With all of the advancements in modern medicine, people often forget or ignore the benefits of acupuncture. 


Acupuncture is one of only a few health care options that has a history extending back before 10,000 BC.  Over that time, acupuncture has helped millions of people recover from hundreds of sicknesses and heal in a non-invasive, natural way.  In fact, the World Health Organization recently released a document describing the many benefits of acupuncture, revealing that this approach to health care has been proven to help with over 28 conditions. 


With the overwhelming success of acupuncture, Anthony Medical & Chiropractic Center in Temple and Killeen have achieved tremendous success with people choosing this health care option.


Why Acupuncture?

While many health care professionals resort to chemical prescription drugs and surgery to treat the symptoms, acupuncturists focus on restoring the flow of vital substances and helping the body to heal naturally.  Of the chronic problems we face with our health, there are essentially three underlying causes. The first is emotional stress. Stress can create imbalance at several levels in our bodies including our hormones and neurotransmitters which impacts our endocrine and nervous systems. This can impact any organ system or muscle group in our bodies. The second problem is trauma. Traumas occur throughout our life and the effect of them accumulates with time. If the healing from a trauma is interrupted, complete healing might never occur causing a chronic problem. The third problem is toxicity. Toxicity leads to malfunction of our bodies which robs us of our health. With repeated exposure to stress, trauma and toxins, it is easy to understand how our bodies natural state becomes disrupted.
