Just a little thing… like being able to stimulate healing
What I learned in my medical training was how to diagnose and treat diseases, a very useful thing to learn if you are going to practice medicine! I was taught how to cure a few, and manage the rest since we don’t yet have cures for chronic illnesses.
What I learned from acupuncture and Chinese medicine was how to turn on the healing responses that are latent in the body – and when you put the two together, you can often get results that go beyond what either one can produce by itself.
If you or someone you care for has a chronic condition that has not been adequately resolved with western medicine, consider adding the health-stimulating methods of Chinese medicine to your health care and your body will tell you whether it’s a worthwhile addition within 3-6 treatments.
