Imbalance in the distribution of Qi can bring on ill health. Poor Qi circulation leads to poor blood circulation. When the blood does not circulate adequately, the cells lose food, water, oxygen, and cellular detoxification of wastes and carbon dioxide. This lack of nourishment to the cells couples with toxic build up, leads to cellular illness, mutation, and death. Acupuncture restores the flow of Qi and blood to these areas of congestion, thus bringing them back to life. Selected acupuncture points are stimulated to balance Qi. As a result function returns and health is restored. Organ imbalance refers to the condition where the organs of your body are either working to hard, or not working hard enough. When one organ is weak the other organs of your body must pick up the slack. Just like a well functioning household, where tasks are equally divided. Where one person takes out the garbage, one person cooks, one person handles the finances, one person cleans, etc. If one person does not do his/her job, the others have to the work. If the person whose job it is to take out the garbage now has to cook, the garbage will pile up. Then the person who cleans has to also take out the garbage and the house becomes dirty, so on a so forth. The whole system becomes disrupted, and is in a state of imbalance. The same thing can happen with your organs and bodily systems. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine restore balance to the organ systems of the body and allows it to function optimally.
