I think you don't always have to take medication…. that was a good start for me. I found acupuncture to be the most pleasant treatment ... you can really tell how the Qi flows through the body. I will definitely book a TCM treatment on my next stay.

Respiratory system discomfort

Chronic bronchitis is caused by viruses and favored by factors such as smoking, cold and wet weather and air pollution. Symptoms begin with burning and tightness in the chest, dry cough, dryness in the mouth and throat, and general weakness. In the acute stage there is an increased urge to cough, dyspnoea, fever and strong secretion with thick mucus. In chronic bronchitis, asthmoid breathing also occurs. Pneumonia or pleurisy can develop. Antibiotics only help here if bacteria are involved. Most respiratory diseases, however, are viral. Furthermore, every 5th German is now immune to conventional antibiotics (Kosm. Praxis 04/2006). TCM sees bronchitis as a disruption of the pulmonary function circuit, which regulates the qi, the energy, of the entire body. The phlegm blocks the lung qi, which permanently weakens the entire immune system. If external factors such as wind and cold increase, the Qi of the spleen and kidneys can also be reduced, which can lead to ear problems, incontinence, indigestion and prolapse (herniated disc).

With Ms. Cao F. from Beijing, the illness was brought to subsidence after a week by acupuncture along various points of the lung meridian such as "Lu 7". Since the lungs, as a yin organ, are directly connected to the yang organ, the large intestine, the acupuncture points "Di 4" and "Di 11" were also treated here.

Migraine

In most migraineurs, symptoms manifest as violent throbbing pain in the temples. In the case of acute attacks, nausea, dizziness, sometimes also deafness and speech disorders occur. The causes named are mental and physical stress, states of exhaustion (burn-out syndrome) and fluctuations in hormone levels (PMS in women). Researchers also suspect a genetic predisposition. Certain noises, bright lights, but also foods such as cheese and nuts can trigger a migraine attack. Vascular headache, which also includes migraines, is treated in TCM from a wide variety of perspectives, since it is not an independent disease, but is always the symptom of a disease or an organ function. The localization of the pain is particularly important in the diagnosis, as this already indicates the meridians to be treated.

A student from Trier suffered from migraines for 4 years. She showed all of the symptoms described above in severe form. The TCM practitioner determined a kidney weakness and Qi blood weakness and treated the corresponding meridians. The patient already felt better after 2 acupuncture treatments with herbal pillow treatments. After 10 acupuncture treatments with herbal pillow treatments, she was painless. The migraine has not come back to this day.

The holistic approach of TCM comes into its own when it comes to headaches. For example, migraine sufferers show tension in the abdominal muscles and menstrual pain. The patients concerned also tend to swallow anger and anger and not act. The TCM practitioner will also treat points of the liver and gallbladder meridian if necessary.

Arthrose

From the point of view of conventional medicine, osteoarthritis is wear and tear on the joint (cartilage and bones). Symptoms range from restricted mobility and walking pain to persistent pain, loss of strength and joint noises. From the perspective of TCM, external causes such as cold, wetness, wind, injuries, overuse and internal causes such as kidney qi weakness lead to this. All causes lead to a disturbed flow of energy.

A patient from Wittlich suffered from osteoarthritis on her left knee. The school doctor in charge wanted to replace the joint with an artificial knee. It was treated by our TCM alternative practitioner with acupuncture and moxibustion for energy supply along the points "Ni 3", "Le 6" and "Ma 36". After one session, the patient was painless.

Digestive tract complaints

Constipation with accompanying bloating, flatulence and slight nausea can cause accompanying symptoms such as back pain and headaches. The reasons for this are a lack of exercise, poor nutrition, but also mental problems. Proper nutrition with enough fresh fruit and vegetables (5 times a day) as well as fiber-rich foods and sufficient fluids can stimulate bowel movements. Liver Qi also plays an important role.

Mr. G. from Bernkastel-Kues suffered from severe pain in his heel. He was treated by conventional medicine for a heel spur. Our TCM practitioner diagnosed a weakness of the liver qi due to the decreased function of the large intestine. To this day, Mr. G. is symptom-free after 5 acupuncture sessions.

Menopausal symptoms (climacteric) and menstrual cramps

At first you are puzzled, because what do menopause and menstruation have in common, if menstruation stagnates especially after the menopause? In most cases, however, both forms of complaint result from a kidney qi weakness. The kidneys store the ying, which determines the individual phases of life such as birth, maturity, old age and death. The kidney function circuit regulates all body fluids, the structure of bones, teeth, hair and the ears. Disharmony can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, hot flashes, sterility, impotence, water retention (edema) and loss of appetite.

Ms. L. and her daughter from Bernkastel-Kues were both being treated in our TCM energy center. The mother because of severe symptoms during the menopause and the daughter because of back pain up to vomiting during menstruation and fatigue. Both kidney qi was found to be weak. Both were treated with acupuncture of the kidney meridian at points “Ni 6” and “Ni 3” as well as at “Gb 34” of the gallbladder meridian against pain.

After 5 acupuncture with herbal pillow treatment as well as with the daughter with moxibustion for energy supply were both symptom-free. Through targeted nutrition according to the specifications of TCM, such as warm meals in the morning and in the evening (e.g. cereal porridge and compote) remained both to date without further complaints. Incidentally, this was also a very interesting case, since it was here that the inheritance of weaknesses in a functional cycle was proven.
