Sick? Sinus Infection? Pain? Why Acupuncture May Work Better than Drugs.

It does for me!

My first experience with Acupuncture was about a year and a half ago.  I’d been under a lot of stress and I wasn’t taking great care of myself so I came down with a sinus infection.  After trying a few natural therapies like a Nettie pot, sleep, etc – I went to my MD.  I’d had a low grade fever for a week and nothing seemed to be working.

He gave me an antibiotic that I was to take for a week.  Which i did and still nothing.  I still had the low grade fever and the sinus pain.  I went back because I was feeling even worse.  He prescribed me a stronger antibiotic this time for 10 days.

It just didn’t seem right so I decided to give Acupuncture a try instead.  I went to Chester County Herbs & Acupuncture and saw Margaret Sheehan. (West Chester, PA)  She was friendly and knowledgeable, explaining what she was doing and how it all worked.

A few tiny painless needles in my sinuses and an hour later I was on my way home.  I was able to breathe, the pain was about gone, and I was really relaxed!  The next morning I took my temperature and my fever was gone!  Wow, I was surprised too!

I felt better in 24 hours – naturally!  I’ll take that any day over 2 weeks of antibiotics that kill all the bacteria even the good bacteria in my body!  (If you’ve already been on antibiotics and need to replace the ‘good’ bacteria look into a quality probiotic to do this!)

Are you unfamiliar and wondering what Acupuncture is?

Acupuncture
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine sterile disposable needles into specific points on the body to improve energy, relieve stress, alleviate pain and improve function.

Oriental Medicine refers to the energy force running throughout the body as Qi (roughly pronounced Chee). Qi travels throughout the body along “Meridians” or special pathways. Energy constantly flows up and down these pathways. A person’s health is influenced by the flow of Qi in the body. If the flow of Qi is insufficient, unbalanced or interrupted, illness may occur. Acupuncture is used to restore balance to the Qi and to promote healing.

Acupuncture points are specific locations where the Meridians come to the surface of the skin, and are easily accessible by “needling,” Acupuncture needles are disposible. They are used once and disgarded in accordance with medical biohazard regulations and guidlines. Moxibustion and Acupressure are completely non-invasive treatments based on Meridian theory that are often used as complementary treatments to Acupuncture.

My treatments have alleviated sinus issues, pain (IE- knee, elbow, back etc), and much more!

Wouldn’t you rather feel better naturally without the side effects of antibiotics if they weren’t completely necessary?

Wouldn’t you rather boost your immune system naturally with Acupuncture?

Since then I always use Acupuncture as my first choice for treatment!  Check out Chester County Herbs & Acupuncture if you are in Pennsylvania or the surrounding area.  It is worth it!  You are worth it!

To Your Health,
