What our patients are saying...Written by administrator
From Don T.:
"Before I came to Stillpoint in Jan. or Feb. 2006, I was struggling physically and mentally to get through each day. In Sept. 2005 I had a TIA (minor stroke). After which the doctors ran me through a battery of tests and differing x-rays to try and determine its cause. They decided it was a heart blockage. But when they performed a heart cauterization to insert a stent to correct the blockage the cardiologist concluded it wasn’t a blockage at all but my heart had suffered a deterioration from a viral infection and a stent wouldn’t help.
My Family and I were told only a heart transplant could fix the problem. I was told, however, because of my age, 65, I was too old to be put on a transplant list. The only hope they held out was that they would do all they could to keep me comfortable while I should get my affairs in order and rest as much as possible. I was told I had maybe a few weeks, months, maybe a year to live. It was explained to us that the heart muscle, unlike other body tissue, cannot regenerate itself. They prescribed many medications including Coumadin, which necessitated a weekly blood draw and exams. They offered no hope.
This week on Sept. 10,  my doctor released me from the last of heart medications pronouncing me completely and miraculously healed. The credit in great part belongs to Stillpoint who nurtured me back to health with regular acupuncture treatments, herbal teas, nutrients, and most of all their confident and positive approach that I could and would be healed.”
From Emily G.:
“My stomach was so weak and sensitive to anything I pretty much ate. I had to leave restaurants after I ate with a bloated/upset stomach, major headache, and the feeling of throwing up. My cramps on my period were very painful and so bad I would have to leave school early and take pain medications just to get rid of them. I had a very high gag reflex.
My stomach has healed so much now that I’m aware of what I can and can’t eat, and also from taking herbal supplements to help it. I can now eat out at restaurants and not feel like I’m going to be sick. This process has helped my cramps disappear and also my headaches, backaches, and shoulder pains. I now rarely gag when I brush my teeth.”
From Ardith O.:
"For Years, I have had a feeling like a constant sunburn on my skin. Everything hurt. Clothing, seat belts, armrests, bed sheets, they all caused me pain that could be almost unbearable. In addition, I had major depression, anxiety, and almost daily vomiting. I had seen traditional M.D.s and specialists who were unable to help me that I would most likely be on prescription medication for depression for the rest of my life, and the pills that I was on had never worked very well I was unable to work or function normally.
I called Stillpoint Acupuncture with hope that they could offer a temporary reprise from the pain. Instead, through a combination of acupuncture and NRT, I feel better than I have in as long as I can remember. My pain is gone. I am off of my prescription for depression and feel much better emotionally than I did on it. My vomiting is almost completely cured. I can not recommend Stillpoint Acupuncture highly enough. Thank you for giving me my life back!"
From K. W.:

After: All are significantly improved."
From Marguerite I.:
"I brought my 3 yr old son because of the need to manage his food allergies. He is on the autism spectrum and significantly delayed. Per their encouragement I also started the NRT program. There wasn't any notable health concerns on my end, but being a busy mom of two small kids I knew it was important for me to take care of myself.
We've seen significant improvements in my son in only 6 weeks. In addition to food allergies we've also focused on detox. His eye contact, energy, and general sense of well being has notably improved. He was just selected Student of the Month in preschool. I've noticed an improvement in my digestion, energy, and balance. Things I had not realized were even a problem. I'm so happy we made this choice for my family!"Last Updated on 18 April 2011
