Acupuncture is a branch of traditional medicine that involves the insertion and manipulation of fine needles into specific points (known as acupuncture points) of the body. It is to stimulate, or balance, the flow of the body’s energy which is believed to influence the natural functioning of the human body and its own healing process. It is therefore used not only as a therapeutic intervention but also as a means of prevention.

What can be treated?
What should you expect to feel?
A slight prick may be felt on initial insertion as the needle penetrates the skin, however it should not be painful. Once the needle is inserted to its correct depth and the needle is manipulated, people tend to feel a tingling sensation or a dull ache. In other cases you may not feel the needle at all. This all depends on the type of stimulation the acupuncturist is aiming to achieve. Generally speaking most people find acupuncture extremely relaxing.
How long will it take to see difference in your condition?
Like most treatments this depends on the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. Certain acute conditions may only require as little as one session to see improvement, whilst other chronic problems will need at least 3-4 sessions.
Precautions to be followed to cure your disease completely and to prevent from re-occurrence
Take your Breakfast & Dinner between 7.30 a.m. to 8.00 a.m. and go to bed by 9 to 9.30 P.M (9 is the best time)
Take curd, Green leaf and cereals only during day time and always the food need to be chewed in mouth till the taste goes off and then only swallowed.
When we take the food based on chewing technique we will get one nice belching. That is the bell to stop our food intake. If we are not able to notice it at first time, after two or three more spoons – again we will get the belching twice. This is the warning bell – we should not take food after this.
Broiler egg, broiler chicken, iodised salt and Maida items should not be touched. (Can take general egg & Chicken and stone salt without any added ingredients).
Fat removed food items are not good for health. Take only the Milk and Oils which has their natural fats and use only Neem based natural paste for brushing your teeth.
For sweet use Palm Jaggery, Palm sugar & Honey in the place of sugar and do not stop allopathic medicines immediately. Take Doctor’s advice and accordingly can be reduced / stopped.
