Stress Management and Relief

Depression

 

Benefits from the Release of Endorphins through Acupuncture

 

In conventional medicine therapy,patients experiencing depression are treated with different classes of anti-depressants.While these antidepressants have the potential to alleviate many possible symptoms there are dangers associated with their long-term use. These dangers could include: water retention, dependence due to increased dosage, facial paralysis and weight gain. Peter Breggin, M.D., a Harvard trained psychiatrist, points out that drug therapy, while suppressing the symptoms of depression and other mental disorders, can also make a person chemically toxic, which will actually deepen the problem.

Professor Pierre Huard of the medical faculty of Paris, France and Dr.Ming Wong of the Medical Faculty of Rennes have found through the research that acupuncture is equivalent to the effect of antidepressants in cases of depression and its action is swift and lasting. More importantly, this treatment is without side effects.

 

Acupuncture is effective because it appears to stimulate the release of endorphins and enkephalins. These chemicals which are produced naturally by the body act as both painkillers and relaxants. People with weakened immune systems over time have the potential to become depressed, a condition referred to as “immune stress”. Acupuncture can strengthen and simultaneously desensitize, normalize and regulate the immune system. It does this by stimulating the points which relate to autoimmunity and all the meridians (energy channels) in the body.This helps to rebuild the immune system releasing antibodies and improve T-cell count.

 

People in the midst of depression often feel helpless and desperate to try anything that will provide them relief. Acupuncture offers a safe and drug-free option, as well as long term benefits. count on not just relieving the symptoms but getting to the root of the underlying cause in most cases.
