Dr. Marcantel’s Personal Acupuncture Testimonial

So I decided to give it a try…

Coming as I do from a conventional medical background, I was a bit hesitant about my first acupuncture treatment. I had suffered from sinus congestion for over a week and was looking for an alternative to the standard over-the-counter drugs, so I decided to give acupuncture a try.

Immediately upon finishing my treatment, I felt no difference. However, throughout the following day I had continuous sinus drainage, which eventually led to clear sinuses and complete decongestant relief. I was amazed at the results. As part of my training as a naturopathic physician, I learned numerous protocols for treatments of various complaints, and I regularly offer acupuncture as part of an overall treatment plan for my patients, most of whom are very pleased with the results they receive.

My experience led me to believe that although we may not have the technology as of yet to measure the energy flow in the human body or completely understand how the technique of acupuncture works, we mustn’t discount it as an effective therapeutic tool. To borrow a line from Shakespeare, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” Just because we cannot explain every therapy in terms of conventional Western medical standards doesn’t mean they don’t work.
