Does acupuncture work?
By Tareq Abedin, MD
Acupuncture changed the way I practice medicine. My journey began a few weeks after my first successful treatment of my children’s allergies with homeopathy. I was stunned with the success of the homeopathic treatment, and was intrigued by the invitation from Harvard University’s school of medicine to take a yearlong class in traditional Chinese and Japanese acupuncture.
That year in Harvard I learned many lessons. I took the class to help patients with pain, however, I was stunned by successful treatments of severe hives and asthma that did not respond to conventional treatments. As I have maintained two separate Boards, one in Internal Medicine and one in Pediatrics, I had always thought I was a fairly well educated physician. Two of the important lessons I learned were that I really did not know as much about medicine and healing as I thought that I did, and more importantly came the sobering realization that modern medicine has only scratched the surface of the secrets of the human body.
At the time I took the class I myself had a horrible tennis elbow. I asked what is the acupuncture point that will treat the tennis elbow. With a look of disdain on his face he answered the question. He reacted that way because he understood that I was completely missing the point of acupuncture and the eastern philosophy of healing. Although there is a specific point that will help my tennis elbow, using that point was NOT the way to holistically treat my problem. Instead he was trying to teach me to use acupuncture to balance the body, and once the body is balanced the body itself would take care of the problem. The specific point for treating the elbow was a secondary treatment, not the primary treatment.
Over the next few months I began to think differently. It became a habit to treat the patient NOT the problem first. It became so much of a habit that without realizing what I was doing, I was also practicing standard western medicine with the same mind set. I started treating the whole patient rather than treating a specific problem. Only after attempting to restore the body to a sense of balance do I entertain treating a problem.
In the end, even if I were to never again use an acupuncture needle, the experience has completely changed my medical practice, and my philosophy towards the healing arts.
