SC (H222) was 68 years old when she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She underwent an open-and-close surgery. The cancer had spread to the back of the chest wall and was considered a Stage 4 lung cancer.
She was asked to undergo chemotherapy but refused. She was told that she had six months to live. SC took our herbs and she is still doing alright up to this day – after three and a half years. Unfortunately, she suffered pains. The following are our e-mail exchanges with her daughter.

Hi Im, Prof Chris,
I am at my wits end trying to see how else to ease Mom’s pain. We are trying acupuncture currently, three sessions so far but she said the pain is still as bad. Last week she had a very bad palpitation which lasted for almost 7 hours. And it happened again today though not as long as the previous time. The pain must have been really bad as she is talking about dying.

Apart from the pain and lack of strength, Mum looks okay and can eat moderately. Should I bring Mum up to see you again?
Reply: Do you think you can persuade mom to try the machine again. If you can come and stay for a few days we can use the machine for pain. See this website www.PainAndWellness.org . This website concentrates on pain cases. We seem to be having good results but I don’t know why mom is reluctant to use it. There must be a reason for this fear? I really don’t have any other way to help with her pain besides the Pain Tea. If she agrees, why not give a try again. But it all depends if she agrees to use it or not.
Thanks Prof Chris,
I talked to Mom again about coming up to Penang to do the e-therapy again. She did not resist the idea. When would it be convenient to you for us to come up to see you?
SC came to Penang to receive six days of e-therapy (from 13 to 18 February 2012). She benefited from the treatment! Her improvements could be seen in her face! We are glad that she took the challenge to come to Penang and try the e-Therapy.

- The middle finger of her right hand had difficulty “straightening up.” She had to push up this finger which “locks” on bending. Such problem is referred to as “trigger finger.” The fingers of her left hand were rather “tight” and not comfortable.
- The fingers of her left hand lacked strength although they are not trigger fingers.
- She received her first session of e-Therapy.
14 December 2011
- She slept well after the e-Therapy. Before the e-Therapy her sleep was not good – probably due to stress and too much thinking.
- She did not suffer any side effects after the e-Therapy.
- Fingers on her left hand felt better. Previously she had difficulty picking up a pillow with her left hand. After the first session of the e-Therapy she was able to pick up things with her left hand – now her fingers had more strength.
- Fingers of her right hand remained the same – the middle finger remained “locked” when bent.
15 December 2011
- Fingers of her left hand felt better – even more strength than before.
- Fingers of her right hand were better. The middle finger remained a problem but she was able to “open” it with much less effort.
18 December 2011
- Fingers of her left hand were good.
- Fingers of her right hand were better. Once a while the middle finger still gave problem but she could “trigger” open it and it was not “stuck” any more. According to her, the problem had resolved by about 70 percent.
- She had undergone four sessions of the e-Therapy and felt much better.
After five sessions of the e-Therapy, Wita returned to Medan. She returned to CA Care after about three weeks for more of the therapy. The questions we ask:
- Did her problems recur after the initial treatment three weeks ago?
- Could the benefits of the e-Therapy be just a placebo effect?

- The healing of her trigger finger and loosening of fingers in both hands remained and they remained good until the end of the year. However from the beginning of 2012 – she did not have a helper at home. So Wita had to do all the house chores of washing using her bare hands. The fingers of her right hand felt “cold” and a bit tight. But the middle finger was still able to “straighten out” and not stuck like before.
- The fingers of her left hand remained good.
- Before receiving the e-Therapy, she felt “uncomfortable” in her backbone. When she stood up after sitting down for a long time, she would feel “tight” and felt like “ant-bite”. After standing up, she had to move slowly at first before she could walk normally. She felt “something” in her backbone. After the e-Therapy she felt good. She could stand up right away and walk without anymore problem.
- Her sleep was good after the e-Therapy.
11 January 2012
After another session of the e-Therapy the fingers of her right hand felt better than the day before.
