You are welcome! I never would have believed how valuable acupuncture is if it hadn't happened to our son and some of the improvements were visible. Unfortunately, a lot of the medical community are morons and don't recognize how important and valuable this science is, and another group which are often board certified surgeons of one flavor or another are afraid of it because it reduces their incomes. Too bad! They need to be more concerned for their patients than their BMWs and such.
Kim, I'm sorry you have that. I've just developed in the past few years arthritis in my spine. Boy does it stink. I'm 11 months away from having Medicare, so not much can be done for it, I guess. But going to the D.O. tomorrow anyway, perhaps he can refer me to a specialist? What would that be, a rheumatologist? Orthopedist? Do you know? Will pray for you. Ariel
