ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture originated in China and has been
effectively practiced there for centuries before it was introduced to Western nations.

In the last few decades, acupuncture has been used by millions of Americans.  Both FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and NIH (National institutes of Health) recognize acupuncture as a medical therapy.  In 1997, NIH published: Acupuncture. NIH Consensus Statement Online 1997 Nov 3-5; month, day]; 15(5):1-34.  It states that, "The data in support of acupuncture are as strong as those for many accepted Western medical therapies. One of the advantages of acupuncture is that the incidence of adverse effects is substantially lower than that of many drugs or other accepted medical procedures used for the same conditions." 

Acupuncture treats many more issues than just these.
