Acupuncture is very effective with different types of arthritis treatments to relieve pain. When the needles are inserted in the body it promotes blood circulation in the local area, helping with the flow of energy and relaxing muscles. In the meantime, the body starts to release endorphins, norepinephrine, and enkephalin, our body’s natural painkillers. Chinese herbs are also effective for arthritis treatments.

Diet change to a more plant based, more fresh vegetables and fruits, less processed foods, less sugar, less diary profits, less spicy or deep fried foods, will assist the patient on the relief of their symptoms since diseases can be traced back to lifestyle and diet choices.
