Why acupuncture and herbs?

♦ Acupuncture and herbs work holistically. Traditional Chinese medicine views the human body as a well integrated system rather than a collection of individual parts, and treatment is geared to restoring overall balance to the entire system.
♦ The Food and Drug Administration has approved acupuncture needles as “safe and effective medical devices.”
♦ Treatments are also very safe. Many people become so relaxed and peaceful that they fall asleep while being treated.
♦ In 1997, the World Health Organization recognized Acupuncture as an effective method of treatment for 40 different medical conditions.
♦ Acupuncture has very few side effects. One research study in England showed that in 3000 acupuncture treatments, the only side effect was an occasional bruise.
♦ The combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine and western medicine helps in recovery from surgery.

How does acupuncture work?

♦ By boosting the immunity of the body. Acupuncture can increase the activities of natural killer cells and lymphocytes, and increase the blood concentration of antibodies.
♦ By increasing the pain threshold. Acupuncture can reduce neuronal response to painful stimulation while increasing the internal inhibitory effects on pain sensation.
♦ By reducing blood cholesterol levels. Certain herbs such as Hawthorn have been proven to decrease blood cholesterol level and prevent cardiac diseases.
♦ By reducing the level of stress hormones. Hormones such as norepinephrine, corticosterone and ACTH are reduced.
♦ By increasing anti-inflammatory effects. Acupuncture can help clear up inflammatory chemicals.
♦ By improving the anti-virus function of the immune system. Acupuncture can help prevent viral infection.
♦ By coordinating the functions of different bodily systems. Acupuncture and herbs help the body function holistically.
