A 17-year-old boy having a family history of ulcerative colitis, has recently had flare ups with blood and pus in the stool.  His mother also has ulcerative colitis.  He has tried a lot of Western and alternative treatments without any success in reducing the frequency of flare-ups.  He has tried Chinese Herbal Extract Powder and has not seen any improvement in his condition.  After coming to HolliBalance Well-Being Center and having one acupuncture treatment, the special points for ulcerative colitis reduced the amount of blood and pus in the stool.  After two acupuncture treatments, he did not see any trace of blood or pus in the stool.
