by Administrator 21. September 2015 18:09

Bronchitis is a respiratory condition that causes inflammation of the mucous membrane in the bronchial passages. This results in narrowing or closing of the airways in the lungs. The condition may result in coughing, phlegm, breathlessness, chest pain, fatigue, fever, shortness of breath and wheezing.

Bronchitis can be classified as:

  • Acute Bronchitis: It persists for one to three weeks and is most commonly seen in people suffering from Asthma. Acute Bronchitis can be caused due to lung infections, mostly viral.
  • Chronic Bronchitis: In this, the symptoms can continue up to 3 months for two consecutive years. Chronic Bronchitis is usually caused due to industrial pollution, smoking, sulfur dioxide and other pollutants in the atmosphere.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture, a Chinese medicine, is a form of healing that involves restoring the balance of the body. The procedure involves inserting tiny needles at certain acupuncture points in the body to improve health, treat illness and prevent disease. Acupuncture aims at stimulating these acupuncture points and balancing ‘Qi’, the body’s life force energy. The therapy signals the brain to release hormones or chemicals that reduce pain and improve healing.

Acupuncture For Bronchitis

Acupuncture can assist in treating Bronchitis by manipulating specific points in the body to open or relax the bronchial passages. It also enhances the immunity of the body to fight against any viral infection. An acupuncture session may range from 5 to 30 minutes, or as recommended by the acupuncturist. The procedure starts by inserting stainless steel needles at certain points to break the pain signals sent transmitted through the nerves. It increases the blood flow to the brain and releases energy blockages, thus, curing Bronchitis.

Acupuncture is not a painful treatment as the needles are thin, small, disposable and sterilized. The acupuncturist creates an individual plan of treatment depending on the age of the patient, nature of the condition, severity and the prevalent symptoms. Manipulation of the acupoints offer relief from any nerve blockages and help to reduce symptoms of pain, phlegm as well as breathing difficulties.
