I had my 6th acupuncture treatment on this past Monday, and my 7th yesterday. Monday's session treated mucus (again), hormones, and parietal lobe. Wednesday's session treated mucus (yes, a third time), and fungus. (Very glamorous, this last session.)
On Monday I told him that I had been having bad headaches along the sides of my head for the past week; he nodded and said, "temple headache". So he treated "parietal lobe" at that session - which means he gave me a liquid-filled vial labeled "parietal lobe", and added three extra needles: one about halfway up on the outside of each calf, and one smack in the middle of my eyebrows. Later I had to wonder exactly what was in that liquid-filled vial - if they give you a little bit of the allergen to increase immunity, was I holding 'Essence of Parietal Lobe', with little bits of brain floating around in it? And whose parietal lobe would it be? I hope they chose someone really smart.
I still had an awful headache for the rest of Monday following the treatment, but it eased up on Tuesday, and was only mildly annoying yesterday. Certainly much more manageable than it was. I have no idea if the onset of the headache is related to the acupuncture treatments - the doctor didn't indicate one way or the other.
When I started treatments. I anticipated about three treatments, four at the outside. At seven treatments now, with little to show for it, I keep feeling like I'm just throwing money away, with no guarantee that there's going to be any vast improvement, and no indication of how much longer it could take. So yesterday morning I told him this would be the last treatment, at least for a while. He tested me for everything he has treated: vitamin C, grass mix, tree mix, mold, dust, (rag)weed, flower mix, hormones, histamine, parietal lobe, and mucus (eeeueew!) I passed everything but mucus. He also tested me for fungus, which he hadn't tested before. When I didn't "pass", he said, "Ah! Fungus! That can take several treatments to get rid of." And I thought, why didn't he test that earlier on, then?! My husband's skepticism crept in, and had me thinking that I just told this guy I was going to stop treatments, and he "discovers" another allergen that still needs additional treatment. How convenient. (and fishy).
