After suffering for over 20 years with asthma and allergies and using serious prescription medication to control both, I was looking for a more natural alternative to provide relief.
In addition to my existing health issues, I was also diagnosed with a painful bladder disease called Interstitial Cystitis in 2009 after a year of painful flare-ups. This condition required lifelong medication as well as other painful treatments. The medication that I was taking was causing me to be dizzy and my hair was falling out.
I found East-West Wellness Center and wondered if I could get relief from my conditions a more natural way.
Happily, after six months of diet changes, natural supplements, and acupuncture, I was medication-free for the first time in my life and I feel better than ever!
My father is 83 years old. He has been battling bladder cancer for several years. In the fall of 2009, the doctors recommended radiation and chemotherapy. He was very weak and frail and we were worried that the treatments would be too hard on him. We came to East-West Wellness Center for help. Veronica started by balancing his immune system. Then treated him with NAET ( Nambudripad allergy elimination techniques) for potential side effects of radiation and the chemotherapy he was being given. She suggested the nutritional program to support his healthy cells during the therapy and to support the blood during these treatments. She also treated him with NET (Neuro-emotional Technique) for emotional stress, sadness, and depression. To our amazement and joy, my father went through the radiation/chemo treatment with practically no nausea and very little fatigue, unlike the previous treatments that he had. He actually looked stronger and had more energy by the end of his treatments and was well enough to travel to Florida for the winter a few weeks after his last treatment.
Veronica, my entire family thanks you for what you have given us. We want others to know, there is hope.
Again, thank you so very much.

I have struggled all of my life with severe allergies and asthma. I have been in abdominal distress for over 15 years now. I had emergency surgery to have my gallbladder removed in 1996. I was never informed that I needed to drastically change my diet or I would suffer. Over the years, I have struggled with severe bloating, gastric reflux, weight gain and overall feeling ill. For the last few years, I have had several stomach procedures to help relieve intense nausea and pain in my abdomen. These procedures and medications provided little relief.
When I first came to East-West Wellness Center, I was desperate to get through an hour without feeling so poorly. Veronica took a detailed history to really understand the condition of my poor physical health. She met with me and began assessing my emotional health too. She developed a nutritional program specific to my needs and balanced my body with acupuncture weekly. I followed her advice carefully. I know now that I cannot live without Cholachol, my gallbladder replacement pill. I am very happy to say that after just 9 visits, I feel like a new person. I have lost 14 pounds, have more energy and am reminded what it feels like to feel good again. The old sparkle is coming back into my eyes. Each visit is an education to me. Veronica’s knowledge of anatomy, nutrition, herbal remedies and keen intuition make her a powerful healing consultant.
For the first time in my life, I was able to clear a sinus infection using the nutritional supplements she suggested. It has taken many years for my body to be so unhealthy. I look forward to continuing my work with Veronica to keep feeling better and better. I have recommended East-West Wellness Center to over a dozen people as I want them to experience the success that I have!
I came to Veronica’s office for the emotional issues that I have been struggling with all my life. NET has been completely life-changing! The treatments have allowed me access to the deep emotional pain that would not have been possible otherwise. I am now free from the burdens of my past and can now live without struggling with anxiety and depression. I have seen drastic improvements in my personal and professional relationships and I know these changes are effects from my NET treatments with Veronica!
I am 9 weeks pregnant and I had severe nausea for the last few days. I vomited every day and could not eat a normal size meal. Veronica, you saved my life!! The supplements have worked! I am not nauseous anymore. I don’t know what I would do without you! Thank you s-o-o-o much!
I was referred to the East-West Wellness Center by the orthopedic physician for the severe unrelieved low back pain that I was experiencing after the auto-accident in early 2009. After medical diagnoses and opinions from three orthopedic practices and undergoing the barrage of tests and procedures, the orthopedic specialists had no answer as to how to resolve my pain. The third orthopedic doctor suggested the East-West Wellness Center with their approach to healing. I was skeptical, to say the least, but after more than a year of constant back and leg pain, I was willing to try anything. After only a couple of treatments my pain has finally subsided and after a few more treatments, my pain decreased to occasional, mild one, ( I couldn’t even lightly touch my low back before I came to Veronica’s office). Veronica has provided the only therapy that has given me relief from the extreme sacral area pain that I have lived with for over a year! Had it not been for the therapies that she has done, I would have not have the abilities I now have, and I would still be in severe pain. I can move now, I can stand during long meetings without pain and my energy has improved tremendously. East-West Wellness Center has given me the quality of life that I was lacking. I only wish that I would find this Center earlier, than I wouldn’t have suffered for so long. I will continue to come to the East-West Wellness Center to maintain my health in a balanced state and be free of pain. I like feeling good!
I began seeing Veronica Bolhovitinova in the fall of 2004 when I began suffering from severe and constant bleeding from peri-menopause. I had seen my gynecologist for several months about these symptoms and had been taking hormones to help control the problem. While on the medication the bleeding did not stop and I was on edge 24 hours a day. I became surly and did not feel like myself. I had heard that acupuncture could help the symptoms of menopause so I made an appointment with Veronica.
The treatments were generally painless and very relaxing. I was amazed at how well I felt and how much Veronica listened and questioned all my symptoms. She wanted to know my whole health situation. I was initially treated two times per week but then changed to once a week sessions. Within a couple of months, my bleeding had “normalized” reducing overall.
Acupuncture therapy undoubtedly did help my body make the transition. I had my last period in January of 2007. In the months before that, I was even-natured, had no night-sweats and was not focused on menopause at all. It was a beautiful transition to my body and not the struggle that it had been before I came to acupuncture.
Part of my hormonal issues since my twenties were migraine headaches associated with my period. The headaches could last up to five days. I had MRI’s and many other tests to determine the cause of the headaches and had taken Imitrex for years to help control them. The medication affected my heart rate and made me unable to function.
As Veronica treated the menopause, she also focused on the headaches which started to wane and shortly had gone as a whole. This therapy has changed my life in so many ways!
During this time, in an attempt to treat my whole body, Veronica treated me for planter fasciatis, a painful condition in the feet where the fascia is inflamed. Walking, particularly after any rest, is painful as if walking on glass. After three treatments by Veronica, my symptoms were gone and have not returned for almost 2 ½ years.
Over the years, I have had other issues arise like knee pain, sinus problems, teeth pain and a few other things. Veronica has treated these issues with professionalism and care. Acupuncture has truly changed my life and made it so much easier to live. I recommend it to anyone with menopause, headache or basically any health issue.
I began seeing Veronica in September of 2010. I came to her a complete mess. I had been diagnosed with IBS, acid reflux, high blood pressure, migraines, peri-menopause and many allergies by various doctors. I was referred to her because I was in peri-menopause and had been told that I was not a candidate for hormone treatments.
Veronica took her time and listened to my symptoms and systematically began to work on me one issue at a time. My biggest quality of life issue was with the IBS. She began the acupuncture treatments with supplemental support. I saw her every week for several months. I saw SUBSTANTIAL relief from my IBS symptoms within two weeks. This alone changed my quality of life significantly!
She provided supplements with vitamins and minerals that I was missing in my diet. I stopped craving the amount of sugar and carbs that I had prior to treatments. As I began to feel better, I was able to lose 20 pounds. My blood pressure was lowered and my acid reflux and IBS improved.
I have always had bad seasonal allergies. This is the first spring season I have been able to work in my yard for many years. My neighbor even asked me what I was doing out because she knew of my allergy issues. She couldn’t believe I was able to function without swelling up!
Although some of my perimenopausal symptoms continue, they have been improved. I don’t have the hot flashes as I did previously. I have more energy than I did and I am able to function much better than I did before I began seeing her. We continue to work on this aspect of my problem. Acupuncture provides such a calming flow thru the body it is hard to explain. I am always relaxed after seeing Veronica.
Veronica is truly a healing force and a skilled practitioner. I feel blessed to have been able to meet her and work with her.
