Receiving a neurological diagnosis can be quite daunting, but in Traditional Chinese Medicine a diagnosis is not the end of the road. While neurological diseases manifest frequently in the brain, the chances are high that they may actually begin somewhere else in the body. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treats the patient holistically instead of compartmentalizing the issues. This leads to a greater overall treatment, and fully customized treatment plans for each patient.

Neurological disorders cover a wide swath of health issues. Everything from

headaches, seizures, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease, and more falls under the category of neurological disorders. According to the World Health Organization, nearly 1 billion people suffer worldwide from some sort of neurological disease or disorder.

Acupuncture, Diet, and Chinese Herbal Formulas can all help to assist you in your search for better health.


Acupuncture works with the nervous system in the body to regenerate cells and promote healing. The use of specific acupuncture points can create a closed circuit between the point and the neurologic control center in the brain. By giving the body and brain the necessary tools, the two can work in conjunction to

heal the body. From a scientific perspective, acupuncture stimulates blood flow and increases cellular level oxygen while decreasing inflammation.

Plate of fruits, veggies, and fish


A healthy diet will keep the brain and the body functioning properly while reducing the risk of developing a serious neurological disorder. Even things like chronic headaches can sometimes be cured just by adjusting your diet. Nutrients like omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, vitamin B12, amino acids, and folate are all crucial when it comes to brain health. Foods like fish, avocados, hempseed, flaxseed, whole grain bread, and a variety of brightly colored fruits and vegetables are helpful as well.

Chinese Herbal Formulas

Combinations of herbs, known as formulas are used frequently in TCM. One such formula used to treat neurological disorders is Tian Wan Bu Xin Dan. This formula treats long-term brain disorders like dementia, Alzheimer’s, or Parkinson’s. The herbs in this formula stimulate the production of blood flow to the brain.

As you can see, TCM is a wonderful complementary treatment for neurological disorders. If you are struggling with a neurological condition please contact us so we
