After a rabbit hole of google searches for alternative treatments and remedies, I took a stab in the dark and decided to try acupuncture. I found an acupuncturist that had great reviews for treating women for fertility, so I figured she’d probably be able to help me with fibroids since it’s a condition of the uterus.
Life-changing is the only way to describe my experience. Not only did I feel better after my first treatment, but she also gave me an explanation of why I had fibroids, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine. She actually asked me questions about what I was eating, my emotional health, and things that I needed to do to improve and even heal my condition. This appointment was the first time anyone ever asked me about my lifestyle and really explained how the body works. The experience empowered me to take care of myself and manage my health in a way that I had never done.
Acupuncture was my gateway to better health. I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all protocol for well-being, but I do believe that sharing our experiences and knowledge gives others the building blocks they need to build a better way of life.
