EarSeeds are amazing!

My stress levels have been off the charts lately. You too? I’ve been practicing my breathing, trying to find time to meditate, and just taking it one day at a time.

One thing that always helps when I feel like this is EarSeeds. I stick them on the Stress / Anxiety points and I swear I can breathe deeper.  Sometimes I forgot I’m wearing them, and then it will dawn on me that I wasn’t feeling as stressed out for the last few days since I put them on. I am telling you about them because they’re awesome.

If you would like try EarSeeds, you can buy a do-it-yourself kit through my link below and of course that would be awesome.

For a personalized EarSeed treatment, you may contact me for an appointment convenient to you and I would be happy to help you.  I am a Certified Ear Seed Practitioner and love helping people with this technique.  It only takes about 10 minutes of your time and the cost is $25.

Acupuncture for Autoimmune Disease

There are more than 80 chronic illnesses that are immune related including rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease, inflammatory bowel disease, lupus, and celiac disease.

 

Autoimmune diseases result when the immune system mistakenly attacks its own body’s tissues. Immune deficiency is more common than most people think; around 20 percent of the population suffers from some form of an autoimmune disorder, according to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association.

 

Although symptoms vary greatly depending on the specific disease, commons symptoms include chronic fatigue, joint pain, muscle weakness, weight loss, dry eyes and abdominal pain.

 

Autoimmune diseases are not always easily treated, as they are a chronic illness with no known cure. However, there are natural ways to ease and reduce symptoms such as acupuncture treatment.

 

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, it is believed that immune deficiencies come from an imbalance in the body. When there is a stagnation in the body’s natural energy flow, called Qi, the body becomes out of balance, whether it is from a deficiency or excess of yin or yang.

 

Acupuncture works by addressing the body as a whole. By using specific acupuncture points on the body, the treatment is able to release any blockages and return the body back to its natural balance.

 

Research has shown that acupuncture can affect the release of hormones, proteins and chemicals in the body, which can affect blood pressure and the immune system.

 

Although there is no cure, immune deficiencies can be managed properly to have the best quality of life possible. Acupuncture has also been shown to help boost mood and lower stress and anxiety, which can be triggers for increased symptoms.

 

If you think you may have an autoimmune disease and are not getting a diagnosis, don’t give up. Immune deficiencies are hard to diagnose because of the wide range of symptoms. It may take multiple doctors to get a correct diagnosis.

 

Acupuncture is a safe, non-invasive treatment option that can decrease symptoms and improve overall well being.
