Consider What the Who’s WHO in Health is Saying about Acupuncture
Acupuncture is accomplished by inserting very thin needles just below the skin, to channel the life energy, or Qi, that runs along meridians at specific points in the body. Millions have benefited. Thousand of years have proven what we are now hearing from the WHO (World Health Organization).

At this juncture, when people and animals alike are unhealthy, overweight, and just feeling bad, many are discovering the veterinary benefits of acupuncture. It has proven to be helpful in battling discomfort associated with muscoskeletal disease, injuries, cancer; urology complications, including urologic syndrome, urinary retention, incontinence, and cystitis; nervous system disorders, like vestibular syndrome and seizures; and digestive system problems such as colitis, diarrhea, and inflammatory bowel disease.
Europe and The Americas may see acupuncture as a relatively new treatment, used primarily to complement modern medicine, but history will show that the Chinese have been practicing acupuncture, dietary medicine, massage, and herbal therapy for thousands of years – as a vehicle for primary care. The first recorded veterinary acupuncture applications were products of the period of the Shang Dynasty, around 1700 B.C. However, some experts surmise that its origins stretch as far back as 2,000 or 3,000 B.C.
What the Who’s WHO in Medicine is Saying
Here’s what the WHO (World Health Organization) has said about acupuncture:
“…acupuncture analgesia can be regarded as the method of choice for treating many chronically painful conditions."
Acupuncture is comparable with morphine…but without the adverse effects of morphine, such as dependency."
Need more proof? Call your veterinarian and ask if he or she is trained in acupuncture.
p.s. Bank your possibilities. Even if your pet is healthy, young, strong, and not in need of pain relief or any other sort treatment, consider this: Someday, your cat may fall victim to urological disease. Or, your dog might develop a debilitating bout with arthritis. Why add a search for a veterinarian trained in Chinese Medicine to your list of things-to-do when your pet is suffering? If your regular veterinarian is prepared to deliver certified Chinese holistic treatment, you can continue your patronage of his or her practice…where you and your pet already feel at home.
p.p.s. It’s difficult to deny what thousands of years, and the world’s most accomplished minds, have taught us: That holistic medicine, rendered from hands that have been trained by the masters, strongly counters the effectiveness of any chemical drug…without side effects, dependency, or the possibility of interaction with other treatments.
