Will acupuncture conflict with my other medical treatment?
Acupuncture is compatible with other medical treatments and healing modalities.
Acupuncture is extremely useful in the treatment of certain kinds of medical problems which do not respond readily to Western medical remedies. For example, in conditions involving chronic pain, acupuncture represents an alternative which is usually more effective and beneficial than drug therapy. When analgesic drugs are used over long periods of time, undesirable side effects often develop. Acupuncture, on the other hand, is extremely safe, effective and free from side effects.
However, acupuncture and Western Medicine are not mutually exclusive. Very often, acupuncture is used in conjunction with Western medical and surgical treatments and proves very satisfactory.
