Thirty Years of Headache

I have some friends with severe headaches and they would say that “my headache is so severe that I want to take my head off” or ” my headache is so severe that I want to hit my head against the wall”. It is the truth.

Having taken pain-killers for my headache for almost 30 years, I was so worried about the side effects that I tried to search traditional medicine for help. I looked for a kind of medical treatment that permanently cures this headache with no side effects. Two years ago, I received Tu-Na three times a week from an acupuncturist who came from China. She thought that my headache is caused by back stiffness which is in turn caused by the accumulation of neck and shoulder stiffness. She tried Tu-Na to relax it, but it didn’t help. Last November I had a terrible headache, since then I began to receive acupuncture treatment. I had never thought that my headache could actually be completely cured.

After I had already tried all the different medical treatments, I met Dr. Fu who is even more patient than me, who wants to cure my headache even more than me. This let me see the light at the end of the tunnel.

So I cooperated with Dr. Fu. During every treatment, Dr. Fu would ask me “does it hurt here?” for every acu point on every meridian. This kind of conversation would repeat numerous times. He found more than 10 pain spots around just the Tai-Yang acu-point. He found the pain spots one by one and did the needling one by one. First the head then the neck; the front then the matching acupoints on the hands and feet to better the results. Headache is like a ever-moving devil. Sometimes hiding in the back and sometimes showing off at the front. Sometimes it is just a little irritant, sometimes it would explode with pain. Today’s pain’s location may not be the same as yesterday’s. It is just like Whack-A-Mole. You have to treat them one by one with a lot of patience and determination.

Dr Fu often reminded me “to avoid catching a cold while outside, remember to wear a scarf and protect the mouth and nose”, and “after using the spa at night remember to dry the body first then wear the wool cap and bath robe” “remember to take your herbal medicine everyday and be mindful of the pillow’s height when you are sleeping and to dry your hair after taking a shower” After these reminders Dr. Fu said with a wry smile “I am like a mom talking to her little kids”. Actually I am not that fragile, I just have a really severe case of headaches and need the doctor’s reminders and self-restraint to prevent the headaches from occurring.

During the treatment process, the frequency, amount of pain, and duration of the headaches lessened. I went from receiving treatment three times a week to twice a week to once a week and then once a month and finally I “graduated”; so good! Thanks to Dr. Fu .

Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, Infertility

I am a 37 years old woman and married for three years now.  My husband and I had been trying to have a baby for over years.  After trying ovulation stimulator with no results and undergo few infertility test, I was told that I have Hysteromyoma and my ovulation was abnormal. As time went on, my symptoms got worsened. I began to realize that I have overlooked my ovulation problem and the abnormal activity has induced endometrial polyps build up in my body, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome which might be the major cause of my infertility.  My OB advised me if my health condition persisted then having children would be very difficult. I was really shocked and felt very sad since I really want to have a baby.  I took the advice of my doctor and receive a laparoscopic surgical procedure to remove endometrial polyps.  After the surgery, I was placed on progesterone for a period of time. I felt very depressed and worry since this treatment did not seem an acceptable option for us and a complete recovery may take rather a long time.

Just then, I was introduced to Dr. Fu’s acupuncture and clinic from the website. I’ve never receive any acupuncture treatment before.  But in my mind I felt the acupuncture treatment and Chinese medicine might help my condition.   I was very glad to meet Dr. Fu as he is a very patient doctor and has extensive knowledge about acupuncture.  He made everything clear and easy to understand.  For the first consultation, Dr. Fu took time to check my pulse, understand my health condition and get to the root of the problem.  He then explained what the treatments were supposed to be doing for me and what he was focusing on in my particular case.  He also informed me that the treatment might take few months.   I started seeing him for acupuncture treatment every week for five months.

I was surprised that the acupuncture did not hurt, and was actually very relaxing.   Although I really want to get pregnant at the time, the treatment helps me not to think about pregnancy but for the cause of gaining a good health.  Through the whole process, Dr. Fu was supportive, kind, and nonjudgmental. He worked with me and made me comfortable and his optimism and encouragement kept us from giving up.  Dr. Fu really treats his patient like a family member and provides a well planned treatment to help patient gains optimal result.  When he prescribed Chinese medicine, he made adjustment periodically according to my health condition.

Under his care for five months, I got pregnant!   My husband and I were very happy.  I continued to see Dr. Fu and I had a wonderful pregnancy with no discomfort or any other pregnancy symptoms. I will always be grateful to Dr. Fu and his staffs for helping me to improve my health and also making my dream come true of being a mom! I would highly recommend Dr. Fu and his clinic to people who suffered from infertility.
