Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an enormously frustrating condition, not only for its lack of an outright cure but also for the variety of debilitating symptoms it produces. Western medicine can only go so far toward minimizing those symptoms -- and that's why acupuncture remains an attractive treatment path even after thousands of years. Let's look at how you might benefit from acupuncture for multiple sclerosis in Nevada, as provided right here at Peter Lok Acupuncture.
Multiple sclerosis involves the progressive destruction of the myelin sheathing that covers nerves. This process interferes with nerve signaling, causing a wide range of neurological symptoms such as speech problems, loss of balance, and weakness, heaviness, pain or tingling in the limbs. While Western science associates it with autoimmune disease, it cannot currently offer a cure or even any specific treatment protocol. Traditional Chinese Medicine cannot cure MS either -- but it can provide safe, drug-free, highly-effective symptom management.
Acupuncture for MS focuses on correcting the imbalances commonly associated with many of MS's most notorious symptoms, most notably liver Qi stagnation, spleen Qi deficiency, and liver/kidney Yin deficiency. By needling specific combinations of acupuncture points to address these imbalances, we can relieve such symptoms as fatigue, limb weakness, depression, pain, irritability, bowel issues and blurred vision.
Acupuncture has demonstrated effectiveness against MS symptoms. One study showed that MS patients’ symptoms improved by 85 percent following the use of acupuncture, while another study showed a total improvement rate of 87 percent.
Whether you've been disappointed by the ineffectiveness of Western medicine in treating your MS or you simply want to enhance your symptom management as powerfully as possible, Peter Lok Acupuncture can help. Contact 702-732-0178 to ask our acupuncturist in Nevada about MS treatment!
