Scientific evidence has amassed, underscoring the effectiveness of acupuncture and herbal medicine in the reduction of hypertension. But how does this ancient practice of inserting tiny needles and utilizing botanical remedies translate into lower blood pressure? The answer lies in the intricate dynamics of the body's qi and fluid metabolism, as explained by Chinese medicine theory.

The Qi and Fluids Connection:

Chinese medicine posits that an imbalance in qi or fluid metabolism within the body can significantly influence blood pressure. Visualize it like too much water in a hose—increased pressure results. Alternatively, squeezing a hose leads to high pressure inside. Even emotions play a role; when tension mounts due to anger, blood pressure can surge. By addressing the excess fluid issue, diuretic formulas can help expel the excess water through urine.

Calming the Internal Winds:

Another trigger for hypertension could be the internal surging of wind within the body. To counter this, formulas aimed at soothing internal wind are employed. The relaxation induced by these formulas consequently eases vessel pressure. Chinese Medicine excels at diagnosing the underlying causes of elevated vessel pressure, allowing for precise herbal prescriptions devoid of side effects. These herbal remedies, taken several times a day between visits, provide a safe and user-friendly option.

Complementing Blood Pressure Medications:

Chinese herbal medicine works seamlessly with blood pressure medications. It's a safe and compatible option that can be effortlessly integrated into daily life.
