Lyme’s Disease

“Do More in 2024” for Your Health & Your Future

At last, the new year is upon us. Will we live our best lives and manifest our fullest potential? What we do with all that potential, is always up to us.

One way to hone in on our resolutions, our health and wellness goals is to try something new, like acupuncture. Although acupuncture is technically anything but “new” being over 3,000 year old system of medicine originating from China, it may be a new experience for you.

Acupuncture is truly an excellent treatment approach for many ailments for several reasons. First, there are no side effects to acupuncture like there are with medications or surgery. Second, it is actually a very pleasant experience for most people, as most patients fall asleep during their session, and it is considered non-invasive. Third, it can treat multiple health concerns at the same time. Many times a patient will come in for their chronic pain, for example, and also see lasting improvements with their lifelong anxiety or insomnia, digestive issues or migraines. It even helps couples get pregnant who are struggling to start a family, or help with menopausal concerns and reproductive health.

Anything you would consider taking a pill for, you could try acupuncture.

With the New Year, many folks even use acupuncture to quit smoking, or use acupuncture to lose weight.

At Cloud 9 Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine, we take an integrative approach looking at many ways to naturally support your health and wellness, utilizing acupuncture, electro-stim, ATP Resonance BioTherapyTM, O3 Regenerative TherapyTM, and custom nutritional support.

While we specialize in complex, chronic conditions that are difficult to treat such as neuropathy, autoimmune conditions, infertility, migraines, and women’s health, we do treat many other conditions (and all ages) as well.

Acupuncture for Lyme Disease: Can It Help?

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that can be transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick. Symptoms of Lyme disease can vary depending on the stage of the infection, but they can include fever, headache, fatigue, muscle aches, and joint pain. In some cases, Lyme disease can also cause more serious complications, such as neurological problems, heart problems, and arthritis.

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for Lyme disease, but antibiotics are often prescribed to kill the bacteria. In some cases, acupuncture may also be used to help relieve the symptoms of Lyme disease.

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body. These points are believed to be connected to the body’s energy system, and stimulating them can help to improve the flow of energy and promote healing.

There is some evidence to suggest that acupuncture may be effective in helping to relieve the symptoms of Lyme disease. A 2014 study found that acupuncture was effective in reducing pain and improving sleep quality in people with Lyme disease. Another study, published in 2016, found that acupuncture was effective in reducing fatigue in people with Lyme disease.

If you are considering acupuncture for Lyme disease, it is important to talk to your doctor first. Acupuncture is not a substitute for conventional medical treatment, but it may be a helpful complementary therapy.

Here are some of the benefits of using acupuncture for Lyme disease:

  • Can help to relieve pain
  • Can improve sleep quality
  • Can reduce fatigue
  • Can improve mood
  • Can boost the immune system
  • Can help to reduce inflammation
