Neurology is the make up of our nervous system that drives everything within us. The command centre of the brain and the spinal cord together with the peripheral system that governs all other neural elements. Completes our system by regulating and coordinating bodily functions. Day in and day out without us even having to think about how to organise this. It just happens.
But this ecosystem of organic material is fragile. Damage to the nerves, brain, or organs can disrupt this greatly. Causing imbalance, disharmony, pain, memory loss, speech impairment, loss of motor control, headaches, stroke, seizures and involuntary movements.
Neurological conditions that benefit from Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine include;
- Bells Palsy
- Stroke Recovery
- Neuropathy (Diabetic or Non)
- Tooth pain
- Spinal nerve compression
- Nerve damage form surgery or injuries
'Nurturing neurological health unlocks the potential for a vibrant and fulfilling life'
Acupuncture has gained scientific attention for its potential therapeutic effects on various neurological disorders. By stimulating specific acupuncture points we aim to activate a complex network of neural pathways, influencing the central nervous system. Research suggests that acupuncture can influence the release of neurotransmitters, such as endorphins, serotonin, and dopamine, which play vital roles in pain management and mood regulation.
In the field of neurology, acupuncture has shown promise in managing conditions like peripheral neuropathy, migraines, and multiple sclerosis. Studies indicate that acupuncture may improve peripheral nerve function, reduce neuropathic pain, and enhance local blood flow by decreasing inflammation and increasing the expression of neurotrophic factors.
Acupuncture has also demonstrated potential in alleviating migraines by affecting pain-processing areas in the brain, modulating cortical excitability, and reducing the frequency and intensity of migraine attacks. In the case of multiple sclerosis, acupuncture has been trialed for its potential immunomodulatory effects and its ability to support remyelination processes.
Although further clinical trials are necessary to fully understand the mechanisms underlying acupuncture's effects on neurological disorders. The current evidence suggests that it can be considered as an adjunctive therapy alongside conventional treatments. Its capacity to modulate neurochemical and neurophysiological processes provides a scientific basis for its potential benefits in improving neurological function and enhancing the overall quality of life for individuals living with these conditions.
If you suffer from a neurological disorder or have a family or friend that does. Reach out to discuss treatment options and what a treatment plan would look like. As most conditions have severe symptom patterns, utilising acupuncture can be very effective in complimenting other medical procedures and medication schedules.
