People Say

I’ve suffered from multiple digestive problems since childhood, on top of multiple allergies as well - food sensitivities, diarrhea, gastritis. I went to Nei Jing as a last resort, because nothing else had really worked, and it was the best decision that I made, where my health is concerned. My treatment focused mostly on herbs, diet and reflexology, and over time I could really see the result. I have a much more diversified diet now, without fearing adverse reactions, and haven’t had an episode of gastritis in a long, long while.

People Say

I was a patient at Nei Jing for about a year and a half, until my gastrointestinal issues were completely resolved. Many different types of medications had been prescribed to me over the years, but nothing really got rid of the problem completely. I witnessed such changes with Chinese medicine that I finally became able to travel without carrying my personal pharmacy and food supplies. It’s amazing to not have my life dictated by digestive issues anymore.
