——— NIH Issues Consensus Statement
In early November, 1997, a National Institutes of Medicine committee of experts issued consensus statement to give their medical endorsement to the use of acupuncture in the treatment of a variety of conditions. These conditions include: Pain Following Surgery, Nausea Associated with Chemotherapy & Pregnancy, Tennis Elbow, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Dental Pain Following Surgery.

The 12-member Consensus panel also listed a variety of other conditions that they felt, based on current research, would benefit from acupuncture in association with contemporary biomedical medicine. These include: Stroke Rehabilitation, Headache, Addiction, Menstrual Cramps, Fibromyalgia, Low Back Pain, Asthma.

The panel’s report said, "The data in support of acupuncture are as strong as those for many accepted Western medical therapies.''It's time to take it [acupuncture] seriously," said the panel's chairman, Dr. David J. Ramsey of the University of Maryland. "There are a number of situations where it really does, in fact, work--the evidence is very clear-cut. It has few side effects, and is less invasive than many other things we do."
