How does acupuncture work for Brain Fog?
Acupuncture is the best natural therapy to increase energy and blood flow to our brain. Some studies measured how treatment produces chemical changes in the limbic system of the brain. This part of the brain affects emotions, behaviors, long term memory, and etc. Acupuncture has a powerful effect on clearing out harmful substances from the brain. This allows ATP convert our body‘s fuel and oxygen supply into energy that the brain can use more efficient. (ATP is the acronym for adenosine triphosphate. This compound is a nucleotide that can store large amounts of energy in its last bond. Cells "run" by using ATP as a fuel source).
In Chinese medicine, it is important to find the underlying cause of the brain fog and determine how the pure energy is being obstructed from rising to the brain. For example: excessive damp and mucous build-up in the digestive organs, prevents pure energy from rising to our head and denies the energetic nourishment needed for clear mental activity and a bright spirit. So acupuncture not only focus on removing the cause of the fogginess, but also strengthens and harmonizes the functioning of the digestive organs and of the heart blood circulation to increase production and flow of vital energy and restore clarity of the spirit.
Course of treatment
There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
