Acupuncture and Psychology


Acupuncture and Psychology in Palm Beach Gardens

By Andrew Agoado, AP, DOM (AP3220 Florida) – Palm Beach Gardens, Florida – The popularity of acupuncture as treatment for almost all illnesses goes back millennia. This ancient Chinese treatment, along with Chinese herbal medicine, has been proven to effectively treat psychological issues too. This is great news for the millions of people who suffer depression, bipolar disorder, panic disorder, anxiety, OCD,  PTSD and others. Through holistic treatment provided at Palm Beach Gardens Acupuncture, our physicians can help you or your loved one achieve healing for any of these chronic symptoms. We even treat kids and young adults too.

Psychological conditions have conventionally been treated using strong drugs including SSRIs such as Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft. Patients are also given benzodiazepines, which are basically anti-anxiety drugs. The biggest problem with these drugs is that they have lots of undesirable side effects. To add to that, such drugs cannot really fix the problem. Rather, they only mask the symptoms, making a person depended on them for a long time. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine, on the other hand, deal with the problem holistically, getting to the root and alleviating the suffering for good. Numerous patients that have undergone the treatment at our facility have ended up reducing or eliminating conventional meds, and ultimately feeling like themselves again. We are confident that we can help you too.

To successfully address your anxiety and depression, it’s imperative to get to the root cause. That’s what our holistic treatment is designed to do. If you are currently simply masking the symptoms, things will only get worse, and you end up suffering adverse effects from meds if you choose that route.

We work on the premise that a patient needs to be treated as a whole. As you already know, your body is made up of many different parts that depend on each other to function well. When one or more of these parts is affected, the rest of the body suffers too. To bring the body back to homeostasis, the imbalance must be dwelt with. This is what acupuncture is all about.

Some of the patients that have been successfully treated at our facility had such conditions as:

  1. Bipolar Disorder
  2. Generalized Anxiety and Panic Disorder
  3. Depression, including Seasonal Affective Disorder
  4. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – ADHD
  5. Chronic stress
  6. OCD
  7. PTSD
  8. Chronic insomnia
  9. Addictions

There’s hope for everyone with any psychological condition according to the tenets of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and proper nutritional guidance, our licensed team of acupuncturists can help you get back to your normal life. Our consultations are always free so give us a call today!
