The basic foundation for healthy living is sleeping the required amount of time, breathing fresh air, drinking clean, pure water, exercising on a regular basis and eating sufficient organic fruits, vegetables and lean protein. When our bodies are out of balance due to a lack of any of the above, acupuncture can assist in bringing the body back to a healthy condition.
