Macular Degeneration and Glaucoma | Pinpoint Acupuncture Clinic

From Diane D., St. Helens

“It’s a miracle!”

Because my family has a long history of eye problems such as macular degeneration and glaucoma, I became very interested when I heard that acupuncture was being used for treatment of several eye-disorders. Better yet, Brad Whisnant, Dr. of Acupuncture at the Pinpoint Clinic in St. Helens, had invited two Norwegian acupuncturists (Erik & Ole) to come to his St. Helens Clinic for a week. I signed up immediately with the hope that this preventative treatment might save me from blindness in my old age.

The miracle here occurs in that while they listened to my story, both men observed some fairly severe and uncomfortable side-effects from allergies including dizziness, teary eyes, congestion and sneezing. They indicated acupuncture could help. The miracle side of the story comes in that not only am I seeing better, my allergy symptoms have almost disappeared!

The last few years I’ve become more and more aware of the benefits of alternative medicine, including acupuncture, good nutrition and regular exercise. It’s evident that the old Chinese (Eastern medicine) providers could teach our Western health caregivers some good lessons and eliminate some of the expensive and damaging drugs prescribed to millions of us fanned by the greed of money-hungry drug companies.
