I’ve had severe depression for over twenty years and been on all kinds of anti-depressants with many bad side effects. The last drug I was on called Effexor caused my blood pressure to go so high I had to go into the hospital. The doctor made me stop taking the Effexor.
I have tried to stop taking the medication many times, but could hardly function without it. It got really bad. I was depressed, very irritable, vomiting at work and wanted to be by myself. Many times, I wanted to commit suicide.
I tried to treat the depression with herbs like St. John’s Wort and Sam-e. I still wasn’t getting any better. I decided to try acupuncture for the depression. Dr. Lisa (Yuehui Li) Zhou got me in right away and within a couple of days I felt great. I felt happy for the first time in a very long time. All of my anxiety and panic attacks went away and I have been off all medications and herbs for over a month.
My mind is so clear and I feel like a teenager again. I have no depression and feel so good. Never thought acupuncture would work so well but it really does. I wish I had done this a long time ago. I had some very bad side effects from the medications and not one bad side effect from acupuncture. Also, I’ve had a lot of people tell me that I look great.
Thank you so much Dr. Lisa (Yuehui Li) Zhou. I know you really care about your patients and have done so much to help me.
