Here I post a doctor’s suggestion to his patient. I feel he is correct.
“I was just thinking why you may not have
taken advantage of your consultation.

You’re probably like many others who
suffer from back pain, headache, neck pain,
soreness, or any type of physical ache or pain…
the pain comes and goes and now you’re feeling
pretty good…am I right?

Sometimes even our patients often feel
better after the first few treatments,
and although this may seem good, the opposite
can sometimes be true as well.

Patients often mistake this feeling for a total
cure of their condition. They simply do not
realize that a relief of the symptoms DOES
NOT indicate a correction of the condition.

The smart patients never discontinue treatment
before their actual complaint has been corrected,
and if they do so, further complications are
bound to develop.

Even if you feel better, get checked out.

Prevent future problems.

We’ll extend our offer for a consultation,
but you have to call our office .
We’re standing by to hear from you and hopefully
help you prevent future problems.”

Recently a patient visited our acupuncture and Chinese medicine center in Vienna, Virginia for her partial facial palsy post Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS). Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine helped her very much, now her face looks normal after two months of treatments.

She had Guillain Barre Syndrome in late of January this year (2010), at that time she had both side facial palsy and fingers and toes numbness, lost of walking balance, short of breath, etc., hospitalized for one week, using IVIG, etc. to treat. After extensive neurological treatment, in late of March, she started to see Dr. Fan for help with her facial palsy’s recovery. At initial time, her left eye could not close tightly, and eye lid movement was poor; right face muscle and right side of upper mouth lip movement was very poor, and she could not whistle.

Now everything is about “99%” improved and looks normal.
