Life is Really Different Here, and I Enjoy That

Living in the land of beautiful people means that I take great care to look good at all times. Growing up in my own home country was very different. I was a teen during the grunge years in the 1990s. Young people often wore torn t-shirts, torn jeans, flannel shirts and grungy boots as a norm when I was in college. But it’s quite the opposite where I live and work now.

I know people go for alternative treatments for a lot of reasons. For me, it is just plain fear. If I can have a procedure done that is not invasive at all, I am definitely going that route. Also, if I can have something natural do the same thing that prescription medication like narcotics will do, then I will always go the natural route. When I started feeling a lot of pain after an auto accident, I decided to look at a Chicago acupuncture specialist first. I had been hearing good things about acupuncture, and I knew that it was definitely worth a short before trying anything else.

I had done my research before making this decision. While I will always go the natural route, I will not do that if I am not confident that it is a legitimate thing I am going to do. Continue reading
