I have nothing against my doctor, clinic, or insurance. However, I feel like I am taking my chase there whenever I have to complete my 3 month check up. It is efficient and successful and routine. One week I give up some blood and some urine. The next week I see the doctor. Before I go into the room, I am weighed, then in the room my blood pressure is taken. Finally, the doc comes in and reads and interprets my data. I only take two prescriptions. For months now, all my data is satisfactory.
And when I have a chance, I go to see the acupuncturist. For me, she is my real doctor. She is an MD, a nutritionist, and an acupuncturist. My latest visit has been amazing. You see, I am an addict. I love cigarettes and have been hiding this horrible habit out of shame. I decided to finish with it.
Under treatment, I can see that I am able to reclaim my life. She doesn't just do acupuncture for the cessation of smoking, but she offers helpful suggestions, herbs, and other detoxing treatments. I have tried to get away from this addiction and not been successful. I see that I really needed a coach, someone who actually is invested in this process, someone I felt a connection to and could trust.
She is a tiny woman from Colombia. Her English is impeccable. She exudes confidence and serenity in her very walk. She truly inspires me.
