Dear Yuri, Before I came to see you, I had never experienced acupuncture. Your gentle ways and kind support enabled me to change my diet and begin to wean myself off prescription medications. I have many food and drug allergies contributing to my illness of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, arthritis, obesity, and latent diabetes. The ensuing poor circulation and sleep apnea have begun to remedy themselves due to the diet changes, exercise and cessation of prescription medication. I plan to return to acupuncture with you as soon as it is financially feasible. You helped address the pain in my body and mind. I am forever grateful to you. Sincerely, Paula Catherine S.
