Pain was just a word that stands for some minor injuries throughout all my life… I never thought that it would affect my life to an extend it almost made me dysfunctional at an age of 34. Coming from a very athletic background and can be categorized almost hyperactive, when I started feeling the excruciating back pain and sciatica pain my whole world flipped upside down. I was diagnosed with 3 herniated discs; 2 in Lumbar area and 1 in Thoracic.
It all started about ten years ago. The pain, that is. I developed urinary tract infection and shortly after kidney stones, in which doctors had no explanation for their causes. I would visit urologists on a monthly basis and thousands of dollars later, the pain was still there. I was given a few options: surgery, taking medicine for the rest of my life, or absolutely nothing. It got to the point where pain just became part of my normal life.
"Hi dr. Eva
Short note to let you know all was good in today's race!!!!
I finished my half marathon in pretty good condition.
I first came to Eva for headaches. I had done everything that western medicine suggested and everything just seemed to be a short term remedy. I got headaches every day for 2 years. The headaches were pretty bad, where smells and sounds would bother me. A friend suggested acupuncture and although I was a little hesitant at first, I finally gave in and came to see Eva. She thoroughly explained the procedure and expectations.
"I have been suffering with lower back pain for several years. It had gotten so bad that I had to take a trip to the ER, and all I got were several pain killers meds.
I have not known anything about the power of acupuncture treatment until I had my panic attack few months ago. There aren’t words that could describe the worst feeling of having a panic attack. I use to feel heat, flashes, dizziness, and heaviness in my body.
“Thank you for all your good work in helping my mother Nancy gain the confidence to postpone her scheduled knee surgery. As planned she went to N.Y. and followed your recommendation walking daily and she lost 5 pounds.
I was first referred to Eva for a massage over 6 years ago. From the first touch she gave I knew I she had a great hand. The massages she gave from that point forward were so good that I became completely hooked on all the variations of massages Eva offers from traditional deep tissue to hot stone to traditional Thai massages. About 9 months ago I decided to take several different changes in my life including the my overall quality of life as related to my chronic asthma.
I am a 50-year-old female. I sought out Eva’s help for two reasons. The first was to address my kidneys. I had gotten a test back that showed microscopic blood in my urine and I had throbbing in my left kidney. An ultrasound showed nothing. The doctor didn’t know what was wrong with me. Secondly I was going through menopause and was very unbalanced; hot flashes, heart palpitation and total exhaustion from interrupted sleep. I tried bioidentical hormones but I could not get balanced. I had hit rock bottom and needed help!
I have been suffering with digestive problems and vertigo for many years. I went to medical doctors and had many procedures done, however, no one was able to diagnosis anything except a “lazy gallbladder”, irritated bowel syndrome for the digestive problem and inner ear crystals for the vertigo.
In late 2008, almost two years ago, during a routine check up I was diagnosed with a Thyroid problem. My physician and the specialist I was referred to run all the test including the Iodine up take and the diagnosis which they came up with was to start the treatment based on the western medicine drug. I had known Eva since before and I asked her if there was a way Acupuncture could treat my Thyroid problem; off course her answer was YES.
