Breast Cancer, Chemotherapy, Bone Pain, Low Back Pain, Leukopenia, Dry Mouth, Constipation, Fatigue, Depression
Kay (see #156 5-22-04, #158 6-19-04, from San Diego, CA) is a 41 year old woman diagnosed with Inflammatory breast cancer 5 months ago. She was treated in the Cancer center in San Diego with 4 months of chemotherapy (using 3 chemicals). The side effects from the chemotherapy treatments included constipation, upset stomach, nausea, and fatigue. She also started having bone pain throughout her body, lower back pain, and severe dry mouth since starting chemotherapy. Every time she got a chemotherapy treatment her white blood cell (WBC) count would drop, one time almost zero, which would have been detrimental for her if she had a severe infection. She was then given a chemical to stimulate her bone marrow to create more WBC’s. The injection of this drug was expensive and painful, causing more bone pain. In fact, the first injection of drug that she received made her WBC decrease from 1500 down to 500. After her very first NBE treatment, her constipation was completely resolved Continued treatments relieved her of the bone pain. Her WBC count went from 500 to 5200. She decided to discontinue chemotherapy and only receive Dr. Tong’s treatment. After 10 treatments with Dr. Tong within a 4 month period of time, her energy has increased, she has no more depression, and she no longer suffers from any of the side effects of chemotherapy. Most importantly, her tumor size has shrunk by 30% from 6cm to 4cm. It is softening and becoming less dark. Her back pain has also lessened and her WBC has stabilized.

Albert (see # 136 9-27-03, #142 11-29-03) has suffered from severe lower back pain and leg pain for the last 2 years. He was diagnosed with spinal stenosis and had a barrage of tests done such as MRI and X-rays. The x-rays showed spinal stenosis and decreased cartilage. He has pain when he is standing, sitting, or walking, leaving him virtually immobile for the last 2 years He has had several epidurals and was on a plethora of anti-inflammatories all to no avail. He heard Dr. Tong on the radio and decided to try his treatment, although he was skeptical. He had his first treatment 4 days ago and his pain is now gone. That same day he went fishing and walked a quarter of a mile with all of his fishing gear without any pain for the first time in 2 years. He is now walking up hills and everywhere without pain. Al has returned to see Dr. Tong after a few sessions of physical therapy made the muscles in his legs hurt. After NBE treatments, he has no pain once again. He has had 6 treatments in 6 months and has very little pain. Now he is working on losing some weight.
