We Treat These
Neurological disorders are fairly common among people throughout the country, including those in the Orlando area. Whether you suffer from peripheral neuropathy, macular degeneration, Bell’s palsy, shingles, or other conditions related to the nervous system, we can help. Acupuncture and oriental medicine can be used to treat neurologic disorders by regenerating body cells so that healing begins within. This is a practice that focuses on discovering and treating the underlying cause of illness in the body, not simply masking symptoms with potentially dangerous medications.
Inflammation, infection, degeneration of the nerves, stroke, nutritional deficiencies, or disease can result in nerve pain which may also create sensations of burning, tingling, or numbness. Acupuncture, dietary therapy, Chinese medicine and other natural, non-invasive treatment is effective for relief from post-herpetic neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, and even in post stroke recovery.
How does acupuncture work to help those with shingles, peripheral neuropathy, and other neurological diseases or conditions? This ancient Chinese practice reduces or eliminates pain, inflammation, tingling, and other discomfort by stimulating blood flow and the release of endorphins, the body’s own “feel good” hormone. It also stimulates the brain to release natural chemicals that reduce nerve pain caused by inflammation. In essence, acupuncture is effective in balancing and normalizing the nervous system, helping reduce sensitivity to pain.
It isn’t unusual to experience anxiety, sleeplessness, or even depression when you have a neurologic disorder that leaves you in pain most days. It is difficult to go through your daily routine with a positive outlook when you don’t feel your best, and wonder whether you ever will again. The good news is that acupuncture, along with a healthy diet and herbal formulation specific to your unique needs, can help you enjoy a life that no longer revolves around pain.
