Irritable bowel syndrome, abbreviated as IBS is a common gastric problem in large intestine, which is characterized by abdomen cramping, pain and stomach bloating. Other common symptoms related with IBS are gas and constipation. IBS in Emeryville is generally a chronic disorder, but is not linked with other gastric problems like ulcers or colon cancer and it requires long term managements. However, the symptoms are generally mild and can be subdued with basic lifestyle changes and having proper diet. In case of more strong symptoms, medication and counseling are required. Most commonly, IBS is observed in people under the age of 50 and preferably more in females. Genes also appear to play a role as most patients had a family member, who had IBS before.

In some cases, the symptoms can be more complex, like weight loss, rectal bleeding, mucus in stool, anemia, sudden vomiting and stomach pains. What exactly causes IBS is not known, but as a general belief, IBS is caused by improper muscle contractions in the intestines that may be either too strong to too weak, abnormalities in the nerves in the digestive system that may cause poor digestive working, infection in digestive area by virus or bacteria from bacterial overgrowth and an improper amount of microbiota in intestine. Apart from these factors, IBS symptoms are sometimes more escalated by the consumption of foods to which a patient is allergic. Stress can also play a role in the problem and can elevate the symptoms.

Carrol is very knowledgable in what she does. The ambience and warmth of her space makes me look forward to my appointments with her.  Carrol really listens to what your skin needs are and has a holistic picture of the whole human being.  She is very considerate about getting me appointments and getting back to me as soon as she is able. Carrol you rock!

I initially went to Carrol at A Current Affair 2 years ago when I was visiting a friend in the bay area.  After viewing the videos on her website, I thought her facials sounded rather unique and thought I'd give her a try.
I was very pleased with the results I noticed from just one of Carrol's facial rejuvenation treatments, and made sure I reserved time to see her again on this trip. 
After this recent facial, I wanted to add more to my review from 2 years ago, but was surprised to see my review had been removed. I don't typically write reviews, but when you have found a practitioner that offers so much more than the standard, why keep it a secret?  
I have had many facials over the years in many areas of the country and NONE compare to Carrol's. Her facials are thorough, effective and AMAZING. She even includes acupuncture and electrolysis, if you want it. You also get the option of receiving microdermabrasion or microcurrent at no extra cost!   I have never heard of anyone who offers all this in a facial, not to mention at her very reasonable price.
My skin looks and feels wonderful after one of her treatments.  A Current Affair in Montclair has now become a destination point for me.

I've been going to A Current Affair for the past year for electrolysis.  I had a few sessions with other electrolysis providers before finding Carroll, the owner, and I'm very glad that I took the trouble to find a great one.   
There are three methods used in electrolysis (galvanic, thermolysis, and blend) and Carrol uses all three methods, depending on the needs of her client and the particulars of the hair she is removing. The other people I saw just used one method or the other. 
At one of the prior places I went, the heat was so intense that the provider would be constantly applying ice packs to my face so that it wouldn't burn - it was intensely painful still.  Many people give up on electrolysis because they can't hack it, and I was definitely thinking that this was not for me.  Carrol will adjust the heat settings depending on the location she is treating to a comfortable level.  I have never come out of the session with a burn on my face.  She is constantly checking in on how you are doing, and she works quickly and efficiently.  I go for half hour sessions ($50) twice a month and the session is over before you know it.
I've been really happy with the results. 
In short, Carrol is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and adept at her craft,and is very easy to deal with.  The whole experience is just hassle free and worth the time and effort..  She is located one block off of the Thornhill exit of Highway 13 in Oakland, which makes it really easy and convenient to get in for an appointment.

I've been undergoing electrolysis treatments at A Current Affair for almost 11 months (since November 2013). I started coming pretty frequently, 2 appointments a week for about an hour each, but gradually my hair growth decreased to the point where I'm only coming in once a month for about 45 minutes. The change is pretty amazing!
A Current Affair is a great place for electrolysis. I was recommended by a family friend who is a doctor, and I was so impressed with her results that I immediately called for an appointment. It was the best decision I made last year. 
I cannot tell you how happy I am to have found A Current Affair. Carol's office is clean, quiet, and relaxing. There's a heated bed and soothing music and Carol is very friendly, skilled and professional. She's great about giving recommendations for topical creams and exfoliants so get the best results possible, and she's very sensitive to the needs of different skin types. 
The prices are totally reasonable and much cheaper over the long run than waxing for the rest of your life. The location is very close to the freeway and only a five-minute drive from Rockridge BART station, with convenient parking in front of her office. Carol is super nice about making appointments after 5 pm for those who work during the day and can't make morning or afternoon visits. 
I cannot recommend her services enough! For those who have had to deal with unsightly facial and body hair, look no further! You will definitely want to check out A Current Affair. Totally worth it. The results will amaze you!
