Fibromyalgia with Chronic Fatigue:
Hi! I am a 45 year old Hispanic
woman. I have fibromyalgia and severe chronic
fatigue syndrome. I was 85% in bed and I was
taking six different medications. Someone had
to do everything for me. My medical doctor told
me there was nothing more they could do for me.
I would just have to learn to live with the pain
and fatigue. Needless to say, I hated life. I
was desperately looking for pain relief. Acupuncture
was recommended to me. I thought, "No Way!!
How could someone poking needles in me, help
me." I was totally against it. Well as time
went on, I got desperate enough to try it. I
called to make my first appointment. I told the
acupuncturist I totally did not believe in acupuncture
but I was in so much pain I was willing to try
it. She told me I had nothing to lose, just come
on in and try it. On my first appointment, I
felt a slight difference, not much but my family
and friends saw a difference in me. On my second
visit, I was pain free. I was so excited! Had
I not personally experienced it myself, I would
never believe it. It was a start to regaining
my life back. My first visit was March 2005.
It is now May 2006 and my life has dramatically
changed. I still have the sickness but I now
live pain free. I only take two medications a
day. I am back to living a normal life. I am
no longer confined to the bed. I can basically
do everything myself. I no longer need to depend
on someone.to do everything for me. Acupuncture
has been such a wonderful experience for me.
I now tell everybody and anybody about it. I
want everybody to experience it. It has made
such a big difference for me. My medical doctor
cannot believe how well I am doing. He tells
me to keep up my acupuncture treatments. I feel
like I could never repay or Thank my acupuncturist,
Qingmei Chen, enough. I went from a non-believer
of acupuncture to a person who loves it. It's
magical. Give it a try. It'll be well worth your
time and efforts.
Now, I am a firm believer
I have been a Type 2 diabetic for 15 years and
I have been taking a medication called Tolazamide
for the condition, later I stared taking Metformin
both twice a day. The side effects of these
medications are not good for the body but the
side effects are better than not treating the
I was introduced to Doctor Chen’s herbal
tea by a friend on January 13, 2006. I usually test
myself twice a day (fasting AM and bedtime PM)
and the results were usually over my approved
levels. Fasting should be between 70 – 140 and
bedtime should be between 100 – 140. When I
started the herbal formula, I noticed a drop
in my bedtime range, fasting also dropped to
an average 70. My average bedtime level went
down to 104 for a three month period (test results
from my healthcare provider). Test by my healthcare
provider on my diabetes for a four month period
after drinking the herbal formula for the same
period, showed that my diabetes was under control.
I no longer take Metformin; I was taken off the
medication by my healthcare provider.
I usually drink the tea in the morning and after
dinner. The numbers are there (I keep a daily
medical log) that Dr. Chen’s herbal treatment
works. My blood sugar levels (Fructosamins/Albumin)
are now well below the approved levels of a diabetic
and are almost normal.
Pain & Blood Glucose Treatment:
I had gone to the doctor for
my ring finger on my right hand. The doctor said
I had "trigger finger and needed surgery. I
decided to try acupuncture as an alternative and
went to Qingmei Chen to have this done. There was
no pain with acupuncture and currently I have no
pain in my finger and have not had pain for some
while. Qingmei Chen has
given me herbs for bloating and for a rash I had
on my leg. Both of these
problems have much improved. I am also taking herbs
for my diabetes. At this time I have seen a lowering
of my blood sugar when I have been monitoring it.
Ear Infection & Pain:
I want to personally thank you for fitting me in
and helping me hear again. When I first met you I
had never been to an acupuncturist. I was at my wits
end. I had been to the doctor and their specialists
due to partial hearing loss in one ear and full loss
in the other. I felt like I was under water and my
ears were completely filled with liquid. I could
not work or sleep because it was worse when I laid
down. On that 1st appointment I felt something draining
in my ear. After 2 weeks I was back to hearing normal
again. I am a huge believer in acupuncture and am
so sorry to know that I have to drive all the way
to San Francisco to see you. It will be well worth
the drive. Thanks again and all the best in the big
I came to Dr. Qing-Mei Chen because of a persistent cough, severe nasal congestion
and labored breathing. Having been a known asthmatic since I was a child, I refused
to take conventional asthmatic medications anymore because their relieving effects were
temporary but their side-effects were long term.
Because I have been on inhaled
steroids for more than ten years, I would frequently
have oral sores and have developed Osteoporosis
at an early age of 34. Prolonged intake of antibiotics
have also weakened my immune system tremendously.
So on my first consultation with Qing-Mei, she gave
me a pulse diagnosis and detected
how low on energy I was. How very true that was!
She gave me an acupuncture and moxibustion treatment
and incredibly after 30 minutes, my nasal congestion
Whereas a nasal decongestant would have had little
effect or none at all on me and would just give
me a bad headache afterwards. She gave me some
to take home and after a little more than a week,
all my asthmatic symptoms subsided.
What conventional medicine couldn't give me in
all the years I have been on them,
Traditional Medicine and Dr. Qing-Mei Chen were able
to treat me minus the side-effects
With just a few painless, relaxing treatment sessions.
I wish I had known her a long time ago.
As a medical doctor in the Philippines, I know all
too well of the good effects as well as
the adverse effects of conventional drugs. It’s
time we consider traditional medicine
As an alternative and integrate it with conventional
medical management especially
In chronic conditions modern science has yet to address.
I finished the soup -- It helped
to keep from getting shingles. You remember
I was very stressed about the turn of events at my
work. Shingles are triggered by my
nervous system that just reacts on its own. Drinking/eating
the the root soup and the very act
of taking the time to do good
for my health has helped me to not break out in shingles.
I have to buy more roots soon. I love
the roots--it was very difficult for me to not add
salt, pepper and butter (margarine) -- Now,
that makes food fit for a king!!
Keep in touch--
