Dr. Kathy here! The clinic has been reminding me this week, just how many of us suffer actual physical illness from stress. Stress puts everything out of balance which is a prescription for trouble within the body. So how can Acupuncture help? I have listened to many patients remark about the peaceful feeling they get as a benefit of being treated with needles and herbal formulas. There is something to that! In a 2017 science daily article, stress was blamed for organ dysfunction in the stomach causing neuro-centers of the brain to misfire and possibly cause fatal Heart failure.
This is just one of many studies seeing a significant relationship between stress and organs.
