My Endocrinologist has been treating me for PCOS for the past year. During last week's visit, he said my blood work showed huge improvement. My androgen hormones have decreased. I was originally put on two medications. About three months ago I stopped taking one of the medications. During last week's visit, I was told to cut the dosage of the second medication in half. He felt that there was no need for me to see him again. He advised me to have my family doctor redo blood work in about six months. He believes the hormones will continue to balance and become normal. At that point I can stop taking all medications. His comment to me was "whatever you have been doing, keep it up". I have been receiving acupuncture treatments from Elements in Harmony for about five months. Thank you Anna!
You treated me several times for pre-menopausal symptoms, especially night/days sweats and I wanted to let you know that the symptoms are totally gone! It is such a relief not to wake up covered in sweat; having to change clothes that were all hot and sweaty. I also enjoy the relief while at work of not worrying that at any moment I would start to feel sweat rolling down by back at any time. Thank you for the acupuncture that took away all my symptoms. I know as I move into this next stage of life, I will not have to suffer through the multitude of symptoms my friends (who are not doing acupuncture) are experiencing. The first symptoms were bad enough to me and I really don't want to experience more of them :)
Thank you so much for changing my life and the way I now view the importance of mind and body health. When I came to you in August, my menstrual cycles were 60-75 days long and I was suffering from the effects of severe hormonal fluctuations. Your caring nature and passion for Chinese medicine intrigued me and I didn’t have many options with Western medicine. Not only do I feel SO much better, but I am a BELIEVER that it’s in everyone’s best interest to bring the body into homeostasis. My cycles have shortened to 35 days and I am much more relaxed, which has resulted in a decrease in obsessive-compulsive behaviors. I was underweight and staying up too late. I’ve now gained 4 pounds and am feeling energetic but more rested. Best of all, after getting to know you and the healing power of Chinese medicine, I was inspired to make dietary and lifestyle changes to supplement the acupuncture and herbs. Everyday, I am enthralled with my progress and appreciative of your help to get me here. Thank you!
Over the years I have worked with Anna professionally
and as a client, I have always been impressed by her enthusiasm,
professionalism, hard work ethic and knowledge. She treated me using
acupuncture for a shoulder problem that disappeared in minutes,
after other traditional treatments for the same problem had taken
months to do the same. She also started working with me for female
hormone issues using acupuncture and Chinese herbs that I am confident
would have done a world of good had I been able to continue with
them. I wish I had found her sooner!
Thanks Anna for everything!
