A testimonial letter from Chun Ok Friedt
Feb. 23, 2003
My name is Chun Ok and I’m 48 years old and I was born and raised in Korea but I was not very familiar with Herbal Medicine or Acupuncture.
October 2002, I had abnormal period and I thought I was going through menopause so at first I was not worried and let the nature take care of it. But as time passes I was worried because by now I was bleeding for over 3 weeks and there seems to be no end to this bleeding and I was so weak from all this bleeding. So I called my doctor and made an appointment to see her. They did my blood test and I was very anemic and my female hormone showed I was not going through my menopause and my thyroid hormone was very low. My doctor sent me to a gynecologist and she examined me and said I had enlarged uterus and the only way to get the problem solved would be by hysterectomy but because of my thyroid hormone was so imbalanced she can’t do anything until that is corrected.
One of my sister suggested that I go see an herbal doctor. So on Saturday in December 14, 2002, my sister, my husband and I went to the herbal doctor that my sister used previously but because it was Saturday there were closed. So we got Korean business phone book and I looked up herbal doctors and I happened to see Ahn’s ad and I called him. He happened to be in his office that day and he agreed to see me. My purpose in seeing him was to stop the bleeding and later on have the hysterectomy but he said that God gave us all the parts in our body because they need them all and they should try our best to heal that sick parts not cut it out, because if they do surgically remove our body parts, other parts in our body suffers and they will never feel whole again.
That comment from him made a good sense to me because I’m a God fearing Christian and appreciate what God has created, especially our body. So I read a lot of materials on female body parts, especially the uterus, and I learned so many functions that the uterus performs for women’s well-being, not just producing estrogen and carry baby during the pregnancy but it does so much more. The more I read about it the more my uterus was precious to me. So I followed his suggestions and have been receiving acupunctures and herbal medicine since December 17, 2002 and I have been feel stronger and have more energy and I have been stopped bleeding about 2 weeks ago and I feel confident that I will keep my uterus and don’t have to have hysterectomy.
He has been very kind to me since I’ve met him and during the treatments, I have asked him many questions concerning my treatments and he took the time to answer the questions in easy terms so that I could understand about acupuncture and herbal medicine, why and how it works. I really appreciate the fact that these traditional medicines works with your body and it helps your body to heal itself by helping your own body’s healing power and it has no side effects. The only side effects for this kind of treatment are that by the time you are done with your treatments, your whole body feels good.
I thank him after every treatment because I feel better every time. I’m still getting treatments from him and my confidence in his healing abilities grows with each treatment that I receive.
I highly recommend everybody to Ahn’s Acupuncture and Herbal Clinic.
