Low Libido? Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine Has the Answer
Loss of libido is not something everybody talks about. But it’s something that many think about how to solve. So you thought acupuncture was just to relieve pain? Think again!
In ancient times, the best Chinese doctors were assigned to the Emperor. The emphasis was never just pain management but how to make him live longer and healthier. His doctors were expected to make him virile because he wanted many children, mostly sons. And his many concubines were expected to bear him children.

If you are suffering from back pain you know how much it can impact your everyday life. Simple tasks such as driving to work or taking a simple stroll through your neighborhood quickly become excruciatingly painful tasks that no one should have to deal with.
What many people don’t know is that lower back pain is often caused by pressure or strain on the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs from the lower back down through the pelvis and leg to the foot. When it is irritated it causes severe tightness in the lower back and pain through one or both of the legs.
Did I scare you?
Maybe not, but I do have a scary thought to share…

Have you ever have a pain in your butt that radiated down your leg that drove you nuts? Yep, that’s sciatic pain. It can even be difficult to get comfortable with that pain always around.
Sciatic pain is felt when there is unnecessary pressure placed on the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down through the butt and legs. The reason behind the pressure on the nerves can be due to a pulled muscle, slipped disc, degenerative spinal condition or very rarely, a tumor.
PMS. Three little letters, so much grief. Women (and men!) across the world dread the premenstrual syndrome (PMS) that can cause so many fluctuating conditions due to hormonal imbalance. Some of the more bothersome symptoms include irritability, emotional highs and lows, nervousness, soreness, depression, and depending who you talk to (usually men): borderline-insanity. To put it simply, PMS is not a pleasant situation for anyone involved. Luckily there’s some help where you may not have expected it.
Although the mortality rate of cancer patients in the United States has gradually dropped over the last 20 years, the way we deal with many aspects of cancer care has not. While treatment options such as radiation or chemotherapy have been a mainstay of treating cancer patients, the focus has never traditionally been on reducing the symptoms such as vomiting, weakness or loss of mobility that these treatments can cause. Alternative Cancer Care is a concept that has been growing more and more popular amongst the medical community and those who have had to go through the sometimes devastating effects of traditional cancer treatment. Treating side-effects with acupuncture is a safe and effective way to help rebuild strength after/during treatment.

Acupuncture is a wonderful adjunctive therapy to standard cancer treatments for its pain relief, minimization of side effects, hastening of recovery and enhancing the quality of life. Mainstream medical treatments for cancer are typically aggressive and side effects such as a lowered immune system can result. Surgery, chemotherapy and radiation can damage healthy as well as diseased tissues.
