The combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbals, lifestyle and diet changes can make a huge difference in managing your auto-immune disease. There are over 80 types of auto-immune diseases. Some share the same symptoms, so getting a western diagnosis can be frustrating and stressful. Many patients are prescribed medications to decrease pain and inflammation but these medications cause severe unwanted side effects and do not get to the root cause of the problem.
Traditional Chinese herbals are prescribed on an individual basis with no side effects. Not only do the herbs help reduce pain and calm the inflammation, they also treat the root imbalance. When we treat the imbalance that caused the hyper activation of the immune system, we can then reduce the recurrence of flare ups. Infection and exposure to environmental toxins can trigger the immune system to attack itself. We assess foods, environmental exposures, latent or current viruses, and even supplements that could be exasperating your condition.
