Diabetes

Diabetes mellitus (type 2) is a growing disease of epidemic portion in the United States and throughout the world. According to the statistics released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the United States population in year 2021, 29.7 million Americans were diagnosed with diabetes and 97.6 million people were diagnosed as prediabetic, which if not treated often leads to full-blown diabetes within five years. This widespread problem imposes a huge burden on the health care system and progressively erodes the productivity and quality of life for the diabetic population. 
 

The continuing decline in health among diabetics has shown that relying on medications alone, even with strict dietary control, is not sufficient. However on the optimistic end of the spectrum, clinical results have proven that diabetes can be controlled and the quality of life and health can be improved for diabetics with the integration of acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.

Diabetes diagnosis according to Chinese medicine

According to Chinese medicine principles the underlying cause of diabetes is organ deficiency, specifically relating to the lungs, spleen, stomach, and kidneys. Poor diet, sedentary lifestyle, and long-term chronic stress play a huge role in the development of diabetes as they contribute to the decline of the organs. As diabetes progresses the functions of the related organs become more deficient and degenerative with time thus unable to metabolize and control blood sugar, regardless that a person is on medications. 

 

In order to address diabetes, the health and vitality of lungs, spleen, stomach, and kidneys must be supported - diabetic medications are not doing this and thus leaving the root causes untreated. This is the reason why long-time diabetic patients are not able to control their sugar, even with multiple medications and increased dosages, the sugar continues to spike due to their weakened organs rejecting the medications. Not until they get on a regimen with acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy that the vitality of the affected organs begin to revive and the body is able to accept medications again. As a result, the sugar is brought under control.
