Successful Resolution of Fibromyalgia
A 45 year old woman came for treatment of fibromyalgia which she developed after an auto accident in 2007. She had migraines, asthma, severe allergies, and pain all over.

After weekly treatment for 3 years, she no longer has fibromyalgia, asthma, allergies, or pain all over. She has a headache once in a while, but the migraines are completely gone. Her acupuncture treatment was accompanied by nutritional supplementation and great improvement in her diet.

Her medical doctor is amazed at the results. The patient comes for preventative maintenance every other week.
Successful Treatment of Skin Rash
A female patient aged 69 suffered from a skin condition which left big red patches all over her hands. Additionally, the skin was unusually dry. She had been taking the medication Coumadin after having a mitral valve replacement. She has used many things for skin, including steroid creams and many nutritional supplements, but they have not helped in the long run. She had noticed that eating sugar, chocolate, and gluten would exacerbate the rash. She then began a herbal treatment of Formula C and Pearl Capsules from Wei Laboratories. After three weeks of this treatment, the patient reported that the skin had improved dramatically and the hand rashes were almost gone. The patient was satisfied.
