Every woman's journey in becoming a mother is a individual and personal experience - my was challenging. But through the help of Anna my pregnancy became tolerable and then finally enjoyable. Anna helped me with the undisclosed or non-discussed parts of pregnancy that women don't talk about - and endure with shame or angst. Anna understood the discomforts associated with pregnancy - the lack of sleep, backaches, pelvic pain, nausea, balance issues, exhaustion and so much more. I remember that with one treatment she had my hemorrhoids under control - my OB was impressed! And in another treatment she stopped my leg cramps - my husband was impressed! Especially because I would wake him up in the middle of the night in pain trying to get out of bed.
Through the later part of my pregnancy she prepared my body and mind for preparation of a c-section - while not the most widely accepted form of giving birth this was the safest for the baby and me. My c-section experience was amazing - I was discharged a day early I was on not pain medication from 1 day after surgery My recovery was quick and uncomplicated My scar healed like a scratch - Amazing!
I attribute all of this to the work Anna did on preparing me. Her ability to offer my body comfort and healing through acupuncture allowed me to enjoy the very early moments of my daughter life - one I would not have if I was on pain medications or worse... I got to bond with my daughter and I am grateful for the preparedness that Anna provided to me.
When I learned I was to have abdominal hernia surgery I talked with Anna about treating it with acupuncture. She said she could help ease the recovery time by treating it both in advance and afterwards. Anna started treating me about two months before the surgery. In recovery I awoke very easily and was able to walk, unassisted, to the restroom and never had any feeling of nausea. I was written a prescription for paid medication but DID NOT NEED ANY. Anna has treated me a few times so far afterwards and I feel fine, other than that I cannot do any heavy lifting, per the doctors orders.

Noelle's sore throat was gone after 1 day of using the Astragulas
and Sambucol. Kasen is about dried up now, I think. I've been noticing
for the last 2 days that it looks like his runny nose is gone. No
Julia still has a runny nose and a little cough, however, all of
the secretions are very thin and clear. That leads me to believe
that it is drying up.
For myself, the herb that you gave me, Sing Ju X (something like
that). I've been taking 2 pills every morning and this time out
of the hospital was my quickest intestinal recovery. It usually
takes me 6-7 days to have a BM with all the codine and the anesthesia
that they give me for the surgery. They gave me morphine too. This
time it was only 4 days.
Well, I did just have a major surgery which has healed great. If
you have any other suggestions in mind for pills to take for those
symptoms I can come get some more herbs from you unless you have
other dietary suggestions.
