Digestive Issues

“I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis (UC) when I was a newly married 22 year old. When I got pregnant a year later, the symptoms only got worse and the flares more frequent, requiring a blood transfusion and an emergency C-section 5 weeks prematurely (thankfully my baby boy was perfect and healthy). I was accepted into pharmacy school 7 months later, and continued to fail all the treatments my doctors tried to keep my UC in check, all the while suffering many devastating side effects of western medications. I was repeatedly hospitalized, missing time from my family and from my studies. I sought treatment from some of the nation’s leading doctors in gastroenterology, traveling out of state to seek their guidance and experimental treatments… In the end, they all agreed that removing my colon was the best option. I lived with an ileostomy bag for a year and a half before they were able to reconnect what was left of my “plumbing”. In the meantime I graduated from Pharmacy School, but the illness had damaged more than just my physical body… It lead to depression and eventually the demise of my marriage. I was still suffering from many loose stools, sometimes still bloody, related to inflammation in the new “rectum” that the surgeons had created, commonly referred to as pouchitis. When I began to see Emily Liburdi for treatment of these symptoms, I began to see immediate results! Her combination of acupuncture and herbs were amazingly effective at returning my stools and bowel habits back to as close to normal as they had ever been! I believe that everything happens for a reason, and therefore, even my illness was a blessing to be learned from… However, I also believe, with all my heart, that had I gone to Emily for treatment years ago, I’d still have all my original body parts”. – RT

“I have been seeing Emily at Beaumont Integrative Medicine for acupuncture since May 2013. My neurologist had referred me for my MS. Since I have been going to my weekly acupuncture visits, I have felt much improvement overall. I have IBS and acupuncture has helped with that. I am 57 years old and feel that the acupuncture I receive weekly has made my headache less intense, my sinuses better and I have more energy. I only wish I had started acupuncture years ago. Thank you Emily.” -RS

“Emily Liburdi is a caring, compassionate acupuncture practitioner with a pleasing manner. I have had chronic colitis since 1995 and after a series of treatments have not had a major flare up. I also have an anxiety issue which also vastly improved.” – S.L.

“My husband and I have been going to Michigan TCM Wellness Center for over a year now. It has become a great way for us to do a little self-care, and take time out of our busy day to relax and ensure continued wellness. My husband has been going for ulcerative colitis relief and I have been going for allergies. The atmosphere that Emily has created at her Center is so inviting and relaxing that we look forward to our appointments, and always leave feeling like we just had a mini vacation from life’s stresses. Plus, Emily is a great wealth of knowledge for healthy living and it is always enjoyable to chat with her!”-L.T.
