- Disease name: Lung Cancer, stage 4

The patient was in such a serious condition that she could not receive any surgery, not to mention radiation or chemotherapy treatments. She suffered from frequent coughing, shortness of breath, sleep disorder, poor digestion, poor appetite, depression, and so on. After three months of receiving acumoxa treatments at the clinic and self moxa care, she was able to walk up the stairs. She was relieved of coughing, and she slept sound sleep. She regained strength enough to go to mountains.
