Testimonial – Cathy Rikhye
I was diagnosed with sarcoidosis, a relatively rare autoimmune
system disorder of unknown etiology or cure in 1987. Sarcoidosis can be asymptomatic and is
undetectable unless one is receives an x-ray in which lymph glands may be
enlarged, which was the case with me. In
the large majority of cases, the condition vanished, but in approximately 20%
of cases, there may be a recurrence, and in a fractional minority, the
condition can attach major organs and be fatal.
In more serious cases, the condition is treated with steroids....
In March, 2005 I began receiving acupuncture aimed at
balancing my autoimmune system. For three
quarters of a year I continued acupuncture sessions. I really had no concrete proof of whether
there was any change in my condition. In
December, 2005 I went for my annual check-up and asked my internist to include
the test for angiotensin co-enzyme (ACE) in my blood work. The results came out the next week. My level was down to 75…. Almost within the
normal range. It was the first time in a decade that there had been any
positive change in my low levels of inflammation indicated by ACE levels.
It can be argued that this was coincidence – that a sudden,
significant change for the better in my blood levels indicating a reduction in sarcoidosis
was part and parcel of the disease, which characteristically appears and goes
into remission or disappears with no explanation that modern medicine has been
able to provide. While this may, indeed,
be the case, it would also be reasonable to conclude that as the only major
change in my environment or medical treatment had been the introduction of
acupuncture, there was a correlation between the two. For me, it is the only explanation that makes
sense and, whatever the Western Medical preferences for treatment or lack of treatment,
I am continuing to receive acupuncture treatments specifically aimed at
creating autoimmune and systemic balance.
I think it works
I have started to experience palpitations in
2011 with episodes of full tachycardia, often happening at night. At the time, my cardiologist ruled out any
malignant issue and advised there was virtually nothing he could do to relieve
me from it.
the symptoms got worse, and I was often awakened at night. A visit to a second cardiologist detected a
44mm aneurysm caused by a bicuspid aorta valve. Although typically
asymptomatic, in my case the consistent anxiety produced by the combination of
discomfort and the diagnosis was taking a toll on my quality of life. Western
medicine offered me medications to lower the blood pressure, in the hope it
would hinder the growth of the aneurysm, but nothing to cope with the
Acupuncture did. Thanks to Dr. Kang's skills and dedication,
in about a year of treatments (started from Oct. 2014) the palpitations have
entirely disappeared. The benefits of
Dr. Kang's acupuncture are not limited to it.
My insomnia is gone, my approach to my condition has improved, and
-overall- my health. I couldn't have
been more surprised when I walked in for treatment with a cold and walked out
completely fine. Although not an expert
in acupuncture, I can affirm with no hesitation that it is a greatly efficient
treatment with no side effect. My cardiologist supports me in getting these
treatments, and found me very well in my last check up (Oct. 2015). Thank you,

“The ECO came out my aneurysm measures
4cms, but the doctor wants me to run a CAT scan in June (2016) again because it
NEVER happened that an aneurysm shrunk. Now if the aneurysm is smaller, it
would be a FIRST in history! And you and acupuncture will have the merit for

I am very happy to share my testimony as Jia's
acupuncture treatments have taken me from a 185 lb. pre-diabetic on
Metformin and Glyburide and an A1c reading of 6.4 to165 lbs., off of my
meds and averaging an A1c reading of 6.0!
She has also
helped to remove a fungus on my right large toe, taken away my lower
back pain, improved my eye sight and helped shrink my enlarged prostate!
my blood pressure, she helped lower it to around 120/70, which is
pretty good for a 74 yr. old man!!! She has also helped to lower stress
in my life and shows great care and concern for her patients!
