How does it work?
The ancient Chinese have long acknowledged the effects of the four seasons on health. In the theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is a saying: “winter illnesses treated in summer.” As the words imply, it means that winter illnesses are treated during the summer season. “Winter illnesses" refer to some of the diseases exacerbated by the cold winter, such as chronic bronchitis, asthma, and allergic rhinitis. The second part of the phrase, “treated in summer,” means treating the human meridian points with medicinal herb patches during the summer time when winter illnesses are easily dissipated or relieved. This method increases positive energy, enhancing the immune system in the patient. This treatment protocol is termed “Acupoint Herbal Treatment”.
When is the best time for treatment?
Timing is everything, and with summer time approaching, this is the perfect time for the Acupoint Herbal Treatment (AHT). The hottest summer days for this year are from July 14th to September 1st . During these days, body Yang energy reaches its peak; the skin pores will open maximally and allow the entire body meridian to flow in rhythm. This will enhance optimum herbal saturation and absorption.
In the AHT protocol, herbs are placed on selected points on the body until the skin turns red or in the rare case a painless blister is formed. AHT protocol can increase the functions of immune system and decrease the flare-ups for patients with asthma and allergic rhinitis in winter time. The indications of AHT protocol include: Allergic diseases such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, allergic rhinitis, chronic cough, and a weak immune system. Other conditions include stomachache, diarrhea, arthritis, and low back pain.
What are the cautions about the treatment?
Although AHT is a simple procedure, patients who are allergic to medications and suffering from infections are not candidates for this treatment. Pregnant women and infants also are not ideal patients for this protocol. In order to maximize healing potential, on the date of the treatment patients are to avoid cold or spicy foods, cold showers, cigarettes and alcohol. The entire treatment time is between 45 min -1 hour for children and 1-2 hours for adults.
How effective of the treatment?
The method is safe, easy and effective. Multiple scientific researches have concluded that AHT protocol has a good preventing and treating effect on bronchitis and asthma. The total effective rate is proven to be over 80%, provided that patients follow the program designed by their doctors.
