Chinese medicine is quickly gaining popularity among celebrities in Hollywood. Many celebrities have used Chinese remedies to treat their health problems. Some celebrities have used acupuncture to treat infertility problems including Helena Carter, Celine Dion and Mariah Carey. They claimed that acupuncture helped them to cope with the stress of getting pregnant and are under the firm belief that acupuncture plays an important role in helping them to conceive. More and more celebrities are using acupuncture as fertility treatment after realizing the benefits it produce on the health.
Elle McPherson, a supermodel, told the tabloids that she often undergoes acupuncture as part of her routine to maintain a healthy body. McPherson believed that Chinese medicine helps her to maintain the overall wellbeing of her health. Another celebrity, Gwyneth Paltrow, claimed that acupuncture helped her to cope with depression when she lost her father.
Dr. Maoshing Ni, an acupuncture specialist who runs a clinic in Santa Monica revealed that he has two celebrity clients including Jim Carrey and Helen Hunt who frequently come for routine acupuncture treatment. Jim Carrey believed that his physical health has improved a lot after he underwent acupuncture treatment. He claimed that the nutritional advice given by Dr. Maoshing Ni has helped him look younger.
While the fact that many celebrities hold a keen interest in Chinese herbs and medicine may not be surprising, the issue of them using the treatment for their pets certainly is. For example, Sarah Michelle was seen bringing her pet pooch called Tyson to the clinic for acupuncture treatment. Even though she is the only person to fall into this category for the time being, don’t be surprised to see the situation change as more celebs start to jump on the trend.
Chinese medicine has grown to become so popular because many studies have proved that it can relieve pain effectively. It has been introduced to Americans since the 1970s through the newspaper media. Now, with celebrities acknowledging the health benefits of Chinese medicine, it has become even more widely acceptable by people around the world.
Journal of NeuroImage claimed acupuncture has the ability to regulate and soothe pain by affecting the opioid receptors in the brain. National Institutes of Health (NIH) of the United States stated that Chinese medicine can be used as an effective treatment in more than two hundred health conditions. Some of the health problems that can be treated through Chinese medicine include respiratory disease, eye problems, oral disease, digestive disease, joint problem, and muscle disorders. Acupuncture can enhance the natural healing process of your body so that you will recover faster from your illness. In addition, it also can reduce inflammations on the joints and bones.
Chinese medicine practitioners and acupuncturists usually will evaluate your illness symptoms before prescribing a treatment. It is advised that you describe every single one of your symptoms to the physician accurately so that he can prescribe the correct Chinese medicine treatment. You should only see an accredited Chinese medicine physician that is approved by well-known association such as the American Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. Of course, when it comes to Hollywood, such concerns do not mark modern celebrities although that certainly does not mean to say that you should let your guard down and become careless when considering such treatment.
