LETTER IN RECOMMENDATION
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.
