I started treatment with Dr. Mancini in September of 2004. At that time, I was also experiencing extreme arterial fibrillation. This causes your heart to race and it is very hard to breathe and you are unable to function in daily activities. I had been going through this for over a year. I had this continually all day long, everyday. I had gone to a cardiologist and he started me on medication. He finally put me on the strongest medication and still did not stop it completely. This medication also had side effects; it could damage my liver and lungs. I still was experiencing fibrillation everyday. When I started treatment with Dr. Mancini, he started me on supplements, acupuncture and taught me breathing techniques. My fibrillation started getting better and came less frequent. A month later I found out that I had a tumor on my kidney and would have to have it removed. Dr. Mancini encouraged me and made sure my body was prepared for surgery. After my surgery, I made a quick recovery. I believe it was the supplements and acupuncture that helped me to heal so quickly.
I can now say that I have not had any fibrillation in six weeks, something I have not experienced for over two years. I have regained my strength and endurance. I have cut my medication to a quarter of what I was taking before. I have a goal to completely go off all my medications in the next couple of months. I went back to my urologist this week and he gave me a good report and said that my one kidney is functioning and taken over for the lost kidney. We are leaving for a vacation in Hawaii and I feel I can really enjoy myself and be able to do what I want to do. I want to thank you, Dr. Mancini and staff, for your encouragement and love that you have showed.
