Many couples that seek fertility treatment are now able to conceive. According to research, acupuncture and Chinese herbs can increase the chance of you getting pregnant. Pregnancy is a critical period in a woman’s life whereby so much is demanded of the body. Therefore, optimal health is the key to the well-being of both mother and child. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs have been shown to be safe and effective for many symptoms associated with pregnancy such as: anxiety and stress, back pain and sciatica, constipation, edema, mood changes, fatigue, morning sickness, heartburn, hemorrhoids.
There is a long recorded history of Chinese herbs being used in the treatment of infertility and miscarriage. The first book devoted to gynecology and obstetrics, "The Complete Book of Effective Prescriptions for Diseases of Women," was published in 1237 A.D in China. One recent study concluded that management of female infertility with Chinese Herbal Medicine can improve pregnancy rates 2-fold within a 4 month period compared with Western Medical fertility drug therapy or IVF1. But if you happen to think about IVF, supplementing the latter with Acupuncture can also help increase the success rate at which pregnancy can occur. That’s how Mariah Carey and Celine Dion became pregnant.
Allergy is defined as the disease of our immune system in which our body overreacts to certain substances, such as dust, pollen, grasses, mold, etc. According to Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, allergy is the 5th leading chronic disease in the U.S. among all ages, and the 3rd most common chronic disease among children under 18 years old. An estimated 50 million Americans suffer from all types of allergies (that’s 1 in 5 Americans) including indoor/outdoor, food & drug, latex, insect, skin, and eye allergies.
So, if you are one of the many people who suffer from stuffy/runny nose, watery eyes, itchy skin, allergic contact dermatitis, even sinusitis or sinus infection, we can help! At Acupuncture Center, every patient is unique. When you come to the clinic, we will evaluate and discuss with you the root causes of your allergy through various Traditional Chinese diagnostic techniques.
The general treatment approach for allergy will be to balance your immune system by strengthening the function of the affected organs such as your lungs and digestive system, as well as making sure that there is optimal blood circulation throughout your body. This is because blood contains chemicals and protein needed for your immunity (e.g., antibodies, white blood cells, interferon, complement protein, etc).
To treat your allergy naturally (without the side effects of those over-the counter anti-allergy drugs), we utilize Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and the power of healthy eating to strengthen your immunity.
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than two-thirds of adults in the United States are considered overweight or obese. Among young people ages 2-19, about one-third (31.8 percent) are considered overweight or obese. In 2008, the estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the U.S. was $147 billion. Generally, the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. Obesity is dangerous because it can lead to heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer.
If you struggle with your weight, yet you are aware of the unwanted side effects of diet pills and surgeries (e.g. blood clots, toxic reactions, kidney/heart problems, liver problems, infections, or even death), acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help you!
