It is generally not necessary to inform your doctor that you are having acupuncture treatment. However, if you have recently had surgery or are being scheduled for surgery, or if you are currently taking several different types of medication, or are being treated for a current health issue by your GP, it may be a good idea to inform your doctor that you are planning to have acupuncture.
Successful acupuncture treatment can often result in the patient being able to reduce or completely stop taking their prescribed medication, (depending on the illness). This should never be done without first consulting your GP and should always be done with their guidance.
Regardless of your medically diagnosed condition acupuncture and natural medicine has something to offer.
