This is an introduction to the channels (or meridians) for acupuncture students. If you were taking and acupuncture series in a school, this is what the first lecture might look like.

eastern medicine IS the main stream and allopathic is the real quackery
My problem with traditional medicine is the explanation, or rather the lack of explanation.
If you give someone a drug you can explain: ok this bacteria is causing that wich results in this kind of pain, and this medicine is binding to that protein changing its structure here resulting in bacteria-cell-death.
But acupuncture is based on the belief of "Qi", and thats more of a philosophy or belief than actual medicine, I mean there is no proof for some "life essence" inside you
You mean just because science can't prove means it's not real? LOL! For some, intelligence is their sanctuary. Intelligence and science is good but I hope they open up to faith as well.
yes it actually works for most people, I see results in my patients on a daily basis
That chart in 4:40 is very misleading. Pay great attention to the Y axis; it's FOLD INCREASE, not NUMBER OF. So the number of acupuncture publications could have gone up from 2 to 10 (5 fold) in the 20 years, but this does NOT mean that it has "Outpaced actually the amount of research that has been done in biomedicine". Biomedical research could have gone up from 20000 to 40000, with the research budgets in the billions of US dollars.
In summary, that chart shows jack all.
