I would recommend Carolyn to anyone

I would recommend Carolyn to anyone! She is extremely passionate about her work and healing her patients! I have had hypothyroidism my whole life and the side effects of this disease has had a very negative effect on my health! For the last 2 years I have had to take steroids 3 to 4 times a year because my thyroid grows and blocks my airway. Since starting herb treatment 6 months ago with Carolyn I have been steroid free! Many aspects of my health have improved and I feel great!

I’m glad I took the chance. I’m glad I trusted Carolyn and my gut

When my son was 3 1/2 months old he developed a rash that I thought was eczema. I tried absolutely EVERYTHING to help it but it got worse and worse as time went on. I made a couple of visits to the DR and he told me that sometimes infants have skin issues but eventually he’d grow out of it. My brother was also very sensitive when he was younger so everyone just assumed it was something my son inherited. The rash got so bad that my son couldn’t help but claw at his face, body, and head. He drew blood, he cried, I cried…it was terrible. I went back to the DR again and as I walked through the waiting room people were gasping because of how irritated he was. I felt awful. When the DR walked in he said the next step would be to prescribe a steroid and to only use it for flare ups. Even though I was reluctant to use it because of the side effects, I did and he cleared up within a few hours. It was a temporary solution to a problem that wasn’t so temporary…The rash came back.

My mother has been a patient of Carolyn’s for years and when she was asking about the baby and I, my mom was telling her about all of his issues. She asked several questions about my pregnancy and my delivery and said she could help. My mother called me the minute she left the office and I called Carolyn the same day.

She evaluated my son and I, and started us on a round of herbs. He’s breastfed so it would take some time but he would receive the herbs through my milk. I started the herbs that day and hoped for the best. It didn’t happen right away but there was a ton of improvement within the first couple of weeks, maybe even week. We continued with the herbs for a few months and I’m happy to say that my sons skin is completely healed. No more cradle cap, no more skin irritations, no more scratching…nothing. I did tell my pediatrician at our 6 month appointment what I was doing and he told me “most of the world practices that type of medicine, so I’m not going to tell you not to.”

I’m glad I took the chance. I’m glad I trusted Carolyn and my gut. I’m most glad that I didn’t solve the issue with chemicals that had terrible side effects. I would recommend Carolyn to anyone and everyone.

 

In 2010 I was diagnosed with Bilateral Meniere’s Disease

In 2010 I was diagnosed with Bilateral Meniere’s Disease which consists of daily migraines, vertigo, visual disturbances and more. I was unable to work, drive, or function even in my own home. Dr. started me on HCTZ and also did an MRI to make sure there was nothing else going on in my brain, as well as scheduled me with a Neurologist. In June of 2009 my husband had been on a mission trip and met a woman that through holistic medicine had prevented herself from having to have a heart transplant. So in Nov of 2010 we left my Duke Dr. appointment who gave me little hope and only switched around more drugs, & my husband made a phone call & we went to see a holistic Dr. This Dr. explained to me and my husband the importance of my dietary changes and started me on a Nutritional shake as well as an organic drink for dehydration.

In 2011 while having a conversation with my Meniere’s Dr I explained to him that it felt like the top of my head was going to blow off. So he recommend a spinal tap to see what my spinal pressure was. It was 10, needed to be around 14-17 according to Dr who did the spinal tap. So they set up a milligram. They found 5 holes in my spinal cord which they patched and Dura Diverticula on the top on of my spinal cord. They covered those to attempt to stop them from growing & I and stayed in the worse pain of my life for weeks. I could not move, I could not eat and if I attempted to, I lost it. My spinal fluid was so high that I could not even sit up because the pressure hurt so badly. My husband called the Dr that did the procedure every single day and they keep increasing the medication. Finally after 3 weeks of torment it broke and I was better and a lot better.

I went back to see my Meniere’s Dr as a follow up and he changed my medication realizing that I have too much fluid on my brain. The drug was too strong and sent me into Metabolic Acidosis. After recovering from this episode and of course another spinal tap to check my pressure and seeing that it was still too high. So my Meniere’s Dr. had a suggestion of a Mastoidectomy that should allow some relief from the pressure, ringing in the ears, migraines, etc. we agreed and in July 2012 he performed surgery which included removing part of my skull.

My migraines were raging out of control still so my Neurologist recommended 2 things. The first one, a DHE infusion & the 2nd Botox injections. I agreed to the infusions and we started those every 30 days. Things were so bad they put me in the hospital and gave me the infusions every 4 hours around the clock for 5 days. Again lots of blown IVs and swollen arms. As well as one night my blood pressure was 57/39. Drs and nurses in my room all night and they still insisted on finishing the rounds of infusions. It took some time but I finally agreed to start the 31 Botox injections per session every 90 days. They felt like 31 wasp had attacked and would not let go.

I was miserable and I was not improving. Then we found Classical Chinese Herbs and Acupuncture. After just a few short days I started seeing results such as lessening of the ringing in my ears & my migraines even became not so intense. However I was still taking large quantities of medications and unfortunately like most of the USA we trust our Drs way too much. I can honestly say Carolyn at Classical Herbs & Acupuncture has done more for me than all the Drs I have ever been too. With Carolyn’s help I have come off of over 20+ prescriptions. Carolyn has studied all over the world and knows more about Chinese Medicine than anyone I have ever talked to. I am forever grateful, because all the trauma I was put through was unnecessary. No matter the disease or pain you are facing before you fill your body with manufactured chemicals, You owe it to yourself to try Classical Herbs & Acupuncture, it’s the way to allow your body to heal itself right down to your DNA cells.

 

 

Carolyn Cook treated me for Sciatic nerve pain

Carolyn Cook treated me for Sciatic nerve pain as well as scar tissue and discomfort that resulted from bunion surgery in my foot. I was so delighted with the results that I continue to see her for maintenance as well as herbal prescriptions for chronic cough and digestive problems. I’ve been to a variety of acupuncturists in the past, but was never as pleased as I’ve been with Dr. Cook who always fixes what pains or ails me. She uses the thinnest needles and latest cupping methods. I highly recommend Dr. Carolyn Cook for anyone considering acupuncture and/or herbal remedies.

 

Acupuncture saved me multiple times

Acupuncture saved me multiple times when Western Medicine couldn’t make the pain go away after various traumas!I’ve encountered multiple acupuncturists in many different areas & Dr. Carolyn Cook is among the best!! Her herbal remedies are also amazing! Do your body & mind a favor & go check her out at Classical Herbs & Acupuncture! You will be glad you did!

 

I feel 90% better than I have in years

I feel 90% better than I have in years. Dr. Cook has prescribed herbs and a full treatment plan that has really performed wonders on my entire body. The Acupuncture has been very relaxing and not all what many including myself would think. The needles or pricking is painless and she’s very experienced so don’t shy away…you can handle it. The herbal medicine was new to me, but what it has done for my intestinal issues is nothing short of a miracle. After a major surgery over 10 years ago I was left with a huge scar and and knots or hard scar tissue. I was constantly bloated and uncomfortable. Since going to Classical herbs and Accupuncture those hard places have soften and my stomach has begun to change. I feel so much better. I’m excited to see how I’ll feel by the end of the year. My changes were quick.I’ve been going since October 2015 so not even a full two months and I’m over the top!

 

Highly recommended!

Desperate for relief from recent knee surgery, along with terrible digestion issues and lazy bladder output (but finding none from Western medicine), thought I would give acupuncture a try. I thankfully found Classical Herbs and Acupuncture’s Dr. Cook through favorable reviews in my local Miami area. Dr. Cook is very knowledgeable, has a terrific bedside manner, and is determined to obtain answers in order to provide relief. After the first treatment with acupuncture and her specially-prepared herbal medicine, I could tell we were on the right track. Relief for each ailment is being reached, pain and swelling have subsided substantially and my stomach has never felt better. Highly recommended!
