ADVANTAGES OF COLLABORATIVE ACUPUNCTURE OR ACUPRESSURE REGARDING THE SIDE EFFECTS OF MEDICATIONS/THERAPIES
This bibliography extracted recently from the international literature should have pragmatic influence for all health professionals as well as pharmaceutical companies. So many patients terminate their use of prescription medications of all kinds because of side effects. Now, the international literature contains clinical reports wirh a common theme demonstrating that different forms of acupuncture are useful to minimize or even eliminate side effects of many medications. Physicians utilizing clinical wisdom (collaborating with an acupuncture colleague) to avoid masking important warning signs, now can prescribe medications knowing that many more patients will get the benefits of their prescriptions. At times, the reader will need to look at the entire article to capture the details of this theme. The articles do not focus on acupuncture as a substitute for allopathic medication but, insread, address acupuncture facilitating the use of a much smaller dose of medication andlor dealing pragmatically with side effects of the allopathies.
