Acupuncture for autoimmune disorders

In autoimmune disorders, instead of providing protection the body’s immune system attacks its own tissue. There are more than a hundred autoimmune disorders including diabetes (Type 1), multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, psoriasis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

In most cases, autoimmune disorders cannot be cured and treatment is aimed at controlling the condition and managing the symptoms. We offer acupuncture to help relieve pain, decrease inflammation, regulate the immune system, and improve quality of life.

Acupuncture for autoimmune disorders is an individualised treatment aimed at restoring balance in the flow of Qi (energy) through the body.

In addition to acupuncture, the individualised treatment plan may involve a combination of Chinese herbal medicine, and diet and lifestyle advice.

If you are considering acupuncture, talk to your doctor about any potential interactions with current treatments and medications.
