Mama Deb

(no subject)

I will grant that I am skeptic about such things in the first place, but I know someone who has what she believes is a sinus infection. She is treating it with acupuncture instead of antibiotics because she hates pills.

And because she's rather treat the symptoms, not the cause.

I am a major skeptic when it comes to acupuncture in the first place, but even if it worked as advertised, they don't advertise as treating infections, just pain. If you have an infection, why not treat the infection? That'll take care of the pain, too - and there's no reason you can't do the alternative at the same time if you really want to.
