In addition to Western Medical Management, acupuncture can be a helpful addition to help manage diabetes.
Acupuncture helps release endorphins. This helps naturally decrease pain, and stimulates the endocrine system. There is also some indication that acupuncture can help manage blood sugar levels and bring balance back to the body.
Acupuncture can increase the speed of digestion. Slowed digestion can be caused by higher blood glucose levels.
Diabetic neuropathy symptoms can be treated with acupuncture as well as prevented.
We do not suggest using acupuncture as a sole treatment or management for diabetes. It is important to manage your blood sugar not only through medication, but with exercise and food intake. Acupuncture is simply a part of the puzzle of finding your best health.
