A 57 year old male presents with stiffness and soreness bilaterally in all joints of the upper and lower extremities. Symptoms are aggravated by walking, especially the ankle joints, which swell severely and produce extreme pain. He reports his condition is getting worse and that he had to leave his employment six months earlier and is now completely disabled. He has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis by his previous MD.
After TCM examination, he was given acupuncture treatment and prescribed LC Balancer, Java Sauce, and WHITEE Patches. At his next appointment, three days later, he reported that the swelling in his left ankle had disappeared within the first 24 hours, with other symptoms beginning to improve.
Continuing this protocol, after one week, he reported all symptoms had improved approximately 70%. With continued treatment and herbs for three additional weeks, he reports improvement at 80%.
He continues to improve at the time of this writing, and is planning to return to work soon. In his own words, he says the treatment has “given me my life back”.
