Auto-immune diseases can be very limiting to someone’s everyday life. Most often they are also other accompanying conditions. For instance, one of my current patients here in Centennial not only has fibromyalgia, but also lupus, chronic fatigue, whole body joint pain (rheumatoid arthritis), digestion problems and the list goes on. She also receives monthly chemotherapy treatment, to which her nausea was immediately controlled after 1 visit. Even though this list may seem overwhelming, my patient has continued to note improvement after only 4 acupuncture treatments. The key is to find an acupuncturist that is familiar with treating patients that have auto-immune diseases such as I am here at Heritage Health. It will make a difference in how you feel.
