Twenty years ago I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). My symptoms were anxiety with panic attacks. I was treated by several Psychiatrists and Psychologists. Therapy was unsuccessful since I was suffering from a chemical imbalance verse emotional trauma. I was prescribed a number of psychotropic drugs. The SSRI's had horrible side effects on me and the only drug which seemed to help was high potency benzodiazepines.
I spent the next 16 years on a physician prescribed addiction to benzodiazepines. This included interdose withdrawal symptoms which required increasing of my daily dosage. I made a personal decision to discontinue the use of benzodiazepines. Even though my taper was slow I experienced horrible withdrawal symptoms. I ended up having protracted withdrawal syndrome long after my last dose of benzodiazepines.
I was very sick when I first met Dr. Liu. I had severe anxiety with panic, insomnia, confusion, and deep depression. I was running out of options when it came to my health decisions and decided to give Chinese medicine a try. I am very glad I did. After a few sessions I felt subtle changes in my anxiety and depression. After several more it was like a light switch turned on. My anxiety was gone and I was able to sleep. All my other symptoms seem to be relieved shortly after. I had forgotten what life without anxiety had felt like. I have a lot of catching up on life to get to.
I have a number of regrets from all the missed opportunities from the past 20 years, but my biggest regret was not trying Chinese medicine first. If anyone is reading this and the pain sounds familiar, please give Dr. Liu a chance. Dr. Liu is a very experienced and confident doctor. During our first consultation he told me he could correct my qi, and he did. Considering what you would otherwise spend on modern medication and therapy, this is a very affordable and painless option.
Xie Xie Dr. Liu and bless you.
