Modern World, Timeless Medicine

The first known medical record of acupuncture is found in The Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine, dating from 206 BCE. This makes acupuncture well over 2000 years old. Even though this medical system originally comes from a very different era and culture, it is just as applicable to our modern times here in America, if not even more.

The modern human lives in such an over stimulating and taxing environment. We are inundated with constant information in the form of news, television, social media, advertising. Our nervous systems are constantly in overdrive,  and it’s no wonder the average American reports “stress” as a top health concern. Yet, that’s not all, too make matters even worse, our bodies are processing more chemicals and toxins than ever before in the form of additives in foods, pesticides, and heavy metals.

Acupuncture can help the nervous system to tune-down and can help the body to detoxify by improving detox pathways. There is a breadth of research showing acupuncture’s ability to engage the “rest and digest” parasympathetic nervous system and modulate over active parts of the brain. There is no better time to use this ancient, time-honored medicine.
