What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture has been in existence for thousands of years as a component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). It is an ancient technique involving the use of fine needles at varying lengths, which are inserted into specific acupressure points in the skin. Although acupuncture involves the use of needles, it is not painful when executed by a skilled acupuncturist.
With the proper needle insertion along the body’s acupressure points, acupuncture helps to treat particular conditions by realigning Qi. Qi is regarded as one’s vital energy and a disruption to its flow is said to cause illness.
The goal of acupuncture is to restore the healthy energy flow by controlling pain and other symptoms of a particular illness. However, in traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture works best when combined with a proper diet and herbal medicines.
Despite being an ancient technique, acupuncture is recognized by the National Cancer Institute as an excellent complementary therapy for cancer patients undergoing conventional therapy (surgery, chemotherapy and radiation).
Acupuncture effectively relieves several side effects experienced by cancer patients – caused by traditional treatment modalities.
6 Immediate Acupuncture Benefits for Cancer Patients
- Pain Relief: Since ancient times, acupuncture has been used to alleviate pain, which is one of the worst symptoms of cancer. Studies have shown that when fine needles are inserted in the right acupoints, endorphins – the body’s natural painkillers – are released. The endorphins then travel to the spinal cord and brain to relieve pain. Serotonin, another natural chemical in the body that makes you feel more relaxed and encourages a heightened sense of well-being, is also released during treatment.
Most patients being treated for cancer report a deep aching or burning pain induced by their medical treatments. Since this ancient technique stimulates the body to release natural painkillers, cancer patients are often able to decrease their intake of prescribed pain medication.
Some studies have shown that acupuncture reduced migraine symptoms and tension headaches, and could be as effective as taking headache medications. Other studies have revealed that acupuncture is an effective complementary alternative medicine for relieving the pain of carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, low back pain, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, neck pain, osteoarthritis, postoperative dental pain, and even tennis elbow.
- Ease Nausea and Vomiting: While undergoing chemotherapy, cancer patients usually experience nausea and vomiting. Studies have shown that acupuncture helps reduce these symptoms.
Based on a 2006 trial, electro-acupuncture (a form of acupuncture that sends small electric currents to the nerves through the inserted needles) reduced symptoms of vomiting on day one of chemotherapy. A United Kingdom study showed that wearing acupressure bands significantly reduced the episodes of nausea, retching, and distress in cancer patients.
By placing a fine needle into the P6 acupoint (also known as the Neiguan point), the urge to vomit is relieved. Most acupuncturists and doctors of TCM prefer to use the P6 acupoint (located below the distal wrist crease on a patient’s lower arm) to relieve nausea and vomiting in patients.
- Reduce Inflammation: Increased inflammation is part of the cancer patient’s physiology. Chemotherapy and other traditional cancer treatments will contribute to even more inflammation throughout the body.
Acupuncture reduces swelling by improving the flow of cytokines within the body. Cytokines are chemical messengers that affect blood vessel permeability, vasoconstriction, and vasodilation. The IL-10 type of cytokine helps decrease inflammation and studies have shown that acupuncture effectively raises IL-10 levels in the body.
- Better Sleep: Cancer patients experience a lot of pain and discomfort. As a result, they find it difficult to sleep. Acupuncture induces sleep by calming the body and relaxing the muscles. The inserted needles target muscles to send impulses to the brain causing them to relax. This process helps the patient to sleep through the night.
- Increased Appetite: Diminished appetite is a common side effect of cancer therapy because it causes xerostomia (painfully dry mouth and throat) by diminishing saliva production. Acupuncture helps to reduce these side effects and improve appetite. It also improves the health of their teeth and gums.
Based on research published in Annals Oncology, scientists investigated 145 patients suffering from radiation-induced xerostomia who participated in acupuncture and oral care education. They discovered that “patients who received nine weeks of acupuncture were twice as likely to report improved dry mouth than patients receiving oral care. Individual symptoms were also significantly improved among the group receiving acupuncture.”
- Lower Intensity of Hot Flashes: Breast and prostate cancer patients often exhibit hot flashes (sudden feverish heat from the inside out) when they undergo hormonal treatment. Hot flashes disrupt sleep patterns and daily activities.
Based on a study published in the Journal of Oncology, acupuncture “has longer-lasting effects on the reduction of hot flashes and night sweats for women receiving hormone therapy for breast cancer compared to drug therapy.”
Side Effects of Acupuncture
Serious side effects rarely occur when acupuncture is performed by a qualified therapist. Nonetheless, some who have had acupuncture treatments reported mild dizziness during their first session. Experts recommend that you be on the lookout for bruising, pain and bleeding around the puncture point. Contact your doctor if you encounter any problems.
This ancient therapy has been overlooked in the Western hemisphere but cultures all around the world have used it for thousands of years with incredible results.
If you are currently undergoing treatment for cancer, consider finding a qualified acupuncture therapist in your area and get some relief from the side effects today.

Regan Martin says
Hello Ty: Great article. Had laser acupuncture when it was first developed in Toronto over 25 years ago after straining my back in the gym. Walked in all bent over and walked out 1/2 hour later straight backed and pain free. Just amazing.
Ria vd Spaan says
I enjoyed watching the documentary the truth about cancer. I am flabbergasted but also greatfull of now knowing and learning about cancer. I hope to prevent this horrible disease. Lots of thanks from me.
Ria vd Spaan
I have chronic lower back pain and go regularly for acupuncture. It has definitely eased my pain.
Barbara Fike says
I have never used acupuncture but do use acupressure through NAET treatments. It has saved my life when I was very ill with upper respiratory illness and conventional medicine failed me. I would use acupuncture in a heart beat rather than the drugs prescribed through modern medicine!
Irene Black says
I received acupuncture from a Chinese Acupuncturist doctor of Chinese medicine all while receiving chemo and radiation and for some time after that. I still rave about the wonders of acupuncture. It relieves stress, pain, nausea, revitalizes your organs, energy, lifts your spirituality, there are absolutely NO negatives associated with acupuncture. If I could afford it I would still be doing it for continued good health.
I am currently doing acupuncture for my lower back right side. I’m a thyroid cancer patient & it does seem to relax the muscle & pain.
Dr. Michael Tick, ND says
Ty: great work you are doing with your programs and ongoing education with protocols like acupuncture. Now if you really want to put it out there, try talking with me about my specialty….Transdermal Infusion. After 35 years in the lab, and thousands of clients, our current success rate with cancer is: 23 full remission out of the last 29 patients. Even better results with some of the other major diseases. All done using the Skin as the transporter of herbs and botanicals to the inside of the body. Baths, body wraps, creams, lotions, ointments, gels, serums, etc. Had a lot of troubles getting pushed around by the FDA, AMA, big Pharma, legal departments, etc. Been flying ‘under the radar’ for years. With everything you are doing, it is time for me to take this to the world. If you want an exclusive, let’s talk. Again, much appreciation for your work.
Blessings, Dr. Michael Tick, ND
Hi Irene, have you looked into community acupuncture? It’s very affordable and often they provide a sliding scale.
Accupunture helps me with my headaches and back pain. I get Accupunture at least once per week for general wellbeing. I found out about Accupunture when my twin sister at the age of 21 was given chemo to treat Wegeners Granulomatosis. Accupunture helped her with the side effects of chemo. That was 25 years ago. My sister is fit and healthy now because she choose alternative medicine after the terrible things that chemo did to her body. My sister still suffers from psoriasis though.
Lynda Schoenbeck says
I used acupuncture (and therapeutic massage and chiropractic) for years for a variety of symptoms related to a neck injury. I believe that acupuncture has helped me avoid neck surgery all these years. Unfortunately once I turned 65, Medicare will not pay for any of those health benefits and my neck pain has increased, as I cannot afford to pay out of pocket. Hopefully I can continue to avoid surgery, which is a much riskier and more costly medical alternative. Medicare – get a clue!
Part of my “healthy lifestyle” routine is regular accupuncture and shiatsu sessions. Consider them “preventive” as assists in keeping aligned and balanced energy and if detect an imbalance can adjust quickly. Been receiving each monthly (sometimes more or less depending on project “job” currently have at the time). Highly highly recommend as preventive too.
Mary Paruszkiewicz says
I am a big advocate for Acupuncture it works for so many health issues. I just wish insurance companies would cover it. Like Irene mentioned I would go on a regular basis too if I could afford it.
I do not take medication,therefore I do acupuncture on and off, when I need to, for more than twenty years. There are no side effects, and it has truly saved me.
I have very bad nerve pain in both feet and both hands , i had 3 surgery’s still no help ,,had acupuncture for 4 months str8 5 days a week and had no change ,had to stop could not afford any more ,,I have heard people say it works my acupuncture is from tiwan and I suspect is very good he says I am very damaged and it will take time but after 4 months I thought I should see some change ,,so I am not sure what to do I can’t afford it any more ,, for the cost off one treatment I can afford narcotics for 5 months to ease the pain ,so I am in a real pickle trying to figure out do I continue or stop acupuncture.
Claude Cahrbonneau says
Ten years ago I suffered incredible pain due to an hernia in my neck (result of two whip lashes in the same car accident). Beside the pain, the left side of my body was paralysed and I couldn’t sleep for weeks. I was swallowing muscles relaxants and 8 Tylenol 3 per day but to no avail. I would watch the sun set and the sun rise every day. The only option I had was neck surgery which I dreaded a lot. Then one day a friend of mine suggested I call his acupuncturist. Wow! This guy was awesome. Within no more than two weeks everything was pretty much back to normal… and it has been so for the past 10 years. Do I believe in acupuncture for the treatment of cancer? Absolutely! As a matter of fact I believe in it for a variety of health issues. Acupuncture is a science that calls upon the body to heal itself. After all, the body is a wonderful God-created machine that can self-heal with a healthy lifestyle and with non invasive, non agressive and non toxic natural treament protocols. Best to you Ty and thank you for the great work you do.
Irene Sisson says
Ty, I am not responding to Chinese Acupuncture. Have been trying to figure out how to reach you and express myself. Have been watching all your so most informing episodes, and have learned so very much about nutrition we can give to your body. I do not have cancer, and will probably never get it. The knowledge I have received with your episodes have really turned our lives around, by giving our body the proper nutrients. I really miss watching them, and was telling my husband I was having withdraw symptoms now. Did purchase the package, and cant wait to receive, so can start making notes when watching it over and over again. Thank you for presenting this “TRUE” information, and all these interviews with these Dr.’s. Have learned so very much in watching all of them. I was born in a small town in Germany/Wendlingen, and lived the very simple live, eating from the earth. The only real sugar Mom gave me, was my choice having on a piece of bread she of course made, with butter or without. My sister choose with butter, and sugar stuck to that better. I choose without butter, but still enjoyed the sugar on bread.Came to America at age 11. It has been 50 years now since here. My Mom 89, very healthy and always eats the right things.
Ty, I hope this somehow does reach you. God Bless You for sharing all this! It has turned our live around to be more aware.
Thank You. Irene Sisson
Deborah Strasser says
Hi Irene, Maybe you could try a different acupuncturist? I recommend Dr Vincent Shu of INSPIRE Medical Clinic in Friday Harbor, WA. He has colleagues in some areas of the country so could possibly refer you to someone. We thought it didn’t work from past experience but via Dr Shu we are now BELIEVERS! He has seemingly saved my 28 year old son from seizures.
And….thank you Ty! What a brave person you are! You are a hero….and so are the many contributors to your films. Bravo! I’ve ordered them and also have begun making small dietary changes in our little world. Keep up the good work 🙂
Debbie Reed says
I have suffered from grinding my teeth for forty years. Nothing helped until I started having acupuncture done. Unfortunately, I had to stop the treatments because it was too far to travel and too expensive. I am a dental hygienist and have recommended it to many of my patients. It also helped my gall bladder problems immensely.
Mina Paladino says
I have had acupuncture in the past and found it helpful. I have since done more research, and my main concern is possible exposure to New Age practitioners and practices that will open the door to spiritual strongholds in the life of the person receiving this treatment.
Rob Howe says
I am not a cancer patient, but four weeks ago was diagnosed with shingles. Conventional treatment with antiviral medication, pain med, and Gabapentin for nerve pain have done nothing! My own treatments of DMSO, Capsaicin, Clove Oil, Epsom Salt baths, etc. seem to afford an immediate temporary relief, but nothing lasting. The pain is so intense that I have been lucky to get 2-3 hours sleep per night. A doctor I work with, who is open to alternative treatments suggested I try acupuncture, which I have never had before. I called immediately and made an appointment and will be seen (for the first time) later today. When I checked my email this morning, I found your article “Six Immediate Benefits of Acupuncture”. It was as if God was confirming I had made the right decision. I will keep you posted as to the results.
God bless you for all you do! My sister dies of pancreatic cancer, my brother has been diagnosed with bladder cancer, and my best friend has prostate cancer. I am spreading the word!
Jenny Craig says
I really hope your acupuncture treatments are successful Rob. I am an acupuncturist and have treated people with shingles pain, so I know how distressing it is, but maybe acupuncture will be your saviour.
I would like to thank Ty very much for this extremely positive posting about acupuncture. People need to know this! And it’s great to read so many encouraging replies. THANK YOU!!
Alan Mountford says
Many years ago I hurt my upper back rolling over on a narrow bunk on a boat one night.
My GP sent me to a manipulative therapist. The manipulation left me with pain down my right arm and numbness in my middle finger. He obviously had pinched a nerve in my back.
I went to see a Ghinese Acupuncturist for a session with him.
The pain and numbness dissapeared gradually over a period of a week or so afterwards and have had no further problems.since.
Guy Martel says
As a chiropractor, I, after graduation, studied for two years acupuncture and I know the power of acupuncture when well applied.
It works on the meridian to restore vital energy to help the body to heal itself. And the body as you know is vibratory so in this way,
acupuncture can do alot to not only work on the side effects but also to energize the whole body.
Christa Miller says
I did receive acupuncture after removal of an in-situ growth and 12 limp nodes in 2002 (no radiation or chemo but tamoxiphen). I could not lift my arm and did have some pain. Along with some bark-tea the treatment did lessen my pains and I could finally pull a t-shirt on, rather than constantly wearing blouses (I am not the type 🙂 ).
Regrettably the doctor moved when I did have the second episode in 2012.
Even though I now do consider myself healthy, Ty’s series and the information provided is priceless! Have made some changes to my eating-habits. Again, thank you!
I am a medical qigong instructor for exactly these reasons and many, many more. Qigong is movement and thought designed to circulate chi through the body in order to bring about optimal health. Where acupuncture works directly on the meridians that, then, access the organs, qigong works on the fascia which influences the meridians and, in turn, the organs. I see miracles happen in my classes! Best way to find an instructor near you, nqa.org
Jean Brumwell says
Have only used acupuncture once ( three sessions). No adverse effects. I do believe in trying proven remedies when one is faced with serious health issues.
Patricia Mathews says
Love my acupuncture. Not a regular user,but it does “realign the internal system. I recently was told I had too many blood platelets – over one million. I was given a script that is used for cancer patients. I had been told I did not have cancer. This would be something I would take the rest of my life. Numerous side effect choices, plus if you handle the capsule be sure you are wearing a glove! I immediately drove to the Chinese Wellness Clinic. The the past 3 weeks I have had 2 acupuncture treatments. I was given 4 bottles of supplements to take 3x a day. I had another blood test. Platelet count had dropped over 400 in count. I was told to keep doing what I was and come back in a month for another blood test.
When I explained what I had been doing the hematologist was surprised I had not been taken the script she had given me and still had such great success. No questions asked. She only knew to recommend the script, but said, “I think you know what you are going to do”.
Thank you Ty for all you do. Thank your family for their support in the time you have been away from home. As I listed to your program I knew i had made the right choice. Special thanks to your “crew and staff”.
Rosemary Curtis says
I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from two licensed doctors of Chinese medicine (a husband and wife team who came to the US from Taiwan in the 1990’s) for over 10 years. I started going to them before I had cancer because I had a problem with allergies that 3 Rx’s were not controlling. I go 2 or 3 times a year for a treatment and no Rx’s are needed. When I was diagnosed with NHL (Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma) Stage 4, the cancer was all through my body including my bone marrow. I took acupuncture while going through chemo, to relieve the nausea and the terrible pain from the Neulasta shots they gave me after each chemo treatment. The Neulasta shot made me feel like someone had beat me all over with a baseball bat and set in about 30 minutes after I received the shot. After that first chemo and shot, my acupuncturists set up a schedule where I would go immediately to them for a treatment right after each shot (Their office was right across the street from the oncologist!). I never had any more pain from the shot and no nausea. I was able to stop the nausea meds the oncologist gave me – I didn’t need them. I also did not take the full schedule of chemo the oncologist recommended (“Protocol” is another word for “we have no idea so we’re guessing”.). My cancer was gone after the 3rd treatment (PET Scan verified this.), so I refused the remaining treatments, against my oncologist’s advice. That was in 2007. I do not believe I would be here today if I had taken the remaining 4 treatments they recommended. Now my husband has Stage 4 Prostate Cancer and he is receiving acupuncture treatments and doing several other alternative treatments. He has decided not to take chemo (an easy decision after watching me go through it!) and knows, after watching “The Truth About Cancer” that he has made the the right decision. We admire what Ty Bollinger is doing and ordered the videos to share with our family and friends because we believe in what he is trying to do and want to help spread the good news.
Hope D Davis says
I received acupuncture for neck trauma. I was in a car crash when I was young and had chronic pain for 15 years. I had 10-12 acupuncture treatments and have been “whiplash” pain free for 8 years. Also, I have no more chronic headaches.
Diana Nicole Cruz-Campbell says
I received acupuncture treatment before I was diagnosed with cancer to help relieve pain. It only worked the first treatment. After that my body received no affects from the treatment other than some bruising at the pin sites…Not sure if giving it a second chance would help with pain relief or not…I do think it works for some people though. Just not everyone.
Paul Little says
For over 20 years I suffered from chronic cluster headaches. In that time I tried every conceivable medical remedy to no avail. I tried Chinese accupuncture and I have not had a headache now in over 18 years. (3-4 visits every year has been sufficient to banish them altogether)
Hi I am overwelmed after I saw the whole summit and I could not believe that we are intoxicated in every air we breath almost every water we drink and the government is the main one that’s causing these sickness I not only on us but our next generations to come. I thank God that I was able to learn from your summit and all the doctors and testimonies ofpeople you have beat cancer the god given way with the planet. As for acupuncture I’ve tried different methods and it doesn’t work for me I come put with more pain. God bless and ask him to keep guiding you to your calling of helping people of all bations
Nancy Jenkins says
I prefer accunpressure, hate needles.
Marcel Mallette R.Ac. says
I’m a Registered Acupuncturist in Vernon BC Canada and have done acupuncture on many cancer patients with great success. It helps a lot with the nausea and loss of appetite and of course with any pain.
There is something else I have been doing in the last year and that is to rebalance the bodies cells to vibrate at the right frequencies to improve the healing of the body. There was a doctor who talked about the importance of the cells vibrating at the right frequencies I think in episode 7. There is a method of doing this which is called ACMOS. It was developed in Paris by a biophysicist. It’s very non invasive and have found very effective when following the balancing with acupuncture treatments. The results have been amazing.
This also helps prevent the development of other health issues since your body cells can communicate properly and stop things from developing.
Will be using the nutrition info to also help all of my patients.
I think everyone should see your program. Great work!!!
The docu-series was a very powerfully informative presentation. I have ordered the silver package and have been spreading tidbits of this to others with this disease. My husband is one with this disease and how I wish we had been informed like we are now, when he was first diagnosed. We were told we didn’t have any time to waste.
Dawn Dan Qualey says
In San Luis Obispo CA thee best Acupuncture”ist” Ann-Marie Radecki, L.Ac.. Seriously I am a huge fan of what Ty has accomplished and am making serious changes to my way of life (pulling the hubby along….) I had a Hip replacement in Jan from Oct to Jan I was in a lot of pain. I refused to use pain relievers and opiats so I went to Ann Marie. Every week I saw her sometimes twice and I made it through the pain happier and healthier. Also when I had my hip replacement after 4 days I stopped all drugs and my Dr (who is also a health person)said its why I was so successful walking 5 miles the first week and dong a 12 mile hike at the 3rd month. I used ice that is all ICE and so much more healthier to boot. Again Ty thank you to your family, all the Dr’s involved and specialists. I needed to see this series and am so glad I got too.
John Morris says
Thanks for the very useful information.
My experience with acupuncture was really amazing; after weekly treatments for 2 months my sister and me were free of migranes for years! And we suffered from it all our life, like our mother, grandmother, greatgrandmother…We have been treated by real Chinese doctors who were working in a german hospital. They go through 10 years of studies and training and we should not expect the same results from practicioners who attended a weekend workshop.
keith west says
I’ve had acupuncture with needles and electric current both offered relief but the response was quicker with the electric process. Also tried EFT with good results..
I love acupuncture. I am fortunate to see a physician trained in China in both Traditional CM and Western medicine, who learned acupuncture starting at age 12. He is fully registered to practice acupuncture in the area I live. In fact I saw him yesterday, a man of wisdom, high ethical standards and a lovely sense of humour, who regularly explains how the individual points work on the body. I am fortunate since I don’t have cancer, but a family member does and so far so good and yes we try to eat organic and avoid regular grocery store products. We are fortunate to live near natural farmers, who deliver a basket weekly when the growing season commences. A well trained acupuncturist is worth their weight in gold.
Yes I’ve had Acupunture but not because I had cancer but to relieve stressful ache and muscle pains associated with the work I do, it helps a great deal.
I used Acu several times but did not notice any changes. I also heard that there is a specific type of acupuncture and the name of this is Five elements – seven dragons”
However, only one lady was specializing in this everybody has a different style. Hard to afford in this situation
Judy Sabah says
In June 1989 after I found a large lump on my left breast, I went to see a surgeon who scheduled a biopsy. Shortly after leaving the surgeon’s office I heard a very strong message to not have the biopsy. My chiropractor gave me a book the next week, The Breast Connection, which told about the differences in Western Medical and Easter Medical opinions toward breast disease. I cancelled the biopsy, began working with a Chinese Medicine Dr, having acupuncture, drinking the herbal tea made specially for my symptoms by the Dr, as well as continuing with chiropractic, massage and reflexology. It took one year for the lump to completely disappear. I had a mammogram then and there was nothing there. I have since discontinued mammograms. This was a very powerful experience for me. It was the beginning of a new path in taking care of myself. I am still on that path.
Susan Langton says
I used acupuncture on a regular basis for a number of years and was treated by a very skilled professor who had trained in China and also used homeopathy. Unfortunately he retired many years ago and I have only used it spasmodically since then and have had one or two practitioners who were pretty useless – so like everything in life – its the quality of the practitioner who makes or breaks a reputation of a treatment. My various health problems, particularly breathing, was the condition that drove me to originally find this option but have seen its results on other people for a multitude of reasons. I was unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with cancer a couple of years ago and now am looking to go back to acupuncture as one of the arrows in my armoury to keep everything at bay ! My husband after a year or more of an extremely painful frozen shoulder which no doctor or specialist was able to solve had a couple of sessions with an acupuncturist – all pain gone and he had movement back so he could get back to his tennis.
Gulnar Lalani says
Good Morning friends,
I have been suffering pain in the right side of my body I.e right shoulder, right center spine and right lower and hip for 20 years and this pain is @ the same spot .
Came across Dr. Kang in Los Angeles California who has been treating me a combination of
Burns Solar Energy from a plant in my spots
Herbal drink which he prepares
I am 80 percent healed. He is a miracle and I highly recommend your team to contact him and help humanity at large.
Before this I had spend thousands in massages, chiropractic care, Nucca but pain always returned.
Please look into this care and I am sure you will unfold another hidden truth about ancient care.
Love and Light in your hearts,
Laci Dunaway says
We all have a story, we all suffer and hopefully we all get a chance to watch Ty tell his story. Traditional medicine is about getting us dependent on them versus being independent and responsible for our own wellbeing and decisions. Being a healthy individual, it is great to have this knowledge to prevent and then again, to not end up scrambling if a diagnosis should cross my path. Thank you Ty! Funny, I have always believed there was something more, better and less toxic than conventional cancer treatments.
Larissa Stephantseva says
Accupuncture is a great treatment! We have 1000s of biological pressure points, reflecting internal organs. So by stimulating those points we stimulate Qi or Life or Vital energy! Speaks for itself! I would recommend Chinese doctor, they go through a very intense complex training, some of them 2nd 3d generation of acupuncturists!
Lorraine Mcgough says
I have had acupuncture for a couple of years now. It is a great method to help reduce pain and stress.
I am currently using Stay In Touch acupuncture in Florence MA. The owner, Marta, is very passionate about her work and is also very easy to talk to. I recommend her highly!
Jay Elam says
I have never tried acupuncture, but have been curious about it.. I don’t see how so many doctors just arrogantly dismiss as quackery or voodoo something that has been around for 5,000 years or more! Anything that has been around for that long deserves a closer look.
How does one find a qualified acupuncture practitioner in their area? I’ve heard that if acupuncture is improperly performed you are risking your time and money, as well as your health. This is what has kept me from trying it for so many years. The few offices I have spoken to all assure me that theirs is the ONLY practitioner for miles in any direction that uses the one true and proved method that was revealed to them by an angel in a cave halfway up Mt. Fuji. I’m always a bit dubious of people who are THE ONLY ones who know the “Real Truth” about anything. Is there any one out there who can give me a little advice on choosing qualified acupuncturists? Any help appreciated.
Susan Sahota says
There are some useless qualified people in this world and there are some talented and gifted but not qualified people in this world….one of life’s great mysteries – good luck in your endeavours to find the right person for your needs xx
The best way I know to find a great practitioner is to interview them. There seems to be a dividing line between what a traditionally trained practitioner does and one with more western training. Ask questions about how it works, what are acupuncture points, and what is chi. The more traditional practitioner will talk about energy circulation and meridians. The western view is that acupuncture stimulates the nervous system through superficial nerve endings. Your looking for someone who recognizes the energy body and knows how and why to access it.
…and btw, I’ve had some of the best acupuncture at the schools that teach it. Just know that they teach real Chinese medicine.
Marcel Mallette R.Ac. says
I’m a Registered Acupuncturist in Vernon BC Canada and don’t know where you are. There are governing bodies for licenced acupuncturist in the U.S.A. and registered in Canada. They have listings of qualified practitioners, properly trained Acupuncturist in different areas. The angel trained people will not be on that list.
Good luck in your search.
VICTORIA SUM says
My sister, suffered from double vision plus she needed a heavy-duty walker to help with movement after a serious stroke last year in February last year (2015). About one month after discharge from hospital care, she was treated with one top acupuncturist from Peking, the double vision was gone, and it did not take long she could walk without that walker again, only with the walking stick for sometime only. Terrific treatment with that “top” acupuncturist !! (now in Brisbane, Australia) Plus the charge is only the normal cost !! Hoping many post-stroke sufferers could benefit from his treatment.
pamel calver says
i was totally fascinated by the amount of information i got from the series. as i missed some of it I look forward to watching my DVD when they arrive. fabulous project and research. i have acupuncture regularly for boosting my immune system, relieve of discomfort in my neck i get from time to time. I think it s magic.
Darlene Benson says
I received acupuncture after each of my 8 rounds of chemo for breast cancer. It helped with the bone aches and nausea.
I have recently had 3 acupuncture sessions and I love it! I immediately felt cleansed and refreshed. My main focus area is on my stomach organs and ovarian pain which unfortunately has not yet gone away although it has gotten a bit better, but i do know that stress is a big factor in that so I am trying to maintain as stress free as possible. I recommend acupuncture all the time now because of its healing benefits. I feel the toxins release right out of me and it feels amazing! <3 <3 <3 <3
Bonnie Fallowfield says
Hi, Ty ~ watch all the videos about Cancer, a lot of information to absorb. Can’t wait until we receive the videos and review it again. Question, on the last episode with all the people that conquered cancer, what happen to the one you gave a bottle of frankincense too? did he make it? did see him in the last episode.
Hi Bonnie, We do not have an update at this time.

First I want to thank Ty for the series. I had just gone thru major “debulking” surgery/total hysterectomy, appendix, 16 cm tumor, glands, omentum removal, etc., four months of weekly chemo for ovarian cancer when I became aware of the documentary last year. Fortunately I was also doing weekly acupuncture for the disease and taking herbs, supplements and homeopathic tinctures. I have been doing acupuncture for about fourteen years, saved me from major colon surgery due to endometriosis about 12 years ago. The colon surgeon was present at the second surgery for the endometriosis and he wanted to do a third surgery to remove a large section of the colon that was involved and he felt the surgery would have resulted in a colostomy bag. I did acupuncture instead. I told the gynochological oncologist about that and she said the colon looks very good now! I since have also been seeing a naturopathic Doctor and he has me on vitamin c infusions and chelation and lots more supplements and Kaqun water. I went to a holistic dentist and had all silver fillings removed and the root canal replaced with an implant. Just received the lowest ca-125 results! And feel good! Yes, it is very expensive, but almost everyone I know that had this disease has either passed on or requiring ongoing chemo. With faith and “my support team” I am very optimistic. Thank you again for sharing the information and helping us to save our lives.

Never used Accupuncture but use Accupressure when I attend the dentist -so that I do not have to have an injection to numb the area – it works!! and my 15 year old who has been using the technique for the last 10 years can also vouch for this – Amazing XX
Constance W. Wolfe says
I have been getting regular acupuncture treatments twice/month for several years and use it to STAY in balance. I believe in and have been using energy medicine for over 25 years and believe in the power of the Inner Healer. I have a degree in Integral Health and teach various metaphysical topics, mostly astrology, for the purpose of Growth and Well-being. I am 84 years old and take NO prescription medicines; I see them as mostly poisons that we have to overcome. These are just some comments on Natural Health and the power of Intention/Belief.
I have had acupuncture off and on for many years but the most profound treatment I had was when I had a torn rotator cuff with a frozen shoulder. I didn’t have a traditional practitioner at the time but the local hospital provided it along with physio therapy so I asked to get it as well knowing what benefits I had derived from earlier one hour treatments. My original complaint – I couldn’t move my arm out from my hip more than 4 – 6 inches. For six months I was getting physio and making very little headway, I could barely move my arm out from my hip past 12 inches and was in agony with the movement. They were recommending surgery. They were not doing enough ( 3 – 4 needles for 7 minutes tops ) so I asked if they would do it my way and because they knew that I worked with energy as well (I am a certified Reiki Master Teacher in two forms of Reiki) they agreed. On the Friday I told them where to place the 9 needles and to leave them in for a minimum of 30 minutes. It was the best treatment I had gotten so far and I felt very relaxed after (as I should have been). That very night I was able to not only get my arm out past the 12 inches but I got it all the way up to my head and over my shoulder touching my fingers to my opposite ear … without pain! It worked!!! I was afraid my shoulder would seize up over the weekend so I practiced that one movement every few hours all weekend long. On Monday when I went back to show them the results they were all bug eyed with disbelief as to such a profound and quick healing. They saw what the proper amount of needles would do for a longer time period. I was back to full movement and able to do the exercises they gave me. I never needed the surgery. THAT is how well acupuncture works when done properly! I highly recommend it to anyone. *smiles*
Dr Quila Rider says
Ty, your work is wonderful, as it is waking folks up to the way of assisting the body to heal itself. I am a PhD in Acupuncture, but for the last 12 years using patches instead of needles that offer a light signal to the body to move the Qi. We get pain relief in just seconds, and all the other benefits of Acupuncture, with out any of the side effects as the body is in charge, not the patch. Would love to show you this technology.
Margaret Wolf says
I have used acupuncture on several occasions, back pain and lower leg pain and it helped on both occasions. The problem here in Sweden is that their are very few leg. practitioners. I went to a Chinese Dr. who has a very good reputation. I appreciated your article very much, thank you.
Anne Lilholt says
Thank you Ty for the enormous amount it has taken for you to create the nine episodes, I am sorry to say that I have missed a few , but have ordered the Silver Package.
Thank you so very much.
Adam Jackson says
Hello Ty, I am a licensed acupuncturist. At my clinic we treat a lot of patients who have been diagnosed with various types of cancer quite successfully. My best friend and mentor was the first person I ever personally witnessed going through the kinds of treatments we offer. He was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and was told he would have to have his colon, bladder, and prostate removed. He did not have bladder cancer but they wanted to remove it because the chemo often causes bladder cancer.
He decided he did not want to have those procedures and in spite of the threats from the surgeon that he would surely die if he did not let them cut him to ribbons right away my friend decided to stop all allopathic intervention and came to my clinic for help. According to the medical monopoly we have in this country I am not legally allowed to say we helped him treat his cancer with Acupuncture, nutrition, herbs, supplements, spiritual and emotional feedback, meditation techniques, and Shirodhara. I can say however that these are the things we offered him on his journey back to optimal health and not only does he still have all of his parts but he has been completely cancer free for well over a year now.
Thanks so much for the work you are doing and for providing a forum for people like my friend to share their strength and hope with others.
Ki Hackney says
I have had acupuncture several times in my adult life and am about to use it again, although not during two bouts with cancer. Your column was inspiring, true and helpful.
Frances Johnson says
Hi Ty, I had acupuncture a few years ago, might try it again. I have been trying to find out how to contact you. I realise that you are very busy but need to ask you a couple of questions in regards to my situation.
When going through chemo for breast cancer in 2010, had acupuncture (using needles with a current) 2 days before each chemo treatment, including Nulasta injection. Never experienced nausea nor vomiting after any treatment and for the most part felt pretty well, considering. Have also had acupuncture, including cupping, for degenerative disc and upper neck issues…didn’t cure my issues but did provide relief. Have now been experiencing hip, lower back pain and sciatica since last June (a recurring problem since 2008 but on other side of spine this time). Been to chiropractor, had Avassia (form of bio-feedback) and Rife treatments, adaptive yoga to no avail. Been to neurologist and he doesn’t recommend surgery at this time. Because of added issue of hip pain, PCP sent me to a orthopedic surgeon who took x-rays of pelvis and dIagnised me with bursitus and tendonitis in both hips, gave me shots of cortisone (both hips) and saId the shots could be repeated every 3 months. Six weeks later, still having hip pain but because 3 mo. hadn’t passed, orthopedic surgeon wouldn’t give me another shot. I said I needed something for the pain so he prescribed physical therapy. The physical therapist diagnosed part of my problem as tipped pelvis in addition to the sciatica, bursitis and tendonitis. Have been doing peri-formance (sp) and ham string stretches for about 7 wks., ceased all exercising and finally starting to get relief BUT today physical therapist is also recommending accupuncture because sciatica nerve has still not calmed down. Will be making acupuncture appt. next week in hopes that it will help calm nerve involved with sciatica in combination with continued PT. Bursitis and tendonitis are soooo much better now but because of tipped pelvis, have to be constantly aware of how to walk properly…something I used to take for granted!
Have both of your The Truth About Cancer series as well as your book Cancer Step Outside The Box (an earlier issue) as well as your most recent 6th edition. Have recommended your series as well as your book to several friends with cancer and to my surprise, none of them have been interested in the series or your book, following only the protocols outlined by their doctors and oncologists. Being a 3 time cancer survivor (have had 3 separate and unrelated cancers) since 1999, feel your book Cancer Step Outside The Box started me on a journey to discover every resource I could find on cancer…your book is an absolute goldmine and have even recommended it to healthcare professionals. Keep up the good work and your journey to inform the public about natural cancer cures. Am hopeful more people will view or read your work and follow one or more of the protocols outlined in an effort to obtain better heath and become cancer free.
It has been over 5 1/2 years since my last cancer. On a sidenote, my PCP facilitated the TK-1 enzyme test for me in January and my score came back less than 20, the best I could expect. The test will become part of my annual physical as a tool to create peace of mind. Would not have know about this test without your The Truth About Cancer series. Thanks for all you and the practitioners you intervIewed do. You are spreading the word…THERE ARE NUMEROUS NATURAL CANCER CURES!
When I first had buzzing in the ears( tintinus) I went to the only acupuncturist I knew about. I have a mixed report. I went twice a week for about 10 weeks. He was an elderly Korean who was a member of the Hartford CT County Medical Society. He told me that this hearing problem was a
challenge to treat but he would be willing to try. I was lying on my back while the doctor inserted the thinnest of needles into a few areas of my face, my knee an a few other areas. The needles were sterile and were individually wrapped in paper the same as bandaids. If the acupuncturist does not open the packages in front of you, the needles might not be sterile. There is no pain involved and surprising to me, no red marks left on the skin when the session is over. After the pins are in you will be left alone for 30 minutes to relax and rest. Then the doctor will return and remove the needles and you are free to go. In total I went 20 times. My hearing problem was unchanged,but I had other positive changes.
My breathing and hay fever improved, a pain in one knee went away, and I slept better. This docter is now retired, but I would not hesitate to go to another one if I could find someone qualified close to my home.
Caprice Westergard says
What a great article. I would not expect anything else from you.
I had an pneumonectomy eleven years ago (right lung). After chemotherapy, I did try an acupuncturist for relief of pain as well as for a constant burning inside on the right side of my body. I also had a large bulging area on the side of my right breast. Acupuncture did not seem to help eleviate my problems. I decided to try a massage therapist and he was able to resolve the fluid in the lymph nodes. I took pain meds but the burning issue never could be resolved until a couple of years ago when I met with a pain management team at the Cancer Clinic. Two years ago, a mass was found in my remaining lung and I underwent harsh radiation which burnt the lung. Prior to this radiation, it was not necessary for me to use oxygen. Now, I use oxygen, but only when I am labouring to breathe and for sleeping. When I had a PET scan at the time the mass was found, I was all diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I will have no further treatment respecting the lung and I am undecided concerning chemotherapy treatment for the rest of my life to keep the lymphoma at bay. I am going to try acupuncture again.
I am definitely trying some natural healing processes and I am inspired by the recent nine-part series documentary hosted by you.
Thank you for caring and giving so many hope.
Rhonda C., L.Ac. (@watermama_acu) says
I am an acupuncturist. I’m currently completing coursework for Doctor of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine. I am treating a patient with cancer. I purchased the DVD’s and the digital downloads. I’ve also subscribed to the newsletters. Thank you for all your hard work! It is greatly appreciated!
Christine Hofkens says
You asked for reactions to experiences with acupuncture. I tried for one year weekly treatment for arthritis pain in one foot.
I believe in acupuncture and the doctor is Chinese and has a long and well established clinic. Unfortunately acupuncture didn’t help to ease or get rid of the pain in my foot, so I stopped after one year. A specialist offered an operation with a tail of 12 months healing of which he could not garanty it would be succesful, so also that was a ‘no’. After watching The Truth about Cancer, I immediately started to live healthier than I already did and watch every food I consume. It may benefit my arthritis! If necessary I will try acupuncture for other body parts.

Mary Canfield says
I had acupuncture last year when I had an impinged nerve in my shoulder. Not only was it hurting constantly, but a couple of my fingers had a little numbness. My back and neck were terribly knotted up on the left side. I went to AOMA in Austin and had acupuncture. The acupuncture was amazing. It eased out the knotted muscles in my back and neck and helped the pain in my shoulder. The doctor told me to get some pills called Solitary Hermit Teapills for the nerve pain, and they helped! Add to that some neck and shoulder exercises from the physical therapist, and I was good to go. (My regular doctor had given me Tramadol. I only took a couple, because it made me sick to my stomach and didn’t help the pain much.) I will definitely be using acupuncture again!
Steve & Dee Taylor says
My wife and I would like to say a big thank you for making and showing the 9 shows. We were already aware of the Big Pharma scandal, but we had no clue as to the ease which cancer could be avoided, or how many alternative ways there are to fix it, if it happened to us.
We are now waiting for our box set to arrive so that we can see it all again, taking notes this time.
You are high quality people. Thanks again.
Steven Dalglish says
Hi Michael, can you please send me more info on your protocol or direct me to your website if you have one.
Hi Steven, We do not have a list of certain protocols, but we do have a list of the experts that we interviewed in our series. Here is that link: https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/experts-info-sheet/
I injured my back training racehorses in 1989. Went to a few Doctors, chiropractors, osteopaths and eventually ended up at Peng Lee (Koombana Physiotherapy Centre) having acupuncture. I am so needle phobic, it took me 6 months to get there for treatment. In three days he had me back riding track work. Prior to that I was in agony and could not stand for more than ten minutes at a time. Sleep was all but impossible. Acupuncture for me was brilliant, could not recommend it highly enough. And for the cowards out there (like me) it does not hurt. I also use magneto pulse therapy on myself and my dogs with good success. We used it a lot on the racehorses with excellent results.
My friend also had bi carb therapy from a Doctor trained in the procedure by Tulio Simoncini. I took my friend to a lecture given by Tulio at University of Western Australia, she approached him afterwards. At that stage she had been diagnosed with advanced colon cancer. Doctors terrorised her into an instant decision to have surgery and chemo. Into hospital and surgery the day she was diagnosed. She woke with a colostomy bag in situ. Then when she refused chemo the Doctors basically told her she was an idiot and did she want to die. They told her that without chemo and radio she would certainly die. She stood firm and did not have chemo, but went for the Bi Carb treatment instead. That was ten years ago and no relapse. BUT she has nearly died three times from side effects of the operation.
Alan Scott says
I developed a very severe “Tennis Elbow”. The pain was indescribable. Dr was going to book me in for surgery. A pal suggested acupuncture. After 5 sessions, I was pain free, the swelling was gone and I was able to perform heavy work with that arm. The cure was permanent.
Nine years ago, I developed a very painful frozen shoulder and couldn’t sleep at all as it was like a fire burning inside the shoulder. My naturopath recommended an acupuncturist. I had had acupuncture previously so was familiar with it. The practitioner was so good the severe pain subsided by 80-85% after the first treatment. It was as though he had sucked the fire out.
Edith Keady says
I watched 7 out of 9 episodes of your broadcasts, very informative, and have ordered a set. I have been receiving acupuncture treatments at Arkansas Acupuncture Center in Bentonville for over 3 years for Macular Degeneration in my eyes. Needles go in the palms of my hands and bottom of my feet, with two to four needles in eyebrows. There are very few acupuncturists who know this technique. It isn’t a cure, but does improve some vision, increases circulation, and keeps it from getting worse. The latter is my main goal, and keeps me going back every 6 months.
I ordered the gold series, but thought it was a one time fee of $158.45 as an early bird half price, but I was mistaken. It is another payment of $148 which I can’t afford. I am hoping to downsize to the silver package if they can still do it today and refund the difference back to my account, as I am on a very limited income. Another person just messaged me privately and said she was charged twice the amount, almost $600 out of her account. I sure hope this is not the case and that thetruthaboutcancer will reimburse me and not take out even more! I think it’s a worthy cause, but that is too much for me. Yes I have had acupuncture and it did help.
Hi Marilyn, I would suggest contacting our customer support team: https://support.thetruthaboutcancer.com/submit_ticket They will be able to help you with the downsizing of a package.
donna niemann says
Acupuncture saved me from surgery over 20 years ago. I was suffering from excruciating shoulder pain, diagnosed as bursitis, and an x-ray revealed a large calcium deposit pressing on the nerve. I couldn’t function, the pain was relentless, there was no comfortable position, no relief. I was told I needed surgery to remove the calcium and I’d be fine, except for a few months of recovery and some loss of range of motion. I went to an acupuncturist, doubled over in pain, and after the first session I felt amazing relief. There was still a bit of pain left, but nothing compared to what I’d been experiencing. He told me I’d need 6 or 7 treatments to fully recover. I noticed that the pain was improving between visits as well. I think we did five treatments at the time, and I’ve been fine all these years. After that my acupuncturist was the first person I saw for any health problems. Sadly for me, he moved out of New York a couple of years ago, but he recommended a colleague who is also quite wonderful.
I also have been treated at AOMA. What a fantastic place!
charlie nixon says
I set out to find the truth about acupuncture some years ago, having studied on my own as much as possible natural healing. I worked with several doctors and knew a little about how the body works, and could not see the connection between our physiology and the placement of the needles of acupuncture. I can now say that you have to accept the mystical teaching of the east to believe in the placement of the needles along the meridians that are said to exist it is a faith issue not an physiological fact. I do, as a Christians, believe in miracles and the place faith plays in our healing, which is clearly biblical. And as far as the healing results many experience, that gets into a whole different issue, briefly to say that there is a power other than Gods that can both afflict and release such affliction. And there is the fact that much of mans illness are result of negative thought, mentally induced and perhaps the same may be said of some healing. For what’s it’s worth, Charlie
Brendsel Deborah says
I have had NAET treatments from Dr Nambudripad, which is awesome and her husband administered the acupuncture after the tx. Tx was not cancer related however we had conversations cancer. I believe she (may be retired) or their son could be another source of help in Southern CA.
There is also Dr Tong and his daughter in Irvine, CA who practice Chinese medicine with herbs, nutrition and utilizes acupuncture. He feels that no matter what the disease is, Qi is the key, so keeping it open and flowing allows the body to heal.
I love these doctors and believe they could be helpful.
Irene Black says
Thanks for that, I have never heard of community acupuncture, but I will definitely look for it now. Thanks Mary-Louise, that is helpful information. regards Irene
Harriet Gatter says
I began using Acupuncture in 2006 when I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had to get off of estrogen for beyond severe menopausal symptoms. My oncologist wanted me to take sleeping pills, muscle relaxants, and anti-depressants (although I wasn’t depressed) for the rest of my life to manage the symptoms. I would have truly been medicated out of existence had I followed his advice.
Fortunately, a dear friend told me about acupuncture. When I went for my first appointment, my acupuncturist schooled me on diet and Eastern medicine and really listened to me–it was quite an education! He told me that he would have me off of estrogen with a high quality of life in a couple of months. He also told me that it would help with all aspects of my life including dealing with my ailing, elderly Mother. I said “No, no, no, I’m just here to get off of estrogen.” He very kindly told me that Eastern medicine treats the whole person and there would be side effects–all of them positive. He was so right!
Well, I was off of estrogen in a couple of months. It was not easy, but it was manageable and I had my quality of life restored. And, he was also right about my Mother. I used acupuncture to deal with the stress of watching my lovely Mother decline and die. Over the years, I have turned to my acupuncturist whenever I feel unwell–either physically or emotionally. You see, in eastern medicine, the theory (which makes tons of sense to me) is that blocks in your energy can become so chronic that they harden and turn into cancer. I use acupuncture to unblock those blocks and hope to prevent a recurrence of cancer. To me, acupuncture is so much more than just symptom relief in the fight against cancer.
Over the years, I have successfully used acupuncture for a frozen shoulder, swine flu, coughs and colds, stress, UTI’s and to generally boost my immune system. A couple of years ago, one of my daughters had a cyst in her breast. Her western doctor wanted to do a mammogram, ultrasound and aspiration. I sent her to my acupuncturist who treated her a couple of times before the western doctor could fit her into his schedule. By the time she got to the appointment, the doctor couldn’t find the cyst, cancelled all the tests, and sent her home.
A few years ago, I moved to a different part of the country and had to find a new acupuncturist. It took me 3 tries before I found a new, wonderful practitioner. My suggestion in searching for an acupuncturist is to look at their training, how well they listen to you, and what results you receive. Most people turn to acupuncture and alternative medicine when they are desperate–I certainly did. It may feel more comfortable going to the MD who also does acupuncture who is on the staff of the hospital, but I prefer to stay away from them. Often MD’s get a couple of months’ training in acupuncture and offer that as a side. Also, if you are in the hospital system, everything you say goes on your record, and I tend to avoid telling my doctor much of anything. True acupuncturists train for several years–often in China– and work with other acupuncturists extensively before going into practice. They are true, compassionate healers, and I tell them everything because it is a personal, private relationship all to benefit you–a great change from your typical western doctor. Ask your friends for suggestions about acupuncturists they rely on–you may be surprised how many people use acupuncture.
Please keep up the great work you do, Ty, and please keep adding alternative treatments in the information you provide in the fight against cancer. There are many, such as homeopathy, bio-feedback, and reflexology in addition to acupuncture that keep your immune system humming and help fight cancer.
Rich Fleischauer says
I’ve been doing acupuncture every month for years. I have two herniated disc in my L4,L5 and during the winter months many years ago my back would ache. My Chinese acupuncturist takes the ache away.
Ethel Huizar says
Rich, do you do anything else for your back pain besides acupuncture, or does acupuncture really take care of it completely?
Leotien Parlevliet says
I always make use of Acupressure, which you can easily do yourself with the right information. I´m doing it to improve my eyesight and to reduce the tinnitus
Hi Mike, I think your acupuncturist may be damaged too! Also I get the feeling you already know what you would prefer to do but I would encourage you to try another acupuncturist as I was going to a Chinese Dr without much improvement and have tried another and his treatment is working. If you don’t feel an improvement in 3 sessions then try another again. Only extreme illness needs continual treatment, so many nerve pains that I’ve had have been fixed in `1 or 2 sessions and lasted for several years before I had to go again. Best wishes, don’t give up, you’ll get constipated and sick from narcotics and stuck on them until you hang out.
Adam- Where are you located? I would like to learn more about your treatments for optimal health. – Liz
Natalie Griepp says
NAC or N- Acetylcystine helps with over active and under active nerves. It balances them. I would start with taking 500/600mg a day and work up to 500/600mg 3x a day. Also there are pain creams with capsicum that is best for nerve pain.
Great post Ty! Yes, Acupuncture helps so many people with pain issues, much better to start with acupuncture than the opioids which increase pain perception and mutate the endorphin receptors in the brain among tons other bad side effects. Opioids are needed in some cases, but, glad to see more buzz around healthy alternatives to drugs, especially when not needed!
Margaret Looby says
I’m sure this is one of the many alternative treatments to be more helpful than previously known, especially since the beginning of this series. I have learned so much. My biggest problem has turned out to be finding a good or recommended doctor of functional medicine in my area. I have called, visited & interviewed the few I could find. I have been very disappointed. It’s hard to move ahead with a specific treatment, like acupuncture without trust. Especially if there isn’t hope for a complete resolution of chronic illness. I desperately need this help. If anyone can suggest a practitioner in northeast NJ, I would appreciate the help. I have researched organizations for suggestions as well, I don’t seem to be landing in a good spot. HELP!
Debra Bragg says
Hello Ty and Charlene
We have been following you around Asia and throughly enjoying your presentation and all the amazing information.
A few episodes ago there was information on acupuncture in four key locations that resulted in cancer cells being excreted in the urine. I can not remember all the details – which cancers, which country, which doctor/clinic. I’m wondering if you have any articles about this.
Thank you so much for all your awesome work.
