Lyme Disease — Acupuncture Brings Relief from Symptoms

Boost your immunity and health with acupuncture!

If you want to boost your immunity, and get relief from the symptoms of Lyme Disease, acupuncture is the answer!

Lyme disease by now is the best-known, worldwide example of a tick-borne disease. Many people have Lyme disease without experiencing any discomfort from symptoms. Many others are struggling with complex symptoms of Lyme, but are unaware that they are infected.

Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick, specifically deer ticks. This tick, which is infested with a spirochete, bites a human and transmits the bacterium into the bloodstream. The symptoms typically appear within 7 to 14 days. A simple blood test is all that is required to determine if Lyme disease is present.

Lyme disease produces toxins and lipoproteins which trigger the immune system to produce many different kinds of inflammation.

Typical symptoms include joint ache, a rash on the skin (particularly in the area surrounding the bite) that often looks like a bull’s eye, headaches, fever, profuse sweating and fatigue, and neurological issues, though all of the symptoms are not present in every case.

Lyme disease imitates a variety of illnesses and its severity can vary from person to person. Early detection and treatment is vital in preventing Lyme disease from advancing to the later stages.

At the earliest point in time, as soon as recognize you may have Lyme, go to a doctor, and get antibiotics immediately. The quicker and earlier the treatment, the better. The spirochetes are a serious problem that require proper antibiotics and MD care.

Give your health a boost with acupuncture!

Acupuncture is highly relevant and helpful for all phases of this disease, and is a wonderful addition to your primary support physician.

You will be amazed at the immediate improvement of joint symptoms, as well as the chronic fatigue factors that respond to the very first treatments. You can return to being pain-free, with a clear mind and good energy, without unpredictable ups and downs.

Acupuncture can improve the body’s immune response, the healing action, the body chemistry, and clearing the blockages in the energy pathways. Acupuncture also helps your brain to overcome the symptoms of neurological inflammation from the disease.

Depending on how long you have had Lyme, how many times, or how many years, you will need a series of treatments to hasten your complete recovery. Also important is ongoing attention to a healthy diet, nutritional supplementation, physical activity, and a positive mental outlook.

Lyme disease can be a very challenging condition to fight and recover from. As in all conditions and all patients, acupuncture treatment is always on a case-by-case basis. There are no harmful side effects and no possibility for addiction.

Acupuncture Helps Boost Your Metabolism — and Your Health!

Boost your health with acupuncture!

If you want to keep your appetite under control, improve your digestion, and enhance your overall health, acupuncture is the answer!

Metabolism is a key factor in weight control. Boosting the metabolism is the goal of those concerned about their weight everywhere. How quickly your body burns calories depends on several factors. Some people inherit a speedy metabolism, others do not. Men tend to burn more calories than women, even while resting. And for most people, the metabolism slows steadily after age 40.

Weight gain is often the result of disturbed energy flow to and from the hypothalamus, the regulating center of the brain.  Your body is a finely tuned instrument, and the hypothalamus is the body’s dispatch center that regulates hormones and neurochemicals, and helps to control body temperature, circadian rhythm, thirst and hunger. Acupuncture brings this energy back into balance.

A history of irregular eating, overeating and even thyroid dysfunction all contribute to a slow metabolism. Acupuncture can help to increase metabolism by stimulating the thyroid and endocrine glands as your body adjusts to the changes in your diet and exercise.

In addition, acupuncture can power up any other weight control strategy by curbing appetite, quelling cravings, improving digestion, regulating obesity-related hormones and enhancing the way nutrients are used. It also strengthens the function of the liver, the organ that produces many chemicals critical for digestion, processing nutrients and breaking down of fats. Acupuncture may also increase tone in the smooth muscle of the stomach to help people know that they are full.

Bonus: Acupuncture treatments release endorphins which have a calming and relaxing effect. It makes it easier to deal with stress, frustration and anxiety that can trigger overeating fattening foods.

Those endorphins also affect the digestive and hormonal systems. Acupuncture can help rebalance the organ systems that are running too fast, or in this case too slow; specifically your metabolism and will power. If lack of energy is an issue, acupuncture treatments will give that a boost, too!
