How Can Acupuncture Help the Effects of Stroke, Hypertension, or Diabetes

Hypertension and ischemic strokes are closely related and acupuncture can be used to lower blood pressure and aid in your efforts to avoid a stroke. High blood pressure has lifestyle and genetic causes and can be treated in a holistic manner by applying Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practices. Besides Chinese herbal remedies, acupuncture and electro-acupuncture have been used to lower people’s blood pressure. Balancing the Chi as well as the benefits of the serotonin and endorphins that acupuncture can release, can all have positive health benefits.

Acupuncture and Stroke Recovery

Recovery from a stroke involves learning to activate and use many muscle groups and relearning simple tasks that were taken for granted before the stroke from swallowing to buttoning a button. This can mean hours of rehab physical therapy and resulting muscle aches and pains. Other factors that can affect a person’s recovery are their levels of frustration and depression. Acupuncture can be used to treat muscle pains, as well as addressing emotional effects of depression and frustrations. By balancing the Chi along a person’s meridians, the life force can be rebalanced and improvement can be experienced.

Acupuncture Can Be Used to Treat Diabetes

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder where the body does not produce adequate amounts of insulin in order for the body to metabolize sugar. One side effect of diabetes is peripheral neuropathy, or nerve damage, commonly in the hands and feet. This condition can cause weakness, numbness, and/or pain. The pain is often a burning or tingling sensation. Acupuncture can be used to assist the body in insulin production as well as to treat the effects of neuropathy.

I've been seeing for the last couple of months consistently, and every ailment and pain in my body has been treated with great results. Each time, Dr Jang tells me it will take a few sessions to be better, but after the first session, I feel 99% better already! I first went to him because my teeth and gums were so sensitive (due to TMJ) that I couldn't eat and even drink water (had to drink thru a straw and concentrate of the other side of the mouth)! It was so painful that I thought the nightmare would never end. After few treatments I could eat and drink almost normally!
