Denver Acupuncture Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment: How It Works
Acupuncture is the best rheumatoid arthritis treatment available. Why? Because it helps reduce flares, reduce inflammation in the joints, and slows down the movement of pain from place to place in the body. Anyone with RA knows how the pain moves from the wrist to the ankle, then to the hip and then shoulder. The Denver Acupuncture rheumatoid arthritis treatment quiet’s the condition, and with no negative side effects.
Acupuncture is perfectly designed for RA and other auto-immune conditions in that it quiets the body’s auto-immune response. In auto-immune conditions, one’s own body turns against itself in the mistaken belief that something in the body is a threat to our health. Some speculate that this misplaced response is due to the hyper-clean environment we currently live in.
In the past, humans carried a host of organisms in our intestinal tract, including parasites and worms. Our bodies managed these organisms, keeping them in check. It is now believed that by ridding our bodies of these worms, our bodies are confused. Since there are no parasites to fight, we are turning against ourselves. RA is one such result of this attack on our own body, focused on the joints.
Acupuncture helps the body reorient to the new normal, one where there are no parasites and worms in our digestive tract. The Denver Acupuncture rheumatoid arthritis treatment works at the organ level to teach, in a way, our bodies to stop attacking itself. This reduces inflammation and pain in the joints. It also addresses local areas of pain by getting the Qi (pronounced Chi) to move in the affected joints.
Where ever there is pain in the body, there is Qi that is not flowing properly. Qi is a form of energy that flows through channels all through the body. When Qi gets blocked, we feel the sensation of pain. RA causes the Qi to stagnate in the joints, resulting in pain. Acupuncture gets the Qi to move again.
Of course, the Denver Acupuncture rheumatoid arthritis treatment must treat both the root problem, teaching the body to stop attacking itself, and the branch problem, the symptom of pain at a particular joint. This holistic approach is one of the things that makes acupuncture such a superior medicine.

To my surprise the acupuncture has substantially reduce my daily pain levels. My flares are less frequent and intense, and pain does not move as quickly from place to place. The doc at Acupuncture Associates said there was indeed a connection between RA and other auto-immune diseases in the way Chinese medicine approached treatment. They said that the acupuncture slows the auto-immune response. I can actually feel that happening inside my body. It's very exciting.
So I'm taking less medications, having less pain, and am able to be more active. Acupuncture is now an important component of my wellness plan for RA. I'm very grateful to Acupuncture Associates for their continued help.
