Anemia Treated by Dr. Frank Huo’s Natural Energy Medicine for Three Weeks
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for Anemia
Anemia is a disorder in which the body produces an insufficient number of red blood cells (RBCs) to provide other cells with the oxygen they need to function normally. A common symptom is tiredness, which occurs because the body is unable to function at normal levels. Because of this symptom, anemia is sometimes known as “tired blood.” Furthermore, there are many kinds of anemia, ranging from relatively mild to very severe. Those affected by anemia may suffer for only short periods of time or as long as one’s lifetime. The choice of treatment in allopathic medicine depends on the type of anemia the patient experiences. Similarly, practitioners of alternative medicine, such as those experienced in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), take advantage of herbal remedies, various types of bodywork, acupuncture, or other alternative and complementary forms of medicine to treat anemia.
How Is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Used to Treat Tihis Illness?
Allopathic physicians recognize many kinds of anemia, including aplastic, sickle-cell, vitamin-deficiency, iron-deficiency, hemolytic, and thalassemia.
While each type has a different cause, hence, each type requires a different treatment. Practitioners of TCM believe that all types are indications that the body is producing insufficient quantities of blood of good quality. Otherwise, the flow of qi, the essential vital spirit that keeps a body healthy, has become blocked or reduced. To resolve this problem, they use various techniques to stimulate the organs to produce more and a better quality of blood and to improve the flow of qi. Especially relevant in TCM is that the specific treatment used depends on the patient’s symptoms.
Acupuncture for Anemia
One method for treating anemia in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is acupuncture. Acupuncture is the process by which we insert long, thin needles at various points under the skin. As a result, we improve the flow of qi throughout the body. We insert needles at meridians that increase the flow of qi to the spleen, which produces blood, and the stomach. Also, needles are inserted at other meridians that improve the flow of qi to the liver, which stores blood and maintains a properly balanced flow of blood throughout the body.
