You are very welcome!
Since you sounded most interested in acupuncture, here is a wonderful resource online: NCCAM, National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine. They tell you about the procedure, and how to find a practitioner in your area (good for your parents to know what credentials to look for).
To find a practitioner in CAM, you can:
- contact a nearby hospital or medical school for guidance
- contact a professional organization, regulatory agency, or licensing board for the type of practitioner you are seeking.
You can also search the EmpowHer site for great information in a particular treatment. The EmpowHer's acupuncture site is loaded with info.
Be sure to come back to EmpowHer, and ask any further questions that you may have, after looking into some of the options. We have some medical experts whom we can ask, if you have more detailed questions about treatment options.
It sounds like your mom has been through a lot, and wouldn't it be great if one of the alternatives could help several of her conditions?!
