I came across this article in Prevention magazine. While I am happy to see people being informed on some of the benefits of acupuncture, I must admit I have a bad attitude toward articles of the nature. Its like, "Oh boy, the latest 'scientific research' has found acupuncture may have some benefits! I guess it really is a legitimate medicine! Who knew?!?" Well, I am so glad that Western science is now graciously bestowing "legitimacy" to Oriental Medicine. Maybe now acupuncture could start be used as a primary form of health care for millions of people. Oh, wait...that already happened... like 4000 years ago.
Anyway, here are some "science-based" benefits of acupuncture. Apparently all the other benefits are not "proven" at this time. I guess thousands of years of results has simply been a whole lot of lucky coincidences. Whatever... I'm just so thankful acupuncture is now being validated by science because I am starting to feel that I just might not be a total quack. Up till now, I haven't been entirely sure.
Yes, I recognize I may possibly have a slightly bad attitude... Maybe I'm just jealous not all of my clients look this amazing happy when I work with them. :)
