I was licensed in 1983. I use acupuncture, herbal and functional medicine for thyroid, adrenal and autoimmune issues like Hashimoto's. These are currently at epidemic levels. My website AlternativeThyroidTherapy.com describes this aspect of my practice. I've learned that most people with thyroid or autoimmune issues have had long-term stress and a tendency to get stuck in hyper-vigilance, fight, flight, or freeze. So I also work with the effects of trauma, especially ongoing early childhood distress, on the nervous system. This underlies many chronic diseases and is often missed by health care providers. LelaCCarney.com describes my combination approach. I believe in good health education: HealthInOurOwnHands.info is my web resource site for staying or getting healthy in this challenging world. Find the best self-care information I've gathered in my 26 years of practice. Please see SantaCruzAcupuncture.com for my qualifications. I hope you find this information useful.
