“I suffer from Ramsay-Hunt syndrome (shingles of the nerve in the inner ear). There is nothing further conventional medicine can do for me. Vahida has been treating me for facial spasms and synkenesis. I feel very much that this treatment is helping my symptoms and I find Vahida to be a kind, understanding and professional therapist.” Angela
“It is 13 years since I wrote an article in Spin magazine on acupuncture and Menieres. I have since then gone from strength to strength.
The doctors have dismissed me because they said there’s nothing more they can do for my Menieres Syndrome.I must keep taking the SERK (medication) 16mg three times a day.
I am down to 8mg once a day! I haven’t had a vertigo attack in ten years. My tinnitus is under control and I am certainly not as deaf.
Why? Because thanks to my acupuncturist I have learnt to mange my Menieres syndrome and of course I have been having acupuncture. Her favourite phrase is ‘listen to your body’. Our one hour sessions which initially I had every month and now every six months, have not only the needles but also a consultation. In that time I have learnt to recognise what triggers the symptoms ( tinnitus, deafness and vertigo), the best diet for my body, counteract with natural remedies- celery, parsley and asparagus as a diuretic, beetroot and red meat fro iron.. I have learnt how to mange stress, a trigger for Menieres and tiredness, another trigger.
Over the years I have used my acupuncture for other ailments. My doctor is known to say; I don’t think I have seen you for over a year. Acupuncture can be a form of maintenance, especially through the winter months when there are lots of infections around. It boost up my immune system and can help me sleep. If I am having headaches, backache, pulled a muscle, got sinusitis, I go and have acupuncture. It always works for me.” Joanna
“Dear Vahida, thank you for all the treatment you have given me along with some very sound dietary advice . When I came to you I was on the maximum dose of Steroid inhaler to control my chronic asthma. I now am free of steroids completely and using your monthly treatments, essential oils and herbal capsules to effectively control my asthma, all of which you recommended. Again, many thanks”. Matt
