Beverly is from Dallas and as a teenager was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis after losing hair, gaining weight, and experiencing extreme fatigue. While attending St. Edward’s University she was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Specialists told her it was a condition she would need to manage for life. Her college years were defined by gastroenterologists, nutritionists, allergists, new drugs, supplements, multiple hospital visits, and extreme diets. Unfortunately, it was a continual search of help with no alleviation of symptoms.
Post graduation, a doctor referred Beverly to an acupuncturist, which offered some relief. However, she was still limited due to her symptoms. It was not until she discovered Five Element Acupuncture that she really felt like herself again. After seven long years of searching, she saw real progress. She could eat foods that were once off limits and live a care free life. A hostage no more to her symptoms, she knew she had to continue her education to learn Five Element Acupuncture.
How is Five Element Acupuncture different?
Classical Five Element Acupuncture is set apart from other systems of acupuncture by its core premise of diagnosing and treating a patient’s fundamental imbalance, rather than symptoms.
Five Element Acupuncture believes that one’s emotional state and stress level is especially important to understand and treat in order to ensure health. While it treats all conditions with exceptional success, it uniquely treats anxiety, depression, stress, and insomnia.
Five Element has changed my life and I sincerely hope to help as many people as I can; please feel free to reach out with questions. I am ecstatic to be part of a group like this.
