Would Acupuncture Be A Safe Option For My Adrenal Fatigue And Chronic Pain?

Q: I have Adrenal Fatigue and chronic pain. I don’t want to use any medicine if I can avoid it. Would acupuncture be safe to try?

A: Pain or stiffness is a signal from the body that something is wrong. It is one of the few ways the body knows to communicate with us. Taking pain medication can dull this communication channel, and as a result, you may not hear the body’s signal, thus likely to overdo things, causing more damage, and not even know it. I rather you pay more attention to your body and see a doctor as needed for your ultimate benefit. Acupuncture can increase endorphins and relief pain. Usually this is a short term of benefit, but unless you address the root problem, pain generally returns. Those with AFS faces an additional risk in that acupuncture can open the meridian flow too much, triggering adrenal crash. You can see that it is rather complicated.
