Acupuncture update

Having now had several acupuncture appointments and started taking a herbal remedy, I am feeling the best I have done in years.

I hardly ever have to take antihistamine tablets (maybe once or twice a week – but then it is spring here) and I just got through menstruation without taking any painkillers at all – I honestly have no memory of the last time that happened.  I did have some ‘inconsequential discomfort’ (of the kind which a few years ago would’ve sent me running for painkillers – it’s amazing what you learn to live with), but the herbs sorted things out real fast.  And I’m still nowhere near the maximum allowed dosage of the herbs!

I have no idea what the effect is in Western medical terms.  I presume that having my chi flowing more smoothly means the endometriosis is not getting so aggravated or something.  I certainly can’t argue with the results.  I had dared to be hopeful for some relief, but I was really not expecting such a great result.  I’m almost looking forward to next month!  (‘Almost’ because it’s a bit hard to get over years of fear in a single month.)

I am now on monthly maintenance visits to keep myself in good shape: I do like this idea that preventing problems is a good thing.

And I am very happy (and also much easier to live with :-))
