    The U.S. National Institute of Health

    Hello Everyone,

    I would like to know there if the U.S. National Institute of Health is an govermental agency? Which department is it affiliated to?

    The U.S. National Institute of Health has endorsed acupuncture for treating certain types of nausea, vomiting an pain, such as the nausea sort of sickness that a patient suffers when given an anesthetic for surgery, or treated with chemotherapy, or the vomiting or nausea that accompanies pregnancy, or post-operative dental pain. We have come to the very clear-cut sort of decision that treatment under these circumstances really works.

    "The National Institutes of Health (NIH), a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, is the primary Federal agency for conducting and supporting medical research. Helping to lead the way toward important medical discoveries that improve people's health and save lives, NIH scientists investigate ways to prevent disease as well as the causes, treatments, and even cures for common and rare diseases. Composed of 27 Institutes and Centers, the NIH provides leadership and financial support to researchers in every state and throughout the world."

    More information available at the NIH website.
