Patient:

39 year old Male.

Symptoms:

Patient diagnosed in 1990 at
a nationally renowned clinic. Onset in 1990. Original symptoms:

Could

medical treatment for this condition. Patient experienced this condition
several times per year.

Treatment:

Treatment consisted of daily
acupuncture and two herbal formulas.

Result:

Since the first treatment in 2000,
the onsets per year have been reduced in number and severity so that

Beginning treatment at the very earliest onset has proven to have the
strongest result. He then does not have to go to stay in hospital to
be on pain medication. Instead he is able to actually continue to go
to work.

*Note:

this is an atypical result. Usually the average is 3 –
4 treatments plus an herbal formula.
