Guillain-Barre Syndrome

I started seeing Anna about two months ago after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disease known as Guillain-Barre.

I was diagnosed with this disease that made me feel like I was much older than the 18 years that I am. It started with extremely sharp pains that went from my lower back and shot down into my leg, after that my feet went completely numb and I lost my reflexes in them, the left side of my face became completely paralyzed, and my fingers were constantly tingling.

I was told that all of these symptoms would take about a year or longer to completely heal. After seeing multiple doctors and finding out there was nothing that western medicine could do for me, I started seeing Anna two to three times a week. By about the second week of treatment the pain in my lower back and leg was completely gone and about six weeks into my treatments the numbness of my feet and tingling in my hands was 90-95% improved. The paralysis in my face was what I wanted to focus on the most after the pain was gone. Now after seeing Anna for about two months my face has improved about 95%.

Seeing so much improvement, through Anna’s help, in such a short time really showed me that acupuncture works. Even my neurologist was surprised at how quickly I was healing.

After the first couple weeks of treatment I was already feeling a lot better and the progress that was gave me so much more encouragement to keep going to my treatments. I am so grateful, everyday, for everything that Anna has done for me and that she was placed in my life at this critical time. I have so much more energy and I am still continuing to see improvements with one treatment a week. Almost 100% improvement in two months is more than I could have ever asked for!

Anna, thank you for everything that you have done for me.
