Positive impacts on our patients’ health
 

as of April 19, 2013

 

Update on one of my patients with fibroids:
44 treatments since May 3, 2012:

Patient is also on Chinese herbs (2-3 formulas a month).

Severe menstrual cramps have decreased to a level 1-2 (1-10 scale; 10 being highest).

Severe bloating has decreased to a level 1.

Mood is so much better than when she first started. She used to be extremely impatient and easily irritable.

Clots have decreased in size by 75%.

Menstrual cramps have decreased by up to 75%. “This last period was the best that she has ever had since her acupuncture treatments started.”

The patient’s severe menstrual cramps were so much improved that:

1. She didn’t have to lie on her side and put a pillow between her knees.
2. She had absolutely no lower back pain (first time ever)!!!
3. She didn’t have to stop cooking half-way through and lie down.
4. She didn’t call in sick to work and she totally felt fine enough to work through her entire menses.
5. Her constipation was tolerable.
6. No pain during intercourse.

This is one of my patients with fibroids who had surgery in the past for fibroids and has opted to not go through it again. Instead, she decided to go the “natural route” this time, so that she can go to the root of the problem.  She feels that the surgery did not treat the root of the problem because the fibroids came back.

44 treatments, some Chinese herbs, no invasive treatment, a better mood than she ever had in the past, stronger health overall and menstrual health, I can assure you that the patient is tremendously happy.

My happy patients = a very happy practitioner.

 

 

Update on my patient with anxiety:

 

He first started on 12/10/12.
After 17 treatments and about 3 bottles of Chinese herbal formulas specifically for anxiety, my patient feels an overall improvement of 80%.

The patient is a 28-year old male who had been suffering from severe anxiety for over 15 years. He was prozac for 4 years until 5 years ago. The patient also presented with acne.

Today during his 17th acupuncture treatment, the patient stated that he felt 100% improvement for 1+ week since our last treatment on 3/28. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest level of anxiety), his overall anxiety is at a level 3. He started with an 8. His anxiety returned last Monday 5 minutes before a major professional examination. Until that moment, he was feeling 100% better most of the time.

The patient informed me that when he did take Prozac, he only felt up to 25% improvement during those 4 years of medication. He stopped the medication because he did not feel significant improvement.

With acupuncture and Chinese herbs, the patient’s sleep has improved significantly. He sleeps through the night and he has stayed calm despite intense studying and preparation for his examination. According to the patient, he prefers the 80% improvement with Chinese medicine over a course of 4 months as opposed to the 25% improvement with Prozac over a course of 4 years.

Another note of improvement is that the patient’s acne is significantly diminished. His wife has commented on his overall mood and skin improvement.

This is another terrific example of the POWERS of Dr. Tan’s Balance Method and the APPROPRIATE Chinese herbal formula at work with a severe case of anxiety and insomnia.

 

Update on my patient with pain in the midback:

 

After one treatment, one of my military patients is able to sleep all night without any pain. He has been sleeping pain-free for the past 3 days. Overall 20% improved with just one treatment. Patient is very happy. He hadn’t slept without pain for over 3 months. Today’s his second treatment and he felt even more improvement.
Patient complained having “constant pain in all activities” during his first visit. Now his pain is intermittent and he has confidence that he will be another patient at our healing center who will GRADUATE from pain and suffering. He doesn’t want to live on Norco any longer. According to the patient, Norco causes him to feel drowsy, makes it difficult for him to focus, causes him to feel nauseous and it “messes him up” whenever he takes it. This patient has found true relief with the POWERS of Dr. Tan’s Balance Method acupuncture!
