As we age, our immune system weakens, and we become more susceptible to various health conditions, including shingles. Shingles, or herpes zoster, is the reactivation of the virus associated with chicken pox. Its early symptoms often mimic those of the flu, with fever, headache, and sensitivity to light. However, as the condition progresses, an uncomfortable itching or tingling sensation typically develops, followed by a rash and possible sharp pains. Treatment options for this condition are available at Bennett Acupuncture and Functional Medicine in Fountain Valley and Huntington Beach.

This holistic approach ensures that each patient receives a treatment plan that addresses their specific needs and health condition.
The Benefits of Acupuncture for Shingles Relief:
Acupuncture is widely recognized for its ability to alleviate pain by triggering the release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. This makes it an excellent option for managing the often excruciating pain associated with shingles. Additionally, acupuncture can enhance immune system function, support nerve function, and reduce stress and anxiety levels. These benefits all contribute to the body’s ability to heal and recover from shingles.
When to Seek Professional Help for Shingles:
If you suspect you have shingles or have already been diagnosed with the condition, it is essential to consult with a MD. They can provide a comprehensive treatment plan that may include antiviral medications, pain relievers, and acupuncture.
