- Hi to Bernard and others out there
I'm an acupuncturist in England, practising for 11 years now, with general
experience and special interest in pregnancy and childbirth. Looking
forward to meeting others on the list and sharing thoughts and ideas.
- Hi Amanda. I am an acupuncturist in Washington state, USA, practicing
for 5 years. No offense to the students and lay people on the list, but
I am glad to see a practitioner is present. I would like to discuss
interesting cases, discoveries, problems, etc. Not that students can't
be part of that, don't get me wrong.....

I got a CML (chronic myeloid leucemy) on July 96 (>250.000 WBC) and have had
big chance to be selected for a bone marrow transplantation on may 97.
In the meantime I was treated by chemo-drugs in order to reduce the level of
white blood cells.
The transplantation was not a full success and 10 % of old mutating cells
so I accepted a second one in July 98.
The last treatment induced a general GVH, on a such level that I was needing
a cortisone therapy for
the next 12 months.
Actually I'm working with a TCM therapist since 2 month and our first
results are coming soon,
my GVH is disappearing slowly and the fitness coming back.
Let's coming to TCM, I started my studies in parallel to the CML an
