How Acupuncture Helps Decrease Inflammation in the Body (in Blaine, MN)

How Acupuncture Helps the Body Decrease Inflammation using Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Food Therapy and Herbs near Andover, MN.

What Does Acupuncture Do to Inflammation in the Body?

Acupuncture stimulates powerful anti-inflammation substances in the body by stimulating specific acupuncture points on the energy pathways called channels or meridians.

How Does Acupuncture Lower Inflammation?

Acupuncture stimulation on specific acupuncture points on specific meridian (energy pathways) communicates to the brain via the Pituitary (master) gland to release cortisol (hormone known to reduce inflammation). Once stimulated, the pituitary gland communicates to the hypothalamus in the brain to release other pain-relieving substances, such as substance-P, serotonin and endorphins…

No wonder those with Anxiety and Depression use Acupuncture.
