Treating Autoimmune Disease With Acupuncture

  • If you or someone you know is afflicted with an autoimmune disease you are probably aware that your autoimmune system accounts for less that 1% of our total immune systems.
  • Doesn't that make you wonder how such a small percentage of such a vast system can reek such havoc in our bodies?

 

  • In our practice we have had the best results in helping with types II, III and IV hypersensitivity.
  • We are not able to cure the diseases associated with the above categories.
  • However, we are able to facilitate balancing the individual on all levels which may help to maintain remission.
  • Balancing may help to keep the autoimmune response at bay and/or lessening its severity if and when triggered.
  • Balancing may also help to prevent abnormal organ growth and unwanted changes in organ function.

 

  • We will assist to help in type I hypersensitivity, but must stress that receiving acupuncture treatment is not a substitute for an Epi-Pen or other life saving interventions that may be necessary for such severe autoimmune reactions.
  • When treating autoimmune conditions our practice chooses to use a combination of acupuncture styles, taking from Classical Five-Element Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Japanese Acupuncture and Korean Acupuncture as well as the potential addition of herbs, supplements and flower essences.
