    Acupuncture For Adrenal Fatigue And Autonomic Dysfunction Gold Coast

    Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow or “qi.” While “adrenal fatigue” is not widely accepted within conventional medicine, some people use this term to describe symptoms such as fatigue, body aches, and sleep disturbances. Acupuncture is believed to offer benefits for these symptoms by promoting relaxation, reducing stress, and potentially supporting overall well-being.

    Understanding Adrenal Fatigue and Autonomic Dysfunction

    Adrenal fatigue occurs when the adrenal glands, which produce hormones like cortisol and adrenaline that are involved in the body’s stress response, become “fatigued” due to chronic stress or overwork. This is believed to result in a range of symptoms related to fatigue and various bodily imbalances.

    Autonomic dysfunction is when we imbalance our sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Quite often, sympathetic overdrive is seen here at Haynes Acupuncture, leading to various symptoms, including sleep disturbance, sleepiness, anxiety, shortness of breath, headaches, POTS, and CFS.

    Here are some ways in which acupuncture is used to address the symptoms associated with Adrenal Fatigue And Autonomic Dysfunction:

These reviews typically evaluate the quality and consistency of available studies to determine if acupuncture has a significant impact on autonomic function.

    Here at Haynes Acupuncture Gold Coast, we are currently conducting a study on the effects of acupuncture to regulate long QT intervals, a cardiac symptom associated with autonomic dysfunction.

    Acupuncture is believed to modulate the autonomic nervous system (ANS) and help restore balance between its sympathetic and parasympathetic branches.
