Sweaty And Hot

Sweaty And Hot

A thousands-year-old tenet holds that energy within the body when in balance, allows the organism to maintain health. There are factors that cause the body to become out of balance like external environmental factors, emotional imbalance, or inherited genetic response.

She did notice that her hot surges became worse when she was on her menstrual cycle. We began to treat her with acupuncture for 

the hot surges, along with the autoimmune eosinophilic esophagitis. Her youth and constitutional strength made this an easy case to treat with only a few acupuncture treatments. 

My most recent hot surge patient began acupuncture treatments two weeks ago. This 17-year-old male was
