I love acupuncture while I am having it and even later in the day, but I feel like there is too much going on with me that it only works or helps temporarily. It's interesting because the acupuncturist I am going to believes that there are reasons for that. For example, heavy metal issues or gut issues or bigger issues. He is a Chinese Acupuncturist and I like that he sees that it isn't a cure all and doesn't help long term unless the illness isn't as severe.
I am glad that you do feel some benefit, I also see a Chinese Acupuncturist and I cannot believe how well I am doing. I have been going every other week since March and dare I say it the horrendous migraines I have had since 21 seem to have disappeared, at least for the moment. I haven't had one for 12 days and that wasn't too bad. The amount and frequency has changed quite dramatically.
My Chinese Acupuncturist also says there is something else defintely going on with me but he is very accepting of me taking steroids and thyroid medication every day and the treatment seems to work even though I am on the meds.
If everything continues as it is I will go to a treatment every 3rd week.
