Acupuncture for Autoimmune Disease


flower image

Our bodies have an immune system that protects us from disease and infection. But if you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks itself by mistake, and you can get sick. Autoimmune Diseases can affect connective tissue in your body (the tissue which binds together body tissues and organs). Autoimmune Disease can affect many parts of your body, like your nerves, muscles, endocrine system (system that directs your body's hormones and other chemicals), and digestive system.


There are approximately 80 recognized Autoimmune Diseases. Some of the more common autoimmune conditions that acupuncture can treat are


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Interstitial Cystitis
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Alopecia Areata
Celiac Disease
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Crohn's Disease
Fibromyalgia Syndrome
Grave's Disease (overactive thyroid)
Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (underactive thyroid)
Multiple Sclerosis
Raynaud's Disease
Sjogren's Syndrome/Xerophthalmia (salivary glands, tear glands, joints)
Systemic Lupus Erythmatosus
Ulcerative Colitis

How does acupuncture work for Autoimmune Disease?

Acupuncture treats Autoimmune Diseases by reducing inflammation, alleviating pain, improving energy and vitality, and addressing the wide variety of symptoms that occur. Acupuncture reduces the damage of the membranes, tissues, and organs, caused by an overactive immune response. It treats the root of the disease by putting the immune system back into balance.
If you suffer from an autoimmune disease that is not listed above and would like to find out if acupuncture can help you, please contact Acupuncture and Chinese Medical Center in West Bloomfield, Michigan at (248) 325-9552; Ann Arbor, Michigan at (734) 996-0888.

Course of treatment

There are 10-15 acupuncture sessions in one course of treatment. Treatment frequency depends on individual condition. Chinese herbs work synergistically with acupuncture.
