The extraordinary Chinese medicine doctor, Dr. Au Sik Kee, specializes in treating diseases Western medicine fails to treat, results striking
Today we publish the first of a series of weekly case studies by a prominent, Hong Kong based, Chinese medicine doctor, Dr. Au Sik Kee, so as to benefit our readers in the United States. Our first case is a case of an Alzheimer’s disease patient who was cured in only one and a half months.
This was a case in 2016, the patient was a female, 67 years old. She suffered from memory loss and slow thinking. After one and a half months of treatment, her memory was fully recovered.
On July 13, 2016, the patient came to my clinic to seek medical treatment. When she came, she was walking with the support of a crutch. She had unsteady gait and looked gray and dull. A year and a half before, she described, she had an accident and fell off the stairs. Her head hit the ground first and a big bump was formed at the back of her head. After that incident, she fell again two times, both times there was bleeding. I believed that her unsteady gait was a result of these falls and the impact on her head. Her hands have also been shaking for a period of time, recalled her husband, while holding the phone. Her husband also said that she would forget things she was told completely almost right away.
Through my observation, the patient’s grey and dull complexion was due to insufficient blood going to the brain, which could be an indication of a weak heart. Another symptom of blood deficiency in the brain is depression. When I asked if she suffered from depression, she said yes, which confirmed my prognosis. Another possible cause for her grey and dull complexion was liver problem. However, that was yet to be confirmed by the urine color. Her left and right finger joints suffered from rheumatoid arthritis, which was the result of blood clots in the brain, once the clots were removed, inflammation would be reduced. Whereas, if she continued with the steroid medication and painkillers such western medicine, her kidney would be damaged, she would have night time frequent urination and weak flow of urine.
Since the treatment started, the patient called me daily to report her condition. After the first medication, she sweated a lot in the evening, but was able to sleep well. Her right index finger and ring finger joints were still painful. I asked her to do a walk and make a sharp turn. She had no problem with that exercise and said that her feet felt light, not heavy like before. She also said that things around her appeared brighter than before. These changes occured because more blood was going to the brain. I expected her overall condition to gradually improve.
Discharge of odorous sweats, improvement of long-term and short-term memory
Before the treatment, patient’s urine color was orange. The coloration indicated discharge of blood clots from the heart. At the bottom of the urine sample there was sediment, which was cholesterol. After treatment, the first bottle of urine sample was yellowish, the second bottle was yellowish brown and the third bottle was light yellowish. On July 19, patient came in for a second visit. Her urine sample was light orange in color. Her complexion appeared brighter than before, it was especially obvious at the forehead and her husband agreed. When she called me the day before, she was able to recall that she was sweating a lot on the head and shoulder with bad smell. Odorous sweat indicated toxins being discharged. Also, the fact that she could recall earlier memories showed that her short-term memory has improved.
After one week, the patient was also able to remember my name and the name of the person who referred her to me, something she had difficulty with before. In addition, she liked reading Buddhist bible every day, however, if disturbed, she said she would have difficulty remembering the place in the bible where she left off and would feel very frustrated each time. After only a week of treatment, she could remember where she left off in the bible and continue to read. All these proved that her memory has greatly improved in just one week. When she stretched out her hands, they did not tremble like they did during her first visit.
July 23 was patient’s third visit to the clinic. The previous two days of urine sample was yellowish brown, indicating there was toxins deposited in the liver. The other four bottles of urine sample were light yellowish brown and clear. On that day, the first urination was orange-brown, representing blood clots being discharged from the brain and the heart. The other urine samples were light yellow. She said that the past few days she has been sweating during her sleep and would wipe it with a towel. She realized that the towel stink after it dried, a smell that she didn’t notice before. This showed that her sense of smell has improved. In general, sense of smell is weak for people with dementia.
Recently, she often awoke at 3 am, but she would still feel wide awake during the day. Her bible reading time and habit was normal and smooth, and she could still remember where she left off after being disturbed. Her mouth did not feel dry anymore and she spoke faster. Her right index finger and pinky joints still felt pain. Her left index finger also felt pain at the joints. Before, her toes often felt numb at the tip, but there was improvement recently. Numbness of the fingers and toes is a phenomenon of cerebral ischemia and weak heart.
Hand tremor reduced, balance restored and crutches unnecessary
After treatment, patient’s bowel movement became normal and hand tremor has reduced. She could walk without crutches and also make sharp turns without any trouble nor loosing balance. Before, she was afraid to turn around to see things because she would feel a falling sensation. After the treatment, she could turn her head or body without any problem. She felt like a different person.
Over the treatment period, patient has sent four bottles of urine sample. One bottle turned from purple to black, indicated toxins and blood clots discharged from the liver. One bottle was deep orange brownish red, indicated blood clots discharged from the heart and the head. The other two bottles were brown, with crystal-like sediment, which was tartaric acid and uric acid. From her urine sample, we could see that the brain had a lot of clots and toxins, damaging the brain’s nervous system. She also experienced pain in the right femur, which she didn’t have before the treatment, and could hardly walk. I explained that the phenomenon is normal because as the clots and toxins are being discharged, they flow through the large splenic nerves in the brain, causing a lot of pressure thus pain. The pain would go away in two days. It was crucial that she continued with the medication in order to get rid of all clots and toxins.
Furthermore, her index fingers and pinky were still swollen with pain, the severity was irregular with the right index finger being more painful. Numbness on the toes was gradually improving, indicating the brain cells were getting sufficient blood supply. Also, since she began feeling pain on her right femur, her stools became watery, the first time after her treatment, also indicating toxins was being discharged from the liver. Her femur pain would eventually go away as clots and toxins in the brain reduced.
During the patient’s fourth visit, her condition has shown great progress. She could walk smoothly and her femur pain has gone, except for only a slight pressure sensation which was only a little discomforting. Her grey and dull complexion has gradually disappeared, even her friends at her Tai Chi class noticed her brighter complexion and higher spirit. Her memory has improved significantly. She could recall contents of the phone conversation with her grandchildren. She could carry out her bible reading smoothly, speak faster, respond more quickly, and walk faster. She could even memorize her Tai Chi Qigong moves. Her friends praised her for making great progress in her Tai Chi class. Her husband said that she has become more cheerful and her temperament was more peaceful. This was all because the liver has been cleared of clots and toxins, it was restored to a healthy state and supply of blood to the brain has increased.
August 4, during patient’s fifth visit, patient felt pain in the shoulders and fingers. She was not able to raise her hands up high, her right foot suffered from edema. There was no depression when the foot was pressed. I believed that her blood clots in the brain was not completely removed and she needed to continue with medication. She felt like the pain was spreading because when toxins in the liver and dead liver cells was being discharged, it oppressed different parts of the nerves. As soon as the tartaric acid crystals in the body has completely drained away, the pain would eventually go away. During her last visit, patient was able to raise her hands above the head.
Despite taking traditional Chinese medicine and my advice against, patient started taking western pain medication. This would reduce the heartbeat, numb the brain nerves, and toxins would be discharged more slowly, which would slow down recovery.
Dementia fully recovered
After taking my Chinese medicine, patient’s condition has greatly improved. Both swelling and pain in her index fingers have gone. There was only a little pain in the pinky, which was almost insignificant. As for her complaint of shoulder pain, since she was able to raise her hands up high and straight, the pain was not serious and I suspected it could simply be psychological.
On August 13, patient came for her sixth visit. Although she complained about feeling pain all over the body, not being able to sleep well and her spirit feeling low, her complexion was rosy and her face smiley. She had no trouble walking and making a sharp turn, she had good balance and no more hand tremor. In addition, her hands and feet were warm, indicating good blood circulation. Her bowel movement and stool were normal. She seemed like a whole different person compared with the first time she came. For her rheumatoid arthritis problem, it would need another month or two of treatment to completely drain away the toxins that caused the problem. Unfortunately, she continued to take western pain medicine for her rheumatoid arthritis. The western medicine has diminished the effect of the traditional Chinese medicine.
Basically, the patient’s symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease has been eliminated, although the right foot swelling remained the same. I believed it was not a case of edema but subcutaneous fat. During the last several follow-up visits, she has not followed my advice but continued to take western pain medicine. Her memory suddenly declined. I explained that western medicine only suppresses the symptoms, it is not a permanent cure. The drug only anaesthetizes the nerves so that signal transmission is hampered, temporarily suppresses the pain, at the same time, it weakens the entire nervous system and greatly reduces the memory power. After a while the symptoms will relapse. After a few days, after the efficacy of painkillers has tapered off, memory power might be recovered but the damage is done already.
In the past six weeks of treatment, the patient’s main purpose of seeking treatment, dementia, has been addressed and cured, in addition to recovering to her original state and character. My responsibility has been completed. However, rheumatoid arthritis treatment will still require a period of time. Of course I hope that patients can recover as soon as possible, but if a patient chooses to mix Chinese and western medicine, thinking it will accelerate the treatment, he or she is mistaken. It is, on the contrary, counterproductive. It will only make the memory power decline further. In this case, there is really nothing I can do.
