Acupuncture has been practiced in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. Acupuncture involves stimulating specific points on the body. This is most often done by inserting thin needles through the skin, to cause a change in the physical functions of the body.

Research has shown that acupuncture reduces nausea and vomiting after surgery and chemotherapy. It can also relieve pain. Researchers don't fully understand how acupuncture works. It might aid the activity of your body's pain-killing chemicals. It also might affect how you release chemicals that regulate blood pressure and flow.

Nature Cure

Nature Cure or Naturopathy is a drugless system of treatment which recognizes the existence of vital curative forces or the Panch Mahabhuta (Five elements) within the body. It believes in treating the human body as a whole and removing the root cause of the diseases rather than treating individual parts or offering symptomatic remedies. Nature cure addresses the equilibrium of these elements and restores the ill body to health. Every element has a specific remedy and the degree of imbalance requires a combination of treatments.

Nature cure can, thus, be broadly defined as a system wherein human beings live in harmony with the principles of nature. These constructive principles are applicable on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes of living. Nature cure has great health promotive, disease preventive, curative and restorative potential.
