The main difference between western and eastern medicine is that western medicine is scientifically proven to work. Eastern medicine may be said by some to work but does not have the backing of real science. Since acupuncture has not been a proven method for any affliction and is not held to the same standards as scientifically effective methods/medicine, it cannot be considered scientifically sound and is therefore considered Eastern Medicine.

My ears have medicince in them and i need to pop them in order to be able to hear!!!! HELP ME !!!!!!


I know the feeling, but it's best to let the medicine soak in and dry. The best time to put medicine in your ears is at night right when you're about to go to sleep. That way, hearing isn't an issue.
Hope this helps and get well soon!
