A wonderful testimonial from a patient about her experience using acupuncture for diabetes, acid reflux.

I first visited Lisa Marie on 2-28-12 for my initial consultation on the recommendation of my friend and colleague Susanne. I am 58 years old female who had been sick for almost 26+ years of my life. My GI had me taking 80mg of nexium, plus pepcid, plus librax, plus stool softners, plus he wanted me to start taking the powdered form of zegrid. I weighed 128 lbs (now weight 122) and could hardly function.
I had awful constipation, suffered from horrific heartburn and I was type 2 diabetic. No amount or type of medicine was able to alleviate my misery, but Lisa’s entire approach to my health care, including a special diet and acupuncture treatments removed acid reflux from my life and reversed my diabetes in less than two weeks! Yes, less than two weeks. I am no longer on any medication…yes, no more nexium and no more anything else…all drug free!
Before I ever saw Lisa Marie for treatments, I was literally crippled. My health began to deteriorate rapidly over the last five years. During the course of this time I was being tested…yes, colonoscopy and endoscopy and every other test you can possibly imagine, were done on me. I was being tested (not treated) from head to toe by the many doctors I was seeing to no avail. All the medications, not to mention the side effects they all had on my health were devastating.
When Lisa Marie saw me, she gave me her undivided attention. She seemed too good to be true at first. Lisa gave me about 20 minutes of free initial consultation and explained the process to me, including sharing her knowledge of my very strange and what I felt was hopeless situation. After my first visit, I was amazed at how I felt in body and mind. I felt “free” & “light” & “hopeful” for the first time. Though she made it clear, nothing happens very quickly and she never gave me the unrealistic expectation; however she did make me understand that this would take time and my cooperation is going to help make this a success.
I believe I was seeing Lisa Marie twice a week in the beginning. By the end of the first two weeks I no longer needed my diabetic medication…yes, yes, yes, my diabetic numbers were amazingly low and my endocrinologist asked me to stop taking the metformin. At the end of March, Lisa Marie implemented Chinese herbal supplement to my acupuncture. What I once thought was impossible was becoming totally possible. After being with Lisa for the last five to six weeks, I am amazed at my incredible healing. I was so amazed at Lisa’s ability to identify things that I didn’t know were there for me, but made a lot of sense in the grand scheme of things. Each session was like a new discovery for me. Again, the one element that stands out most for me is that my diabetes was reversed and after almost five weeks I am completely nexium and all other GI medications free after being on them for 20+ years! Yeah AMAZING huh?
Honestly if Lisa can help me in this capacity in such a short time can you imagine what she can do for so many others who are suffering from various ailments? I know ultimately I am my own healer, but the guidance I continue to receive from Lisa is worth its weight in gold. I find that Lisa’s methods of treatment work together with my own body’s wisdom. I am writing this hoping that my words will help many out there get their health back to where it used to be or even better. I love Lisa’s ability to see and feel what is going on with my health. I feel blessed that my friend Susanne recommended Lisa to me so now I am doing the same for everyone out there reading my post. She truly is a gifted healer! I am most grateful for finding Lisa as she has helped me achieve balance and health, and I especially thank her for her gifted guidance. I have no doubt that the success of my recovery from so many ongoing ailments is due to Lisa’s clinical wisdom and dedication to her patients. Thank you Lisa!
