NUMBNESS OF THE LEGS | I HAVE STEADILY REGAINED FEELING | NEUROPATHY, MOBILITY AND INJURY

My name is J.L., and I’m 72 years old. In recent years, I had experienced (and mentioned to my doctor) frequent and gradually increasing numbness in my legs and feet. Thankfully, no pain. Then in 2013 I experienced 3 accidental falls over the course of one year. Although I addressed these injuries and resolved them through acupuncture and physical therapy, the resultant lack of confidence/fear of falling began to significantly impact my mobility and willingness to venture out.

Meanwhile, the neuropathy progressed. I am not diabetic, and an ultrasound ruled out arterial narrowing, but nonetheless my legs were often numb and felt very unstable. By now I was relying on a cane, and then a walker, even to move a short distance in my home. I decided to try acupuncture to regain the feeling in my legs. In November of 2017, I met with Dr Huang and he expressed his firm belief that he could help me. I began treatment 3 times a week (acupuncture supplemented by his recommended herbal medicine) and I have steadily regained feeling – and some strength – in my legs, which has enabled me to start physical therapy to be able to eventually walk without assistance or fear. 

In the meantime, my primary care doctor referred me for the first time to a neurologist for evaluation. On May 3 the clinical evaluation of Dr. at Health Care Partners was that my neuropathy is very mild. I am sure that reflects the improvement for which I credit Dr. Huang. When I first came to Agape Natural Health in November, I would have never felt ready or able to start physical therapy. In addition to clinical excellence, I am so grateful to Dr. Huang and his entire staff for their kindness, spiritual support and continual encouragement. In the near future, I plan to have one weekly session of acupuncture, plus the herbs.  I will continue the physical therapy visits and faithfully do my home exercises to be able to once again walk more normally. I hope to write again in the near future to report that I -- at long last -– have my ‘land legs’ back. Thank you!  J.L., Garden Grove, CA, May 18, 2018
