Successful Healing of Osteoarthritis
A male patient, about 50 years old, came for treatment in 2005. He had been diagnosed with bilateral first Meta carpal phalangeal joint osteoarthritis.

An exclusive herbal treatment protocol was prescribed for one month. It completely resolved the issue for 6 months. A second round of the same herbal treatment was applied for three months. After two years of no symptoms, minor symptoms returned in his right thumb. Two weeks of an herbal protocol with herbal patches and a liquid herbal supplement cured the patient once and for all. The positive outcome has been maintained ever since without additional treatment.
Successful Resolution of Rotator Cuff Syndrome
A male patient, age 66, came for treatment in August 2010. She suffered from shoulder arthritis in her right arm. Further diagnoses identified the rotator cuff syndrome in general and the calcific tendinosis of the rotator cuff in particular (could not lift arm above shoulder level). The patient incurred a severe pain level (8 out of 10) as well as a restricted range of motion. His pain would not allow him to receive continued sleep at night. He could not use his right arm at work.

Dr. Kucheran applied a combined treatment program composed of chiropractic adjustments on the cervical spine as well as transverse frictional massages, active relief on the right shoulder and electro laser acupuncture. At the end of the program herbal patches were applied for one week. The complete treatment lasted for a total of six months (2-3 sessions for the first three months, once a week for the last three months).

The results have been very positive. The pain level was reduced by 70% at first. The range of motion improved greatly. The application of the herbal patches at the end removed the remaining pain and provided the patient with a full range of motion. The patient has been very happy ever since.
Successful Treatment of COPD and Acid Reflux
Patient: Female, 75
Chief Complaints: COPD, Persistent Cough, Phlegm, Tight Chest
Other Conditions: GI Tract (Acid Reflux, Dry Mouth, Poor Digestion, Gas, Hiccup, Stomach Pain, Abdominal Pain); Kidney (Fatigue, Lack of Strength, Wake to Urination, Water Retention); Liver (Mood Swings, Anxiety, Anger, Stress, Frustration, Headaches, Dizziness, Insomnia); Spleen (Lower Extremity Edema, Body Heaviness, Water Retention); Musculoskeletal (Back and Neck Pain) Heart (Irregular Heartbeat); Small Intestine (Gluten Intolerance, Food Allergies, Poor Memory, Confusion); Allergy (Sinus Problem, Stuffy Nose, Back Dripping); Other (High Blood Pressure, Dry Skin)
Past Conditions: Anemia, Chicken Pox, Influenza, Measles, Migraines, Mump, Pancreatitis, Pneumonia, Scarlet Fever, Thyroid Disorder, Whooping Cough

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.
