Emily B. - skin problem:

My name is Emily. I want to relate how Dr. Helen helped me through a health crisis. For 8 years, I had been suffering from "pruritus ani" which is another name for anal itching. Although many jokes are made about it, this condition is both embarrassing and painful. It follows an itch-and-scratch cycle and most Western doctors treat it with steroid creams. I did not want to use steroids so I tried various natural healing methods. I saw 2 naturopaths over a period of 4 years, an acupuncturist for 2 years, a nutritionist for 3 years, a chiropractor for another 2 years and several Western doctors. I changed my diet and eliminated many of my favorite foods. I spent thousands of dollars in creams, ointments, vitamins and supplements and herbal remedies and tinctures all to no avail.

One day, a friend suggested that I see this Chinese doctor in the Bloor St. West area. As a last resort, I decided to consult Dr. Helen. Within 2 treatments, she had healed this condition which had caused me untold torment for 8 years. As an added bonus, she also cured another skin problem called "swimmers ear". Every time my ears came in contact with water, they would itch. For the last 30 years of my life, I had learned to live with it as no one knew how to solve this problem. The only way to curb the itch was with a cortisone-based cream which I hated to do. Dr. Helen cured me in two treatments with a specially formulated natural cream. No more itching! I am eternally grateful to this wonderful, kind and very professional Doctor.


Amy C. - migraine, neck and lower back problem:

Dr. Helen is not the first acupuncturist I have been to but she is definitely the best. I was suffering intensely with migraine, neck and lower back pain for 23 years.

When a friend recommends Dr. Helen I decided to try TCM again. I went to see her and after 3 sessionís treatments, migraine disappeared, neck and back problem were reduced from acute pain to freedom and bliss. I really appreciate when I saw her every time that I can learn some way for maintain or improve of health such as how change dietary, pressure some points, massage my head and specific exercise for neck and back. Itís easy to do and has good results, for sure, my life is totally different than before. I and my family are very grateful to Dr. Helen for her professionalism, skill, understanding, and consciousness.
