Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition which causes symptoms in the lungs as well as other tissues of the body. Modern medical science continues to advance in its ability to treat this chronic health condition. It is caused by an alteration in the body's ability to process electrolytes through a type of cellular component called an ion channel.

Altered electrolyte transport within ion channels (of the exocrine glands) leads to changes in the body's production of mucus within the respiratory, digestive and reproductive tracts. This leads to blockage of mucosal ducts which can cause infections to occur. These infections lead to inflammation, which is the precursor to fibrosis. Fibrosis is a pathological change in the tissue of an organ which causes the organ to function less efficiently.

How We Can Help

Our clinic provides a high quality of care within the specialty of acupuncture and natural medicine. Treatments that we provide can help to reduce the inflammation which is related to the development of fibrosis in CF patients.

Our patients with cystic fibrosis have reported experiencing fewer infections and hospitalizations when using our service on a schedule of weekly or every other week.

Successful treatment of CF is any treatment that helps to slow the progression of disease. Our treatments have offered benefits to patients with CF complicated by lung infection, liver cirrhosis, and portal hypertension, as well as other conditions affecting multiple organs or systems.
