(Ellen, see #27 3-31-01, from San Diego) – This former teacher and health practitioner became disabled 12 years ago and was diagnosed with the above diseases. It got to the point where she lost her will to live and went into stage 6 adrenal collapse. (There are 7 stages in which stage 7 is death.) The doctors told her that only 4% recover from stage 6. She was bedridden for a year, depressed, and had to get daily enemas in order to have a bowel movement. Her life was a nightmare. She started taking Cortisol because her blood pressure was dropping to the point that she could not stand up. It would wear off within 2 hours and she would be exhausted again. She never went a day without symptoms. However, since seeing Dr. Tong 18 months ago, she has seen much improvement with her health. She now has a life. The intensity of her symptoms have lessened to the point where she is active again, social again, and has now found much joy in music and singing. She doesn’t think of herself as a walking illness anymore. She has much emotional relief from Dr. Tong’s treatments and thinks positively now about all the progress she has made with Dr. Tong.

Degenerating Small Brain, Cerebellar Ataxia, Speech Problems
(Barbara, see #89 9-7-02 from Maryland) – In October of 2001, Barbara started having problems walking, writing, and talking. She consulted several doctors, including physicians at Johns Hopkins. All of them had no idea what was wrong with her, as her MRI’s came out normal. The doctors finally diagnosed her with Cerebellar Ataxia, where her cerebellum was degenerating causing problems with her balance and motor function. However, there was nothing they could do for her condition. Her walking became progressively wobbly and she began slurring her words. She decided to come to California to consult Dr. Tong. After her first treatment, her walking greatly improved and her right leg has become much stronger.
