Treatments of several conditions I can treat and help with Ear acupuncture includes:
Addictions of a chemical nature such as alcohol, cigarettes, weed, inhalants, illegal or recreational drugs, prescription or over the counter medications.
Treatments of Emotional states that can include depression, anxiety, anger, rage, irritability and frustration. Extreme emotions like anger and rage have been reported to have reduced in intensity after some acupuncture. Some individuals prone to have outbursts found a reduction in frequency.
Whilst I am a specialist in anger management at The Anger and Stress Management Centre, and provide courses for anger, should acupuncture be useful in this regard, I would suggest it to certain clients who are very adrenalized and lose control, having outburst and rages.
Anxiety and panic
General anxiety disorder. Feeling anxious all the time can be debilitating. This produces panic attacks, nervousness and loss of confidence. By lowering your anxiety you will find that you can function better, cope better and be able to breathe without a racing heart.
Panic attacks are associated with anxiety. They put you into states of fear and avoidance. Lots of adrenalin is released and your heart is pounding. The acupuncture treatment will help you feel calmer and less anxious.
Treatments for Insomnia or Sleeplessness. Insomnia includes not falling asleep easily, waking from sleep, not having a restful sleep and results in tiredness and fatigue. There is nothing worse than not being able to get a good night’s sleep. It catches up on you and you are always tired or exhausted.
Acupuncture can help you have a good night’s sleep. It may even make you feel sedated, without having to resort to taking sleeping pills.
ADHD and ADD in both children and adults, can be treated with acupuncture and magnets. South Africa has one of the highest rates of drugged children in the world. Let us try and get your children off of these strong brain drugs!
Bipolar disorder – manic-depressive cycles of highs and lows that really impact your day to day functioning which often requires medication to control it.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) – often you create such an anxiety and stress with this and you can drive yourself crazy (and others).
Stress and PTSD
Treatments for Stress – this can give rise to ill-health over time. There is a sense of not being able to cope, of overwhelm or helplessness, fatigue and loss of control. The ear acupuncture can help you experience a reduction in stress, anxiety and irritability as you feel more relaxed. Additionally Shelton, who is a stress counsellor at The Anger and Stress Management Centre, can help work with you to formulate a stress reduction plan.
PTSD – post traumatic stress disorder is a deep-seated stress caused by a traumatic event such as an attack, crime, car-jacking, an accident, witnessing something horrific, death and war. Ear acupuncture can help you relax and release the trauma. It is recommended that you also receive trauma counselling and even TRE (trauma releasing exercises).
Weight issues – often there is an emotional or hormonal imbalance with weight gain. A series of ear acupuncture treatments can help restore the imbalances and assist with weight reduction, in conjunction with a diet plan.
Asthma and Bronchitis – shortness of breath, wheezing, bronchial constriction. Also sinusitis and congestion.
Chest Pain – could be related to stress, heart conditions, anxiety and other conditions
Either Hypertension ( High Blood Pressure) or Hypotension ( Low Blood Pressure) – the acupuncture affects a balancing action and can help with blood pressure
Gastro- intestinal problems that can include constipation, diarrhea, cholitis, irritable bowel, bloating and even nausea.
Dizziness and Vertigo, often linked with ear conditions, could be helped with ear acupuncture treatments.
Endocrine system and hormonal imbalances eg. thyroid problems, female problems. When hormones like estrogen are out of balance (either too little or too much), it can impact your health. You could feel unwell and experience a number of symptoms. Balancing your endocrine system and detoxing it can be beneficial and make you feel well again.
Other female genito-urinary conditions like menstrual problems, fertility problems and hormonal imbalances can be helped, as can menopause and flushes. Men can be helped with low testosterone.
Imbalances in minerals, for example high or low iron. This can cause blood thickening and organ damage and acupuncture can help.
Neurological conditions like neuralgia that can cause all different types of pain that can go on for hours and hours, impacting your well-being. Neuralgia, the painful damaged nerve condition can be helped with acupuncture treatments.
Muscular conditions like spasms. A long duration spasm or muscular tension can be painful and last a long time. Often pain-killers and muscle relaxants don’t help that much. The spasm persists. Needling can release the spasm and make you feel more comfortable and in less pain.
Many more other conditions not mentioned. If you have not had much joy with other treatments, then we recommend you try ear acupuncture. It might just be the treatment that does help you.
Please remember, ear acupuncture is safe!
If it helps you, think how wonderful that would be!
Ear acupuncture will benefit and assist your health through healing, re-balancing and de-toxing.
