Acupuncture works….but how?

I am looking forward to reading this book by one of my favorite authors, the physician Sherwin Nuland. In his book “The Uncertain Art: Thoughts on a Life in Medicine,”, he visits China, with fascinating results.

“He travels to China to determine firsthand if acupuncture is an effective technique. After witnessing two operations and speaking to the president of the Shanghai Medical University, who himself had undergone two thyroid operations with acupuncture, Dr. Nuland comes away a believer — even though the procedure “has still not been explained in terms acceptable to most orthodox Western scientists using orthodox Western investigative methods.”

” …he leads readers into “astonishing” realms where science provides no explanation.”

To go through surgery without pain is a pretty convincing test.
