Testimonials from Dr.Jin's Patients
DIABETES

April 21, 2003
I first came to see Dr. Jin for pain in my back and leg. I had back surgery for a ruptured disk in 1980's, since that time have been subject to frequent spasms and cramps. The treatment was successful, and during this period, I learned that high blood pressure and diabetes could be treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine. I have been taking Atenenol for high blood pressure and Glyburide for diabetes. Dr. Jin began treatments for my high blood pressure with both acupuncture and herbal medicine. During the period of treatment, I cut my daily dose of Atenenol in half and monitored my blood pressure on a regular basis. I found that I was averaging 125/70, which I was very pleased with considering the reduction in the daily dosage. When we began treating for diabetes, I was still exhibiting symptoms of the disease, including cold feet at night time, and getting up once or twice during the night to go to the bathroom. My ankles had a slight purplish color and were puffy on occasion.  The first night I drank Dr. Jin's herbal tea, I slept through the night without getting up once. Subsequently, I noticed that my feet were seldom cold at night, and if they were, they warmed up quickly. My ankles have regained a healthier color and I haven't noticed any perceptible swelling since. ~ R. T.
