Patient Care Stories | Kathya Alexander, Patient

Kathya Alexander, 
Treated by: Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, Naturopathic Medicine

Before I began treatment at Bastyr Center for Natural Health, I struggled with plantar fasciitis, heart disease, high blood pressure and joint pain. I ached all over, couldn’t sleep at night, and could barely even walk. I was physically and emotionally hurting. But after only one year of acupuncture and naturopathic treatment, my life has changed. I feel better than I have in the past four years.

What I’ve appreciated most about my experience at Bastyr Center was that my doctor actually listened to me and never once pushed medication at me. Traditional doctors told me that I was just getting old and that I either needed to live with the pain or take pain medications. My doctor at Bastyr Center gave me more than a prescription, she gave me comfort. More importantly, she gave me hope by assuring me that I could get better.

Now, I have taken responsibility for my own health and I am no longer suffering through my old symptoms. Bastyr Center changed my life by alleviating my pain without dozens of pain killers. I can finally say that I have gotten my joy back.
