The Top 4 Reasons to Get Acupuncture this Autumn

Autumn is underway!
Here’s four great ways that acupuncture can boost you and your family’s health this season.

Would you like to relieve allergies, boost your immunity, and ease seasonal depression or anxiety?

Try acupuncture!

About 26 million Americans endure chronic seasonal allergies, while the number of people with milder symptoms may be as high as 40 million, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

Acupuncture is one of the major holistic therapies used for thousands of years to address the underlying energetic relationships in the body that makes those allergic reactions happen. Acupuncture treatments can give immediate relief from the symptoms, and further, it can address the variety of underlying causes.

Best of all, acupuncture is a great way to bring allergy relief and avoid the negative side effects that allergy medications can have.

In addition to allergy relief, acupuncture can boost your immunity. Acupuncture heals imbalances in your immune system and also restores energy channels that have become disrupted. When these channels are open, the immune function functions at an optimal level and your body stays healthy.

Acupuncture enhances the body’s defense mechanisms against viruses and bacteria. It also regulates the activity of white blood cells, which also fight against infection and allergic reactions.

That’s not all that acupuncture can help with — third on the list is seasonal depression.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) affects over ten million of us in the United States each year. Acupuncture can be very helpful for those who suffer from seasonal depression as it brings the body to a more balanced state, and even prevents complications.

In addition to depression, acupuncture is a powerful treatment for relieving anxiety. It is highly effective in treating emotional problems, and it also addresses the body, relieving the headaches, upset stomach, muscle aches, insomnia, and irritability that anxiety and stress can cause.

Stay healthy and happy, and enjoy the season more with acupuncture!

Summer is for Relaxing! Acupuncture Eases Anxiety and Stress

Don't Let Stress Get You Down! Acupuncture Reduces Anxiety

Don’t Let Stress Get You Down! Acupuncture Reduces Anxiety

Are you interested in a holistic approach to managing stress and anxiety? Acupuncture works!

Anxiety is a completely normal human emotion. Many people feel nervous or anxious when faced with work problems, before taking an exam, or making a challenging life decision. It’s a perfectly normal reaction to stress.

So what exactly is stressing us out? Whenever we experience a thought or event that we perceive as stressful, our bodies produce hormones and neurotransmitters that help us respond to the stressful situation by engaging in a conflict or fleeing.

This “fight or flight” response is important for motivating us to take action and avoid danger when necessary.  It is meant to be a short-term reaction to a situation that may be life-threatening. With continued or repeated stress without adequate time and resources for our bodies to recover, the “fight or flight” response can become chronic, and can interfere with someone’s ability to lead a normal life.

Acupuncture Helps You Relax!

Acupuncture Helps You Relax

Distress can disturb the body’s internal balance or equilibrium, leading to physical symptoms. Emotional problems can also result from distress. In the United States, anxiety disorders affect about 40 million adults — women twice more than men.

Acupuncture is a powerful treatment for relieving anxiety.

Acupuncture treats your mental, emotional and physical symptoms.  It helps relieve the headaches, upset stomach, chest pain, sexual dysfunction, muscle aches, insomnia, and irritability that anxiety and stress can cause, as well as reducing blood pressure.

The resulting effect from acupuncture is a feeling of relaxation, calm and an overall sense of well-being. Doesn’t that sound wonderful?

Upset Stomach? New Research: Acupuncture Effective For Dyspepsia

Image

New Study Shows Acupuncture Relieves Dyspepsia

The holiday weekend have your stomach feeling less than awesome?

New research concludes that acupuncture is effective in the treatment of dyspepsia. Dyspepsia is indigestion- also known as an upset stomach. It involves symptoms including abdominal pain, bloating, an uncomfortable sensation of heaviness or fullness after eating, nausea, belching and heartburn. Dyspepsia is often linked to GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), gastritis and gastrointestinal ulcers. In many cases, dyspepsia is not linked to an underlying organic disease. In biomedicine, dyspepsia is often treated with PPIs (proton pump inhibitors), which are a class of drugs known for the treatment of heartburn. However, long term use of PPIs is linked to gastric cell atrophy, which may lead to cancer.

Researchers examined a total sample size of 712 patients. They were randomly assigned to 6 groups. Group 1 received specific acupuncture points on the stomach (Leg Yangming) meridian. Group 2 received non-specific acupoints on the stomach meridian. Group 3 received acupuncture on alarm points and transport points. Group 4 received acupuncture on the gallbladder (Leg Shaoyang) meridan. Group 5 received sham acupuncture, which uses acupuncture needles applied to non-acupuncture points. Group 6 was administered itopride. Itopride is a drug made for the treatment of dyspepsia and many gastrointestinal disorders. It is a prokinetic benzamide.

Patients received 5 acupuncture treatments per week for a period of 4 weeks. Follow-up was documented 12 weeks following the treatment period. All groups improved, however, Group 1 had over a 70 percent success rate. Group 1 received specific acupuncture points on the stomach meridian. The group with the lowest success rate was the sham acupuncture group with only a 34.75 percent improvement. The researchers concluded, “Acupuncture is effective in the treatment of functional dyspepsia, and is superior to non-acupoint puncture. The benefit of acupuncture relies on acupoint specificity.”

This is excellent news!
