Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, Shortness of Breath, Cough, Mucus, Lower Back Pain, Acid Reflux, Nocturia
Betty (from South Dakota see #134 9-6-03) – In the fall of 1999, Betty began experiencing shortness of breath. She consulted an M.D. in the spring of 2000 and was put on an inhaler for 6 months. The inhaler failed to relieve her symptoms which led her to a pulmonary specialist who diagnosed her with pulmonary fibrosis. The specialist added Prednisone, one more inhaler, and a nebulizer. Three months later, her symptoms worsened. She had her house tested for toxins, but the results came out negative. She had an appointment at Mayo Clinic, but at the suggestion of her son, she decided instead to come to California to consult Dr. Tong. She has now had 2 treatments with Dr. Tong. Before the first treatment was even over, she could mechanically take a deep breath. Now she does not cough, she sleeps better, she does not have to get up at night to urinate, and she has more energy. Her back pain is gone and she has no acid reflux.
Osteoarthritis, Knee Pain, Failed Knee Surgery x 4
Harold (from Apple Valley, CA) was a football player who underwent four knee surgeries between 1963 and 1970. The cartilage and synovial fluid from his knee were removed and drained. The surgeries helped his pain at first until osteoarthritis set in. In 1985, he could no longer engage in physical activity because of the pain. He was taking 800mg of Ibuprofen four times a day to try and relieve the pain. Harold heard Dr. Tong on the radio and decided to try his treatment. He has now had 2 treatments. During his first treatment with Dr. Tong, he straightened his knee, whereas before, he could not do so. He also could not bend his knee beyond 90 degrees. Now the mobility in his knees has greatly improved and he is even starting to play tennis.
