John Bell's Story
NAME: John Bell
AGE: 6 years old
DIAGNOSIS: Nephrotic Syndrome
CONDITION BEFORE TREATMENT
Little John had tonsillitis and began to experience swelling in eyes and legs in 2004. He was tested in local hospital and found his urine protein was 3+. John was diagnosed with Nephrotic Syndrome then. The condition got better after matching treatments were delivered. The hormone drugs were taken just as the doctor told. John’s routine urine tests showed negative in the later discontinuous tests and he cut the drugs off in 2005.
Good times don’t last long. John developed puffiness in his face and limbs in 2007 once again! His urine protein rebounded to 3+. Maria realized her son’s condition would relapse again and again in the coming days, which was the last thing she wanted to see. “I am a Chinese, you know? So I thought maybe western medicines won’t work, but Chinese medicine will do. If I get one chance to fight, I definitely won’t sit by!” Maria answered as I asked her why she came all the way from America to China.
START OF THE TREATMENT: June 29, 2007
TREATMENT FROM Huaxia KIDNEY DISEASE HOSPITAL
Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy specially designed for children, 45 min/time, 1 time per day.
CONDITION AFTER TREATMENT
John experienced oliguria in the beginning. It was mainly caused by hypoproteinemia. To be simple, the oliguria was resulting from a great deal of protein leaking from the urine. The situation was improved after five-day treatment, and John’s urine output reached up to 1650ml per day after one-month treatment.
The swelling or edema relieved shortly after he hospitalized in our hospital. A day later, the puffiness in his face disappeared while the swelling in the legs eased. Due to the greatly improved condition, the level of nursing care reduced from level one to level two. His swelling disappeared completely on July 10, 2007.
Urine protein: 1+, urine output: 1300ml and the occult blood became negative. All those numbers revealed that our therapies were right and effective.
Little John was happier than before. He was so young and had no idea what was happening on him. Shaking off all the annoying symptoms, he was able to sleep well, eat more and play with other kids all day long.
“I made a right decision. If you have no other choice, always remember try Chinese medicine. It is and always will be the right choice, because it is a gift from God!”
