acupunture
Special Note:
It is to be noted that just like other therapeutic modalities, acupuncture has its share of failures; not everybody responds to it. However, it does not leave the patients burdened with many of the side effects and suffering from the ineffective drugs and/or unsuccessful surgeries.

Another strength of acupuncture is that it has remarkably few side effects, other than occasional minor bruising, infection and rare cases of fainting. I have done about 5,000 plus procedures since 1996, and have not had any significant problems. This contrasts sharply with the potential harmful effect of most medicines we use in modern medicine. It is now well documented that prescribed medications are a very important cause of morbidity and mortality. However, major problems may occur in untrained hands e.g. perforation of internal organs, and epidemics of hepatitis have occurred in England and Israel due to the use of unsterilized needles by unscrupulous practitioners.
