Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (CRPS) / Migraines / Fibromyalgia / Pain Med Withdrawal
"My husband actually sought out Dr. Christine’s help due to my progressive decline in health. I was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/CRPS and the medical doctors, although compassionate, were only able to minimize my symptoms with narcotic painkillers. Acupuncture and herbs have helped me manage my pain levels without the mind-numbing effects of the medications. In fact, the help given by Dr. Christine has enabled me to go through the painful process of withdrawing from all medications without being hospitalized. She helped me manage nausea, balance, dizziness, muscular aches, and ringing in the ears. The doctors even added fibromyalgia to the list of diagnoses for my body of pain.
Upon asking them what they can do to help it, I was again told they could manage the pain with medication but no cure was available. Treating symptoms is not the approach I was looking for, so acupuncture is more in line with what I wanted from my healthcare professional…a fix it/get me better at the core level mentality. The treatment has been helpful and will hopefully bring a full resolution to the issues.
Sadly, chronic health issues and severe pain had given me a very dismal outlook on life thus antidepressants were also prescribed by my physician. I had even tried numerous health remedies on my own without success. Now, with the acupuncture and herbs, I’m off those medications too and I’m free from the resulting side effects of sleepiness.
Another miracle, while seeking help from acupuncture for my other health problems, has been to come to the office with a migraine headache and nausea that accompanies such beasts then within a few minutes of treatment the headache is completely gone or decreased enough to function fully. Furthermore, due to my ongoing treatments, Dr. Christine has helped with acute health issues such as bronchitis, sinusitis, and allergies. Dr. Christine blends professionalism, care, and love for her clients like no other physician does. I give her an 11 on a scale of 1-10. Her knowledge is remarkable and she is able to apply it because she really listens to your concerns & needs. With all the help I’ve received at A Way of Life, my quality of life has improved dramatically. In fact…I want to live again. I can continue to get better and I will. I have hope for tomorrow."
