You have probably heard about acupuncture, but if you are like many people, you probably have no idea what it entails. Simply put, acupuncture involves sticking needles through the skin, into specific points, in order to achieve health benefits. This involves relieving 'energy blockages'. Although this process may seem weird to many Western minds, there are actually many benefits to this type of treatment.
Herbs have been used for thousands of years to help heal the body and mind. Scientists are finally starting to substantiate these herbal plants abilities to alleviate such conditions as arthritis pain, reduce high blood sugar and cholesterol, and help with many other physical conditions.
