Let Acupuncture Put a Spring in Your Step!
By Anna Pyne LAc MSOM FABORM
Acupuncture is a great remedy for alleviating depression due to any cause.
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) every organ is paired with a season.
Springtime can bring with it a seasonal sense of melancholy. According
to TCM spring is the time of the Liver (not to be confused with the Western
medical organ). The Chinese medical Liver is responsible for the smooth
even flow of the energy in the body. When the energy flows unobstructedly
the emotions are then enabled to flow evenly and smoothly, keeping depression
at bay. Springtime can be a trigger for people with a tendency towards
Liver problems such as depression as it is the season of the Liver. I
have helped many patients successfully who suffered with depression whether
it was seasonally caused, a result from undergoing a medicated fertility
treatment cycle, or even postpartum depression. Fertility treatment cycles
can be quite stressful for example hearing the results of monitoring,
not knowing exactly what an optimal response is to the medications, keeping
all of the medications in order and administrating them correctly, let
alone the physical and emotional side effects felt as a direct result
of taking the hormones. Acupuncture can help mitigate or eliminate emotional
stress while going through a fertility journey, if its seasonally related,
or when dealing with postpartum depression.
