Natural Medicine Changing the way we can approach our health

I had to post this testimonial because it reflects in what is taking control of your health versus leaving it out in the hands of people.

Art of Natural Healing Testimonial

After several years of dealing with fatigue, insomnia, memory loss, muscle cramps, hypo-glycemia, dry skin, hair loss, blurry vision, weight gain and more, I made an appointment with Alejandro Fernandez. Having had a hysterectomy when I was forty-years-old; and my complete thyroid radiated when I was sixty-years-old for Graves Disease, I was making a career out of visiting endocrinologists who kept prescribing estrogen and synthroid to compensate for my body’s inability to produce these needed hormones.

My doses for both medications kept going up, but my symptoms kept increasing and I was feeling worse. I came to Alejandro due to help me when my other physicians could not. Without a thyroid plus being post-menopausal and not producing needed hormones, I was becoming overwhelmed with physical, emotional and psychological symptoms.

Used to having “high energy” pretty much all of my life, I was becoming depressed dealing with my growing number of symptoms. Just getting out of bed in the morning was a challenge. I decided I had enough, and my daughter recommended I make an appointment with Alejandro Fernandez, for whom she has the highest regard.

The first thing Alejandro did was order saliva tests which he believes are more accurate than blood tests to determine hormone levels. None of my endocrinologists ever had ordered such a test for me, and when the results came in, I was clearly in a state of severe imbalance.

My journey to healing began when Alejandro sat down with me and very carefully explained my test results and why I was having my symptoms. He was emphatic he would not treat the symptoms, but instead the cause of my symptoms. That alone was sufficient to inspire my commitment to acupuncture treatment, taking prescribed supplements and making dietary changes.

Since I live out of state, Alejandro had me return to Chicago a month later and gave me a series of 10 acupuncture treatments. I was fortunate to stay with my daughter and saw him daily for acupuncture. I also began my daily regime with my prescribed supplements. Within 4 days, I was feeling a change for the better.

During my treatment, I had to fly out of town and when my plane was delayed returning to Chicago I missed an appointment. “No problem,” said Alejandro, “we will schedule you for two acupuncture treatments in one day.” To make that happen, Alejandro came in early on this particular day, and he also came in on two of his days off, to make sure I was able to complete my series of acupuncture treatments.

By the end of the 10th day, I had at least four good nights of sleep, my energy was beginning to return and I truly believed, that despite my age of 70 years old, I would continue to heal sufficiently to enjoy a daily “state of well-being.”

It is now six-weeks later and I greet each new day with enthusiasm. I feel stronger, physically, psychologically, and emotionally. My symptoms are diminishing, as I continue acupuncture treatments in my hometown with a practitioner who is coordinating my treatments by phone with Alejandro.

Alejandro is an expert in his field. In fact, I would say he is renowned in the realm of acupuncture and natural healing. But it is not just his knowledge and skills that make him an outstanding practitioner, it is his compassion, his enthusiasm, his ability to inspire and his deep commitment to his patient’s well-being. How could I not make the same commitment to myself that he was making to me?

I will forever be grateful to Alejandro for the conviction, passion, integrity and humility with which he practices acupuncture and natural healing. I will see him again this summer for a week, and actually look forward to being in his presence, so that we can smile at my upcoming test results, which I already know will be significantly improved!

With heartfelt gratitude,
