Conditions Treated

The Body is an Interconnected Network

Because everything in the body is connected in some way, we are able to successfully treat a wide variety of seemingly unrelated conditions. Below reflects a partial list of conditions treated at 1000 Folded Cranes Acupuncture and Family Health Clinic.

Digestive Illnesses

Dr. Fred Ragsdale - Digestive IssuesThe digestive system is a sensitive organ. Proper digestion requires time and relaxation. Unfortunately, many of us are eating in hurried situations with stressful schedules. These patterns combined with improper food choices, overeating and sitting for long period of time, are leading to many digestive disorders; including heartburn, constipation, diarrhea, as well as more complicated diseases like Ulcerative Colitis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Crohn’s disease.

Auto-immune Conditions

Dr. Fred Ragsdale - Autoimmune DisordersAcupuncture’s healing and chemical-triggering functions works to stimulate natural processes including immune response. Recent studies indicate favorable effects of acupuncture on the immune functions as early as 72 hours after the first session and continue to provide health benefit one month beyond treatments. Impaired immune functions, such as chemotaxis, phagocytosis, lymphoproliferation and NK activity, were significantly improved by acupuncture. Acupuncture also brings normal values in the body closer to healthy levels, providing a regulatory effect on the immune system.
