Re: Acupuncture

I go to an acupuncturist who has helped me a lot for respiratory allergies and joint pain. I also, however, have mildly elevated bp, and it has not gone down, though she says that often her patients' bp does go down with regular acupuncture. Of course, maybe mine would be a lot higher without her help.

Can you tell me more about your son's ear infections? My husband has had two long colds and an ear infection that has lasted for months. Primary care doc and ENT have given him a total of 4 rounds of antiobiotics. I cannot talk him so far into seeing my acupuncturuist.
