Haralee, thanks for sharing your info. I had never heard of the Clara Jean Foundation before. Noticed they had a list of practioners on their Web site. Click here if you would like to read more. Haralee, how did you find your accupuncturist? Was it through the recommendation of a friend? A holistic doctor? Other?

Thanks! I think she is pretty cute, but then again I am a little biased!

I would totally recommend it. I was really bummed one day & figured there had to be something better out there than what I was doing. I did an internet search and found my acupuncturist. He was great. I have turned many people onto accupuncture since then -- including my biggest skeptic, my husband!

To dlasher: What an amazing story. I have always been so thankful I have not had to deal with chronic pain. I am so glad you found something that works for you. I am a big believer in holistic treatments -- I think they are so under-rated.

After 3 years of lower back pain, doctors, pills, needles, surgery, therapy, I had, had it! I was so desperate to end it all. The lowest point I had a gun in my hand. Then I remembered if you leave this world before it's your time (by your hands) you come back and do it til it's done right. My great-grandma told me this. So, I gave the gun to my friend and said hold on to it.

Then my oldest daughter said, "Mom try this." Now, I sleep at night and no sleeping pills. I don't take pain pills, sleeping pills, anti-depression medication. My health has improved, I feel better about myself, looks and I have my self esteem back. This amazing product my daughter sent me was Herbalife. I am a believer in this product, you have to heal the inside before you see the outside glow.

I now help my daughter with her Herbalife business. Their is thousands of people who love the holistic way of gaining and losing weight, sleeping, restless leg syndrome (which I have after 6 nerves being pinched in back). My daughter suffers from Fibro. you can read her story on My Space

I tell everyone about holistic healing after what I've been through, there is alternative treatments besides western medicine.

I had a great experience with acupuncture. I sought treatment after having fertility issues. I felt better than I did in years when I did acupuncture. While it hurts a little, it is so relaxing. I am not a napper, and every week I would fall asleep during my treatment session. It regulated the issues I was having with my periods and in two months after I began my treatments I found out I was expecting!

How did you find out about this alternative treatment for fertility? Would you recommend it to others?
Your daughter is beautiful!
