Do you have a question?

Generally the effects of polio can be helped extensively with acupuncture and it is commonly treated. Treatment generally requires somewhat frequent visits over a longer period of time in most cases. You should try to find someone locally.

For self treatment (but you should discuss the appropriateness of this directly with your practitioner) moxabustion on ST 36 bilaterally and CV 6 can often be helpful.
