Cancer, Hind End Weakness, Incontinence, Arthritis

Treatment: Routine Acupuncture, Several Herbal Formulations, Diet Therapy

Outcome:  Gus was my very first acupuncture patient and has had an unbelievable response to treatment.  I started treating him in the Fall of 2012 for his arthritis and weakness.  This past February I found a large lung mass that we presume to be cancer.  Due to it's location, we did not biopsy it.  I immediately started treating him for cancer and so far he has never acted sick from the mass.  As he ages we find new ailments, such as incontinence, that get added to his treatment plan.  Our goal is to keep him happy with a good quality of life.  So far our goals are being met without the use of routine prescription medication.  Not bad for an old boxer!
