Ms. Janice Fluellen Campbell M.AC., L.AC., ADS's Expert Contributions
Yes. Arthritis is a form of chronic inflammation and Chinese Medicine has a variety of tools that can help address that - acupuncture, herbs, and some dietary and life coaching. That being said, depending on your condition, you may need to continue your western meds, only at a lower dose. It will depend your particular assessment. Regardless, any reduction in western medication must be discussed with your M.D. It is not within our scope of practice to advise or suggest it. READ MORE
Acupuncture helps the body operate at its optimum efficiency. It may be that your sister is putting her energy towards other things rather than conceiving - whether on a physical, mental, or emotional level. Acupuncture can help re-distribute that energy and build her resources to conceive. That does not mean it's a magic bullet. It will just put her in the best shape possible for nature to take its course. READ MORE
Acupuncture can help the body absorb and use what's put into it more efficiently. A practitioner may also prescribe herbs to help in this process as well as giving some lifestyle and dietary coaching advice. READ MORE
Yes, it can. I see a lot of people with sleep disturbances in my practice. There are many causes and Chinese Medicine's individualized approach will help with what is specifically causing yours. A practitioner may also prescribe herbs and some dietary or lifestyle changes to get you back to sleeping well. You'll be surprised how many other symptoms will resolve once you're getting deep, satisfying sleep. READ MORE
Yes, it can. She may also need to take an herbal formula as well. READ MORE
It depends on what is going on. I generally tell new patients to expect at least 5-6 weekly treatments. Then we will begin to space things out. We may even space them out sooner. Everyone responds differently. My goal is always to give my patients enough tools to look after themselves so that they are coming to see me seasonally or when something big hits. That being said, I do have some that need monthly support and if it's an acute issue, a treatment or two may resolve it. Everyone is individual. READ MORE
The sensations vary. There may be a small pinch or a slight ache. Generally, there is more sensation the closer the points are to the fingers and toes and less if they are closer to the center of the body. Because of how tiny they are (about the size of 2 human hairs) and because their points are tapered like a pencil lead, not cut diagonally like a hypodermic, beyond the initial insertion, there is a small, gentle spreading of the tissue as they go in. Regardless, it is less sensation than one might feel if they accidentally prick their finger with a straight pin. READ MORE
No. What is true is that people with high blood pressure should be sure to take their meds regularly, let their acupuncturist know that they are on them and let their western doc know that they are getting acupuncture. Acupuncture can help regulate both blood pressure and blood sugar as it brings the body more back into balance. As a result, it is possible that you may need less medication. So, be sure to monitor your blood pressure while you're in treatment. READ MORE
Yes and your schedule is working against you. That being said, acupuncture and herbs can help you sleep as well as possible given your situation. READ MORE
I often tell my patients that acupuncture reminds us of what is really going on. People who tend to push through and go until they crash will come in pumped on adrenaline and leave aware of how tired they actually are. Conversely, those who are stuck, frustrated and can't get motivated, may leave feeling energized and ready go after treatment. READ MORE
Yes. Acupuncture helps the body operate at its fullest potential - including digestion and other physiological systems. It can also address any emotional or mental factors that may be contributing. READ MORE
Chinese Medicine is an entire medical system unto itself. It can address many conditions on its own and it also works well with other modalities. Treatment combinations are as individual as people are. READ MORE
Acupuncture can help the body process and use western meds better and may result in your needing lower doses of them. You should be in contact with your western doc to monitor your blood pressure and make any adjustments as your go along. READ MORE
Yes. Acupuncture can help regulate the bodies systems and enable them to do their best work. This includes digestion. READ MORE
Acupuncture can help and it is likely that a practitioner will also prescribe herbs to help as well. A detailed assessment would allow for a more thorough answer. READ MORE
A chronic condition such as a kidney disorder is not a "one walk dog" as one of my mentors says. Ongoing support with acupuncture could help her energy level and potentially slow the disease progression. READ MORE
I am having a lot of stress due to menopause and I am unable to sleep soundly. Should I go for acupuncture treatment?
Yes. We are not raised culturally to listen to our bodies growing up and when middle age hits, we start seeing the results from ignoring them. Menopause does not have to be torturous. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help tremendously. READ MORE
It is not a solution in and of itself. A good practitioner should be coaching you in ways to look after yourself and support your own healing. Any treatment should be viewed as a team effort between the practitioner and the patient to affect long lasting change. READ MORE
Yes. The causes of nausea vary. Acupuncture, and possibly herbs, can address causes on the physical, emotional, and mental levels simultaneously. READ MORE
I see a lot of patients with depression in my practice. Acupuncture can definitely help your mom live more fully. READ MORE
Acupuncture and possibly Chinese herbs could help clear your body of the heat toxins from the radiation. This could allow for more movement and less pain and burning sensation. As you know, everyone responds differently to any kind of treatment (western, eastern, home remedy). Having said that, I do believe that Chinese Medicine has much to offer that could help you.
