Amazing Knee Pain Relief
In Sept. 2009, I treated a 52 y.o. female patient who suffered from diabetes, extreme obesity, and severe low back and knee pain. The patient had been involved in 2 motor vehicle accidents which was the inital cause of her back and knee pain and caused her to walk assisted with a cane. After one session of acupuncture, that focused on overall strengthening as well as stimulation of the blood and qi in the knees, the patient was able to walk without a cane for 3 months. Due to the injuries of the patient and health history she is unable to work and has a very limited income. She is only able to come in for therapy every 1-3 months even though she really needs more consistent care. Still the patient is very grateful for the intermittent pain relief and sense of increased energy and well-being she receives whenever she is able to get acupuncture.
Successful Resolution of GI Issues
A 44yo man was complaining of chronic low grade lower back pain which mostly resolved after I recommended the Paleo diet to his wife, who I was treating with acupuncture, and who would cook Paleo for her family due to my nutritional recommendations. The husband realized that after switching to a Paleo diet he had significant issues digesting wheat after being wheat-free for a period of time and his mother was concurrently diagnosed with celiac disease (which is a hereditary condition). Being hesitant about acupuncture therapy the husband finally came in to see me after much insistence by his wife. The patientís chronic constipation was resolved after just 2 treatments. This patient does not have many health complaints but told me he plans to continue to keep coming in for regular acupuncture sessions because he is sleeping more restfully and enjoys the sense of calm as well as mental clarity that he receives from treatment.
