October 24th is Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day. To celebrate, National University of Health Sciences is offering free oriental medical consultations to new patients at the NUHS Whole Health Center in Lombard.
The free consultations, offered October 24-31 by appointment only, will include:
Oriental medicine is the oldest codified system of medicine in the world and is safe and effective for the entire family. The World Health Organization recognizes more than 300 diseases and illnesses that acupuncture and oriental medicine can effectively treat and/or prevent, including: cardiovascular issues, digestive problems, respiratory conditions, pain, behavioral conditions, as well as men's and women's health issues.
"Many of our patients find success with acupuncture and oriental medicine, even after other health care options have failed to give them the results they are looking for," says Dr. Hyundo Kim, chief clinician for National University's acupuncture and oriental medicine program.
The NUHS Whole Health Center has expert clinicians and interns who are highly trained in traditional oriental medicine and acupuncture. The university offers masters degrees in both acupuncture and oriental medicine at its Lombard campus.
