I am a firm believer that any form of healing that has existed for that many centuries probably has the ability to offer some fair good insight into how to live healthy.
When I first seriously chose acupuncture it was when I ruptured a disc (L4/L5) in my late thirties. It was an old Army injury and the pain was excruciating to the point where I couldn’t sleep, walk, sit or stand. My Uncle Walter, the Dude, is a physiatrist and asked me a simple question about whether I would ever consider surgery. And then he told me why rehab was a better option.
But that’s also when I first experienced the power of Dr. Ann. I crawled in and was able to walk out. I needed to see her again but she quickly started to share insights and observations. She would ask questions about my diet and then explain how certain things may have been contributing to weakening my body. For example, nightshades – tomato, peppers, eggplant and potatoes – all bad for my system.
Over time, I integrated her feedback into a lifestyle change that’s making me feel clearer, more present and much more in tune with my own body. And that is key if you want to live a long and happy life.
