Acupuncture And Chronic Disease

  • Acupuncture has been proven to be an effective treatment for many chronic conditions through controlled trials.
  • It is important to remember that once nature has gone past a certain point, it is difficult to bring things back to the original state they were before the illness presented itself.
  • When seeking acupuncture for assistance with chronic medical conditions, do not expect to see your results shown only in the symptoms currently manifesting.

 

  • We help facilitate this achievement by balancing the body, mind and spirit.
  • When an individual is balanced it is more difficult for disharmony within the body to exist.
  • This is partially due to the fact that the body is not constantly working to "put out fires".
  • Once you are balanced and maintain that balance body, mind and spirit- your body is able to take that auxiliary energy that was previously necessary for critical functions and then use it to repair non critical functions.
  • One study sited that: "In addition to changes in their presenting symptoms people experienced whole-person effects that were characterized by changes in strength and energy, and changes in personal and social identity."
  • The more you take care of your entire self, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically the more energy we have to play with to facilitate your body's healing.
  • Acupunture may help to improve and/or even eliminate many symptoms of chronic illness.
  • Acupuncture is ideal for helping individuals manage chronic health conditions while they are also under the care of a medical doctor.
  • Some of the conditions acupuncture has been shown to be an effective treatment for include: hypertension, hypotension, headache, depression, sciatica, stroke, knee and back pain.
