How can acupuncture help with regulating blood sugar?

TCM Hormonal Conditions

I heard that acupuncture can help to regulate my blood sugar level. How does acupuncture help with that?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Acupuncture helps with regulating blood sugar by balancing your body’s major organs and the balance of Yin and Yang in you. It does not directly bring the blood sugar level down like western drugs, but rather we aim to improve a person’s body constitution and regain proper functioning of the organs, and through that, the blood sugar level can be normalized.

The effects of TCM on blood sugar, whether acupuncture or herbal concoctions, aren’t immediate. In TCM, we do not use the blood glucose levels as a symptom, but rather, other symptoms you present with to assess your body’s constitution at any point of time. Thus, treatment is not focused on lowering the blood sugar levels but geared towards giving you an individualized treatment based on any deficiency or disharmony that you might possess.

Through the course of treatment, my patients have found not only their blood sugars being regulated, but also other symptoms rectified. They find themselves with better sleep quality, being more energized in the day and improved mood. Hence, many of them choose to continue with the treatment even after their blood sugar levels are normal.
