Latest Case Study – Acupuncture, Depression and Anxiety
Dr. Liu had been working in China as a scientist for over 40 years. He retired in 1993 and came to Boston to visit his children. He used to be in charge of 40 people working on many scientific projects before he retired. Once he stopped working, he lost his daily routine and started eating a lot of milk chocolate and cookies after he came to Boston. He used to eat a lot of fruit when he was young and played many kinds of spots while he was studying in Beijing. After he retired, he stopped his intense exercise and started watching TV and using a computer before he went to sleep. He gradually developed insomnia. The lack of sleep and Vitamins and minerals made his nervous system out of balance. By the time he came to Boston to take care of his grandchildren, he was no longer a calm and happy father. He developed anxiety, severe insomnia, depression, and panic attack. He almost left his granddaughter and son in the subway in Boston for a few times because of his panic attack. Once the oxygen level dropped to a certain level in the subway or on the airplane, his nervous system became hyperactive and he could not think logically. He could not take MRI or CT scan because of his hyperactive nervous system. Finally, he decided to come to Boston Chinese Acupuncture clinic and got acupuncture treatment for anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
