I had an experience with acupuncture in 2007 in South Korea. I was suffering with a severe case of diarrhea derived from eating tainted shell fish. The episode lasted eight days. The medicines given me by western physicians did not work. A very kind Korean student took me to see a traditional Korean doctor who practiced acupuncture. He treated me for two days. The diarrhea stopped the evening after my first treatment. I cannot prove a causal link between my recovery and the doctors treatment, the diarrhea episode may have run its course, but I to this day believe that his treatment, which included placing needles in my hand and foot, placing a burning ash on my foot and hot rocks inside a cloth casing behind my backed, helped.
