Weight – Underweight Success Stories

It’s hard to believe that in six months you took a sick, underweight, nervous, stressed individual and assisted in 180 degrees shift. In February, I was barely 148 lbs., I was experiencing light headedness & palpitations. I was a sick puppy. Due to your assistance and guidance, I was able to overcome my ailments, gain 10 pounds, and pass my 2nd degree black belt test (which consisted of over three and one half straight hours of conditions).
You are the best.

My main complaint when I came to Shasta was a weak nervous system. My pulse was surging at about 100 beats a minute. I was also having insomnia, poor digestion, congestion in the solar plexus as well as the throat, low energy, coldness, gingivitis, colitis pain, PMS, and was underweight.
One of the first steps in my healing was the recommendation of changing my diet. This has had a big impact on my health, and helped me gain weight, increase my energy, and calm my nervous system in a short period of time.
After only a few treatments my constant nagging colitis pain, and gingivitis were gone and I was amazed how in T.C.M. these two symptoms are related.
After the 24th week of treatments I feel my improvement is stable, my pulse rate is a calm 65 to 70 beats a minute, and I have the tools for my daily life to keep up my good health.

“It was my first pregnancy and I had severe nausea. I threw up all the time. My doctors were worried because instead of gaining weight I had lost 15 pounds. I came to Shasta for acupuncture once a week throughout my entire pregnancy because it really helped with my nausea. I consequently gained all my weight back, and maintained normal pregnancy weight. I had a beautiful healthy little girl! Shasta was wonderful. The acupuncture really worked. It was worth it. It didn’t hurt. It was the best thing that probably ever happened to me”

Fibrocystic breasts run in my family, and I’ve had it for ten years. It used to be that the lumps would come and go, but about eight years ago three distinct lumps stayed. Conventional medicine says they’re all benign and that there was no treatment for them except hormones or steroids. I didn’t want to do any of them.
So I came to Shasta. After about a year of weekly treatment which included acupuncture, cups and herbs, the PMS, breast swelling and some of the lumps have decreased to the point where my doctor couldn’t find one of the lumps. In addition, my hypoglycemia has balanced, I’m sleeping better, and I’ve gained 10 pounds. I have been underweight all of my life and I’ve never been able to gain any weight.
The last thing is I’m much calmer, and not as anxious or nervous.

I acquired major tendon damage in my forearms from taking the Antibiotic “Cipro” that left me unable to pursue my career as a Beach Volleyball player for several months. So when my Acupuncturist Shasta Tierra told me she could help, I jumped at the offer. Through Shasta’s skilled Acupuncture and care, my tendons…
