Good morning!

Just make sure you find someone you feel comfortable with and can talk to. It's important they get to know you.

Have a great Sunday!

I tried acupuncture a while ago but it really didn't work for me. Might try again when the time is right to see if it will help the weight loss. Used it for back pain before.

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

My son is an Acupuncturist and excellent. I highly recommend this for anyone with numerous
difficulties. He has helped me without any pain. Those of you who are afraid of needles, these needles are so thin and do not hurt.
Try it....

I first went to an accupuncturist after a brown recluse spider bit so I wouldn't have such a horrible reaction and end up having a lot of dead tissue.... I was amazed at how well I felt after a few visitis, still fighting the venom and needing antibiotics and daily IV fluids to help combat the fluids list in the fever
Then when I was fighting cancer, after each of my chemo treatments I would have a short acupuncture session and it allowed me to not feel the horrible side effects of the chemo and radiation and it helped me heal much fast from the surgeries I needed to have in the process. SO I say it's a great idea. if you can afford it.
I had no idea what to expect from acupuncture but I know that it made me feel great and I had some strange sensations but it was all so interesting and easy.

be authentically you...
it's journey, not a one day hike.

I am also 66 and dealing with unexpected issues. A couple years ago I developed pain in a hip joint and figured it was age-realted arthritis. My MD prescribed OTC pain relievers, although they carry the risk of ugly side effects. About a year after that visit I fell and hurt my back (bowling with my son and grandson, if you can believe that) and ended up at the chiropractor's. I mentioned the hip. He used acupuncture for both issues, total of 2 treatments only, and was able to get rid of the pills entirely. That was a another year ago.I'm a believer. I don't know all of its uses and/or limitation, but it would certainly be worth a try. Good luck!

I was reading about accupuncture in a brochure at my doctors office yesterday. My aunt is having this done for her fibromyalgia and she said it has worked wonders for her pain. I would give it a go!

Good morning!

I went to see my Acupuncturist yesterday. I haven't seen her in a while. She told me my digestion is not quite up to snuff; something do to with my spleen. (Being 66 my digestion has slowed down a bit. A little assist is needed.) She told me that might be why I'm not losing the weight I would like to be losing. So, along with putting those needles where they needed to go, she suggested some Chinese herbs that might help.

I had taken them before when I first started going to see her about three years ago, but had changed to another digestive about a year ago. How many times have I said, "Don't fix it if it ain't broke"?!

I'm thinking of adding acupuncture to my wellness package for the next three or four months. Couldn't hurt!

Have a great weekend!
