Fibromyalgia - Case Study


Marie is a Long Beach resident who came to the Clinic in May 06. She reported chronic fatigue syndrome, dizziness, ringing in the ears, hormonal imbalance, chronic yeast infection, cyst on right ovary, digestive problems, constipation, and sharp burning rib pains. She felt sick to her stomach and was nauseous.

In addition, she had pain in all joints and, knee aches. She is allergic to as many as thirty different food. She went to many different doctors. One doctor did the blood work to show she has three different kinds of viruses in her body thus diagnosed as Chronic fatigue syndrome and Fibromyalgia. One doctor gave her antiviral medicine that made her sicker!

With her friends’ highly recommendations, she came to the Ping Clinic for help. Dr. Ping put her in the program to boost her immune system, balance her diet with some herbal supplements and acupuncture. All her pain and chest tightness went away within a week! She regained her energy by the third week!

All the negative hormonal related symptoms were gone, too. She is feeling 100% better, with lots of energy and no pain. One year later, she is continuing doing wonderful and none of the symptoms returned. She comes in once in a while for Dr Ping’s ‘magic touch’!
