Ansgar can’t count the number of times he’s been asked why he chose acupuncture as his profession. Throughout his childhood, he suffered from severe seasonal allergies and frequent colds. His immune system was weak and he would often sneeze twenty or more times per minute, making him gasp for air. His allergies were so severe it affected his concentration and sleep patterns. He was allergic to many environmental allergens (think dust, trees, grass, weeds, pollen, cats, dogs, and even certain foods.) He visited numerous doctors and was always prescribed a list of medications. One doctor even told his family to move to California because allergen levels were lower.
Needless to say, the medications were not helpful and moving cross-country was not an option. As a last resort, his parents brought him to see a Chinese herbalist and acupuncturist. After about 10 sessions of acupuncture and Chinese Herbs, he felt a significant difference; finally something worked. He was able to breathe a breath of fresh air again.
Now, Ansgar wants to provide the same life changing healing to others by offering Chinese medicine to his community.
