World Diabetes Day

It's World Diabetes Day! 

Diabetes is a serious health condition where your blood glucose level is too high. It can happen when your body doesn't produce enough insulin or the insulin it produces isn't effective. Or when your body can't produce any insulin at all. There are many different types of diabetes. 

If you have diabetes, you probably know that the condition stems from your endocrine system. These are the hormones that trigger your organs to control your sugar levels.  

Did you know that Acupuncture can help reduce some of your symptoms of Diabetes? 

Research published in the Holistic Nursing Practice journal suggested that Acupuncture can decrease the chance of developing prediabetes, a condition resulting in type 2 diabetes. A study published in the Journal of Diabetes found that electroacupuncture therapy offered promising results for people with diabetes.

The benefits of acupuncture treatment for diabetes show that Acupuncture stimulates endorphins. Endorphins are, simply put, hormones that trigger positive feelings in your body and also block feelings of pain. Acupuncture may also regulate cortisol, a hormone signalling your body to feel stress. 

The hormone reaction triggered by Acupuncture can help balance the parts of your body that cannot regulate your sugar levels on their own. Acupuncture can also help reduce symptoms of diabetic peripheral neuropathy or nerve pain/tingling. Acupuncture can do all this without the risk of harmful side effects, such as some pharmaceutical treatments.

The benefits of Acupuncture are excellent! Have questions? Want to learn more about the benefits of Acupuncture with diabetes or pre-diabetes? Please feel welcome to email me at
