It is with absolute great pleasure that I introduce to you “L,” a beautiful new baby to the world, born to a mother whom I had helped become pregnant with the POWERS of Chinese medicine last year.

 

I would like to thank all of my “mothers” who have worked so diligently with me over the course of either the recommended 6-12 cycles, 12-18 cycles or 2-3 years in order to become pregnant naturally.

 

Please scroll below to read her mommy’s testimonial.

 

Today is a very special day for me because I get to share this with you.  Healing does take time.  It takes effort.  It takes persistence. It takes perseverance.  All I ask is that when you decide to work with me that you believe in yourself and give yourself time to heal physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.  I believe in this medicine and I’ve been training since 1994 to serve you with my best with the POWERS of Chinese medicine.  Just believe in yourself, show up for the recommended number of treatments and we are half way there.

 

Baby “L” is living proof that when Chinese medicine is applied properly, consistently and frequently, dreams do come true.

 

Congratulations, Mommy.  You did it!

 

It was hard to write this because I can’t find the words to thank Anna enough for what she did for me.  I started seeing her in the spring of 2010 for issues unrelated to fertility.  Very soon after I switched my focus to fertility because my husband and I were ready to start a family and it wasn’t happening as quickly or easily as expected.  She was very clear about the instructions for fertility treatments and the patience required to embark on this journey with acupuncture and herbs.  I was ready and willing to do it.  She asked for 6 – 12 cycles and diligence/faith throughout the process.  Understandably, my faith waivered as the months went on and she patiently provided me with kind words, hope, and support that I needed to keep going.  Many times I called her crying and she listened and encouraged me to press on.  By cycle six I decided to see my OB/GYN to confirm what I thought was low progesterone.  Sure enough my blood work revealed that my progesterone was extremely low and she indicated that I was not ovulating.  Her recommendation was that I start Clomid, which I was very much against because I didn’t want to introduce synthetic hormones into my system, especially after working with acupuncture. Also I knew in my heart of hearts that I WAS ovulating, regardless of what the blood test showed.  It was yet another hiccup in my faith in acupuncture but after supportive words from Anna, I decided to stay on the natural path.  A couple of days later I observed some strange symptoms and decided to take a pregnancy test (I thought what the heck—it can’t hurt!). To my utter surprise, it was positive!  I waited the weekend and called my doctor on Monday, went in for a pregnancy test and discovered I was three weeks pregnant!  I went from “not ovulating” to “pregnant” in a matter of days.  My doctor said stranger things have happened, but I knew what happened – acupuncture and herbs!!  My pregnancy was virtually problem free with the exception of having typical pregnancy symptoms.  In my 40th week I went to see Anna for natural induction because I was scheduled to be induced in my 41st week. As expected, it worked!  Two days before my induction my water broke and I went into natural labor.  Today I sit here with my beautiful nine-week old baby girl and I get misty-eyed just thinking about the road to get here.  I always refer to Anna as my angel because without her I would not be in this fortunate place.  Thank you Anna for making my dreams of becoming a mother come true.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture for Stroke

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and acupuncture can contribute an important part of the treatment plan for a patient recovering from a stroke. Use of a range of conventional and traditional treatment provides the patient with the greatest chance for recovery of function, minimization of disability, and can also reduce pain and help the patient cope with frustration and other adverse emotional reactions to their illness. TCM approaches may also be used to lessen the side-effects of conventional medicines which may include lethargy and nausea.

Acupuncture has been shown to increase blood flow in areas of the brain immediately around lesions caused by a stroke, and so may facilitate brain repair and re-organization to compensate for areas of organic damage. Clinical trials indicate that acupuncture is a low cost treatment with few risks of side-effects. The absence in TCM of toxicity, which can result in side-effects is a quality that allows acupuncture to be safely used in conjunction with any conventional therapies.

Traditional herbal medicines such as Ginsing Zai Zao Wan and Di Huang Yin may also assist in the recovery from a stroke by thinning the blood and reducing platelet aggregation. Other treatments that may contribute to recovery include massage and electrical stimulation of acupoints. Electro-stimulation is a technique where small electrical currents are passed through acupuncture needles to add additional stimulation to acupuncture points. Electro-acupuncture has been shown to decrease pain, accelerate tissue healing, and significantly reduce inflammation.

TCM approaches are increasingly being incorporated into Western healthcare, and often the best care is a result of the full circle approach: taking into account a person’s mind and spirit as well as the body. Stress reducing massage and Asian Body Therapy can aid in recovery as well, taking the emotional stress of a person’s recovery into account.

 

My goal for is for each of my patients to have this kind of emotional and physical freedom to jump up for incredible joy.

 

When is the last time you felt like doing this?

 

When was the last time you did do this?

 

If you can, jump for joy RIGHT NOW because being alive in itself is a true and valuable gift.
