2012 WFAS International Congress and Workshop on Acupuncture
16th – 18th November 2012 in Bandung, Indonesia.
- The information here and what I presented sometimes may rattle your beliefs as ‘everyone’ knows .. . and the problem is often that the Emperor has no clothes on.
We are looking in the wrong place and asking the wrong questions to get the right result. This is more and more prevalent the more acupuncture training is becoming immersed in RCT and evidence based medicine – forgetting that we are unique, and that traditional medicines work WITH not against by forcing the body.
We could ask ourselves, ‘is taking the lead of the orthodox medicine which if it were so useful, would have no need to investigate alternatives’ useful? Possibly we need the fresh air of the more traditional and practical/common sense approaches.
