Arthritis

"The price for the Celebrex was $150 per month. I forget that my movements were restricted by my aches and pains. Iím off my medication. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!"

- Geri Maestas, Ocean Hills, CA

"I suffered a lot of pain all over my body. The doctor told me I had arthritis all over my body. This pain also ran down to the bottom into both of my feet. I was having a hard time walking. I met Dr. Meggin Sullivan. She began to treat me with acupuncture. Now, the way I feel is incredible. I can tell you that the pain has reduced tremendously. I can walk, turn my head left and right. The pain in the bottom of my feet is almost gone in 2 months. Thanks Dr. Meggin Sullivan."

- Carmen Marquez, Escondido, CA

Cardiac

CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE

"The Doctors said I had to have cardiac stints. After many complications, I was told that I would have to be on Amiodarone for the rest of my life. It is very toxic, and began destroying my lungs. Before taking it, my lung capacity was at 18. After a year on Amiodarone my lung capacity was down to 11. I was horribly sick. I couldn't breath. They said not to worry; I would just have to go on oxygen for the rest of my life. They said I couldn't get off it, no matter what. I knew I would die. I went to see Dr. Meggin Sullivan. She began working her magic. After a very short time, I began to feel better. I talked to my Doctor about getting off the Amiodarone. He said it couldnít be done. But, I did. I cut the dose in half and then several months later I cut it in half again. Then my doctor told me that I might as well stop taking it. He said that a quarter dose wouldnít do any good. Iíve been off for over a year. All my numbers have come back. I can hike and breathe again. I havenít felt this good in years!"

 

CARDIAC STINTS

"I began seeing Dr. Sullivan 10 year ago. I had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. The number got down to 20. They said: "Below 20, your dead." They also said I had angina, and a whole lot of other fancy stuff. My heart skipped like a flat stone over a smooth lake. Today, they say that number is back up to 36. I play golf twice a week. I can't remember the last time that heart skipped. My cardiologist said: "You're 88 going on 70." And, I feel great!"

Cholesterol

"My mom had been trying to get healthy for a while. With Megginís help, she lowered her cholesterol."

- Tami Feit, Carlsbad, CA

Cosmetics

"Dr. Sullivan is amazing! I underwent an initial treatment of 10 sessions in 5 weeks. By the third week there were noticeable changes, and friends were asking what I was doing. I have improved muscle tone (less sagging) in the face and neck, improved the tone and quality of skin and reduced puffiness. Fine lines have filled in, and deeper lines greatly improved. One of the most dramatic results was obtained in reducing the scar tissue on my jaw. It is greatly reduced and barely perceptible. My facial coloring has improved, and I feel younger, calmer and less worn looking.

I am in my early 60ís and felt the need for personal physical enhancement. After consulting with plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and laser M.D.s, I elected to seek treatment from Dr. Sullivan. This decision was not based solely on financial concerns, however, the cost of the invasive, aggressive treatments ranged from $8,000.00 to $25,000.00, with long recovery periods and no promise of success. I have friends that have had less than satisfactory results.

The treatments are relaxing including the healing balms, mask and towels. The needles are fine, and not painful. The overall experience parallels any spa treatment that Iíve had, and provides a wonderful opportunity for meditation or de-stressing.

I am amazed with the results, and have to confess that my lifestyle has contributed to the aging process. Results will differ with each individual, but Iíve got years of ďmileageĒ and ďdeferred maintenanceĒ to deal with. Iíve started my second package of treatments and know that I may need monthly tune-ups.

Dr. Sullivan is engaging, knowledgeable, holds the highest credentials, and has incredible results in all aspects of her practice. She is a dedicated doctor that makes her patients feel that their opinions matter."

- Jo Anne Cech

Diabetes

"My doctor gave me a diagnosis of Pre-Diabetes. I was watching my diet and still my blood sugar was 118. I then went to see Dr. Sullivan. With her treatments my blood sugar dropped to 96. I did nothing else differently. My doctor says I am no longer pre-diabetic."

- Karen Campbell, Vista CA.

I began seeing Dr. Sullivan for a wrist problem. During the time of treatment, I noticed my blood sugar came down. It was in the low 200's, now it's in the low 170's. I've been working on it for a while and it stayed in the 200 ranges. All of a sudden it's dropping. I did nothing else different, except Dr. Sullivan's treatments.

- Heriberto Maldonado

Dementia/Alzheimer's

"My husband was diagnosed with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Parkinson's and Dementia. They often used the term Alzheimer's. The 86 missions he flew in the South Pacific as a Marine Fighter Pilot in WWII, Bougainville, Guadalcanal and Manila left him with many scars. He would have times of incoherent ravings during the hallucinations from the PTSD. Besides that, he hadn't spoken in five months. After two treatments with Dr. Meggin Sullivan, he was speaking in full appropriate sentences. The hallucinations continued, but the lucid moments became more clear and lasted longer. My dear husband could carry on a conversation. He could remember stories of the past and laugh. A surgical accident at the local hospital cut short his recovery. But for several months I had him back and I'm so very grateful Dr. Sullivan."

- Brigit Clarke-Smith

Eczema/Psoriasis

"The staff and patients at Oriental Medical Arts are some of the friendliest and courteous people I have ever met. I have been a patient of Dr. Sullivan's for over 3 years. She is through with all of her patients and takes the time with each person so you get the best experience every time you are there. Over the years I have gotten to know her and establish what I know will be a long lasting friendship, she is the type of person to go above and beyond to make sure you are strong, healthy, and at your best health. I highly recommend Dr. Meggin Sullivan, it will be well worth your time and money by the time you go searching around everywhere else, you save all time, energy, hope, and money by just visiting with her. Trust me she is the kindest person you will ever meet, and I liked that right off the bat she didn't try to "heal me with positive thinking" she looked at me and said "I will try my very best, to find out how to help you."

- Stephanie Pham, Ternecula, CA

"In October of last year, I became quite ill. The preliminary diagnosis from two different dermatologists whom I saw was acute dermatitis also known as eczema. I constantly felt like I was on fire and the skin was being burned over and over and I had scabs everywhere from scratching because my whole body itched. At night, I couldn't sleep well because it felt as if I was being pricked from the inside by needles all over. And my nerves were so frayed - I felt like I was buzzing on the inside and couldn't calm down. And I got very very depressed. I went back to yet another dermatologist for a third opinion and he sent me to the allergist who did all sorts of tests. The end result diagnosis is the same, acute dermatitis but with an additional diagnosis of allergies to just about everything - dust, pollens, weeds, trees, dander, foods. I was given more antihistamines, a new topical cream and advice on how to clean up my living space and make it more dust free and I was also told there is no cure for this; you just have to manage it for the rest of your life and live through the rough patches. At about the same time as receiving these above allergic diagnoses, Meggin Sullivan, seeing what suffering I was going through, offered to help and she felt confident that she could. She said she had had very good, if not excellent, results with those who suffer from similar chronic skin and auto-immune conditions and because I was so exhausted and drained by these past 6 months of physical torture, I was happy to try her remedies. Within three days of ingesting this herbal remedy, I felt significantly better. I had more energy, and my skin started to cool down around my neck and face and I could even feel a softness in the skin that hadn't been there in a very long time.Having been used to feeling terrible for so long, I was a little tentative about feeling better, fearing a relapse. But my condition has been steadily improving. I am a bit weak and have to go slow in recovery but I've noticed small changes like wanting to get back to my artistic endeavors.

I am so happy about this treatment and so grateful for Meggin's care and insights. She is very thorough and really takes time with me. She listens carefully and responds by making up the remedy exactly right for me ands make any necessary changes in the treatments to adapt to my improving condition. It's almost too amazing to comprehend."

"Want to look 20 years younger? Consider an acupuncture face lift (aka ďfacial rejuvenation), with Dr. Meggin Sullivan! Not only is her office relaxing and peaceful, but so is the good doctorís pleasant, intelligent personality. When I left Dr. Sullivan after my first face lift, my face, too, looked relaxed, peaceful and young. But the big bonus came from my neck and collar, which had a very grainy appearance from Sun damage and a bout with skin cancer."

- Nancy Ava Miller, Edgewood, New Mexico

"Meggin's a gifted healer and I've had friends that have gotten great results. This weekend I had an incredible acupuncture facial...that's right acupuncture facial. Instead of toxic chemicals being injected or applied I went for a healing treatment. The results are amazing. My skin is glowing and I swear I can see a difference already in some of the light lines in my face. I can't wait for the next treatment."

- Nancy Cech, San Francisco, California

Fibromyalgia

"I started seeing Dr. Sullivan for a number of complaints. It was a long list.†At first I never mentioned the fibromyalgia.†But as the trigger finger, plantar fasciitis, sciatica and other aches and tendonitis went away, I realized so had the fibromyalgia. I was very skeptical when I first started seeing Dr. Sullivan, but Iím a believer now. She is truly a miracle worker."

- Rosemary Duran, Vista, California

"My doctor gave me a diagnosis of fibromyalgia along with many other conditions.††† Thanks to Dr. Meggin Sullivan, I believe I no longer have it.†† I still have some knee and back pain and with a treatment from Dr. Sullivan that also goes away.† That relentless fibromyalgia pain is a thing of the past."

- Marge Swacker, Oceanside, California

Gall and Kidney Stones

GALL STONES

"The doctor told me the pain was from grease and stones in my gall bladder. The pain was excruciating. She had to wait for an approval to do an ultrasound. While I waited, I went to see Dr. Meggin Sullivan. She had helped me before. The pain was so bad. I hadnít slept in days. She gave me herbs. That night I slept. The next day the pain was so much less- just pressure. Now itís all gone."

- Carmen Marquez, Escondido, California

KIDNEY STONES

"This year I found out I had a 6mm fibroid cyst on my ovary and a 13 mm kidney stone. Doctors said I would need to have both ovaries, my tubes and my uterus removed because of the cyst. I also needed to have surgery to remove the kidney stone which could cause damage to the kidney. Obviously I did not want to do either surgeries. Dr. Sullivan treated me with Acupuncture and Herbs for both conditions. Within 2 weeks the cyst was completely gone and a few months later the stone was reduced to half the size. I have seen Dr. Sullivan for several years for a life long condition that causes severe migraines and she has greatly helped that condition as well. I am so thankful for Dr. Sullivan and for her incredibly artful skill as a Oriental Medical Physician. "

- Allie Burgess, San Diego, California

Glaucoma

"Iíve been having problems with my eye pressure for the past several years In December, my eyes were checked and my left eye pressure went up to 24mmHG. By June the pressure in my left eye was up to 35mm Hg. After that I went to see Dr. Sullivan. Four weeks later, the pressure in that eye fell to 18mm Hg."

- Gwen Laidlaw, Ocean Hills, California

Headaches/Migraines

- Kathy R., Oceanside, California

"We had trouble conceiving. After three years, we finally did. In month seven I began cramping and having low back pain. Constant mild to moderate cramping and low back pain. It kept me awake all night. As soon as I would walk or stand, it would get worse. It was so frightening. I heard about Dr. Sullivan from a friend. She came in on her day off to see me. I donít know what she did, but after that treatment, it all stopped. I went full term and have a beautiful baby boy. Thank you."

- Julie Martinez, Fallbrook, California

Knees - Baker's Cyst

Pain Management

- Lillian Westcott, Ocean Hills, California

Today, the plantar fasciitis is gone. The trigger finger is much better. I can now make a fist without my fingers locking. The tendonitis and sciatica pain is manageable. But the best thing is that I have never felt better. I didnít realize how much stress I was under till now. Dr. Sullivan has given me a new feeling of peace. I was very skeptical when I first started seeing Dr. Sullivan, but Iím a believer now. She is truly a miracle worker.. "

HIP

" I was having health problems that no doctor could diagnose or help with the pain. Within a short amount of time, Meggin figured out exactly what was wrong and was helping take the pain away from my hip. I brag to anyone and everyone on how much she helped me. If I am ever sick, I can go to her and by the next day, I am fully back to my normal self.. "

- Tami Feit, Carlsbad, California

NECK AND BACK

" An injury to my neck resulted in muscles issues in my back changed my way of life. I began seeing chiropractors, three to be exact. With no relief, I then moved on to a great orthopedic surgeon. He recommended physical therapy and then a spine specialist. My spine specialist referred me to Meggin Sullivan for acupuncture. A healing began as I slowly recognized I was able to get back to the ability to move through my day without pain. After eight visits (4 weeks) I realized I had not experienced pain in several weeks.My life as I knew it was not over. Meggin gave me so much more than healing. I had hope again for my productive life to continue. Thank you so much Meggin. . "

- Sheri Harris, Vista, California

NECK

ĒDoctor Sullivan is amazing!† A couple of years ago I developed a real pain in my neck.†† I have no idea how it happened or why, but the sure result was just that.† Sore, constant pain, inability to turn my head, I couldnít sleep, spending the nights in a chair instead of bed.† I couldnít eat.† I was fading.†† As fate would have it, I practically stumbled into the hallway of Dr. Sullivanís office, by complete accident, in some painful and daze.† Standing outside her door, I felt and smelled the aromas of incense and something deep inside, intuitively, pushed me through.† To my great luck, Dr. Sullivan was able to see me right away.† Although I have never prior to that done any acupuncture, and knowing my ďoptionsĒ presented by Western doctors (surgery), I gave it a whorl.† Right after the first session, I felt a great deal of relief.† I started to feel energy flow.† A few appointments later, I was as good as new!†Ē

Rheumatoid Arthritis

"I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis. After 2 years of pharmaceuticals I was worse. They worked initially, for just a little while. Then they made me very sick. I couldn't stand up in the morning without severe knee pain. On day a friend told me to go see Dr. Sullivan. The next day (after treatment) my knee pain was gone. After a while, my foot pain, hand pain, back pain, hip pain was all gone. I was able to stop the pharmaceuticals and I actually felt better after I stopping the Methotrexate. I used to hurt so much; I couldn't work. I thought I was done for. Now, I can stand in front of a classroom for several hours and teach. I can do service calls. I can climb stairs without pain. My hands and feet no longer swell, and they don't hurt. Without these treatments, I'd probably be not working. I'd be miserable and addicted to alcohol. My wife is an M.D. and she ecstatic with the improvement. All these improvements are a result of Dr. Sullivan's treatments."

Trigeminal Neuralgia

Weight Loss

"My mom had been trying to get healthy for a while. With Meggin's help, she lowered her cholesterol, minimized her sinus headaches and gets way fewer migraines. She was thin most of her life and once she turned 45, she just kept gaining weight. She had exercised; changed eating habits etc but the weight wasn't coming off. Meggin again figured out the Ba Gua and sure enough the pounds keep melting off of her. She is much more relaxed and happier. The benefits of Meggin are endless. We are all so thankful that she has helped us."
