Early treatment, but also is one content of prevention. In addition to the usual medical was advocating prevention, but also pay attention to before the onset of the beginning of symptoms revealed, truncated illness with acupuncture method, destroy it in the bud. Early prevention, not only effect is obvious, the prognosis is also should be noted that during this period, although the emphasis on disease prevention and moxibustion, but also mentioned acupuncture, or acupuncture combined with medicine. In acupuncture care, although more relevant health literature Jin and Tang Dynasties, but the content is still less acupuncture.

I need to lose 20 pounds, can you do that?
I need to lose 20 pounds, can you do it? People often mention such a request, the exact answer on the phone is: "I dont know", because I do not know the age, the health status, medical history, diet and life styles. So my answer is often: "Can you come to my office to let me see, ask a few questions, maybe I can answer your question." Then, even if it is to understand the disease, not guarantee to lose weight 20 pounds, and some it could even have a slimming effect. For example, there is a family history of obesity, diabetes has a long history, old age, overall physical condition is not good, and so, therefore, is the old saying goes, the treatment effect will be very different, because everyone's situation is not the same.

Is Insurance cover acupuncture?
Patient came to my acupuncture office, said they found my name on the list of insurance companies, after search online, found the insurance plan does not cover acupuncture, the patient will be surprised, because they found my name on the list of acupuncturist? Yes, my name in the insurance list, but your plan not cover acupuncture. So, if you need insurance company to pay the bills, acupuncturists need pass the credential check by the insurance company, also the patient's insurance plan needs to have acupuncture benefits. Only in this way, the insurance company will pay the claim.
Now, United Healthcare, BCBS, Cingna, they have some good package for acupuncture benefits, Aetna have some too.

What acupuncture can cure diseases?
Although acupuncture has been popular in the United States four decades, but still often someone ask this question, in China, acupuncture has been the presence of thousands of years, people still ask same question. And this also is not a easy question to answer, because acupuncture can cure many diseases, but not cure all disease. Acupuncture has a good effect on pain, which we already know, acupuncture for stree, fatigue, infertility, insomnia, etc., also has a good effect, which many people already know. But for health, enhance immunity, diabetes, high blood pressure etc, it is not a moment to see the benifits that have to do long-term treatment, in order to see some results, and sometimes can not see the positive effects, but to prevent or avoid the further deterioration of the condition. There are some individual cases, it can not be generalized, for example, there was a 92-year-old Russian woman, eye pain, eye doctor to check that the intraocular pressure is too high, in general, need surgery, but 92-year-old patient, surgery is not considered, so there is no special treatment. But only the first acupuncture treatment, then eyes it does not hurt anymore, then there is no relapse, the understanding of traditional Chinese medicine for high intraocular pressure is considered necessary to clear the meridians, the pressure come down naturally. Of course, this is only an individual case, do not pass on. So, perhaps it is more appropriate to ask, " I did such a disease can be treated with acupuncture?"
