There are many ways acupuncture can help you achieve better health. In its simplest terms, acupuncture works to restore your body’s natural function using your body's own healing abilities. Acupuncture enhances the body’s immune response, promoting the activity of Natural Killer Cells as well as T helper cells which help the body identify foreign invaders. Acupuncture can help reduce the severity and duration of various illnesses. What is seen clinically is patients who get sick less often with less intensity. Allergies can be improved as can the body’s ability to fight sickness.
Acupuncture is also known for pain relief. Chronic pain can be debilitating and lead to reduced quality of life. Often it can lead by a stepping stone to suppressed immune functionality. Chronic pain can not only be taxing but can lead to systemic inflammation, driving up risks for more serious illnesses. This constant pain can take its toll mentally with more afflicted individuals suffering mental health disorders such as depression.
By releasing endorphins, the body’s own pain-killing chemicals, acupuncture treatments can reduce inflammation and reduce muscle tension all while improving circulation. Acupuncture can successfully treat a wide range of acute and chronic pain conditions. It also releases feel-good chemicals, Dopamine and Serotonin, while lowering the stress hormone Cortisol. This can lead to a calm, relaxed feeling.
In addition to calming, patients of acupuncture find it helps regulate hormones and neurotransmitters related to sleep. This allows for easier sleep and waking feeling more rested. Sleep is the main driver of immune function due to the fact that lack of sleep can break down nearly every process in the body.
Acupuncture is documented for helping regulate the central nervous system while reducing stress and facilitating healing. It can assist in pain management and sleep while improving circulation and diminishing inflammation in the body. Acupuncture is a treatment that is noted to promote overall wellness in all that pursue this health path.
