Dr. Yang,

Thank you so much for your phone call to check on how I am doing. It was very kind of you. I am sorry I have not called you back sooner. After seeing you in Feb. I went out of town for two weeks, then came down with a cold/ flu for two weeks which took me into March. During this month I have been doing extremely well. No acne, minimal allergies and my overall health has been very good. I have not been in to see you because I have been doing so well. I will most certainly come to see you should I begin to experience problems again, but you have done such a wonderful job of alleviating my acne, allergies, sleeping issues and stress level that I am doing very well.

Thank you again for your kindness. You are welcome to share my letter with any of your patients.*

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to Dr. Yang for taking extra time and effort to help me this past spring. I would also like to pass on the heartfelt appreciation from several students he has helped with the same problem.

Ever since the age of 14 I was faced with acne and now at age 23 I am still faced with it. Appearing mostly on my face and somewhat on my upper back, my acne seemed to flare up around my menstrual cycle. Soaps I have tried include Proactiv solution, Neutrogena, Cetaphil, and Clean and Clear. Most of which severely dried my skin or did not help my acne at all. I have also been prescribed oral antibiotics such as Erythromycin, Tetracycline, and Minocycline, which I took one pill of, 3 times a day. In most cases these antibiotics had several side effects including sun sensitivity, headaches and abdominal cramping. In addition to oral prescriptions I have also used topical creams and gels such as Retin-A gel, Differin cream, as well as Benzoyl Peroxide cream. I used both prescription modalities from the age of 14 to age 21. At age 21 I decided to decrease my prescriptions because I was no longer seeing an improvement in my complexion and I had been on and off several antibiotics since the age of 14. By age 22 I was no longer taking any prescriptions and started seeking out other options.

I entered the Florida College of Integrative Medicine in August of 2005 and immediately started getting regular treatments at the clinic. Focusing mostly on my complexion I was advised to change my diet, however it wasn’t until this past spring when Dr. Yang approached me about an herbal formula when I started to really see an improvement in my acne. I began taking a custom made formula specifically for me in January of 2007. I took this formula 3 times a day for a week and was advised to see Dr. Yang again after one week on the formula. After one week, I had seen some reduction in redness, but still had small papules. Dr. Yang responded by altering the formula and I tried it again for another week. Once I had finished that round he again altered the formula slightly and gave me this same formula for 3 rounds. By mid March I was off the formula completely and had seen a remarkably big improvement in my complexion overall. I no longer had white or red papules on my face or back. Several people I have been in contact with have noticed the improvement and asked me what I did. I have received compliments from both friends and family, and it feels good to not have to worry about talking to people, because I don’t have the acne I once did, that they would stare at. I feel more confident and happy to have been able to conquer this problem with the help of Dr. Yang.

I really appreciate the time Dr. Yang took in approaching me about his herbal formula that he had to treat acne. I know he has been very successful in treating many students in our school. In addition, I know if it wasn’t for him, today I would still have bad acne.

Sincerely, *

When I first entered the Florida College of Integrative Medicine (FCIM) in January 2007 I had been dealing with acne for almost 10 years. I started getting treatments for my acne in February and, due to Dr. Yang’s expertise in customizing herbal formulas, I started seeing a noticeable difference in my complexion within a week.

I was thrilled! My acne began when I was about 13 years old and simply never let up. It started my face, but then progressed to breakouts on my back, upper arms, and chest. It was uncomfortable and difficult to manage. My breakouts seemed to be made slightly worse with diet and menses, but nothing seemed to make them better. As a teenager I tried benzoyl peroxide, Differin gel, Neutrogena soaps, Clean and Clear, Proactiv, Murad, and even topical and oral antibiotics like Erythromycin (often in large doses). While I was with my dermatologist I was recommended all of these products, often in combination, but even when I was very studious about taking care of my skin, my acne never truly went away.

At 18 I moved to Florida to start my undergraduate degree and simply decided that enough was enough with chemicals. I let plain soap and sunshine do what they could and tried to pretend that it didn’t bother me. I had given up all hope of ever having a clear complexion.

Luckily, 4 years later I encountered Dr. Yang at FCIM. He started me on his herbal remedy in February of 2007. Each week he would question me about my progress and how I felt, and each week he would customize my herbs to make sure they would have their maximum effectiveness. My acne was very stubborn and it took almost 3 months to get my complexion to stabilize. I certainly didn’t mind because with every week that went by I noticed fewer and smaller breakouts, and even the redness and scarring from previous breakouts was disappearing! Now, 6 months later (3 months of herbs, 3 months of observation to make sure my complexion had stabilized), I am nearly acne-free.

The ability to manage my complexion is now a reality for me. It is a very nice feeling to wake up in the morning and feel comfortable with how I look. It’s even nicer to know that my acne will not return because Dr. Yang’s herbs have treated the cause of the acne, and not simply its symptoms (like so many of the “usual” acne medications do).

I am grateful to Dr. Yang for his time and effort. Every time someone notices how much my complexion has improved, I tell them about Dr. Yang. Even now I am trying to get a few of my friends to come and see him for the same problem!

Thank you, Sincerely, *

I am writing this letter to thank Dr. Yang for all the help he has given me. I have had allergy problems for more than 20 years that had recently become so severe that it was affecting my nose, eyes, and ears. I had regular nasal congestion and discharge, could not smell, bad post nasal drip, itching of the eyes and ears, headache, and back pain. It got worse during allergy seasons. Medicine has helped, but with limited results. The next season it would come right back, again and again, every year.

Since March 2006, I visited Dr. Yang for treatment with acupuncture and Herbal formulas for a few months. Now I have no allergy attacks, even during the allergy seasons. I have no nasal congestion or discharge, itching eyes or ears. I can smell again and have no more post nasal drip. In addition, I have not had one headache and my back pain has vastly improved.

By the way, my sister and my son also had similar problems with allergies including nasal congestion and discharge. They too, shared the herbal formulas that Dr. Yang made for me. They have both experienced the same great results.

The acupuncture and Herbal formulas helped me so much.

I am grateful to you help. Thank you Dr. Yang,*

Having had a persistent cough since I had pneumonia in 2001 it was a great relief to have found Dr. Yang.

Before Dr. Yang I went to the Pulmonary Center who gave me inhalators and nasal sprays. I also had a Broncoscopy at the hospital. After all this they referred me to the ear, nose and throat center who said it was acid reflux! Nothing worked and I still had my cough. It seemed nobody could help me.

I met Dr. Yang when he did an introductory talk on Acupuncture at my place of work. Thinking that I had nothing to lose I decided to give Acupuncture a try. I also consulted my mother who is Chinese and she said Acupuncture worked for her and suggested I try it. So in September 2007 I made an appointment with Dr. Yang and he said he could help me.

After a couple of months I felt no positive effects and still had the annoying cough. I was even wondering whether this would help at all and felt like giving up, but nevertheless I continued with the treatment. Now, eventually after almost a half of year, I am beginning to feel better. Some days I do not cough at all, but there are also some days when I do. My coughing is getting less and less and I can definitely say Acupuncture has helped me.

I am being treated once per week together with Chinese herbs. After being treated I always feel totally relaxed and leave feeling positive that I will be eventually cured.

Thank you Dr. Yang*

My wife and I had our first child in January of 2003, and noticed almost immediately that she had very sensitive skin. After she was wheened from breast milk we had some difficulties with certain food allergies that would make her skin break out in red patches. We were told that she had eczema and to pay special attention to the foods that we gave her. We found that she was allergic to several different types of foods, and a breakout would always follow. It would migrate from place to place so we weren’t sure what to do. I have some experience with herbal medicine, but had never treated a child and really wasn’t sure about experimenting on my own. The first year of her life the eczema tended to stay on her legs and behind. The second year it spread to her belly and finally affected her eyelids. That was when I was introduced to Xu Guang Yang (Dr. Yang) at the Florida College of Integrative Medicine. He shared with us his previous experience in treating similar diseases with children and offered to make an herbal formula to help to clear up her skin. He was very good with our daughter and formed a bond immediately which made her more receptive to taking the herbs he prescribed. After only a couple of weeks of herbal treatment her eyelids had cleared up, what a relief! He had also informed us that some of the foods that were in her normal diet were also contributing to these breakouts. We kept up with the diet and also a steady prescription of herbal medicine. The problem seemed to be gone and on top of that she had lost her allergies to foods. We were thrilled, not only was he able to help us with her skin condition, but her also helped to eliminate her food allergies. We are very greatfull to Dr. Yang and will continue to seek advice and treatment from him in the future. Sincerely,*

Dr. Yang,

I want to thank you for giving me back my life. When I met you on February 2, I could barely walk and my husband was ready to get me a wheelchair. The pain in my right leg was excruciating and I had been suffering from sciatica for more than 5 months. Thirty years ago I had an attack of sciatica and went to a Western doctor. He put me on anti-inflammatory drugs and muscle relaxants that affected my esophagus. I could not swallow; the drug effect was as bad as the sciatica. Unfortunately, I was left with permanent nerve damage in my right foot, a constant tingling and loss of feeling. After only 8 of your acupuncture sessions the sciatica was gone.

I could walk, go up and down steps … and sleep on either my right or left side without the severe discomfort I had been experiencing. You brought about a miraculous recovery in a very short period of time.

I became fascinated with the insight into Traditional Chinese Medicine that you shared with me. You explained that my main problem was a severe Kidney Yin deficiency. This lack of balance was causing my body an assortment of other problems that had taken a back seat to the sciatica. The most serious was debilitating arthritis pain in both of my hands. Because my husband and I have a small goat dairy, I needed good strong hands to milk the goats.

Although the pain was bad, my knuckles had begun to enlarge and there was redness and swelling. I was afraid that the condition would eventually cause more deformity and lack of movement. I felt like an old lady before my time (I am 67). You began working with my arthritis and the Kidney Yin deficiency. I was startled to learn that I had numerous other symptoms that were typical of this condition.

My body was falling apart. Terrible allergies caused red itchy eyes and a severe post nasal drip that left me constantly hoarse, gurgling, and coughing. Night sweats were so awful that I would wake up several times each night — completely drenched from head to foot. I hated to go to bed because the sweats were so uncomfortable.

My muscles ached from neck to shoulders, down through my back and into my hips. The muscles often went into a spasm and made it impossible to move. I bought portable heat pads and wore them constantly. My husband worked with massage. Nothing seemed to help. I had no energy and felt completely exhausted.

The acupuncture treatments for sciatica, arthritis, and allergy, along with your carefully selected herbs, have given me back my health and restored my life. The red itchy eyes are a thing of the past. No more coughing. No muscle pain. No more dreaded night sweats. The post-nasal drip is clearing up and arthritic fingers are once again nimble and able to function efficiently. For the first time in 5 years I have wonderful energy and feel an exuberance for life. I feel at least 30 years younger, without any prescription drugs or over the counter drugs — and their dreaded and detrimental effects. I take nothing for my health except your nourishing herbs.

My Kidney Yin is improving, becoming stronger — YIN IN BALANCE WITH YANG — You are helping my body to heal itself. You have turned my life around and there are no words to thank you enough but I will try anyway!

Thank you, thank you, thank you,*

Back Pain

Dr. Yang,

I just want to let you know how much you have helped me. My life has changed so much in just six weeks with your help and knowledge. I can do things I haven’t done in two years. I can smile and laugh again with my family and friends. I owe you a world of gratitude for all you’ve done. I will refer you to everyone I know and hope your life will be richly blessed for all you do for others.

You are appreciated!

Thank-you! Thank-you! Thank-you!

Dear Dr. Yang,

Acupuncture treatment was suggested to help my mother cope with her long term depression and sleep disturbance, after 50 years of torment. For 35 years, since she was 18 years old, epilepsy plagued her monthly. This affected her personal and family relationships with others. She continually battled frustration, anger and sadness. It even went to the extent of interfering with her marriage creating animosity, resentment, loneliness and isolation from others.

Due to the continual anxiety, her sleep patterns became very erratic and disturbed. She would experience terrible nightmares, awaken frequently and not be able to return to restful sleep. As a result, this left her with tremendous anxiety, feelings of intense anger, animosity and high blood pressure.

After experiencing your exceptional ‘Shen’ acupuncture treatment (Dr. Yang’s protocol treatment), you have given her back her life. At 72 years of age, she no longer experiences those vivid terrorizing dreams which kept her awake all night.

Her mood has vastly improved. The feelings of sadness and depression have lifted and her anger has almost disappeared, allowing her to be calm and focused, flexible to experience life that she once missed.

I am very thankful for your expertise and for helping me. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am to acupuncture and you for giving me back her life.*

I have had depression with severe fatigue for a long time and I had been taking medicine for depression for about 16 years. Now I have stopped taking medicine and gotten greater result from electric acupuncture with Dr. Yang.

I had depression with stress since about 20 years old. Starting from 16 years ago, I had been taking medicine for depression. The medicine helped me, but it is not easy for me to take on an everyday schedule of a long period of time. If I decrease the amount or have forgotten to take the medication, my depression worsens and my emotions are easily changed. I always wanted to sleep, but I just can’t seem to be able to fall asleep and that disturbed the quality of my life. I want to change and I wish I could find a different way of changing.

My wife understands that acupuncture and Chinese medicine may be able to help me. And because she has gotten good result from Chinese medicine with Dr. Yang about her health problems, she suggested me to try acupuncture.

At the beginning, I feel little better after many sessions from other but I still have stress, fatigue and always wanted to sleep, and I still need to take medicine. The acupuncture works but it is slow. From my wife, I know Dr. Yang has special protocol for depression and have helped many people who have the same problems. So I made the decision to visit the Dr. Yang for help.

Dr. Yang treated me twice a week. I felt very relaxed after every treatment and my stress and depression improved after a couple of weeks of treatment. During following treatments, I began decreasing the medicine and after a while, I successfully stopped the medicine for depression that I had taken for 16 years. I kept doing some more treatment of electric acupuncture after stopping the medicine for about a few months and at that time, my sleeping problems and fatigue problem improved.

I’m very grateful that I was to be able to meet Dr. Yang.

Thank you, Dr Yang,*

Digestive disorder

I am writing this in reference to Dr. Yang treatment for me from May 13, 2009 thru October 1st, 2009. He treated me for acid reflux and anxiety. He helped me tremendously during this short period of time and I highly commend him for how he helped me. Both with his medicine, technique, acupuncture and also his manner towards me. He was gentle, calming, soothing, and helped me get my mind stronger about myself. I would recommend him highly in his field to anyone that needs help for whatever he specializes in. He is truly also a lovely human being.

I am grateful for him as he helped me get started on my road to recovery.

Dear Dr. Yang,

I am writing this letter to thank you for all the help you have given me, I have had acid reflux for 20 years that has become so severe recently that it was disturbing my sleep. I had imaging studies performed; yet no diagnosis could be made. Medication helped but I had to take it constantly. I had acupuncture done elsewhere with limited results. After receiving treatment from you for a few months, I have not had any reflux, heartburn, nausea or problems sleeping for a couple of months now. In addition to sleeping better, my anxiety levels have greatly reduced and my allergies have improved. I have also been very impressed with your professionalism and concern for your patients.

I’m living proof that Oriental Medicine can treat severe menstrual pain and severe menstrual problems. Dr. Xuguang Yang is helping with the cause of the pain, not just the pain. Dr. Yang’s treatments have caused no negative side-effects like the one’s I experienced when taking all those pharmaceutical pain killers. Chinese Medicine is well-known in general for having much less side effects than Western Medicine. My pain level was high enough that Oxycodone often had no effect in many instances, and an emergency room nurse gave me Dilaudid to treat the pain in one incident. The nurse said it was the strongest pain killer they had, and even that did not remove all the pain, but it helped tremendously. That one incident was by no means the only time I suffered that much pain.

I occasionally have some pain now, but the pain level is low enough that even liquid Tylenol will remove it. I believe the reason for that pain is simply because my menses are irregular due to being perimenopausal which makes it difficult to time the intake of the herbs properly. If the herbs are taken starting about two days before menses, there is no pain or almost no pain.

Before I met Dr. Xuguang Yang, I had already been to several other practitioners in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and had received inconsistent results. I knew from the times I received good results and my studies that all I needed was someone who knew enough to help with my case. My case was exceptionally difficult to properly diagnose and treat in TCM.

Some texts such as The Hysterectomy HOAX would lead you to think Chinese herbs don’t help with menstrual problems, but I believe Stanley West stated that Chinese herbs didn’t work simply because he saw only patients for which the Chinese medical treatment didn’t work. I believe this was due to the TCM practitioners’ lack of understanding how to treat their cases, because there is ample documentation that reveals that Chinese Medicine indeed treats severe menstrual problems, but that these problems are not easy to treat.

An OB/GYN had already told me that if I underwent surgery for endometriosis, I would have to be put on a hormone treatment afterwards that Dr. Stanley West did not like. The same OB/GYN confessed to me that endometriosis always comes back. These statements told me that the best she could do for me was buy me time. I had already read online testimonials of the serious side affects people were experiencing from having gone through this Western mainstream treatment, so I was very leery of this approach.

I have one more set of important information to add: there are many reproductive problems we women in America think is normal that Chinese Medicine knows are symptoms of health problems. I’m stating this for the sake of teenage girls and young women in hopes that they will never have to go through all the suffering I have. With this knowledge hysterectomies would be rare instead of common events. Some symptoms that we commonly experience that Chinese Medicine eliminates with little or no side effects include the following:

1. PMS

2. All menstrual pain, including endometriosis

3. Irregular menstrual cycles

4. Menses that last under four days or more than seven days.

5. Breast distention

6. Premenstrual bloating

7. Heavy bleeding

8. Spotting

9. Discharge a color other than blood red (no black, brown, bright red, etc.)

10. Tasting bile before menses

11. Morning sickness

12. Infertility

There is one caveat to the treatment of these problems. Often the difficulty level in understanding how to treat these problems is high. The person who referred me to Dr. Yang is also an Oriental Medical Doctor, and she told me that all people she referred to him had very good results. She referred people to him that she could not help. I have high confidence in Dr. Xuguang Yang’s ability to help with all these symptoms. Dr. Yang’s record proves his high level of competence.

I very gladly travel from Jacksonville and St. Augustine to see Dr. Xuguang Yang for help.

Ps. These resources are not needed when receiving Dr. Xuguang Yang’s help, but for more information about treating menstrual problems with Chinese Medicine the following literature is recommended: books by Bob Flaws, especially Treating Endometriosis in Chinese Medicine or Fire in the Valley and books by Giovanni Maciocia, especially Obstetrics and Gynecology in Chinese Medicine.*

Dr. Yang,

This is to say thank you for helping me. When I started taking acupuncture with you last October I was having many health problems. I am very hypothyroid, which has caused many other problems for me. Some of the thyroid medicine made me sick. The Synthroid helps some, but does not get my level to where it needs to be. After taking your acupuncture and herbs, I had my thyroid level tested again three months later, and it had improved by four points! I always felt calmer and more relaxed after the treatments, and I also slept better. My anxiety level is also lower now. I feel that I am making good progress, thanks to your treatment.

Thank you again,*

Subject: Testimonial

In 1990, I noticed a particular discoloration on my throat. It was a small area of black and blue, I went to see a physician and after blood work and routine check up it was diagnosed as unknown etiology and I was told to keep an eye on this condition until it improved, developed, or worsened.

As time went by I noticed that the area diminished and also at times it got longer and it became more discolored, I experienced episodes in which I had mood changes; these were wanting to sleep for days at a time or unable to sleep for days at the time as well, emotional or angry episodes. My hands shook and my eye sight declined. There were days that I drove with double vision and the cars in from of me looked like they were one on top of the other.

This condition got worse as the years went by, and the discoloration started to look like a butterfly on my throat on or about 1996 to 2003 I was going to the Veteran administration clinic were they could not find an explanation for this discoloration but they addressed the symptoms, and blood results … High blood pressure, High lipids, possible mega thyroid goiter and diabetes type 2, liver and kidney disorders due to medications allergic reaction. For the emotional distress I was schedule a mental health consult to further evaluation and treatment.

To my dismay in 2004 the western doctor diagnosed me with bi polar manic disorder. This only made me feel worse and now I had a label that could effect my career. Now, was taken medication for this conditions, and without hope to ever get off them.

In the middle of 2005, I went to see may primary care physician and we talked for about half hour in which he agreed to do nuclear test and send me to a endocrinologist to further evaluation and treatment.

On September 2005, I was for the first time in 15 year told that my thyroid was causing my short comings. I had nodules but they were irregular in shape and sizes, the endocrinologist asked me to wait for a year and do a retest and see if there were any changes.

In 2006 the nuclear test intake was negative for cancer but ultra-sound showed more nodules and the irregular shapes were now more cylindrical. No medication was given at this time, just to wait and see at least six more months for any more changes. At about this time this my wife was a student at the Florida College of Integrated Medicine and stated that maybe Oriental medicine will help me. I gave it some thought and I went for sleep disorders. An inter under the supervision of Dr. Yang with in a couple of weeks treatment and herbs they resolve my problem and I withdraw from Xanax and zolof.

In 2007, I recheck with my endocrinologist at Tampa VA hospital and the ultra-sound again showed a cylindrical shaping of the nodules with size increase. Another nuclear test was done with changes and possibility of surgical intervention. But again a waiting time of another six months was advice by both Doctors. In the beginning of summer of the same year, I began treatment with Dr. Yang although my belief in acupuncture was already established I was hesitant to believe he would be able to do anything for me. I did a four weeks of out of a six month course and went back to my Doctors and they conquered that the nodules had stop growing at this time measured about 1 mm.

There were no butterfly or discoloration, no difficulty swallowing I thought I am well, so I stop the treatments.

Then, It was summer 2008 that the discoloration reappear and the butterfly in my throat started taking shape. Nodule that had formed in the thyroid brought me back to Dr. Yang because now they had increase to 3.5 mm and were scheduled to be removed post the finding of a needle biopsy. Two weeks prior the biopsy I went to Dr. Yang and he got me in a daily acupuncture treatment with herbs and the day of the biopsy the Radiologist requested a second ultrasound and stated that the nodules had got smaller than in the previous ultrasound. He did the biopsy and the results were normal. I had continued with the couple months treatment and the nodules are gone and I had no more discoloration or difficulty swallowing.

This is my testimonial and I am fortunate that God has used Dr Yang knowledge and dedication to medicine to restored my health.

I will always have Dr. Yang in a highly admiration …

Dealing with the aftermath of my mother’s death and my own illness (IC bladder pain), I was stressed out in 2005. I went from doctor to doctor to try to reduce the pain mentally and physically. It got worse with different type of medications I took. I began to lose weight and was not able to sleep thru the night. The sleeping pills had a very negative effect on me and I became very anxious and nervous. I have also lost a lot of weight. I had received acupuncture and herb treatment without much result. I was in desperate need of finding the right treatment. In April of 2005, a good friend took me to Dr. Yang in Orlando. Dr. Yang gave me acupuncture treatment for the duration about 45 minutes and Chinese herb to take home for each session. In the beginning, I went for three times a week for treatment for about two weeks and then two times a week for another two months. I was able to calm down and sleep during the acupuncture session and went home with much better sleep quality at night. It improved to the point that I only went every other week to once a month impending the end of 2005. I took a break before the end of the year and intended to continue the therapy after the new years. But I was gradually feeling much better and able to go on without the treatment. It was a turning point for me to find Dr. Yang for my personal ordeal. Dr. Yang taught me how to breath and calm down through out Taichi practice. His therapy always started with a detailed interview about all aspects of my health. He was genuinely interested in my daily live and health habit. I felt Dr. Yang was willing to spent time on his patient and his acupuncture skill was superb. Most of the acupuncture needles went in to my head and neck .He was always willing to adjust the acupuncture needles and made sure that I was comfortable during the session. I had lots of tense muscles. Dr.Yang usually gave a second acupuncture treatment plus message for the muscle in my back. I gradually build a lot of confidence in his treatment and was able to follow whatever instructions he gave me.

2006 has gone fast. I have not gone back for more treatment for about a year. I have gained all the weight back and able to sleep peacefully at night. I still practice Taichi, which I learned from Dr. Yang and remembered all his advises.

I’ll never forget his kindness toward my husband and me during the treatment. I was very lucky to find Dr. Yang. *

I’m very happy to report the great results I received from Dr Yang’s treatments and the herbal formulas for my menopause. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to Dr. Yang for helping me with my health issues.

Since about 3 years ago, when menopause was coming, I have had hot flashes, poor sleep, night sweats, feeling of stress and mood swings. I knew what was happening to me, it was “supposed to happen” but not to me.

I tried to help myself, but it is working very slowly. I have studied acupuncture and Chinese medicine since the summer of 2007 and I’m always asking myself the same question. Can acupuncture and Chinese medicine help me? I should have tried some Chinese herbs before trying to help other people who have the same problems. I visited Dr. Yang because I heard from my friends that he is very knowledgeable and is full of experience with Chinese medicine.

After Dr. Yang listened to my complaints, he checked my tongue and pulse. He further explained to me about my problems. He decided to make an herbal formula for me. I followed the procedure of taking it 3 times a day for two weeks. After one week, I had seen some changes in myself. It improved my hot flashes, poor sleep, night sweats and my emotions became calmer. After taking more of the herbal formula, all the symptoms of my menopause improved.

I must say that I’m very surprised. I remember asking Dr. Yang, “Does your herbal formula treat my all problems?” Now that I have stopped taking Chinese herbs for about a half year, I’m still in a very good condition. My condition is fully stabilized.

Thank you, Dr Yang

I initially saw Dr. Yang for a chronic inflamed sciatic nerve condition. Within minutes the pain was totally gone. Twelve years ago I had a total hysterectomy and have suffered continually with unbearable hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, mood swings etc. I was allergic to any and all Hormone Replacement Therapy that was prescribed my many physicians. I again sought Dr. Yang’s help with my hormone imbalance. Within 2 months time I was totally healed from the symptoms of Hormone Imbalance. I am in total disbelief that such a treatment helped me so much without any western medicines at all. I shall seek HIS assistance whenever I become ill first. What an amazing discovery. Thank you so much Dr. Yang. I sing your praises to whomever will listen.

Migraine and Headache

In honor and appreciation of the many attributes to Traditional Chinese Medicine, Art of Acupuncture and the outstanding ability and knowledge of Dr. Yang.

When I was 8 years old, I ran in front of an oncoming automobile traveling 35-40 mph. I was struck and thrown several 100 feet. This resulted in a head concussion, multiple bone fractures and coma. In my late teens, I started experiencing petit mal seizures and daily cluster migraines. These headaches consumed most of the facets of my daily existence for 30 years.

The result of extensive facial fractures led to enlarged sinuses that were prone to obstruction and chronic sinus infection; along with asthma.

I was treated by a plethora of Western physicians and chiropractic manipulation including several hospitalizations over the years addressing headaches, trigeminal neuralgia, TMJ and depression. The diagnosis stemmed back to the car accident. Their treatment plans always amounted to a sundry of medications that changed with the attending physician. This resulted into further addiction to a variety of pharmaceuticals; without long term headache relief.

When western medicine had run out of answers, I was then introduced to western/medical acupuncture. This physician was able to reduce the frequency and duration of the migraines but never totally take them away.

In October 2005, I was accepted to FCIM as a student, still plagued with daily headaches and multiple migraines. It was very concerning to me; in light of the fact that I needed to have a high level of concentration for studying, that the headaches were still interfering in my daily activities.

As a student; I decided to start regular treatments at the clinic prior to enrollment. It was divine intervention that Dr. Yang was able to oversee the initial treatment plans. Dr. Yang prescribed his acclaimed Shen treatment for anxiety and pain disorders. Within 20 minutes of e-stim application to his well-chosen point protocol; the headache had diminished to a tolerable level of pain and discomfort.

He said to return by the end of the week for a follow up session to continue addressing the lung, sinus and headache condition, and he would help me conquer the problem.

I still remember the day as if it were yesterday, I was experiencing an incapacitating headache that had returned in less than a day following. Once again the prescription was to repeat the Shen protocol for a longer time. It was as if a miracle had taken place; the migraine evaporated forever. The Shen Protocol is a gift beyond words. One and a half years later, and I am still headache and medication free.

I am truly indebted to having met Dr. Yang and have the good fortune of his healing expertise! *

Post Concussion Syndrome

Dear Dr. Yang:

Just a note to tell you how pleased I have been with the acupuncture treatments you gave me.

After a head injury many years ago, I was unhappily left with dizziness that was seemingly “incurable.”

I have been too many specialists throughout the U.S., and had some relief, but in recent months, the situation had worsened again, and no one could help. Since I am very sensitive to prescription medications, I decided to try acupuncture, and was delighted to find you and have results after only the second treatment.

My situation continued to improve as time went on, and in a few months I was able to drive my car again, and to resume teaching, gradually working up to my former schedule. My neck pain was also treated by your acupuncture treatment, and it also was eliminated.

I want you to know I tell everyone who is suffering any pain or discomfort to go to see you. I know I was very happy to meet a physician who is competent, caring, and capable.

Thank you again.

Acupuncturist Commented on Shen Treatment Protocol

I’ve been experimenting with and using your Shen treatment protocol with excellent success on a large number of patients. I’m curious if you have any other electro-acupuncture stimulation protocols that you have personally found successful as I am very interested in increasing my clinical efficacy. I would greatly appreciate it if you could provide any information regarding them.

Skin Conditions

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.
