YouTube #29:

Jaundice, Slow healing liver, Itching, Difficulty Sleeping

 

 

Liver disease caused by Anabolic steroids

MDs gave him 1+ year to heal.

Treated 5 times by ME.  After 4th treatment:

Itching 100% improved.

Sleeping 100% improved.

Jaundice 95% improved.

Bilirubin level decreased from 45 to 30 to 10 from 1st to the 4th treatment (it should be under a 1).  According to the email from patient’s parents below, his liver is HEALTHY after a total of 5 treatments.  The doctors gave the 16-year old patient a very poor prognosis, stating that this slow-healing part of the liver would take 1+ year to heal (with medications).  I initially asked for 6-9 months (claiming that I hope to decrease healing time from 25-50%;  I obviously underestimated Dr. Tan’s Balance method because it took me a TOTAL OF 5 TREATMENTS to earn this letter).  Doctors absolutely don’t believe that the acupuncture had anything to do with the improvement during the 2.5 weeks the patient was under my care.  If you would like a personal update, the parents clearly stated below that they are willing to speak for my work.

 

Anna,

Thank you for the follow up.

“B” is doing extremely well.

His liver finally hit the number for him to

be declared “healthy.”
He is playing football and enjoying his

junior year in high school.

As a family, we are happy to write a
testimonial on your website.
Please just let us know how to do it.
We are also happy to
refer you to anybody that will listen.
We can never thank you enough for
helping B in his recovery.

Sincerely,

Mr. & Mrs. “J”

This is the reason why I chose to be a “quack doctor” in 1994.  History clearly shows that evolution (philosophy, arts, medicine, science, religion, law, human rights, etc.) usually happened when a person ran a different direction and went against status quo despite all criticism and hurdles.  Remember, the world used to be “flat;” medical doctors not too long ago believed that “a gentleman’s hands are never dirty,” thus they never believed in washing their hands after handling a corpse and then delivering a baby (causing a high percentage of mothers dying); women used to not be able to vote in America; people of color had zero rights in America; a renegade a couple of thousands of years ago created a whole new testament in the Bible; a young Joan of Arc (burned at the stake at age 19) followed a mission that probably would earn her a place in a psyche ward by today’s standards; Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., had a fabulous dream; and the list goes on.   It is my privilege to practice a medicine that the pioneers in the 1970s paved my way in California.  This quickly-gained and, hopefully, long-term success story is one gift that I give to the field of Chinese medicine with a very humble heart.  I honestly thought it would take me a minimum of 3 months to start seeing profound improvement like this.

 

Thank you, Southern California.  Thank you, “B,” for your faith in me.

 

Yelp Review #61

I have been going to Anna for over 2 years now and cannot say enough great things about her.  I first started seeing her when I went for a nagging hip pain that I had tried everything to get rid of.  A friend one night suggested acupuncture – I was admittedly a skeptic and hence why I never went.  But I was at my whits end and would try anything to make the pain go away.  The very next morning as I was driving to work a van pulled up next to me with the advertisement on it’s car – Elements in Harmony, Acupuncture.  I knew it was meant to be.  I immediately called that number and I have been with her ever since.  Within a year my hip pain was completely gone.  Now I see Anna for my mental and overall well being.

I cannot imagine my life without Anna and her special gift.  She is an amazing practitioner as well as an extraordinary person and friend.

She made a believer out of me!!

Thank you,  Ann.

All the best,
Michelle

“I want to lose weight!!”… “I want to get in-shape!!”… “If only I can lose these last 5lbs!!” Does that all sound familiar to you? Possibly repeating over and over in your head? Getting healthy and “getting in-shape” are one of those things people tend to put off until the weight is unbearable and/or the person’s health is at risk. So where do we begin? Just like anyone who is interested in fashion, cooking, art or any hobby, the first step is to do a little research on what it is he/she is interested in. It somewhat becomes an obsession. As for ‘getting into shape’ there’s no difference in your approach. There is an ongoing list of workout ideas, clean eating recipes and daily supplements to consider. Some may equate “skinny” to being healthy, but it is far from it. It is definitely not about popping a fat burning pill or being on a liquid diet for a few weeks, because those will only give you temporary results. It’s about incorporating healthy choices into your daily routine and making fitness a lifestyle.

So, what’s the first step? Whether your a stay-at-home parent, eight to fiver or constantly traveling, it is making a commitment to yourself. A commitment to making a conscious effort to eat healthy, exercising, setting realistic fitness goals and making healthy choices for your body. Everyone has a specific body type and reacts differently to certain foods and/or supplements. It is important to research what we put in our body along with creating a workout plan that is tailored to our goals and/or needs. This lifestyle involves being cautious about the things we eat along with portion sizing, how much exercise or physical activity we engage in and the amount of rest we give ourselves. Here are some quick things to consider: Research different kinds of healthy foods and different physical activities/exercises that interest you that also require raising your heart-rate. This is a KEY element to losing weight! Prepare your meals for the day with small snacks ready to go. This will decrease the chances of walking into a fast food restaurant or picking up 7-Eleven’s fat filled convenient food soaked in saturated fat. If you are a parent, consider snacks both you and your child can enjoy together. We are all guilty of eating the fruit snacks or animal cookies laying around in your child’s lunch bag. Throw out the processed snacks, bright artificial colored cereal and replace them with fruits, veggie sticks and organic munchies. Having a variety of snacks and switching them out every couple weeks makes it less likely to get bored of them.

Be prepared to take on the day!…. write out a meal plan for yourself and/or your family. The moment it’s written down it becomes part of our daily routine and eventually becomes habitual. If you want to get serious, set an alarm to eat every 2-3 hours so our body does not go into starvation mode and hold on to the fat for fuel. Refueling our body with small healthy nutritious meals every 2-3 hours, even when not hungry will result in having energy throughout the day and help you lean out. It’s simple! If this is something new to you, take baby steps! Put in the time, do the work and it will ALL pay off. Its YOUR time to embark on your own journey and create YOUR own fitness SUCCESS story. Stay tuned for more health & fitness tips and sampled workouts and great supplements that will enhance your overall workout experience!

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.
