My problem with my health started in December 2002.  I was first told that it was a food allergy (fish or pork).  I went for blood tests and it was all clear.....

On referral to a well know Durban Dermatologist it was found that I suffer from Hives or Urticaria.  Further expensive tests were done all to prove clear.

 I was treated with anti-histamines and had to do a proper check on what I eat.  At a cost I went for a second opinion to another Dermatologist' same answers.  Just different and more expensive tablets.  No improvement in my condition.

 This was really difficult as the rash which comes out burns and stings whether I was cutting down on certain foods or not.

 However the treatment started to include cortisone creams and tablets as well as a monthly cortisone injection.  By this time my medical bills were just rising and the total amount of tablets per day were 12 plus cortisone twice a week plus a monthly injection.  R1200 per month for tablets was just beyond my monthly budget.  Apart from the financial side I also started to put on weight, the red lumps burning and itching all the time were not getting better and I did not seem to get anywhere,  this has been six months of hell.  My face and body use to swell up so badly as well that I could not even see out of my eyes from being swollen.

 On coming to work on day looking like I have been beaten up again,  a good friend suggested that I go see Dr Lin.  I thought this is it someone out there should be able to help me.

 I started treatment on 7 July an after the third treatment I already felt so much better,  the problem actually being a liver not detoxing correctly!!!!

 After Dr Lin's treatment and friendly advise on what to do I am already a different person feeling so much better, and enjoying my life without a skin that is red lumpy and burning.  I look forward to every appointment with Dr Lin as she is kind warm and caring and has made a difference in my life.

 I am sure she will make a difference in yours. And I will recommend her treatment to anyone out there.
