After heart surgery my bowel muscles quit working. Enemas and laxatives were the only solutions but the constipation and suffering continued over a two-month period as I got sicker and sicker. One hospital stay of 3 days and 3 more trips to the ER provided no relief. One acupuncture treatment from Dr. Graves and my bowels started working again, and with continued treatments I am fully recovered and back to work. I no longer think of acupuncture as alternative medicine but rather as a primary source of health care. I’d recommend it to anyone.
