note is to follow up on my acupuncture treatment of April 12, 2009. As
background, I have a severe neurological condition diagnosed as
hyperplasticity of the central nervous system. Basically this means that my
brain over-reacts to nerve stimulation as if I had been Tasered. This
condition developed about 6 years ago after a severe infection of the spine
which degraded the structure of the spine and the function of the spine.
Although 2 neurosurgeries improved my condition, the Taser response has
persisted. This condition is the opposite of diseases in which neurons die.
I have an excellent
neurologist and truly believe that he provides the best care possible. Still,
my goal is to not have this terrible disease although I have become resigned.
Most doctors, until they, accidently provoke a seizure, cannot comprehend the
Over the last 6
years, I have worked through many forms of traditional western medicine and
assorted forms of alternative care. I have learned to avoid "blame the
victim" treatments that make high claims yet deliver nothing but blame.
This is a long
prelude but I really want to convey to you how much I appreciated your
statement during our first session that sometimes acupuncture just does not
work. I had previously worked with a doctor who had many excellent skill but
the acupuncture as he practiced it was terrible painful and yielded zero
progress. I still see this Doctor for other treatments and have good respect
for him -- if not for his practice of acupuncture.
For my first visit I
was very apprehensive of the cold and pain that I would suffer during the
treatment. I was so happy to discover that due to your excellent technique and
use of heat lamps and short duration, there was no pain and I did not become
cold. I felt the effects of your multiple method approach on the first
I am glad now that I
overcame my past and fear to undergo treatment with you since on April 12,
2009, you located the blockage of my feet which I felt during treatment as a
shoe or spa clay treatment of my feet. Your empirical approach of triggering a
minor seizure prior to the treatment and the repeating the test after the
treatment to prove that the protocol you applied worked was unique in my
experience with medical or alternative practitioners excluding my neurologist
is also proceeds in a similar empirical manner.
mitigation of the seizures only lasted 6 hours, it did occur and as evidence,
I went to the grocery store during that time. For the first time, I feel hope
that the correct blockage has been identified.
