Menstrual Issues Testimonial
I’ve written more than one review praising Anna’s talents as a healer.  This particular testimonial speaks to a problem many women face.


Until recently, I had never experienced a regular menstrual cycle.  By the time I went on Depo Provera (birth control) at the age of 19, my body had not once bled in a timely, healthy fashion.  In fact, it was one of my main reasons for choosing “the shot,” which eliminates menstruation altogether.  At least I wouldn’t be aware of how defective my body was.

Fast forward 11 years to my 30th rotation around the sun.  My focus on health in full swing, I had been seeing Anna for nearly two years.  One thing that became more and more important to me was reducing the number of chemicals in my body, so I decided to stop taking Depo.  I hadn’t had a period in over a decade and it was time to “reclaim my womanhood.”


Having studied Eastern theories about women’s health, I knew I needed to make some changes to ensure my health as I age.  I saw my own mother suffer horribly with hormone issues during and after menopause.  I wanted something different for myself.  And, hey, if I found a great guy and we decided to have kids, I figured I should make sure I could maintain a pregnancy.


I was off Depo for a year before Anna and I spoke about a treatment plan.  I still hadn’t seen a single drop of blood and was starting to worry.  Anna was clear that treatment could take years and I would have to be very consistent with acupuncture, coming three to four times a month.  I might need herbs – lots of them.  This was a serious investment in my health and my future.  Having recently finished grad school (read: broke) and living over 40 miles from her office, I didn’t hesitate in saying, “You have my time, my trust, and my money.”


It has been nearly two years and I am amazed at the change — I menstruate every 35 days.  This transformation has not been without serious battles, however.  At first, I bled every 15 days and had severe symptoms, including dramatic emotional fluctuations, physical soreness, and debilitating anemia.  Anna fought for my health and we got past those major hurdles.  Now, I am free from anemia, and the remaining symptoms are mild.


About 6 months ago, I stopped seeing Anna regularly because of a new job in Los Angeles, but have recently recommitted to treatments 3-4 times a month.  Yup, I drive over an hour home from work, then another 45 minutes south to see her – don’t forget the 45 minutes back, too.  My health is worth it and she is worth it.  The time away from home, my dog, my boyfriend, and other commitments is what I need to make sure I can be a good roommate, parent, partner, and friend.  I look forward to soon having a 30 day menstrual cycle without any symptoms.  I have faith in my body, faith in those needles, and certainly faith in Anna.


Thank you for all you do, Anna!  My world is such a better place with you in it!
