Asthma

I originally started seeing Lihua Wang for allergy and asthma problems.  First, I would like to let you know that a
couple years ago I had FESS surgery on my sinuses.  Before the surgery and afterwards I had been on the regular
steroids and way too much prescription medication.  These problems had been with me for over 40 years.  
Originally, I hoped someday sinus-irrigating, colonics, and various natural remedies with or without medication
would help.  But I never had any real success.  My allergy doctor put me in a study for people with moderate to
severe asthma and I had twice weekly injections for a couple years.  Then I finally found an acupuncturist by the
name of Lihua Wang.  

I stopped all allergy and asthma prescription medications and injections while receiving acupuncture.  I was
amazed at the results in less than a month.  Today, I occasionally take some Chinese herbal supplements but not
regularly.  This is the first time since I can remember that I can really breath.  Yes, some odors and foods still
irritate me, but now I can smile and simply walk away or stop eating the item and I am fine.  

Several months after treatment the national clinic who paid me to be in the asthma survey called me.  They wanted
to know why missed the last appointments.  I informed them that since I started acupuncture the problem really
disappeared.  The person on the phone simply said they had heard other say the same thing about acupuncture
treatments.

For many years I have had difficulty recovering from common colds because of my asthma.  Each time I caught a cold, I
would have a cough that would persist sometimes as long as three months.  Twice this lead to pneumonia.  I have
been on lots of inhalers including albuterol, advir, pulmacort, asmanex, etc.  They made me feel miserable and were
very slow in helping me to get back to normal.  I decided to give acupuncture a try and it has completely resolved my
asthma.  This was totally unexpected to me.  I thought it would take a few visits, but I felt immediate relief after my very
first visit with Dr. Wang.  I tossed away my inhalers three days later when I realized I didn’t need them anymore and I’ve
not had to use them since.  I have gone for three more visits with Dr. Wang, and now I have not experienced any
asthma in four months.  I have caught two more colds this winter, but each resolved in about a week with no
complications from asthma.  I feel normal again and would recommend Dr. Wang to anyone who is suffering from
asthma and wants to get off the inhalers.

Acid Reflux & Ulcer

I had acid reflux for many years & it caused some peptic ulcer.  I took some medicines but the pain & burning
feeling in the stomach remained.  After I have had some treatments from Lihua Wang, now I am amazingly almost
symptom free!

After returning from Africa I developed a nervous/anxiety disorder that was believed to have come from a parasite
from grasses and possibly something in a lake in Malawi.  I lost 30-40 pounds, had continued panic attacks, could
not drive (due to dizziness), and lost hair.  I saw more doctors and had more tests than I can count and my case was
being followed by the Disease Control Clinic in Denver.  

I came to believe that I was dying.  Dr Wang was my last resort. . . . Nothing the other doctors tried helped.  Dr
Wang saved my life!  I saw her every other day for a treatment for over a year.  I'm happy to announce that w/ a lot
of hand work by Dr Wang I'm my old self and have a full and health life.

Bone Fracture

I had a fracture in my right ulna [a forearm bone] that had a plate screwed into the bone to hold it together. The plate
was surgically placed in early dec of 2009 and was to be healed by Jan 15, 2010. In April the bone still showed no sign
of healing so I decided to try acupuncture and herbal treatment. Lihua Wang L.A.C. was my choice as she has many
years of experience and has taught acupuncture. After I began treatment, my pain began to decrease, the throbbing
diminished and a miracle occurred! The bone is 85 to 90% healed and I am finally going back to work. I firmly believe
without Mrs Wang's treatments I would be preparing to undergo another surgery and lose more time at work to say
nothing of still being in pain. I owe her a great big thank you and will return for other health issues as I am now a
convert to acupuncture and herbal medication. Thank you Lihua Wang!!!

Bronchitis

I have counted on your great care for me and my family since 1996, since my son was 6 years old.  At that
time we both had a serious lung/virus condition and could barely breathe, eat or sleep at night.  We were
pretty scared at the time and thank god we haven't ever been sick since.  Some virus was going around at the
time and everyone else ended up in their medical doctor's office on antibiotics.  We are so grateful for your
aggressive herbal and acupuncture treatments 3-4 days a week for the both of us and that we were able to
stay off Western drugs.  Since this time, whenever me or my family are ill or out of sorts we can always count
on you to help us.  In addition, your loving care and follow-up makes us feel that you are more than our family
doctor but a good lifelong friend as well; some one we can always count on to keep us health and practicing
preventive medicine.

Cancer Support


In 1996 I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer which had to be surgically removed.  After removal of the cancer I
again sought help from Acupuncture and Herb Center.  The treatments of acupuncture and herbs had left me free
from cancer since 1996.

-- H.D.

In 2000 I had stage three colon cancer.  After having surgery, I was informed that the cancer had gotten into my
lymph modes.   I underwent treatment that included the removal of the tumor and six months of chemotherapy.  
After about 8 weeks of chemo, my white blood cell count dropped below 3, which meant I couldn't have further
treatments until the white blood cell count improved.  This happened twice before I discovered Dr. Wang.  Her
treatments involved both acupuncture and Chinese herbs.   After starting with her, I never missed a chemotherapy
treatment.  In fact my white blood cell count improved each week of chemo.   
I couldn't take the Antinausea medicine that is normally given during chemotherapy but thankfully the acupuncture
treatments were a big help. I owe my thanks to Dr. Wang for helping me through this difficult time.  I have now been
cancer free for seven year.

Crohn's Disease

Crohn's Disease has affected my life since 1991, when I was first diagnosed.  Prednisone, at the time
was the drug of choice.  Then on a to Mesalamine, then to enemas. . . .  The Prednisone worked almost
immediately, but it is really bad for your body.  The other meds worked, sometimes and then they stopped
working.  The worst part about Crohn's disease is the bathroom situation . . . . . ALWYAYS looking for the
restroom, because of the urgency to go, I had.  
Being concerned about the health of my body, I went in search of something new and perhaps natural.  
Then I found Lihua Wang's Acupuncture and Herb Center.  Lihua started me on a treatment of herbs that
she puts into a pad.  The pad is worn at night on my abdomen area while I sleep.  It was working within a
week!!!  I was stunned that something so "simple" could be so effective for me.  
Now I am very regular and have no cramping, bleeding or urgency.  Lihua Wang is very accommodating
and helpful to me.  Thank you.

Vertigo

I have had bouts of vertigo several times over the past 11 years.  Nothing could help. Dr Wang has
successfully treated me with acupuncture and herbs.  I quickly got well and highly recommend her.

-- Kathy C.

Beginning at the age of 6, I have had a long standing vertigo condition that until 6 years ago, could not be treated
effectively. My symptoms would range from mild dizziness to 3rd degree vertigo and bedridden. From 3 hours of
extreme vertigo, to years of on, and off vertigo in cycles of 3 days.

These sessions would come and go over the time, with no apparent reason. With the exception of a noticeable ringing
and damp slightly sick ear, there were no other clear connection to the vertigo.

My suspicion was that the vertigo was brought on after getting my ear wet, and not actually drying out, but there was no
immediate clear connection between when my ear got wet, and the bought of vertigo. This was a chronic condition of
great discomfort and disability for me.

6 years ago after having spells of vertigo on and of for 12 months, I made the decision to try yet another doctor. This
time it was Lihua, she gave me 3 acupuncture treatments and herbs, which to my great surprise, and relief,  effectively
cured the vertigo within a week! Now and then it has come back, but after a couple of acupuncture and herb treatments
it goes away as quickly, and stays away longer.

I can say happily now that I have been without this condition for more than 3 years!  Clearly this is nothing short of
miraculous, I have sought many doctors over the years, traditional and untraditional. Fortunately for me Lihua knows
how to treat my condition, would that I had known that sooner.

Urinary Tract Infection

I am writing to thank you so much for your excellent care with my recent illness, a urinary tract/kidney infection.
I feel your treatment and herbal remedies brought me back to balance, so my body could heal itself faster.  I
felt much better after your treatment and even better several days after taking the herbs.  Thank you very much.

-- John H.

. . . . I also went for treatment after I developed the symptoms of a bladder infection, but my M.D. found no
evidence of infection.  Dr Wang was able to treat the symptoms and the problem disappeared after only a few
treatments.  What a relief!

-- Sandy P

I came to Lihua Wang when I was so sick with prolonged menstrual bleeding. I was very debilitated from having a
period that had lasted over one month. I remember how her treatments and herbs were able to stop and bleeding and
return me to a monthly cycle. I regained my strength. I continue to benefit now from monthly visits for acupuncture for
menopause and I am so happy that I have not had to resort to estrogen replacement therapy. I hope more women who
begin menopause will try acupuncture to help them through this time of their lives. Thank you Dr Wang!

-- F. G.

Taking antibiotics for a bladder infection left me with the side effect of loss of energy and diarrhea.  The infection was
cured but the side effects were very miserable for a time.  

With this in mind, I went to Lihua Wang when confronted with an infection six months later.  The treatment of
acupuncture and herbs cured the bladder infection and I was free from side effects of loss of energy and diarrhea.  
This was a great relief to have treatment free from miserable side effects. Thank you
