How I got pregnant with acupuncture – I would like to take this time to recommend Andrew Pacholyk to any woman who is having trouble conceiving. My husband and I have struggled having a child. I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility over two years prior. The only thing my doctor could recommend to me was IUI or IVF treatment. After reading about so many negative side effects and poor statistics on these procedures, my mind was made up after a friend in my office became pregnant and let me in on her secret weapon, Andrew!
Andrew introduced me to acupuncture and over the next 8 months I underwent his painless, relaxing and very informative treatments, once or twice a week until I become pregnant. I cannot recommend him enough! A word about Andrew. He is professional, spiritual, guiding, honest, forth right, hopeful and paid attention to every detail of my pregnancy journey. He understood my frustrations, he countered my insecurities and balanced my approach in getting pregnant. I will never forget something my medical doctor said to me about acupuncture. He said that acupuncture only offers false hope. Well, I am now pregnant in my 24th week and not only was the acpuncture the most affective, Andrew's hope was the greatest gift! Run, don't walk to see Andrew when you are ready to have a child.
Waste of time and money – I completely agree with rabbitrun64 titled "dubious reviews" below. The dude writes his own reviews. I went to him with a certain painful condition that he told me he was an expert in. After first acupuncture session, I felt a temporary relief. The next day, pain was back as before. Encouraged by the first session, I was going to him every week, often twice a week, but didn't experience any noticeable relief any more. He gave me some herbs and showed some exercises, and encouraged me to continue seeing him for acupuncture. After a while, I realized I wasn't getting anywhere with this. I did my research, found some good books about my condition, and found a good physical therapist. With help of that therapist and special exercises that I found in the books, I began feeling much better, and I did not need any acupuncture. I felt betrayed by him. If he was an expert in that field like he said, why didn't he tell me about physical therapy? Knowing what I know now, acupuncture alone, even with those lame exercises that he showed me, would have NEVER EVER resolved my condition. He either knowingly withheld that information from me, or he just doesn't know what he is doing. And now I see he is jumping on the whole infertility wagon - just don't...
great weight loss approach – actually tried hundreds of diet pills, plans, exercise routines, but nothing has come close to Andrew's "plan of attack". I say that because, it is really a special plan devised just for me and my body and my pitfalls. Andrew was quick to let me know that there is no magic bullet, I got that. What made his approach so special was the acupuncture along with his life plan
for healthier eating and taking control of my life. It is a very emotional approach, I found as well. He got me looking at things I did not realize were sabotaging my weight and how what I chose to eat. He went over his Full Spectrum Diet with me, helped me with shopping ideas, eating out and gave me herbs to help boost my metabolism. It is now 15 weeks. I have lost 30 lbs and I am eating so different today. His support and treatments throughout this time in my life were invaluable. If you are serious about your weight and how to change your life, absolutely give Andrew a call.
Oxford recommended – Andrew was listed under Oxford insurance as a fertility specialist. Based on his stellar reviews here and after talking with him on the phone, I went in for a consultation. He was pleasant, knowledgable and answered all my questions. I was pleased by his professional office surroundings and I just had a very comfortable vibe with him. Andrew helped me through some very difficult times and a diagnosis that I thought was going to keep me infertile. Although his approach took longer than my several IVF and IUI attempts, I ultimately believe now that his approach was the one that got me pregnant. He helped in every way that you could imagine, from nutrition, to exercise....and herb and supplement advise. It all proved helpful.
I am at week 36 and very close to my new baby. I cannot be more pleased.
Elizabeth Jean Kendell... – was born exactly one month ago today. She was conceived with the help of Andrew's wonderful
approach to natural fertility! I turned to him after a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. I needed to find someone who could understand my desire to have a child and treat my delicate situation. I visited Andrew weekly for treatments for approximately 8 months. He has a calming, helpful demeanor and was able to answer any questions I had throughout our time working together.
He had great suggestions for looking at my situation in a way no fertility doctor could help me with in the past. He changed the way I ate. He changed the herbal medicine every few weeks. He changed my way of thinking. He helped me to focus on the positive. He helped me with progressive relaxation techniques which really seemed to make a big difference. He helped to regulate my cycle and helped me to understand how to do this. Next to my husband, he was my greatest support system.
When I become pregnant, I saw Andrew through the entire process. He was wonderful. We are thrilled over the birth of our daughter and I am already thinking about our next child!
Choose this doctor, who not only knows his profession but made sense at every point of transition, was compassionate and truly cared about my journey every step of the way.
Spot on, professional, helped my situation – Andrew was recommended to me by my friends at work and now I recommend him to you. I had terrible shoulder pain and could not move my arm. Andrew worked on my shoulder for a couple visits and I no longer suffer from the dibilitating pain. I have full range of motion and no trouble swinging my golf club. Andrew talked to me in a very straight forward manner, in a language I could understand, no mumbo jumbo talk.
He gave me some exercises and herbal pills to help my recovery and was over all very helpful. Definitely one of the top experts in his field. So now, Im off to play golf!
dubious reviews – These reviews are weirdly solicitous, and make me suspicious of who exactly wrote them (the practitioner himself? many are creepily similar in tone, almost worshipful). Acupuncture is not so black and white, and results are often not immediate--it takes time and patience and the dedication of the patient. I have seen different acupuncturists in addition to this one, and as "healers" it should be of no consequence (nor should it *ever* be discussed or intimated by the practitioner) that their clients are "celebrities." To me, this sends up red flags.
Five star acupuncture facial – Although I am not one of the many celebrities I see emerging from Andrew's office on a daily basis, I am a woman who is extremely pleased with the outstanding acupuncture facial work Andrew has given me. He pays attention to details. He listens. He tapped into my needs sometimes before I even asked. (I think he's psychic). Certianly intuitive and gave me a five star treatment everytime I went to visit him in his office. He did a true evaluation of my face and give me a smart diet plan to compliment the treatment work he was doing. By week 10, many of my coworkers were convinced I had work done. Although, the changes are subtle over time, I could even feel a difference. OK, I wasnt to crazy about the herbal regime, but once he converted his crazy teas to pills, it worked with my schedule (and compliance) much better. I now understand why he is in such celebrity demand, but, it is because he is a master at his craft. So when you schedule your appointment, tell him, Anne sent you!
Exceptional fertility specialist – I found Andrew through WebMD. This is my second child I have had because of Andrew. I have been seeing him now for 4 months immediately after I stopped breast feeding Jeffery. During this time, he treated me with acupuncture and herbs to prep my system for our second. I followed his special fertility diet and I found his organic prenatal vitamins just wonderful. I am so thrilled to be pregnant again. I really do owe my Jeffery and my second pregnancy to the expertise, insight and impressive knowledge Andrew so generously shared! I can't imagine considering anyone else in the field of fertility. If you really want a child (or two), this is where you go.
Saved me a week in bed – I pretty much crawled into Andrew's office after pulling my back out in a yoga class. I was bedridden for 3 days, tried chiropractic which didn't help and was in agony. The entire right side of my body was in spasm and my right hip and buttock completely swollen and inflamed. It was so painful that I could barely breathe. In one treatment I was walking - very slowly but walking! The inflammation was down, the pain was down and I could move. I was so impressed with his knowledge of anatomy, muscle attachment, trigger points. Every touch released another spasm, every needle lit up and I could feel the pain ease up immediately. I went back again the next day because I couldn't afford to take off any more time from work and by the end of that treatment I was standing straight and feeling 90% less pain. Andrew not only saved me from great pain but also a weeks worth of salary ( I am self employed so when I am sick it really hurts financially). I highly recommend Andrew and feel so relieved to know that he is there if I need him.
