Using Acupuncture to Treat Skin Disorders by Heather Botjer

Our skin is vital to us. As the largest organ in the human body, it has many functions that we could not live without. It maintains the body’s temperature as well as protects the external body; when you are hot, your body sweats and when you are cold, you shiver. Without this unique feature,

we would not be able to survive in multiple climates. Additionally, the skin absorbs essential vitamins such as Vitamin D.

The skin is one of the ways our body eliminates toxins. When our bodies become stressed with extra toxins from the environment, our food or medications, our skin can show sign of stress with acne, eczema, rosacea and even rashes. These types of disorders can be uncomfortable, unsightly and sometimes even dangerous to our health.

Acupuncture is a great way to treat skin disorders. It helps detoxify the body, rebalance the body’s energy and reduce inflammation. With some gentle acupuncture needles along with some mild electric stimulation, this all natural holistic method of healing can treat acne, eczema, rosacea, rashes, dry cracking skin, sores that won’t heal, bedsores and first and second-degree burns.

Acupuncture can be a great solution for anyone suffering from skin conditions and help the individual be on the road to recovery.
