I am considering acupuncture to relieve tightness and spasms in my lower back. Does anybody have any experiences with acupuncture?
To disregard scientific advances and knowledge for folk medicine is quite an interesting thing these days. Yes, tribal people have many interesting theories and remedies and treatments. Some of them work. However, NONE of them are replacing bodily organs, eradicating diseases, or reattaching limbs. They cannot deal with mental disorders either.Many tribal people all over the world are using natural recipes and they are working very well, but nothing written on ” scientifics ” books.
And this is not true. TCM is not recognized to "work". While some aspects of it are possibly useful for very particular situations, as a whole, it is based on faulty premises and it is not scientific.Traditional Chinese medicines are recognized to work.
