It can occur at any age, but it is the most common between the ages of 20 and 60; women are slightly more likely to get it than men.

What is Uveitis?
Uveitis is an inflammatory response in the eye caused by a broad range of conditions or diseases. It can cause swelling and tissue damage and lead to reduced vision or, in some more serious cases, even blindness.
The causes of the inflammation of the eye can be divided into 3 groups:
- Autoimmune diseases, where your immune system attacks the eyes, like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, sarcoidosis, ulcerative colitis, and many more.
- Infectious causes include AIDS, herpes, toxoplasmosis, tuberculosis, histoplasmosis, etc.
- Eye injury, trauma or toxins penetrating the eye.
Uveitis Alternative Treatment
Traditional Chinese Medicine uses several practices for uveitis natural treatment, bringing your body into balance or homeostasis. These include acupuncture, Chinese herbal therapy, and Chinese nutrition and lifestyle. These treatments aim to stimulate the production body’s own natural chemicals involved in pain relief, thus reducing eye inflammation, redness, and swelling.
Acupuncture for Inflammation
Treating many local acupuncture points with acupuncture, we can provide a natural cure for uveitis. The process involves the insertion of small, thin needles into specific acupoints around the eyes. The main goal is to restore the body’s balance, energy, and harmony. It balances the flow of energy or life force (Qi or Chee) that is believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body.
