Many patients ask me...
"How did you get into Chinese Medicine?” Well, it all began back in 2002 when my mother ended up in the hospital with two respiratory failures and Doctors not knowing the cause. Every day for 5 months, I would visit my mom in the hospital, during which time I saw a countless number of people enter the hospital in need of help. This experience along with the frustration, confusion and anger of many unanswered questions concerning my mom’s condition became overwhelming.
I started to learn more about a preventive lifestyle, nutrition, supplements and alternative medicine. I even enrolled in organic raw cooking classes. One day I was introduced to Traditional Chinese Medicine by the son of a Naturopathic Doctor. Eager to know more, I hopped on a plane to Miami to visit the Acupuncture Massage College which I immediately became fascinated with. It was love at first sight and I went for it! Learning both Western and Eastern Medicine in school finally gave me the answers to to my mom’s health scare.
This entire experience has inspired me to help and heal many patients and become a clinician and entrepreneur driven by passion for what I do. I opened DeJongh Acupuncture Clinic in 2009 treating a variety of conditions. There was one condition that through time and good results, I found profound and deeply rewarding: Fertility... Through my years of treating Male and Female Fertility cases, I have created a systematic approach to finding the missing piece to what is hindering conception. I have also made the clinic’s core principle focused on creating a personalized plan for each individual that promotes a healthier and balanced body. In Chinese medicine philosophy, it is taught that one must “regulate the cycle” for conception to occur.
Every patient I see has a unique story, and every unique story has a path. My goal is to join you along this path and help you build the family you dream of.
