Facial Acupuncture: A Revolution for Your Beauty.

facial acupuncture=

More and more wrinkles appear everyday at the corner of our eyes. We are constantly looking for the next magic beauty treatment that can take us back to our youthful glow. Botox, fillers and beauty poisonous substances are so passé.

Facial acupuncture is the new weapon in the anti-aging war.

Praised for hundreds of years in Asia for its anti-age benefits, facial acupuncture brings about a revolution in our quest for beauty. Facial acupuncture can reduce wrinkles, lift sagging skin, eliminate fine lines and improve skin colour and texture. Many have found it to be effective even after one treatment.

It is no doubt that more and more celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston are switching from botox to facial acupuncture. It is a safer option: no foreign substances, no risk of disfigurement and no swelling. Acupuncture does not hurt. The needles are as fine as a strand of hair. A sensation of numbness or tingling is usually experienced.

Erica Chan, our new practitioner at Oriental Health, explains that needles are inserted at pressure points, energy and endorphins are released. This minor trauma improves blood flow and stimulates cell re-growth. Erica puts needles in at focal points where energy is coming from the organs. When energy flows more efficiently, circulation is improved, helping the body regain the youthful glow.

During winter cold and flu season your immune system needs extra support.

Feeding your body certain foods may help to keep your immune system running strong. Plan your meals to include the following powerful immune system boosters. You may increase everyone’s chances of fending off those winter bugs before they get sick.

Try these 5 immune-boosting power foods:


Burdock (牛蒡)

Furthermore Burdock has hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects: it lowers the blood pressure, strengthen the kidney and has a laxative effect. Burdock also inhibits cancer cell proliferation and removes heavy metals in the water.

White Radish (白蘿蔔)
Chinese medicine theory believes that white radish goes into the lung and stomach meridian. White radish is rich in vitamins and minerals and its interferon inducer activity is very strong. Interferons are important for the body’s immune response against pathogens as viruses and bacteria. Therefore white radish helps to enhance the body’s immune function.

White Raddish Leaves
White Radish Leaves (白蘿蔔葉)
White radish leaves are rich in vitamin A and vitamin C. Especially the vitamin C content is 4 times higher in the leaves than in the rhizome. White radish leaves prevent the aging of the skin and keep the skin white and tender. Furthermore it helps against digestion problems.
And most important during the cold season: it is good against cough!

Carrots (胡蘿蔔)
Carrots are regarded as top grade dishes. It is the “national dish” in the Netherlands. Carrots contain a high amount of Vitamins A, K and Biotin and help to enhance the body’s immune system. Furthermore carrots are good for the liver function and the eyes.

Cinnamon (肉桂)
Cinnamon is a popular spice in winter, providing a warm and spicy flavor for your meals and drinks. You can use cinnamon in your biscuits, pies, pastries, puddings, smoothies, soups (add a small amount in lentils and black bean soup). Cinnamon helps strengthen the immune system, improves brain function and is good for your heart health. It contains essential oils and therefore has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.

Traditional Chinese Medicine teaches to live in harmony with the seasons. Each season has its own characteristics which lead us to change our habits as the seasons change so that we may create more balance between our bodies and the environment. This means slowing down in the colder months and keeping warm and well rested in order to plant the seeds for renewed vitality in the new year.

6 Chinese Medicine Secrets for Your Winter Health
1. Dress up yourself warmly
Chinese Medicine doctrine dictates that cold that can lead to illness enters the body from the neck and shoulders. So, it is very important the keep your neck and shoulders warm. Most body heat escapes through the head. Consider wearing something to cover your head.

2. Drink warm liquids. Eat warm foods.
Your body uses energy that takes away from your body’s natural defences to warm cold food and drinks to body temperature. It is important to avoid too many raw foods during winter because they tend to cool the body and can deplete our digestive “fire” which is the ability to assimilate food efficiently.

3. Eat winter superfoods that warm you up.
First thing you should drink in the morning is a cup of warm lemon water with honey and a small piece of ginger. This will warm you up and strengthen your immune system. Other healthy winter foods recommended on a daily base are: cinnamon (0.5g), goji berries (10pieces), black sesame (10g). And to eat regularly white radish will help your Qi to move better through the digestive system.

4. Go to bed earlier
Since days are getting shorter, try to adapt your sleeping hours accordingly. Go to bed earlier (attempt to fall asleep around10.30pm) and get up when the sun rises. Winter is a perfect season to slow down and to grant your body more sleep. Getting plenty of sleep enables your body to conserve energy used for healing and warming the body when exposed to colder climates. To improve your quality of sleep is to take a warm footbath for 15 minutes just before you go to bed.

5. Do daily (light) exercises
While it is wintertime, do not neglect your daily exercises (30 to 50 minutes). Even though it is cooler and darker outside, try to motivate yourself to go out for a walk. This helps to enhance your body’s Qi and to improve your blood circulation.

6. Reduce stress.
As difficult as it may seem, find a simple way to relax and release stress on a regular basis. Meditation or taking a long hot bath are good suggestions. Choose your own method. Remember, it’s snuggling weather! Stress, frustration, and unresolved anger can easily deplete the immune system allowing winter illnesses to invade the body more easily.

1. 通過調節神經系統:可使胃的活動水平降低、餐後胃排空延遲(胃火型或肝火型的患者),並可以抑制胃酸分泌過多,糾正異常的食欲。另外,針灸所引起的神經遞質釋放發生變化,也可以影響食慾。
2. 針灸通過調節“下丘腦-垂體-腎上腺皮質”和“交感-腎上腺皮質”兩個系統,使內分泌混亂得以糾正。
3. 肥胖症患者的體中氧化脂高於正常值,通過針灸調節脂質的代謝過程,使人體氧化脂的含量下降,加速脂肪分解。
減肥過程中體重不會直線下降,需要經過以下三個時期。分治療期、穩定期調理期、鞏固期三個時期。在減肥的治療初期,體重在一段時間內持續下降,此為治療期。當體中在一段時間內下降速度減慢為穩定調整期,此時期為減肥的關鍵時期,應該繼續堅持治療,因為在穩定調整期雖然體重變化相對較緩慢,但身體脂肪比例仍在降低,穩定期的形成是體內自主生理調整過程。為機體需要一個代謝平衡達到與新體重相適應的 另一個新的代謝水平,所以為關鍵時期。經過一段時間的調整體重還會依據各體具續下降,再繼續下一個治療過程,直到個體理想體重的穩定。當減至理想體重時需要進入鞏固期治療,鞏固期治療大約需要兩個月,使體重逐漸穩定在新的代謝平衡點,鞏固治療結束後,須在醫師的指導下進行生活習慣的矯正,以維持健康生活品質。



小兒健康有幾項重要指標,排除先天性的遺傳疾病外,主要從飲食消化系統、感冒免疫系統和睡眠夜尿夜啼作為日常生活健康狀態的診斷要點。身為ㄧ位中醫,中醫兒科是老祖宗流傳下來的一門珍貴的經驗學問,在近代主流醫學西醫的教育下,很多父母有很多的疑問和對中醫的誤解。有些人會問小兒是否可以服用中藥呢?以及如何為孩子打造健康的基礎,預防勝於治療呢?從古至今,在西醫尚未進入到中國時,當孩子生病都是以中醫中藥做為治療,所以在此答覆各位敬愛的父母們,小兒是可以服用中藥的。 婦產科中新生兒使用甘草水來退胎毒、小兒食積消化不良以麥芽、山楂、神曲等幫助消食,強壯體魄以黃耆、白朮健脾和胃,並依據小兒的體質,判斷其合適的調理方案,中藥當中又以植物藥最為平和,適合小兒嬌嫩的體質。
