Can Acupuncture Help My Condition?


Acupuncture and Herbs Saved My Life!

I was 30 years old, happily married and had a good sales job; but felt like I was not completely fulfilled with my life; something was missing. After much self searching, I figured out that I wanted to have a family. I knew that my husband and I would be good parents and could give a child much love and a happy life. I had my beautiful baby girl when I was 32 years old. I felt like the luckiest girl alive. About 3 years later, I had to have some minor surgery, a D&C and had a fibroid removed, no big deal, I thought. All seemed to go very well, but, as soon as I got home I was sick. I got an infection from the surgery. My doctor immediately put me on a strong antibiotic for 5 days and I seemed ok after that. I still felt worn out and felt very blah, not really happy, like I should be after having my baby that I wanted so badly. I kept telling my doctor I didn’t feel right since the surgery. I felt down and tired all the time. But, since he could not find anything wrong with me, he just thought it was psychological or just emotional from having a child. I knew that was not the case. My life was perfect except for my health.

About a year later, I was having lunch with my sister and all of a sudden I had a horrible internal dizzy spell that I could not shake for about 5 minutes. She drove us home and I spent the next 3 days being shaky, dizzy and suffered major fatigue. That was the beginning of my journey to finding a way to get well again.

My dizzy spells would put me out for about 3 days. I would pretty much eat, sleep and try to act normal for my 3 year old daughter. She knew something was not right. But my husband did his best to distract her from being worried or feeling sorry for me.

I started going to specialist, general practice doctors, gynecologists, gastroenterologist, ear, nose and throat doctors, and internal medicine doctors. Anyone I could think of that might figure this out. I had an MRI, CAT scan, blood tests, allergy tests, you name it, and I had it. The results showing I was perfectly healthy. Meanwhile having 3 dizzy spells a week, followed by diarrhea, chronic fatigue, anxiety, heart palpitations. Mood swings, eating every 2 hours to feel alive, weight loss, and hot and cold flashes. I was getting a little scared. After 3 months of tests, I decided to try my chiropractor. But after 5 months, I felt like I stabilized and felt only a little better, so I kept on searching. He then sent me to a naturopathic doctor that put me on blood cleansing tinctures and a strict diet. This helped a little more for a while. Then he suggested a spiritual teacher. Back to the psychological diagnosis. I went to the spiritual teacher and learned much from the experience; actually it changed my life forever, which is not easy when my very sweet 3 year old daughter is crying on my arm telling me she doesn’t want her mommy to die.

At this time it was 3 years since my first dizzy spell. I still had all my symptoms but not as often and not as intense as before I went to all the natural doctors. They all helped me to a certain point, but my body was really worn out and I needed a major organ jump start.

Finally, after 3 years of searching for answers one of my daughter’s teachers told me about this 3rd Generation Traditional Chinese Medicine Doctor from China she knew who had a great reputation for fixing difficult problems no one else could fix. People go to him from around the country and abroad to have him make herbal formulas for their health problems. So off to the Chinese Doctor.

I walked in his office and plopped down looking like a wet wash rag. He looked in my eyes and knew I was not well. I gave him a list of my symptoms and everything I had tried so far. He was very compassionate and understanding of how I felt. He then proceeded to tell me what was causing these symptoms. We immediately started herbs and acupuncture to stimulate my organs, It was intense.

Every week I felt better.

– I felt like I was coming out of a 3 year coma.
– I wasn’t sure who I was exactly.
– I didn’t realize how sick I was until I started getting well again, I continued on the herbs and acupuncture to support and improve my organ function, with amazing results.
– I got stronger and all my symptoms were less frequent. Eventually I got to 100%, mentally, physically and emotionally.
– I know I am healthier now than I have ever been because of the herbs and acupuncture Doctor.
– I use preventive herbs instead of drugs to stay healthy.
– I eat healthier, feel calmer, look at life more positively and don’t take my health for granted.

So what made me sick? In Chinese medicine it doesn’t really matter how you got there so much, as how can we fix you from were you are right now. It could have been from the infection, or the antibiotics, I don’t really know. Whatever attacked my organs. But, I do know that the Chinese Doctor and herbal formulas, along with acupuncture were the key and saved my life. The herbs that the 3rd Generation Chinese Herbalist formulated fixed, repaired, and balanced my system so it could heal itself naturally, safely, and without any side effects. It did take a couple years because I was so sick when I found him. I am forever grateful.

The question that readily comes to mind is: how does it treat all these health disorders. It works by balancing and removing any impediment to human energy “circuits”. Instead of inflicting you with the harmful side-effects that comes with conventional drugs, Acupuncture directly works with the body’s energy channels, known as the meridians. When these meridians are clogged, the body becomes more prone to suffer from certain illnesses. The good thing is that the acupuncture needles restore and unclog these meridians. This will enable the energy flow and the blood circulation of the body to be normalized and balanced.
Some people are of the opinion that acupuncture is only a simple pain control technique. To them the needles inserted interrupt nerve pathways thus sending pain messages to the brain. Even though this is relatively true, acupuncture does much more. The makeup of acupuncture is such that it works to balance the body’s energy in its entirety as well as treat any malady.

This interruption or stimulation of points can cause analgesic effect that will cut down or totally eliminate pain. It can even suffer a more strong energy flow which can help to alleviate various health problems.

There is really an endless list of conditions that may be helped by the right Chinese Medicine Doctor with Acupuncture and herbs.

  1.  Insomnia or Sleep Disorder
  2.  Headaches
  3.  Infertility & Hormone Disorders
  4.  Neck and Shoulder Pain
  5.  Over Active Nerves
  6.  Urinary Infections
  7.  Digestive Disorders
  8.  Obesity and Weight Control
  9.  Stress, Anxiety and Depression
  10.  Carpel Tunnel
  11.  Muscle & Tendon Pain

For example Hormone Problems:

When we say the term hormonal problems, we are talking generally on the glands that secrete hormones. Therefore, this condition affects both men and women depending on what hormone lacks or exceeds. Hormonal imbalance may increase your chances of getting breast and ovarian cancer. It may also cause different endocrine diseases like hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, or Diabetes.

It is important to make sure that you have a balanced lifestyle to avoid hormonal imbalance. Research shows that sedentary lifestyle which is the number one cause of obesity is also the leading cause of hormonal imbalance all over the world. Thus it is important to get moving, have a proper exercise and a balanced diet all the time. It is also important to avoid taking hormonal pills and other medicines that may affect the production of hormones in your body.

And last but not the least, it is definitely important to get therapies aside from having a healthy lifestyle. Acupuncture or a good herbal formula, for instance, are a couple of the most effective therapies that can treat hormonal imbalance and many other health issues.

Although the Chinese and millions of people in Asia have been enjoying the benefits of acupuncture and herbs for several centuries already, we of other continents can take solace in the fact that the health benefits of medical acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas are becoming more and more common place.
