Case study

At Almond Wellness Centre Dr. Richard Zeng has helped a great number of patients who had suffered from cancer regain their health and energy. Here is just a couple of cases who had treatment at our clinics:

Case 1 – life quality

42 year old female, was diagnosed breast cancer 3 years ago. She had mastectomy, chemo and radio therapy and was on medication for cancer. She had hot flashes every 45 minutes to one hour. Her energy was low due to poor sleep and chemo therapy. She also feel depressed and anxious.

After a few sessions of acupuncture and daily intakes of Chinese herbal medicine, her hot flash has come down to only a couple of times per night.  The intensity of hot flashes has greatly reduced as well. Her sleep and emotion improved. She felt much better in energy and could do most of things that she couldn’t do after chemo therapy.

Case 2 – cancer related fatigue

65 year old female was diagnosed with ovarian cancer one and half years ago. She had radical hysterectomy followed with chemotherapy. She felt extremely sick and tight during and after chemotherapy. She rated her energy 1~2 out of 10.

When she visited us at Almond Wellness Centre, she was in an extremely weak condition. She was diagnosed as Qi and Blood deficiency in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture and herbal medicine were given weekly. After 4 weeks treatment her energy has greatly improved and she rated her energy 8 out of 10.
