Chronic Illness, Stress & Autoimmune Disease

Acupuncture and herbs present a viable and successful treatment for many chronic illnesses. Autoimmune disorders, such as MS, lupus and HIV can be helped by acupuncture and Chinese Medicinal Herbs. The "cocktail" of hormones released by the brain during acupuncture treatment boosts tissue healing and T-cell function.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can be used together with Western Medicine to help when you have already tried "everything else".

Digestive disoders, chronic fatigue and inflammatory disorders have all responded positively to our treatment.

Acupuncture for Cancer Treatment Side Effects

The National Institute of Health (NIH) Consensus Statement on Acupuncture of 1997 reported that acupuncture was "officially" accepted as excellent treatment for the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, including vomiting, fatigue and vertigo. As such, we treat many people in conjunction with their oncological specialists.

Research repeatedly demonstrates that acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine do help extreme fatigue, nausea, vomiting, leucopenia and anemia during cancer treatment.

We team with your doctors to help you to weather the storms of your cancer treatment: it's all about you!


A recent medical study published in Anesthesiology (June 2003) used ear acupressure to relieve stress and anxiety in patients being transported to the hospital in ambulances. Some got a real acupuncture points (acupuncture group), and some got a fake (sham) points (control group). At arrival, the stress level in the acupuncture group decreased sixty-six percent. In contrast, the stress level in the control group increased ten percent. Such studies indicate the effectiveness of acupuncture in-stress treatment.

Stress has become an expected ingredient in modern life. Long-term stress can rob our bodies of nutrients, of sleep, of appropriate neural response, of emotional centeredness and of immune strength. Acupuncture and herbs counteract the negative affects of stress on your health, bringing you back into balance, back to yourself and back into health.
