The newly published book entitled "Maya and Friends Visit the Acupuncturist" does just that, explains how Chinese Medicine works to a kid. Husband and Wife team, Samara and Troy White, tackled this project together. The episode today talks about their adventure into Children's book writing and illustrating... Bringing Maya and acupuncture to life on paper. Yet, MD Anderson's Integrative Medicine Center looks at a treatment method 3,000 years in the making. ACUPUNCTURE Dr. Mary K Garcia is leading these scientific inquires. She started her first study in 1978 with a simple and specific question: "Does acupressure increase test taking scores in nursing students". 40 years later Dr. Garcia joins the show today as she reviews her current findings on acupuncture for the treatment of xerostomia caused by radiation and chemo induced peripheral neuropathy.
