I'm Susana Puelles, Acupuncturist and Functional Medicine Practicioner. It's my mission to help women heal their womb to make room for the important things in life!
We didn't find each other by accident.
Are you suffering every month, hating your body? Are you busy and your periods keep getting in the way of life?
Listen up! To your body, that is. Don't let it get too far gone that surgery becomes your only option. I've seen this play out thousands of times, and it's what made me devoted to integrative medicine, acupuncture, nutrition, and herbs.
I worked in conventional gynecology for years, but that all shifted when my mom had a hysterectomy after years of complaining of pelvic pain. We found out it was due to cysts and fibroids. She was always conscious about her health, but alternative medicine back then wasn't what it has come to be today.
The doctor "knew best," and as her children were grown, surgery was her best and only option.
I remember picking her up from her surgery and her doctor saying, "She's fine. I fixed it." He was my hero. Things were finally going to be better, or so I thought. At barely 40 years old, my mother entered early onset menopause. Even though she kept her ovaries, her hormones were out of control. She didn't know what had happened, and she never expressed the pain she was in.
But, I noticed. I experienced an emotionally disconnected mother who was suffering in silence. It broke my heart and pissed me off. It made me question everything. I wanted to learn what doctors and surgeons were actuallysupposed to do, and decided to become a doctor. While I was studying, I had the opportunity to be trained as a gynecological surgical assistant.
What an experience that was!
I saw things way beyond my years, and was broken down from the procedures, birth control pills, breast biopsies, hormone replacement therapy, and those charming pharma reps. It made me intuitively start searching for something different, as I felt the current solutions didn't actually help anyone. Even after surgeries, the symptoms, sadness, and frustrations continued.
It wasn't until I crashed and burned while pursuing my dream that my friend took me to her acupuncturist. It changed my life. This acupuncturist specialized in gynecology, and eventually became my mentor. The women who came to her for debilitating periods, pelvic pain, fibroids, cysts, and more were all adamant about not taking prescription meds and didn't entertain the idea of surgery.
I was conditioned to believe our hormonal flux was our burden, something we had to deal with, but there was a safe, effective option that I hadn't considered.
Fast forward from my humble beginnings to where I am now, and I have years of clinical experience in women's health, a Board Certification in Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture and Functional Medicine. I'm dedicated to women becoming active participants in their health, because hormones don't have to ruin our lives!
I combine Eastern and Western evidence-based medicine to boost mental and physical stamina to increase overall feminine and sexual vitality so that women can do the things they love.
Even with the same diagnosis, each woman's circumstances and bodies are unique--and so should their solutions!
I look forward to hearing your stories and helping you rewrite your health destiny!
