About Me

Leukemia survivor.

Shared experience with Chemotherapy 9 years ago

In my intense battle with a very aggressive form of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), I believe acupuncture has made a critical difference in helping me not only to survive, but to actually thrive as my good health has gradually returned to me. I was part of a clinical trial that world-wide had shown tremendous promise in putting difficult forms of leukemia like mine into remission. Thirteen of us began this trial. At it’s end, I was the sole survivor. The side effects of the drugs I took were excruciating in the extreme. I finally understood that something had to change when my liver counts became dangerously elevated. I found a caring, gifted acupuncturist, who is the very definition of a healer. Within a couple of months, the differences in my overall condition were dramatic. My liver counts began to descend to more normal levels, and my blood counts began to rise. My white, immune boosting cells increased, as did my red cells, especially my platelets. I was able to eat more and sleep better. I continued with my wonderful acupuncturist as I went through the challenging steps of a bone-marrow transplant. Working together, acupuncture and traditional medicine achieved a complementary balance that eventually gave me the precious gift of remission.
