The traditional Chinese medicine has been used thousands of years. This medicine combines various body and mind practices and herbal medicines. They use tai chi and acupuncture. These are really effective medicines that cure your body.
The Chinese believe that the vital energy called gi flows inside the meridians – the paths which connect the major organs and body functions.
Yang and yin are complementary forces which interact in every aspect of your life. They affect your gi. The yin and the yang need to be in total harmony in order to ensure your optimal health.
The traditional techniques such as acupuncture and acupressure are excellent methods for treating pain. They don’t have the side effects that the painkillers have.
Another popular method of healing is reflexology. This is part of alternative medicine that helps you treat a lot of health problems. This technique uses pressure on some points of your body with the purpose to stimulate them.
This method of healing is also called zone therapy. This is a practice where they use controlled pressure on the so called ‘reflex zones’ which are found in ears, hands and feet. They use pressure in order to encourage the useful effect on the other parts of the body. This technique improves your health, eases symptoms of injuries, illnesses and stress.
If you do this very often, the technique will help you treat health issues in your body and heal them on a completely natural and safe way.
The points can be pressed with hands for about six seconds, then a three seconds break follows, and then another pressure for a couple of minutes. Doctor Oz says that reflexology is a really powerful method and it can do miracles for your body.
Doctor Oz invited the reflexologist Deborah Flanagan in the show and he wanted to show how pain can be alleviated in such a way.
Flanagan chose some volunteers from the guests to do the experiments and she successfully treated their diminished libido, sinus blockages, constipation, insomnia, fatigue and back pains.
