As this article began to form, it became quickly apparent the scope of this topic is much broader than could possibly be covered in one post – one could actually spend years researching and writing a series of books. By the time the later volumes were finished and published, the early volumes would likely (hopefully!) need updates and editing because of new research and advances in care. Autoimmune and Chronic Inflammatory disease are quite possibly the next epidemic in health care – according to Amy Myers M.D. the incidence of autoimmune disease has tripled over the past 50 years (3)!

Wellness is more than the absence of pain
"I have been a patient at Pacific Center of Health for several years. The level of care I receive has been excellent. I was having a great deal of difficulty with asthma and the side effects of medications. After getting a series of treatments, my asthma condition cleared up completely. It has been about five years since that occurred and I am happy to report that I am still asthma free! I try to have acupuncture treatments about every six weeks to maintain the good health that I now have. I also enjoy the treatments a great deal, it puts me into a state of incredibly deep relaxation and I walk out of the session feeling revitalized." ~ Anne F.
