My journey back to good health
With gratitude to Steve Phillips, I would like to share with you my journey back to good health.
I began acupuncture treatments with Steve Phillips three months after having pneumonia. I had been on four courses of antibiotics, and was ready to try an alternative to Western medicine. My chest still felt heavy and tight, I had a lingering cough, and I just didn’t feel well.
After starting acupuncture treatments, what I noticed first was that my chest and sinuses didn’t feel quite as tight. As importantly, I felt an underlying calmness that I hadn’t felt before. Over the next three months, my symptoms subsided and, gradually, I felt healthier. Rather than merely treating the symptoms, however, I felt as if I were getting better from the inside out.
Now I can truly say that I feel I have regained my sense of physical and psychological well-being. It’s not to say that I don’t feel down or catch a cold once in awhile. It’s just that I bounce back faster. I feel like myself again…healthy, peaceful and capable of healing myself.
