While Western Medicine and science have evolved together to offer us incredible breakthroughs in life-saving treatments, not all medical traditions have had such a close relationship with science. Herbalism, homeopathy, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, among others, are rooted in traditional cultures and spirituality. Acupuncture is a technique of TCM that has been used for more than 2000 years. With over 4000 studies conducted on the efficacy of acupuncture, can science help us figure out whether acupuncture works, and if so, how?
In this 13th instalment of Biohack the World, we’ll take a close look at what science says about TCM, Ayurveda and associated modalities and why the results continue to bewilder scientists and Western medical practitioners alike. What is it about the movement of Qi energy in and around our bodies that works to keep us balanced and resonating with the world around us?
The show starts at 7, but please join us at 6pm for the BioMatch Social Hour. There will be networking opportunities, product demos, keto/paleo treats, free swag, and the nerdiest health conversations galore.
