Patient discussion about proof

Q. Is there any proof that acupuncture would be helpful for dealing with depression? I’m working in a multinational company and I suffer from depression. I feel the side effects of the meds being prescribed by my doctor. I like to try with acupuncture. Is there any proof that acupuncture would be helpful for dealing with depression?

A. Hi, for some cases acupuncture is good but not for all. Besides therapy and acupuncture exercise helps with depression. The problem with it is that it appears to be difficult to get depressed people to start exercising. They are depressed, after all. But exercise could and should be considered alternative medicine that actually works.

Q. What kind of dogs are considered "low allergy" breeds? My son really wants a dog and I am allergic. Not severely but... Promised to look into getting a low allergy one. Appreciate any info including how to source free/low cost as money is tight.

A. Take in mind that there are also other criteria for choosing a dog. Some of them need special grooming and some aren't really great with kids, but you can check out these breeds and more at www. dogbreedfacts.com. As for myself, I have had several Bichon Frises, and they can be great with kids and other pets, and they are hardy and very, very intelligent!! They arent too big either! Good luck on your hunt!
