Acupuncture for Autoimmune Disorders
Autoimmune disease occurs when our immune system mistakenly identifies a part of our body as harmful and then attacks the tissue. It's basically under the impression that one's very own tissue is an enemy invader and therefore it must be destroyed. There are over 100 confirmed or suspected autoimmune diseases and each of them have triggers and side effects.
1 in 5 Americans suffer from an autoimmune disorder.
Over 50 million Americans suffer from some sort of autoimmune disorder. Some can be very mild like dermatitis but others can greatly effect the quality of a patients life. Western Medicine has NOT been able to find a cure for any of them and as in most cases focus on managing symptoms by avoiding triggers or suppressing the immune system. The meds often times leading to intense side effects like burning, organ damage and even cancer.
Acupuncture focuses on calming the body's immune system and reducing the body's sensitivity to the trigger. The goal for acupuncture is to reverse or stabilize the progression of the disease.
