Although symptoms vary greatly depending on the specific disease, commons symptoms include chronic fatigue, joint pain, muscle weakness, weight loss, dry eyes and abdominal pain. Autoimmune diseases are not always easily treated, as they are a chronic illness with no known cure. However, there are natural ways to ease and reduce symptoms such as acupuncture treatment.
In Chinese Medicine, it is believed that immune deficiencies come from an imbalance in the body. When there is a stagnation in the body’s natural energy flow, called Qi, the body becomes out of balance, whether it is from a deficiency or excess of yin or yang. Our essence or life force energy can be fine tuned using various forms of Chinese Medicine. Andrea’s 20 years of learning, teaching and administering this medicine allows her to see your personal issues and create a program of wellness especially designed for you. Using acupuncture, massage therapy and herbal or dietary knowledge, Andrea creates a customized program and traces your progress through the program, modifying and enhancing the treatments as your healing and awareness improves.
Acupuncture works by addressing the body as a whole. By using specific acupuncture points on the body, the treatment is able to release any blockages and return the body back to its natural balance. Research has shown that acupuncture can affect the release of hormones, proteins and chemicals in the body, which can affect blood pressure and the immune system.
Although there is no cure, immune deficiencies can be managed properly to have the best quality of life possible. Acupuncture has also been shown to help boost mood and lower stress and anxiety, which can be triggers for increased symptoms. Acupuncture is a safe, powerful, non-invasive medicine that can decrease symptoms and improve overall well being.
