I reported my results to the Dr. the next day and he was happy I had such a good experience. He suggested he put in these little gold acupuncture studs to leave in my ears for 5 days. I agreed to this also. Here is one of the little gold studs and you can see how tiny they really are.
So you are probably wondering how it all worked out. Well, I didn't think the gold posts worked as well as the original needles I had. Maybe it was the power of suggestion that first day, I don't know. But it's hard to say because while I had the gold posts in I had some things going on that stressed me a bit. for instance the first night they were in, Giuilana came in at 2:30 am to tell me she was home from Prom. I heard her come in so that woke me up. Then on Monday I was asked to teach seminary and so I was stressing out about the lesson which caused me to wake up multiple times. I think it did help me relax but sometimes my mind is mightier than the medicine. So my conclusion is, I definitely think there is a place for acupuncture in the medicine wold.
