Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in the joints. It can cause pain, stiffness, swelling, and fatigue. There is no cure for RA, but there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) treatment that has been used for centuries to treat a variety of conditions, including RA. Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. These points are believed to be connected to the body’s energy pathways, or meridians. When needles are inserted into these points, it is believed that they can help to balance the body’s energy and reduce inflammation.
There is some evidence that acupuncture can be effective in treating RA. A 2018 systematic review of randomized controlled trials found that acupuncture was effective in reducing pain and improving function in people with RA. The review also found that acupuncture was well-tolerated and did not have any serious side effects.
Another study, published in 2019, found that acupuncture combined with conventional RA treatment was more effective than conventional treatment alone in reducing pain and improving function.
The evidence suggests that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for RA. If you are considering acupuncture for RA, it is important to talk to your doctor first. They can help you decide if acupuncture is right for you and can recommend a qualified acupuncturist.

Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves, causing pain, numbness, tingling, and other symptoms. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including diabetes, injury, and certain medications.
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine treatment that has been shown to be effective in relieving the symptoms of neuropathy. It works by stimulating specific points on the body with needles. This helps to improve blood flow and nerve function, which can reduce pain and improve overall well-being.
There are a number of studies that have shown the effectiveness of acupuncture for neuropathy. For example, a study published in the journal Pain found that acupuncture was effective in reducing pain and improving function in people with diabetic neuropathy.
Another study, published in the journal Acupuncture in Medicine, found that acupuncture was effective in reducing pain and improving sleep quality in people with HIV-related neuropathy.
If you are suffering from neuropathy, acupuncture may be a safe and effective treatment option for you. Talk to your doctor about whether acupuncture is right for you.

Acupuncturists in the state of Maryland attend an accredited graduate school program for 3-5 years before becoming eligible to attain licensure for acupuncture. Not all acupuncturists are trained in how to treat neuropathy, however. Neuropathy is a complex condition that requires extensive additional training, which Dr. Parks has mastered over the last 4 years, with over an 85% success rate in treating neuropathy.

Ozone is also known as “Activated Oxygen” or O3. Instead of using well-known oxygen aka O2, ozone fully oxygenates any cell or tissue it comes in contact with. Ozone also kills viruses, bacteria, mold, fungus it comes in contact with. Clinically, we use ozone to fully oxygenate cells in conditions that are caused by perceived natural physical decline associated with aging, like Arthritis or Neuropathy. We also see many benefits to using ozone with autoimmune conditions, like Fibromyalgia, Epstein Barr Virus, and Long Haul Covid.

Perhaps the greatest benefit of acupuncture is that this form of medicine has been practiced for thousands of years and has been specifically used to increase circulation for centuries. At the bedrock of this medicine are the techniques used to stimulate sympathetic responses resulting in blood vessel dilation and increased blood flow. Maybe a simpler way of explaining it is to say acupuncture stimulates energy pathways in the body, thus enhancing blood flow. continue reading
