Raynaud’s Phenomenon (Cold Limbs), Depression, Back Pain, Low Energy (physical and emotional), Spontaneous Pneumothorax, Chest pain, Shortness of Breath, Prostatitis
Jacob (see #172 10-2-04, from West Hollywood, CA) This film maker suffers from cold intolerance in his hands and feet. His doctor’s diagnosed him with Raynaud’s Phenomenon, for which they told him to dress more warmly and to overdose on Niacin so that he could be warmer. He also tried acupuncture once a week for a year, which initially helped him. However, the effects began to wear off. He was wearing gloves and hat to sleep from being cold. He also had back pain and was generally very low in energy and depressed. He heard about Dr. Tong through the radio and decided to try his treatment. After his first treatment with Dr. Tong, he was instantly feeling much warmer and he was also feeling much happier, as a side effect, which he did not expect or believe. Jacob also suffered from spontaneous pneumothorax and had shortness of breath for a day. He went to the emergency room and told him he had a collapsed lung. They observed him for a couple of days and he did not feel much better (his bill was $12,000!!) After one treatment with Dr. Tong, he instantly could breathe better. Jacob continues to improve and returns to see Dr. Tong about once a month. His energy is incredible and in addition, he has been able to maintain a very happy and uplifting attitude. Dr. Tong’s treatment of his kidneys also helped him with motivation, procrastination, and will-power.
