Asthma

This is a story about a patient I had long ago. It was he who taught me to really tell the truth with patients, never to try and fake it! I know it makes me sound a rather dishonest sort of person, but when you start out in acupuncture you do not have the benefit of 4000 odd hours of clinical practice, so although you are trained to a basic level, there are many diseases and conditions that you have not really seen.
