    I had my first acupuncture session booked in today, but when I arrived there I realised I was experiencing die off badly from eating a whole Swede yesterday (stupid, I know)so I had a headache and felt crappy. Anyway the acupuncturist said it’s probably best to rearrange, as if I had acupuncture whilst experiencing die-off it could be too much for the body.

    So i’m wondering when I should have the acupuncture? I was put on antifungals a few months ago, had severe die off with those so i’m now having a break from them before I go on them again.. I’m eating basically buckwheat, veggies, oat bran, fish and meat and that’s about it.

    I really want to try acupuncture but I don’t want to do it at a time that won’t be beneficial, should I do it before I start the antifungals again, or way after when all the die off is gone?

    Any advice much appreciated 🙂

    I would say save your money but I’ve heard it helps for some folks. I won’t knock it because it didn’t provide me with any benefit but I find it hard to believe it can help with intestinal dysbiosis and a dysfunctional immune system.

    You should probably direct your question to your acupuncturist.

    Its likely best to use it when you are detoxing because it aids in detoxing. However I personally find that its most beneficial when you feel really crappy…it should turn that around quite quickly. Sometimes you won’t know until that day that its a particularly bad day.

    Then you can use it for specific problems. For instance, if you can’t sleep then go in and do it, and it should help you sleep for a few weeks or longer.

    If you wanted your digestion to improve and are sick of the bloating/constipation…go in for a treatment and it should improve that for weeks.

    I personally go in every 2-3 weeks for a 30 min session and thats good enough.
