Acupuncture in Bremerton WA

Two of the most common major health concerns in our society is Heart Disease and Stroke. Both diseases are caused by atherosclerosis, or narrowing and hardening of the arteries. Heart disease is leading cause of death in this country, roughly 600,000 people per year. It is responsible for ¼ of all deaths in the United States. While 800,000 people suffer a stroke each year in the United States. It is responsible for nearly 130,000 deaths per year. This is not as bleak as it sounds, there are many things we can do to prevent these problems and in the rest of this blog we’ll go over how you can help yourself stay healthy and how acupuncture in Bremerton, Chinese medicine and holistic care can help prevent these problems.

Atherosclerosis is a condition in which the arteries become hardened and narrow, preventing blood flow from flowing effectively. This commonly will block off healthy oxygenated blood to the heart and to the brain and the result is heart disease, heart attacks and strokes. There are many things that can be done to prevent the risk of these diseases and they include, getting regular exercise, enough sleep and rest, and eating more fruits and vegetables, especially green ones. It is very important to have healthy outlets to discharge stress, such as exercise or a creative pursuit like painting or playing music.

Did you know that getting regular acupuncture can greatly reduce your risk? A study in 2013 at the Peking University Shenzhen Hospital found that acupuncture increased blood flow to the heart of patients who had Heart Disease. The result was “a significant improvement in patients with heart disease.” For the heart, this greatly enhances the ability of the heart to function and pump blood throughout the body. Acupuncture at Bremerton Wellness in Bremerton decreases inflammation, which allows the blood to flow more smoothly as well, and can help to reduce plaque buildup.  Herbal medicine is also very effective as well and specific herbs are given to patients depending on their unique constitution, to effectively accomplish similar goals as acupuncture. Increase blood flow to the heart or brain, reduce inflammation, eliminate plaque buildup, as well as strengthen the overall function of the heart and brain so that they can help work more effectively and efficiently. Turmeric is one of these herbs which is effective at stimulating healthy blood circulation. Honey fried licorice is very good at improving the function of the heart, while cinnamon opens the blood vessels and helps to unblock clogged arteries. Herbs should never be taken on your own without the consult of a trained medical practitioner and herbalist, for if you take too much of something or the wrong herb, it can be very detrimental, so be careful and make sure you speak to a trained herbalist about the right herbs for you.

For patients who have already suffered a heart attack or a stroke in Bremerton, it is very important that they take a proactive step in their health. Acupuncture and herbal medicine is effective at being able to help the body recover following a heart attack or stroke, to make sure that the body is healthier than it was before the accident, to not only prevent it from happening again, but also enhancing the quality of life, so people are active, engaged and living life exactly the way they want, getting out and having friends with their family.
