Acupuncture is a form of alternative medicine and a component of traditional Chinese medicine
Acupuncture points are believed to stimulate the central nervous system. This, in turn, releases chemicals into the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These biochemical changes may stimulate the body's natural healing abilities and promote physical and emotional well-being.
Plants, herbs, and ethnobotanicals have been used since the early days of humankind and are still used throughout the world for health promotion and treatment of disease. As an alternative therapy in treating mental health and addiction herbs are used to balance and to boost the immune system and to return the body to a state of natural balance so that it can heal itself.
