Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sinusitis, Rheumatic Fever, Massive Allergies
(Doris from South Orange County, CA) – Bookkeeper, diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis last April with also a history of sinusitis, rheumatic fever, and massive allergies since she was a child. She had been on over the counter drugs including decongestants, allergy and headache medicine for 4-5 years with no help. She was seeking alternative methods for her condition. After treatments with Dr. Tong, her sinuses have been cleared since June, she has no headaches, and her left foot pain has dissipated. Her menopausal symptoms have also cleared. She has no hot flashes anymore, her energy has increased, and she is emotionally able to manage her stress much better.
Rheumatoid Arthritis, Knee Pain, Sleeping Difficulty, Depression
(Valerie from Whittier, CA) – Business manager of a senior center who suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, knee pain, sleeping difficulty, and depression due to her pain. After going through a divorce, she was not feeling well. Her pain kept her from walking. She could barely get up, she was sick all the time, and couldn’t work. She was put on drugs including Methotrexate (an anti-cancer drug), “to feel better,” but to no avail. She always had constant pain with swollen joints, inflammation in her knees so that she couldn’t squat, had swollen hands, and couldn’t walk. After 2 treatments with Dr. Tong, she could stand on her feet without pain. She feels her body changing with her severe pain decreasing. Her ankle pain has decreased by 95%. Her depression is completely gone and she can now deal with her problems without feeling stressed. She is also changing her diet and taking herbs at Dr. Tong’s advisement to improve her health.
Inflammation, Knee Pain, Hypertension
(Abe, see RS #46, 8-25-01) – Follow-up interview. He went for a check-up with his doctor from Kaiser, who saw that he is walking much better without swelling in his knees or fluid, which at one time was drawn out of his knee 17 times. He now has no knee pain. Further, he had reservations about getting off his medications (11 meds), but has decreased them by 50% after Dr. Tong’s treatments. He is now off his blood thinner and is taking fish oil instead. He is also off Lasix, a water pill, which he does not need anymore. His blood pressure is also now under control without the use of medication.
