"I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) in 2001 but have been suffering with the symptoms since 1993. I have searched far and wide for relief of the PCOS symptoms. Some of these frustrating symptoms include; cystic acne, weight gain, fatigue and extremely irregular and painful periods (i.e. a year without a menstrual cycle and then a year of three, 90 day periods!) I have tried everything from Western medicines (of which doctors would only prescribed birth control pills that only mask the underlying problem) to herbs, dietary cleanses, energy work, Ayurvedic medicine and acupuncture.
Previously, I had tried acupuncture and Chinese herbs to which I had to cook myself stinking up my home for what seemed like hours. Needless to say, this was not fun and definitely not a sustainable option for me. Plus, I only had mild and temporary relief from the PCOS issues during these treatments. It wasnít until I went to Jade Spring Wellness Center that I have finally found success in overcoming this frustrating syndrome.
The acupuncturists have treated me specifically for this hormonal condition and Mia Song, the owner of JSWC, has given me Chinese herb granules to help balance out my system. I almost can not believe the shift that happened when I started on these herbs!!! For those that do not know, PCOS is an imbalance of female hormones which cause eggs to get imbedded in the walls of the ovaries making the ovarian walls thick and large (nearly each as large as the uterus) and, therefore, causing a lot of build up of blood and stagnation. In two days of taking the herbs Mia gave me I started to shed old blood!!! (Sorry if this is too much information.) Instantly, my energy improved. My sleep improved even though I didnít know it needed to and I have shed those extra pounds I was holding on to. I now feel a sense of normalcy I had never felt before in my life as an adult.
As a side bar, I also want to state that weight loss has been a usual result of treatment at Jade Spring. I know other friends that have had treatment at the center and have found themselves a few pounds lighter without changing anything else in their lives. This acupuncture style definitely does a great balancing act for the bodily systems and it shows!
Grateful, seems even too small or menial a word to use for my better health. I bow down in appreciation for Mia Song and the smart, kind and healing acupuncturists at Jade Spring for helping to heal something I have worked on for over 16 years.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."
"In the last year I have had severe bleeding, cramping, and fatigue from ovarian fibroids. The symptoms were affecting how I function in my everyday life. My gynecologist claimed that, because of the size of my fibroids, there was nothing they could do. A friend who had similar issues gave me a gift certificate to Jade Spring Wellness Center. At my first session Mia Song assured me that the symptoms could be controlled within three months through the use of Chinese herbs and acupuncture. In two months I noticed a major shift in the symptoms, and in three months I was back to a regular cycle. I strongly believe that this would not have been possible without my team of Jewell Smith and Mia Song.
"I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) in April 2009 by my gynecologist. This caused severe pressure and pain in my side from the time of ovulation until several days after menstruation. Between these symptoms as well as PMS, my daily physical activity was greatly impacted. Instead of taking birth control pills, which the gynecologist said was the only allopathic treatment; I started an herbal formula prescribed to me by Mia Song. My pain was greatly reduced with my very next cycle and only continued to improve with each subsequent cycle. My recent test showed far few cysts than appeared a year ago. I feel the herbs are more holistic and have helped to fix the problem instead of just cover up the symptoms. I would definitely recommend Mia's formula for PCOS or other gynecological problems!"
