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.

How Can I Find a Qualified Acupuncture Provider for Neuropathy?
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.
If you’re suffering from chronic pain, failed surgeries, or an autoimmune condition, you’re not alone. Millions of people around the world struggle with these conditions, and they can be incredibly debilitating.
Traditional Western medicine often doesn’t offer much relief for these conditions. In some cases, surgery may be an option, but it’s not always successful. And even when surgery is successful, it often doesn’t address the underlying cause of the pain or condition.
That’s where acupuncture comes in. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine treatment that has been used for thousands of years to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, failed surgeries, and autoimmune conditions.
Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body with thin, stainless steel needles. This stimulation helps to improve the flow of qi, or vital energy, throughout the body. When the flow of qi is restored, the body is better able to heal itself and reduce pain and inflammation.
There is a growing body of scientific evidence to support the use of acupuncture for chronic pain, failed surgeries, and autoimmune conditions. For example, a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that acupuncture was effective in reducing pain and improving function in people with chronic low back pain.
Another study, published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, found that acupuncture was effective in reducing pain and improving quality of life in people with rheumatoid arthritis.
If you’re considering acupuncture for chronic pain, failed surgeries, or an autoimmune condition, it’s important to find a qualified acupuncturist. A qualified acupuncturist will have extensive training in Chinese medicine and will be able to assess your individual needs.
Acupuncture is a safe and effective treatment for chronic pain, failed surgeries, and autoimmune conditions. If you’re looking for a natural way to relieve your pain and improve your quality of life, acupuncture may be a good option for you.
Whether you’re suffering from low back pain, or neuropathy, infertility or headaches, you’ll want to find the best acupuncture clinic that suits your needs the best.
The very best way is to call and speak with the receptionist of your clinic of interest and ask them if they have experience in or specialize in your primary condition you are seeking care for. While most acupuncturists have trained extensively for 3-5 years in graduate level study acupuncture programs, and receive a Master’s degree or a Doctorate (also known as a Acupuncture Physician), it’s still best to work with an acupuncturist or clinic that has experienced success in treating your condition.
Some questions you can ask when you phone a prospective acupuncture clinic:
Has the acupuncturist treated my type of condition before?
What is the success rate of treating my condition at this clinic?
How many years of experience does the acupuncturist have?
Do you offer any additional therapies beyond acupuncture to help address my condition?
What can I expect during my first visit? (Is it just a consultation, or will I receive treatment that day?)
Most of our patients are referred by word of mouth, from former patients who have also experienced success.

She received her acupuncture doctorate from Five Branches University, and acupuncture masters from Maryland University of Integrative Health (formerly Tai Sophia). Dr. Parks has been treating Fertility patients for over 13 years and specializing in neuropathy for over 4 years, with over a 85% success rate.
