Exposing the Hidden Values of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine may be an ancient form of medicine, but its uses have kept pace with today’s modern medical advances. In some cases, oriental medicine can be a more effective treatment than conventional medicine (and less harmful, too).

Through this and other research findings, the western world is now discovering (and proving) the types of clinical benefits that people in Asian countries have been experiencing with oriental medicine for years.

Why We Need More Naturopathic Doctors in America in 2017

Naturopathic medicine doctors (NDs) currently practice throughout the United States, working in private practice, hospitals, multi-disciplinary clinics, community health centers, and specialty treatment centers such as Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA). But with demand for this type of holistic care growing, there is certainly a need for more trained NDs.

For many, naturopathic physicians or NDs can offer a new perspective on their health care. NDs treat a wide variety of medical conditions and can provide both individual and family health care.
