Upper Respiratory Infections:
I was reading a story on CNN.com about children and teachers were getting sick during the school year with repeated upper repository infections along with ear and sinus infections. My 1st thought was the schools should be checked to see why anyone was getting ill that often; my 2nd thought was how acupuncture and Chinese herbs could help heal these infections and strengthen the immune systems of all. :)
You treated me several times over the past year for ear and sinus infections; one always seemed to lead to the other and you would treat me for both. Acupuncture relieved the pressure in my head, the fluid in my ears and generally made me feel better each time you treated me. Having the pain from the infection drop by 50% and stay down for a day or two afterwards really helped me feel better and I know heal more quickly from the infections. You treated not only the symptoms but the underlying infection as well. Instead of being on antibiotics for 10 or 20 days, rarely did 1 round of antibiotics end the infection, I saw you 3 or 4 times and took Chinese herbs for about a week and was cured! The herbs have no side effects, no warning labels and no allergic reaction precautions. The acupuncture was relaxing and I rarely felt the needles. You would poke me, turn on the heating pad, place a hot pack on top of me and let me sleep while the acupuncture worked!
Since you have been working on boosting my immune system these past few months, I did not get the winter bug that went around work and was off for vacation by choice not by illness!
Thank you Anna!
