Everyone experiences a bad mood from time to time. However, if frustration is getting the best of you on a daily basis, and you are short-tempered, crabby, or overly sensitive to stimulus, it is important to pay attention; irritability is a sign that ‘something is wrong‘ and it should not be ignored. Like the canary-in-the-coal-mine, irritability is signaling that something is out of balance and needs attention before it becomes a bigger problem.
Stress, insomnia, hormonal imbalances, side effects from food or medications are common triggers for irritability. Your acupuncturist can help to uncover the underlying causes, whether they are physical, environmental, or psychological. Whatever sparks irritability, if left untreated, it can progress into more serious conditions such as anxiety and depression.
The role of acupuncture is to investigate the underlying cause of irritability. It then, seeks to restore the imbalances that are creating unstable moods. Acupuncture treatments help reduce stress and supports a greater sense of well-being. If you are feeling out-of-sorts and want a safe, natural, and drug free method to treat irritability, acupuncture is an excellent option.
