My patients that receive frequent acupuncture treatments (2-4 times a month), usually have the highest energy and are usually the most balanced.
Creating energy requires your digestion (Stomach, Small Intestine, Large Intestine) and hormonal system (Thyroid, Adrenals, Reproductive Glands) to work hand in hand.
The acupuncture meridians for the digestive organs run alongside and around the actual thyroid gland.
When I work on patients thyroid function, I am always treating the acupoints around the throat. These points always correlate with the stomach, gall bladder, small intestine, and large intestine.
This tells me that what we eat and digest directly affects the function of our thyroid and adrenals, WHICH CREATE OUR ENERGY.
If a patient comes in more fatigued than normal, I recommend they look back and recall what they ate for yesterdays lunch or dinner. This is a simple rule that can tell you much info about what your thyroid and adrenals are sensitive to.
Frequent Acupuncture treatments or acupressure on these points help by moving your digestion along, which can reduce inflammation, improve the gut biome, and relieve constipation. Removing constipation is probably the most important step in creating energy. Your newly created energy will then keep the digestion moving on its own.
