Acupuncture Relieves Hay Fever Symptoms

There is as much evidence for the effectiveness of acupuncture as there is against it. Although, as the article states, that within the last 30 years, there has been a rise in public acceptance for the thousand year old practice. Although I am personally studying oriental medicine and acupuncture, I still believe that to fully rely on this ancient practice as the cure all is, obviously, irresponsible. There needs to be an emergence of western and eastern medicine, but with the way America paints the Chinese in today's media, it may not take place anytime soon (hopefully not). If anyone has questions or just want to talk to an Oriental Medical Doctor, these guys are super helpful and they will take the time to answer your questions. http://wongu.org  (Feb 20, 2013 | post #1)

Kaufman: Treating osteoarthritis with acupuncture

Many Americans have a certain view of Western medicine - that Doctors are NOT equipped to cure their patients. Instead, they simply focus on temporary treatments. Because of this, it is a great time (as a society and as students) to explore alternative institutions of medicine such as Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture I am thinking about becoming a student at Wongu University of OM and Acupuncture School (http://wongu.org/ site/acupuncture/) but the only thing that stops me is how Americans view the field. Basically, since older Asian immigrants are more than likely the primary patient base, after they are gone, will I be able to make a living practicing this amazing art and science? Even to this day there is still a fantastical Disney-like magic associated with Oriental Medicine and acupuncture, but I have to say that I have seen (and experienced) it's effectiveness first hand. For it to help treat osteoarthritis is awesome, because the more publicity it gets, the more the Western and Eastern Medical fields can fuse (which will provide us average Joes with more medical options and I, with an opportunity to make a living treating patients in OM). Oriental Medicine may not be the end all be all "cure," but there are some benefits and because of this, it should be taken seriously.  (Feb 14, 2013 | post #1)
