|Acupuncture & Herbal Clinic
In June 2004 I had an ulcerative colitis flare up that
caused a great amount of discomfort, loss of weight, low
energy, lack of appetite, and frequent bowel movements
with blood and pus. The symptoms all together disturbed
my daily activities and my spirit. None of the Western
Medical approaches were helping me. I made an
appointment with Dr. Qijian Ye for acupuncture and
herbal therapy. He recommended weekly treatments and
prescribed me a herbal formula to soothe my ailing
digestive system. Within a few weeks recovery took
place. His diagnosis and treatment has benefitted my life
and my family. My health has been maintained through
September 2005 by taking the herbal formula he
prescribed and weekly acupuncture. My life style needs
stamina as a professional tennis player and business
owner and thanks to Dr. Ye I have the energy and
stamina to maintain my life style. Thank you Dr. Ye for all
that you have done for me.
My name is Andrea and I am 30 years old. I have
been struggling with hormonal imbalance and
acne for about 10 years. I tried homeopathic
medicine, herbal remedies as well as Western
medical treatments for acne, including topical
ointments and antibiotics. Acupuncture has been
the only treatment that has been effective for my
condition. Over the course of several months my
acne has diminished and my hormonal imbalance
has been corrected. In 1999 I was diagnosed with
polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Acupuncture
has eliminated that problem so that no longer
have the syndrome and my menstrual cycle is
Here is a brief summary of my health issues and what Acu-Herb Clinic has done for me:
During a regular check up for my diabetes, I was informed that my blood pressure was high (180/100)
and I would need to take a prescription medication to lower it. With my sister-in-law currently enrolled
at Southwest Acupuncture College, I consulted her and she strongly suggested that I visit Dr. Ye.
During my first visit, I found out that the almost unbearable internal heat that I often felt, my high
blood pressure, and my periodic headaches were all related. At that point, I began acupuncture
treatment and herb supplements, and within an extremely short period of time, my blood pressure was
consistently at 135/75, and the heat I had been feeling had dramatically decreased along with my
headaches. Dr. Ye had also informed me of foods that I needed to reduce in my diet to assist with
the treatments. After several months of treatment and dietary adjustment, all of my health issues that
I had brought to ACU have all but disappeared.
I would like to express my thanks to Dr. Ye and Acu-Herb Clinic and would recommend that anyone
with health issues consult him and the facility, as they will as.
I have always had some unusual problems with my body,
among them chronic constipation as well as severe
inflexibility and tightness. When I started going through a
long and difficult relationship, new problems appeared
such as chest pains and an inability to exercise or exert
myself without becoming pale, weak, dizzy, and risking
fainting. Despite the great amount I learned from an
immediately ensuing severe depression in college, my
body became so tight that I developed painful chronic
golfer's and tennis elbow in both arms, began to have
constant back pain, and stomach acid that lasted nine
months. By this point I had gone to many doctors. The orthopedic surgeon, whose exercises
and stretches offered no relief, suggested surgery as my best alternative. I went to the
physical therapist constantly only for my back to hurt again the next day. Neither my doctor
nor a lung specialist, nor cardiologist could diagnose my heart palpitations and nausea
every time I exercised for them.
When allergy season hit early this February I became so weak that getting to my bathroom
became an adventure. At that point, I picked up a referral and called Dr. Ye. He saw me that
night, and a few needles later the palpitations receded and I had enough energy to walk
comfortably. After six months of herbs and acupuncture, my chest pains have subsided, I'm
regular for the first time in my life, I am more flexible, and in conjuction with Rolfing, no longer
have back pain, and rarely have elbow pain. In addition, my mood is much steadier, I am
more relaxed as a person, and don't get cold as easily. And although I'm not running
marathons quite yet, I can already run short sprints and enjoy hiking again.
I had a red rash that started on my chin. I went to my family
doctor and he prescribed a steroid cream and told me that
the rash looked like a mild case of rosacea. Being a nurse,
I knew rosacea was a condition that was only managed, not
cured. I was hesitant to use the cream because of the side
effects. The cream helped for the first few days, then the
rash got worse and spread to my cheeks. I went back to my
family doctor and was prescribed both an oral and topical
antibiotic. After a few days, I realized that I was allergic to
both of the medications. I did research and found out that
the mechanism in which the antibiotics work to treat
rosecea is poorly understood, since rosecea is not a type of infection. I wasn’t really happy
about taking the antibiotics in the first place. When I went back to the family doctor the third time
he told me there wasn’t really anything else that could be done medically and suggested diet
and life style changes and told me those changes may or may not be helpful. He said the rash
may get better on it’s own or it might not and I would probably be dealing with the condition to
some degree or another for the rest of my life. I decided to give Chinese medicine a try for my
condition. Dr. Ye told me the rash would be gone in six weeks. With acupuncture and herbs the
rash was completely gone in five weeks. I had been to see the gynecologist during the rosecea
break out for a regular check up and when I went back for the follow up she commented on how
amazed she was that the rash was gone and she didn’t even see the shadow of the rash, which
is common. She asked for the name acupuncturist that was treating me. She wanted to refer a
friend of hers that suffers from the condition. I work at a hospital and several of the doctors at
work have commented on how well the herbs and acupuncture worked on treating my condition
especially after the problems I had with the standard medical treatment.
At 34 weeks pregnant I developed a horribly itchy rash on my
thighs and lower abdomen. According to Western medicine I
had a rash that less than 1% of pregnant women get in their
last trimester. I was informed that it would disappear after the
birth of my child and in the meantime could be managed (but
not cured) with drugs which could potentially harm my baby. I
experienced such great discomfort and was unable to sleep
and so I turned to Dr Ye for help. After seeing Dr Ye who
gave me some Chinese herbs and some important dietary
advice, I felt a marked improvement within 24 hours! In 2
weeks 99% of my rash had disappeared!
Approximately six weeks after the birth of my child I
developed extremely painful hemorrhoids. After 2 weeks of
trying over the counter products such as witch hazel pads,
natural creams, homeopathic medicine, suppositories and
herb poultices with no improvement, I went to see Dr Ye
again. In a matter of 1 week, my hemorrhoids were almost
gone! After experiencing such rapid healing with my rash and
hemorrhoids, I will always have great admiration for Dr Ye
and the incredible power of Chinese medicine to heal.

"At the age of 55, I was diagnosed with
hypertension and was referred for a
series of tests to determine the cause.
I did not want to start taking
prescription blood pressure medication
and decided to try acupuncture and
Chinese herbs. After just a few
treatments, my blood pressure was
stabilized and I noticed several
improvements in my overall health."
On September 17, 2004 I went to Urgent Care thinking
that the cold I caught had triggered an asthma attack.
After a chest x-ray and an EKG, I was sent to the
emergency room by Ambulance. During the short
ambulance ride I was given 2 doses of Nitro Glycerin
and oxygen. After 10 hours, several more EKG's, a
CAT scan and an Electro Cardiogram, I was admitted
with congestive heart failure as a result of viral
myocorditis. My heart's ejection fraction was down to
20% and the fluid build up in my chest and around my
heart was preventing my heart from pumping; in short I
was in danger of dying.
I was treated with diuretics, Alpha and Beta blockers,
and other drugs to increase and improve heart
function. Luckily my body responded to these treatments. But I was left with much depleted
health and an undetermined future. My Cardiologist released me from the hospital with
instructions that limited my physical activity and diet. Her comment was that the next 30 days
to my next Echo Cardiogram would determine how much damage was done to my heart and
what level of handicap I would be left with. At that time I was unaware of the potential that I
could require a heart transplant, assuming I survived. I must point out that up until I became ill;
I was completely healthy and very physically active.
Once home I was unable to care for myself or my family. Simple tasks such as driving my
children to school or going up or down my stairs were not possible. I began treatments within a
few weeks of the viral infection that had attacked my heart. Dr. Ye assessed my condition and
reviewed my medical records. He began treatment with acupuncture and herbs. My
improvement was classified as dramatic and unheard of, by my cardiologist and other doctors
who reviewed my records.
The technician, who conducted my follow up Echo Cardiogram, was the same person who saw
me in the emergency room and he also could not believe the improvement. His comment was
that if he hadn't performed the original procedure, he would not have believed that he was
imaging the same person based on the damage he saw the first time.
My cardiologist is convinced that my remarkable recovery is directly attributable to Dr. Ye's
care and Acupuncture, as that was the only derivation from standard medical treatment I had
received. Within 3 months my heart ejections fraction went from 20% to 45% and with in 6
months it was over 50%. At that point my heart function was within normal function ranges, but
more important subsequent tests revealed no permanent damage. Remarkably, I had gone
from the potential of heart transplants, even death to the where I am today 10 months later
with a heart that performs within normal range and has no permanent damage.
I look forward to a long and healthy life, free from disability and dependence on multiple
medications. I thank Dr.Ye and his treatments for my life.
Four years ago, I was diagnosed with
fibromyalgia. I went to various
rheumatologists and they all had the same
thing to offer: a lot of pills and rest and to
accept my condition as something I would
just have to learn to live with. It was very
hard to do basic daily activities and I needed
the constant help of friends or family. After
trying out different types of therapy, like
massage and acupressure, I started going
to acupuncture and seeing results, but not
yet getting the results I wanted. It wasn’t until
two years ago when I began my treatments
with Dr. Ye for acupuncture and herbs that I
started seeing dramatic results that have
since been permanent. It took some time
and patience, but the results are
unbelievable, even to my rheumatologist.
Today I am very healthy, leading a
completely normal life without taking any
I am 42 years old and went to Dr. Ye's office suffering from impotence and fatigue. After a period of
treatment with acupuncture and herbs, I was restored to good function and my overall energy level
has increased. I feel much better now. Thanks to Dr. Ye very much.
Dear Prospective Patient,
My name is Nathan and my first visit to Dr. Ye’s clinic was a little
over a year ago in 2004. The reason I went to see Dr. Ye was
get help with migraine headaches. I had been getting migraine
headaches for ten years. Now that I was going to begin a new career, I did not want the
headaches to interfere with my job. Before seeing Dr. Ye, I tried many other therapies for
migraines including chiropractics and pharmaceutical medication. None of these therapies
worked, and in fact, some of them made my problem worse.
Before I was treated by Dr. Ye, my headaches were more frequent and much more severe.
On average, I had about one headache per month. In times of extreme stress it was possible
for me to have as many as four migraines in five days. As far as severity, the headaches
were so painful, at times, that I could not sleep until I had worn myself out by vomiting several
times from the sheer pain. Furthermore, when I had a migraine, I would get what is called a
‘visual aura’ and my eyes would become extremely sensitive to light.
Since I have been treated by Dr.Ye my condition has improved dramatically. In the year that I
was treated by him I only had one headache which was very mild. I now consider myself to be
cured of migraine headaches. Besides getting rid of the headaches, I now feel more relaxed
on a daily basis and my eyes have become less sensitive to light. I want to thank Dr. Ye for
his help and his kindness.
I sought help from Dr. Ye in October 2004 for problems with
depression caused by stress. This is the second time that I
have been treated by Dr. Ye. Because of the success the
first time I was treated, I felt confident he could again help
I found that my depression was leaving me in where I didn't care about anything. I had many
sleepless nights, didn't feel like doing anything and often slept 3-4 hours longer than I
normally would. I was to the point that I didn't care if I lived or not.
After a few visits to Dr. Ye I noticed a significant improvement in my disposition, although I
would slip periodically, usually when I went through stressful situations at work. During the
treatment process, I had one instance when I started having severe headaches due to
stress. Typically my shoulders and back muscles would tense up causing headaches. This is
something that has plagued me for the past 20 years. I happened to be going to the Doctor
the day I had one of these headaches. He was able to treat me a giving me immediate relief
from the headache. Within a few minutes of the treatment, my headache was completely
gone and my shoulder and neck muscles had relaxed. This was something that normally
would have taken a day or two to go away on its' own.
I have found that Dr. Ye's treatments provide me relief from stress so that I may better
handle it occurs.
Thanks for all your help
I had been suffering from headaches for as many
years as I could remember. I had a headache
almost everyday. As time went on, I not only had
headaches almost everyday but I began having
migraines that became more frequent and severe.
My medical doctor’s solution was Zoloft. Zoloft was
not the long term solution I was looking for. I started
going to Dr. Ye in August 2001 for the treatment of
my headaches. Dr.Ye treated me with acupuncture
and herbs for 1 ½ years with my last treatment being
in March of 2002. It is now, over 2 ½ years later and
I very seldom get a headache.
I still see Dr. Ye a couple times a year. Every time I
feel a cold coming on. I have not had a cold that
lasted more than a few days. Nor are the colds as
severe as in the past.
I started to work with Dr. Ye after trying unsuccessfully for two years to get pregnant.
Western medicine had not worked and numerous medical doctors, including an infertility
doctor, were not able to give my husband and myself a diagnosis of why we were having
such a difficult time conceiving. After having four IUIâ€™s, taking strong infertility
medication that altered my hormones and made me very emotional, and spending
thousands of dollars, we were close to giving up on having a child naturally.
Before completely giving up, my husband and I decided to try some alternative treatment
to help us. That is when we found Dr. Ye. He started working with me two times a week
using acupuncture and herbs and worked with my husband using herbs. Within the first
month, I felt changes in my energy level and my menstrual cycle, and a rash that I had on
my face for several months completely disappeared. After three months of acupuncture
and herbs, I became pregnant.
I attribute my ultimate success in getting pregnant to the acupuncture and herbs
administered by Dr. Ye. My family is grateful for his help.
Treatment received from Dr. Ye for hepatitis C has proved helpful. The numbers of virus that go
along with the disease have consistently decreased over a two-year period. My energy has
remained normal. This improvement required consistent adherence to the diet, medication, and
treatment regime prescribed. Thanks to Dr. Ye!
Thank you for all you have done for me. That is why it is a pleasure to send you this
I was experiencing the symptoms of migraine, radical mood swings, and projectile vomiting
every month with menses. The many medical doctors I had seen (with fancy health
insurance) could find no way of helping me. I suffered with these symptoms about 3-5 days a
month for several years in my 40s, and they were increasing in intensity. After an extreme
bout, leaving me weak and drained, I found Dr. Ye. What a blessing!
He immediately identified the problem and started treatments, after which time my symptoms
never returned. I have continued the treatments with Dr. Ye and my hormones have
balanced beautifully and I have increased energy. It is wonderful to feel great and greet
each day with joy. I am sailing through menopause. I am extremely grateful for the peace
and renewed vigor that Dr. Ye has helped restore to my life.
I started treatments with Dr. Ye over a year ago to address sinusitis, allergies and asthma
problems I have had for many years. I have had acute bouts of asthma since I was 10 years old –
occasionally resulting in hospitalization. These became more infrequent as I grew older, until in
my mid-20s I required nothing more than an inhaler about 4 times a year. However, the frequency
of allergic reactions and items to which I was allergic continued to grow. Traditional allergy
desensitization therapy did not work. The damage from the allergies to my sinuses resulted in
acute sinusitis and increasingly frequent antibiotic treatments starting in my 30s. At 35 I had sinus
surgery to remove scar tissue and improve drainage. Since that time I have been on a non-
traditional allergy therapy called “neutralization” which brought most of my allergies under
control. This also resulted in a reduction of the number of sinusitis attacks requiring antibiotics to
only once a year. For 10 years, this was the status quo.
About 3 years ago I began getting colds more frequently, as well as saw an increase in allergic
reactions and sinusitis requiring treatment and most disturbingly, an increase in asthma attacks. I
was also getting more and more tired – my energy almost completed drained. By the time I went
to Dr Ye, I was using the inhaler once a month and was up to 3 sinus infections a year. During
the first 6 months, Dr. Ye worked to build my body’s own defenses and strengthens my lungs.
These months were up and down as he was battling a whole series of issues that were driving
down my body’s resistance to disease. For the next 6 months until now, I have had only one sinus
infection – which resolved itself with help of herbs Dr Ye prescribed, I’ve needed my inhaler on
only 2 occasions, and I haven’t had a cold. The combination of acupuncture and oriental
medicine therapy has worked wonders.

Dr. Ye, You started to treat me for my vertigo in
Oct. of 2002. I had
the problem from Feb. of 2002 and had been
treated with a very good group
of MDs from the Lovelace group but they could
not cure my problem. My primary
care MD Peter Wong suggested acupnucture
after many tests at Lovelace. Since
Oct. of 2002 I have not had any episodes of
vertigo and of course you helped
my shoulders as well so I now play tennis 2 to 3
times a week without pain.
I was diagnosed with hepatitis C two years ago. Initially
The viral load, enzyme levels and symptomatic fatigue
were highly unfavorable. Thankfully, after receiving
treatment from Dr.Ye, for close to 2 years, I have
experienced consistent progress and now have my life
Age: 46 and Pregnant!
At 43 years of age I became pregnant and suffered a
miscarriage. I had a hard time getting over this loss and
tried, desperately, to get pregnant again but was not
successful. Not long before turning 45, I decided to seek
professional help at the Southwest Acupuncture College
where I was referred to Dr. Qijian Ye. Dr. Ye had a
positive attitude about my chances of conceiving, despite
the fact that it’s much harder for women in their forties to
become pregnant. As part of my search, I also saw an
infertility specialist, who is an M.D. He was not optimistic
and told me that the odds of my conceiving naturally
were one in a million. The infertility doctor recommended
in-vitro fertilization, which he said that would give me a
one in two hundred thousand chance of getting pregnant
with my own egg. He suggested trying once with my own egg and then, if necessary, using
a donor egg. The cost for this process was extremely high and the odds extremely low. I
decided against using the in-vitro options and chose to stick with Dr. Ye. After considering
my personal history, Dr. Ye remained positive and supportive, encouraging me to continue
trying natural methods of conception. With my 46th birthday just one week away, love and
behold, I got pregnant, NATURALLY. Acupuncture and Dr. Ye are amazing! I continue to
receive acupuncture treatments to sustain the pregnancy and relieve nausea and fatigue.
Thank you Dr. Ye!
