Patient Success Story
It took my doctors four years to diagnose Burning Mouth Syndrome as my chronic pain got worse and worse.
During that time I tried 20 different herbs and prescriptions as my doctors tried to find solutions to the worsening chronic pain. They sent me to 10 "Handling Pain Classes," several pain clinics, two specialists at OHSU, many counselors, and all kinds of resources to try and minimize the pain. As we reached what I felt the end of resources we decided to try acupuncture which had been recommended by doctors over the years but we had delayed because insurance did not cover it.
I went from a 8 or 9 on the pain scale all day every day to a 1 or 2. Every week the acupuncture reduced the pain. I was amazed, and every week the pain lessened. Lei Liu and his staff have made a tremendous improvement in my pain, stress, and anxiety. I highly recommend acupuncture, Lei Liu, and his clinic to anyone looking for help and relief.
Medicines and procedures I've tried prior to acupuncture:
- Vitamin B Complex
- Allergy test, blood work
- Biopsy of mouth
- Protopic Ointment
- Gabapentin (tried twice)
- Doxepin cream
- Tacrolimus ointment
- Ketoconazole cream
My doctor's name was Zheng Gong. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for two years via traditional medicine, hormones, and other procedures. Nothing was working for us. In our last visit concerning the matter with our physician, we were told that our only option was in vitro fertilization.
After extensive research on the internet, I discovered that acupuncture could be an option. I then made an appointment to see Zheng Gong. That was 2 1/2 months ago. I was immediately put at ease, and not only felt comfortable with the treatment, but trusted Dr. Gong. She has very positive energy that inspired me a nd gave me hope.
I am happy to say that all of my hopes and trust have resulted in the miracle of pregnancy. I believe that God gave me wisdom and guidance to choose G&L Acupuncture, and specifically Dr. Zheng Gong. Thank you for your amazing service! I will definately recommend this clinic!
I suffered from severe asthma due to allergies for at least 2 months. The asthma was causing an awful cough which was making me lose sleep. I was spending over $200 a month on 5 different allergy medications and I was still suffering. I was at my breaking point because I was completely exhausted physically, mentally, and emotionally. Perhaps related, I was also in constant pain at the time with headaches and joint pain, especially in my knees.
Since starting treatments, I have had amazing results. My allergies and asthma improved each visit, and I saw an improvement in my energy levels within 2 weeks. After 2 months of treatments I am only on one allergy medication, I don't have headaches or join pain anymore, and I am sleeping a lot better. I am very happy to have my quality of life back!
I have been going to G&L for both acupuncture and massage to help with back pain and sciatica from a herniated disc for a few months now. I am feeling more relief than I've felt in nearly a year of physical therapy.
The office staff and practitioners are warm and welcoming and really take the time to learn about your unique condition and what you feel you need. The office atmosphere is calming, healing, and friendly. Personally, I really enjoy the relaxing music they play during treatment.
I definitely recommend G&L for anyone looking for a holistic healing experience!
