Successful Elimination of Cold Obstruction Syndrome
A female patient had worked for more than 40 years in the freezing section of a deli store. Due to the low temperature she was diagnosed with a cold obstruction syndrome. It slows down the flow of QI in the channels which had created severe pain in the joints, muscles and tendons. Besides, her overall body constitution has been cold for many years.

A first treatment protocol had been applied in 2008 for a length of about 3 months. It had been composed of acupuncture and herbal patches. As a result, the pain had been eliminated completely.

A shorter treatment protocol of a little more than one month was applied to the patient in 2011 (i.e. 3 years later). It had been composed again of acupuncture and an herbal intake formula and served as a preventive step to eliminate any possibility of pain. Given the overall constitution of the patient's body she has been advised to do the preventive treatment every 2-3 years.

Before applying the alternative healthcare approach the patient had tried Western medicine which had not helped her. Reason: Western medicine does not include the concept of dealing with temperature. It has been based on chemical drug prescription which does not clear the problem, and produces negative side effects because of its exclusive aim to eliminate inflammations.

Successful Healing of Rheumatoid Arthritis
A woman, 58 year of age, was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 2007. She is a school teacher and had just started her second career two months prior to that. The patient indicated pain and swelling in every joint of her body (e.g. ankles). She could not even walk anymore. As a result, she had to be treated at her home.

A combined treatment composed of acupuncture and herbal Chinese medicine was applied to eliminate rheumatic heat disorders. The clinical treatment implied a strong function to relieve pain. It also reduced inflammation and swelling. The anti-rheumatoid function of the approach removed disorders of the connective tissue such as joints, muscles, vursae, tendents and vibrious tissues. It helped to expel the heat and dispurse the painful obstruction syndrome to reduce the swelling and eliminate the pain.

The treatment was applied during a six months period. A combination of herbal patches of different sizes, herbal intake formulas and acupuncture was employed. In addition, a hot wax treatment was imposed three times a day.

The patient gradually improved. She started to walk again after one month of treatment with increasing distances over time. After three months the patient managed to drive a car. She managed to pick up her position as school teacher after three months. The pain had been reduced by about 80% by then. The swelling as well as the redness in the joints had been lowered by about 90% by then.

Dr. Johnson implemented the complete treatment program at the patientís residence. Ever since the treatment finished (in 2007) the patient has no recurring signs or symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
