(Heart Disease)

It happened about a year ago…when I got diagnosed by my doctor that I might need to get heart surgery.  I felt hopeless.  I don’t remember when it began, but I started experiencing heart discomfort, and when it became difficult for me to breathe, I often clenched my heart.  This occurred more and more, so I got an EKG, blood test, and x-ray done.  I was in my early 60s…trying best to live my life, but I realized that I did not focus on my health…

One day, my son brought his friend (OP) to our house. He wanted me to try out a treatment called moxibustion.  I had heard that people got better through eastern medicine treatments, but I did not believe in it.  Still, I decided to give it a try since my son recommended it.  I got moxibustion and acupuncture treatments every evening for 7 days.  Two days after starting the treatment, my heart discomfort and the need to clench my heart disappeared.  On the day of my doctor’s visit, my doctor told me that I didn’t need heart surgery after all and that we should continue to monitor my heart condition.  Everyone was surprised about my sudden health improvement, but they kept asking me about the scar near my heart.  They asked if my husband did something to cause the scar.  They said it’s ok to be honest.  At first, I did not understand what they were talking about, but when someone translated for me, I realized they didn’t know about my treatment.  I clarified that I received eastern medicine treatment.  The doctor said that he had heard of it.  I visited 2 other doctors from different hospital and got a full examination.  Anyways, they told me that they don’t think I need to get heart surgery for now, so I felt relieved.  I have had a wonderful experience with moxibustion and acupuncture treatments, so I highly recommend eastern medicine to everyone I know.  Our country’s eastern medicine treatment is great. Thank you!
