This is one of my family's favorite soups. It's easy to make and every bite is packed with protein, vitamins and minerals that are soothing to the digestive system. It's the perfect soup to eat when recovering from an illness or surgery.

Conventional medicine is great at some things, like emergency surgery. However, it often fails at treating more common problems, like frequent headaches or poor sleep.
Here are five common conditions that are poorly treated/managed by conventional medicine:
Acupuncture excels at treating these five conditions because it gets to the root of the problem. Conventional medicine only offers interventions (pharmaceutical or surgical) to relieve the symptoms of these condition, while acupuncture delivers long-term relief.
