Why Acupuncture Works, Your Endocrine System

What really controls your body? Most people will say your nervous system. While the nervous system is integral to the control and functioning of your body, the endocrine system (which controls hormones) has as much, if not more, to do with how your body functions. The endocrine system is vital to regulating everything from reproduction, digestion, weight, metabolism, mood, immunity even sleep! It is almost easier to list the things the endocrine system does not regulate. So, wouldn’t it be great if you could influence the endocrine system, especially if you are having some sort of health issue? Well look no further! As I noted Top 5 Reasons Acupuncture Works, acupuncture can influence the endocrine system to produce a wide range of hormones.

Therefore, acupuncture can be so effective in treating things like infertility, weight gain, depression and anxiety, chronic illnesses and insomnia. Even pain can be influenced by the endocrine system. By utilizing specific acupuncture points, an acupuncturist can target specific systems that will induce the body to produce hormones that will affect each of these processes. There are other things that influence the endocrine system, like stress, diet and exercise. Acupuncture has been clinically proven to reduce stress hormones in the body and at Princeton Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, we can help you design a diet and exercise program from a Chinese Medical perspective that will work synergistically with your treatment.
