ACUPUNCTURE AND CORONAVIRUS

Dear Patients:

I take your health very seriously. That is why Michigan Acupuncture Studio will be closed temporarily and we hope you will stay at home to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

I wanted to share this article with you about COVID-19 and Chinese Medicine

History and experience prove that Traditional Chinese Medicine is effective against epidemic diseases. From the Western Han Dynasty to the end of the Qing Dynasty, at least 321 large-scale plagues occurred in China. Chinese medicine has served to wage life-and-death battles against various plague consistently through time and has successfully contained the spread of epidemics in a limited area and time. There has never been a similar tragedy in China’s history, such as the Spanish flu or the Black Death in Europe. These are examples of global plagues that killed tens of millions of people.

In Chinese history, whenever a plague is rampant, Chinese medicine practitioners are always on the front lines to battle the disease. Many survived with the help of Chinese Medicine; so in this fight with the insidious and novel Coronavirus, Chinese Medicine once again should take a primary role in effective treatment and must not be absent in action!

Additionally, acupuncture treatment can be used for The Recovery Phase of the illness. The Purpose is restore Lung and Spleen functions and the body’s zheng (upright) qi.
