Neurological Conditions and Chinese Medicine

Neurological diseases are some of the most devastating conditions one can deal with. These diseases have been estimated to affect nearly 1 billion people worldwide by the World Health Organization. With the help of Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine, many people suffering from neurological conditions have been able to move past their ailments and improve their quality of life dramatically. One such example is the story of one of my patients, Mrs. G.

Mrs. G loved to garden. She had always had an active lifestyle, participating in charity events and taking care of the neighborhood children. Yet, when she had a stroke a year and a half ago, she just wasn’t the same person anymore. Unable to move about properly she had to rely on her walker, and even that sometimes was difficult.  In strokes, the blood vessels within the brain become blocked or rupture damaging certain areas of the brain. When this occurs cells in the brain related to specific functions can die off or underperform, possibly resulting in the inability to perform actions we were once able to do.

Despite the pressing nature of neurological conditions, conventional medicine often falls short of our expectations. Prescribing medications that are sometimes ineffective and frequently consist of side-effects that are nearly as painful to deal with as the neurological condition itself. These side-effects can include dizziness, pain, impaired thinking, fatigue, etc.

Chinese medicine, on the other hand, is no stranger to neurological conditions like stroke, dysautonomia, migraines, epilepsy, etc. With its multi-millennial history, Chinese medicine is very familiar with the broad spectrum of bodily dysfunction. Through the use of acupuncture and herbs, practitioners are able to help you re-balance your body, restoring you to health in an effective and natural way. There is no reason for you to suffer when there is a solution within your grasp. The general rule-of-thumb is that the most effective time to begin acupuncture treatment post-stroke is within the first six months. Starting treatment after the first six months can still be very effective though.

Tired of her impairment, Mrs. G decided to seek our help for treatment. She found the acupuncture to be relaxing and the herbs easy to take and affordable. Noticing a steady improvement in her condition after a couple of sessions, she was optimistic about the future. Though she could have never imagined that in just a few weeks that she would be walking all by herself down the clinic hallway with the biggest smile you ever saw.

Cases like Mrs. G’s are not rare when Chinese medicine is properly applied. Here at ACU4U, we tailor your treatments for your unique case. The acupuncture points and herbs we use are designed to specifically target the issues you are dealing with to help you get back to as close to your normal as possible. Chinese medicine is by no means a cure-all, but it is an effective alternative with a strong record of success where conventional medicine often fails.  If you are tired of being limited by neurological conditions, I suggest that you call us at ACU4U and set up an appointment for your free initial consultation. It’s time for you to get your life back on track.
