Ii is the least of my worries, and frankly, I don't give a hoot if anyone believes or disbelieves in the effects of acupuncture, George. There is also much more than simple acupuncture going on, acupuncture being only one part of the help I'm receiving.
Is it a common strain that if we don't understand something we don't believe it? I entered accupuncture therapy one year ago on my way to the hospital and never made it there.
This year there are other things going on in terms of bad health, and a recovery is taking place along those lines too.
Fifteen years ago I had Accupuncture that made a big difference in my right leg. I could barely bend it before that, mainly lifting and swinging my right hip to get the right foot in front. During the treatments and afterwards, my gait became familiar to what you were used to watching.
There is more than just the mechanical aspects of treatment from an oriental doctor, too. As far as I'm concerned, the orientals have one leg up on us when they combine both western medicine and their own. Sometimes when one fails the other does the trick.
If you don't have faith in what you do or subject yourself to, then you might as well give up and die.
