I am going to an acupuncturist now and it seems to be helping me - slowly. She has been willing to work with me even though I am taking conventional meds. She has given me some herbs, special tea and essential oils to use. All and all it works better than the prednisone did. I think the effects are cumulative - I didn't see much results the first couple of visits, but after a few weeks it is really making a difference.
I am very happy with the results. I am having my first formed bms in months and almost no cramping or blood. I still have some urgency issues, but even those are not as bad as they were.
My insurance does not cover it, but I can use my flexible spending account and that helps reduce the cost.
I am glad to hear that it is helping others, too.
