For some, just going to a restaurant is a daunting experience.
Chronic illness can be overwhelming for both sufferers and their families. And treating chronic health problems is a complex and uncertain process. Sufferers often undergo a variety of treatments that don’t guarantee a cure. Uncertain, expensive and intrusive treatments can take a toll on our personal lives and impact our careers, relationships and overall enjoyment of live.
Many medications only treat the symptoms, meaning that they’ll come back once you stop treatment. Oftentimes, sufferers will have to try several different medications, which are not guaranteed to work and may actually cause devastating side effects. Acupuncture gets to the core of illnesses and heals both the symptoms and the source of the problem.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative that addresses the underlying causes of chronic health conditions.

How can acupuncture treat or alleviate my chronic health problems?
Chronic illness is oftentimes caused by excess or deficiency. During treatment, tiny needles are inserted into the body. These needles activate the body’s nervous system to send energy (or qi “chee” as it’s called in Chinese medicine) to areas of the body that are blocked by inflammation. This reactivated energy flow flushes out toxins and restores hormonal balance and circulation in the areas that are causing the illness.
What about illnesses that don’t have a cure yet?
Some health problems have yet to find an effective cure. In those instances, acupuncture can help manage symptoms so that sufferers may feel their best given their circumstances. In fact, a study performed by the Mayo Clinic found that acupuncture relieves symptoms of fibromyalgia, including decreased fatigue and anxiety. According to a 2014 study, the US National Library of Medicine claims that acupuncture “exhibits clinically and statistically significant control of IBS symptoms.”
Recovery typically takes one month for every year you have had your condition.
