Re: Testimonial of Treatment
In February of 2005, I was diagnosed with a skin disorder called Lichens Planus. Lichens Planus is an uncommon skin disorder of unknown origin that may be triggered by an auto-immune disfunction. The disease is marked by small reddish/purple eruptions that appear allover the body and soft tissues areas including the mouth. The lesions itch and leave scars and I was told it could last anywhere from 18 months to several years. I previously had beautiful unmarked skin and my entire body including my mouth was affected.
After visiting several dermatologists over the course of a year, I was repeatedly told that the disease had to run its course and to keep using the prescribed steroid creams, which did not relieve the itching or prevent new eruptions. I was becoming increasing depressed and began to have frequent migraine headaches. A friend recommended I try acupuncture for the migraines and I went to FCIM for treatment in January of 2006. Dr. Yang was the physician I saw and while reviewing my medical history we discussed my battle with Lichens Planus. Dr. Yang believed he could help me and we began a course of treatment consisting of weekly acupuncture treatments and herbal remedies.
Several weeks after receiving treatments the itching subsided. Within a month, no new eruptions appeared and by the third month the scarring was beginning to fade dramatically. I believe that the combination of the acupuncture treatments and herbal remedy provided by Dr. Yang caused the Lichens Planus to go into remission.
It has now been almost 2-1/2 years since being treated by Dr. Yang and I have been symptom free and there is virtually no scarring from the disease. I also have been migraine free since the first acupuncture treatment. I have complete confidence in Dr. Yang’s expertise and am proud to provide this testimonial regarding my experience.
I am a 35 year old female. I have had Psoriasis since birth. As a young child, I had it on the elbows and knees, which later went away. Since before I can remember, I had it on my scalp and in the ears. I kept it under control with topical creams and a special bar of soap. But over the past several years, I have had an unusual amount of stress, which makes it worse. It spread onto my face more, which has become unbearable, unable to even wear makeup to cover it because it was scaly, flaky, itchy and very red and blotchy. The dermatologists would just give me steroidal cream, which eventually thins your skin, damaging it and causing premature aging.
Dr. Yang put me on this herbal formula 3 times a day that has cleared it up on my face 99%. I realize it will take a long time to get rid of it completely, but I’m able to live my life again normally. This wonderful formula is working on a very deep level, at the root of the problem. It is so encouraging to know that after taking these herbs for an extended period of time, that one day I will be able to stop taking them altogether and that I will not have to deal with the psoriasis ever again.
Thank you so much, Dr. Yang for your help with this life long disease. Because of you, I am able to live a normal productive life again.
Eczema and Allergies
Dear Dr Yang,
When I first came to the Florida College of Integrative medicine I made an appointment for the pain I was suffering in my right leg as a result of a fall on a wet floor. I had hopes for relief of my leg pain, yet I had no idea that you could effectively help my eczema.
I have had eczema since I was a young girl. Since then I have used creams and ointments. Eventually no matter how much I used them, they had stopped working. When the itching and scratching became unbearable and slightly, I was given a shot of a steroid. This would calm the eczema for a short time, but it would rectum within a month. Also, I stood under ultraviolet light and was given medication to treat allergies.
I wore gloves at night, gloves to wash dishes, gloves in the yard. One of my hobbies is scuba diving. My fingers would burn in the sun after I came out of the water. I began acupuncture and the herbs, my hand and feet no longer look like and alligator. I can wear sandals because I am not embarrassed by my feet. I go to sleep at night without inching because there is very little to scratch.
Thank you for providing relief for my eczema and leg pain. I will continue to come for acupuncture and my herbs and I will recommend you and the care I received to my friends, relatives and acquaintances.
