ACUPUNCTURE AND ORIENTAL MEDICINE IN THE 21st CENTURY
Modern AOM is the coalescence of ancient wisdom and modern science. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine are a vital and thriving part of the modern healthcare industry. AOM is growing, and growing fast, due to its affordability and effectiveness. AOM can successfully diagnose and treat nearly any non-emergency condition. Acupuncture is based on the same anatomy and basic physiology as modern "western" medicine...no magical energies. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine are the oldest and most time-tested of any medical discipline on earth. Let us show you what it can do for you. Jacob Godwin, EAMP provides Oriental medicine and acupuncture in Spokane, WA.
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Routinely Out-Perform "Standard Care"
interesting. If you look at the middle of the graph, you’ll see that more people
answered that they were ‘satisfied’ with medical treatment. This alone might
make you think medical treatment is preferred. However, look at how many people
answered that they are ‘extremely satisfied’ with acupuncture vs. medical
treatment…huge difference! What would the difference between ‘satisfied’ and
‘extremely satisfied’ be for you?
skyrocketing healthcare costs, acupuncture is here to not only treat our
individual health concerns, but also relieve a massive national financial
burden. Acupuncture in Spokane costs less, impacts our environment less, and often does a better job than ‘standard care’.

WHAT ARE SOME ADVANTAGES ACUPUNCTURE AND OM HAVE OVER ‘STANDARD CARE’? We may have the most advanced disease management system in the world, but the US is far behind most other industrialized countries when it comes to health. The U.S. ranks 34th in the world in life expectancy and 29th for infant mortality. Of 13 countries in a recent comparison, the United States ranks an average of 12th (second from bottom) for 16 available health indicators (Starfield B. Primary Care: Balancing Health Needs, Services, and Technology. New York, NY: Oxford University Press; 1998.).
DID YOU KNOW THAT ORIENTAL MEDICINE, of which acupuncture is but one part, IS BASED ON ACCURATE MEDICAL THEORIES THAT ARE NOT AT ODDS WITH OUR MODERN MEDICAL SCIENCE? Ancient Chinese physicians were performing detailed dissections, measuring and weighing internal organs, mapping the cardiovascular system, describing complex physiological processes, and helping their patients live to their 80’s while Western physicians thought we were made up of "humors" and were dropping dead at 30 years old.
