Cancer

Dear Dr. Craig Moskowitz, Sloan Kettering Cancer Center I am writing you this letter to thank you so very much for telling me about the ongoing study using acupuncture in curing Lymphedema. I have been going to the acupunucturist that you had recommended, Evangelina Jacobson for about three weeks now and have seen a dramatic improvement. The swelling in my hand and arm has gone down and I even managed to not wear my sleve and glove that I was to wear twenty four hours a day for the rest of my life. I believe that with Evangelina being licensed and board certified and all the other degrees behind her has made for a huge difference in my healing process. I hope that by writing this letter will help many other people who have Lymphedema to have a possible cure to look forward to. If you have any questions regarding the treatment I am receiving please call Evangelina Jacobson Dipl.L.Ac, Dipl.OM, Dipl.CH at (516-221-9267). Thank you for caring so much and for trying to heal people. Thank you, Mrs. Roseann Errico

Skin Aging

I came to you 4 months ago, vainly because I was unhappy with my aging skin. I did not want Botox . As a fitness professional I pride myself on being healthy and fit. I heard about Facial Rejuvenation through acupuncture. As we addressed that , we spoke in detail about the foods I eat, and proper hydration. You recommended that I try alkaline water. I had never heard of this. I took in what you said, then did some more research and found the benefits of my body being alkaline .  My body was very acidic. We put a strain on our body to maintain a healthy PH balance, when we eat refined foods, dairy, sodas, sweets ,chips etc. Although I ate fruits , vegetables, fish and drank lots of water, when Itested my PH in the morning I was horrified. So I decided this was an easy way to balance my body, flush out the toxins and hydrate more efficiently. I have been drinking the alkaline water for about  two months now, and am amazed that my body is  alkaline all day !  I feel better and more hydrated.  When I eat certain foods , I see how that changes the acidity in my body. Drinking alkaline water helps get my PHto where it should be.
Although it is more costly than bottled water, the benefits out weigh the cost.  I bought the pitcher, which has a filter and I add bottled water , my tap water is for watering plants!  It is an investment in health, and you can't  put a price tag on your health.

Bell`s Palsy

I found Evangeline Jacobson's practice while searching the internet for alternative treatment options for Bell's Palsy on the left side of my face back in March of 2010. When I first realized that something was wrong, I went to see my primary care physician. He immediately told me that it was Bell's Palsy, prescribed a steroid for me and gave me some facial exercises to do. After the seven day steroid series was completed I saw no improvement in my face whatsoever. As a matter of fact I saw myself getting worse. That is when I decided to seek alternate treatment. Mrs. Jacobson was very genuine in her approach to my ailment. She told me that she had treated Bell's Palsy in the past and that she was sure that she could help me overcome it, although she did specify that it would take some time. She began to treat me by flushing out the heat from my face through my feet, which I found strange since my issue was in my face, but I went with it. And I am so glad that I stuck with it. Within ten days of my first acupuncture session I began to see improvement. By the end of the third week I was completely cured. I was ecstatic with the therapy and obviously with the end result.Approximately a month after being cured of my left side Bell's Palsy, I woke up one morning with a familiar "numb" feeling on the right side of me face. I again went to go see my primary care physician who then prescribed the same steroid treatment but this time wanted me to go see a neurologist because he said that it was rare that I would get this twice in such close succession. By that afternoon the numbness had already developed into a droopy look to the right side of my face. I immediately called Evangeline's office to schedule an appointment. I began my acupuncture treatments with her the following day, and since I did not wait the to start acupuncture like I did the first time, I was completely cured again within the first three weeks, rather than three weeks after my seven day steroid treatment. Evangeline is a fantastic acupuncturist, and her approach is calming, soothing and stress-free. I would highly recommend her to any and everyone who is seeking an alternative to the typical medical approach. Thank you Evangeline! Marc Lara

QUITTING SMOKING

I met Evangelina Jacobson as a private patient on Long Island to help me stop smoking.
She used skills as a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese Herbologist to cure me completely from my addiction to cigarette smoking. I had been smoking cigarettes for over sixteen years, since I was a teenager, and I had previously tried several methods to stop smoking. I enthusiastically recommend her professional services and compassionate personality to anyone who wishes to end their addiction to nicotine in a safe and painless program.

Marilia Sheinberg

Her name is Evangelina Jacobson which means caring, devoted, diligent and just plain nice. She can help you with any of your ills- health, addictions, etc. She will work with you until the end of your addiction, and even after.

Thank you, Eva.

BELL’S PALSY

Being the director of a counseling center for about two decades, I am well aware of what it takes to help and relate to people who are in need of assistance.

On several occasions over the years, Eva has helped me to overcome various ailments/problems, including shingles and quite recently Bell’s Palsy. Her knowledge and focus on healing has impressed me very much, and I made a rapid, complete recovery each time I have seen her, regardless of what malady I was suffering with.

She is dedicated to helping the healing process occur as fast as possible, and is friendly and personable.

Yours truly,
Neil Henry, MSW, CSW, BCD

STROKE RECOVERY

One visit to Acupuncture Yin Yang was more beneficial to me than 60 visits to Physical Therapy. I’m getting more from her than from any other treatments. She is a very caring person.

Fondly yours,

MENSTRUAL CRAMPS

I first came to see Eva for back pain, but she is now treating me for acne, menstrual cramps and bloating, muscular tension and stress. She provides an individualized treatment for her patients and in turn creates a holistic environment and comfort zone. I can come for treatments when I am in desperate pain, or even if I just need to relax from every day anxieties. Eva has also provided individualized Chinese herbal tablets for me to increase the benefits of my treatments and daily functioning.

I have noticed a remarkable change in my daily life, and an overall of well-being. I would recommend Eva as an acupuncturist to anyone with serious pain or problem with their body and/or mind, as well as to others that are in search of overall sense of feeling well from day to day.

SCIATICA PAIN

For almost six months, I suffered from muscle spasms, tenderness, and pain which involved the lower part of my body from the sacral area down to below the knee. The problem started as sciatica; the acute sciatica pain subsided, but left me with persistent muscular discomfort. I first visited a chiropractor and this treatment helped with the acute sciatica, but did nothing to relieve the underlying muscular problem. Subsequent to this, I was treated by an MD who specializes in the management of chronic pain. He gave me trigger point injections with Lidocaine/Decadron, and he also prescribed physical therapy (heat, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, massage, and exercise). These modalities resulted in some improvement, but I still was not where I felt I needed to be. Then, even though I was somewhat skeptical of the benefits, I tried acupuncture by Evangelina Jacobson. Within a short while I experienced a marked improvement in discomfort, to the point where I am without discomfort most of the time and able to do so much more than I have been able to for months! Mrs. Jacobson is professional and thorough in her approach, and I feel that my recent improvement can be attributed to her treatment of my problem with acupuncture as well as with heat d, electro-acupuncture. Thank you, Mrs. Jacobson, for your help!!

POST SURGICAL PAIN DUE TO SCAR TISSUE

Having had back surgery about 7 months ago, and still having to rely on medications for pain relief, I sought out the help of Eva. One day in September, I was in so much pain that I found Acupuncture Yin Yang in the phone book. Eva scheduled me right away. I was a slight bit reserved about having these treatments as I had had acupuncture before, but my experience has changed the way I look at acupuncture.

I have been seeing Eva for acupuncture treatments for two months now and have notice a remarkable change in my pain. I do not need to take my prescribed medications on most days now, nor do I feel the muscular tension or throbbing pains in my back and legs. Not only have I noticed a change in my pain levels, I now have a new sense of well-being. My entire body just feels better

Although I am no where near understanding how the treatments work, I just know that they do. Each time I go for a treatment I feel so relaxed and almost euphoric, but of course in a more natural sense than the medications could ever provide. Eva makes sure that I am as comfortable as possible while being treated. She looks after her patients as a mother looks after her child, with deep concern for how I am feeling each and every time I see her.

PAIN DUE CAR ACCIDENT

I was undergoing massage therapy for the treatment of injuries I sustained in a car accident. There wasn’t a single day that I did not have pain in my back, neck, hips, arms and legs. At one point the inflammation in my lower back was so bad, I could not even get up our chair or bed without someone lifting me.
Even the chiropractor I was seeing was at a loss. My massage therapist recommended acupuncture treatments and gave me Eva’s number.

Eva’s treatments were the best thing I could have done. She was able to help with the inflammation in my lower back, the muscle spasms that were in almost every part of my body and help me regain a semblance of a normal life. As a Certified Chinese Herbologist she was able to provide me with additional care which helped in many ways including helping me relax and to sleep. She has been the kindest, most patient person. Her professionalism and her caring are unmatched. No one was able to help me with the physical problems I was having the way she was. Words can not express how grateful I am to her.
Trish Connolly

 

On MAY 2, 2003 I sustained a significant car accident leaving me with severe muscle trauma which prevented mostly any movement in my entire body. Initially, I could barely lift myself out of bed. The medical doctors prescribed medications which offered minimum relief for the pain, rendered me an exhausted “zombie” as well as gave me no movement. After one month I was desperate for any form of treatment which would help and decided to try acupuncture.

Through the Yellow Pages I was fortunate to find Eva. She immediately squeezed me in and with her caring, gentle disposition I was introduced to acupuncture and electrical stimulation.

She took her time with a thorough examination, testing movements and muscles for a customized treatment. After this first visit, I was able to walk and move with more ease as well as the pain subsided a little. Every visit to Eva is an adventure. First questions and exam to decide how the treatment will proceed that day and then we begin.

It is obvious Eva enjoys her profession as she is always in good spirits, sincere and makes me feel special. I fell fortunate to have found her as has shortened the road to my good health and helped me through a very difficult time in my life. I will always be grateful.

Sincerely,
Ann Tomasino


CANCER

I became a patient of Evangelina Jacobson in February 2001. I had been misdiagnosed for over one year with cancer and when it was time for treatment I chose to do only radiation and sought out an acupuncturist.

When I began radiation Eva began to treat me with acupuncture for pain, and to build up my immune system. She continued to treat me during my radiation. The oncologist could not believe how well I did and attributed it to the acupuncture as I did not suffer any side effects of radiation.

Eva is not only an excellent, well-qualified acupuncturist, but her treatments go way beyond that. She really cares about her patients and their well being. She always goes the extra mile because of her caring, loving nature. Eva has been an integral part of my healing and I owe my life to her. She really cares about the person she is treating and their physical, emotional, and spiritual health.

I would recommend Eva to anyone. She is a blessing and is so qualified in the healing arts. I will always be indebted to her for bringing me through a very difficult time in my life. If there were more people like Eva, the world would be a better place.

ELEVATED LIVER ENZYMES

I had my gall bladder removed on an emergency basis at massapequa Hospital, Manhasset, New York almost two years ago and had suffered complications of jaundice and elevated liver enzyme levels. After I became a patient of Evangelina Jacobson her skills as a license Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbologist helped me significantly to cure my disease problems.

Evangelina Jacobson was also very helpful in a problem I had loss of libido and her expertise as a Chinese Herbologist also help me significantly. I would recommend her skills unconditionally to prospective patients.

FREQUENCY OF URINATION

I’ve known Eva personally for many years and have known her to be a very giving and trustworthy individual. I began seeing her for acupuncture treatments in November of 2000. At the time I was suffering from a variety of symptoms such as urinary frequency and fatigue. I went to Eva because I trusted her and because allopathic doctors said that I was healthy even though I didn’t feel healthy. After receiving acupuncture and taking herbs for only a short time I notice marked improvement in the way I felt. I had more energy and could sleep through the night without having to urinate. I enjoy going to Eva for treatments. She is very generous with her time and always explains everything with great detail when I have a question.

ASTHMA

I developed asthma at the age of 25. For 20 years, despite avoiding irritants, the practice of vigorous exercise, and a healthy lifestyle, I depended upon my inhaler for evening relief and episodes induced by cold, chemicals, or sustained running. After 3 months of treatment with Chinese herbs, I was amazed to find that I was able to sleep through the night without my inhaler. This small victory was only the beginning, as I haven't needed the inhaler for the past 2 years, although my exposure to pets, weather, etc., remains the same. My life has totally changed with this weight literally lifted off my chest. Thank you Dr. Eva!


ALLERGIES

I’ve known Eva personally for many years and have known her to be a very giving and trustworthy individual.
I January of 2001, I had a horrible allergic reaction to something and became quite edematous, especially in the face. Medications weren’t helping so I called Eva. She graciously fit me into her very busy schedule. After the acupuncture treatment, the swelling and itching subsided. I would recommend acupuncture to everyone; especially if they go to Eva. She’s very knowledgeable, gentle, and caring.

BREATHING DIFFICULTIES

My fiancé suggested Eva’s herbal treatments. I was having difficulty with my breathing and excess phlegm. As an Herbologist, Eva was able to give me various teas which help clear the congestion I had which in turn solved my breathing problem. And as an extra bonus, my fiancé says that while I was under Evas’s care, her teas stopped my snoring.


RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS

As I am a bed board arthritic who had limited use of my hands and arms, the treatments given by Eva were most effective so that I can function by myself in the use of my TV remote control, bed remote control, and cell phone. It enabled me to function on my own without always depending on somebody else for doing small things for me. It gave me a sense of independence that I have been without for quite a while. God bless Eva and her blessed needles.

ENT

When I first met Eva I had recently been diagnosed by an ENT with a viral infection in my right vestibular nerve. For about three months prior to coming to Eva I had suffered numerous symptoms including dizziness, loss of balance, difficulty in concentrating and tunnel vision. In addition, everything I looked at seemed to have a yellow tint to it. By this time I had seen several physicians and had undergone numerous tests in order to rule out certain diseases, illnesses and brain disorders. The only conclusive test was a VNG which concluded that I had a vestibular disorder known as vestibular neuritis. Upon this diagnosis, every doctor I saw and all of the research I read told me that the only remedy for vestibular neuritis was to take meclizine (which did nothing but make me tired), try physical therapy and simply let the viral infection run it’s course (which I was told could take up to two years). Being completely dissatisfied with these recommendations, I made an appointment with Eva. My first appointment lasted almost three hours and in that time I learned that Eva was genuinely concerned about my symptoms and really wanted to help me get better. I don’t remember the exact time frame (did I mention that the disorder also affected my memory?), but after about two acupuncture sessions and about a week on an herbal formula, I noticed a clear difference in my symptoms and for the first time in months, I slowly but surely started getting my life back. I was no longer confined to my apartment on the weekends and I was able to be social again, go to the gym, concentrate and start acting like myself.

The recovery was not overnight, and now after several months of going to acupuncture and taking herbal formulas, while I am still in recovery, I look back and wonder how I was ever able to even make it to work on a daily basis. I once told Eva during a treatment that she was my savior. She laughed, and I am not sure if she is aware of the important role she played, not just in my physical health, but my mental health as well. In the three months leading up to the time that I met Eva, I had become somewhat discouraged and although I am an extremely positive person, I knew that this illness had taken over my life and had the capability of making me become clinically depressed. Eva gave me hope, was genuine and really cared about how I was feeling on a daily, weekly and monthly basis. Because of Eva’s experience, education and caring bedside manner, I have a significant amount of respect for her and I offer my highest recommendations to her and her practice.
