Many turn to acupuncture as an alternative medicine to aid illness and relieve stress. This treatment is even covered by some insurance companies.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture may sound new to some, but the Chinese have practiced this form of alternative medicine for more than 2,000 years to relieve pain and treat a variety of conditions.

Choosing an acupuncturist is similar to choosing other health care providers. Make sure the person has the training and experience to treat your condition and is someone with whom you're comfortable.

If the naturopath also has the MD credential then every plan will cover them. They choose to take insurance or not, all providers have to sign up with insurance plans for reimbursement. Unfortunately if they are a Doctor of Naturopathy, without other medical credentials you will have a difficult time finding coverage. An MD typically goes through 4 years of undergrad, 4 years of Medical school, 3 years of residency and then potentially 2 - 4 years of specialty training on top of that. Not many Naturopaths go through that type of education. MDs also have to work on cadavers, some other health care practitioners do this as well, but not many. Naturopaths offer valuable services. If you have a Naturopath MD in mind, then it is simple because they will have registered with insurance companies to accept payments. They will know what plans they accept payment from. As a pharmacist one of my classmates in addition to a doctorate in pharmacy also had a doctorate in that area. As a pharmacist we are also not covered by most insurance plans to have a "practice" reimbursement. We work on a fee-for-service basis or contract with specific plans or employers to offer their people our services. We work with individuals and provide their providers the information about our consults.

Some naturopaths, dieticians, pharmacists, chiropractors, and acupuncturists work within a physician practice - this is sometimes referred to as an integrated or integrative model. The fee for a naturopath is most often "fee for service."   I hope this helps, best of luck finding the practitioner you are seeking.

I've seen him several times and my stress headaches have declined improving my overall health state. I feel like my mind is more focused and I feel more relaxed than ever. Dr. Zurawin has started treating my son for ADHD as well. I also noticed my son was more calm right after the treatment. We continue treatment for future ailments with

Dr.
Alexander City Acupuncturists Provider Name Locked
is very friendly. They tried to sell you a bunch of vitamins and supplements as well. I am sure it is all part of the treatment but it got very expensive, very quick. He does good work. I have several friends that use him as well and everyone swears by him. We have never had a problem getting an appointment.

I have MS and there have been time that I have gone to see her and I could barley walk. After a thirty minute treatment I literally bounce out of her office. She truly understands her patients, because she was a cardiologist in China, so she truly understands her patients needs. She truly understands her patients needs. She also specializes in infertility. She has a (wall of babies) and it keeps growing from her specialties.

It’s been great and I really enjoyed them. I stopped going essentially because I am busy and I have every intention to continue to use their service when money and time allow. I haven’t used any acupuncture service since then. I was seeing for ongoing issues and didn’t have time to follow up.

I think the first treatment produced some limited decrease in leg weakness and I could do a little better on the heel walk gross motor exam.
The second treatment did not produce any greater success.
I chalk this up to a need to see a medical doctor for better relief.
I would go see him again for other symptoms as they may occur before considering more invasive procedures.
Having said that, those needles do hurt more than a thought they would but it sure beats surgery if it works.

, I always have a greater sense of well-being and more energy after the session. The treatments are not in any way painful or uncomfortable. In fact, I often have a 15 or 20 minute nap, waking up to feel better than I often do after a full nights rest! No explanation for this, but has happened too often to be a coincidence.

His office is no frills, limited paperwork to complete on followup visits, ample and free parking, open Saturdays until 1 or 2 pm. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr.

I don't doubt that
Alexander City Acupuncturists Provider Name Locked
is helping people. He just didn't work for me. He only works on one issue at a time (blatantly refusing), I saw him for months with no improvement. He makes you take herbal pills, you're supposed to take them all day long, and they're $20 a bottle, and that did nothing. On top of this I just got tired of his attitude. I don't care to know his religious and political affiliations and feel he is unprofessional, greedy and arrogant. He works minimal hours. I am now seeing someone who works on more than one issue at a time, utilizes other methods besides acupuncture, and has relieved some of my pain.
