Watch this video to learn how acupuncture helps manage autoimmune conditions.
The American Autoimmune Association estimates up to 50 million Americans suffer from autoimmune disease. In addition, researchers have identified 80-100 different autoimmune diseases and suspect at least 40 other conditions of having an autoimmune basis. These diseases are chronic and can be life-threatening.
What Is Autoimmune Disease?
An autoimmune disease develops when your immune system mistakenly defends your body by deciding that healthy cells are foreign. As a result, your immune system overacts on healthy organs. Depending on the type, an autoimmune disease can affect one or many different types of body tissue.
Some of the more common autoimmune conditions we treat include chronic Lyme disease, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, chronic inflammatory response syndrome, multiple sclerosis, ankylosing spondylitis,Crohn’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, Hashimoto’s, and psoriatic arthritis.
Acupuncture Treats Autoimmune Conditions
Autoimmune conditions reflect an imbalance in the body. For example, the immune system thinks healthy cells are foreign, attacking them. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for autoimmune conditions because it restores balance in the body – it reduces the triggers aggravating the immune system.
Your acupuncture treatment starts with a comprehensive intake exam where we ask questions about your health, feel your pulse, and examine your tongue. This information enables us to determine the imbalances in your body that need attention. Then, we create a treatment plan to address them. From the moment of your first treatment, your body will start to realign. The result will be better health and relief from the symptoms of your autoimmune condition.
What To Expect
Acupuncture needles are sterile, single-use, and hair-thin. In addition, treatments are relaxing. Many of our patients fall asleep during their sessions. Afterward, you will feel a sense of calm and rejuvenation.
What our Clients are Saying
Raleigh Acupuncture has helped me a great deal managing my MS. Since I began treatment my pain has decreased by 80%, my balance has improved and my mental fog lifted. I am so grateful for their expertise in treating this condition. I recommend them to anyone with MS.
I’m an RA veteran, having been diagnosed over 20 years ago. So I know all about the treatments and what they can do. Somehow I had overlooked acupuncture. Maybe it was a bias against “alternative” medicine. In any case, my aunt pressured me into trying her acupuncturist. She goes for asthma treatments, but said that the acupuncture treatment for auto-immune disease was similar. My research was inconclusive, but I decided to give it a try. I knew it couldn’t make my condition worse.
To my surprise the acupuncture has substantially reduce my daily pain levels. My flares are less frequent and intense, and pain does not move as quickly from place to place. The doc at Raleigh Acupuncture said there was indeed a connection between RA and other auto-immune diseases in the way Chinese medicine approached treatment. They said that the acupuncture slows the auto-immune response. I can actually feel that happening inside my body.
So I’m taking less medications, having less pain, and am able to be more active. Acupuncture is now an important component of my wellness plan for RA. I’m very grateful to Raleigh Acupuncture for their continued help.
I am newly diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis (six months ago). My pain was traveling from my hips to feet, with something hurting pretty much all the time. My doctor suggested I try acupuncture as part of my therapy. He had referred other patients to Raleigh Acupuncture and they reported success. I’m feeling much more optimistic since going there. Before the acupuncture, my pain was really bad. Since I’ve started acupuncture, my pain has decreased by half at least. The acupuncture doctor really understands what I’m going through.
The doctor at Raleigh Acupuncture was brilliant at reducing my pain from RA. My wrists and ankles were so bad I could not walk. After a series of treatments the pain is 90% better and I’m living my life like normal. If you’ve got RA, you MUST try acupuncture. I shared my story with my RA support group. They were all queasy about the idea of acupuncture. I told them they were crazy not to make an appointment with my acupuncture doctor. The treatment doesn’t even hurt. I wish I knew about this 5 years ago when I was first diagnosed!!
I still am forever in your debt for helping me through the Lymes recovery. My body pain and fatigue were overwhelming before getting acupuncture. I still tell everyone today that I am 100% positive that my recovery was a direct result of your expert care. Truly. I have very little residual effects from the disease that I can easily live with. So again,thank you not only for your amazing skills, but for the compassion and kindness that you showed me during that time.
