Dr. Knox applied one session of acupuncture only to relieve the patientís numbness. An additional three acupuncture treatments removed the other side effects of the cancer therapy (hot flashes and mouth sores). Also, herbal remedies were added to support the patientís blood health.
The results have been truly positive. A few acupuncture treatments removed all side effects of the anti cancer treatment. In addition, the application of the herbs supported a remarkable blood count after two weeks only (MD was very surprised about this).
The patient has been feeling better on all levels (very few occasional experiences of neuropathy in hands and feet). She maintains her quality of health with occasional acupuncture and continued application of herbs.
