Pediatric Acupuncture and Ear Infections
Acupuncture and Chinese herbs are extremely effective in speeding the recovery from ear infections and preventing them from coming back by treating both the symptoms and the root cause of the condition.
Acupuncture and Digestive Issues
If your child is experiencing indigestion, irritable bowels, constipation, bloating or pain (in the stomach or intestines), acupuncture can be a tremendous resource to help them feel better now and maintaining those improvements over the long term. Acupuncture improves the body functions of digestion, absorption and metabolism. It also reduces ulcers and neutralizes excessive stomach acid. Acupuncture calms abdominal distention and helps the body balance as to reduce or completely eliminate IBS symptoms. Acupuncture even addresses overeating and sugar addictions.
Immune System Boost
Scientists have been able to determine the role acupuncture plays in boosting the body’s immune system by enhancing the production of natural killer cells, which is the primary defense mechanism against organisms that make us sick. It also acts on a complex immune building system that regulates white blood cells directly linked to the fight against infections, allergic reactions, and even autoimmune disorders. For patients who are seeking to boost their immune system to protect them from getting sick, oftentimes a multidisciplinary approach is best. Acupuncture can easily be incorporated into your conventional treatment plan, working in tandem with your physician. You do not have to wait until you are sick to benefit from the immune-boosting benefits of acupuncture. You can begin regular acupuncture visits now as part of your preventative regime to ward off colds and the flu.
