Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat pain and illnesses. Here is a list of conditions and ailments best managed by Chinese Medicine. Many patients in search of drug-free treatment of numerous problems and chronic diseases turn to Chinese Medicine as an option. First Health Associates’ Traditional Chinese Medicine department lists the top 10 conditions treated with acupuncture.
Today, many people turn to Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat chronic and acute diseases and ailments. In fact, Chinese Medicine has been used for thousands of years to treat the underlying cause of a variety of illnesses.
Essentially, the premise behind Chinese Medicine is self-healing. Acupuncture, a modality in Chinese Medicine, stimulates the body’s own innate self-healing mechanisms. In many cases, the body does not need drugs to heal. Often times, especially with chronic diseases, the body is responding negatively to external stimuli such as diet and lifestyle habits. So acupuncture can “reset” the body so that it comes back into balance. As a result, patients feel healthier and more energized and illnesses lessen or disappear completely.
Of course, it’s important to understand that Chinese Medicine is not a cure-all. Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture can complement Western medicine treatment of complex medical problems such as cancer or heart disease.
