Can Acupuncture and a Detox Help Dry Eyes?

Acupuncture and Detoxification

What are your thoughts on liver detoxification and acupuncture helping with dry eye?

Liver detoxification means that you have a toxic liver to begin with. Figuring out what caused your toxic liver in the first place and then not doing that would be the key to liver detoxing and then you never have to liver detox. All those detox plans that you always see are helpful because people don't eat healthy. Detox plans and diets I believe you shouldn’t have to diet and you shouldn’t need to detox because you should eat that way to begin with. If you eat that healthy to begin with you never have to worry about going on any of those plans.

As far acupuncture goes, I am a huge proponent of acupuncture for all different things. Acupuncture is one of the things that helped us get pregnant. It's been shown to help with so many different things. The main thing with acupuncture that it can be great for is anxiety, depression, stress. That is one of the main reasons that I go to acupuncture, is to relieve stress. Stress is a well known cause of dry eye. The more stress you have in your life, your immune system is going to be off and it can cause your eyes to be more dry. I believe that acupuncture can absolutely help. It is not a cure all, of course, but it is definitely something to add to your regimen.

We just listened to a good podcast today. We listened to a health related podcast. It was talking about how we are constantly in this fear of everything in life. You are always scared of something. You are worried about this, and that. When your body is in this constant fight or flight mode, you are constantly releasing stress of cortisol and that is one of the reasons we could not get pregnant. Jenna was a little too stressed out and cortisol levels caused her just to fluctuate too much and what acupuncture did is even her out.

I know it sounds like that has nothing to do with dry eyes, but it actually has everything to do with it. Hormones have a ton to do with dry eyes. When your hormones are out of whack, dry eyes are more likely. Just like when your hormones are out of whack, infertility is more likely. So, acupuncture is just great at leveling out all those energies in your body. I absolutely believe in it.
