There are a wide variety of autoimmune diseases.
Symptoms vary depending on the autoimmune disease. The most common symptom is fatigue.
With our acupuncture treatments, we relax the nervous system, nourish hormones, balance emotions, along with improving energy and blood flow.
Autoimmune diseases occur when the body's natural defense system can't differentiate between your own cells and foreign cells, causing the body to mistakenly attack normal cells. There are more than 80 types of autoimmune diseases that affect a wide range of body parts. No one is positive what exactly can cause autoimmune diseases. In many cases, it can be a combination of factors at work, such as family history or environmental triggers. A few common autoimmune diseases include Type 1 diabetes, Lupus, Chron’s, Colitis, MS, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Fibromyalgia, and Psoriasis.
There are many symptoms, depending on which autoimmune disease you have. The most common symptoms experienced by people with autoimmune disease are fatigue, body pain, heaviness in legs, weakness in legs, bloating, poor sleep, tender skin to touch, and just a general feeling of blah (malaise). With our acupuncture treatments, we relax the nervous system, nourish hormones, balance emotions, along with improving energy and blood flow.
At Acupuncture Wellness Services, we use a combination of modalities and techniques to regulate the flow of energy in the body to achieve outstanding results. The extensive training and experience of our practitioners enables them to successfully blend time-tested and ancient treatment protocols with modern and sophisticated therapies. One of the greatest benefits of our procedure is the ability to detect and correct energetic sensitivities to foods and the environment that might be creating symptoms in your body. Each patient is treated individually, and so the combination of techniques is determined at the time of evaluation. Our treatments integrate well with western medicine, chiropractic, massage therapy, occupational therapy, dental work and nutritional healing.
“Five years ago I was diagnosed with an autoimmune condition called Hashimotos Thyroid. I was gaining weight, irritable, body pains and hair loss. Medication was helping but didn’t fully take care of symptoms. When I started acupuncture a year ago with Dr Nicole I was not sure if she could help. But I have seen a dramatic improvement in my symptoms and I am so thankful! I feel more like myself.”
