Acupuncture Efficacy PDF Print E-mail
With it's 10,000-year history and successful use by billions of people, we hardly need to make a case that acupuncture and Oriental medicine work! The largest population on the planet turns to these evolved holistic healing arts first when symptoms develop. They integrate well with western medicine, because western medicine is best used when symptoms are severe and the situation is dire. It is truly heroic and powerful medicine. Asian medicine is healthier, natural and gentler on the body. It is best used to prevent illness, cultivate holistic wellness, and nourish the destiny. It is still very effective, even late in the game when the health is very compromised, but requires, especially at that point, that the patient harness their own will in the cultivation of their holistic health. This is perhaps the entire point. Western medicine treats the patient without requiring the patient to make make fundamental changes which eliminate toxic lifestyle and behavioral habits. The view of Asian medicine is that this simply prolongs the inevitable, and creates a more harmful situation in the long run. Acupuncture works. And when it is done well, it will improve the entire quality of the patient's life, far beyond the cure of presenting symptoms.
