When it came time for me to give birth to my first child, my doctor told me that because I was already almost 40 weeks and had not dilated even 1cm, he wanted to induce labor. I had read some scary stories on the internet about Ptosin, so I decided to try something else. I went on the internet and found The Axelrad Clinic and Chris Axelrad. After reading that he specialized in women’s issues and treating pregnant women, I scheduled a visit. Immediately I was put at ease because Chris was very confident that he could help me. He asked some important questions about the amniotic fluid and some other factors, and this really put me at ease also. My doctor agreed to give me one week to try acupuncture before we induced.I went for treatment two days in a row. Chris was even kind enough to schedule my third visit on a Saturday because he said it would not be effective if we did not do the treatments daily. I didn’t even need that Saturday treatment because my water broke on Friday evening, and I went into labor. There were no complications with my labor, and it went very smoothly. I’m so happy I found Chris and the Axelrad Clinic! Thanks for your help!

“As a first time user of chinese medicine, I was at first skeptkcal of the results I might get. After just 3 sessions I had a noticeable improvement for all conditions we were treating. I felt good about the process as it also helped me to stop taking prescription drugs to control the conditions. the prescription drugs worried me due to the side effects it might have on my unborn baby. I continued to do 2 sessions a week with Chris Axelrad up until the week before my delivery. I am grateful for Chris’ expertise and friendship and would highly recommend him and his practice to anyone in search of a better way!”

“As a young, single woman going through pregnancy on my own, I was very stressed out and overwhelmed with my situation. Even after my first visit with Chris, I felt more relaxed and confident in myself, and the threat of depression withered. Chris is very professional and respectful and has an excellent bedside manner. Not only did the qigong help relieve my issues, also his comforting advice eased my issues.”

Mary – 25 – Social Worker


“Towards the end of my 2nd trimester with my second child (a boy) I experienced dramatic changes in my health. I started having panic attacks, I would have trouble breathing, I developed blood pressure issues and a very serious case of insomnia. My chemicals had become completely unbalanced and I couldn’t function mentally or physically. After being hospitalized twice for dehydration, exhaustion and high blood pressure my OBGYN suggested a series of medications to keep these issues at bay. I researched the medication and the side effects on my unborn child. It didn’t take me long to recognize that both the short and long term side effects on my child made medication not an option. I started to research alternatives and that’s when I came across Axelrad Clinic. I met with Chris. His bedside manner and his knowledge put me at immediate ease that he could help me without taking medication. It took several (5 or 6) visits before I started to notice any changes, and then things shifted completely. I started to sleep, my blood pressure came down, I was breathing easy. During the remainder of my pregnancy, I did acupuncture with Chris 2x a week and avoided taking any medications. Plus I had the best naps EVER in his office during treatment.”

“My baby boy was born a healthy 8 1/2 pounds in May of 2007. He’s two now and I continuously think back to how Chris helped us.

“Last summer I was in an accident and shattered my leg. Through supplements and other Chinese medical treatment Chris helped me to improve the speed and quality of my healing and to get through 5 surgeries in 4 months. There is no doubt in my mind that Chris’s input made a huge difference. My orthopedist still can’t believe it.

“I am happy to say that I am healed and chasing around my little boy who keeps me hopping.

“Thanks Chris. You are the best.” Shelley – 40 – Financial Advisor


I came to the Axelrad Clinic after losing trust in all the conventional and alternative doctors I had seen. I’ve been on so many drugs: bioidentical hormones like estrogen and progesterone, hydrocortisone, sleep aids, and adrenal support supplements just to name a few. Nothing helped the continued excessive bleeding, insomnia, fatigue, hot flashes, and night sweats. Chris was all ears. He listened patiently and shaped a treatment plan for me. After 4 treatments I was able to get off all the prescription drugs and hormones and my symptoms were alleviated.

He brought back my trust after ten (10) long years of bad experiences with unsuccessful treatments. I highly recommend Chris Axelrad for menopause and women’s issues. His attentiveness to my problem enabled me to recover in a short time. – Sonya, 49


After years and years of headaches 3-4 times weekly, I no longer have them at all. And, that’s not even what I came here to treat! – Grace, 42


Several months ago, I came to Chris feeling just off-center. I was not ill necessarily, but I was definitely not myself. I was literally speeding into peri-menopause; my stomach was gaining too quickly, I was experiencing hot-flashes, I was not sleeping well, I was not digesting well, my period was off. After I saw Chris a few times for acupuncture, and after I established his suggested vitamin/mineral/herbal regime, I began to feel increasingly stronger. Now, I feel almost 100% back to normal. My period seems back to normal, my hot-flashes are rare, I’m not so tired because I’m sleeping better and my digestion seems very normal. Also, my moods are much more even. Through his treatments, his seminars and conversations with him about my issues, Chris taught me so much about my body and its wellness. He is a great listener and seems to really care about how to get and keep me well. He worked with me on many levels that enabled me to continue treatments and thrive under them. He really helped to bring me back to “center” physiologically and mentally. I would absolutely not be feeling this well without his treatments and will go back as much as I need in order to keep me feeling this way.

I am 27 years old and my health has been deteriorating since I was 19 years old. My freshman year in college I was experiencing severe nausea and vomiting every day. I was diagnosed with glucose intolerance and put on a lot of medication and a strict diet. Five years later I felt fine and took myself off the medications. Then last October I started experiencing extreme abdominal pain. The pain lasted everyday all day. I also had extremely painful periods. I went to my gynecologist and they suspected endometriosis so I had a laparoscopy and they found 2 minor spots that tested positive for endometriosis. I was told that the pain would go away after the surgery but it didn’t. So they put me on the Lupron injection shot for 3 months. I believe this made the pain worse. The pain got so bad that I couldn’t get out of bed and all I could do was cry. I didn’t give up and I continued to seek out doctors. I saw a gasterinterolgist and an endometriosis specialist. They wanted to rule out everything else so I had a ultrasound, endoscopy, colonoscopy, MRI, cat scan, and lots of blood work. Everything came back negative and looked perfectly fine. My pain was just getting worse and continued to be a mystery. I was starting to become very discouraged, depressed and I felt hopeless.

My best friend started to research endometriosis and abdominal pain to try to help me find some answers or alternatives I could try. She came across the Axelrad Clinic on the internet and she really believed in the natural holistic practice of medicine. She first approached me about it 3 months ago but I told her I was really skeptical about the alternative medicine and I wanted to try the Lupron injection shot instead. Since the Lupron only made my symptoms worse I felt that I hit rock bottom and was willing to try anything. Alli approached me again and insisted I try it. Thank God she did because I have only been on Chris’s supplements and herbs for 1 month and I feel better than I ever have. I have gone through numerous surgeries, procedures, and various extensive drug treatments and Chris’s approach of supplements and herbs has been the only thing that has given me relief.

I have been treated by many doctors and specialists in Houston and San Antonio for the last 9 years. My experience with Chris has been extremely different than the other doctors I have seen in that Chris is a great listener and he is great at putting things in perspective and giving me hope. He is the one person that I have found that truly takes time and puts his heart and soul in the practice and gives extra special care to his patients.

I feel a lot better. I have more energy during the day and I’m sleeping through the night for the first time in a year. But most important I am pain free.

I have already recommended this clinic to my sister and my good friend. Both of which are experiencing pain and discomfort.

I think my favorite part of this treatment was seeing such unbelievably positive results in my body. I think what amazed me the most was that because I don’t live in Houston, Chris treated me long distance and through trial and error and phone consultations I feel 100% better. I look forward to our weekly visits on the phone because each time he enlightens me with his knowledge on the human body. I am amazed at how this holistic approach has helped me so much.

“I really enjoy continuing to receive your newsletters even after so many years since I’ve lived in Houston. I just wanted to send a note to say that I really appreciate the treatments I received from you. That was really the first time I had felt in many years what it was like to have energy and not just be making it through the days. The job I took in Pennsylvania was a really awful experience, but it led me to Massachusetts which was amazing. Now I’m in Costa Rica!”


“I came in to see Chris feeling like I was at the end of my rope. My mental and physical energy were at their very lowest and I was experiencing panic attacks that left me frightened to the point where I just wanted to stay at home.
“Realizing my fear of needles, Chris suggested that we use Qigong – what a great experience. Through Chris’s ability to seek out the areas that needed help with his healing hands, I can actually feel improvements in my physical makeup but also a marked improvement in my panic attacks and am able to function as a normal person again. Through kind words, healing hands and constant listening to my ailments I definitely know that there is hope. Thank you Chris! You are amazing.”

I wanted to let you know that I had the most wonderful sleep last night. I went to bed at around 11 and slept till the alarm woke me up. In the morning, I felt very refreshed and could get up easily. I have again this light and happy feeling throughout the day. You are a wonderful healer.

– Gina – 45 – Medical Researcher


“I enjoy working with Chris very much. He wants to know my concerns and priorities, and he shapes a treatment plan accordingly. I’ve been to other practitioners of alternative medicine, but I don’t use their services any longer because I’ve never felt as listened to as I do with Chris.”

“Chris is a very caring individual. I came to Chris for general health maintenance issues including insomnia for over two years, cold hands and feet, and some digestive complaints. I have been very impressed and think that Chris is a very gifted healer. And, I have seen improvement in all areas where I wanted help — I am sleeping through the night almost every night, my hands and feet are no longer cold all the time, and my digestion has improved tremendously. All this after just 4 treatments!
“I’m not a big fan of needles, but Chris is very gifted, and the needles were painless. I have been to several acupuncturists in the past and my best experience has been with Chris. There should be more practitioners of natural medicine like him in Houston!”

– Karen – 39


“I suffer from chronic pain in my ankle joint and have had long standing nerve and circulation problems in my foot due to an old ankle injury, resulting in partial fusion. I first came to Chris during a severe pain episode. While acupunture has not cured the arthritis pain, it has lessened it’s severity and lessened greatly the other problems in my foot. At the end of the day I would experience burning and discomfort and soreness in my foot. While having weekly treatments and taking the herbs Chris provided, this pain and discomfort went away.”

– Annie – 39


“This note is long overdue. The month of December is just a little too demanding. I also chose the last two weeks to stop taking Bextra for my arthritis pain.
“Your herbs have helped me considerably. I still have pain but it is tolerable and I usually sleep all night now. This is all amazing considering just 6 months ago I was in pain all of the time and woke up at least 2-3 times a night.

“I still do the exercises that you gave me every day and also use heat alot on my hands. I hope to see you soon.”

– Anita – 53


“I was a patient of Chris Axelrad’s for a period of appoximately two months for the treatment of neck pain associated with several whiplash injuries sustained many years ago. The pain appeared to be muscular in nature, though a baseline MRI 4 years ago and subsequent MRIs (the most recent being at Chris’ suggestion) showed progressive spondylsis and cervical stenosis C4, C5 and C6. I went to Chris for acupuncture relief for the tightness, limited range of motion and inflammation of the muscles. In addition to acupuncture, Chris administered herbs and recommended some strengthening exercises.
“While my neck pain is still prevalent, it has lessened and I have learned to manage it with Chris’s guidance. I was very impressed with Chris’s abilities and most of all his genuine care for my well being. He followed up with calls and emails several times a week for several weeks after treatment to check on me. How many care providers would do that?

I would recommend Chris Axelrad for pain relief and have referred several people to him.

– Mary – 49 – Attorney


“Within a week of Chris treating me (2 appointments) my knee had improved by 25% after 2 weeks, I was at 70%. I continued the treatments and increased my range of motion. I was running and playing sports and did not look back after 2 months. Prior to seeing Chris, I had been injured for almost 2 months, seen 2 Doctors with no relief in sight. I highly recommend Chris Axelrad, his evaluation and attention to detail in my recuperative process enabled to fully recover in 2 months time.”
