Thyroid Problem

New Realm Acupuncture (NRA) was recommended to me by a co-worker. For a while I was very skeptical about acupuncture. I finally got enough courage to try NRA because I did not want to take medications for the rest of my life.

My doctor and also an endocrinologist had diagnosed me with possible hyperthyroidism and had mentioned that I may have to take medications. Simultaneously my husband and I were trying to have another child which made it a little more difficult for us to conceive because of the imbalance hormones. Within 5 to 6 weeks of going to New Realm Acupuncture Center my thyroid (via blood tests) were normal and I was pregnant.

Its been over a year since my initial visit to New Realm and I am a firm believer of acupuncture as I visit New Realm Acupuncture for various heath concerns.

Thyroid Problem

I had experience with acupuncture before, so when the doctors were telling me I had cancerous nodules on my thyroid I immediately decided to try alternative treatment first. The statistics were low that the nodules actually would be cancer and I wanted to see if I could reduce the size or make them completely dissolve before having surgery to have my right lobe removed or possibly my entire thyroid. Removal of part or all of the thyroid requires medicine indefinitely. I searched in the yellow pages for an acupuncturist and New Realm was the first place I called. I consider myself lucky to have found a good acupuncturist.

After six weeks of acupuncture treatments, yoga, meditation, visualization and adopting a vegetarian diet, the size of the nodules reduced by half. I am on the right path and I feel with Dr. Gao and Jing’s help I will not lose my thyroid and my overall well being will be considerably better. Many thanks to them for their knowledge and compassion in dealing with me as a whole person and not just a symptom that walked through the door.
