Menopause Symptoms and Osteoarthritis: Jan 2008

My name is Joanne Squires. I am a 59 year old retired nurse. I came to see Dr. Quan because of severe menopause symptoms and osteoarthritis in my hands. I truthfully came as a last measure as I had done everything that my family doctor had suggested to ease my symptoms but my quality of life reindexed poor. The unrelenting hot flashes and insomnia left me chronically fatigued. I was having cortisone injections in my fingers every 3-4 months to ease the inflammation which helped for a short time and I was wearing braces for my thumb joints. After eight acupuncture treatments with Dr. Quan, my hot flashes are down to 1 or 2/day instead of every 2 hours and I am able to go back to sleep if a hot flash comes in the night. I finally feel rested and energetic again. The pain in my fingers is greatly reduced. I do not require the brace any longer and am able to enjoy playing the piano again. Best of all, I am drug free. My one regret is that I did not seek help from Dr. Quan earlier.

Excessive sweating:

I first went to see Dr. Quan a year and a half ago, for my hyperhidrosis (basically, extensive sweating without any apparent reason or cause). I’ve had this condition my whole life, but in the previous years it had been getting worse and worse. I’d tried many things, such as medications and lotions, and nothing seemed to help my sweating.

When I went to see Dr. Quan, it was sort of as a last hope – western medicine had failed me so I thought I’d give traditional eastern medicine a try. At this point, I had severe sweating on my hands, feet and underarms and milder sweating almost all over me.

I was nervous at first, because I don’t like needles, but I found that the needles are tiny and they don’t hurt at all. After 3 appointments and some herbs she made up for me, I began to notice an improvement. I was still quite clammy, but my hands weren’t drippy and I could go barefoot without making wet spots on the floor. After 5 appointments, I was only clammy during a few hours each day, and it was only my hands and feet, no where else.

After a few more appointments and herbs, I considered myself cured. If I was hot or nervous, I’d sweat, but that’s perfectly normal. It was wonderful – I was sweat free for the first time in my life and now I can wear clothes in any colour or fabric without worrying about sweat marks on it. I shake hands with people with confidence, because I know that I won’t see a grimace on their faces.

Dr. Quan and her acupuncture and herbs have changed my life. I have recommended her to several people, with various health problems, and she has managed to help them as well. I would strongly recommend Dr. Quan and her medicine to anyone.

Menopausal symptoms: Dec 2003

In May 2003, I was menopausal and had been suffering with night sweats and the resultant poor sleep for nearly a year. My family doctor had prescribed many different medications and herbs, all to no avail. I went to see Dr. Quan to see if acupuncture could be beneficial.

She took a detailed history and noted some physical signs, and was sure that acupuncture could alleviate my problem. Over the following month I had 5 sessions with numerous acupuncture points, and took her herbal remedy, and now, in late October, I continue to have restorative sleep and do not experience hot sweats.

I would highly recommend that women sharing my complaint try acupuncture.

Menstrual Pain:
I have suffered from extremely painful menstrual cramps for over 10 years. My family physician recommended birth control to help with the pain, but I was still taking a lot of Ibuprofen to control the pain. I made the decision to discontinue taking birth control and the pain was so bad that my doctor recommended Tylenol 3. At this point I started acupuncture and herbal treatments with Sarah and within 2 months the cramps were so minimal that I did not have to take any medication at all! I continue to see Sarah once a month for indextenance and I am still taking the herbs until the pain is completely gone. I can't believe how well acupuncture has w orked and I recommend it as an alternative source of health care.

Yeast Infection:
For years I suffered from yeast infections. I went to the doctor who would prescribe the creams and the Diflucan pill. The symptoms did clear up but then they would be back and when I asked the doctor if there was an actual cure so I wouldn't get it anymore I didn't get a straight answer.
I started with the acupuncture and I started a sugar and bread free diet. Since I started the acupuncture I have not had a recurrence of the infection. I have also noticed that I have a lot more energy and when the different colds and flu's go around work I don't catch anything. I would recommend this to someone who is suffering from reacurrant yeast infections and don't forget to stick to the sugar free diet.
