—Surprising Effects of Stimulations Detested by Every Creature
1. Why do acupuncture and moxibustion —
needles and heat -- work for treatment?
Nobody likes to be stung or burnt. Actually, no creatures on earth ever did. In the evolutionary process, our brain learned to recognize stinging and burning sensations as the threat to life. We now react to such sensations before thinking. So, why do they work for treatment? The truth is, this is the key to the secret of acupuncture.
2. Memory of evolution
Human brains have two parts: the neocortex and the allocortex. The former regulates the conscious process and the latter unconscious. The allocortex is the center of our vital system. It automatically regulates the basic body processes and functions, such as motor reflex and metabolism. We developed this autoregulation system called "homeostasis" over the course of evolution. It is the basis of our intelligence and mental activities.
3. Activating the Primitive Part of the Brain
However, daily mental activities often stress us out. Too much mental stress lowers the function of the vital part in our brain and gets us out of shape. Ancient Chinese thought that wild animals have more vitality than us because the primitive systems are not under stress, and tried to live in harmony with nature. At the same time, they found the way to make good use of acupuncture and moxibustion to activate our primitive system and boost our vitality.
4. As good as meditation and breathing techniques
As well as acupuncture and moxibustion, meditation, yoga, or tai-chi, also helps us control the unconscious-level system. All these techniques relieve stress in our brain caused by overwork (it's like freeing memory on the computer). However, we need to invest considerable time and effort to benefit from such techniques. On the other hand, acupuncture is quick to work. Our brains are very sensitive to the stimulation by needles and heat. Acupuncture can instantly boost our vitality.b
