From the moment I met Dr. El he has been helping me heal. I came to him with physical pain (a tooth ache from bad dental surgery, lower back pain from a previous car accident and foot pain diagnosed as plantar fasciitis). Not only has my physical pain been addressed but Dr. El has also helped me deal with emotional and childhood trauma, self acceptance as well as spiritual growth. Dr. El's service is absolutely phenomenal! My visits to him have been absolutely life changing and I highly recommend him to all I know.

8 Reasons to choose Natural Medicine

It will make you more grateful.

The driving idea behind how Dr. Amsu El administers acupuncture is that he teaches his patients that they already have possession of everything they need to be well. And that Acupuncture does not add or subtract anything. Rather, it prompts the body to do what it already knows how to do. He reminds you that you have the power to heal yourself by first making a commitment to take care of your health while also being conscious to avoid anything that offers you the illusion of health from adverse side effects. That’s something to be thankful for.

It will lower your stress levels.

Acupuncture is well known for its ability to lower stress. Let Dr. Amsu El help take the edge off  your stress levels by removing you from the perpetual state of sympathetic dominance in which so many of us find ourselves. Dr. El can stabilize your nervous system with acupuncture and help you feel less affected by and better equipped to manage the stressful aspects of daily life.

It will strengthen your immune system.

Acupuncture strengthens natural resistance to disease. Forget endorphins. Forget improved blood circulation. Forget placebo. This is how acupuncture works, by bolstering your immunity and equipping you to fight off pathogens. Dr. El’s Acupuncture treatments strengthens the immune system so that you can avoid illness rather than dealing with it after it happens.

It will make you look younger and improve your skin.

Acupuncture strengthens your five most essential organ systems—Kidney, Spleen, Liver, Lung, and Heart—so that you are systemically healthier. This can not only make you feel younger, by improving your energy levels, but it can actually prevent physical signs of aging. For details on how acupuncture helps you look younger, go here. If your battle against aging has mainly to do with your skin, you may have considered cosmetic acupuncture. Dr. El is highly experienced with Cosmetic Acupuncture, or facial rejuvenation acupuncture, and it gets a lot of press-celebrities swear by it. Dr. El has quite a few patients who really love it. Indeed, natural alternatives to Botox and prescription acne medications are in high demand, and acupuncture is emerging as a leading solution.

It will make you more self-aware.

Dr. El uses Acupuncture in a way that looks at the root causes of imbalances that affect the whole system. This means that when one thing is out of harmony, it can affect you in multiple ways. By thinking of yourself as a complex, interconnected being, it becomes easier to understand why you might be feeling unwell. Acupuncture broadens your awareness of the things that can potentially influence your physical and emotional health.

It will decrease your pain.

When people think about acupuncture and what it can help, pain usually is the first thing that comes to their mind. However, Dr. Els ability to use Acupuncture to reduce pain goes far beyond the physical benefits such as improved blood flow and the release of pain-relieving endorphins and serotonin. There is a significant emotional component to pain as well, especially pain that has become chronic. Dr. El Treats pain effectively-that is, treating it in a way that addresses the root causes-requires approaching it holistically. Acupuncture excels at this.

It will boost your energy.

Dr. El has been called “a magician” for some of the results patients have experienced in his office. Although it’s common to find yourself in “Acu land”- a somewhat dazed, blissfully relaxed state—during and immediately following your acupuncture treatment, the after effect is usually increased energy. Many people report having more energy in the hours, days and even weeks after an acupuncture treatment. You may notice that you’re avoiding that post-lunch coma, feeling more motivated to hit the gym, or just sensing a little extra spring in your step.

It will teach you how to take care of yourself and your family.

Dr. El desires that his patients commit to a life of better health. Acupuncture is the basis for acupressure, which is a wonderful self-care tool for keeping yourself and your loved ones healthy. Nothing beats routine acupuncture treatments, but for preventive care and in between acupuncture sessions, acupressure can work wonders.

I came to Dr. El with knee issues, the traditional knee specialist wanted to operate again, that would mean three arthoscopic surgeries. I didn't want to go through it again, after receiving Acupuncture only on 3 sessions, I realized that I only need 1 to 2 treatments every quarter and I could avoid surgery. Also Dr. El fixed my allergies, and I mean boy did he fix my allergies, call, email, log on to his site to learn more about your health. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.
