Once again Acupuncture comes to the rescue when it seems like there is no hope! Here is another success story dealing with PCOS and the absence of periods (amenorrhoea).
Vicki is 33 years old and she came to see me for acupuncture because she hadn’t had a period for over two years. She had been diagnosed with PCOS five years ago, and apart from a dose of Metformin (which did nothing), the doctors said there was nothing they could do. And so Vicki heard that acupuncture might be able to help….I’ll let Vicki tell the story in her own words:
Vicki’s Story – Acupuncture and PCOS
“My sister saw a post on Facebook about Steve’s successful treatment for a lady with PCOS, and she suggested I contact Steve to see if he could help. At this stage I hadn’t had a period for roughly 2.5 years and had been having issues for a number of years before that. The Doctor’s only solution was that I stayed on the pill to regulate my period, and when I did come off it in December 2016 they were totally unsupportive. I really was totally lost for what to do until my sister found Steve!
I told Steve my fear of needles and he was absolutely brilliant and reassuring – I can honestly say not one of those needles ever hurt and I’ve had a lot now! Steve went through the approach we would take to get my periods going and that it would be a 3 month journey. When we came to the end of the 3 months, however, my period hadn’t started again, so we talked through the options. Steve was really supportive and I made the decision to carry on as I felt we had put so much time in to give up. I am so so glad we did as a few weeks after I had my first period in over 2.5 years!
If you are not sure whether to give acupuncture a try, whether you’re scared of needles, cynical as to how it works or just apprehensive, seriously, have one consultation with Steve and you will change your mind. It’s an investment into your health and well-being, things in life that are priceless!”
Thanks Vicki 🙂
