“My shoulder (from weight lifting) hurt me for over 20 years. One visit with Dr. Lin and I was 85% better, one more visit and my shoulder has never bothered me again. It has been six years and my shoulder is still perfect. I work out 3 to 5 times a week with weights and still have no pain. I referred my wife to Dr. Lin for her chronic sinus problems and she was very happy with the results. I am 63 years old and would recommend Hongfei Lin to everyone.”
“As a nurse with 35 years of experience, I knew something was wrong, but none of my doctors could figure it out for me. I’m so pleased that my co-worker introduced me to the TrueMind® Center. Dr. Lin’s whole body treatments have not only led me to total recovery from my debilitating exhaustion, I have also lost weight and look younger.”

“ Since I was 16 I had problems with my menstrual cycle. I would miss my period frequently for as long as 6 months. This would be triggered by many factors including stress. Since I started treatments with Dr. Lin I have not missed a period. They are regular and the flow is normal. I started treatment at age 38 and am now 43.”
“In the spring of 2001 my right knee suddenly swelled up dramatically—without any warning pains or injury. I went to see an orthopedic surgeon, thinking I had torn the cartilage. X-rays and MRI’s showed no conclusive results–nothing appeared to be torn or broken. I went to a physical therapist, and I was able to get the swelling down quite a bit, but it never completely went away. In October my right ankle began to have similar symptoms–swelling and stiffness–that would not go away with physical therapy treatment. My physical therapist suggested I see a rheumatologist. The rheumatologist took fluid samples from my knees, did blood tests, and took more x-rays. The only thing that suggested a diagnosis was some compaction in my hips that pointed to a kind of arthritis known as spondyloarthropathy. But the doctor could not be more specific in his diagnosis. The suggested course of treatment included some rather nasty-sounding drugs that, it was implied, I would be taking for the rest of my life. They included some pretty powerful non-steroidal anti-inflammatories with known negative effects on the gastrointestinal tract, chemotherapy drugs, and antibiotics. I said to myself that there has to be a better way. That course of treatment sounded like a path to all kinds of complications and side effects. So I stopped going to the rheumatologist. I never took any of the drugs. I grew up in a household that appreciates alternative approaches, and those are the approaches I sought. I tried homeopathy, yoga, nutrition, exercise, and acupuncture. All of them helped, but not dramatically. Then someone suggested I try Dr. Hongfei Lin.
I have been going to Dr. Lin for treatment since May of 2003. After a long interview about my medical history and current condition, she said she thought she could do something for me, despite the chronic nature of my condition. Unlike other alternative practitioners I have seen, Dr. Lin took the time to explain to me her proposed course of treatment and gave me a timeline for that course of treatment, which I greatly appreciated. She told me how she works with Chi to help remove blockages and strengthen weak areas. She spoke to me about my role in the healing process–the need to work with my emotions to help the healing process along.
We began with acupuncture treatments two-times a week, and as I improved I was able to go once a week, and now I am about to start going once every other week. At first it was painful for me just to lie on the table because my legs would cramp up. I had very little hope that anything would come of the treatment, but Dr. Lin’s confidence and compassion encouraged me to return. Then I began to improve, slowly but surely I continued to improve. Today the pain and stiffness are minimal. The most remarkable thing for me is that I no longer think about my illness all the time. It no longer dominates my life, and I have Dr. Lin to thank for that. Thank you Dr. Lin!”
“I started seeing Dr. Lin in the fall of 1996 for severe environmental problems. My reason for choosing Traditional Chinese Medicine was obvious, I had wanted a natural and holistic treatment method. Soon after the treatment started I began to feel a positive change, both physically and mentally. Having been a cancer survivor of several years, and being under the observant care of Dr. Lin as well, other problems were address and treated successfully. In the meantime, remarkable changes have taken place and a tremendous sense of well being is noted. I am stronger, more active and alive now than I have been in 20 years. My environmental sensitivities no longer exist!
I have referred several of our friends as well as my husband to Dr. Lin’s clinic. All have had similar successes to show. In the meantime, Dr, Lin has become my friend and my mentor whom I consider a well trained and highly professional, qualified physician, an authority in Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. She has my highest regards and trust.”
“I came to see Dr. Lin in 1995 when I was diagnosed with a thyroid tumor about 3 cm. by 1.5 cm. large as well as hypothyroidism. I had lost about 80% of my hair and was extremely fatigued. My doctor suggested surgery to remove the tumor as well as the entire gland, and I would then have to take thyroid medication for the rest of my life.
I had seen Dr. Lin for acupuncture treatment when I was visiting Alaska in 1990. I was so glad when a friend told me that she had moved to Colorado that I set up an appointment right away to discuss my thyroid problems.
After 5 treatments, my hormones and my energy returned to normal and my hair stopped falling out. After another 10 treatments my hair began to re-grow and I returned to my physician to learn that my tumor had disappeared!
It has been 9 years now and my thyroid is still functioning normally.”
‘I came to see Dr. Lin in desperation. Western medicine was addressing a symptom here and a symptom there and saying nothing was really wrong with me, but I felt physically broken in every way. My digestion, breathing, hormones, and energy level were completely out of whack and I felt like I couldn’t hold on much longer. I needed help! My father recommended Dr. Lin because she had successfully treated him as an alternative to neck surgery. I was hopeful I could work with Dr. Lin to address my problems and begin to heal.
Each visit I felt positive change like a listing ship righting itself. I was much improved after 6 months. The acupuncture, herbs, and verbal advice taken to heart were a powerful combination. My 2-year journey toward wellness has been whole mind and body.
Occasionally I had a powerful breakthrough visit that resulted in a life changing feeling like shedding old physical and/or mental baggage that had been contributing to my previous unwellness.
I now feel strong, calm, and well. I visit Dr. Lin a few times a year to maintain my health. I have recommended Dr. Lin to many friends when they comment on my improved health. The ones who have had the most success were those that partnered with Dr. Lin to heal themselves with her care and guidance.”
