What People Say
A headache that lasted for 5 years was improved by 70% only after 1 week’s treatment
Miss J. had had a headache every day for 5 years. It was usually on the right side of her head but sometimes it could be on the whole head. She described the pain as “a dull/stabbing pain”. She had all sorts of tests and scans. She was told that the inflammation marker in her blood test was too high. She had taken a lot of different painkillers and they were not working. She came to us and started to take a herbal treatment for the course of 5 weeks. It was amazing when she showed improvement to our treatment and she said she felt 70% better after one week’s treatment. Now she has finished 3 weeks of treatment and she told us she doesn’t have a headache every day. Sometimes the headache is only little and the pain doesn’t last long. So she scored a 80% improvement.
Neck / Shoulder pain
Mr R came to us because of a neck and shoulder pain. The pain was burning; it felt like it came from deep inside the bones. Meanwhile, the pain radiated down to his left arm. He also complained about the numbness on his right thumb. The pain badly disturbed his sleep and he had to wake up every hour. He’s been diabetic for 15 years and his mouth often feels dry. The X-Ray results showed that the C3,C4,C5 vertebrae had slipped out of position. He had taken different pain killers but was not feeling any better. The hospital doctors told him that the only remaining option was operation. But it would be highly risky in his conditions and he might get paralysed after operation.
Mr.R started to take a course of a six week treatment including both acupuncture and herbs. On the first week after treatment, he only felt a slight reduction of pain, and still had a broken sleep every hour. But on the second week, the numbness on his right thumb was getting much better, and he could sleep for four hours without waking up. The third week was the turning point; he felt that his shoulder pain and his left arm pain were much better. He said the pain was constantly there before the treatment, but now it comes and goes, particularly the burning sensation which had significantly reduced. Even when he still has pain, it hasn’t lasted long. He also felt amazed that his dry mouth was much better. He was very satisfied with the outcome of our treatment and sent us a thank-you card.
Pompholyx Eczema and Nerve pain on Feet, Knee pain
Mrs. K had had skin problems on both her feet for 10 months. It normally started with blisters on her feet with intensive itchiness with feelings of burning and pins and needles. She was diagnosed with “Pompholys Eczema” and “Nerve ending pain” by her GP. She was given steroid tablets to take for 1 week, and steroid cream to use. Not wanting to rely on steroids cream, she came for treatment. We gave her both acupuncture and herbs, and at the same time treated her knee pain. She saw a big improvement after treatment and happily wrote her experience for us.
Mr H. suffering from Sinusitis
Mr. H (89 year old) has had block nose and dry eyes for 10 years. He went to see his GP and was diagnosed as sinusitis. He was given a spray to use. But there was no any improvement. After we examined him and made Traditional Chinese Medicine diagnosis, we told him and his wife about our herbal medicine treatment plan. We told him that we would give him bags of mixed herbs which were tailor made for him, and he would need to boil the herbs with water every day and make tea or soup to drink. The taste might be very bitter. He said he wouldn’t mind the taste as long as it would make him better. He has taken the treatment for 4 weeks now and is very happy with the results. His wife kindly wrote down the progress in her words as below.to the left.
Mrs A suffering from infertility
Mrs. A (36 year old) has been trying for a baby for 7 years. She had a history of ectopic pregnancy. She has taken herbal medicine from us on and off since 2010. We had told her that it would be more effective if she could carry on the treatment without any break. She said she felt very happy with the treatment but it would be difficult for her to commit herself to come on a more regular base. She said she refused to take IVF offered by NHS as she had a strong brief in natural treatment. Oh bless her, she finally got pregnant! She came today and happily showed off her big tummy. She is 5 month pregnant!
Mrs sufering from weight problem
Just when we opened the shop this early morning, a woman came in with a big smile to say hello to us and asked us if we could remember her. She told us she came here twice and bought two boxes of herbal tea each time. She lost half a stone within one month. Since she came here and talked to us, she started to eat healthier. She used to skip breakfast, feeling tired. But now she is having a good breakfast as we suggested. We often tell our patients about the importance of three regular meals a day. We would suggest to our patients when and how to eat according to their individual needs. She told us she is doing what we suggested and she feels and has more energy. She came here today to buy some different herbal tea to maintain her health. She is happy to leave notes for us.
Mr K Suffering from Back Pain
Mr. K came here with a severe back pain on 30th of June. He had had lower back pain for four years. But the pain had become severe for three weeks before he came to see us. The pain started from his lower back and went down to the back of his right leg. It was often worse on the right side. He went to see his GP and was given pain killers to take. He was also referred to a physio, but he felt worse afterwards. He then decided to take acupuncture treatment after he had a consultation with us. After the 1st session, he felt slightly less pain on his back but no obvious relief on the leg. After the 2nd session, he felt much less pain on both back and leg. He started to feel more confident with the treatment. After the 4th session, his leg pain was gone and he only occasionally got slight back pain. He went back to his job as a mechanic. He carried on and had 7 sessions in total. He finished his treatment with complete satisfaction. We also felt happy for him. Here are the words he left for us.
