In my quest and fascination for understanding Functional Medicine, I have been reading a fantastic book called “The Mood Cure” by Julia Ross.Today when reading about nourishing the Adrenal Glands, I read the following and was inspired to share as I have seen great results come from using acupuncture and herbs to treat fatigue & low spirits.Acupuncture Supports Adrenal Fatigue
“Acupuncturists have been treating the adrenal glands for thousands of years. Get acupuncture from a practitioner who uses saliva testing and knows Chinese herbs. These professionals can also measure adrenal function through your pulses and treat you with acupuncture, herbs and diet, lifestyle. Not only are the adrenal glands directly supported through acupuncture, but acupuncture is famous for its ability to raise endorphin levels and we know that these pleasure-producing endorphins are depleted by stress and are needed to help regulate cortisol.”
The Pulse Reveals
“Acupuncturists call the pulse that registers the vitality of your adrenal glands your kidney meridian. If your burnout is severe, your pulse will be very weak or unsteady, in which case you should consider being treated with needles and herbs.”
AMAZING testing, which you can do at home, gives us the levels of your stress hormone output at 4 times of day. We can also test hormone levels to assure these are thriving. From this information, we set up a plan to get your adrenals and hormones back on track so you can have more energy and feel better.Thanks for this boost of support in the book the Mood Cure by Julia Ross.
