While there are people who believe that anything outside of Western medicine is not to be trusted, there are others who believe the Eastern medicine, particularly acupuncture is a superior treatment over Western medicine when it comes to effectiveness, benefits, and cost. During these times of soaring insurance and medical costs, more and more people are beginning to discover this type of holistic treatment that can be used for everything from stress to severe emotional and physical problems.

Acupuncture has been the Asian’s way of promoting a positive energy flow throughout the body and clearing out the obstacles from the various body systems. This treatment involves the insertion of slender needles on certain acupoints on the body. Acupuncture can have various techniques, as different needle-types and angles can change the result of the method.

Where the needles are inserted will depend on the problem or illness the patient is experiencing. Acupuncturists think that when they’re inserted into the body, the needles draw energy to the site of the pain or illness and create the energy flow required to heal conditions and promote health.

Acupuncture treatment was not considered a true medical option more than 20 years ago. Several new studies have shown that acupuncture produces extremely significant results in the treatment of various illnesses. These days, acupuncture treatments are now covered by several insurance plans.

The benefits of acupuncture include:

• Great adjunctive treatment for conventional medical interventions
• Enhanced strength and energy
• Stress relief
• Quicker recovery process from illness
• Reduced levels of pain or total removal of pain
• A stronger immune system

Certain people use acupuncture in Jacksonville for prevention against sickness and disease. They receive the treatment a number of times each week even if they are not experiencing a particular illness. Others opt for this Eastern healing tradition to reduce cellulite or to lose weight.

Patients with serious diseases such as AIDS, HIV, and cancer who have been treated with acupuncture say that it has provided them with higher levels of energy and significant relief of their distress and pain. In the treatment of candida infections, patients reported that the overgrowth of candida fungus has stopped with just a few rounds of acupuncture. It is a great way to help you regain balance in your body’s intestinal flora, where the candida tends to grow out of control. This improvement in the internal environment helps control the growth of yeast. Acupuncture is extremely effective especially when it’s combined with a candida diet.

Moreover, the ability of acupuncture to strengthen the immune system makes it a great choice for several infectious diseases. It can help prevent healthy people from becoming sick. With regular acupuncture treatments, one can maintain the positive flow of energy throughout the body every day. This is Eastern medicine’s way of enjoying good health each and every day.
