Question from a reader: I’m thinking of getting acupuncture for anxiety and nerve damage. I have severe chronic anxiety 24/7 with dizziness (constant when walking). I have nerve damage in left inner ear. Can acupuncture help me?
Answer: Acupuncture is very effective at treating anxiety, though I often also recommend changes in diet and nutritional supplements for this. I have also had success in treating symptoms that result from nerve damage, so I think it is possible acupuncture can help with that as well. While there is no guarantee that any modality will work for everyone, I think it is worth it to do a course of treatment and see how it works for you.
