Treating Peripheral Neuropathy With Acupuncture And Chinese Medicine
Acupressure Therapy Acupressure the Pancreas
So you have been told you are having someproblems with your pancreas or possibly you have diabetes and want to know how you cando a little self care. I my name is Mark Brinson. I am a physical medicine specialistand a human performance specialist as well. When we speak about the pancreas in Easternmedicine what we are really talking about is what they call the spleen and stomach whichreally controls all of the digestive functions so when they say spleen really the pancreasis almost synonymous with that. If you do think that you have an advanced form of diabetesacupressure might not be actually the thing for you because you could cause some damageif you have some type of peripheral numbness
or neuropathy. If you think that you justneed help with it or you have maybe Type 2 diabetes that are some techniques that canhelp you. Acupressure is exactly the same thing as acupuncture and when applied to pointscan really stimulate the system. Typically speaking some of the best points for increasingpancreatic function or that function of the spleen and stomach as I mentioned before arepoints like stomach 36. Stomach 36 is located at the bump just below the patella just tothe outside of the leg. There is a small little divot right in the muscle. This is probablythe most powerful point that you can use not only to boost the immune system but also toeither increase or decrease digestive function
it has a regulator mechanism to it. As a matterof fact stomach 36 is one of the points that have been used the most in research becausethey can’t quite figure out how it works. As always with anything with your pancreas,regular food every three hours, getting a good proportion of proteins, carbohydratesand limiting simple sugars is going to help you. My name is Mark Brinson and I wish youluck in balancing your life.
