WHY USE AN ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE LIKE ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture promotes the restoration of normal bodily function, not just the removal
United States citizens spend ten percent of the nation's gross national product on hospital and medical care. We have more doctors and hospitals to serve our population than nearly any other country, yet the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) continually rates our population as having one of the lowest general health indexes of any industrialized nation.
Perhaps the reason that health seems to escape us rather than being our normal experience could be that we do not understand what health is and where it comes from. The WHO has adopted the following definition of health: "A state of optimum physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity."
Most people think health is having no symptoms. This is truly not the case. Symptoms are the end result of the body's inability to function properly. Currently, society's emphasis has been on the removal of symptoms rather than on creating an environment in which the body can function as close to 100% as possible.
Health can be achieved and maintained when your emphasis shifts toward creating optimum function, not simply removing symptoms.
Acupuncture Practitioners have as their major therapeutic method the restoration of normal bodily function. They do this by removing interference to the master controller of every body function, the organ system. Chinese medicine works with functional disorders by attempting to increase function to the organ or tissues involved. They do this by removing the principle cause of functional loss, interference to the flow of Qi (Energy). Meet Your Acupuncturists...
