Successful Treatment of Severe Chronic Back Pain
A male patient, 51 years old, suffered from severe and chronic back pain (almost ten out of ten) for at least eight years. He had been diagnosed with spinal stenosis (x-rays) and invertible disc protrusion. The patient had been identified as a candidate for surgery but did not consider this an option. Typical treatment options such as acupuncture or spinal decompression had been tried. Nothing turned out to be successful. Given the constant need for pain killers the patient had a strong desire for a better quality of life without drugs.

Dr. Smatt applied a variety of test work (hormone, body chemistry). Based on that he applied a combined treatment program composed of acupuncture (with micro current), nutritional and other herbal remedies (e.g. WHITEE patches) as well as dietary changes. The program consisted of two parts with one session per week. The first one lasted for two months, the second one for another couple of months. Main goals were to remove all grains from the diet and have the patient stay on it.

The results turned out great. The pain has been completely removed. The patient has much more energy and stayed on the dietary schedule. The good conditions have been sustained ever since.
