New Acupuncture Treatment for Eye Conditions Offered at Natures Balance

Crystal Lake, IL (PRWEB) January 07, 2015

Janine Jozwiak, of Nature’s Balance Acupuncture in Crystal Lake IL, is now offering Boel Acunova Acupuncture Treatments for many common eye ailments. Jozwiak is now one of the few American practitioners who use the method, which was developed by John Boel of Denmark. This treatment has been used on over 8000 eye patients and boasts a success rate over 70%.

The Boel Acunova Acupuncture Treatments involve eye acupuncture points in the hands and feet that are not associated with any other acupuncture system. Two additional points used are located in the eyebrows, which, studies show, increase blood circulation to the retina in the eye. The Acunova program involves a minimum of 10 days of treatments over a two-week period, and each treatment lasts about one hour. Herbs and supplements, along with a recommended diet and exercise regimen, may be included as part of the treatment.

According to Jozwiak, “Many vision conditions respond to treatment with acupuncture. Treatment is focused on identifying the root cause affecting your vision and improving these underlying conditions. The goal is to improve vision, slow the progress of your condition, and maintain eye health.” Among the conditions which may be effectively treated are Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Glaucoma, Stargardt’s Disease, Diabetic Retinopathy, and others.

A vision test is performed at the beginning of treatment to assess current vision, and another is done after the initial round of treatments. By comparing the two tests, it can not only be determined if the patient is a responder or a non-responder, but the efficacy of the treatment can be immediately quantified.

Once the initial course of treatment has been completed and the patient has recovered as much lost vision as possible, focus turns towards retaining the gains made through maintenance treatments. Degenerative conditions require ongoing maintenance and will only get worse if neglected. The frequency of these maintenance visits vary depending upon the patient’s specific health conditions. Most patients return for treatments more frequently during the first year, and then continue with maintenance treatments.
