Restless Leg Syndrome, Back Pain, Nocturia, Astigmatism
Edgar (see #120 5-31-03) came to the United States from the Phillipines 3 years ago. The stress of finding a job and adjusting to living in a new country caused him to develop Restless Leg Syndrome, back pain, and nocturia. He could not stop moving his legs which caused him to have problems sleeping at night and he would have to wake up numerous times at night to urinate. He went to an HMO doctor, who did nothing to help. He also tried acupuncture which also did not help. After 2 treatments with Dr. Tong, his symptoms have significantly improved. He slept through the night for 5 hours and did not get up to urinate once. He is breathing better. Edgar also had an astigmatism which has improved with Dr. Tong’s treatment. He states that he could immediately see clearer as Dr. Tong was treating him.
Sinus Problems, Ovarian Cyst, Irregular Periods
Leslie is a teacher who is very sensitive to drugs. She has had sinus problems for 3 years but could not get any help because of her sensitivity. The side effects from the antibiotics would make her even sicker. She also had a cyst in her left ovary which was painful and irregular periods. She has had 3 treatments from Dr. Tong, and her sinuses have cleared up and she has no pain in her ovary. Her menstruation cycle has also been regulated. Her previous physician had suggested putting Leslie on oral contraceptives. Dr. Tong explains the fallacy of birth control pills.

She consulted 3 doctors including a gynecologist who diagnosed her with polycystic ovarian syndrome. She had cysts all over her ovaries, which were causing her much pain. She was put on birth control, which regulated her period, but did nothing to help her pain. She has had 2 treatments with Dr. Tong in September of 2002 and her pain is now completely gone. It has been 7 months since Andrea has seen Dr. Tong and she is back for treatment of fatigue, back pain, and pain at the bottom of her feet. She was recently on a clinical rotation where she had to use her hands extensively, which she thinks has caused her fatigue and back pain. After one treatment with Dr. Tong, her energy was rejuvenated and she no longer has back pain. Dr Tong explains that Andrea’s kidneys were affected which were causing her symptoms.
