Gastro-Intestinal and Digestive Disorders
This is the part of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and Acupuncture that inspired me to go in to this field. I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (This is a type of Auto-Immune disease that is an Inflammatory Bowel Disease) at age 24.
I was experiencing the most pain I had ever felt in my life (and I gave birth without drugs). I had very little energy. My body was deteriorating, and I lost a lot of weight that I didn’t have to lose. I spent a week in hospital and a scope found that 90% of my colon was ulcerated. Going to the hospital saved my life, as I was not able to digest anything by that point. I was given medication that I was told I’d need to be on for the rest of my life.
A friend of mine had been diagnosed with the same auto-immune disease the year before me, and had been using TCM and Acupuncture to heal. I thought “Why not?” and booked myself in with a practitioner who had himself been through recovery from Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
After 6 months of treatments, I was able to reduce, and eliminate my need for medication. Further scopes have revealed no evidence of disease. I signed up for school at the Academy of Classical Oriental Sciences in Nelson, BC. After I completed this 4 year program, I became a fully licensed Acupuncturist in 2004 and I am happy to report that my most recent scope in 2021 shows no evidence of disease.
