RESEARCH: ACUPUNCTURE IS MORE EFFECTIVE AT RELIEVING PAIN THAN MORPHINE!
2.1 million people in America are addicted to drugs like morphine – the most commonly prescribed of all opioid painkillers. Even those who aren’t addicted deal with side effects that range from depression to nausea, headaches and loss of appetite. If only there were a better way to treat severe chronic pain. Oh wait, there is – acupuncture. It might seem a bit counter-intuitive, what with the needles and all, but the ancient Chinese practice has actually been proven to provide pain relief benefits that surpass those of morphine.
