Colon Cancer, Chemotherapy, Right Sciatic Pain, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Leg Pain, Foot Pain, Brain Fog, Fatigue/Low Energy
Gloria (see # 105 2-1-03, from San Diego, CA) This homemaker was diagnosed with colon cancer two years ago and subsequently underwent surgery and 4 months of chemotherapy. The chemotherapy caused side effects such severe fatigue, brain fog (difficulty concentrating and remembering) and difficulty communicating well. She also became short of breath. She tried changing her diet and going on a vitamin program, but to no avail. Gloria also suffered from severe sciatic pain, fibromyalgia, and arthritis 3 months ago after undergoing a foot surgery. She tried medication which did little to alleviate her pain. After her first treatment with Dr. Tong, she had more energy and could think clearer. She realized that the chemotherapy was making her brain fog worse and stopped 2 months short of completing. She has now had 5 treatments with Dr. Tong and she feels much more balanced. Her pain has seen a 50% improvement, her concentrating and thinking are clearer, and she feels more balanced.

Marilyn (see #77 5-4-02, #101 1-4-03, #106 2-8-03 from Marieta, CA) This massage therapist suffered from 6 years of “rotator cuff” pain and numbness (shoulder area) due to repetitive motion. She finally had to quit her job and underwent many types of therapy such including cortisone injections, acupuncture, chiropractic, and physical therapy. She also suffered from depression and low manic episodes for 10 years. She was on 6 anti-depressants which would help her get our of her slump but suffered from side effects such as constipation, dizziness, dry, mouth, and lethargy from the medications. She would sleep 12-14 hours without feeling rested. In April of 2002, she consulted Dr. Tong for her pain and found immediate improvement. She was extremely sensitive emotionally and the treatments fine-tuned her emotions. She now feels joy in life and rarely gets into her deep bouts of depression.
