My First Step Toward Drug-Free Pain Relief
I slept, maybe 2 hours a night, if I was lucky.
There was no comfortable position to lie in, and standing or sitting was even worse.
I tried physiotherapy and a chiropractor. However, after a string of visits, I wasn’t making any progress. With my options running out; I listened to a friend of mine who swore by acupuncture...
Still… I was desperate for even a small break from the constant pain. So, I forced myself to try it, just to see what would
To my surprise, it was the first taste of being pain-free I’d experienced in months.
The headaches, the neck and back pain, everything was just gone!
However, my renewed optimism didn’t last long.
Within 24 hours, it all came back like a freight train of pain.
The hurt, sluggishness… and the restless nights.
At my next appointment, the acupuncturist told me I’d have to go three times a week if I wanted to end the pain completely. And it could take many months.
Unfortunately, my insurance only covered $500 worth of visits a year so there was no way I’d be able to afford that.
Plus, the time commitment and my fear of needles meant that this was not the alternative I needed.
That’s when something incredible happened.
The lady I’d hit in the accident reached out and wanted to meet me, supposedly about an insurance matter. I was apprehensive but, we arranged to meet at my place.
Let me tell you, that meeting changed my life.
I was relieved that she wasn’t angry at me about the accident at all.
She knew of the problems of modern drugs. When I told her about the temporary relief I’d found through acupuncture, she just smiled.
It turns out that she was a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)…
Dr. Lin Xiaoxi. I had no idea that she was well-known in TCM circles in China.
