I think it’s nice that prospective patients are open, curious and investigative when considering acupuncture, and credit should be given for considering it as a viable, potential option.
If you feel that your specific health condition requires or demands a deeper measure of expertise (or if that is your initial preference), feel free to continue reading below.
* Keen Diagnostic Skill
It was interesting to see Dr. Li perform medical face reading (fading diagnostic method), a traditional, authentic component of Chinese medicine (obvious ones being pulse and tongue diagnosis). Though I came in highly concerned about an abnormal, continuous right eye twitch, she made some inquisitive, passing comments about my acne scars, and the veins on my temples (didn’t notice myself) which she said indicated a history of headaches. Though I don’t know the clinical significance or relevancy of these observations, the last part was true.

Kaiser, managed it well HA1C 6.4 but the neuropathy, numbness, water retention, lymphedema just kept on coming. Diuretics were causing kidney damage and I had allergic reactions to pain medication. My feet were so swollen sometimes I could only wear post op sandals and couldn’t get into my shoes which are 5EEEEE width! My neurologist referred me for acupuncture for pain and I had the good fortune of meeting Dr. Hongyan Li. I’ve had 7 treatments with her, I am able to deal with the pain and actually sleep 6 to 8 hours a night! To my surprise my feet and ankles are back to almost normal size and my shoes fit! She has improved my circulation and I am able to walk normal distances again! She has prescribed 3 herbal formulas that
I love Dr. Li. She helped me have a baby at 41. I had two miscarriages before trying acupuncture. Although I did not hold much hope of it working, after a two months of sessions and taking the pills she recommended I became pregnant and gave birth to a beautiful little girl in January. I am hoping to get lucky again and give her a little sister. If you are struggling with fertility, I highly recommend Dr, Li!

6 years ago I injured my right shoulder and pulled out a rib on my right side. I was unable to fix the problem properly so the injury spread up my neck and started causing me migraines that were awful. After finally listening to my intuition to see an acupuncturist I searched for the most qualified acupuncturist in my area and that’s when I found Dr. Li. At this point I was having chronic headaches (every day without brake) and it was making me miserable. After my first appointment my headaches stopped! Plus, Dr. Li relieve the pressure and pain I was having caused by my herniated disc in my L4. Due to my herniated disc I had trouble lifting almost any amount of weight and now I nanny an 8 year old girl who Jumps on my back for rides, i go hiking with once a week, play... Read more »
Dr Hongyan Li is nothing short of a miracle worker and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking to improve their health. Unlike many traditional physicians, Dr Li sincerely listened to my concerns with professional compassion and explained what I could expect from the treatments.
Although I scheduled my initial appt because I wanted to lose weight and get rid of the tinnitus in my left ear, upon examination, Dr Li pointed out that the primary focus had to be to lower my severely high blood pressure. In seeiing how high my blood pressure was, I had to admit that getting my BP controlled had to come first. Since my father died of his first stroke, I knew that my hypertension had to be addressed.
I was a little nervous about pain from the needles, causing my pressure to be elevated, but Dr Li had the gentlest touch... Read more »
During the summer solstice your yang energy reaches its peak. It is important to harness the peak of this yang energy, because as summer shifts into fall yang energy will decline. This great abundance of yang energy will translate throughout your body because during this season you are active and growing.
According to five element theory, during the summer the organ that receives extra energy is the heart. When the seasons change so do the organs we should focus on in the body. You should focus on the heart during summer. Feed the heart heart-nourishing foods and make sure to remain active so the heart receives positive energy. continue reading
While the flu is actually not a season, we have become programmed to think of it as the months of November through March. On average, the flu hospitalizes thousands every year, especially the young and elderly. There are also a number of deaths related to the flu, mostly due to people already having compromised immune systems.
The flu, also known as influenza, is a highly contagious respiratory infection that is caused by a number of viruses. To date, there are approximately 26 to 30 different known strains of the flu virus. This is one of the reasons the flu vaccine has only mild efficacy. The flu vaccine itself, typically only covers five to seven strains of the flu. Symptoms of the flu include fever, coughing, a sore throat, fatigue, muscle aches, pains, runny nose and watery eyes. continue reading
Oriental medicine (OM) nutrition combines ancient wisdom with modern science. OM nutrition is a holistic approach, which aims to balance all five flavors within most meals with one or two flavors being emphasized for therapeutic purposes. OM nutrition for a hypertension emphasizes bitter flavors, sour flavors and energetically-cooling foods.
OM theory states the bitter flavor benefits the heart in moderation but an excess is harmful as it has a drying effect; for example, coffee is bitter. In moderation coffee acts as vasodilator increasing circulation but in excess it can raise blood pressure and has a diuretic effect. Modern scientific research has discovered while the human genome has 25 bitter taste receptors 12 of these are expressed in the human heart. continue reading
As the school year kicks back into gear so should the healthy habits that you and your children have before practiced. Notice how I said “practiced,” because we all know during the summer-vacation months we tend to indulge a little. Maybe you have had one too many backyard barbecues, or three too many trips to the favorite ice cream shop down the street. Whatever your summer vice may be don’t worry about it, you can regain those healthy habits from before and introduce them into your children’s lives! continue reading
