Acupuncture for Lyme Disease
Acupuncture & Chinese Medical has developed a special acupuncture technique that helps patients with Lyme Disease.
Lyme Disease can cause abnormalities in the skin, the joints, the heart, and the nervous system. Most patients are often also suffering from generalized fatigue, muscle and joint stiffness/pain, swollen glands, and headache.
How does acupuncture work for Lyme Disease?
Acupuncture can help Lyme Disease in 3 different ways:
Immune function--acupuncture can improve the functions of the immune system to fight the bacteria that cause Lyme Disease.
Pain--acupuncture has a direct pain relieving effect on the joint and muscle pain associated with Lyme Disease.
Hormonal--most people with Lyme also have adrenal insufficiency; acupuncture can help this by balancing/tonifying adrenal function.
Course of treatment
There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
