    Acupuncture for Longevity

    People everywhere desire to live long, productive, happy and healthy lives. The Chinese, in particular, have made the search for health and longevity a conscious and integral part of their culture. All of the major religions in China include teachings of practices for the attainment of long life.

    While antiaging and longevity therapies have only recently become a focus of conventional medicine, Chinese medicine has focused on cultivating longevity for millenia, and the lives of Chinese physicians give us evidence that Chinese acupuncture, herbal medicine, and dietary practices can very effectively foster a healthy life span.

    According to the book "Outstanding Chinese Physicians in the Past and their Medical Theories" published by Peking College of Chinese Medicine in 1964, the 37 most outstanding Chinese physicians between 581 CE and 1964 CE had an average lifespan of 80.56 years.

    In comparison, the outstanding European and American physicians of the 19th century had an average lifespan of 70.93 years.

    Some famous Chinese doctors lived even longer lives. Sun Su Mao (Ssu-Mo) lived 101 years (581-682). He once said "Anyone over 40 years old should try to avoid laxatives, which will weaken his body, and begin to take tonics. Anyone over 50 years old should take tonics all year round; such are the secrets of nourishing life to enjoy longevity."

    Meng Shen lived 92 years (621-713). He once said "A person who really knows how to nourish the body should always keep good foods and herbs handy."

    Another famous Chinese physician, Luo Ming Shan (1869-1982) lived 113 years.

    So, in addition to pain relief, Chinese medicine offers you time tested methods for improving your health, immunity, energy, and strength, and extending your healthy life span

    In our practice, we use the subtle diagnostic systems of Oriental medicine such as tongue, pulse and palpation, even modern tests to determine where your system is out of balance, where there is a blockage of energy and blood flow. Disease is a symptom of imbalance and also perpetuates and accentuates it. Therefore, it is important to treat disease early, not just the symptoms but the underlying cause of the disease. Functional problems that you may consider "normal" -- are not "healthy". The fatigue, headache, digestive irregularity or other aches, pains and problems are clues telling you that things are not in balance in your system. They may be signs that you are heading toward something more serious. Do not wait for a wake-up call to start taking steps to reach a better level of health or protect your good health. Acupuncture in my office is effective, affordable, safe and comfortable health care.

    In addition to acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbal formulas to restore the balance and free the flow of energy, we include diet and lifestyle counseling to help you get healthier faster and maintain it. There are a number of ways to promote and protect your health. Some of these are a regular lifestyle, proper diet, exercise, rest and relaxation. Understanding the busy lifestyle in our city and culture, we offer practical, individualized step-by-step suggestions to help you improve your health and quality of your life.

    Acupuncture and Oriental medicine is a comfortable and effective path for your goals of preventive health and longevity.

    Consequently, at Soothe Acupuncture we offer 3 levels of health care.

    The lowest level consists of pain and symptom relief. You can get this result in anything from 1 to 20 treatments, depending on the condition.

    In the middle level of medicine we work on establishing a physiological balance that will prevent the recurrent pain and symptoms from returning. This can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months of treatment with acupuncture, herbs, and/or nutrition.

    The highest level of medicine aims at fortifying your immunity, increasing your vitality, generating extraordinary health, preventing future disease, and promoting longevity. It involves evolving a natural health care lifestyle for you, including nutrition, herbs, acupuncture, and exercise, with goals of improving body composition and maximizing immune function and vitality. This plan will require 6 to 12 months of treatment and consultations, plus ongoing maintenance.

    People often wonder why natural health care involves maintenance treatments, yet they know that regular maintenance on their vehicles will extend the life of them. Maintenance is essential for prevention of problems and extension of life.

    Why do you need to eat every day? To maintain health. Why do you shower regularly? To maintain health. Why do you need to exercise regularly? To maintain health. Stop maintaining and you will decline.

    With conventional disease care, which centers on poison drugs and surgery, you can only use these things to treat disease; over the long term, they actually undermine your health.

    In contrast, the more you invest in appropriate acupuncture, herbs, fitness training, stress reduction, meditation, breathing exercise (qi gong), and nutrition, the greater the return in terms of vitality and immunity.

    While acupuncture and natural medicine offer effective immediate relief of pain, infections, and other unpleasant symptoms that demand your immediate attention, the unique heart and strength of Chinese medicine lies in its antiaging ability to prevent disease, fortify immunity, increase vitality, generate a superlative state of health, and promote longevity.
