Fibromyalgia is a condition WHA specializes n. Here's a little read about how acupuncture can help!!
Acupuncture has truly stood the test of time for pain relief. It has moved millions from a place of pain and suffering to a place of health and wellbeing. And acupuncture is not limited to just treating pain. It also relieves fatigue as well as addressing mental/emotional issues such as depression and anxiety. Universities like Duke and Harvard and hospitals like Cedar Sinai and Mayo Clinic have presented decisive scientific research proving acupunctures effectiveness.
“We found that acupuncture significantly improved symptoms of fibromyalgia. Symptomatic improvement was not restricted to pain relief and was most significant for fatigue and anxiety.” Dr. David Martin, Mayo Clinic, PMID: 16770975
Researchers at the University of Michigan Health System found that acupuncture used to treat fibromyalgia patients reduced pain significantly after only four weeks. Researchers also found lower levels of pain was linked to lower levels of glutamate in the brain, suggesting it could be used as a biological indicator of the degree of pain relief.
Groundbreaking research at the Mayo Clinic found that acupuncture considerably improved symptoms of fibromyalgia. Doctors were surprised that not only did acupuncture offer pain relief but it also gave significant relief for fatigue and anxiety…perhaps the best treatment available today in their opinion.
In another study, participants receiving acupuncture were compared to others administered amitriptyline, a common prescription drug used for fibromyalgia. Researchers showed that the patients who received the acupuncture were the only ones to significantly relieve pain, depression and improve their general mental health after only the first month.
Imagine not having to rely on pain medications that have dangerous side effects. Think about how wonderful life would be to have the energy and pep to do the things you love to do.
If you are plagued with constant or recurring fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue symptoms, if you’re dead tired and in pain all day, if you worry about being able to play with your children because you always feel “miserable,” you might consider getting a course of acupuncture.
