“I went to see MONICA XU in the summer of 2017.
I had a terrible problem with my hair falling out.

Previously I had had a battery of tests by my doctor here in Hong Kong. It was discovered that I had very high arsenic levels.  My doctor suggested I undertake chelation to remove this heavy metal. This regime would take 6-9 months. An alarming length of time when my hair was getting terribly thin.

I then went to see Monica here in Hong Kong.
After due consideration she suggested I seek out ‘far infared sauna’ which would remove the heavy metals if taken regularly without the need for the chelation. And in a much shorter time frame.

As I had to go outside her practice to find this sauna – Monica kindly phoned the sauna business to confirm that this was the correct type of sauna. I have recently been tested and my 99.9 arsenic percentile has now reduced to 26.5 percentile –  I feel wonderful and my hair loss has stopped completely and my hair is regrowing wonderfully.

Monica was so kind and understanding.  She never tried to over prescribe. She was knowledge and always professional.

I would thoroughly recommend MONICA XU to anyone seeking an extremely knowledgeable naturopath – who also cares and understands!”

Testimonial

“I approached Dr. Monica because I had issues with missed and late periods (which later diagnosed as PCOS)..Dr. Monica helped me by getting my period perfectly on track within 3 months from my first visit. She also made a clear picture of the short and long term goal in her approach to get my hacky hormones in balance.

My experience with Dr. Monica has been a great one that I will never forget.
Thank you, Dr. Monica!”
