Benefits of Acupuncture on Prevention and Management of Type ll Diabetes
By Samira Amini
Acupuncture can prevent the development of diabetes by decreasing the risk factors involved with the onset of Type ll diabetes.
Some of the risk factors include:
– Stress: Research has linked high levels of lifetime stress to an increased risk of developing type ll diabetes. Acupuncture is an effective treatment for stress relief and mental health management by sedating the nervous system and lowering blood pressure.
– Obesity: Acupuncture helps with weight loss goals by optimizing the function of the digestive system, increasing metabolism, and decreasing appetite and unhealthy cravings.
– Sleep deprivation: Sleep deprivation is a significant risk factor for Type II Diabetes. Acupuncture can increase the quality and the duration of sleep by improving the organs function, regulating hormone production, and sedating the nervous system.
