Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most common medical procedures in the world. The Chinese have been using acupuncture for a remedy for sweating for over 2000 years. For people who sweat excessively acupuncture may be the answer to their sweating problem.
Many people have had success with acupuncture treatments as a natural remedy for excessive sweating. Acupuncture offers an alternative treatment that does not involve exposure to harsh chemicals found in antiperspirants, prescription drugs or surgery.
Acupuncture is an effective treatment for excessive sweating because each person is evaluated prior to treatment. The acupuncturist then applies needles to nerve points that address the specific problem of excessive sweating.
Acupuncture can also treat other problems associated with excessive sweating such as stress and anxiety. When people experience stress or anxiety it can trigger excessive sweating, in turn the excessive sweating causes stress and anxiety and the cycle can go on and on. When used properly acupuncture can help restore the body’s energy and balance thus reducing the stress and anxiety that can lead to excessive sweating.
In 1996 The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved acupuncture as a natural treatment for sweating and other health conditions. The FDA requires that sterile, single use, non-toxic needles be used. Although millions of people have had acupuncture treatments there have only been a few cases of complications reported to the FDA.
The most commonly used acupuncture treatment in the United States consists of penetrating the skin with thin, solid, metal needles that are either manipulated by the hands or by electric stimulation.
Not all people respond to treatments in the same way. If you are not satisfied with the results of your acupuncture treatments for excessive sweating there are other non-intrusive natural treatments for sweating. Some people prefer a natural homemade baking soda deodorant while others choose to wear sweat shields to absorb perspiration and protect clothing.
