Dr. Rosenfarb Treatment: Week 1 Test Results

Written By: ingridricks - Dec• 06•13

happiness-withinI wish all of you were here to share a bottle of champagne with me, because I’m in serious celebration mode.  After five days of treatment with Dr. Rosenfarb, my first round of test results are in.  And they are AMAZING.

I knew I was in bad shape. But didn’t fully appreciate how bad off I was until I had my “before” and “after” comparisons—especially as it relates to visual acuity.

I’ve undergone extensive acupuncture over the past year with different practitioners but have never had anything close to these results. I feel like I’ve been given back my life. Thank you all for your amazing friendship, support and healing energy. And to all of you struggling with this eye disease—it’s worth contacting Dr. Rosenfarb at Acupuncture Health and at least talking with him about your case.  Every RP patient I’ve encountered this week has experienced a positive result. I wish I had started with him from the beginning.

      Noah – thanks so much for taking the time to write. Your brother ROCKS and so many of us are so grateful to him for his continued efforts to save eyesight, make his treatment protocol accessible everywhere AND undergo the Western clinical trials necessary so one day broad insurance coverage will be available.
