Testimonies From Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Dear Dr. Lee,

I am writing this letter to thank you for all you have done in assisting me in treating my condition. In November 1999 at the age of 25, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis following and episode of complete numbness and weakness in the entire left side of my body. In addition to this, I developed Optic Neuritis, which caused a loss of vision in my right eye around the same time. During my visits to the Neurologist who diagnosed my condition, he wanted to put me on beta-interferons, a medication which would consist of weekly injections, "hopefully slowing the progress of the disease" as he put it. He explained  to me that this medication would not help my condition right now, and that I may never improve at all. He told me that the injections were designed to slow the progress of the disease, not to prevent any further episodes. This was unacceptable to me, and I decided not to take any medication, but to seek out other therapies such as nutritional and chiropractic, as well as massage therapy. At this point, I have not yet tried acupuncture. My current symptoms gradually improved over a couple of months and my vision continued to improve over one year which I believe was due to these therapies.

In April 2000, another exacerbation of the MS occurred, this time much more severe, affecting the right side of my body and my left eye. Two months later, and not improving at all, I came across your name and began to receive acupuncture twice a week as well as herbal treatments. I was initially told by you that I would start feeling better in about 2-3 months, but I began a rapid recovery by the third treatment, which was one and half weeks later. I was not even able to drive myself to the first visit, but by the third visit, I was driving to your office on my own and was able to perform most daily tasks like before. I am still amazed at how fast I began to feel better.

Since I have started the acupuncture treatments in June 2000, my balance, coordination, and feeling on both sides of my body have been completely restored, my vision has returned about 95%, and I am completely independent and able to carry on with my life like before. I am now completing a degree in massage therapy and I am looking forward to working in a medical setting, bringing wellness to others who are suffering from various illnesses and conditions.

It has now been almost two years since my last episode of MS, and I am confident that I will be able to keep it under control. I attribute this mainly to you, Dr. Lee, and the acupuncture treatments, which I am still receiving once a week, as well as a complete lifestyle change including dietary changes, exercise, and stress reduction. I have left a high stress career and made other significant changes regarding the stressors in my life.

I am happy to say that I am almost 100% recovered from the symptoms of MS as well as  100% free of any conventional medications for MS, and even though there is no "cure" for this condition, I believe I have found the next best thing. Thank you again for you patience, compassion, and for helping me through a very difficult time.

Sincerely,
Bryan

Dear Dr. Lee,

I am writing you this letter to express my deepest gratitude for all you have done for me. It is almost one year after my diagnosis with multiple sclerosis and I feel great! Your sincere effort and kind words have kept my chin up, and I hope this letter inspires many to feel the wonderful benefits of acupuncture.

In May 1998, I was diagnosed with MS. I was hospitalized because I lost all coordination, strength, and movement of my left arm and leg. In July 1998, I started acupuncture treatment twice a week. I started taking herbs and vitamins to repair my immune system. Within months, my strength, power, and coordination slowly began to improve. My nervous system will never be the same, but because of this treatment I can live with MS happily. Overall, I feel that Dr. Lee has helped me tremendously with my daily symptoms. I feel at least 75% better than that first day in Dr. Lee's office. Today my muscle strength, balance, and coordination amazes me. I am energized and anxiously await my next treatment.

I look back and I do not believe that I once used a cane and could not balance two objects in y hands at the same time. I could not drive or climb steps. Today, I can try to do anything I wish!

I recommend this special treatment for all who suffer or know someone suffering from mutable sclerosis. It will amaze you how your quality of life will improve.

Once again, thank you for all you have done for me.

Sincerely,
Lucy

Dr. Lee,

I cannot emphasis enough how acupuncture treatments have alleviated the symptoms of my present medical condition, Multiple Sclerosis.

I was recently in an automobile accident. under normal circumstances, stress of this nature could very well trigger an MS episode. I was very fortunate that I did not experience an MS attack even though I was under duress.

Since being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1998, the lesions on my brain have significantly reduced in size. I no longer experience the same pain and discomfort as when I initially came to you in 1998. This disease left debilitating and painful symptoms to my left side. With your expertise, my health has improved, and it is very apparent. It is of my opinion that these improvements are largely due to your vast knowledge, expertise, and your acupuncture treatments.

 To date, I have not had an (MS) exacerbation since receiving your treatments. I still highly recommended this therapy to others with MS. Many are reluctant towards this treatment because they are afraid of needles. I have never experienced pain or discomfort from acupuncture treatments. The results are positive and I have benefited greatly from them.

Warmest Regards,
Michele
