Natural pain relief as effective as morphine

When New York Times journalist Reston went to China in 1971, he was in for a surprise. While in the country, he needed an emergency operation to remove his appendix. The astonishing fact about this surgical procedure was that the operation was done without anaesthesia as we know it. Chinese physicians used acupuncture as the only means of pain control.

Following the articles and video footage, many scientists were trilled by the opportunities acupuncture could provide to understand how the brain deals with pain. And even though acupuncture was not the main subject of studies (pain was), these studies uncovered acupuncture’s power to reduce pain.

Acupuncture offers a great relief for pain syndromes. In fact, it is as effective as morphine. For this reason it’s commonly integrated in many pain clinics in Europe.
