I was diagnosed as severely anemic by my Dr. about 9 months ago. I had no idea – I had clearly learned to live with the tiredness (as many women do)! After some investigation it turned out I had been living with very abnormal and severely heavy monthly menstruation. Again, something I had normalised for over 10 years. After further investigation to uncover the reason for my menorrhagia, there seemed to be no reason so I was given the option to have an ablation and failing that, a hysterectomy (at 42yrs old, that didn’t feel like a great option!). So I turned to alternative health options and was recommended acupuncture. After about 7 sessions, my periods became normal. I had totally forgotten what normal was! In less than three months I went from feeling that I had no option other than surgery to feeling totally healed and back on track. I highly recommend Shine – The Alternative Healthcare’s Acupuncturist. He was so caring and approachable and clearly knew what he was doing! I am so grateful.
