Acupuncture is a treatment based on Chinese medicine -- a system of healing that dates back thousands of years. At the core of Chinese medicine is the notion that a type of life force, or energy, known as qi (pronounced "chee") flows through energy pathways (meridians) in the body. Each meridian corresponds to one organ, or group of organs, that governs particular bodily functions. Achieving the proper flow of qi is thought to create health and wellness. Qi maintains the dynamic balance of yin and yang, which are complementary opposites. According to Chinese medicine, everything in nature has both yin and yang. An imbalance of qi (too much, too little, or blocked flow) causes disease. To restore balance to the qi, an acupuncturist inserts needles at points along the meridians. These acupuncture points are places where the energy pathway is close to the ...Read more

Can a neck collar help for cervicogenic headaches? Cannot take meds due to GI problems. Physiotherapy hasn't helped.
Unlikely: Echinacea is a "pop" remedy that has failed most of the controlled studies, though its popularity makes me think perhaps there's some real effect.

Reflux is a breeding ground for serious problems, including lung damage and cancer. ...Read more

This, of course, also depends on the skill of the homeopath! ...Read more
