decided to see Dr. Huang regarding something that I've lived since
I was a teenager. My legs - especially my ankles have always been
swollen. I also bruise easily and my feet - especially my toes
are darker than the rest of my body. Whenever I have brought this
up with western doctors (for the last 20 years,) they run urine
and blood tests and then tell me that 'nothing came back abnormal'
so they are unable to help me. On my first visit, Dr. Huang told
me that my legs are swollen because my kidneys are not functioning
correctly and that this is caused by stress. She also told me
that the darkness on my feet is caused by bad circulation. Dr.
Huang has been treating me with acupuncture and herbs and for
the first time since I can remember, my feet look "normal' - no
darkness! Managing my stress along with the herbs & acupuncture
has also relieved the swelling in my legs & ankles. Dr. Huang
is the best!"
had a shoulder injury for more than a year before seeing Dr. Huang.
I had gone to western doctors, but they were unable to help me.
I received a cortisone shot and the Dr. told me that it would
help with the pain, but that it would not help heal my shoulder.
Frustrated with this information and the constant pain, I decided
to try acupuncture. From the first visit, I knew it was going
to be different. Dr. Huang asked me to undressed complete, 'but
I'm here for my shoulder' I said. That's OK; she said, "We treat
the whole body." Dr. Huang treated me with acupuncture and herbs
for approximately 3 months and my shoulder pain is now gone. I
am fortunate to have found her."
