Most common Covid-19 vaccine side effects and vaccination aftercare

For months, reports have trickled in about weird symptoms of COVID-19. There was COVID toes, unusual skin rashes, and loss of taste and smell, which later became an "official" symptom of the virus. Now there's a new one to keep on the back burner: COVID tongue, which is with bumps, along with inflammation and swelling. 

We also had a patient called in yesterday for acupuncture for the swollen tongue after vaccination. and Jarry (R.Ac)  had a patient who got Bell's Palsy after second dose  vaccine.

Seek immediate medical attention if you have serious symptoms. Always call before visiting your doctor or health facility. For mild symptoms, acupuncture can always help to relief headache, fatigue, muscle pain, Bell's palsy etc. More info about COVID-19 vaccination aftercare

Acupuncture Cupping Massage for a goodnight sleep

Sleep disorders plague millions of Canadians and can be attributed to a variety of causes. Perhaps the main cause of insomnia and restless sleep is the whirlwind pace that most modern people live with day in and day out. Our society emphasizes ‘doing’ much more than ‘being’. From the perspective of acupuncture, the yin aspect of life is quite depleted for the average modern Canadian. In case you have never heard of yin and yang, these are the polar forces that are reflected in everything in the natural world. Yin is related to stillness, tranquility, and contemplation. Yang is related to movement, accomplishment, and function. We need yin and yang to be in balance within ourselves in order to experience true health and wellbeing. When we are yin deficient, we easily become restless, irritable, and excessively busy. Our ability to rest and restore is compromised, as we never seem to get a break from the constant activity in our minds and our lives.

This is one of the main dilemmas that we face in terms of experiencing deep states of continuous sleep. We have forgotten how to turn our minds off due to the frantic speed of everything around us and we have become yin deficient. The common word is stress, but there is a lot more to this picture than is implied. Another way to look at this is that the sympathetic nervous system is on overdrive. We are stuck in fight or flight mode, as we are trying to keep up with our hectic schedules and myriad responsibilities. We have excessive amounts of cortisol and adrenaline in our systems, which keep us feeling amped up and unable to rest. With the pattern of yin deficiency and a hyperactive sympathetic nervous system, we often feel too warm, excessively thirsty, dried out, and anxious. This pattern is extremely common in menopausal women. Due to the fact that we are in fight or flight, we sometimes can’t tell if we are tired. We often feel wired or manic. Yet other times a deep-seated exhaustion is felt that penetrates into our bones.

There are many other factors that contribute to insomnia, but this is the primary issue that many people are facing. Other potential inputs are nutritional imbalances, suppressed emotions, relationship troubles, hormonal imbalances, and energetic imbalances.

Let’s take a look at a few of the top natural treatment options for insomnia:

Acupuncture: All of the major organs of the body are related to specific kinds of insomnia. For instance, there is a liver/gall bladder insomnia in which one is kept awake strategizing, planning and scheduling their lives at night. This person often can’t turn their minds off unless they read or watch TV before bed. Likewise, there are kidney, heart, lung and spleen forms of insomnia that all have specific manifestations. Acupuncture is an excellent treatment option for insomnia, regardless of its etiology. For chronic insomnia, I generally recommend receiving acupuncture once a week for 4-6 weeks, then we can assess for progress. Acupuncture helps to restore balance to the central nervous system and harmonize Qi, the functional energy that underlies our general state of health. Qi can either become stagnant, meaning that too much energy is locked up in a certain area or organ, or it can become deficient, meaning that there is not enough energy in an area or organ. Either pattern can cause insomnia and both are treatable with acupuncture.

IVF Acupuncture FAQs

 IVF Acupuncture research can be confusing, with the majority of research previously focused on treatment applied only at the time of embryo transfer. That and varying information on forums and in conversations abounds.

More recent research now suggests most benefit is achieved with a higher “dose” of acupuncture prior to and during the IVF cycle.


So, what does this research suggest in terms of best practice IVF Acupuncture to optimise psychological and physiological benefits and when should I start?


1. Commencement

The evidence denotes that:

  • if you are going to use acupuncture it may be advisable for to have it before and during the stimulation phase of the IVF cycle.
  • it is useful for women to consider acupuncture treatment in the menstrual cycles before their IVF cycle, or before a frozen embryo transfer to improve the uterine lining.


2. How many sessions

The most recent Meta-analysis showed there is a relationship between the acupuncture treatment dose and pregnancy rate with higher dose acupuncture before embryo transfer showing a significant benefit and increased pregnancy rate.


In studies where more than three treatments were performed, the clinical pregnancy rate significantly improved (N=8 / n=1595, RR 1.50, 95% CI 1.18–1.90, P=0.001) (Smith 2019).


One 2015 study by Hullender showed that acupuncture administered to IVF patients at a dose of 9-12 treatments prior to embryo transfer is associated with more live births.


Further, Hullender analysed the outcomes of more than a thousand IVF cycles and found that women who used Chinese Medicine (acupuncture with or without herbs), had a higher live birth rate than those doing IVF alone.


How much higher?

The proportion of live births was 61.3% in the Chinese Medicine group and 48.2% in the usual IVF care group and 50.8% in the group having acupuncture only on day of Embryo transfer.


3. When should I book in?

  • Ideally, 1 month before your start your IVF cycle.

  • I advocate bi-weekly treatment for 4 weeks prior to IVF cycle and 2 weeks during stimulation cycle.

  • Electro-Acupuncture may be used during IVF stimulation and/or prior to Frozen embryo transfer.






4. Day of transfer acupuncture

Acupuncture on the day of embryo transfer has significant benefit for women who have increased stress levels or who have had multiple previous IVF cycles, or where there was a low baseline pregnancy rate expectation (Smith 2018).


Continuing this approach in the two-week wait for test results is also helpful for these women to manage IVF related stress and anxiety.

  • Embryo Transfer acupuncture (ETA) is best done on the same day (or within 24 hours if on same day is not possible).

______________________________________________________


These recommendations have put together drawing on the most recent research findings (including a 2019 Meta-analysis, 2018 randomized controlled trials and 2016 Retrospective Cohort study).


These research-based recommendations aim to clarify:

  1. When to start acupuncture and how many Acupuncture treatments may be of benefit.

  2. Considerations surrounding Embryo Transfer Acupuncture (ETA) and acupuncture in the wait between embryo transfer and pregnancy blood test.

Two powerful Points to Boost Our Immune System

Looking for a natural way to boost your immune system? If you’re feeling stressed out, super busy, or you’re not getting enough sleep, this can make you more likely to get sick. Fortunately, your body has its own built-in system to keep you in balance.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are 12 primary energy pathways or channels running through your body. These channels influence your energy levels, mental clarity, digestion, overall health, emotions, and more. There are ways to “reboot” and strengthen the system to keep your body healthy and strong.


Two Powerful Immune-Boosting Points

Your body has two pressure points that help strengthen your body whenever you’re feeling run down and need a quick boost for your immune system. Practice these points daily—they take just 5 to 10 minutes to massage—and they’ll give your body a surge of qi (life force energy) to help keep colds and flus away during stressful times.

1. Chinese Reflexology Point for the Lung


The Lung reflexology point is an outstanding standalone point for boosting your Lung qi, which then helps to disperse the wei qi throughout your body to fortify your body’s protective barrier against germs.

2. Chinese Acupuncture Point: Stomach 36 – Zu San Li

                                             

This acupressure point is a classic that is commonly used by acupuncturists for treating patients for a wide range of conditions. This point is especially powerful for improving digestion and for boosting the immune system. It’s also used to treat a long list of conditions, including: stomach pain, hiccups, bloating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, and mastitis.

The foot is believed to have specific reflex points,which under stimulation can help the body heal itself.Reflexology and foot massage are now commonly used in alternative medicine, as it is considered very safe and likely to benefit you.
