Acupuncture Is my Choice of Medicine
Use acupuncture not drugs or surgery
Since I was a kid growing up, I have always known about acupuncture. My first treatment dates back to1987, when health insurance companies started to raise their costs and companies started cutting full coverage. Most companies made you work 3 months before starting health coverage. I did not have health insurance during a job change, so I chose to see a chinese acupuncturist for all of my ailments.
The cost of the visit to see a chinese acupuncturist was $25.00 in 1987 and he spent minimum of one hour with each patient. I never had any side effects or pain from acupuncture. What I liked most was I was getting the root of the problem fixed.
About 3 years ago my daughter developed a side effect as a result of taking amoxicillin. The side effect did not appear until 2 weeks after completing the prescription. She got a hive like rash on her body. This lasted 3 months. I thought she ate something or touched something, never thinking that the drug manifested inside her body. I took her to a dermatologist and he could not determine what or which rash she had. The doctor was guessing."It could be this or that!" He prescribed $100.00 worth of topical cream that did nothing but cause her more irritation and it burned. After spending 2 visits at the dermo the doctor and wasting money on creams that did nothing, I decided to take her to my acupuncturist.
The acupuncturist took her pulse, read her tongue and knew IMMEDIATELY what the problem was. He told me she had an allergic reaction to the drug and it manifested itself into her blood stream. He wrote a prescription in chinese and gave it to the chinese herbalist. I then took the bags of herbs home and boiled, strained and gave the black, muddy tea to my daughter.
My daughter did not like the taste. Most westerners will not like the taste. It can be bitter and it looks like black coffee. The tea works. It is truly amazing. You never get sick or any weird side effects. When you get these kinds of results, you simply will think twice about going to your regular western doctor, who makes you wait an hour, spends 10 minutes with you, guesses what your symptoms are and sends you to a fill a prescription that can cause side effects.
Last weekend my other daughter developed a food allergy that turned into a fever and hives. I took her to see the chinese acupuncturist and he made a concoction for her. Her hive like condition disappeared with 2 cups of his special tea. The first day the tea forced it all to the surface of her skin. She was covered with hives. I reassured her that this is good. It is at its peak. The next day she drank her second cup and by the end of day the hives were 90% gone. She was so happy.
Today, I went to see the acupuncturist for tendonitis and carpal tunnel. I probably got this from the keyboard...typing away. I got treated with some needles and he gave me herbs and told me to soak my arm in epsom salt. I know this will take a several days. I much prefer this than any surgery or any kind of meds that will cause side effects.
