Piya: 33 years old, a housewife in Maryland. She visited my office on 11/20/2010 and said she has had
infertility for 6 years. The doctor diagnosed her with endometriosis and PCOS(polycystic ovary
syndrome ). After 6 unsuccessful IUI(Intrauterine insemination) and 3 unsuccessful IVF(In vitro
fertilization ) treatments, she came to my office to seek help from acupuncture and Chinese herbs.
After 3 months of treatments, she got pregnant. Now she has a healthy baby boy and enjoys family life.
Acupuncture with recurrent miscarriages
Diana: 41 years old. She had PCOS and uterus surgery for correcting uterine abnormities. She has had 3
miscarriages from 2008 to 2009. In 2010, she tried 3 IUI and did not get pregnant. Her doctor suggested
to try IVF, she refused because she did not have problems with pregnancy, but did have the problem of
miscarriage. Due to the stressful process of IVF and IUI, she came to my office to try getting pregnant
naturally and avoid miscarriage using the acupuncture treatment on 05/05/2010 . After 3 months of
treatments, she got pregnant. To maintain a pregnancy, she kept acupuncture treatment bi-weekly for
4 months after she got pregnant. Now she has a healthy baby boy and has sent me boy's picture.
Acupuncture with male infertility (low sperm counts)
Jay: 36 years old. He first visited my office on 01/09/2010 and complained about infertility and stress
for 3 years. His sperm counts is low about 6-12 millions/ml(the normal range is 20-100 million per ml of
semen). The sperm shape and mobility is normal and his testicular biopsy is normal too.
He hesitated to come to my office to try acupuncture and herbal treatments at first. Due to her wife's
insistence, he came. I have given him acupuncture weekly and herbal tea every day. After 4 months, his
doctor collected his sperm and found the sperm counts have increased, and was enough to do IVF
procedure. He bought donated sperm before the IVF procedure, then he returned it. His wife got
pregnant after that and now they have a wonderful baby son.
Acupuncture for Tourette's Syndrome and ADHD
Helen: 10 years old. She visited my office on 11/12/2011. She has had Tourette's Syndrome (TS) and
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) for 3 years. Her major symptom was slapping her face
by herself and a long squeak sound from her throat. These symptoms occur about 70 episodes per day,
which affects her school life and other students, and also embarrasses her. Her symptoms gets worse
when she is under stress or anxiety. Her neurologist prescribed Risperidone and Topomax, which helped
her a little. After 15 sessions of acupuncture treatments, her symptoms of TS had improved about 80%.
Some days, she does not have those symptoms at all. Right now, she still has acupuncture treatments
biweekly for maintenance . Her parents are very happy about the her daughter's improvement.
