“Winter is coming” is not only a famous line you hear on TV, but a reality that we face at the end of each year. Whether or not we feel the effects of global warming, it is naturally...
Acupuncture treatment do treat chronic fatigue syndrome by balancing the energy "Qi" and boosting up the digestion energy. It is very effective.
Hope you are feeling more energy soon.

People smoke with few reasons, one is addict to it, some are for de-stress and relaxation. some are just habits.
As long as you want to quite smoking, acupuncture treatment supports you with deep relaxation and detoxification. So you are not depending on smoking.
After treatment you may find out the cigarette smoke different which is not as present.
That is why people use acupuncture to quite smoking.
Hope you can quite it successfully soon

Thank you for asking this question. You must've found the answers are mixed. You are right; the reason the answers are mixed is due to a few reason: first, there are a few different types of arthritis and also different degrees of illness. Not all of them work with acupuncture treatment, but acupuncture can prevent your other joints from getting worse and help you reduce the pain, if your arthritis is not too bad. "Too bad" means you already have knee locked and form differently. If you are in the early stage of arthritis, I will suggest you do see an acupuncturist ASAP to prevent your knee from getting worse.
If your ulcer still in the bleeding stage, I will suggest take medication. Even you may not like medicine, because herbs are also part of natural medicine. If you are not in an acute stage, acupuncture can help you a lot. It doesn't treat the ulcer itself, but de-stresses.
Hope this answer is what you are looking for. Have a great one and wish you feel better soon,
Yes, acupuncture and even herbal medicine can be very effective for treating eczema. Western medicine often masks symptoms rather than getting to the root of why they are occurring. Acupuncture and/or herbal medicine can help discover the underlying imbalance which is causing the eczema to occur, thus treating the root.
Hope your sister feels great soon,
Yes, acupuncture and moxa can help arthritis. Both support the Qi (life energy) to move in the body and it reduces the pain and increases the mobility of joints.
Hope you can get benefit soon.
I agree with you. Your daughter is too young to be on med. I believe acupuncture and oriental medicine can offer some nature ways to treat depression.
Please don't hesitate to seek an acupuncturist and start treatment soon.
Usually, acupuncture treatment helps depression. Some severe depression may need longer care. Knowing your mother's health condition will help to say if acupuncture can help her or not.
Acupuncture and moxibustion boost hemoglobin levels. If your husband is okay with taking Chinese herbs, it will work even better.
Hope he will gain benefits sooner.
From acupuncture and an oriental medicine point of view, fatigue is part of energy def. By boosting your energy through acupuncture treatment or herbal supplements, this will help you a lot.
Hope you gain benefit sooner by seeking an acupuncturist soon.
Take good care,
Sorry that you have been suffering from lower back pain. Acupuncture is very helpful for treating lower back pain. It helps quickly to relieve muscle tightness and spasms. It also can treat slightly bulged discs.
Hope this information helps. Good luck and find an acupuncturist soon.
These slippers stimulate the reflexology points in the feet. I believe they work and can get some benefits, but everyone's feet are slightly different, so these slippers may not get the best results.
This is a very great question. Acupuncture does treat sleep problems. I will suggest trying acupuncture first. Some sleep problems are different. Some are due to stress, or imbalance of your nerve systems, or lack of melatonin, etc. Through different diagnosis, acupuncture can help you get better.
I believe all well-trained acupuncturists know some points can't be used during pregnancy. It is quite safe to continue to get acupuncture treatment, especially if you are worried about taking medicine during this period of time.
Hope your physician can understand this. BTW, change in diet is also good for the cholesterol problem. You also can consider this option.
Will this be your first baby? Congratulations!

You have a great question. My answer is, it depends. It depends on what issue you are working with acupuncture, or how long you have had this issue. Some might need longer care than others.
Hope you understand.

This is a great question that usually people take medicine to control their hypertension with for the rest of their lives. I do see people getting better or who don't need to take medicine after long-term acupuncture treatments. The difference is acupuncture tries to treat the root of the health issue. By doing so, the body recovers.
My answer for you is YES, it is safe to get treatment with medication, but for the long-term, you might recheck with your doctor to adjust your medicine.
If you are taking herbs, this needs to be more discussed due to the same effect in the body. Please check with an herbalist about that.
Hope you are feeling better sooner.

This is a good question, but I would like your attention. Lack of sex drive could be for a few reasons: they might be tired, no energy; might be physiological, emotionally; might be uncomfortable feeling, aging with hormone changing, etc.
I will suggest the best way is to be honest with your wife, sincerely discuss this first. Maybe she doesn't think this is an issue for her side. If she also finds this is an issue, she'd probably like to be treated. Acupuncture helps her to balance emotional, hormonal, and some physical issues.
Hope you two can talk it through and find some common ground.

In the Chinese medicine point of view, it could be a few points you can think about:
1. Stress related: Stress will decrease digestion function and cause problems.
2. Diet: you may eat some foods that your body can feel bad and get gas faster.
3. Lack of good and friendly bacteria in the body.
4. Do you like to eat fried foods and dairy? When the digestive system is not strong, these foods tend to cause more problems.
Hope these few points for you to think about and acupuncture and herbs help.

Yes, acupuncture helps. It helps you to concentrate and focus; it also helps de-stress, which a lot of people find it helps for doing their job. Acupuncture can't do your job for you, but make your job more joyful.
Hope this answer helps.
