Host Johnnette Williams welcomes new age researcher & blogger Sue Brinkmann as they talk about wacky things that distract from the faith. This week they discuss acupuncture. Acupuncture/acupressure is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and the belief that a universal life force known as chi runs through the body. Sue says there is virtually no scientific evidence to support its efficacy for anything other than nausea and some types of pain. When a needle causes the release of pain-suppressing endorphins and other chemicals in the body that lend relief to the sufferer. Johnnette and Sue also talk about this being the anniversary of the last vision at Fatima.
