Acupuncture is a great alternative medicine option. There are many people that have experienced the benefits of using this form of treatment for conditions that can range from sinus congestion to more complex endometriosis.
In a case where endometriosis was present, a woman had been suffering for years with the pain. It was so intense that she would often not work or even get out of bed much for about two to three days a month. Even when she was younger, each month she would miss school for the same reason. The pain was just so great. One day, a friend told her about acupuncture, and she decided that she would try it. To her astonishment, the pain went away. She went to the office once a week and also was given some Oriental herbs to take as well. It was like a miracle had occured in her life. She was able to go about each day as she wanted and was never inhibited by pain from endometriosis for as long as she continued to take the herbs and get treatment.
Her practitioner not only helped in that area of her life, but also talked to her about diet and exercise and what would work for her particular body type. Acupuncture treats the entire body, that is what makes it wonderful. It is not just treating a symptom, but the entire body as a whole. All the systems relate to each other, and looking at the whole body can quickly increase health and encourage healing.
