How I became a chiropractor…
By Dr. Wong
Thirty-two years ago my wife, Safari, woke up complaining of pain in her fingers. At first we hoped the pain would just go away. Over the next two years Safari's pain got worse. It was like an intense headache or toothache. All ten fingers were looking horrible. They hurt so much she could not sleep, work or even eat. As a husband, I felt helpless. I would have done ANYTHING to relieve her suffering.
Over the next two years we went to eight of the best medical specialists that money could buy. Each specialist gave us a different diagnosis and a different drug. The medical bills were piling up. Nothing was working--and Safari was getting worse.
Her fingers had turned grey and purple. The blood flow to her fingers had stopped. They were dying: gangrene had finally set in.
The last medical doctor decided he would have to cut off all ten of Safari's fingers. He said there were no other choices. Not only would they have to amputate all ten fingers, they would have to cut a nerve in her neck! He said a nerve problem in her neck was causing the blood vessels to spasm closed, cutting off the blood flow to her fingers. He told us that if he did not operate, the gangrene would spread to her hands and arms.
Needless to say, we were devistated. My wife and I were sitting a restaurant trying to discuss a life without fingers or hands? How would she eat? Could she handle children? How would it affect our lives?
Unknown to us, another restaurant patron sitting next to us overheard our conversation. Out of the blue, he suggested that we try a chiropractor. We had nothing to lose...we decided to try it.
We had never heard about chiropractic care. I had a great job in electronics, owned a nice home and had been happily married for three years. Going to a chiropractor was the last thing we considered.
Safari's first few visits seemed to make the pain worse. But after two weeks of chiropractic care, the purple/grey color in her fingers turned beet red! After two months of chiropractic care, her hands completely healed--after 2 years of hell from unnecessary drugs and a threatened ten-finger amputation!
TODAY MY WIFE HAS ALL TEN FINGERS. NO DRUGS, NO TEN-FINGER AMPUTATION!
I quit my job and went straight to chiropractic college, got my degree and my recieved my license as a Doctor of Chiropractic to practice. I've been in private practice ever since. Safari and our two children have all enjoyed perfect health ever since.
One of the biggest thrills of my life is giving people relief from their pain and suffering. What could be better? I am fortunate to be in a profession that can create miracles on a daily basis.
It is my dream that one day, the health care system in America will emphasize natural health care without unnecessary drugs and surgery. We will all live longer and healthier lives.
I am always availiable to you. I wish you, and your family, a long and healthy life.
