My name is Julia, I am 40 years old and live in Chicago. I can safely say that Oleg saved my life. A few months ago, just 3 months after the birth of my baby I experienced an extreme case of hyperthyroidism. The T3 and T4 hormones were seven times the normal levels, and conversely, the TSH was below all thinkable levels. In addition, the doctors, through the ultrasound, discovered 3.5 cm nodule which they preliminarily diagnosed as suspecting cancer, as well as two other nodules on another side of thyroid 1.6 cm each. The biopsy came back as “undeterminable” and demonstrating atypical cells formation. The surgery was scheduled and had to be proceeded with as urgent but due to the extremely high levels of T3 and T4, I could not be operated on. The condition has worsened to a degree that I could no longer walk or even speak and had a constant body and joints ache as if I had a flu….for 8 weeks and on. The prescribed Methimasol not working, beta blockers, steroids – nothing was working. I was popping a gram of Tylenol and Advil each day just to deal with awful joint aches. The doctor’s orders were to make a decision soon which meant to stop breastfeeding and proceed to hospitalize and begin radioactive iodine treatment in order to shut off the thyroid and then have a surgery to remove the entire thyroid. My husband, a doctor himself, is a big believer in acupuncture. I began my acupuncture treatment the day I was supposed to present to hospital but opted out to wait. We started with Oleg’s colleague who developed the treatment plan but who had to leave the city for three weeks. After two acupuncture sessions with Oleg, 3 altogether in just one week, all my hormone levels were normal. The endocrinologist and endocrinal surgeon were finding no explanation. I then continued treatment with Oleg for three more weeks and rescheduled the surgery to push it further a little. I was back to my normal self in just three weeks. While continuing treatment by Oleg and his colleague, I went to a repeat biopsy (3 months after the initial one) and the entire crew and myself were stunned: there was nothing to biopsy! The ultrasound shoed not a single nodule, not even a mass. The radiologist could not believe his eye but the result he saw was precisely what my acupuncturist were telling me that would most likely happen. Surgery cancelled, no cancer scare, and no hyperthyroidism. It is mind-blowing to look back three months when I was literally on deathbed, unable to move and with a heart rate of 200 for days, but that this is all in the past and without any surgeries or medications. I am continuing to breastfeed my baby, work, exercise, and live an absolutely normal life all thanks to my acupuncturists. Does acupuncture work? If my story does not prove it, I don’t know what will. That being said, I am pretty sure that it is not that every acupuncturist can do wonders. I do know, however, that Oleg can and does do wonders. His extensive training, scientific approach, care and patience are what make him exceptional and his treatment plans effective. Thank you, Oleg, for saving my life!
