Acupuncture Successful for Emotional Health
At some point in life almost everyone deals with major upheavals or emotional distress. These events can trigger a host of unexpected feelings and behaviors from depression and panic attacks to major disruptions in sleep or binge eating.
Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can alleviate symptoms associated with mental health issues in treating the root cause of the problem by helping to rebalance the body’s internal environment.
Mental health issues are medical conditions that disrupt a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning which result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life. The good news about mental disorders is that recovery is often possible.
Examples of serious mental health conditions that can be successfully treated using Acupuncture, Herbs, Nutrition and Homeopathy include: depression, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD),insomnia, and anxiety.
From an Oriental medicine perspective mental health disorders can cause a disruption in the flow of vital energy, or qi, through the body. Acupuncture treatments can correct these imbalances and directly affect the way your body manages your mental health.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Mental Disorders
Oriental Medicine treats the specific symptoms that are unique to each individual using a variety of techniques including acupuncture, lifestyle/dietary recommendations and Chinese herbs.
If 100 patients are treated with acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy and Oriental medicine for anxiety, each of these 100 people will receive a unique, customized treatment with different acupuncture points, and different lifestyle and diet recommendations.
Here are just a few problems acupuncture and Oriental medicine can help with:
