Then, he developed a complication — his body stopped processing the methadone and he overdosed. He switched to non-opioid medication for pain. His wife, Donna Busch, a retired nurse, suggested he try acupuncture. And that's how Gary Busch and Gauthier met.

And after a couple of sessions, he said he felt improvement in his pain level. "There was some type of change in my neuropathy," he said. "It kind of calmed it a little bit, calmed the pain." Before long the combination of his new non-opioid medication and acupuncture had taken him from an 8 or 9 on the pain scale — with 10 being the most severe on the pain scale — to a 4 or 5. "It's really changed my quality of life,'' he said.

The items were found during a search at the Alicante-Elche Airport when 180 grams of marihuana were discovered as part of a random inspection. Officers were drawn to a small box that was destined for a northern European country, and as they opened the package found two small pineapple figures made from plaster and gold in colour. But what at first appeared to be an innocent pair of objects ended up showing its hidden contents after going through an X-ray machine. More detailed examination showed the base appearing to be loose and when it was opened several dried flowers dropped out but they were only there to cover the strong and noticeable smell of marihuana that was inside sealed plastic bags. The Guardia Civil is now investigating the sender of the https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2016/08/08/theres-no-evidence-show-cupping-works-why-so-popular/88432132/ shipment for alleged drug trafficking and are checking to see whether any more similar packages have been sent from the same source. © No part of this web site may be reproduced without written permission from the publishers.
