“At this time I feel wonderful — vital, strong, healthy, and full of energy.”
For a number of years I have endured multiple chronic physical conditions, many of which were caused or exacerbated by stress. These included an anxiety disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue and thoracic outlet syndrome. Last summer my family and I moved from the east coast to San Diego. While it was a planned move, one to which we looked forward to, it clearly was a stressful one. Many of my chronic conditions worsened — particularly the thoracic outlet syndrome, anxiety and fatigue. Testing and meetings with numerous specialists resulted in a diagnosis of major surgery, which I chose not to pursue.
I noticed an ad for the Pearl Center of Natural Medicine, which had just open in La Jolla, and decided to consult its founder Dr. Timothy Yeh. I presented him with a list of my symptoms and the recommendations from my former doctors. He listened intently and then explained that natural medicine is used to treat the whole body, not just the part that exhibits the symptom. Also, I needed to cooperate and work in partnership with Dr. Yeh following his direction to affect positive results. I liked the idea of working together for my benefit! Through the use of acupuncture, herbs, food medicine, and life style changes, my body would most likely respond by healing itself, suggested Dr. Yeh. And that is what happened. It did not happen over night. In fact, Dr. Yeh told me I would begin to feel better within three months, but not completely well until approximately six months.
Knowing that Dr. Yeh had been trained in both Western and Eastern medicine with over 30 years experience, I felt secure in believing that if he said he could help me, then he would. However, I was willing to make all the changes in diet, do all that he suggested and commit to the full treatment was the use of establishing a base line, which indicated where deficiencies and excesses of energy were present throughout my body. At the conclusion of the first three months, this testing was repeated, so I could actually see where progress had taken place, and where areas of weakness still occurred. This served as encouragement and evidence that success was possible.
My treatment took place over the course of my first winter in San Diego. Although many around me had the flu and colds, I remained completely healthy. At this time I feel wonderful — vital, strong, healthy, and full of energy. I continue to eat well, exercise, and get the needed rest. I plan on having a seasonal check-up to make sure I remain this way.
I appreciate all the skill, caring, and good work Dr. Yeh and his staff have provided me. I’m so thankful I took the chance to explore and try the natural approach to my health problems, instead of resorting to surgery and medication. I am happy to recommend Dr. Yeh and his staff to others who are experiencing any health problems or want to increase their state of wellness.
Very truly yours,
San Diego, CA
