Tinnitus (Ear Ringing)
A 40 year-old female with a family history of declining hearing, has been noticing her own auditory decadence in the past 5 years, and she has experienced high-pitched ringing in both ears within the past two years. She also has a family history of high cholesterol. Sports injuries from her teenage years have induced present-day arthritis in both knees and pain in the lower back. During the first acupuncture treatment, the ringing in her right ear disappeared and the volume and pitch in her left ear were significantly muted. Following this treatment, she finally had a quiet moment, and her husband said this had been the best news he had heard in over two years. Her knee pain also greatly reduced after the first acupuncture treatment.
Ear Ringing and Acid Reflux
A 55 year old woman came into the center complaining of ringing in her ears that she had incurred from a snorkeling trip in Hawaii. She had been dealing with it for the past six months and her primary care physician could not discern any problem. She described the ringing as a high pitched buzzing sound that drove her crazy, especially in quiet areas. This ringing was also the cause of her daily headaches. During the initial treatment with Dr. Song, the ringing was significantly reduced and her headaches were completely gone. After the 2nd treatment, the ringing was reduced to almost nothing and by the 3rd treatment the ringing was completely gone!
One year and a half later, she returned but with a different problem, acid reflux. For the past four months, her symptoms included stomach discomfort, sleep disruption due to the stomach upset, and headaches. She started taking Prilosec a month after the acid reflux began. The drug made her feel sick, attributing to poor appetite, burping, and a discomforted digestive tract. After her first acupuncture treatment at HolliBalance Well-being Center, she felt for the first time in four months that her digestive system was back to normal; and following a second treatment, the acid reflux was completely gone! It has not recurred since September 2007!
