Firstly I came here for eczema. To be honest, acupuncture was my last resort. I felt very sceptical. I had seen two dermatologists and they just gave me topical creams with cortisone. They both failed in the sense that the eczema disappeared for a couple of weeks but then came back. It was very itchy, unpleasant and uncomfortable. After the first treatment nothing much had happened, the only thing was that the the eczema did not get bigger (it was getting bigger before).
On the second visit at AcuMedic, the doctor studied me long and hard, asked me a lot of questions and in the end gave me some herbs, telling me that I was producing too much heat and that was the reason of my eczema. Too much heat emotionally too.
The herbs worked like magic. The eczema was gone in three days, I could not believe it. Since then – years ago! – it has come back only once I think. I took the same herbs and have been eczema-free since then.
How important, also, to know that I had to “calm down” mentally, to know my body and learn to live better with it.
Now I come regularly for my sinusitis/cold and I feel much better than before.
