Which holistic methods can help?
We offer electro-acupuncture treatment and herbs, this can often be in combination with each other. Electro-acupuncture is a form of acupuncture where a small electric current is passed through pairs of needles. This method is often painless, the patient will only feel a small tingle or vibration.
How can electro-acupuncture help regain neurological function?
Electro-acupuncture has, in various studies, shown to improve the regaining of neurological function as well as preventing pain. Nerve repair appears to be facilitated through the release of hormones involved in neurological repair but the precise mechanisms are still poorly understood at present. Having said this, not all electrical stimulation seems to be beneficial. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is now being believed to delay regeneration.
How can herbs help regain neurological function?
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient, established full body treatment approach. The different herbal treatments that can help neurological function are as diverse as the underlying causes of the disease. For instance, there are herbal mixtures which can help decongest the spine when there is too much inflammation or help improve blood supply if lack of blood is the issue, sometimes the patient may be suffering a combination of symptoms. Herbal medicine is safe, with little to no side effects, and non-invasive. This means several treatments can be used in conjunction with each other in order to get the best results, and treat patients with complex symptoms, which conventional medicine struggles to do.
