Resolution of Seasonal Allergies and Hay Fever
A male patient, age 32, came for treatment in 2008. He had been diagnosed with seasonal allergies and hay fever. Symptoms included a plugged runny nose which caused sneezing. His eyes were itchy and running. The patient had suffered from the allergies a number of years. It always lasted between spring and the end of the summer. His location in the mountains contributed to the strength of the symptoms.

Dr. Kucheran started an herbal treatment cycle in June 2008 applying two weeks of an herbal intake formula. The program was repeated two more times in 2009 and 2010.

The outcome had been a true relief for the patient. In 2008, the symptoms had been cleared after the two week treatment (for the entire allergy season). In 2009, the allergy symptoms returned but at a less severe level. After the two weeks of treatment they disappeared again for the remainder of the season. In 2010, the allergy symptoms came back at an even less intense amount. Two weeks of the herbal remedy cleared it for the rest of the season. In 2011, the symptoms returned for two days only. No more remedy has been needed ever since.
Successful Treatment of COPD and Acid Reflux

Primary Condition 1: COPD, Shortness of Breath, Phlegm, Tight Chest (Lungs)

Comments: Specialized herbal formulas will strengthen the structure and function of the lungs to promote regrowth of lung tissue. A stronger herbal formula is recommended for severe forms of COPD in which the patient is using oxygen. This patient has other health complications that will slow down recovery of their lung conditions, so we recommend doing the GI treatment while using this lung treatment.

Secondary Condition 1: Acid Reflux, Poor Digestion, Gas, Hiccups, Stomach Pain, Abdominal Pain (GI Tract)

Acid reflux can be due to a cold stomach, which consists of poor blood supply and contraction of the stomach. Acid reflux may have burned the esophagus, causing shortness of breath. Weakness of the small and large intestines can result in poor digestion.

The herbal capsules will warm up the middle jiao (upper GI tract) to increase blood supply to the stomach and other liquid herbal formulas will repair degeneration in the upper GI tract and improve digestion.

Herbal capsules will improve small intestine function to help resolve poor digestion and other herbal capsules will increase contraction in the lower GI tract to eliminate constipation.


Treatment: November, 2011, chronic productive cough (thick grey phlegm), exhaustion, fatigue, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, weakness, acid reflux, poor digestion, abdominal cramps, & stomach pain, swollen ankles for years, difficulty walking 1-2 blocks, needed sleep in the afternoon, restricted social life.

All symptoms have improved. Can now walk 1 mile. Cough 95% better. No ankle swelling, no acid reflux.
