Inflammation seems to be at least a contributing factor in many health problems. So it's important to keep inflammation in check. Acupuncture and herbs is a natural, safe and effective way to do this without the adverse side effects of drugs such as prednisone. In Chinese medicine inflammation is called heat and there are many acupuncture points for clearing heat in the body. My favorite point for this (since you asked) is LI11 (Quchi). But that is just one of many. There are many Chinese herbs for cutting inflammation, in fact the popular tumeric, used by droves of people for this purpose, is actually a Chinese herb called jiang huang. And there are many others that actually work even better than tumeric. Cutting inflammation in the body is just one of the many health promoting benefits of adding acupuncture and herbs into your health regimen.
