Breathing problems

Breathing problems: indication for acupuncture treatment

During a normal day you breath nearly 25.000 times. The lungs deliver the air that we breath to the bloodstream. From there it gets into the cells of the body and is helping the cells to work and grow.

The terms breathing problems, respiration problems or lung disorders refer to many disorders effecting the lungs such as:

  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Infections like influenza
  • Pneumonia & Tuberculosis
  • Lung cancer

From TCM point of view

TCM works to improve the resistance of the body against the attack of the lungs and to strength the immune system.

From an acupuncture point of view emotionally and physically the lungs and their partner organ, the large intestine, control with the energy that they create the pathway outside, to “let go”. The lungs collect and spread, and the large intestine takes out. Acupuncture can significantly help with lung problems such as:

  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Loss of smell
  • Wheezing, bronchitis
  • Cough
  • Strengthening the immune system

My treatment

The amount of treatments will depend on the specific problem that you encounter and if it is a chronic or acute problem. From my experience a successful treatment will be between 5 to 10 treatments.

During the treatment I will also give advice on nutrition and behavior because that can improve the functioning of the lungs and the large intestine.
