(Claudia, see RS #37 6-9-01, RS #39 6-30-01, RS #54 10-20-01) – Diagnosed with arthritis two years ago, Claudia was on drugs such as Prednisone and Daypro for the pain. She became very tired from the pain and also had cold intolerance. Her first treatment 3 days ago increased her energy greatly, reduced the intensity of her pain, and she is less cold now. She has dropped all her arthritic medication (Celebrex). This is a follow-up on her progress. After testing positive for the Rh factor for seven years, her most recent blood work showed the Rh factor to be negative. This is without the use of drugs. Her arthritis has subsided considerably. Today, the nodules in her hands from the arthritis are disappearing, and the ulnar deviation is also improving, where her fingers are straightening out.

(Ann Marie, see RS #45 8-18-01, RS #48 9-8-01, RS #149 2-28-04 #274 2/27/10 from Orange County) – Four and a half years ago, she suffered from a lung infection and went to 5 specialists, none of who could help her. The infection cleared while she was on antibiotics, but returned as soon as she went off them. All tests for diseases were negative, which baffled her doctors. Her pulmonary specialist told her that she would have to take antibiotics for the rest of her life. She then went to Scripps in La Jolla which did not help her. Her symptoms included coughing, chest pain, sputum, and tightening in her chest. She also had flu-like symptoms and bodyaches, all of which she suffered continually for a year and a half. The high doses of antibiotics also caused her to get yeast infections. After 2-3 months of treatments from Dr. Tong, she was off all the antibiotics and her infection was cured. Recently, this past April, she underwent knee surgery for knee pain. After her surgery, she became physically ill and sick for 2 months. Her knee pain returned and she was back on crutches and a knee brace. Her Chronic Fatigue Syndrome returned. After one treatment from Dr. Tong, she is off her crutches, off her knee brace, has more energy, can sleep better and is feeling emotionally better.
