A classical Chinese medical text states that all health and healing begins with a treatment of the center, meaning the digestive organs. The proper functioning of the stomach, spleen and liver are essential for overall health. Chinese medicine offers appropriate approaches to conditions such as acid reflux, dysbiosis, chronic constipation or diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome. Acupuncture, herbal medicine, food and lifestyle guidance harmonize these systems.
My experience with Crocus Hill, Susan Gillette, in particular has always led to a positive outcome for me – neck, back, hip, knee pain alleviated in a relatively short time. I have a diagnosis of collagenous colitis that periodically erupts into full-scale diarrhea that does not respond to Immodium and Kaopectate. After two months of this, I consulted with Susan, and began acupuncture treatment and Chinese herbs. I quickly noticed a quieting of the gut and miraculously, after a few treatments even the diarrhea was history. Just in case there is another event of this nightmare, I will immediately schedule to see Susan, and not waste time elsewhere.
