Interesting Cases

Elevated Liver enzymes cause cancer.

A female patient with chronic elevated enzymes due to hepatitis was receiving acupuncture and herbal formulas.  In just a few months she responded quite well, her liver enzymes were under control, and emotionally she felt good.  One of her liver specialist told her that she could continue receiving acupuncture but that she could no longer take the prescribed herbal tea.  So, she stopped receiving treatments.  I spoke to her on the phone and told her that she really should continue with her treatment course because she was seeing a great improvement, however, she failed to take my advice.  I also told her that if she stopped receiving treatments that she would be at great risk for developing liver cancer.  Three years later, she was diagnosed with liver cancer and died while waiting for a liver transplant.
