Following is a quote from the World Health Organization on their research with Acupuncture:
“From the viewpoint of modern medicine, the principle action of acupuncture is to regulate the function of the human body and to increase its resistance by enhancing the immune system.”
The WHO went on to draw up a list of conditions that lend themselves to acupuncture treatment. These include:
- digestive health
- muscular skeletal
- neurological conditions
- eyes – ears – nose and throat problems
- skin complaints
- Genito-urinary and fertility problems
- pregnancy care
Acupuncture is also helpful in treating mental and emotional problems such as stress related illness, anxiety, insomnia, and is an effective tool in weight control.
