Chinese Medicine & Qi with Cody Begdorian, LAc

Last month I touched on the importance of improving blood function for women as it’s the most common disharmony.  This month we move on to explain how important Qi is for men’s overall health.  What the heck is Qi?  You may hear that Qi is “energy” or “vital energy”.  I believe the easiest way to wrap your head around Qi is comparing it to oxygen.  When our organs are highly oxygenated, they work the way they were designed to.  I see a lot of men coming in for injuries, stress and male reproduction complaints.  The main issue in these cases is the oxygen isn’t flowing to the organs, tissues, or even to the blood as blood follows Qi.  Injuries are a result of blood and oxygen not getting to the location of pain or discomfort which ultimately results in slower healing or chronic pain.  Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs assist the body in moving and nourishing the blood and increasing oxygen to relieve pain and shorten heal time.  Stress is a result of Qi (oxygen) not moving freely in a balanced way and getting stuck in certain organs, resulting in deprivation of said Qi to the other organs.  This is why many times when you’re stressed you can’t sleep, your digestion is impaired or you become anxious.    With specific male complaints such as impotence or night-time ejaculation, your kidneys are not getting the necessary oxygen to control the function of keeping fluids in or releasing fluids at the appropriate time.  For anyone experiencing these or similar symptoms or complaints, please visit my website for more information or to make an appointment with your local Chinese Medicine Practitioner.

Portland-based acupuncturist and owner of Maxxed Out Acupuncture knows the magic of the needle. The teeny, tiny needle. The needle he once feared. Although you will not find him swaddled in linen, om-ing on a meditation cushion, you will find him chewing his food, enjoying a morning minus an iPhone and taking a mindful breath.

Having felt and lived the need for a new way of doing life, Cody helps his patients do the same. He specializes in assisting the people who think acupuncture is only for the kombucha brewing, chicken rearing, kale growing folk. Not true. It’s for anybody who has not taken a deep breath since ‘87, who wakes up to email for breakfast and who has a self-regenerating to-do list.

CODY PAYS ATTENTION TO THE SMALLEST OF DETAILS TO CURATE CUSTOMIZED TREATMENT PROTOCOLS TO ADDRESS THE AILMENTS THAT ARE SUCKING THE LIFE OUT OF YOUR LIFE.
