Many well-controlled studies have demonstrated that acupuncture can regulate and normalize immune responses, promote normal hormones and neurotransmitter production and reduce inflammation by stimulating natural anti-inflammatory production. Acupuncture can also help to promote normal organ functions and increase your energy level. Acupuncture, in combination with a healthy diet and exercise, can be a wonderful and effective way to maximize your health.
Acupuncture can treat a wide spectrum of digestive disorders including spasm of the throat and diaphragm, hiccup, gastroptosis, acute or chronic gastritis, acid reflux or heartburn, nausea, bloating and gas, IBS, constipation, diarrhea, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, hemorrhoids and fissures. With a combination of acupuncture, dietary changes and specific supplements, we will provide a targeted treatment plan to correct underlying problems in the digestive system, encourage healing and maintain a healthy gut.
Respiratory disorders can be effectively treated with acupuncture and Chinese herbs. Whether you are being treated for colds or the flu, acute or chronic laryngitis, acute or chronic bronchitis, pneumonia, or bronchial asthma or emphysema, acupuncture can help to improve your immune system and lung function as well as mitigate inflammation and phlegm production to alleviate congestion.
EAR, NOSE AND THROAT DISORDERS
Acupuncture can be used to treat toothaches, gingivitis, acute or chronic sinusitis, rhinitis, tonsillitis and TMJ disorder.
Acute conjunctivitis, central retinitis, myopia, cataracts, macular degeneration disease, retinopathy, glaucoma and strabisma can be treated with acupuncture.
IMMUNE SYSTEM DISORDERS
Many studies have shown that acupuncture can regulate the immune system to normalize immune responses. Therefore, we use acupuncture to treat autoimmune disorders in our patients. Allergies can be very effectively treated with acupuncture — most of our allergy patients receive immediate relief post-treatment. Acupuncture is also effective for treating other autoimmune disorders like asthma, hay fever, eczema, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, MS and ALS.
PSYCHOLOGICAL AND STRESS DISORDERS
Research has shown acupuncture can regulate neurotransmitter production. Many psychological disorders like anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, OCD and ADHD respond very well with the treatment, alongside treatment by a referring therapist. Acupuncture is also effective for insomnia, chronic fatigue, hypertension and substance abuse.
