Neurological Disorders

Patients suffering with neurological disorders can support their health by combining allopathic and holistic treatments. Our goal at Isthmus Wellness is to help reduce symptoms associated with neurological disorders and improve general health. In some cases holistic medicine can help reverse early stages of neurological disorders. For others holistic medicine can help slow down or stop the progression of advanced neurological diseases. There are over 600 neurological disorders of which many may benefit from a combination of holistic therapies.

Acupuncture and Neurological Disorders

Acupuncture works directly with the nervous system to promote healing and the generation of adult stems cells. Carefully placed acupuncture needles can address the symptoms in the body and the nerve degeneration in the brain thus creating a circuit of healing in the nervous system.  The profound ability of acupuncture to restore neurological function in extreme cases such as brain trauma, spinal cord injury, and stroke is gaining attention in the West.
