Acupuncture and Autoimmune Disorders
Many patients have found relief from Autoimmune Disorders due to acupuncture being proven an effective relief for inflammatory disorders. Here at The Emperor’s Medicine, we have developed various personalized therapies for the treatment of autoimmune diseases, that have been very successful in addressing the root cause of the disorder.
- Lupus –This is a systemic disorder that occurs when your immune system attacks your own organs and tissues, including skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, joints, and brain. Lupus has been classified as one of the most difficult diseases to diagnose because it has a tendency to mimic other diseases. One discrete symptom is the “butterfly rash”. This is a facial rash that looks like the unfolding wings of a butterfly. Symptoms of Lupus range from mild to severe and no two patient cases are exactly alike. The most common symptoms are skin lesions, fever, shortness of breath and joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. Chinese Medicine offered here at our practice has been proven to provide optimal wellness for patients with Lupus.
- Celiac Disease – Also known as gluten sensitivity, is the immune response to eating gluten. Gluten is found mostly in foods containing barley, rye, and wheat. Symptoms differ in patients and include itchy skin rashes, joint pain, heartburn, headaches, fatigue, acid reflux, and potential nervous system injury. Here at The Emperor’s Medicine, acupuncture has been a valuable treatment for those who suffer from celiac disease.
- Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis – This is a condition where your immune system attacks your thyroid, often leading to hypothyroidism. It mostly affects middle-aged women but has also been found to occur in men, women, and children of any age. Symptoms may include pale, dry skin, unexplained weight gain, muscle aches and tenderness, tongue enlargement, hair loss, fatigue, constipation, puffy face, and brittle nails. Here at The Emperor’s Medicine, our patients have benefited from our expert knowledge of combining both Chinese Medicine with Functional medicine and acupuncture for the thyroid to relieve autoimmune symptoms. We address the root cause of Hashimoto’s and come up with a personalized treatment plan to bring the body back into balance with acupuncture for thyroid.
