Disease & Viruses

There are dozens of common diseases that affect our population every year; everything from the common cold and flu to Lyme disease and cancer. While a visit to the acupuncturist may not be your first impulse when afflicted by these diseases, acupuncture can be a strong ally in lessening their length and severity, and bringing you comfort when prolonged treatment is necessary.

Lyme Disease

Lyme Disease is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick. Left untreated, it can lead to permanent problems with your heart, joints and nervous system. Symptoms of Lyme include joint ache, skin rash, headaches, fever and fatigue. If you believe that you have Lyme, go to a doctor immediately for antibiotics, then come in. Acupuncture is a highly recommended treatment for whatever stage of Lyme you are in, and can bring you immediate relief for your joint pain and chronic fatigue.


Acupuncture Helped My Lyme Symptoms

“After the initial ‘feel much better’ phase resulting from antibiotics, my body was back to random aches and pains. I never would have believed that acupuncture could help so much. After a few treatments my feet stopped aching and my energy returned. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone suffering from Lyme Disease.” — Gia W., Easton

Cold & Flu

In some years, the cold and flu season is worse than other years, both in terms of the number of people affected and the severity of the illness. Many people deal with the symptoms by taking over-the-counter medications, however these can have serious side effects. Others get flu shots, which can actually give you the flu. Tired of this yearly cycle? Try acupuncture. It is the one perfect way to optimize your immune system’s ability to keep you healthy, and to clear up a cold or flu quickly, when you do catch one.
