Testimonials from some of Xingcong Ren's patients:

"After my son turned 2 years old, I was eager to have another child. When I last spoke with my Reproductive Endocronologist (RE), I was given the following discouraging statistics based on my age:
-I had less than a 1% chance of conceiving naturally
-80% of my eggs were chromosomally abnormal, and with each passing three months, this percentage rises by 10%.

I was originally diagnosed as having ovarian dysfunction. This was such a general diagnoses that it was hard for me to believe that I couldn't treat my infertility. I decided to pursue alternative medicine by subscribing to acupuncture treatments and Traditional Chinese Medicine. By working with Dr. Ren, I was able to:
- Maintain my FSH levels below 7.5
- Develop 9 to 11 antral follicles at each cycle, a quantity which is above average for anyone in my age group (>40). My RE advised that women in this age group usually develop 1 to 2 antral follicles on each ovary.
- Show a consistent dip and rise in my basal body temperature at each cycle. That is, I was able to show with some precision when I ovulated, followed by a steady rise in temperature during the luteal phase, which lasted approximately 14 days.

During my last consultation with my RE, I was told that my body was responding like that of a 32-year old rather a 43- year old. It was as if I had developed a youthful endocronal system. I attribute this to the work of Dr. Ren through auricular, electroacupunture, and moxibustion that were augmented with herbal teas. I believe the acupuncture and herbs were able to do the following for me:
-Improve the function of the ovaries to produce higher quality eggs. With Dr. Ren's help, I was able to release quality eggs that were capable of developing into a pregnancy.
-Regulate the hormones to produce a larger number of follicles
-Increase blood flow to the uterus and increase the thickness of the uterine lining
-Improve blood flow to the ovaries, improving ovarian response and function for more follicles, better egg production and quality. That is the main reason the RE continued to work with me through the IVF cycles.
- Strengthen the immune system/Increase energy
Overall, Dr. Ren helped enhance my reproductive health. Acupuncture and herbal treatment are an effective modality of intervention to aid in the facilitation of conception. Finally, I delivered my healthy daughter on January 29th."

"Hello Dr. Ren,
My name is Jamal Jeter. I recently spoke to my mother and she informed me that you still remember me. I had planned to write you a letter a long time ago, but time passed quicker than I expected and now it's been about 5 years. One of the main things that I always wanted to say was thank you. When I came into your office about 5 years ago, I could barely walk and had lost almost all of my strength. What had made things worse was that all of the doctors I had seen couldn't figure out what was wrong with me and had basically given up on me. The thing I remember most vividly is the first day I had seen you in my office; you immediately knew what was wrong with me and gave me a whole new sense of hope. I'm glad to say that I have been very healthy since those days, with the exception of my seasonal allergies, which are minor compared to my previous situation. Ever since that day, I have learned not to ever give up on anything I want to do in life and so far, it has paid off. I am currently a freshman at the University of Maryland and was also accepted into the Honors program. I plan to go on afterwards to medical school and get my Doctorate so that I may later do medical research that may also help people later on. I'd like to thank you for inspiring me to never give up on things I want done and also, for motivating me more to do all I can to help others."
Sincerely,
Jamal Jeter -Piscataway, NJ

"I would highly recommend acupuncture treatment to anyone who is interested in improving their life. I first became interested in acupuncture at the suggestion of my urologist. I have a condition with chronic irritation and the medication and diet changes I had tried were not getting me the relief I wanted. Dr. Ren was very compassionate to my situation. I have always felt very comfortable speaking with Dr. Ren and her application of the acupuncture points always performs exactly right for the situation. From our first session I saw improvement to my chronic symptoms. I believe that patients with chronic pain problems have a good chance of benefiting from the acupuncture sessions. Dr. Ren also has a wealth of information on Chinese medicine and much helpful advice to continue to help improve your health.

During the acupuncture sessions I often feel as if I am floating in a warm cloud of golden light. I feel the healing light fill my body. I also feel energy infuse my body and aura. I imagine that protective energy surrounds me and stays with me after each session. After an acupuncture session I feel rested and relaxed yet full of energy. I also feel happy and rejuvinated, as if I could run out the door and begin to exercise. I feel that acupuncture can provide many benefits that are difficult or perhaps not possible to receive anywhere else. It is a most helpful addition to any health regimen.

I would like you to know that I have been experiencing many benefits from my latest group of sessions. For your reference, there may be a gap between now and my next set of weekly sessions. I would like to devote more time on the weekends to my Reiki training. I have received Level II training and I would like to study to achieve Level III within one year. I will certainly make another appointment if my chronic symptoms become bad again, or at the beginning of more cold weather. Thank you again for all your help and advice. I am really feeling much better!"
Kind Regards,

"I have been a patient of Dr. Ren's for almost 3 years. For me, migraine headaches were a major problem and debilitating. Many times at work I would need to leave during the day to go home and rest because the headaches were so bad. I generally felt tired and very fatigued. That's when I began to explore acupuncture, as I had read that it could lessen the severity of migraine headaches. Dr. Ren's office was local and I decided to give the treatment a try. Initially, I saw Dr. Ren weekly, and now for maintenance, I see her just once per month. Acupuncture really worked for me. Yes, I occasionally get a migraine, but the pain is less severe and it doesn't last for days like before. I feel more energetic and can be more productive at home and work. In addition to headache pain, Dr. Ren is treating me to lessen pre-menstrual and menopausal symptoms. Hot flashes have been greatly reduced and irritability before my menstrual cycle is lessen. I recommend acupuncture to anyone who complains about migraines and female hormonal problems. Dr. Ren is very professional and a caring person. Her office is very clean and sanitary and she uses the utmost care in inserting the acupuncture needles. My life began over again once receiving Dr. Ren's treatments."

"I have been a patient of Dr. Ren's for several years. Dr. Ren has used her great expertise with acupuncture to help reduce the frequency and severity of my chronic migraine headaches from which I had been suffering for many years. I had received no relief from a variety of medical doctors I had made appointments with over the past 30 years. Each doctor only offered me heavy pain medications which would just knock me out but never really addressed the underlying cause of the headaches. Determined to be free of any more medications, I chose to try acupuncture and have found great success with Dr. Ren's treatments. The acupuncture needles are painless and the treatments have allowed my own natural energy flow (chi) to combat the migraines. Along with this, Dr. Ren has given me a specially formulated natural herbal tea which has worked prophylactically to help ward off any headaches before they begin to progress into a full blown migraine. Dr. Ren has a warm, professional rapport and is always willing to listen."

"After having suffered with allergies and sinus problems for many years, I finally decided to give acupuncture a try. I have been seeing Dr. Ren for about one year now, and the results have been incredible! I can breathe better and do not cough or suffer from sinus headaches as I did before. I have as much energy as I did 25 years ago and my general health has definitely improved. I have also noticed that my skin looks healthier, and tiny lines and wrinkles are less noticeable! Dr. Ren's treatments and herbal supplements have done more for me in one year than years of allergy medications, sprays and cold remedies. Thank you so much!"

"I had tried to have children for a long time; I tried IVF twice, but that didn't work. After finding out about Dr. Ren's expertise in treating infertility, I went to her for treatment. Following two months of acupuncture and herbal treatment, I was able to get pregnant! Now my daughter is two years old and healthy. Thank you very much, Dr. Ren!"

"I'm a 47-year-old female who experienced irritability, sadness, mood swings, hot flashes, night sweats, and inability to sleep before each period. My insurance recommended me to see Dr. Ren for treatment. Following about ten acupuncture treatments, most of my symptoms disappeared. I feel refreshed and like a new person!"
-C. McGregor-Bridgewater, NJ

"For a long time, I experienced persistent pain in my arms. After going to Dr. Ren and receiving a few weeks of acupuncture treatment, the pain was gone. Since then, I can report that I no longer experience chronic arm pain."
