:)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.

Regards

Sky:)
