Mrs. Zhou was born in Pompano Beach in 1935. She moved to Delray Beach to start her elementary school when she was 6 years old. She finished her high school in Palm Beach Garden private school and came back to FAU in Boca Raton for her college study. During the 4 years of study in Boca Raton, she had a lot of processed food including cookies, cakes and candies. She developed breast cysts in her earlier forties and went to a hospital in Fort Lauderdale to get the cysts removed two times. She continued with her unhealthy diet and 3 cups of coffee every day after the surgery. She was diagnosed as breast cancer in stage I and had mastectomy in a hospital in Boynton Beach. She started Tamoxifen after the surgery. The next year she was diagnosed as uterus cancer, she had total hysterectomy in a well known hospital in West Palm Beach. She changed her diet and started eating a lot of fruit and vegetables. She had been cancer free for 17 years. In 2011, she was diagnosed as tonsil cancer, which spread out to her lymph nodes. She had radiation treatment in a local hospital in Parkland and she lost her left side hearing due to the radiation. She continues her healthy diet and exercises. She has been cancer free another 6 years. She came to see me due to her lower back pain; she had tired acupuncture in Coral Springs, Coconut Creek and Deerfield Beach. She was not happy with the result. Her friend who lives in Miami referred her to Boca Raton acupuncture. She has had 5 treatments for her lower back pain and arthritis in her hand, now she can walk more than an hour without back pain. Her arthritis in her hands is getting better with acupuncture treatment once a week. She is a very kind and social person and loves to read for her grandchild.
