Acupuncture is an effective tool in treating chronic pain, much better than opioids!, and is starting to be taken seriously by the biomedical community.
aafp.org A new meta-analysis published in the Journal of Pain has found that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of chronic pain, which may have implications for the way family physicians treat patients with this condition.

A good article on Nettles from an eastern and western herbal perspective.

Have you ever heard the myth “Our genes predict our health”?
Yes, that’s right – myth. In the past we have blamed our genes for the outcome of our health. We were told we’re victims to what we’re born with. But actually that just isn’t true. Everything you thought you knew about how your genes work has been completely changed. Your genes are not fixed and you are no longer the victim, but the creator.

“Being a doctor is very special because you have the opportunity to save a life. Being a pediatrician, for me, is the most important because you can save the life of a child and help a family who is scared, and sick with worry.”

Some reasons why taraxacum is the maximum.
Dandelion is used throughout the world. Native Americans applied its juice externally to snake bites. Ayurvedic practitioners use it for dysentery, fever, vomiting, and as an anti-poison. The leaves are grown as a vegetable in Europe and eaten when young in the spring (they are less bitter then – add olive oil and lemon juice) to help clear winter’s excesses and prevent spring’s colds and flu.
Of course my favorite use of dandelion is still what I learned as a child – picking the flowers when gone to seed and blowing their white parachutes off the stem. To me this is a wonderful metaphor – the plant transforming like a snake that sheds its skin and then reseeds to start their lives anew. May this wonderful plant continue to mellow the angry folk and heal many others!

"So for a long time I've been speculating on the potentially synergistic effects of Floatation + Acupuncture. I mean, they're both amazing in their own right, but sometimes in Acupuncture sessions I have patients who can't quite get comfortable on the table because of their chronic or acute pain. Or perhaps they are easily distracted by the construction noises outside. And with floating, sometimes it takes a while to get relaxed and turn off the mind when you're in the tank. So, I thought, why not use them together and see what happens? And it works, it works well."
