Acupuncture For Chronic Stress

Chronic stress is the leading cause of chronic disease. It dysregulates the different systems in your body that create normal, healthy functioning. They turn on “bad genes” through epigenetics (just because something is genetic doesn’t mean you’ll get it; it all depends on how you take care of yourself). This stress causes your electrical circuitry to “blow a fuse”. Your body adapts by neglecting the blown pathway. 

 

Stress is defined as- 

  • Environmental toxins found in our food, air, and water, allergies

  • Nutritional- eating foods that we are unable to digest or are highly processed

  •  Mental/emotional- loss, trauma, anger, abuse, grief, depression, anxiety, mood swings, uncertainty 

  • Physical- major and minor accidents, abuse (all kinds), sports, physical repetition

  • Chemical- alcohol, drugs, caffeine, pesticides

How can acupuncture benefit my chronic stress?

Acupuncture aims to take a personalized approach to chronic stress. 

 

This is done by using needles that are inserted into your body's pressure points, which stimulate the nerves and portions of the brain. With routine acupuncture treatments, individuals can potentially train their brains and cells to perform as intended. 

 

Acupuncture is one of the best holistic alternative treatments for stress management. Not only are acupuncture treatments relaxing for most patients, but acupuncture treatments help to reduce excess cortisol, which is known to increase stress levels.
