With all the advances in Western medicine one would think that pharmaceutical corporations would provide medicines that would really cure ailments and diseases. Instead the human race is offered palliatives and life threatening therapies and drugs that often turn out to be more lethal than the condition they ostensibly are made to treat. It is the dissatisfaction and concerns of the people who are conscious enough to know of these factors that many now are turning their backs on physicians and healthcare givers who push these harmful drugs and medical procedures and opting for safer and more natural modalities for their condition. Acupuncture is one of those natural treatments that offer treatment for a wide range of diseases that truly addresses the underlying cause of the health problem as well as its symptoms.
Acupuncture is an integral part of traditional Chinese medicine in Cleveland and is thousands of years old. Some people living in the United States associate acupuncture with just merely the removal of pain and some dismiss it as just some kind of superstitious ritual that has zero medical benefit. True, acupuncture is a very good remedy for pain but it is also true that the World Health Organization itself has validated the efficacy of acupuncture of being a proven treatment for more than 30 health conditions. Even the US National Health Institute has approved the use of acupuncture for treatment of a wide spectrum of illnesses. Diseases such as digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, menstrual cramps, nausea, stress, depression, anxiety, infertility, rheumatoid arthritis among others are just some of the disorders, which acupuncture treats effectively.
To show how potent acupuncture as a treatment for various kinds of disorders truly is, the following is a litany of diseases and disorders which acupuncture can treat. Bear in mind that this list is by no means exhaustive; it is just enough to emphasize the value to human health this wonderful ancient treatment is.
