Autoimmune diseases occur when your immune system starts producing antibodies that attack your own cells, tissues and organs. There are over 80 recognized autoimmune diseases among which are rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, celiac, multiple sclerosis and lupus. Autoimmune diseases are one of the most prevalent disease categories in the U.S., affecting about 50 million Americans. It means one in five people suffers from autoimmune disease in the U.S. Western Medicine usually incorporates corticosteroids and immunosuppressants to address acute flare-ups and control the symptoms. While these drugs are very effective in bringing immediate relief, in the long run they cause susceptibility to infections and damage the liver and kidneys. Chinese Medicine offers multiple tools to balance the body and restore damaged tissues and organs. Just by regulating their diet, many of our patients report 80% relief from symptoms. Living with autoimmune conditions can be very difficult but with the help of Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Cupping and Guasha, we can greatly improve our patients’ quality of life.
