Lyme Disease — Acupuncture Brings Relief from Symptoms

Boost your immunity and health with acupuncture!

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.

Why Haven’t You Tried Acupuncture? Let’s Explain the Fears Away…

Curious about Acupuncture?

Acupuncture. You’re been reading about it. Some of your friends and family may have tried it. You’ve been thinking about picking up the phone…but there’s something keeping you back. Are you interested in trying acupuncture but really want some questions answered? Problem solved! Read on…

First and most pressing…Does it hurt?

Here’s the initial caveat — every person is different, and can have different reactions. The actual sensations caused by the needles vary. Some people feel a little pain as needles are inserted, but most patients feel no pain at all. The needles are tiny, just a bit larger than a cat’s whisker or human hair.

The depth of needle insertion varies depending on the area of the body to be treated. For example, a fleshier area of the body may require a different needling technique. Typically, needles are inserted at depths ranging from 1/8” to 1 ½”. Many people find the treatment very relaxing, and often fall asleep!  Sometimes a little soreness in the treatment area can happen but generally dissipates within 24 hours of treatment. Proper rest and hydration is also recommended.

How safe is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a safe, all-natural, drug free therapy which yields no side effects. There is little danger of infection from the needles, which are sterile, used once and then discarded.

Here’s some of the benefits of acupuncture — less pain, better sleep, more energy, mental clarity, a stronger immune system, better digestion, less stress, less pain, and did we mention less pain?

How May Treatments Will I Need?

Acupuncture awakens your self-healing capabilities. The number of treatments varies from person to person. For some, relief will be immediate; others may take months or years to achieve results. Chronic conditions often take longer to resolve than acute ones. Plan on a minimum of a month of treatments to see significant change. 

What Conditions Can Be Treated by Acupuncture? Can you help me?
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognize acupuncture as an effective method of treatment for the following conditions: 

Allergies, addiction, ankle pain, anxiety, appetite control, arthritis, asthma, Bell’s palsy, blood pressure, bronchitis, cancer, carpal tunnel, chronic fatigue, cluster headaches, colitis, common cold, constipation, dental pain, depression, diarrhea, digestive trouble, ear aches, emotional problems, eye problems, food allergies, facial palsy/tics, fatigue, fertility, fibromyalgia, fibroids, frozen shoulder, gastritis, GERD, gout, headache, heartburn, high blood pressure, hot flashes, heel pain, incontinence, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, jaw pain, joint pain, low back pain, Lyme disease, knee pain, menstrual problems, menopause, migraine, morning sickness, Morten’s neuroma, muscle pain, nausea, neck pain, osteoarthritis, pain, PMS, rheumatoid arthritis, reproductive problems, rhinitis, sciatica, shingles, shoulder pain, sinusitis, sleep disturbances, smoke cessation, sore throat, sports injuries, stiff neck, stress, tennis elbow, tendonitis, tooth pain, torticollis, trigeminal neuralgia, tmj, urinary tract, vomiting, weight loss, and wrist pain.

See yourself somewhere on that list? Wouldn’t it be nice to feel less stress, less pain?

You Asked for a Walk in the Woods — And Now You Have Lyme Disease! Acupuncture Can Help!

Acupuncture Can Help Fight Lyme Disease!

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, and so are not getting treatment.

Left untreated, it leads to permanent problems with the heart, joints and nervous system. 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, 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.

Lyme disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick, specifically deer ticks. Deer ticks are extremely small (about the size of a poppy seed) and are found in tall grass, wooded areas and anywhere else where deer or other small rodents are present. This tick, which is infested with a spirochete, bites a human and transmits the bacterium into the bloodstream. The bacterium responsible for Lyme disease is a spirochete called Borrelia burgdorferi, which burrows its way into various tissues in the body, in particular the collagen tissues.

Fortunately, deer ticks don’t bite humans immediately upon contact; they typically spend several hours crawling around before attaching themselves to the skin. Even then, it takes longer than 12 hours after that for the disease to be transmitted, so finding a deer tick on your body isn’t necessarily an indication that you have been infected. However, if you have been bitten, 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.

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.

Acupuncture is highly relevant and helpful for all phases of this disease, and is a wonderful addition to your primary support physician. It can improve the body’s immune response, the healing action, the body chemistry, and correct and support the subtle energetics.

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.  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.

Lyme disease can be a very challenging condition to fight and recover from.  As in all conditions and all patients, each person’s regime of treatment is individually designed.

Acupuncture Helpful in Treatment of Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease is a disease that is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick. Left untreated, it leads to permanent problems with the heart, joints and nervous system.

Acupuncture:
At the earliest point in time, recognize you may have Lyme, go to a doctor, and get antibiotics immediately. The spirochetes are a serious problem that I believe require proper antibiotics (doxy) and MD care.
In addition, acupuncture is highly relevant for all phases of this disease. Whatever your stage is, hurry in to acupuncture. We will improve the immune response, the healing action, the body chemistry, and the subtle energetics that acupuncture is awesome at correcting and supporting.
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. This is encouraging, and 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. As in all conditions and all patients, each person’s regime of treatment will be individually designed.
