The combination of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can be a powerful tool for someone struggling with ongoing mood disorders. For people who don’t respond to Western prescription medications or who are very bothered by the sometimes unbearable side-effects it may be time to try an alternative approach.
As much as I encourage (and ofter require) my patients to be concurrently seeking talk therapy for mood disorders, I deeply believe that there is often a very real physical issue causing the continued emotional disturbance. Some people just have a constitution for depression or anxiety or high levels of fear. They will only make it so far with the best talk therapists in the world. Until they nourish the body and heal the physical issues, the emotions will always be unmanageable.
If you have undergone intensive talk therapy, tried numerous medications and still see unexplained recurrences of mental illness at any intensity level, acupuncture is a safe, natural remedy for drastically changing the course of your life. Acupuncture is not free of side-effects. It may increase your energy level, deepen the quality of your sleep and help you focus more clearly on your day to day tasks.
