All that said, it is expensive ( probably 4K$ over the past year alone). But, I would not keep going and spending that kind of non-reimbursable cash if it was not helping. I especially felt positive change with respect to my vision problems.
sorry i have never explored acupunture.
take control of your own health.
pursue optimal self care, with or without a diagnosis.

I had been diagnosed 8 years before I started seeing him. In those eight years, I had gone from a very active, fully able-bodied life to being in a wheelchair full-time. I had perhaps 10% use of my right arm and 50% of my left. I could no longer take a step forward but could stand up and was able to move my feet backward a bit and could rotate in one direction. Thus, I was still managing my own transfers.
It may be coincidence, but since then I have not progressed any further. When the information about CCSVI came to my attention, I wondered if the effort that he pays to my circulation is responsible for holding me steady. Who knows?
However, I will continue to see him. When I started, I just wanted to keep my skeleton supple, as I had very little else left, and I thought it was important to protect my frame in case the opportunity to heal ever arose. The acupuncture was his idea - increasing circulation to a damaged area of the body is standard treatment in Chinese medicine.
So this is my experience - it has certainly done me no harm, and I believe that it may have helped stay the course. By the way, I had followed neurological advice and taken Rebif until they pulled me off it. I also did two sessions of chemo (mitoxantrone) to no avail. The neurologist also refused my request for LDN when everything else had failed, but I recently got a prescription from my GP. Needless to say, I found the chiropractor without assistance from the neurologist.

I had been suffering from this annoying symptom of chronic Blepharospasm / rapid involuntary eyelid twitching / eye blinking before ( one of the key symptoms of Tardive Dyskinesia ) a couple of years ago for about 2 years and having had tried and exhausted almost all the medical treatments from the formal western medications, they all just turned out to be totally futile and produced no results at all. And in the end, this particular simple needle-free acupuncture / acupressure cure / technique involving "He Gu" acupoint - Diagram: http://curezone.com/upload/Art/Animatio ... t_File.gif as instructed to me by my acupuncturist (as my skins are extremely sensitive to needle-piercings) just turned out to be immediately effective and then progressively got my chronic eyelid twitching / eye blinking disorders better and better from one day to another until eventually a few months later, I just got 100 % totally cured and healed once and for all without getting any relapse of such disorder at all for more than 7 years till now. And maybe the weblinks below elaborating on the related details will turn out to be relevant and useful to the others having the like-problems.

Well then & anyway, what is the main, primary & undisputed purpose of giving and providing health cares to the ones needing them in the first place ? To save lives or solely for money-making alone ? By the way, anyone would certainly agree that the very fundamental and basic concepts of giving health cares are always indispensably inseparable, inalienable, and in tandem with all the inherently first & foremost humane principles of humanities ,humanitarianism and the very unquestionably primary priority of saving lives.
Next, in conjunction with the points made above, kindly consider the following quotations :
"I think Actually these persons distributed nearly the identical sore know-how as me from such debilitating sickness and for your data, there were numerous of them who were not so well-to-do, and therefore they could not pay for such costly health accounts of glimpsing the health experts or to get Botox injections / surgical remedy to deal with their non-stop eyelid-twitching problems. Therefore, when I suggested such an acupuncture method to them, I did it out of benevolent humanity, understanding and compassion, and express gratitude God that it worked on each and every individual of them."

Well, in respect of the bold characters of the remark highlighted above, naturally and rationally all the kind and benevolent persons would earnestly hope that the doctors of the modern medical world today will eventually come to realize one day that practicing medicine is simply, mainly and definitely not about profiteering and money-making alone. Anyway, as human beings ourselves, the principles of humanitarian concepts, humanity, conscience etc, well, they simply should not be ignored or deliberately compromised for the sake of money-making especially when it comes to the issue of medical conscience of the doctors practicing medicines of which its key, primary & undisputed purpose is mostly about saving human lives rather than making money to enrich themselves.

i have not had treatment in several years, but am still doing better than i was when i first sought that help.
Getting rid of that back pain was nothing short of a miracle especially since my only other short relief came from Gabapentin and Lyrica which both left me zombie-like with almost no balance and saw me gain 20 pounds.
