Living with pain or discomfort can be a debilitating way of life, and seeking medicine that works only adds to the frustration. What can you do to aid your body in recovery?
Acupuncture is a safe and pain-free treatment for a number of ailments. For example, if allergies are a problem then acupuncture styles like the Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT) make seasonal allergy or alpha-gal treatment as close to a cure as you can get.
Acupuncture works by inserting fine needles into specific parts of the body. Sensory nerves under the skin are stimulated, resulting in the release of natural substances that make acupuncture so beneficial.
Derived from ancient Chinese medicine, you might be surprised when you learn all the ways acupuncture can make a difference to your overall health and well-being.
What are the benefits of regular acupuncture? Read below to find out.
1) Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT)
Allergies vary in severity and regular acupuncture treatment boosts your body’s immunity which, in turn, reduces the impact of allergies and their symptoms.
Take the Alpha-Gal allergy as an example. It occurs with contact or bites from a tick, creating potentially life-threatening allergies to red meat or products that come from mammals.
Western medicine offers no Alpha-Gal treatment, but acupuncture does. Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT) is a form of acupuncture that significantly reduces allergy health concerns with one single treatment.
One needle per allergen is inserted into the ear, and the needle is so tiny, that most people barely notice it. Yet the results are huge. Patients have reported an improvement between 80-95%.
2) Pain Relief
Pain relief is a major selling point for acupuncture. It’s believed when your Qi is blocked it causes pain. Help the Qi to flow through the body and the pain is eased.
Another way to see it is that acupuncture releases endorphins, it stimulates your blood circulation, and it relaxes your muscles, thus easing the pain.
Being specific, though, it’s a common way to reduce headaches, neck pain, lower back pain, general joint pain, and dental pain. At the same time, it can reduce inflammation.
When you’re living with chronic pain, acupuncture is there to help.
3) Increased Energy and Better Sleep
With acupuncture comes a surge in energy, yet because your body is balanced, it helps you to fall asleep. In fact, it’s shown to help people with insomnia, not only to fall asleep but to stay asleep until morning.
4) Immune System Support
Your immune system is your body’s defense against illness. You might not know but, acupuncture can help reinforce those defenses.
It stimulates your immune system by increasing the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and T-cells. Acupuncture actually boosts the immune cells for a long-lasting remedy.
5) Mind Benefits
This is another reason the release of endorphins helps. Stress can cause anxiety, it can cloud your mind, impacting mental clarity. Let’s be honest, without mental wellness, your day-to-day life is disrupted.
Acupuncture gives a sense of calm, relaxes muscles, and offers peace of mind, all of which lead to overall mental wellness.
Benefits of Regular Acupuncture Answered
The ailments treated by acupuncture are numerous. From fertility to facial elasticity, there’s a treatment for everyone when it comes to acupuncture.
Ongoing research shows that the benefits of regular acupuncture treatment will be long-term, and when a treatment like Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment (SAAT) is so impactful, acupuncture is an obvious choice.
