The unbearable pain she felt up to that point started to subside. But this happened in quite an unusual manner. Initially feeling as if her head was a bottle, topsy-turvy and filled with nothing but pain, she started to feel as if someone has uncorked that bottle and the pain simply started to pour down and dissipate slowly downwards. She felt this sensation throughout her entire body. The absence of pain felt so great that she kept relaxing further and further. She finally relaxed so much that she ended up falling asleep! The acupuncturist, seeing her doze off, let her be for a few minutes. That was 25 years ago and, AMAZINGLY, from that day on, she never suffered from another migraine headache.
However, the pain along the spine that initially motivated my grandmother to seek an acupuncturist’s help was not successfully treated with acupuncture. Her back pain was treated successfully by another practitioner of alternative medicine. A simple old lady, a natural chiropractor widely known as gifted in rearranging and fixing dislocated bones, fixed her back.
This is what happened when my grandmother went to see her… The old lady asked her to lie down. She then performed a few controlled movements placing her hands on my grandmother’s back. My grandmother says she did, in fact, feel as if something was being rearranged in her back.
Whatever the supporters or the skeptics of these methods say, one fact remains: clinics and polyclinics were powerless before my grandmother health problems and alternative medicine cured them. Period.
I do not wish to criticize modern medicine, I only want to point out that we should question the credibility of the often narrow view taken by modern scientists, especially their derogatory stance toward alternative therapies - the workings of which science cannot yet fully explain.
In my next article I'll venture to some of the other, darker and inexplicable phenomena…
