As I write this, I am sitting next to my two-month-old son who came into our lives after almost three years of trying to conceive. After two years of trying unsuccessfully on our own, countless sonograms, blood tests, and hysterosalpinograms - all inconclusive - my doctors told me it was time to try hormone therapy, IUI or IVF. I felt very strongly that this was not the path for me. For several years, I had suffered from irregular, painful and heavy periods, allergic skin rashes, insomnia, muscular pain and lethargy. Put simply, I was completely out of balance. I felt that if I could just get as healthy and balanced as possible, then if it was meant to be, pregnancy would follow. After being told about the benefits of acupuncture from a friend, I read an article about Carolyn, visited this website and decided to make an appointment. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Within three weeks of beginning treatments, my energy level skyrocketed. Within three months, my skin rashes and insomnia were improved, and my periods were more regular, lighter and less painful. I had never felt better! With my improved health came an improved sense of well-being and confidence. I knew that pregnancy was right around the corner. Well, it took eleven months of treatments, along with lifestyle and dietary changes including a Chinese herbal regimen, but I was able to conceive naturally. Carolyn made me feel like I was her only and most important patient. During those eleven months, she held my hand, prayed with me and cried with me. On the day I walked into her office and told her I was finally pregnant, it was a moment I will never forget. Carolyn is truly a gifted healer in every sense of the word and I am forever grateful to her for my new life!
