Acne Rosacea/Strep Infection
By Chantal Farabee
My next experience was when I came to
the United States. My acupuncturist is Joy Tso-Huo Smedley based in Everett,
Washington State. I had for some time had a bad case of Acne Rosacea, my
opinion is that this was somehow related to the Norplants that I had had.
Anyway, I became extremely depressed after having seen the dermatologist and
been given Metro-gel and being told that it was hereditary in British people,
seemed strange at the time, as my mother is German and my father is from
Mauritius. So consequently I called Joy up and we started a programme which I
believe took about 7 weeks. During this period I began to see my skin appear
healthier. I no longer have to hide behind tons of makeup and can now once
again face the world.
One last thing I wish to add is that I was struck down
with a bad case of Strep, in less than 3 days I was well, no antibiotics for 10
days, no Thrush, Acupuncture was once again my savior. I can only say that all
my experiences have been positive ones and I for one would like to see more use
being made of alternative forms of healing work in conjunction with western
medicine. Imagine the power that can have. It is a shame that there are still
far too many "closed" minded folk who perhaps are afraid of stepping outside of
what my seem a normal boundary.
