Acupuncture for Eczema
Acupuncture’s Wide Range of Treatment
Acupuncture is a technique of traditional Chinese medicine that originated more than 2,500 years ago. It focuses on correcting imbalances in the body and has been used to prevent and treat diseases, as well as improve general health and well-being. In 1997, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) publicized acupuncture’s effectiveness at treating a wide range of conditions. Today, acupuncture’s popularity is growing amongst Western medicine. The Gainesville, FL acupuncture specialists at Gainesville Holistic Healthcare share with you the many benefits of acupuncture and the remarkable story of a little girl’s skin condition treated through acupuncture.
What is Acupuncture Good For?
Western medicine primarily focuses on treating diseases and disorders once they arise; and much of its medicines are used to mask symptoms rather than target the root of the problem. Acupuncture, on the other hand, stimulates certain points of the body to help it heal itself and once the ailment is discovered and treated, its symptoms are soon relieved as well. Because of this, acupuncture can be used to treat a wide variety of diseases, disorders, and conditions. Modern research has shown that acupuncture can have an effect on the nervous system, immune system, digestive system, and cardiovascular system. Acupuncture can help relieve different pains from back pain to migraines, treat emotional disorders such as depression and anxiety, and improve digestive function, sleep, allergies and general well-being.
Acupuncture can even be used to treat skin conditions. A three year old girl was treated for eczema through acupuncture, a treatment not typically considered for such a condition, and experienced remarkable results. Eczema, also known as dermatitis, is a condition that causes rashes and inflammation of the skin throughout the body. The little girl’s condition covered her face and body. According to the girl’s mother they had been to different doctors, dermatologists, pediatricians and dietitians but no significant improvement had occurred. The young girl was then taken to practicing acupuncturist Ricardo Miranda and her condition quickly improved after acupuncture treatment began. The girl’s mother has stated, “since I started at Westside Acupuncture & Wellness Center, my daughter’s skin has tremendously improved. Now, my daughter looks like a normal toddler with normal skin.” Ricardo Miranda, L.Ac., believes that “biology is not destiny” and that acupuncture can reverse many conditions.
