“I cannot begin to tell you how much better I feel after just 5 treatments. As I explained, I have fibromyalgia (and migraines) and have been on many different types and combinations of drugs to get any relief. All seem to help for a while, but nothing has been as effective as the acupuncture treatments. This is the best I have felt in years. I am not saying that all of my symptoms have disappeared, but I can see a huge difference. I have been able to take walks and/or to actually walk on my treadmill for 10 minutes every day. Before coming in there, I was barely able to work every day let alone get any type of exercise. Between the pain and the fatigue, I was just existing. I could not get through a full day at work without napping at lunchtime. Many times while driving home, I felt like I would fall asleep behind the wheel. Pretty scary and not a way that I want to live the rest of my life.
Let me further say that I have been seeing a Rheumatologist for several years and she has kept me going, but it was always with drugs. I knew going back to her was going to mean yet another change or addition in medication. I already have issues with my liver probably because of the years of medication. Because the acupuncture treatments have been so effective in making me feel better, I have already started to cut back on the dosage of muscle relaxers with no ill effects. My long-term goal is to get off of all of the medicine that I have been on for the fibromyalgia and what I have been taking for migraine prevention. I want to be around to see my grandchildren grow up.
I have to say that I was a bit skeptical when I first came in for my consultation. I have never tried any alternative medicine before. Sara Poldmae has been absolutely wonderful; and, through the treatments so far, has made a believer out of me. At my consultation, Sara told me we would do 6 treatments and then evaluate how I was doing. That made me realize that her goal is to help me and not to just keep doing treatments for the sake of making money for the business.”
