I made it! after the 1/2 hr consult,it was on to the needles/pins-which start to finish,was another hour. wow,is there ever alot! pin things from upper abdominal to low pelvis....at first it was okay,but there were about
5 painful pins,all low region-coughing is not recommended with those pins in! holy smokes,DON'T cough!! LOL!
NO coffee,cigarettes,or alcohol.,BUT,he said since I have smoked and drank coffee for so many years,he would allow MAXIMUM 1 cigarette per day ( 1-2 drags,then butt it out-only enough to get through the moment) and max. 1 cup (small) of coffee-suggested just a few sips.........
I am to go everyday for the next five days for the herbal tea and acupuncture,then will re-assess,then will set a new schedule as to how many times per week etc., this guy does very aggressive treatment and is determined to help me. Amazing,a doctor that actually wants to help! He is
a Traditional Chinese Doctor,and though some things are different,I'm willing to give it a try.
The acupuncture is highly recommended , I've spoken to many others and was told how it helped them .
WEIRD,one drag was enough,go figure...He did talk to me about
all the stuff in the pills we take,etc, so though this may not be up everyones alley, I will certainly be on board.
Some do acupuncture in other areas,but the abdominal cavity is where he finds the best results for lupus , fibro,kidneys, liver,ovaries,etc.
Though I don't expect to wake up tomorrow feeling 100%,I will have NOTICABLE results within a few days-some areas felt better by the time he was finished-overall,it is better,but hope those same spots are not such a problem in future
