Can acupuncture help chronic inflammation?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that involves the insertion of fine needles into the skin at specific points in the body. It is often used as a complementary therapy to manage chronic inflammation, and many people find it an effective treatment option.

As one of the main modalities in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), acupuncture can be important in managing chronic inflammation as it offers the following benefits:

  • Reducing Inflammation: In this Harvard Medical article, scientists have found the neural pathways that can be activated by acupuncture to modulate systemic inflammation.
  • Balancing the Immune System: Acupuncture can help balance the immune system, reducing the overactivity that leads to chronic inflammation.
  • Improving Blood Flow: Acupuncture can improve blood flow to the affected area, providing more nutrients and oxygen at targeted points, which helps promote healing.
  • Regulating Hormones: Acupuncture can help regulate the hormones involved in inflammation, such as cortisol and adrenaline. By regulating these hormones, acupuncture can help reduce inflammation and promote healing.
  • Reducing Stress: Chronic stress can lead to chronic inflammation. Acupuncture can help reduce stress by activating the parasympathetic nervous system, which helps to calm the body and reduce inflammation.

Overall, acupuncture can be an important tool in managing chronic inflammation. It is a non-invasive, low-risk treatment option that can relieve many people suffering from chronic diseases.
