Success Stories: Real-Life Testimonials

For about 4 years my husband and I tried to conceive and had no results. I consulted with several medial professionals and underwent various painful and costly exams only to determine - "NOTHING". There did not seem to be anything specifically wrong with me. Yet month after month, I grew increasingly more frustrated, I was 34 when I decided to take matter seriously; I was determined to find a cure to my medical problem.

In May 2010, I read an online article about how acupuncture improves fertility and visited Dr. Sun in McAllen. In his office, I filled out a questionnaire about my medical history. He also looked at the contours of my tongue to determine my current state.I began a combination of acupuncture and herbal treatment right away. He also recommended a book to help me understand how acupuncture improves fertility.

I realized that if I wanted to address the infertility issue through a natural means such as acupuncture, it meant making adjustments to my body as a whole, not a specific area.I figured if I had spend years being infertile, therefore, the " restoration " process could be lengthy. But I knew I had to exercise patience as I had chosen the most non-invasive method to tackle my issues.

I identified certain factors of my reproductive cycle and made sure I visited Dr. Sun around that time to help stimulate those particular events. After several months of acupuncture sessions and herbal supplements, I began to notice an improvement with some of the chronic health problems I had had for years—like constipation, recurring urinary infections, and cystic acne. I`d even noticed an improvement with my energy level and emotional state. In addition, I changed some of my eating habits, took pre-natal vitamins, and continued taking the medications given to me by my OBGYN.

In July 2011, I walked into Dr. Sun`s office to inform him that I was 6 weeks pregnant and could not be happier. My hormonal composition had been reconditioned (as indicated in my blood tests and my OBGYN`s office). Looking back, I am glad that successfully becoming pregnant and restoring my overall health naturally through acupuncture (as opposed to IVF or insemination) worked for me. I like to share my experience with others who seem to be going through the same thing we did because many women are unaware of the health options.

My 38-week pregnancy ran smoothly. My symptoms were minimal and I would like to think that my body was well prepared for pregnancy. One healthy baby girl later, I have returned to Dr. Sun`s office for acupuncture, but this time it`s for relaxation purposes.

Dr. David Sun,

My name is Dan Epstein. As you probably recall, I came to visit you for the first time about eighteen months ago with a swollen ankle. The swollen ankle happened about a year before as a result of stepping in a hole on an uneven dirt area during gardening. That involuntary movement caused my ankle to twist and resulted on a swollen muscle or tendon in my ankle.

For close to a year after this accident, I visited several doctors, including a foot surgeon that wanted to cut the wounded area and reconstruct the muscle to let it heal properly. I declined. I got cortisone shots to reduce the pain and inflammation so I could walk normally. But eventually the swelling returned and each time the pain became worst. Finally my wife convinced me to seek the help of acupuncture. Being a former scientist, this form of medicine was foreign to me and I approached it with great skepticism. But I did not have much to lose, so I tried.

After the first two sessions of acupuncture, I already felt better and after another two I was so well that I did not return again. However, since we like to walk and travel, after a year and half the pain returned and a few sessions restored my foot to health. This time I expect to follow your advice and come to see you for sporadic tune-ups. I am confident it will maintain me fit enough to keep up with my wife without resorting to surgery or strong medicines (cortisone, etc).

Thank you very much for relieving my pain, and again allowing me to walk normally.

My name is Hollis Ray Pegoda. I live at 411 N. 41st St. #6 in McAllen, Texas. Last year in March of 2009, I started having recurring Hiccups. They would last approximately a week to eight or nine days. Then they would go away for a week. This pattern held for the rest of the year. I saw several Doctors during this time and nothing they did or prescribed helped. In January of this year (2010) one of my Doctors talked to a friend of his who had lots of experience with Hiccups. This doctor said Acupuncture had had success with Hiccups. He gave me the name and phone number of Dr. Sun and suggested I try it. During my first two visits to Dr. Sun, I had Hiccups then. After my second visit, I woke up the next morning, and they were gone -- they haven't come back.

I recommend Dr. Sun with no reservations.

Thanks, Dr. Sun

I was 31 years old in December of 2007. I found myself wanting a baby...little did I know what lied ahead. I had become pregnant a couple of years earlier and miscarried. My doctor didn't seem too worried. He felt that it just wasn't the time, and that I would be able to conceive again. I hadn't been trying to get pregnant, so I went about my daily life never thinking about that again until December 2007. I become pregnant in February 2008 and miscarried before the fifth week. My doctor referred me to a fertility doctor and he performed several tests. Everything came back normal, so he said it might have just been bad luck. Then in April 2008 I became pregnant again, and I had miscarriage #3. In the summer of 2008 I started feeling desperate...I wanted a baby no matter what. So I found Dr. Sun. I had not told anyone, but after the third miscarriage I felt tired, bloated, and a constant back pain. I had seen that acupuncture worked on my husband's shoulder, so I went to talk to Dr. Sun. I explained what was going on with me, and he asked me a couple of questions, I answered yes to all of them. He told me he knew what the problem was and that if I just followed the treatment, I would be able to see results. After a couple of sessions, pills, and teas, he wished me luck and I was on my way. Just one month later, in August 2008 I saw those two little red lines I so badly wanted to see... "Of all the joys a woman will ever know, the greatest is the moment she becomes a mother." In April 2009 I experienced that for myself. I became a mom to a healthy and happy baby girl. Thank you, Dr. Sun, for helping me see what I never imagined I would see.

I was suffering from severe back pain. A friend of mine referred me to Dr. Sun´s Acupuncture & Massage Clinic. Since the pain was getting worse, I was ready to try anything, so I visited Dr. Sun. After a few visits, my pain was gone, and now I can enjoy my life with no back pain. I also have more energy to enjoy the things I like to do.

Thanks, Dr. Sun

Dr. David Sun´s Effective treatment of my Allergy

I had severe food allergies for many years. There was hardly any food that I was able to eat without experiencing gastrointestinal problems, constant fatigue, dizziness, headaches, and muscle pain.

When I moved to Edinburg, I found Dr. Sun´s website and read about the NAET treatment. At first, I was really skeptical about the treatment, but after a few treatments, I realized a change. I found that every time I finished a treatment, I could expand the range of foods I was able to eat without experiencing problems.

I am very happy that I found out Dr. Sun and NAET! I highly recommend Dr. Sun and his allergy treatment to everyone who has allergies!

To Whom It May Concern,

I had severe tension in my back and neck that affected my whole body. I thought I had severe health problems, so I went to have an MRI done to correct it. The doctor's diagnosis was that I had a pinched nerve.
A friend of mine recommended that I see Dr. Sun before I committed to any other form of treatment. On the first visit he worked on pressure points and gave me a massage, which relieved the tension that was causing the pain.

I am only sorry that I was not aware of Dr. Sun sooner. I could have saved myself a lot of pain and expense. I would highly recommend him to anyone who suffers as I did. I feel wonderful now and haven't had any further pain since my last visit.

To Whom It May Concern,

I was having excruciating pain on my left knee and was getting around on crutches. I had already visited a surgeon and had been told that I needed to have it operated on. I was referred to Dr. Sun by a good friend of mine, and at first I told my friend that I did not believe in this type of medicine. After a few weeks of the continuing pain, I finally decided to pay Dr. Sun a visit.

I walked in on crutches, and I left with the crutches over my shoulder. He treated me one time and the pain was totally eliminated. I highly recommend his services.

To Whom It May Concern,

A month ago, I somehow pulled my back and was unable to walk. I was having a horrible time, simply hoping that the pain would go away because I did not have the time to go to a doctor to be referred to a chiropractor who would only "fix me" well enough for the next visit. When a friend suggested that I try acupuncture, I looked at her with a great deal of skepticism for the Eastern art, mostly because of my lack of knowledge, but I decided that it was worth a try and would only take an hour out of my day. I made an appointment with Dr. Sun, still with disbelief. Dr. Sun spent our time together in a very professional manner as he massaged my injured area and then proceeded with the acupuncture and cupping procedures. Much to my relief, there was no pain during any part of the process.

After my time with him, which I must admit was relaxing and therapeutic, I continued with my normal activities, still bothered by the pain in my lower back. However, as the day progressed, I began to feel that the pain was shifting to a more external place in my back. My friend confirmed for me that this feeling was expected as the procedures worked to pull the pain from my body. By the next afternoon, I felt no pain whatsoever in my lower back. I was amazed that a back injury could be cured so quickly and painlessly. I am now a true believer in this Eastern art and in Dr. Sun's expertise. I now refer all of my friends to him with any and all injuries. As well, I have no doubt that I will continue to visit Dr. Sun in future with injuries of this nature, and I have no doubt that he will "fix me up!"
