SOME DISEASES IN WHICH ACUPUNCTURE IS USEFUL

The World health organization (W.H.O.) investigated the efficacy of acupuncture and released a list of diseases in which they had found acupuncture to be effective in 1973. They further expanded and modified this list in 1978 & 1982.

Acupuncture is now widely accepted the world over and has now been included as an effective form of treatment in standard textbooks of Western medicine. It is now an optional subject offered in many medical schools in the U.S.
