I was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2009. My lifelong goal is to continue what I enjoy best; living a healthy, active lifestyle. Clinically, from a medical perspective my prognosis is great, yet I continued to struggle with chronic pain. My symptoms of fatigue and numbness have improved significantly since seeking treatment from Elie last Summer. I’ve incorporated dietary changes by following the Paleo diet, Chinese medicine, and weekly acupuncture. Diet & herbal supplements are energy driven, while acupuncture has gradually decreased chronic pain. Most of my symptoms have completely resolved. I feel more and more energized on a daily basis, which is also very important for my job as a RN. It is quite an accomplishment, a struggle I thought I was just going to have to cope with. I want to thank Elie for helping me find a pathway that continues to be successful. Very inspiring and such a positive outlook for my future!
My baby is born and the acupuncture was definitely the catalyst. It took about 24 hours to start active labor (after the labor-inducing acupuncture treatment), but I felt the momentum right when I left the appointment. You were amazing and really helped put me in a beautiful place.
I read the Paleo Solution and Primal Blueprint, but hearing Elie’s presentation and having the 30 day challenge and daily email support helped me truly internalize the information and build it into my daily routine.
You have taught me how to be more in touch with my spiritual self and how important it is to nurture “Laura”. I have always felt encouraged by you to be my true self and you are an incredible role model of that.
Thank you so much for being a source of light during a very dark moment in my life. Your service and care is deeply appreciated!
We’ve been blessed by your healing hands. Thank you for all the wonderful afternoons of stress relief. You have been an inspiration.
Following a breast cancer diagnosis in 2011, I started chemotherapy treatments at a local “state of the art” cancer research facility. Early into my treatment I recognized that supportive health care is not a part of traditional cancer treatment. With my body under assault from chemo, I knew I had to do something to balance the harsh effects. I began acupuncture therapy with Elie on a regular basis. After acupuncture treatments I consistently noticed a dramatic decrease in muscle pain, nausea, fatigue, and the neurotoxicity of chemo. Elie’s clinical expertise as well as her caring and supportive ways were incredibly helpful to me.
Elie really knows how to bring light into my life.
I was diagnosed with a mild depression that I just couldn’t seem to shake. My therapist recommended that I take anti-depressants (SSRI’s) but I knew that needed to be a last resort for me. When I phoned Elie, she said that acupuncture can help alleviate depression so I made the appointment. The day after my first treatment I already could feel the gloom start to lift and I had a sense of contentment that I hadn’t had in a long time. I’ve now had several appointments and I’m so pleased to report that I am no longer depressed and that my thoughts aren’t getting stuck in that dark spiral anymore.
Elie’s knowledge and intuition saved my life. She served as my healer before and after surgery, guided my anti-cancer pH diet and helped me get healthy again.
