What We Treat
In the west, natural medicine appears to have a reputation of folk medicine. At the same time, such methods as naturopathy, homeopathy, various traditions of herbal medicine, hydrotherapy, fasting, exercise regimen, manipulations, glandular therapy, and so on have shown that there is more to these methods than mere belief. Many modern drugs were derived from plants, and many techniques that modern physicians use were originally developed in ancient times and honed over the years. So at least in theory, everything we need to keep us healthy is available in nature. In reality, finding the right solution for a specific problem is not that simple or easy.
Many conditions, particularly chronic ones, are not treated effectively in allopathic (mainstream western) medicine. For example, despite treatments, such conditions as fibromyalgia or migraine headaches continue to cause much suffering to those people who have them. Their treatment does not imply cure but a way of coping with the condition throughout a person’s life. And that’s the current outcomes of decades of experimentation and the incredible amounts of money invested in relevant research. Naturally, so much effort has not been wasteful. Scientists discovered a lot of new information, and they continue to do so with every passing day. This means that best practices that medical practitioners adhere to today may become outdated tomorrow.
During the last decade or so, the collected evidence points toward the effectiveness of integrative medicine, which is ironic, considering how much time, money, and effort various medical professions invested over the years for the right to exist. Apparently, the human body adapts to a one given treatment, and its efficacy decreases over time. Alternating various approaches or combining them appear to bring about better treatment results. Of course, what approach would work best depends on the condition but also on an individual patient. Placebo has proven to be so effective all by itself that research studies that do not include a control group (which is essentially deceived into believing that the same treatment was provided to its participants) are called “not well designed.” But can placebo be an effective treatment? Recent discoveries suggest that it very well may be (Colloca et al., 2015). Then what exactly placebo is and how it can be regulated remains to be discovered. For now, each patient would best benefit from the latest information available on his or her individual condition.

From the traditional viewpoint, all health issues arise from an internal organ imbalance, and no matter what issue compels someone to see an acupuncturist, the treatment should revolve around the functions of the internal organs. Whether the issue is acne, hair loss, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome, hearing loss, or overactive bladder, some experts warn others that acupuncture diagnosis and treatment should first focus on the obvious, but the examination (pulse, tongue, questions, symptoms & signs) still needs to consider the internal organ functions, thus to rule out, address, or preclude any existing or possible conditions.
