|"It is great to be able to eat, talk, and smile without having to suffer a sharp pain in the left side of my face."|
I want to express my thanks and gratitude for your kind and effective acupuncture treatments and natural herbal medicines. They have been highly successful in relieving me of the severe pain caused by neuralgia of the fifth cranial nerve, called the trigeminal facial nerve.
I have suffered with this problem for over 8 years. In 1982, a specialist in neuralgia advised me that the only cure for my problem was surgery. He said the pain would get increasing worse and that there was no effective medication. I was informed that there are two kinds of surgery for this problem. The nerve can be severed, which will cause complete numbness of the entire left side of the face and possibly paralysis. Or, drastic brain surgery can be performed in order to remove the nerve from its proximity to the blood vessel.
Since I did not want either of these surgeries, I suffered the pain, which became increasing worse, until I felt I had no choice unless I could get some relief. In July of 1988, I visited another specialist who tried the only two medications used for this problem, I was allergic to both.
I had heard of your success in acupuncture so I decided to try it. I am so glad I did. It is great to be able to eat, talk, and smile without having to suffer a sharp pain in the left side of my face.
I highly recommend your acupuncture treatment for anyone who might have the same problem of the neuralgia of the facial nerve. May God bless you and thanks again for your kind and effective treatments and for saving me from drastic surgery.
