But this isn't the exciting part of this story, believe it or not. The exciting part is that this was "discovered" because of a shortage of drugs getting to the hospitals. Adequate supplies aren't getting to the hospitals because of the war that has been raging for so many years now.
Doctors are opening their minds to other therapies in times of shortage and are finding great uses in them! While I would rather that the doctors be open-minded in times of plenty as well, this sure is something!
Doctors and hospitals of the world, please take a look at what the Iraqis have done. Please take note that you could decrease expenditures, decrease side effects and discover many more treatment options by accepting acupuncture as a powerful healing modality.
