Can acupuncture help heal ear infections?
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine are extremely successful in the treatment of both chronic and acute cases of otitis media or middle ear infections.
Herbal Medicine has antimicrobial properties and may be used to reduce swelling and inflammation whether they are applied topically or taken internally.
- Reduce pain and inflammation
- Assist with drainage of fluid in the ear
- Mobilize your immune system to fight back and overcome the infection
Your acupuncturist will have to look at the the specific signs and symptoms of your condition as well as the state of your overall health to determine if Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can help you. Each case is unique and it would be difficult to determine your Chinese medical diagnosis or treatment plan without a full assessment. Please contact several licensed acupuncturists in your area for a consultation to find the best practitioner for you.
