6 (IL-6) secretion and by reducing nuclear factor–κB DNA-binding activity.19 Electroacupuncture of ST40 was found to decrease expression of genes associated with liver inflammation and hypercholesterolemia
