SOMETHING WE THOUGHT MAY NEVER HAPPEN
Dear Spence, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the great work you do each and every day. I’m very happy that we got to meet you and benefit from your wonderful care. During the past 2 years, we had to overcome a lot of roadblocks and I’m very grateful for your guidance on how to remove and overcome them. It was a lot of work, many tears, lots of fears, and many choices but it was most definitely all well worth it. My struggles changed me. But without it, I wouldn’t be the person that I am today. My story will always be my story and you will always be part of it. I’m already looking forward to the day when we get to tell it to our daughter or son.
I would like to thank him for helping create our little miracle
Before visiting Spence, I felt so alone, frustrated, disappointed, and sad every month when my cycle would start yet again. We met with Spence who is the sweetest person and so caring and knowledgeable in his field. He always made us feel like we weren’t alone in this struggle and gave us encouragement and support throughout the whole process. After seeing Spence for 3 months and following his recommendations, I got pregnant and we were beyond thrilled. Today we have a beautiful healthy baby boy! I believe that Spence’s skills played a pivotal role in our ability to conceive and would like to thank him for helping create our little miracle.
I would definitely recommend Yinstill to anyone
Dr. Pentland was extremely supportive and truly took the time to listen to my questions and concerns. He clearly has a wealth of experience working with fertility patients and in-depth knowledge of every step of the process. I felt that my treatment was tailored to my particular situation and my regular sessions were one of the most fulfilling & relaxing parts of my week.

'the island talks' podcast & wellness Blog
Inevitably, having practiced Traditional Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture for over 20 years has brought me deep into the world of pain and injury, low back pain being a majority of my cases (i.e. sciatica, SI joint pain, slipped/herniated discs, osteoarthritis, facet joining syndrome, vertebral degeneration, piriformis syndrome, etc). Contrary to common belief, in my experience, in most cases there is much that can be done to relieve and manage these conditions.
In this episode I walk and talk with Dr Rigobert Kefferputz (Rigo). A brilliant Naturopathic doctor serving this island with a multitude of skill sets and tools.
Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine can be very effective at addressing symptoms associated with endometriosis. Our primary goal is to reduce pain with secondary goals being to improve fertility, balance hormone levels, reduce inflammation surrounding the ovaries and uterus, regulate heavy menstrual bleeding. The approach with Chinese medicine treats the condition by addressing the specific mechanism causing pain and reducing other sources of inflammation that may be contributing to the full set of symptoms experienced.
