Acupuncture for Epstein Barr Virus: Can It Help?

Epstein Barr virus (EBV) is a common virus that can cause a range of symptoms, including fatigue, fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph nodes. In some cases, EBV can also lead to more serious complications, such as mononucleosis or chronic fatigue syndrome.

While there is no cure for EBV, there are a number of treatments that can help to relieve symptoms and improve quality of life. One of these treatments is acupuncture.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. These points are believed to be connected to energy meridians, which are channels that flow through the body.

When needles are inserted into these points, they are thought to stimulate the flow of energy and promote healing.

How can acupuncture help with EBV?

There is some evidence to suggest that acupuncture can help to relieve symptoms of EBV. For example, one study found that acupuncture was effective in reducing fatigue and improving quality of life in people with chronic fatigue syndrome, which is a condition that can be caused by EBV.

Another study found that acupuncture was effective in reducing the severity of symptoms and the duration of illness in people with mononucleosis.

How does acupuncture work for EBV?

The exact way that acupuncture works for EBV is not fully understood. However, it is thought that acupuncture may help to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation.

Is acupuncture safe for EBV?

Acupuncture is generally considered to be safe for people with EBV. However, it is important to see a qualified acupuncturist who is experienced in treating this condition.

How many acupuncture sessions will I need?

The number of acupuncture sessions you will need will vary depending on the severity of your symptoms and your individual response to treatment. However, most people see improvement after a few sessions.

Can acupuncture be used alongside other treatments for EBV?

Yes, acupuncture can be used alongside other treatments for EBV, such as medication or lifestyle changes.

If you are considering acupuncture for EBV, talk to a qualified acupuncturist. They can help you to decide if acupuncture is right for you and answer any questions you have.

Acupuncture for Fertility: What You Need to Know

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) practice that is helpful to boost fertility. Regardless of what part of the fertility journey you are on, whether it’s trying to conceive (TTC) naturally, or by using a fertility center and possibly pursuing IVF or IUI, Cloud 9 Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine can help. 

There is some scientific evidence to support the use of acupuncture for fertility. A study published in the journal Fertility and Sterility found that women who received acupuncture in addition to conventional fertility treatments were more likely to conceive than those who received only conventional treatments.

If you are considering acupuncture for fertility, it is important to find a qualified acupuncturist who has experience in this area. You should also be aware that acupuncture is not a cure for infertility, but it may be a helpful complementary treatment.

Here are some of the ways that acupuncture can help improve fertility:

  • Reduce stress: Stress can have a negative impact on fertility, and acupuncture is fantastic at reducing stress by promoting relaxation and balance.
  • Improve blood flow: Acupuncture helps to improve blood flow to the reproductive organs, which is essential for egg and sperm health.
  • Increase the release of hormones: Acupuncture helps to increase the release of hormones that are important for fertility, such as follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH).
  • Improve the lining of the uterus: Acupuncture helps to improve the lining of the uterus, which makes it more receptive to implantation.
