It's generally a poor idea to discuss CF with a patient; even the general concept can get people thinking too much, getting stuck in their heads and intellectualizing their treatments when they should just experience them as part of the Tao. 

Saying things like that still feels like a bit of a cop-out to me, but I don't know any better words to describe it than the quasi-religious mysticism that's come down to us from Asia. I'm not the least bit religious; faith doesn't make much sense to me, conceptually. I feel what the needles do to me,and I observe the various levels of effect once the treatments are done. I mean, hell, I don't crave wheat any more! The thought of eating it makes me feel vaguely ill, even, and that is something that happened after a little more than a year of acupuncture. It might not sound like much to some, but to me, it's huge, revelatory, a sea change I never thought I'd experience.

Some things to be Earthy-grateful for: my parents, Jacqui and Gabriel, my support system which is vast and strong and which I must strive continually to deserve.
