After years of irregular periods, terrible menstrual pain, excessive hair growth around my body, and constant breakouts on my face, I was finally diagnosed with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome). Internists, gynecologists and endocrinologists have confirmed there is no cure for PCOS. I was given a myriad of pills that caused all kinds of negative side effects, and finally gave up on the traditional medical options.
I was introduced to Dr. Wang (acupuncturist) through a friend. Although hesitant to try this method of treatment, I knew I had to try something different.
I am so excited to be able to share that through treatment with Dr. Wang, my periods have been entirely regulated, my skin is beautiful, and I no longer have the hair growth (on the wrong parts of my body!)
Here’s the amazing part – I returned to my gynecologist, who had previously shown me images of the hundreds of cysts I had on my ovaries. This time, he was confused at my scans and thought my file was switched! Of course he confirmed that these new images did in fact belong to me, and was utterly shocked at the clear ovaries. He asked what I did since our last visit, and I told him about my acupuncture sessions with Dr. Wang.
As most of you know, traditional MDs do not condone acupuncture, or any other natural therapies – but after seeing me, my doctor asked for Dr. Wang’s business card, and now refers his patients to her as well!
In addition to addressing the problems I had, acupuncture came with some added benefits I was not even expecting. It improved my energy levels, and helped me sleep so much better.
I highly recommend a couple of sessions with Dr. Wang, who not only is an expert in her field, but is also friendly, caring, and takes enormous pride in her work.
