If you have never experienced mental illness, bouts of depression or anxiety can be all too easily dismissed as someone’s bad day. But for those individuals suffering from anxiety, insomnia, crying spells, worry, memory loss, and apathy, depression is a crippling disability.
Care Cure Acupuncture takes this condition very seriously and strives to identify the imbalance and restore emotional and mental health. To do this consultants look at the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM ) approach, which believes that the heart and the liver control mental activity. When these channels are not functioning the organs are affected by sadness and the brain is unable to co-ordinate its mental activities.
The World Health Organisation has classified acupuncture to be an effective treatment for both depression and anxiety. Acupuncture works on the underlying cause of the anxiety and stimulates the body’s self-healing code to correct the problem.
It does this by inserting small, painless, disposable needles into points, which can naturally free vital qi (energy ) and increase serotonin levels in the brain. When patients receive an acupuncture treatment, they generally experience a reduction in anxiety and insomnia as well as an improvement in energy and overall vitality. Best of all, there are no side effects from this treatment.
Chinese herbs can also be taken in the long term as a preventative.
