Today, Kristen talks about what TCM is and the training and credentialing behind it. There have been studies done showing that acupuncture can be more effective than morphine for some kinds of pain, but Kristen also dives into other diseases that have been successfully treated and managed with acupuncture.

 

We also talk about herbalism and how we know who to trust when it comes to getting advice on herbs. Kristen talks about some common and safe herbal treatments that you can use.
