Conditions Acupuncture Can Treat

Over the course of more than 2000 years, traditional Chinese physicians identified many conditions acupuncture, herbal medicine, or diet can treat.

Chinese physicians identified, understood, and treated thyroid disorders, diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and many other conditions hundreds of years before European physicians. You can learn more about this by reading The Genius of China: 3,000 Years of Science, Discovery, and Invention by Robert Temple.

If you don't see your condition below, our Conditions A-Z page lists other disorders treatable by acupuncture, herbal medicine, or diet, and links to articles discussing the scientific support for our approach.

We require direct contact with the Earth to stay grounded and maintain health. I recommend that all of my patients spend as much time as possible properly grounded by walking barefoot on the Earth as often as possible, and using Earthing products so that you can be grounded while they sleep and work.
