I have been seeing Ali regularly for several months now. Initially I was referred to Ali for fertility issues, but I am glad to say that Ali does not just focus on this. I like the fact that she takes a complete holistic approach and has treated me for many symptoms that have been unrelated to fertility. As a result my body is more balanced and I have a general feeling of wellbeing, both physically and mentally.
Ali has treated me for my eczema which was a big irritant on a regular basis, this is now subsiding and is more manageable, rather than the constant scratching and the soreness. What I have found is that Ali will not only treat the ailment with acupuncture but will then give me general advice, such as what foods to avoid to stop the flare-ups, to go for a swim to cool the skin, to cool down the temperature in the shower, all of this then helps a person to keep the symptoms under control and helps you to understand what’s happening with your body and how to manage it.
Ali also helps me with my hyperhidrosis, a problem I have had since childhood and in the past I have used a machine at home to give myself treatments to help with the condition. Ali did not just ignore this condition, even though I did not come to her to help me with it. Every time she will ask about it and will use the acupuncture again to help me manage it. The symptoms are not completely cured but it is manageable to the point that I have not bothered to use the treatment given to me by the hospital. I wish now that I had known about acupuncture years ago, it would have saved me from so much heartache and embarrassment.
I also suffer a lot from migraines, practically every day, but I can confidently say that these are not coming every day now, I have had respite for several days and I am waiting for the time that these are completely gone, it will be such a relief not to have that sharp pain behind the eyes, I am confident that these will one day disappear. They are getting less and less painful and less and less regular.
As for the fertility, Ali is preparing my body for my first round of ivf, when and not if I have good news, I will be reporting back to her website to announce it. Ali has seen me through the ups and downs every month and has even introduced me to one of her clients who has talked to me, advised me and helped me to finally come to a decision about where I wanted to go for the treatment. I am feeling quite confident and upbeat about starting the process and I know that I have two people in the background that will support me throughout it, Ali and her client are always there, advising, encouraging and giving a positive outlook.
I don’t feel that this is just a treatment of acupuncture, this is a person who will go out of their way to help you, will advise you, will sit with you when you’re upset, will give you positive words of encouragement. I cannot recommend Ali enough and have no hesitation in going back to her for any treatment, I would rather go to Ali first than a doctor anyday. (Healthy baby girl “T” arrived safely).
