"When I discontinued my birth control pills after using them for 6 years, I began suffering from the following issues :
1) Amenorrhea- Absent menstrual cycles for over 1 year
3) Scalp Hair Loss, hair falling out in clumps in the shower
4) Excess facial and body hair
6) Ovarian Cysts
I went to see many different doctors who each told me that I needed to go BACK on Birth Control Pills. Since my husband and I want to begin a family, this did not seem an acceptable option for us. As time went on, my symptoms worsened. We decided to see a reproductive endocrinologist. This “expert” gave me three options: go back on birth control pills, go on Metformin (a drug prescribed for diabetics), or use fertility drugs to get pregnant.
My husband and I were heartbroken because neither one of us were comfortable with any of these options. So we decided to research some natural approaches to treating PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). This is how we found Vanessa.
From day one, I knew I was in great hands because Vanessa spent more time with me on my first visit than any of the 8 doctors spent with me altogether. She was thorough, professional and EXTREMELY knowledgeable on the subject. Most of all, she was confident she could help me WITHOUT THE USE of MEDICATION.
I started seeing Vanessa 2 times per week. She helped me make some changes to my diet, she took the time to help me understand WHY these changes were necessary, she gave me some vitamins, and within 2 months, she had corrected the majority of my symptoms!!!!
My family and friends are truly amazed at the changes they have seen in me. My cycles have returned, my skin is clear, my hair has grown back and is thicker than it has ever been. I feel better and healthier than I ever have. Looking back, I find it very disheartening that all of these doctors had been so QUICK to prescribe more medication to me. Not one of them ever mentioned making small changes to my diet. Vanessa has helped me understand that it is important to get to the root of the problem instead of trying to put a band aid on multiple symptoms. Acupuncture is an entirely different world of medicine than what many of us are used to. I am so grateful to have found Vanessa. She truly is a Healer!"
