I came to see Kate after spending 2 months trying to understand whatâ€™s happening with my body. I felt tired day after day â€“ as if I am on the verge of getting sick â€“ with sore throat and feeling of congestion in my head. My PCP couldnâ€™t explain what it was, and the only hypothesis she had was that it was an allergy of some sort (in February!), and offered to put me on steroids. I saw two other acupuncturists in Boulder but they didnâ€™t help. Kate spent an hour and a half with me â€“ she had great welcoming attitude and in addition to treating me with needles she mixed individual herbs to relieve congestion in my head. After several visits I started to feel better. Kate continued to fine-tune my herbal supplements and I feel back to normal. I never figured out what it was â€“ altitude affect, some strange virus, sinus congestion or allergies, but I am immensely grateful to Kate for helping my body to fight it off and come back to its healthy state.
