The Truth About Bell's Palsy

The Truth About Bell's Palsy

Bell's Palsy can develop suddenly causing one side of the face to droop and lose function, such as difficulty with closing the eyelid and chewing food on the affected side.  This condition affects the function of the 7th Cranial Nerve.  Without proper and immediate treatment, this condition can persist for the rest of a person's life.  Many people, including doctors, are not aware of the efficacy of acupuncture therapy in the early stage of Bell's Palsy. 

In Chinese Medicine, we believe that Bell's Palsy is caused by a pathogen known as the Cold pathogen, and accompanied with severe stress, the immune system is susceptible to the entry of this pathogen.  Some patients report they experience headaches or achiness in the neck or back of the head before the onset of Bell's Palsy.

With acupuncture therapy, I have seen immediate and great results in restoring muscle function and elasticity of the skin within two weeks of treatments.  

Next time when you see a friend or family member with this condition, don't hesitate to refer him/her to our office right away!

TMJ Disorder

TMJ Disorder

"Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) is a jaw joint that can be commonly affected by excessive clenching and stress.  Thin and fine acupuncture needles can fit perfectly and treat the affected muscle without pain.  Majority of my patients will start seeing results within a few treatment sessions.  We need to use our jaw to properly chew foods for good digestion, so without a proper working jaw, one can develop digestive issues as well.  Also, prolonged TMJ pain can cause ear and neck issues, such as tinnitus and neck pain.  Sometimes a visit to the dentist chair can cause TMJ pain from holding your mouth open for a prolonged period of time.  I would suggest getting acupuncture before and after a dental appointment to help reduce anxiety going to the dentist and relax the jaw muscles after the dental procedure.  It's time to try acupuncture and alleviate your jaw pain now." -Mei Lin Luo Maunakea

Infertility

Infertility

"The most fertile period of time for women is between the ages of 24 to 35.  In this modern time, most women have to work and are choosing to establish a career before starting her own family.  In addition, prevalent use of birth control and IUD have controlled most women's lives and their bodies.  With these modern changes, may women are encountering difficulty with fertility and getting pregnant.  Acupuncture is a safe and natural way to bring balance to the endocrine system (hormonal balance) and encourages the body to regulate itself naturally again.  This approach can be used on both men and women.  Some couples choose to use western methods, such as intrauterine insemination (IUI) or in vitro fertilization (IVF), and research have shown that acupuncture increases the success rate of IUI and IVF treatment by 30%.  Acupuncture can be used alone or in conjunction with western methodologies.  I achieve best results with treating patients for at least 1-3 months prior to starting any western procedures.  No words can describe the gratitude I have to be a part of a couple's journey of starting a family.  Have you considered using acupuncture to improve your fertility?" -Mei Lin Luo Maunakea
