Bladder Prolapse

The issue of bladder prolapse is a bit private to discuss but, I hope this anonymous testimonial will give help to another who is suffering same discomfort and is looking for hope though acupuncture.  

 I came to Abundance Acupuncture in 2008 because I was suffering from bladder prolapse due to a recent pregnancy and delivery.  The prolapsed bladder was at its worst for five months and it caused an uncomfortable feeling of often needing to run to the bathroom when actually there was no need at all.  This prohibited my much loved walks, I had to restrict my water intake unless I was directly near a rest area, and it caused me worries about the future of my health. Being only 32, this type of problem shouldn’t be an issue for me.  So, I thought, “what will it be like at 50?”        

I was looking at surgery within the next 20 years, and was told to hold out until I was sure that I would not have more children, but that was too long for me to wait for relief.  I began to feel some improvements in my condition after two weeks of treatments at Abundance Acupuncture.  At this point in time my condition feels 90% better. Now, I only feel the symptoms on random days, spaced out weeks apart, and I am able to walk and go long distances before needing to stop for a bathroom break. I no longer feel the regular pressure of a low and full bladder.  I have also had significant improvement in other minor health issues like my weak and achy knees, droopy heavy eye lids, my weak stomach, and faulty digestive system.  All of these problems have been 80 to 90% resolved.

 During the treatments I felt calm and relaxed, while inside my body I could feel the sensations of the movement of fluids, especially in my abdomen. The clinic is well organized and the staff is attentive and proactive in the healing process.  I would recommend acupuncture to all those people who have exhausted their time and money with traditional physicians and “specialists” with little or no results.

Urinary Pain & Interstitial Cystitis

The issue of urinary pain is a rather private issue, but I hope that this testimonial will help others find relief if they experience discomfort or pain similar to what I have endured.  

My name is Sandy M. I came to Abundance Acupuncture in 2010 because I was suffering from painful urination which was diagnosed as interstitial cystitis.  I had intense, “teeth gnashing” pain before, during, and after urination, frequent and urgent urges to urinate with incomplete emptying of my bladder, and woke up two or three times every night to urinate.  When this problem began in 1992 it bothered me off and on, then five years ago, it became a constant and continuous annoyance.  Although urination is a simple and necessary body function this problem made it difficult to go very far between bathrooms or have intercourse.  It consumed my attention, interrupted my sleep, and left me feeling irritable, depressed, and hopeless. 

I tried medications such as Flomax and Klonopin, pulse galvanic stimulation, and even had interstim implant surgery without significant improvements.  I began to feel some improvements in my condition after the first treatment at Abundance Acupuncture.  At this point in time my condition feels 50% better.  The frequency of urinary urgency has been reduced, there is significantly less pain, and I am sleeping much better.
