PANIC DISORDER, TINNITUS
Around two months ago I broke my ankle and had to have surgery and have my foot and leg placed in a cast. Since my twenties I had been slightly bothered by claustrophobia, but somehow having the cast on my leg brought on a much sever case. When the cast was removed around three weeks ago, within a day I began to suffer severe panic attacks which caused me to be unable to sit or lie down for more than just a few minutes at a time. I had to be constantly walking, pacing back and forth. I didn’t sleep for a week or more, I was tired, but could not lie down for any amount of time, and had to get up and walk around.
The anxiety caused me to have a desperate feeling as though I needed to do something, but could not figure what to do. Pacing didn’t help much, but it was all I could do, I could not relax. Exercise didn’t help. I couldn’t even do that for a few minutes without getting up and walking. It is almost impossible to describe how uneasy I felt. Even riding in a car turned out to cause problems; if it got where the traffic was tied up for more than three or four minutes, I felt like I needed to jump out of the vehicle.
My appetite was also affected. I didn’t eat meals, only picked for two weeks, three or four days before I first visited Dr. Tong, I had to force myself to eat because I knew I had to or I might damage my body. I had lost fifteen pounds.
On my first visit to Dr. Tong’s office I had to pace back and forth in the reception room, I insisted upon a spacious room and had to have the blinds open. I could not sit still while the office worker took my history; she sat while I paced and answered questions.
The first treatment helped a lot, but the next day I had enough anxiety that I called the office for another appointment. I had seen enough improvement to warrant me driving to Long Beach (approx. 55 min. drive) to get another treatment. That helped, and I was able to make it through until my next appointment.
Since being treated by Dr. Tong the symptoms have subsided greatly. Even after the first treatment I was a lot better. After the third one, I even felt better than “normal”. My appetite increased and I was able to eat. In fact, I feel very hungry after each treatment. I now feel as though if I had continued the way I was I might have died of starvation My sleep is improving. I can actually sleep at night!
I still have a little anxiety, however I can sit and relax for longer periods of time and carry on conversations with people. I am able to stay in the treatment room and lie on the table for long periods of time without needing to jump up and walk around.
Being stuck in traffic doesn’t bother me like it did. Also the swelling left in my ankle from the break and subsequent surgery has decreased.
One incident which exemplifies my condition was that one week before my first visit to Dr. Tong, a friend invited me to go sailing, and after sitting in the boat for just a short time, I could no longer stand the tension and had to eject myself from the boat. We hadn’t even pulled away from the dock! I am now able to enjoy sailing alone.
On February 14, 1984, I was hit by a car in a crosswalk in Bellflower, California and only by the grace of God my life was spared. I was hit very hard on the entire right side of my body with 2 fractures in my head which caused loss of hearing in my right ear and nerve damage in my inner ear. I exhausted all medical doctors then read Dr. Tong’s advertisement in the paper. This is the only relief I have ever received and highly recommend him and his staff.
CHRONIC HEADACHES, IMPAIRED HEARING & TINNITUS
I don’t have any more headaches since the first time that I saw you. I can hear much better. My circulation is also much better. I am not going to the bathroom as often in the night. When I talk my voice sounds better to me. After sitting a couple of hours, I had to stand for a couple of seconds before walking. I don’t have to do that anymore.
DEPRESSION, ALZHEIMER’S, HEARING DIFFICULTY, SPEECH PROBLEM, SHOULDER PAIN
Deborah W. is a 73 year old who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s for three years with symptoms of depression, fatigue, memory loss, loss of mental acuity, hearing loss and multiple pain. She has exhausted all forms of conventional and unconventional treatments, including expensive hyperbaric oxygen, chelation therapy, daily growth hormone injections, herbs, and nutrition, all to no avail.
Her daughter stated that NBE therapy was the only treatment that has made a difference in her. After three weeks of treatment, she was free of pain, had more energy, less depression, and was mentally more alert, being able to recall both her husband and her own age as well as their birthdays. She also regained her sense of humor-the best sign of recovery from Alzheimer’s syndrome.
My mother has had every treatment possible from medical, experimental treatments such as chelation and daily growth hormone shots to alternative treatments such as pills, powders, and juices. She has even tried hyperbaric oxygen treatments. Nothing has helped. I believe that Dr. Tong’s treatment is the only treatment that has had any effect. I wouldn’t say an instant change, but a gradual noticeable change. I also haven’t noticed side effects. She is not as lethargic or sleepy. She has less pain in her shoulder from the arthritis. Her hearing is clearer and her memory is sharper. She is remembering more. She is witty and makes jokes. She responds faster, makes more sense, and can carry a on conversation better than before.

MENIERE’S DISEASE, CHRONIC BRONCHITIS, CROHNS’ DISEASE, SPINAL INJURY, STROKE
First I would like to stress the point that I have suffered spinal pain starting in my Cervical through the Thoracic and extending to the Lumbar Sacral areas for approximately 35 years, after having been involved in an auto accident that rendered me in a Coma for a period of three and a half weeks.
I have been examined by four Orthopedic Medical Specialist over the many years of pain that I have suffered with related to my unstable spinal condition. Dr. Curtis Spencer of the Sports Medicine Group that is related to Memorial Hospital in Long Beach, Ca. Dr. Andrew S. Frankel, M.D. Brandywine Orthopedic Associates, 486 Thomas Way, Suite 110, Exton, Pennsylvania. Dr. Samuel Kim of the Pacific Orthopedic Medical Group, Long Beach, Ca.; and finally the pain management and Orthopedic Department of the Veterans Hospital, Long Beach, Ca.
All of the evaluating Doctors concurred with my symptoms of Chronic Pain that I have endured for such an extended period time. In almost every evaluation of my damaged spinal condition, the consensus was that surgery would only increase my existing pain and compromise further the structural integrity of my already weakened spine. To quote the many examining Doctors, “Mr. LeFevre your spinal problems do not respond well to surgery.”
I have exhausted all the avenues open to me with my spinal problems, Chiropractic, Epidural Injections, physical therapy and trigger point injections administered to me other then by Dr. Tong. The trigger point injections and Epidural injections were performed in the Brandywine Hospital located in Coatesville, Pa. as well as the V.A. Hospital in Long Beach, Ca. with very little relief, as well as Memorial Hospital, L.B. Hospital.
When I saw Dr. Tong on television and listened to the many Testimonials of his patients I decided to give him a chance. Dr. Tong not only has gotten me out of bed so I can walk a fair distance without my cane, but; he has reduced my Chronic Bronchitis to the point that I no longer need to rely on antibiotics. Dr. Tong’s treatments have helped my severe Crohns Disease of both my small and large intestines remarkably. Dr. Tongs treatments have improved my Meniere’s Disease to the point that it can be controlled by his expert approach to this disabling cycle. His treatments have brought my liver enzyme levels back to normal. But, most of all; he has all but corrected the debilitating stroke that I suffered approximately two years ago.
I am being treated for psychiatric problems at the V.A. Hospital, L.B. Ca. by Dr. Marvin Galinsky. He has stated that he has noticed improvement with my mental state since being treated by Dr. Tong. I realize that I could never again hold gainful employment with all my medical problems, but; Dr. Tong has given me back a quality of life worth living for.

Mitral Valve Prolapse, Panic Disorder, Tinnitus
Twenty years ago, I was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse. During this time, I have sought help from many doctors, each agreeing that I have MVP, and prescribing different drugs for the problem. The drugs did not take care of it, nor did any therapy of any kind give me any relief. My irregular heart beat and panic attacks continued; my depression became worse, and life had no meaning.
Fortunately, I was referred to Dr. Yee Wing Tong, M.D., and after the first treatment, I experienced immediate relief. I was able to breathe quietly and comfortably for the first time in many years. I was so relaxed and I remember crying with relief. After so many years of complete despair, drugs, and depression, I am truly blessed to find Dr. Tong. Since receiving his treatment, my panic attacks have stopped, my heart beat is normal, I have more energy, and my depression is gone. As an added benefit, I have also no more bleeding from my gums , my dental hygienist is really surprised, and my last two checkups have been very good.
Recently, Dr. Tong introduced me to magnets. I began wearing the magnetic insoles and noticed increased energy. Then I purchased the mattress and my sleep has improved and my energy has been coming back better each day. I wear the magnets at different prescribed places, for example near my heart. This magnet completely calms me down, and if I do not wear it, I feel symptoms immediately. I am also very pleased with the electrical stimulation unit, as I have had a ringing in my ear for six months. The unit located it right away and stopped the ringing. I am so pleased with these products, along with Dr. Tong’s treatments.
