Something I am beginning to notice in my practice more and more is that there is a definite algorithm to results achieved and the time it takes to achieve them vs. the water intake of the patient.
The less water that is being consumed, the longer it takes to see results! And I don’t mean tea & coffee… So I aim to explore how hydration & acupuncture work together to optimise our health & create improved, positive treatment outcomes.
As we are all electrical beings who’s cellular activity relies heavily on micro-electrical charges from our nervous system, it is one of the primary roles of acupuncture to stimulate these electrical charges and create balance where things have become disrupted.
I use the analogy that if we were to put a live wire in to an empty pool, what do you think would happen? In comparison, consider the effect of putting this same live wire into a pool filled with water. The electrical surge would have an immediate and profound impact on each and every water molecule within the pool.
As our bodies are 80+% water, we are in essence that pool of water! The live wire in this analogy is likened to the needles that we use in acupuncture.
It is absolutely necessary that patients drink enough water to help in the treatment process. I am realising that almost every patient with CHRONIC PAIN or a CHRONIC ILLNESS also suffers from “Chronic Dehydration.”
These patients typically feel STUCK – physically & emotionally e.g. constipation, osteoarthritis, inability to make decisions, move forward or let go. Chronic dehydration can then often lead to serious “dis-ease” in the body, including allergies, asthma, eczema, fibromyalgia, depression, mood swings, headaches, IBS and other inflammatory disorders.
I am offering you the opportunity to take control of your health and start creating a downward trend in reducing any niggling, chronic symptoms through the simple method of hydration.
Not only will this enhance the results of your treatment with me, offering you greater return on your investment (you, being the biggest investment in time and money you can make)!
