Acupuncture and Asthma

Can Acupuncture Help With Asthma?

Asthma is characterized by two factors: a deficiency of Lung and Kidney's Defensive (Chi)Qi Systems (root cause). Late-onset Asthma is more often characterized by Spleen deficiency manifesting with a swollen tongue (The Practice of Chinese Medicine by Giovanni Maciocia). Acupuncture can help with asthma relief by boosting the immune system and treating the root cause.
