Urinary Tract Infections and Acupuncture
There are acupuncture points all over the body to treat UTIs. Acupuncture has been found to be an effective modulator of the immune system. Local acupuncture p
oints around the area of the bladder in the lower abdomen activate white blood cells—your troops to join the fight against the invading bacteria. A large part of acupuncture is about effective circulation. These white blood cells, in addition to the other immune modifiers carried within your blood, can be more effectively distributed to the problem area via acupuncture. Other acupoints will be chosen to alleviate pain and restore proper water metabolism, helping your body heals itself and restore normal urinary function.
