I owe Dr Marangoz a huge thank you for his skilful use of acupuncture that has enabled me to start enjoying day to day living again.
Soon after retiring in 2005 I started having extended periods of ill health. During these periods I had a very sore throat that made swallowing difficult, a croaky voice that made talking uncomfortable plus I was not able to control my asthma effectively. My asthma was so bad it made climbing stairs difficult. I had periods when I had no energy at all and even walking was difficult. My GP explained these periods were due to viral infections which only time would heal. But these periods lasted months and came all too frequently.
Then in 2010 I started getting severe abdominal pain and nausea that occurred on most days. I was prescribed pain killers which gave only limited relief. Sleep at night was almost impossible resulting in me needing exhausted ‘naps’ during the day. Sometimes I was given antibiotics but they had variable results and several caused unpleasant side effects. In May 2011 I was sent for various tests at the hospital where a diagnosis of diverticulosis (diverticulitis) was given. I was told that either pain killers or anti spasmodic medication would help but that there was no long term relief. By November 2011 I was frequently spending most of the day curled up on the sofa in pain reaching 8 or 9 out of 10. Food and many drinks revolted me. My GP’s advice was not to get depressed!
My husband then suggested that I made an appointment with Dr Marangoz as he had heard from a number of people that through acupuncture Dr Marangoz had been able to improve a range of injuries and ailments. I was not entirely convinced but was desperate for relief. Within minutes of meeting Dr Marangoz it was evident that he was a very caring practitioner who was prepared to listen attentively to my concerns and symptoms. He explained how acupuncture worked and asked if I would like to have the treatment. I can now say – thank goodness I agreed.
It took three sessions before I started to notice a lot of improvement but now after 10 sessions I feel so much better. The abdominal pain has decreased to a mere ‘niggle’. I have more energy and feel happier in myself. Family, friends and a neighbour have commented how well I look now. I have not had the virus symptoms for 3 months. I haven’t needed to take anti-spasmodic medication or any other pain relief medication for abdominal pain. My asthma is better controlled.
Dr Marangoz has a holistic approach to helping patients so I now have information about life-style changes that I can make to improve and maintain better health.
I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Marangoz, he is a real enthusiast for complimentary therapies and medicine.
