Auto-Immune Disorders

At our center we combine western diagnostics services (functional medicine testing of blood, saliva, and urine specimens)

Eastern medical services (acupuncture, electroacupuncture, supplementation of herbs and nootropics, massage, cupping, and moxibustion) for the treatment of autoimmune conditions. The western diagnostics allow for precise treatments and tracking of results while acupuncture helps by regulating hormones, neurotransmitters, enzymes, peptides, and even the master hormones in the body- all through HPA (Hypothalamic Pituitary Adrenal) axis stimulation. Acupuncture also creates an anti-inflammatory state throughout the whole body by releasing anti inflammatory cytokines and several immune regulating prostaglandins.

These effects have shown to reduce ANA levels while also reducing the severity of the symptoms of autoimmune disorders. Certain symptoms seem to persist and be stubborn with autoimmune conditions and for that reason on top of acupuncture we have also found autoimmune conditions to be extremely responsive to the addition of LED photo bio modulation which is offered at EWWC.
