Success Lowering Cholesterol
I came to SOPHIA primarily to help lowering my cholesterol, which was recently diagnosed as high. I had started a statin per my doctor’s instructions. After reading about the statins drug side effects, I stopped the statin after three weeks. I started looking for an alternative, holistic medicine route and came to SOPHIA. My doctor is aware that I stopped the statin and I’m working on an alternative method. In three months, the combination of acupuncture treatments, diet changes, and taking supplements, my cholesterol has dropped 66 points and I have lost 10 lbs. Needless to say, this is very encouraging. Additionally, I had a secondary issue of negative side effects from taking an anti-anxiety prescription. While under the doctor’s care for the weaning process and then finally stopping, I experienced some unwanted withdrawal symptoms. The acupuncture has lessened these symptoms significantly over the past three months.
