10 Benefits of Regular Acupuncture Treatments

Acupuncture is a holistic form of medicine that has been used for healing purposes throughout many centuries. The ancient Chinese healing art uses very fine needles to improve the flow of qi, otherwise known as life force energy. Acupuncturists are in tune with the body’s energy channels. This enables them to not only address physical issues that a person may be experiencing, but also the emotional or spiritual concerns that one may have. Because acupuncture can be used for a wide variety of needs, many people find that acupuncture helps to resolve multiple concerns, including some they didn’t expect to improve from acupuncture.

Acupuncture is most commonly recognized for use in general or chronic pain management. While it certainly helps people with these needs, acupuncture can also help patients experience relief from many more physical and emotional issues. Portland naturopaths and licensed acupuncturists  are able to help those suffering from anxiety and depression by working with neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin to aid in improving mood. As many as 33% of those affected by depression seek treatment through acupuncture. Additionally, acupuncture helps decrease the symptoms of insomnia for patients. Many people also find that acupuncture can help improve the immune system, hormone balance, reduce allergies, and help with weight loss management.

Healthy Hydration

Healthy Hydration

NHC_glass_healthy

Drinking water is the healthiest way to hydrate.
Water is a macro-nutrient and is the only fluid we need to hydrate when following a healthy
lifestyle. Water contains zero sugar, calories, preservatives or additives; aids digestion and
metabolism; replenishes natural fluids depleted by other diuretic drinks; and is a key part of
the body’s cooling system.

Despite offering so many natural health advantages, the average Briton drinks just 200ml of
water a day – less than one glass of the 6-8 glasses of fluid the Food Standards Agency
(FSA) says we should be drinking daily.

As part of a healthy balanced lifestyle you may consume other drinks including milk, coffee,
tea, fruit juice, smoothies and fizzy drinks.

Drinking tea or coffee also delivers water, and contains caffeine, which can affect hydration
when consumed in above average quantities. Pregnant women are advised to consume no
more than 200mg or caffeine a day. This is equivalent to about two mugs of instant coffee or
about two and a half mugs of tea. Other hot drinks such as herbal teas, hot chocolates and
malted drinks can provide water, however if these drinks are sweetened with sugar it
increases the calorie content. The sugar also increases their potential to damage teeth if
good dental hygiene is not practiced.

Milk contains lots of essential nutrients such as protein, B vitamins and calcium, as well as
being a source of water. However, it can also contain saturated fat and so it’s a good idea for
adults and older children to choose semi-skimmed (less than 2% fat), 1% or skimmed milks.
For children between the ages of one and two years, the recommended milk is whole milk.
From two years onwards semi-skimmed milk can be introduced gradually. Skimmed and 1%
milks are not suitable for children until they are at least five years old because they have less
vitamin A and are lower in calories.

Fruit juices and smoothies may contain pureed fruit, which adds fibre and can also count
towards your 5-A-DAY. One 150ml glass of fruit juice counts as one portion, and smoothies
that contain at nleast 150ml of fruit juice and 80g crushed/pulped fruit count as two portions.
Because fruit juices and smoothies contain sugar (and therefore calories) and can be acidic,
they can potentially harm teeth.

Sugary Soft drinks contain sugar, which adds to your calorie intake and can potentially
damage teeth if the drinks are consumed frequently. It’s a good idea to limit consumption of
standard sugar containing soft drinks.
