  1. part one
    I'm sorry to hear about your pain. If I were you, I'd try acupuncture. My husband suffers from chronic lower back pain, and traditional medicine never helped. Last year, he started seeing an acupuncturist, and it has changed his life. Since then, he has been practically pain-free. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese remedy that helps relieve all kinds of pain. Fine needles are inserted into the patient's skin, and this helps stimulate the body's energy. It treats all kinds of pain, like toothache and headaches. Practitioners have also been using acupuncture to treat depression for thousands of years.
  2. part two
    Have you ever tried herbs? Herbs are the best way to treat and prevent everyday health problems. All sorts of plants can be used to make remedies. A warm cup of chamomile cures stomach aches, while slices of fresh ginger work for nausea and migraines. My sister uses evening primrose for a skin rash and eczema. Instead of daily vitamin tablets, I take ginseng to give me energy. Herbal remedies have existed since the ancient civilizations of Africa, China and Egypt.
  3. part three
    You ought to look into reflexology. This is a type of massage therapy that helps the body heal itself. It originated in Egypt, China and India thousands of years ago. My practitioner massages the nerve endings in my feet, hands and ears, and this has a calming effect on the entire body. Research has shown that this therapy is good for treating migraines and sleep disorders.
  4. part four
    Why don't you look into reiki? I've been feeling depressed since my girlfriend left me last year, and traditional doctors haven't helped much. So, I recently decided to try reiki, and the results are amazing. The Japanese developed this spiritual treatment in the 19th century. Practitioners heal your spiritual energy by placing their hands gently over your body. Then, the spiritual energy heals the physical body. Patients also use reiki for arthritis and anxiety.
