Excess Fluid In the Body
- Posted on: Nov 7 2018
The treatment of excess fluid in the body through acupuncture is a curious thing. Many times I’ve met patients with sudden onset of overactive tear ducts, and swollen joints for example. Many times the cause of the sudden onset of these excesses are due to emotional trauma, such as loss of a loved one, a sudden loss of a employment, divorce, and relocation. Thorough intakes and examination are vital to unraveling the root cause of the disturbance. Once the root has been unearthed point selections and treatment plans can be accurately strategized. Often points along the Heart, Liver, and Lung meridians are amongst the most useful points.
The causes of excess fluid are not the only resolution to excess fluid treatment. Another important factor is that of exercise and movement. An important diversion to emotional distress is releasing these feelings and thoughts with regular exercise. Preferably, exercise that can be done in the fresh air. The major system in the body that facilitates circulation is the lymphatic. Exercise and movement activate the lymphatic system and allow it to clean the body and revitalize cellular change.
