Healing of Cervical Arthritis in Elderly Female
A female patient, age 83, had a medical history of cervical osteoarthritis characterized by extreme pain levels and severe restrictions of motion. She had gone through a variety of treatments (e.g. gold injections). None of those provided relief. The symptoms started in 2004 and were particularly located in the neck area. The patient arrived at Dr. Blaine’s office in 2009.

Dr. Blaine prescribed an exclusive treatment program with 12 herbal patches (2 days on and 1 day off) for a total of 6 weeks. The pain seemed to get a little worse during the first two weeks. As a result, Dr. Blaine increased the resting period without patch from one to two days. As a consequence, the pain level started to continuously decrease. The pain did not completely disappear during the treatment program but became reduced from 10 to 3. Two weeks after the patches had been completely eliminated the pain disappeared. It never came back ever since. The results have been sustained for two years now.

Note that Dr. Blaine had to impose of lot of convincing to keep the patient on the patches. Once the treatment had completely removed the pain the patient became ecstatic.

Successful of Healing of Bad Knees
A female patient, age 50, incurred two car accident and one fall within a one-year time frame. Both knees had been weakened due to the car accidents. After falling down three steps on to concrete, both knees had become swollen and inflamed. As a result, the patient could not walk.

Dr. Blaine applied a total of eight treatments in 2008 (two treatments per week for the first two weeks; one treatment a week for the following four weeks). It implied 12 herbal patches combined with electro acupuncture and moa (herbal heat directly or indirectly applied to the deficient area).

The results were remarkable. Both knees had completely healed after 6 weeks. Dr. Blaine continued with 4 additional maintenance treatments for another 4 weeks (combination of acupuncture and infrared heat). Those were meant to support the post treatment recovery.
