Successful Healing Process for Rheumatoid Arthritis
A male patient of age 88 came for treatment in 2011. The patientís back has been suffering from rheumatoid arthritis. He complained about overall back stiffness as well as fatigue in the lower back area. The patient suffered from high blood pressure (has been on medication). He also was diagnosed with swelling in his lower legs and carried a proton pump inhibitor for his stomach.

Dr. Brinkman has applied three acupunctural treatments a week so far. As a first result, the patient testified betterment after two treatments (less stiffness in the morning). Unfortunately, the patient is hesitant to herbal treatment which would promise additional success. The treatment is still in progress.

Note: The 88 year old patient appears to be in fairly good shape. He had a quadruple bypass surgery in July 2010 without any complications.
