I suffer from an autoimmune disease with a genetic link. It causes debilitating pain and stiffness in my back. I tried all kinds of medications from anti-inflammatory drugs to immunosuppressants, and each works for some time and stop working. Injection of toxic liver medication every two weeks frightens me. I have received acupuncture treatment and customized dietary modification at the Yang Institute. I am now free of the symptoms with minimum need for medication, which I did not believe was possible".

I came to Yang Institute seeking treatment at the time I was running out of options with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. I was hoping to relieve my pain in the chest and scar tissue from the multiple surgeries and radiation therapy. I received acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, nutritional therapies. I also adopted a positive attitude and active lifestyle. Eight years later, I am alive, energetic, and pain-free. I am a true believer in integrative medicine. "


I have had chronic Lyme disease since age 5. I suffer from chronic pain and the horrible neurological, psychological, and physical reactions from antibiotics. Acupuncture has given me a way of life during my medical treatment that I would not have otherwise had. I am extremely grateful for it. I have been receiving acupuncture twice a week for six weeks. Sometimes it hurt, but it was always a good hurt. For me, each acupuncture point is like throwing a stone in a pond, and it lets me re-calibrate the level of water- that is my life. Mentally I can process things that I normally would not be able to. My level of understanding of the world, in general, has improved. Physically I can do things that I was not able to do. It offered me lots of benefits."
