*I am a 2x breast cancer survivor, 1999 and 2004. I’ve had episodes of severe dizziness in 1996 and again in 2003. In 2003 the symptoms were somewhat resolved with a long-term detox program. In early summer 2005 I had significant episodes of dizziness.

I went to a general practice MD who was stumped after a brain MRI, blood tests, etc. I asked the MD what she thought of acupuncture and if it was worth a try. The MD stated that she did not fully understand it but that she had known of positive results. We agreed I would try acupuncture prior to the battery of tilt table tests.

I was referred to Dr. Dawn Balusik’s office by a friend. Dawn and I discussed my history and she recommended I try acupuncture / massage and two herbal blends. When I asked Dawn if acupuncture would work for the dizziness she believed there was a good possibility, but I would know for sure after a few treatments.

After 2 or 3 treatments the dizziness was minimized. After a month or so of once a week treatments the symptoms have been resolved. I now have a treatment once a month and will work with Dawn to determine the frequency of treatments in the future. I will continue the simple herbal regimen. Dawn has also been working with me to resolve a sports-related hip flexor soreness.
