Did you know that there are more than 16 different types of tick-borne diseases here in the United States? The most common and certainly most well-known is Lyme disease.
Various symptoms of tick-borne illness include low blood pressure, liver problems, joint pain, fever, and more. This infectious disease can take a while to develop, but there is a traditional medicinal remedy that can help resolve symptoms over time: acupuncture. More specifically, Soliman Auricular Allergy Treatment or SAAT.
Are you keen to learn more? Keep reading for a quick overview of this natural treatment.
A New Form of Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) that has been around for thousands of years. It is used to address various health needs such as pain management, enhancement of the immune system, and general disease prevention.
SAAT is a powerful new form of acupuncture treatment targeted at reducing allergens. Severe inflammation within the body leads to a malfunctioning immune system. SAAT reprograms the body’s immune system to stop an allergic overreaction.
How Does Acupuncture Help?
So how does acupuncture help relieve symptoms of tick-borne illness like those from Lyme disease?
Lyme disease has three stages. Flu-like symptoms begin to appear during the first stage: chills, fatigue, and achiness. Acupuncture works by focusing on ridding the body of infection via detoxification during this stage.
However, if the disease isn’t halted in stage 1, the second stage will affect the body’s organs and blood. The nervous system, as well as the heart, can also become infected. Acupuncture works by strengthening the body’s immune system and clearing inflammation during this stage.
Your acupuncture provider will be able to determine which stage your body is currently in and treat you accordingly.
Relief for Symptoms
Excessive allergens within the body can affect the immune system, leading to inflammation. Lyme disease is no different. So how does SAAT as a form of acupuncture help?
Your acupuncturist will conduct testing to confirm a specific spot in your ear in which a needle gets inserted. The location of the needle is unique to you and will be worn for up to four weeks until the allergy has cleared.
Some allergy symptoms that SAAT has been shown to relieve include:
- Itchy mouth
- Watery eyes
- Tightness in the chest
SAAT is a single procedure used to clear your ongoing symptoms and can address multiple allergens at once.
Healing Tick-Borne Diseases with Acupuncture
Tick-borne diseases affect everything from your joints to your nervous system. Early detection is crucial for stopping the spread of the disease. Acupuncture methods help manage and treat symptoms that accompany tick-borne illnesses at any stage.
