Relief From Tourette Syndrome
My name is Justin V. I am seven years old and I came to Abundance Acupuncture in November, 2011 because I was suffering from a head movement disorder caused by stress, anxiety, an upset stomach, heat spells, and a lack of energy.
I had this problem for four years. I felt sick to my stomach and often got so worked up that I would vomit. I would feel really warm, my head movements started up, and sweat ran down my body. It was embarrassing when this happened at school. It was difficult to do my best when all I wanted was to go home and take a shower. These problems also made it difficult for me to sleep and then I felt even more tired and irritable. I just wanted to sleep all day.
I tried chiropractic and Tourette syndrome medication, Haldol, Risperdal, and antidepressants. But I ended up with night mares and felt agitated, weak, and sleepy all the time.
I began to feel significant improvements in my condition after four treatments at Abundance Acupuncture. At this point in time I feel 80% better. I now feel energized and can eat all of my meals because I donít have an upset stomach anymore. I am able to focus and know what is going on at school. I am less agitated, laugh a lot more, and enjoy playing with the rest of the kids. My head movements have lessened and I can now ride my bike without training wheels and ride my Razor 4-wheeler all by myself.
During the treatments I felt relieved that something was actually helping me. The clinic at Abundance Acupuncture is wonderful and the staff is great. I enjoy taking my herbal pills because they help me a lot with school and my academics. If you have Tourette syndrome or a movement disorder Chinese herbal therapy can make a big difference.
Allergies, Migraines, & Overheating
My name is Logan G., age 7. I came to Abundance Acupuncture in June 2007 because I was suffering from migraines, nosebleeds, allergies, skin peeling on my feet, and my body was over heating. I had this problem for four years. The migraines would make my head pound really hard, the lights were too bright, sounds were too loud, sometimes I would throw up and sleep for hours. My nosebleeds correlated with my migraines. When spring and fall allergies came, my migraines would increase. Because of these health problems I had irritability, difficulty with sleeping and concentrating some days at school. No matter where we went my parents had to bring childrenís Motrin along in case I would get a migraine.
I have gone through surgery to remove my adenoids and tonsils and had two MRIís to find a cause for my migraines. Results of both MRIís showed no reason for the migraines. I do go to a homeopathic allergist and that has helped my allergies and reduced the occurrence of migraines. I still take Motrin when necessary to manage the pain of the migraines.
Since coming to Abundance Acupuncture I started feeling significant improvements in all of my health issues after about eight treatments. At this point in time my condition feels 90% better. I now feel less stuffed up from my allergies, my feet have very little skin peeling, I do not over heat as bad, and I have not had a migraine or a nosebleed since starting treatments. I can now play soccer and be very active without worrying about getting a migraine.
During the treatments I felt drowsy and relaxed. When the treatment is over I feel a little dizzy when I sit up, but then that passes and I feel energized. The clinic is very welcoming and the staff is very friendly. Jonah has made me feel very comfortable during all my treatments.
I would recommend acupuncture to anyone of any age because it will improve your quality of life.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
My name is Logan C. and I am eight years old. I came to Abundance Acupuncture in October, 2010 because I was suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder, and constipation. I had this problem for five years. This problem interfered with my ability to focus and stay on task at school and at home.
It made me feel fidgety, impulsive, irritable, and angry. It also made it difficult for me to sleep and it was hard to go through my days at school. I tried the Feingold diet which helped some to improve my focus, but I began to feel significant improvements in my condition after four months of working with Abundance Acupuncture.
At this point in time my condition feels 75% better. I now feel calmer and more focused. I no longer have any problems with constipation. I am able to follow directions consistently and my body is not in constant motion. I can sit still when I need to and raise my hand instead of talking impulsively. I feel more patience which allows me to be more polite and to integrate into school routines. The feedback that I have heard from teachers at school is that they are amazed at how much I have changed. Also my mother wants to thank you for bringing some normalcy back into our familyís life. The clinic is fabulous and the staff is awesome. I would recommend acupuncture to everyone because it is a simple step in bettering your life.
Sufficient Lactation Restored
My name is Elizabeth L. I came to Abundance Acupuncture in September 2013, because I was suffering from a lack of milk supply for my three month old son. I had been successfully nursing him from birth, but began to have trouble keeping up with his demand for ever more milk. This went on for three weeks and it became more and more frustrating because I was trying to feed him every hour while also tending to my four older childrenís needs.
This situation gave me both emotional and physical stress. I wasnít sleeping well and I felt hopeless and inadequate when I couldnít satisfy my babyís desire for food. It was difficult for me to take him anywhere where breastfeeding was not socially acceptable. I tried drinking extra water, but just ended up having to go to the bathroom all the time.
I began to feel significant improvements in my condition after one week of taking a Chinese herbal formula that benefits lactation. At this point in time my condition feels 100% better. I now feel that the milk supply is sufficient for my sonís needs and he can wait longer periods of time between feedings.
I have also had significant improvement with other symptoms. I feel less stressed out in my daily life and this allows me to be a calm figure in my childrenís lives.
The clinic is a soothing environment and the staff is positively hopeful! I would recommend acupuncture to anyone who has physical issues which can not be resolved by self assessment and diet modifications.
