One widespread disabling neurological condition of young adults is Multiple sclerosis (more commonly referred to as MS). Multiple Sclerosis can make life incredibly difficult depending on how severely it affects the individual’s body. MS causes the body’s communication from the brain to the muscles to be interrupted or slowed down, resulting in even the simplest of movements becoming incredibly difficult. Unfortunately, there is no cure for MS. However, there are many treatment options that can help to reduce the effects of the disease and also slow its progression. It is recommended that individuals diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis should not only use allopathic medicine to treat the disease, but also traditional medicine as well. Acupuncture therapy is a common traditional medicine utilized by many people who are diagnosed with MS.
While acupuncture therapy does not treat MS directly, it can help the body cope with many of the symptoms that are caused by the disease. The following symptoms of MS can be effectively treated through acupuncture therapy:
· Pain in the back or eyes
· Tremors in the hands or limbs
· Muscular cramping
· Difficulty walking
· Muscle spasms, paralysis, weakness, or stiffness
· Excessive urination at night
· Feeling uncomfortable tingling and burning sensations
· Dizziness, vertigo, or fatigue
· Heat intolerance
· Blurred, double, or loss of vision
· Anxiety, mood swings, or depression
· Sleep deprivation
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms as a result of MS, then you may want to consider an alternative medicine to treat the symptoms of the disease along with conventional medicine.
