ADM(2): Accupressure

Blog - Prevention and Treatment

Applying gentle pressure on precise acupoints called acupressure is believed to stimulate the central nervous system (i.e. brain & spinal cord) to release chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and the brain. These chemicals release other chemicals, such as hormones, that influence the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional wellbeing. And thus naturally the blood’s sugar/glucose level normalizes without any negative side effect, but may be with positive side effects (additional benefits).

Before applying any alternative medicines therapy, you should be aware that many of these therapies have not been evaluated in scientific studies.

Diabetes as per TCM (Traditional Chinese medicine)

As per TCM, diabetes causes is due to internal organ malfunction or mental reasons. They diagnose 3 types of diabetes syndrome and the treatment for diabetes according to these types. TCM also utilize acupressure treatment for diabetes.

Diabetes is known in TCM (traditional chinese medicine) as depletion-thirst disease, characterized by polydipsia (drinks abnormally large amounts of fluids), polyphagia (eating too much), polyuria (passage of large volumes of urine) and emaciation (occurs when a organism loses substantial amounts of much needed fat & often muscle tissue, making that organism look extremely thin).

Causes of diabetes as per Chinese medicine

  • The spleen and stomach are damaged by overeating greasy food or by over-consuming alcohol, causing failure of the spleen in transporting and transforming which, in turn, causes interior-heat to accumulate and consume food and body fluids, finally resulting in diabetes.
  • Anxiety, anger and mental depression can injure the liver by causing the liver qi to stagnate. Protractedly stagnated liver qi turns into evil heat which consumes body fluids and eventually leads to diabetes.
  • Deficiency in the kidneys caused by intemperance in sexual life or congenital essence defect causes the kidney qi to wane; as a result, the kidney qi fails to maintain the functioning of the bladder in restraining urine discharge, thus polyuria occurs.

Diagnosis of diabetes in TCM

Traditional Chinese medicine identifies three types of diabetes: the upper depletion-thirst, the middle depletion-thirst, and the lower depletion-thirst.

2. Middle-warmer depletion-thirst disease

Primary manifestations: Polyphagia, emaciation, constipation, reddened tongue with dry, yellow coating, and slippery and strong pulse.

3. Lower-warmer depletion-thirst disease

a) Yin deficiency: A morbid state due to a defect in the kidney essence and consumption of the kidney yin.

Primary manifestations: Polyguria, turbid urine, dry mouth, reddened tongue with little coating, and weak and rapid pulse.

b) Deficiency of both yin and yang: A morbid state due to deficiency of the kidney yin and yang.

STOCK FUNDS are the riskiest type of fund, and there
are many varieties. In closing, you need to understand futures contracts
prior to beginning. On the surface that makes sense
because the cut may be easier to absorb there than something more directly related to the organization's mission or goals.
