Say NO to Band Aid Therapy!

by Michelle Sauberzweig

Did you know that Acupuncture is now being used by one third of the world? For the past 3,000 years acupuncture has successfully treated billions of people for many different symptoms, conditions, injuries and diseases. Acupuncture is growing rapidly because many people are tired of ‘band aid therapy’.

Historically, medicine has always been about treating symptoms and disease. Most of us ignore our bodies until they begin screaming out at us in some sort of pain, numbness, indigestion, insomnia, weakness, fatigue, or any other number of unbearable symptoms. When we can no longer stand it we make an appointment with a physician, take a drug and hope the symptoms magically go away. With the magic comes a plethora of side effects, accompanied by the same underlying problem that is now masked by the drug.

Most people are no longer looking for a band-aid to put on their problem, but rather a solution to the cause of their problem. With Acupuncture, the concern is not the symptom or the disease. Instead, we focus on determining the underlying cause of the particular problem and restoring the normal balance within the body which is often the original cause of the exacerbated symptoms.

Acupuncture is just one branch of Chinese Medicine that promotes natural healing and restores internal balance. Acupuncture is used to enhance the body’s ability to heal itself, alleviate pain, strengthen the immune system and prevent disease.
