Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

March 2, 2008
Since childhood I had a hard time eating certain types of foods. Progressively this became worse as I was growing up. When I was 21, I was able to eat a few grains, non fat food and some fruits. By age 23 I could not eat anything. I would go to the kitchen hungry and eat only a slice of bread or a bowl of cereal for lunch and dinner and I would be in severe pain. I had tried all possible medicines and treatments. I tried allopathic [medicine prescribed by a doctor], and homeopathy. I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and was told that there were no treatments for it. I had gone through all possible GI tests. I suffered extreme fatigue. My weight fluctuated between 96 pounds  and 110 pound during the two years (my height is 5ft 10ins). My body was not absorbing the nutrients from food. I did not know that my problems were due to food allergies. I used to think that they were due to weak intestines, until one day my friend told me to contact Dr. Jin to see if acupuncture could help. I started the treatment at once a week. I could see the difference in my body immediately. I started becoming more energetic and gained a few pounds in a couple of weeks. It might not be too exciting but it was a big breakthrough for me as I was always losing weight steadily in the last 24 months. Most important of all, my abdominal pains stopped. My blood report showed that my cholesterol and protein went slightly high, which meant that my body was absorbing the nutrients. Right now I am not even half way through the treatment. Still, I can see how my body is responding to the treatments. I feel good when I eat non-allergic food for which I have been treated and keep away from allergic food. Thanks Dr. Jin.  ~ R. Z.

It was a great experience to finally receive acupuncture from a great doctor like Dr. Jin, he listened to my concerns and helped me with my IBS problem.  This was my first time trying acupuncture and it took about 8 sessions to feel like a new person.
