An alternative medicine originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles that have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of Qi through channels known as meridians.
Acupuncture has been shown to be effective for many conditions, in which about 50 of those conditions are recognized by the World Health Organization. Some of the common conditions for which acupuncture is used are pain, headaches, nausea, fatigue, fertility & pregnancy, arthritis, joint issues, weight loss, smoking cessation, digestive issues, & more.
Acupuncture is recognized as safe when performed by a well-trained health practitioner using sterile needling techniques, and carries very little risk of serious adverse side effects.
Insertion of the needle into the skin at certain acupuncture points are considered relatively minor for pain. Some people state the feeling may be similar to a little sting or sensation, and that many of the needles may not be felt at all.
Functional medicine involves a complete integrative approach that focuses on the body as a whole system and treating chronic disease, not just treating symptoms. This approach involves listening to a patient’s history such as lifestyle habits, stressors, food sensitivities, analyzing genetic and environmental information, and combining up to date lab tests if needed to better determine nutritional needs of a patient.
Functional medicine focuses on treating individual patients with individual results, not results based from a population of peoples. Functional medicine as well is concern with prevention and lifestyle conditions or diseases that may be prevented with proper nutrition, diet, exercise, and detoxification of the body.
A form of diagnosis using muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning. An examination using Applied Kinesiology for assessment includes procedures to represent a form of functional biomechanical and functional neurologic evaluation.
For a functional neurologic evaluation, muscle tests are used to monitor the physiologic response to a physical, chemical or mental stimulus. The observed response is correlated with clinical history and physical exam findings and, as indicated, with laboratory tests and any other appropriate standard diagnostic methods. A biomechanical evaluation includes posture and assessment of joint motion/range of motion.
