Living in a dry climate, such as the Arizona desert, can be beneficial for people who suffer from lung related ailments such as Asthma or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

Patients who suffer from asthma, COPD, emphysema, or chronic Bronchitis can benefit from acupuncture. Phoenix naturopathic doctors can use acupuncture in addition to, or in place of, over the counter and prescription medications, in order to promote relaxation.

Relief from restricted airways can allow individuals to enjoy normal daily activities again.
