The most common question I hear is ‘Can acupuncture help with_____?’ My short answer is replying that if there is a pill for it, more than likely acupuncture will be helpful and oftentimes a substitute for medication. I encourage people to do their own research. For example, a reliable source of information on this topic is the World Health Organization where they provide a list of diseases and symptoms proven to be helped by acupuncture. Because acupuncture balances the 5 major body systems (Heart, Spleen, Lung, Kidney, and Liver), there is very little acupuncture cannot treat. Acupuncture helps to guide the body to heal itself. Give it at least 8 sessions. There is only a 2% chance that acupuncture will not work for you. But never give up on obtaining your optimal health.
