Help comes with the needles.....
Effectivness
Some of the problems were resolved using series of acupuncture treatments only, but more complicated and chronic cases were supported by herbal therapy.

It is important to understand that acupuncture and herbs don’t make miracles. It is just natural, drug-free medicine without side effects. In ancient China, the acupuncture and TCM doctors were paid for the visits as long as the family members stayed healthy. Modern world is too busy now to understand importance of preventive care and turns to natural medicine at the stage when painkillers stopped working or caused side effects. Perfectly healthy person does not exist in this world so everyone should treat his or her health with a long-term plan. TCM diagnosis allows recognizing health imbalance at early stage when even most serious problems are curable.
