Food For Thought

A collection of quotes related to acupuncture.

It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has."

-Hippocrates (460-377 B.C.)


"Most over-the-counter and almost all prescribed drug treatments merely mask symptoms or control health problems or in some way alter the way organs or systems such as the circulatory system work. Drugs almost never deal with the reasons why these problems exist, while they frequently create new health problems as side effects of their activities."

-John R. Lee, M.D.


While acupuncture represents a legacy of concepts that predate Western civilization, as a contemporary health care system it also represents a synthesis of continuously evolving scientific and technological developments which provides us with new tools to meet current clinical challenges.

Dennis Tucker, Ph.D., L.Ac.
Nevada City, California


"When health is absent Wisdom cannot reveal itself, Art cannot become manifest, Strength cannot be exerted, Wealth is useless and Reason is powerless."

-Herophilies, 300 B.C.


"The next major advance in the health of the American people will be determined by what the individual is willing to do for himself."

-John Knowles, Former President of the Rockefeller Foundation


"Don't ask the doctor, ask the patient."

-Yiddish proverb


"I think that if we had more acupuncture and less AZT [an AIDS medication], we would see a qualitative improvement in these patients' health."

William Michael Cargile, B.S., D.C., F.I.A.C.A.


"Even in acute abdominal problems, acupuncture can be used before surgery to arrest the condition before it progresses further."

Maoshing Ni, D.O.M., Ph.D., L.Ac. Vice-President of Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Santa Monica, California

"There is evidence that acupuncture influences the production of and distribution of a great many neurotransmitters and neuromodulators, and that this in turn alters the perception of pain."
