year, I was experiencing a very heavy flow of menstrual bleeding. I lost
a lot of blood since I was bleeding continually for 2 1/2months and became
anemic. I felt like I was loosing my life force. I went to my gynecologist
and he did a biopsy to check for cancer. Fortunately that turned out all
right as no cancer cells were found, however the bleeding continued and
I felt drained of energy. I came to see Lei Shaw for acupuncture. After
the first treatment nothing much happened, so I went back for a second
treatment 3 weeks later. In this session Lei also used moxa to stimulate
(warm) the meridian to the spleen. After that the most amazing thing happened.
The following night I did not need to get up to change my pad, and within
2 days the bleeding had totally stopped. The following week some light
bleeding returned, but I burned the moxa, and it stopped again.
I am at the
age of moving into menopause and I now know that some women experience
heavy bleeding because of hormonal imbalances at that time. I am very
grateful for Lei's expertise and knowledge as my other choices would have
been first a D and C and then possibly a hysterectomy. This experience
has certainly shown me that acupuncture is a most powerful way to work
with the human body. Thank you Lei for your good work.
