ACUPUNCTURE FOR long COVID-19 symptoms Acupuncture is an important part of Chinese medicine that has been widely used in the treatment of inflammatory diseases. During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) epidemic, acupuncture has been used as a complementary treatment for COVID-19 in China.
The paper published in “Briefings of Bioinformatics” systematically revealed the multi-target mechanisms of acupuncture therapy for COVID-19.
The findings suggested that acupuncture treatment of COVID-19 was associated with suppression of inflammatory stress, improving immunity and regulating nervous system function.
Acupuncture intervention has been demonstrated to positively relieve inflammatory responses by suppressing inflammatory cytokines (such as IL-6, IL-1β.TNF-α, etc.), activating cholinergic anti-inflammatory pathway and regulating immunity. Acupuncture may relieve chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)-triggered inflammatory response and subsequently protect lung function by attenuating cell inflammation and the production of TNF-α and IL-8
Functionally, acupuncture therapy may ease the negative emotions in patients, relieve symptoms such as cough, breathlessness, abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting and fatigue, playing a role in the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of COVID-19.
Moreover, the study uncovered that acupuncture may provide additional benefits, especially for patients with cancer, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
Many of my clients say that they’ve never fully recovered after Covid infection until they tried Acupuncture. And, after only few treatments they all reported that the symptoms like fatigue, fogginess, lingering cough, digestion problems, anxiety, depression started to improve.
Acupuncture can effectively help to heal anyone and any health conditions because it is rooted in unchanging natural law, which has it’s source beyond time.
