Case Studies: Child with Tourette’s Syndrome


Helping Child with Tourette’s Syndrome Excel WeMED had the pleasure of treating A.B., a ten-year-old child diagnosed with Tourette’s syndrome.

Case Studies: Child’s Hearing


Restoring Child’s Hearing with Acupuncture My son has experienced recurring ear infections since he was three years old. For two years, we treated his ear infections with antibiotics, but it was only a matter of time before he got sick with another infection. The persistent fluid collection in his ears began to affect his hearing, so when he was five years old, we took him to an ENT specialist to insert ear tubes. The ear tubes worked for two years, and we had no problems, but after the tubes fell out, the fluid collection returned as did his hearing problems. [...]

Case Studies: Child’s Severe Allergies


Alleviating Child’s Severe Allergies with Acupressure My 9-year-old son has been coming to the weMED Clinic since August of 2013. When my son was very young, he started exhibiting seasonal allergy symptoms. By the time he was eight years old, however, his symptoms had worsened to the point where he had allergy symptoms almost daily and caught colds very easily. I didn’t know what to do, and I didn’t want to give him antihistamines because of the possible side effects. While searching for an acupuncturist who would treat children, I finally found Dr. You and Dr. Ma at the weMED [...]

Case Studies: Child’s Chronic Ear Infections


A Lasting Solution for Child’s Chronic Ear Infections My infant son’s persistent ear infections began in November 2013, just before his first birthday. Nothing seemed to stop the onslaught of ear infections. It only took a few days after we completed one course of antibiotics for my son to get another ear infection, which demanded a whole new round of antibiotics. It got so bad that my pediatrician told me that, if he got one more infection, my son would have to go to an ENT for ear tubes. Even though I am a nurse and have many friends whose [...]

Case Studies: Warren Crohn’s Disease, Weight Loss


weMED helped Warren combat his Crohn’s disease, kickstart his weight loss journey, wrangle his high blood pressure, reduce his plantar fasciitis. When Warren first visited weMED, he struggled with a nasty case of Crohn’s disease. Because of the corticosteroids he took to treat his Crohn’s, he was severely overweight. Additionally, he had advanced hypertension and dangerously high blood pressure. An incapacitating case of plantar fasciitis prevented him from being active or exercising, and his Crohn’s disease sabotaged his attempts at eating a healthy diet. Warren’s low energy levels forced him to leave work early nearly every day, and he felt [...]
