I have two patients that have warmed my heart this week. I’d like to share their stories with you to let you know the wonders of Chinese Medicine.
First, we have a 73 year old female who has suffered from Ulcerative Colitis for over 25 years. She came to me last week for her first visit after having tried what she considered to be “everything”. I did her full intake and then placed some needles. She rested for 20 minutes and when all her questions had been answered, she left to resume her daily activities. She returned this week and singing the praises of my treatment! She reported that I had helped her more in one treatment than anyone had helped her in the last 15 years. She was so happy and said she couldn’t wait to get back in for her next treatment. She is looking forward to continued improvement and getting her husband to come in also.
Secondly, we have an 85 year female I have been seeing for some time. She started with knee pain and has since had that knee replaced. Since the knee replacement in January, she has developed pain in the opposite hip. We treated the hip with very little result the first go ‘round. The second treatment seemed to do the trick....on her third trip in today, I asked her how her hip was and she said “what hip”! 85 years old!! WOW!!
These are two great examples of the results Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can produce; one structural and one systemic. I’m super excited about these two cases and the results we achieved given their ages. It works for the young and the elderly!! If you have any health issues you want to resolve and wonder if Chinese Medicine could help you, give me a call and let’s talk about it!
