Multiple Sclerosis-MS

Reverse Effects of Multiple Sclerosis with East-West Medicine & Neurological Acupuncture

Dr. John Barrett

Treating Mutliple Sclerosis with Acupuncture and East-West Functional Medicine means state of the art treatments that take advantage of both Western Scientific Advances and the Safe, Effective, Natural, and Self-Sustaining, Functional Approach of Eastern Medicine.  Eastern Functional Medicine includes Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine and is the only medicine in the world backed by 2,000 years of Written, Empirical Clinical Evidence to treat Multiple Sclerosis.  Recent clinical trials demonstrate unprecedented results.

Multiple Sclerosis is one of the most frustrating medical conditions and can lead to poor motor function, poor ability to speak, lack of bladder control, problems with vision and more.  According to the Mayo Clinic, there is no cure for MS, there is no specific test to diagnose MS, and not much is known about the cause of MS.

Until now, the best forms of treating MS were with diet and nutrition, traditional acupuncture, herbal medicines, and homeopathy.  However most recenlty a newly developed form of neurological acupunctue is used as primary care for MS due to its unprecidented success in reversing the affects of MS, putting MS into remission, clearing lesions, and regenerating the myelin sheath on damaged nerves.

Neurological acupuncture works by inserting needles subcutaneously on the scalp to stimulate the central nervous system of the brain.  Neurological acupuncture is very specific and results can be seen after one treatment.

Because it is relatively new, not many acupuncturists have experience with neurological acupuncture.  However, during his more than 15 year tenure at Cedars Sinai Medical Center, Dr. Barrett focused on treating neurological disorders with scalp acpuncture. If you suffer from MS and would like to reverse your symptoms and put it into remission, Dr. Barrett is most qualified to help you.

Treatments may include Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Herbology, Diet & Nutrition, Exercise, and Stress Management. With 2000 years of wisdom applied, treatments are natural, safe, effective, and self-sustaining.

Patient Testimonials Treating Multiple Sclerosis

John:  “Started my acupuncture to improve my gait.  Due to MS, I would drag my right foot.  After just a few visits my walk has greatly improved.”

Charles: “I have had 12 treatments…After these treatments, all of my major symptoms of MS are gone.  My left foot…is no longer numb…Fatigue…and heat intolerance are gone!  My vision has improved, my balance has returned, and I have not had vertigo in some time. Every aspect of my life is better…Twenty years of debilitating symptoms…reduced to a memory in 6 months!…I cannot help but wonder: Why is this particuar form of acupuncture still not embraced coast to coast?” (Quoted from clinical trial published in Global Advances in Health and Medicine listed below)
