Ketsumeisei Case Studies
Last Updated: 02/18/2011
Below are numerous case studies involving patients treated using the philosophy of blended Eastern & Western therapies.
In the diabetes cases, oral antihyperglycemic agents and insulin injections had been administered with no improvement, but Ketsumeisei effectively lowered patients’ blood glucose levels.
In the cases relating to skin disorders, modern methods of steroidal ointments and other external medications proved ineffective, while the herbal compound Serendipi-Tea alleviated severe symptoms of eczema, acne and atopic dermatitis.
Diabetes Case Studies
Female, 85 years old
Diagnosed with Type II diabetes at the age of 48, the patient had been treated with oral antihyperglycemic agents. In April 1986, she was diagnosed with cataracts. She had a cerebral infarction in October of 2003, so an anticoagulant was added. At the time of examination in February 2004, she had partial paralysis of the left side, experienced difficulty in speaking, and was short of breath. Her fasting blood glucose level was 209mg/dL, HbA1C was 9.2%, and cholesterol level was 351mg/dL. Following 2 months of treatment with Wang’s Ketsumeisei (6g/day), her blood glucose has fallen to 182mg/dL, HbA1C was 10.1%, and cholesterol level was down to 319mg/dL. She also noticed an improvement in her breathlessness and numbness in the extremities. She continued to take Wang’s Ketsumeisei for over 3 years, and at present is able to walk once again and can even talk on the telephone. Her present blood glucose level is 136mg/dL, with HbA1C of 6.1%. She has stopped using anticoagulants.
Male, 48 years old
The patient had begun to experience unusual thirst and hunger at the age of 40. At the time of diagnosis with Type II diabetes, his blood glucose level was 400mg/dL. He had been treated with oral antihyperglycemic agents all along. At the time of examination in January 2007, the patient was listless, his hands shook, and after a short period of work, he perspired so much that his underwear was wet through. With his blood glucose level at 210mg/dL, he began using Wang’s Ketsumeisei (3g/day) in addition to the antihyperglycemic drug. After one month of treatment, there was a clear improvement in symptoms such as listlessness, and his desire to work returned. By the third month, his blood glucose level was down to about 186mg/dL, and his perspiration had returned to normal. He has continued on with treatment up to the present.
Male, 37 years old
At the age of 30, the patient had suffered a severe shock due to the death of his son. At the age of 31, he began to experience unusual throat dryness, his vision suddenly declined, and with a blood glucose level of 500mg/dL, he was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. He had been receiving insulin injections ever since. At the time of examination in December 2006, he was on leave from work because he tired very easily, and he could not see clearly. With insulin injections thrice daily (6 units in the morning, 10U at noon, and 12U in the evening), his blood glucose level was at 200mg/dL. Upon beginning treatment with Wang’s Ketsumeisei (3g/day), he noticed a remarkable improvement in his fatigue. By the second month of treatment with Ketsumeisei, he was able to reduce the insulin dosages to 4U in the morning, 7U at noon, and 8U in the evening, and his blood glucose level dropped to 190mg/dL. His vision improved, and he was able to return to work. He has continued on with Ketsumeisei treatment.
Male, 53 years old
At the time of diagnosis with Type II diabetes at the age of 47, the patient had a fasting blood glucose level of 141mg/dL, HbA1C of 6.5% (normal range = 4.3-5.7%), and neutral lipid level of 246mg/dL. He had been treated with oral antihyperglycemic agents. In 2002, he was hospitalized for treatment because of extreme listlessness and numbness in his feet (the patient himself refused insulin injections). At the time of release from the hospital, his fasting blood glucose level was 246mg/dL, HbA1C was 9.5%, and neutral lipid level was 237mg/dL. He also had numbness in both feet, sugar in the urine (+++), and was on leave from work. Immediately following release from the hospital, he added Wang’s Ketsumeisei (6g/day) to his drug regimen, and two months later, his listlessness had improved, and the numbness in his feet was gone. His fasting blood glucose level had fallen to 180mg/dL, HbA1C was 8.7%, and neutral lipid level was 146mg/dL. Urinary sugar declined to (+), and he returned to work. His dose was changed to 3g/day, and after 6 additional months of treatment, his condition had stabilized.
Male, 60 years old
Diagnosed with Type II diabetes at the age of 55, the patient had a fasting blood glucose level of 280mg/dL, steadily worsening numbness in his feet (peripheral nerve damage), an overall feeling of sluggishness, and was hard of hearing. Upon receiving insulin injections (9U/day), his blood glucose level fell to 180-190mg/dL, but symptoms such as numbness failed to improve. In August of 2004, Wang’s Ketsumeisei (3g/day) was added to his drug regimen. The numbness in his feet gradually disappeared, he began to feel far less lethargic, and he also reported that his hearing had improved. His fasting blood glucose level is presently maintained at 160~170mg/dL. He has continued on with treatment with Ketsumeisei at his own request.
Male, 66 years old
At the age of 50, the patient was diagnosed with Type II diabetes. One year prior to examination, he had been hospitalized for myocardial infarction. He had been receiving insulin injections for diabetes (16 units in the morning, 10U at noon, and 10U in the evening). At the time of examination, he had a fasting blood glucose level of 138mg/dL, neutral lipid level of 502mg/dL, cholesterol level of 250mg/dL, and HbA1C of 7.4%. He also had numbness in both feet, erectile dysfunction, and had to get up to urinate 4 times in the course of a night. Wang’s Ketsumeisei (6g/day) was added to his regimen, and after 2 months, the numbness was reduced, he was able to get an erection, and nocturnal urination frequency had been reduced to once per night. Fasting blood glucose level improved to 131mg/dL, neutral lipid level to 478mg/dL, cholesterol to 229mg/dL, and HbA1C to 7.7%.
Male, 46 years old
At the age of 26, the patient was diagnosed with Type I diabetes. He had been receiving insulin injections for diabetes all along (8 units in the morning, 12U in the evening). For the past 3 years, the numbness in his hands had gradually worsened. Symptoms observed at the time of examination included numbness in the hands (in particular, coldness in the fingers of the right hand), dulled senses, stiff neck and shoulders, pain and numbness around the hips, and an overall listlessness. He had a fasting blood glucose level of 120mg/dL and postprandial blood glucose level of 200mg/dL. Wang’s Ketsumeisei (3g/day) was added to his other medications, and after 2 months, his hands and fingers felt warmer and the feelings of pain and numbness had improved, although blood glucose level remained almost unchanged.
Female, 58 years old
The patient was diagnosed with Type II diabetes at the age of 46. She had been treated with oral antihyperglycemic agents. For 5 years, she had suffered from extreme listlessness and increasingly severe pain and numbness in the extremities, as well as palpitations and shortness of breath. In August 2005, her fasting blood glucose level was 269mg/dL, neutral lipid level was 460mg/dL, and she had sugar in her urine (+++). Wang's Ketsumeisei (6g/day) was added to her treatments, and after 3 months, her fasting blood glucose level had fallen to 200mg/dL, and clear improvements in both the shortness of breath and the pain and numbness in her hands and feet were noted. Her condition stabilized after one year of treatment with Wang's Ketsumeisei.
Male, 71 years old
The patient was diagnosed with Type II diabetes at the age of 46. He had been treated with oral antihyperglycemic agents ever since, but had recently developed conspicuous palpitations, shortness of breath, and numbness in his toes. His fasting blood glucose level was 140mg/dL. Wang’s Ketsumeisei (3g/day) was added to his drug regimen for 3 months, following which the numbness disappeared, and symptoms of palpitations and shortness of breath also improved.
Male, 40 years old
The patient had been diagnosed with Type II diabetes two years prior to examination (both father and mother also had diabetes). He had refused drug therapy. At the time of examination, he complained of unusually intense hunger, lethargy, and frequent urination, among other symptoms. His fasting blood glucose level was 180mg/dL. He began using Wang’s Ketsumeisei (3g/day), and after 2 months of treatment, the abnormal hunger had vanished, his fatigue had improved, and his fasting blood glucose level was down to 165mg/dL. He is continuing on with treatment.
Eczema Case Studies
Female, five years old
At the age of two months, the patient developed eczema on the face and neck, which was temporarily relieved with ointment. From around the age of 2 years, the condition gradually worsened, and external medications such as steroids were used. Thereafter, repeated cycles of amelioration and exacerbation continued, and from the age of about three, the eczema spread to the child’s entire body, and her skin thickened. When steroid use was discontinued, a rebound occurred, and because of the worsening symptoms, steroid use was discontinued for about six months. Before beginning treatment with Wang’s Serendipi-Tea, the skin over most of the patient’s body was red and swollen with lichenification, scarlet spots, and scars from scratching, and she got little sleep because of the intense itching. The patient was also allergic to eggs, and her symptoms worsened when eggs were consumed. She tested positive for egg antibodies in blood tests. Just one day after beginning treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea, the itching had lessened, and it gradually became possible for her to sleep. After two weeks of treatment, she was even able to eat eggs with no problem. Simultaneously with improvement of the dermatitis, scaly skin temporarily increased, but by the fourth week after beginning treatment, this too began to abate. By the fourth month, the patient was testing negative for egg antibodies in blood tests, and her skin had almost returned to normal. There was no subsequent recurrence of symptoms.
Male, four months old
The patient developed eczema centering on the face and neck at the age of two months, and although symptoms were decreased through use of a mild steroidal preparation, they recurred at the age of four months. The eczema spread to the patient’s entire body, and the child often cried at night from the itching, also suffering complications of asthma when symptoms were severe. He was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis. Because external medications were ineffective, treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea was begun. The patient was given about one packet of medication over the course of three days, mixed with milk. On the fourth day, the asthma symptoms had disappeared, and there was an improvement in the skin as well. After three months of treatment with Serendipi-Tea, the patient had returned to normal.
Female, nine years old
The patient developed eczema on her face, arms, elbows, and knees around the age of 4, due to food allergies to milk, soybeans, pork, beef, fish, buckwheat, white sugar, etc. She was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis. Various external medications where tried, but in accordance with the parents’ wishes, steroids were not used. The patient was treated with Wang's Serendipi-Tea, and within several days, skin pathology improved markedly, with allergies to all foods except milk disappearing after four weeks of treatment. After eight weeks of treatment, all food allergies were completely cured. Pathologies due to atopic dermatitis cleared up at approximately the same time.
Female, seventeen years old
The patient developed eczema two months after birth, and the symptoms were alleviated with external medication (type unknown). When the child began school, the eczema reappeared on her face, neck, elbows, knees, etc., and was temporary alleviated with steroidal preparations. When treatment was subsequently discontinued, the symptoms returned, and eczema spread to her entire body. Symptoms did not improve even when a stronger steroidal medication was used, and her skin became dry and gradually thickened (lichenified lesions). About half a year before beginning treatment with Wang’s Serendipi-Tea, use of steroidal medications was discontinued because they failed to suppress itching. A rebound reaction to discontinuance of steroids occurred, but the patient continued to use non-steroidal ointments, and symptoms gradually worsened. For the first four weeks of treatment with Wang’s Serendipi-Tea, the patient took two packets per day; dosage was subsequently reduced to one packet per day. As itching lessened, scaliness temporarily increased, but hard, thick skin gradually normalized, and after one year the patient’s skin was restored to its original glossy texture.
Female, 23 years old
The patient developed eczema in early childhood but was not bothered by symptoms during the elementary school years and even enjoyed swimming at the time. In junior high school, she sometimes had papules on her elbows, but when she advanced to high school, eczema reappeared on her face, neck, knees, and back, so she began to use steroids. A cycle of lessening and worsening of symptoms ensued, the eczema spread to her entire body, and she suffered a loss of pigmentation in the affected skin on her neck. Because of the unsightly appearance of her skin, she was unable to participate in swimming from junior high school onward.
Two weeks prior to beginning treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea, there was a rebound reaction in response to discontinuation of steroid use, with complications of hives and asthma. At the time she was examined, the patient had asthma and conjunctivitis, her face and neck were red and swollen, and red spots and scars from scratching were observed on her four limbs. Two days after beginning treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea, her asthma disappeared, and the itching was lessened. Two weeks later, the conjunctivitis had improved markedly. As the skin inflammation abated, scaliness increased, but this too improved in the fourth week of treatment, and after six months of treatment some pigmentation loss remained, but otherwise the patient had returned to normal.
Several months later, signs of recurrence were temporarily seen, and upon questioning the patient, it was learned that she had been getting only two to three hours of sleep per night due to her job and intensive studies in a foreign language. She was advised to take Wang's Serendipi-Tea for two weeks and also to correct unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as inadequate sleep. Following this, her symptoms were completely cured, and now, two years later, there has been no recurrence of symptoms to date. The patient herself has been very happy with the results, saying, "Thanks to this medication, I am again able to participate in my favorite sport, swimming."
Male, 24 years old
The patient began to suffer from eczema in early childhood. While in middle school, he developed itchy eczema in the bends of his elbows and knees and was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis. From the time he entered high school, eczema appeared on his face, neck, and back, so he was treated with steroidal ointment. Subsequently a cycle of lessening and worsening symptoms began, and his skin gradually thickened (lichenification). Half a year prior to being examined, he stopped using steroidal ointment, and at the time of examination, he had conjunctivitis, his face and neck were red and swollen, and he had scarlet spots and scars from scratching on his trunk and limbs. For the first four weeks of treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea, he took two packets per day, and subsequently one packet per day. After one week, the conjunctivitis had clearly improved, the itching was reduced, and although scaliness of the skin temporarily increased (giving the mistaken impression that the skin condition had actually worsened), the hard, thickened skin was gradually metabolized, and after four months of treatment, he had returned almost entirely to normal. After an additional three months of treatment, his skin had cleared up naturally, and a complete cure had been achieved.
Female, 24 years old
The patient first developed eczema on her face, elbows, and knees around the age of 23 and had been using steroidal medications as treatment. Three weeks prior to beginning treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea, she stopped using steroids and a rebound reaction occurred. Upon beginning treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea, the itching was reduced, skin pathology improved, and in three months, she had returned to normal.
Male, 60 years old
The patient first developed eczema on his neck, elbows, and knees around the age of 46, and for the first five years, he had mainly used steroidal ointments. He subsequently developed a resistance to these, so he switched to non-steroidal ointments and anti-histamine-type internal medications. During this time, the affected skin area gradually hardened and itching continued, with asthma also developing in the final two years prior to beginning treatment. Exacerbation of symptoms with consumption of alcohol was also observed. Three days after beginning treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea, his asthma had disappeared and itching was reduced. After eight months of continuous treatment, he had returned to normal.
Male, 25 years old
The patient developed eczema chiefly on his hands when he was in the third year of junior high school and was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis. The eczema was temporarily cured by a steroidal medication, but it subsequently spread to his neck. He discontinued steroid use about six months prior to beginning treatment with Wang’s Serendipi-Tea. After three months of treatment, his condition had returned to normal, and there was no recurrence.
Female, 26 years old (case with complications of ulcerative colitis)
One year prior to beginning treatment with Wang’s Serendipi-Tea, the patient developed symptoms of insomnia, stomachache, constipation, and blood in the stools. At the same time, eczema appeared on her face, back, and lower limbs, so she was examined at a university hospital and diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and atopic dermatitis. She was treated with a Pentasan-based oral medication and an external steroidal preparation, but not only did the itching not improve, she suffered a rebound reaction upon discontinuation of steroids. To improve her atopic constitution, she was treated with Wang’s Serendipi-Tea, and after three days, her itching was relieved and she was able to get a good night’s sleep. After three months of treatment, pathology of lower limbs and back vanished, and facial pathology was also greatly improved. At the same time, symptoms of colitis such as stomachache were also cured.
Male, 29 years old (complications of liver immune function impairment)
The patient developed eczema in early childhood, and his symptoms were relieved with external medications, but from the time he reached junior high, and on through high school, eczema reappeared on his arms, elbows, and the bends of his knees, and its severity worsened. Around the age of 25, the eczema spread to his face and neck, and at the same time autoimmune liver function impairment was observed. He was treated with a weak steroidal preparation, but his symptoms neither improved nor worsened. At the discretion of the patient himself (doctor of internal medicine), use of external medications had been discontinued six months prior to beginning treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea. The patient took two packets of Wang's Serendipi-Tea per day, and from the third day of treatment, the itching was reduced. By the fourth week, it had disappeared, and as the skin gradually returned to normal, liver function also was normalized.
Female, 31 years old
The patient developed atopic dermatitis at the age of three months, and temporary relief was obtained with anti-allergy agents, etc. From age 13, her symptoms gradually worsened, and she was treated with steroidal ointments, anti-allergy agents, and anti-histamines. She had tried to stop using steroids several times between the age of 20 and 30, but each time, a rebound occurred and symptoms worsened, so for a year prior to beginning treatment with Wang’s Serendipi-Tea, she had refrained from using steroids. At the time of examination, she was suffering from asthma and conjunctivitis, her face and neck were red and swollen, and she had red spots and scars from scratching on all four limbs. Itching was unbearably intense, but three days after beginning treatment with Wang’s Serendipi-Tea, her asthma had been cured and itching was reduced. After two weeks, a marked improvement in conjunctivitis was observed. As her skin inflammation improved, scaliness increased, but from the fourth week of treatment, this too abated, and by the sixth week, she had returned almost to normal.
Female, 34 years old
The patient developed eczema of the lips and area around the mouth about twelve years prior to beginning treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea. She had symptoms of redness, swelling, itching, and pain. She had tried both steroidal (though not for the year preceding treatment with Wang's Serendipi-Tea) and non-steroidal external medications but experienced a repeated cycle of alleviated then worsening symptoms for the three years prior to beginning treatment. In recent years, symptoms had leveled off, neither worsening nor improving, so she had suspended use of external medications for the year prior to beginning treatment. One week after beginning to drink Wang's Serendipi-Tea, improvement was observed, and after three straight months of treatment, she had returned to normal.
