For Our Aging Population - Acupuncture + Chinese Medicine

Peter Kadar

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) prizes longevity and vitality above all human experiences. Respect for the elderly and supporting them throughout the aging process is evident to anyone who has visited China, Japan, Korea and other countries in East Asia. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have long been used by people in their 60s, 7s, 80s and beyond to help prevent common aging disorders. These include inflammation, joint pain, fatigue, senility, heart disease and circulatory problems, breathing weakness and other diseases. Acupuncture and herbal formulas strengthen vitality energy or Qi, nourish the original energy (Jing) and warm the Kidneys, Spleen and Lungs.

I have treated many aged and very aged patients with these and other problems and most have responded very well. Chronic problems do not go away or get “healed”. Rather the patient begins to feel better and function more energetically and with less pain when they undergo regular acupuncture treatments and add medicinal herbal formulas to their medications and supplement regimen.


Senile dementia or Alzheimer’s is particularly difficult for most families and there is no medical cure. However recent studies have shown that acupuncture can play a very beneficial role in the treatment of elderly with these aging disorders. It helps prolong mental acuity and memory, reduce irritability and promote positive moods and behavior, and support the patient with physical activities involving balance, motor function, and pain management. Usually an initial schedule often 10 acupuncture treatments at the rate of twice weekly is recommended but I have found that many patients respond very well after the initial treatments.

We know the value of supporting our parents, grandparents and other seniors as they age and can live longer than ever. We are aware of optimizing their well-being and ability to live independently or with assistance and do so with dignity and well-being.
