Natural Treatment for Stress Related Disorders

treating stress related disorders, anxiety, insomnia through acupuncture and chinese medicineOver 12 million Americans suffer from anxiety related and clinical depression each year. These disorders have become an increasingly serious problem for the entire society because of their interference with patients' work, school, and family life. They also contribute to the high rates of alcohol and substance abuse in the United States.

Chinese medicine has been successfully treating depression for 2,500 years and can act alone, or as an adjunct to psychotherapy, depending on severity of symptoms.

Along with treating the physical and emotional symptoms associated with anxiety and depression, this ancient medicine addresses the root biological cause of the problem. If the body’s energy becomes blocked, or weakened, the body becomes stressed and health is compromised.

There are six major patterns of depression. They usually relate to the liver, spleen and kidney. When a patient suffers from depression, the practitioner must decide which pattern(s) the patient manifests. Based on the patient’s individual diagnosis, a treatment plan will be created from our Denver / Lakewood, CO office that will bring together acupuncture, herbal medicine, dietary considerations and other alternative therapies, such as meditation, to bring the patient back into a state of emotional well-being.
