I have posted on hear before trying to get some information on acupuncture. I like many others on here have fried saliva glands due to radiation. I am now three years and three months post treatment and basically have no saliva other than the thick ropy type. Yes chewing gum, tic-tacs, biotene gel for dry mouth and a couple other things I have tried create temporary saliva. I know there are a couple on here that have had some success with acupuncture and I know it may be a long shot but I am willing to try. What I would like to know is there certain ones who perform acupuncture that can only do this or can any acupuncturist do this. Also will your medical insurance pay for this and if not how expensive is the normal treatment? I know many doctors if not most probably look at this as a form of quackary but who cares, I belive my doctor still has saliva. Please if you can give me some help e-mail me a firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance for any information I can get.
