10.) Eczema - Though acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help with all types of skin conditions, eczema is one of the more common complaints, and one in which people don't tend to find complete relief through standard bio-medicine.
9.) Allergies - So many of us suffer from allergies. No matter what the allergy (pets, dust, mold, foods, chemicals), it's possible for acupuncture and Chinese herbs to remind your body that it doesn't need to over react to such common substances.
8.) Asthma - It's always important to have medications on hand for asthma, but using Chinese medicine may help you to need your rescue inhaler much less frequently.
7.) Depression - Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help balance your system so that your energy can flow smoothly, allowing for your mood to be stabilized.
6.) Weight loss - Though no one thing is the key to weight loss, it is possible for Chinese medicine to help speed the process of weight loss. You'll still need to exercise and eat right (I know, I know, that's no fun!), but if you keep up the good habits, acupuncture can help you see your hard work sooner!
5.) Anxiety - Chinese medicine can help slow the mind and allow you to be able to relax, feel calmer and more at peace.
4.) Sleep Problems - Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help all kinds of sleep problems. You'll fall asleep easier, you'll stay asleep, and you'll wake feeling rested without any of that foggy feeling or drowsiness often associated with sleep medications.
3.) Headaches - Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can help with many different types of headaches. If you suffer from muscle tension headaches, your acupuncturist can get your muscles to relax. If you suffer from hormonal headaches (often associated with a certain time in a woman's menstrual cycle), it's possible to help balance your hormones.
2.) Menstrual Complaints - Some common complaints include: a lack of a period, heavy periods, cramping, PMS, infertility or irregular menstruation. Chinese medicine can help with all of these complaints!
1.) Menopausal Symptoms - Menopausal symptoms can be extremely uncomfortable, but conventional treatments often come with risks (some bigger than others!) Chinese medicine can help your body adjust to this natural change and decrease your symptoms!
So, while acupuncture and herbs are GREAT for pain, remember, Chinese medicine has been used for thousands of years as a complete health care system!
