Folks have been asking lately why they continue to catch cold or come down with a flu now and then even when they're really doing their best to live properly. They watch their diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly, monitor their stress levels, try not to worry too much, even practice meditation or a mind/body discipline. Some may imagine, I suppose, that the human's natural state of being is eternal optimal health...
Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Sometimes I think I shouldn't get sick or become injured if I do everything right and try to live in a healthy way....and if I do become sick or injured, what did I do wrong?

These multiplicities account for the variety of ways in which psychic and physiological phenomena manifest in the human body and help to define the medical system as a whole...
Editor´s Note: This is an excellent video that combines a personal testimonial with scientific research. A Western MD is curious about Chinese medicine and how acupuncture works. He researches the theory behind this ancient practice, receives acupuncture treatments on his injured knee, undergoes fMRI to demonstrate the effect on the brain, and tests out the results. Watch and see what he thinks!
