Gastroparesis – Very Bad Stomach Problems (nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea for 1 year)

I was having very bad stomach problems including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea for 1 year.

I had scopes down my throat, colonoscopy, and camera capsule studies.  Other than some thickening where the large and small colon meets, the doctors could find nothing wrong.  I was started on Reglan, Nexium, and Endocort.  I lived with a cheese grater & hot iron like pain.

After receiving therapy at Pure Health Acupuncture I feel better now than I did a year ago.  The cheese grater & hot iron stabbing pains are gone.  I don’t get sick and throw up anymore. I feel like Chris is easy to talk to and can look him in the eye with confidence because he took time to really listen to what I had to say.  He talked to me and asked me the questions about what was going on & didn’t just talk to my mom.

The acupuncture treatments really help. It felt weird at first, but was relaxing.  The cupping was quite an unusual experience.  It was really relaxing and was like getting a massage from the inside out.  I told my mom she needed to try it.

The herbs have helped me a lot.  In the past few months I’ve only thrown up a couple of times and I don’t have diarrhea anymore.  I like taking the herbs better then taking prescription medicine because they are natural.  The Focus™ oil is really good too; it helps me not get so anxious at school.
