A letter from Rebecca
In January of 2004, my seven year old son, saw Dr. Guo for three
reasons: acute anxiety, allergies, and asthma. He had been treated with a SSRI
drug called Celexa since he was five, and diagnosed with a severe anxiety
disorder at that time. Further, he acquired asthma and many allergies since
the age of three. As a mother, I was extremely concerned about the amount and
kind of drugs he was put on, but the doctors told me I had no choice, and I
didn't know any better, thought my gut told me to continue my search for
alternative methods of treatment. In January of this past year, a neighbor
introduced me to Dr. Guo, and since that January appointment, our son and the
rest of our family, are finely at ease with the treatment he is taking. Our
son's anxieties are far more controlled with herbal treatments than they were
on the SSRI drug, Celexa. So, we thought he was getting the best results
possible from Celexa, when in fact, we saw a dramtic difference in behaviors!
between those when he was on Celexa and now the herbal treatments. It is
now May, and he is probably at 85-90% of where we'd like him to be at age seven.
With those positive results, I decided to take my three & 1/2 year
old daughter in to see Dr. Guo. She was diagnosed with eczema since she was an infant. In the
past months, the itchy patches on her back started to bleed from the scratching. In just ten days on herbal treatments, her hives were reduced by 90%. I may see one small hive every few days now, whereas before, I was seeing many
all over her body daily. She will continue her treatment for a few more weeks, and then she should be complete.
I decided in April, that it was time to take care of my eczema, a condition I
have had for seventeen years. After ten days, I watched my eczema disappear
before my eyes. This, to me, is miraculous, since Western medicine will only
prescribe "band-aid" style ointments, that typically last only 24 hrs. For the
first time in seventeen years, my eczema is GONE - six weeks into treatment.
Further, I was carrying a lot of stress in my upper back - muscles there and in
my neck were beginning to cause me problems. Dr. Guo prescribed herbs for that
problem, too, and I no longer have any tightness in my back or neck.
I couldn't be more happy for my children, who don't have to suffer all their
lives with conditions that would otherwise be treated in a "band-aid" style
approach. And, I cannot thank Dr. Guo enough for his genius -- we are three,
healthier people, because of him.
