By Andrew Agoado AP – Parkland, Florida – That acupuncture and Chinese medicine can effectively treat a host of physical problems has never been in doubt. And now this popular treatment is proving to be quite helpful for people with psychological issues too. That means that the millions of people who battle anxiety, panic disorder, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD and OCD can get back to their normal lives after undergoing acupuncture treatment. Currently, the acupuncture physicians at our Parkland Florida location offer a holistic treatment that’s designed to effectively reduce and oftentimes eliminate these chronic symptoms.
But how different is acupuncture from conventional treatment? Well, for a long time, psychological problems were treated using such strong drugs as SSRIs and benzodiazepines. These drugs, while only masking symptoms, also resulted in numerous unwanted side effects. Patients had to depend on these drugs for a long time too.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine, on the other hand, address the root cause of your depression or anxiety. Therefore, your pain isn’t merely lessened, but effectively eradicated. That has been the experience of countless patients that have undergone our holistic treatment program. If you have been masking the symptoms using conventional medication, you owe it to yourself to try acupuncture and Chinese medicine.
Our treatment program is based on the premise that health issues can only be cured if the patient is treated as a whole. You see, the human body has many parts that need each other to function well. If one of those parts gets affected, then the entire body is affected as well. Acupuncture tries to restore that balance and, consequently, restore the wellbeing of a person. The patient thus ends up feeling much better than they would had they focused on the sole condition causing their pain.
In the past, our physicians have successfully treated patients with such psychological issues as:
- Generalized Anxiety and Panic Disorder
- Chronic stress
- Bipolar Disorder
- Depression, including Seasonal Affective Disorder
- Holistic Addiction Treatment
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – ADHD
- Chronic insomnia
Whether you have any of these conditions or know someone who does, our doctors are always ready to help. Our treatment program is designed to help you or your loved one back to health within the shortest time possible. Call us today for free consultation. The acupuncturists of South Florida Acupuncture Associates are located in Parkland Florida.
