ACUPUNCTURE 

Acupuncture is a safe, natural, and effective way to treat pain and illness. It aids the body in maintaining health and immunity. It works by stimulating the release of specific neurotransmitters that activate the immune system. Acupuncture causes the release of endorphins such as norepinephrine, acetylcholine, and opioids, which positively affect the nervous system, reducing pain and inflammation, increasing blood circulation, and improving relaxation. Examples of diseases, symptoms, and conditions for which acupuncture has been proven to be an effective treatment according to the World Health Organization (WHO) are:

 

Adverse reactions to radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy

Allergic rhinitis

Depression

Dysmenorrhea

Headache

Hypertension

Nausea and vomiting
