Lyme disease can cause a wide range of symptoms including muscle and joint pain, stiffness, lack of energy and headaches all of which can be addressed through acupuncture.
Acupuncture can help relieve Lyme disease symptoms in 3 ways:
1. By improving the functions of the immune system to fight the bacteria that cause Lyme disease.
2. By relieving pain associated with Lyme disease.
3. Since most individuals with Lyme disease also have adrenal insufficiency; acupuncture will balance the adrenal function. A balanced adrenal system will help eliminate the lack of energy associated with Lyme disease. Course of Treatment
Weekly acupuncture treatments are recommended. Herbal formulas are also suggested. It can take up to three months or less before symptoms - as well as improved health - can be felt.
