Type-2 Diabetes is strikingly common in the US, and is a direct result of insulin imbalance. Insulin is a hormone found in the body, and when a person is diabetic the body becomes unable to properly regulate insulin on its own. This hormonal imbalance can lead to neuropathy, deterioration of eyesight and kidney failure. Although there is no known cure to diabetes, acupuncture has been proven to have a positive impact on many of the symptoms that diabetes presents.

Acupuncture has been incredibly impactful upon the symptoms of neuropathy (nerve damage). By helping to regulate blood circulation and re-balancing the bodies Qi Energy, acupuncture can help to restore feeling and sensation over time. Patients with neuropathy are often shocked by how much feeling can be regained through consistent acupuncture.

Regulating Insulin

Acupuncture has been proven to reduce blood glucose levels, which can aid with the prevention of Type-2 Diabetes. Acupuncture has also been proven to help regulate the hormones in the body, and insulin is one of those hormones!

In addition to acupuncture there are many different Chinese herbs within traditional Chinese medicine practices that can come in handy while combatting failing vision. It is very common for vision to deteriorate over time, but because type-2 diabetes is known to speed up this process it is important to get ahead of it with a combination of preventative herbs and treatments.
