Our bodies have an intricate self-protecting mechanism that keeps us safe from external pathogens and potential threats to our wellbeing. Unfortunately, as a result of the way we are living today, with increasing levels of stress, inadequate nutrition and an overload of environmental toxins, the immune system is in a constant state of high alert and many of the symptoms that we present with are a reflection of this extreme state of being.
This can be seen today with the rising incidence of autoimmune disorders, chronic inflammatory disorders and seasonal & food allergies. Chinese medicine effectively resolves these imbalances by working to regulate your immune system, lower stress levels, decrease inflammation, manage symptoms, and rid the body of unwanted toxins in order to rebalance your body to a state of health.
- Seasonal allergies affect one third of Americans. According to a study published in Allergy Magazine, a combination of Chinese herbs and weekly acupuncture sessions is a useful way of alleviating the symptoms and may help prevent allergies all together.
- Several studies have also been done on TCM and chronic fatigue. These studies incorporated acupuncture with other TCM modalities. The conclusion of each study was that patients had significant improvement in energy, muscle strength, sleep, headaches, and memory.
