Miracle treatment. Dr Ke was great. The combination of the herbs I was given and the diet have totally cleared my extensive eczema within two months of starting the treatment. The eczema at the time covered my whole body and now it is totally clear. Thanks to Dr Ke.

I just want to say that the treatment that I received for my sciatica pain was remarkable. Thanks especially to Gulshan and Nathalie for their knowledge, patience and comforting words whilst conducting the acupuncture sessions.
I am now feeling so much better overall, more energised and cleansed.
It is a wonderful clinic, so relaxing, with great staff too.
I highly recommend getting treatment here.... Thank you all so much.
An excellent opening ceremony – it was very well organised and enjoyable.

Dear Dr Ke,
Last week I received the first scan results after taking the Chinese tea for 18 months. You can see against the original scan, before your treatment, the great difference. The walls (structures) in the ovarian cysts have completely gone!! And the uterus is smaller than it was, with one glorious calcified fibroid! I never thought that a calcified fibroid would thrill me, but there you have it!
Thank you, thank you for your knowledge, patience and kindness. It is all these things that are true healing. I will make another appointment mid-July, so see you then! Kindest regards. 2003
I first came to see Dr Ke because of an ovarian cyst, which required a surgery I did not want to have. After three months of treatment, the cyst was gone. I have continued treatment with Dr Ke for small ailments over the past 20 years. Chinese Medicine is highly effective, particularly as an antidote to our fast paced living. The healing is furthered by the compassion, kindness and knowledge of Dr Ke, a physician and friend for life!

I had suffered from a form of malaria for 2 years with no allopathic treatment. I responded within one week to Dr Ke’s treatment and my energy levels rose immediately.
- S Birrell
I definitely benefited from acupuncture. I was very ill following encephalitis and had a lot of problems relating to heat in my body which was relieved somewhat. I do not think I would have gotten to this stage in my recovery if I had not have had acupuncture…
- W Redmond
Acupuncture has helped my greatly. After each session I felt overwhelmed with lots of energy and had a happy glow on my face. Hair texture has improved and generally felt happy and cheerful…
- M Gohil
My heart condition has improved greatly. I have always been delighted with Dr Ke’s treatment over the years i.e. very courteous and anxious to help with any health problems…
- R Dolan
Dr Ke emanates good health and well being and inspires confidence in my ability to get well. Psychologically I always felt better for seeing him and the remedies he prescribed gently and slowly put me on the road to recovery. He was unfailingly kind, supportive and non-judgmental and I shall always be grateful to him for his skill and dedication. I have recommended him to others.

From our feedback questionnaires, many delegates gave you a top rating for your lecture.

Dear Dr Ke, thank you very much for enabling me to have a new lease of life. I’m really grateful to you.
- C Foutley
Dr Ke has improved my living function after conventional doctors said there was nothing they can do but monitor my condition. There is no cure. Chinese medicine has also helped me cope psychologically with my illness.
- D Fordham
Dr Ke is a genius! His understanding and immediate recognition of where and how to ideally treat the problem is fantastic.
- M Stakol
Dr Ke was a god sent to me. For many years I had suffered with skin disorder and has tried many if not all general remedies from Western doctors, having seen many specialists. Over many years now Dr Ke has healed me and my original condition no longer affects me. I continue to see Dr Ke for general well being. I am in no doubt without Dr Ke’s treatments, I would not be able to enjoy my life to the extent I now do, not only in body but mind and spirit. I cannot speak highly enough of him.
Dr Ke has treated me for many years, where the National Health Service tried to suppress and dry up my poor skin problems, Dr Ke has improved my life enormously, without his help and treatment, I would not be able to enjoy the full life style which I lead now. For my general well-being I would see Dr Ke before my local GP.
- M Enright
I suffered from severe diarrhoea for about six weeks and due to this was very weak and dehydrated. I went to the Asante Clinic and was first seen by Dr Ke and later by Dr Gu. After about two days, my diarrhoea improved and in one week had cleared up. My weight, that I had lost during my illness, started to improve and my strength has started to return and I am starting to feel my old self again. Thanks to Dr Ke and Dr Gu.
- A Belbin
A few months ago I was diagnosed with diabetes. The estimate was that it began around 12 years ago and it had remained undetected all that time. My blood sugar level was very high.
I saw a range of Western physicians, who recommended immediate medication, with a likely escalation to other more powerful treatments and side effects, I wanted to see if I could find a gentler path, one that was less intrusive without creating drug dependency while returning my physical system into balance.
After visiting the Asante Center for Chinese Medicine, and discussing matters with Dr Ke, I have followed his recommendations, These involve taking Chinese medicine, a significant change of lifestyle – which I follow rigorously and an increase in physical activity like walking more every day – nothing extreme.
After six months, my blood sugar level is normal, I have more energy, and live well. My Western doctor used the word “brilliant” to describe my progress.
- D Yagtug
The short time, this year, coming to Asante for treatment for my sciatica and hayfever, the quality of my conditions have improved greatly in that
The hayfever doesn’t drain as much for use of a box of tissue for this time of the year, especially the last month of June when pollen was high, I usually have to go to bed
Secondly the quality of the sciatica has improved in the walking and the sitting which have made me feel better about the condition of my body
In general I am pleased with my treatments while my body smiles more and my GP not so happy in smiles.
Thank you Asante & Dr Yin!!!
- D McCuller
Excellent – I am having steady progress.
- B Kenny
I have been visiting since the age of 2 and during the time it has increased dramatically my state of health, wellbeing and mind. Dr Ke has been a great help to me and without the Chinese expertise I am sure that my state of health would not be as good.
- N Shreeve-Smith
I was in constant pain and facing major back surgery before I met Dr Ke. After a short treatment, I was living life to full again. It was nothing short of a miracle.
- N Band
We’d like to share the great news of our recent arrival, Theo and Chloe were born on June 16th at UCH. They are doing great!
We would like to thank you for your treatment for Weinnie pre-pregnancy and throughout the first trimester. Without your help, our dream of parenthood would not have been achieved so smoothly. We appreciate your effort and admire your medical knowledge tremendously

I found acupuncture treatments extremely useful during my pregnancy during the summer of 2006.
The hospital suggested a treatment when I was hospitalized so with nothing else to do I thought it was worth a try. Thereafter I actively sought treatment from the hospital to encourage induction and I had no problem in receiving treatment when-ever I needed it.
I had low energy levels and a breech baby and was hospitalized at 34/35 weeks due to low amniotic fluid levels. I received two treatments and just days later my baby turned into the right position and the fluid level returned to normal. I also then had excellent levels of energy right up to and beyond the birth. This was in dramatic contrast to my first pregnancy where I was extremely tired at the latter end of the pregnancy.
I was also induced during my first pregnancy as I ran two weeks overdue and had high amniotic fluid levels. I had a series of 4 acupuncture treatments after I first went over-due in my second pregnancy and after a belt and braces session at around 10 days overdue I then went into labour a couple of hours later naturally. There is no doubt in my mind that the sessions definitely helped me not to have to face another really painful induction
The sessions were excellent. Relaxed and comforting. I was very sceptical that anything could be done but thought there was no harm in trying. However I am absolutely positive that acupuncture helped my two conditions through my second pregnancy. I just think it is vital to have this service alongside traditional methods The practitioners were very good at showing me points to press, particularly for induction which were really useful. It felt like you were a really important part of the process A lot of time and trouble was taken to understand all the issues surrounding my pregnancy including general concerns of stress/anxiety, which I think made me realise that you are not a passive recipient of health care, your participation and involvement can make all the difference
I filled in feedback forms after treatments and also the hospital form after delivery. I think it is often important to allow a day or two between receiving treatment and ‘results’, sometimes you don’t get immediate reactions to treatments.”
- N Shepperd
The weekly sessions were incredibly useful. They effectively sorted out my heartburn, swollen ankles and sleepless nights. My pregnancy was smooth considering what I have heard from other first-time mothers, and I believe it is due to the weekly sessions that I have with the Whittington Hospital.
I was 10 days overdue and I was booked in for an induction, but I was given a few sessions of acupuncture before the induction. After one particular intensive session of acupuncture, my contractions started the very night, avoiding the uncomfortable induction.
My practitioner also showed me how to use the ear seeds and acupressure points by pressing them between treatments, and also asked for feedback on the service each time I saw him.
The service has certainly helped me better understand the concept of holistic living. From consultation, to the tongue analysis and to the needle points, the treatments were consistently holistic. It heightened my awareness that my body is not made of separate parts
- R Wong
It has been very helpful to get my energy moving in a positive direction. Bells Palsy much improved – almost gone.
- S Saradananda
When I first met Dr Ke I was suffering from a major bile leak into a drain due to complications from the surgery I had had. Dr Ke said that I would begin to feel better after two weeks of taking the herbs. I was highly sceptical. But within two weeks the leak was nearly dried up and within a month the drain was removed. I stick to a strict diet and take my herbs daily and feel better and better all the time. I have now more energy than I have had for years. Dr Ke I have always found to be totally professional and straight talking but also optimistic- just what I need.
- N Weisters
My problems were pain in hip and painful ankle. It was much appreciated and should I need treatment again I would come back.
- J Joly
When I first contacted Dr Ke 17 years ago, my life was in pretty poor condition due to intense fatigue. My regular GP checked me again and again and concluded there was nothing wrong. Dr Ke thought differently and gave me treatment which slowly but surely brought me back to some resemblance of normality and for that I will be eternally grateful.

I am healthy and 5 years clear of cancer…
- S T, London
The staff and doctors are all very friendly. The first time I had treatment (open day), it had an amazing effect on me…
- B I, London
The treatment that I received helped me to conceive naturally after being told by western doctors that it could not be done. I always feel better after the treatment even if I had a headache it always goes away after having acupuncture. I am very happy and fully trust and recommend acupuncture in Asante Academy to anyone who asks me about alternative medicine. Thank you all very much!

Hello Gulshan, I just wanted to say thank you for the 10 weeks of acupuncture - my mum was in top form in Ireland and loved telling people about you and the acupuncture; without this course of treatment I do not think my mother would have had the belief that she could make the journey
to see her home city, friends and family.

I suffered an injury to the left side of the body following a road accident in December 2013 leading to me experiencing persistent pain. I had an MRi scan indicating I had a slipped disc and, following regular physiotherapy failing to resolve the issue, planned to have a surgical intervention scheduled for December 2014.
I commenced treatment with Gulshan Noorani in November 2014 and following twice weekly treatments , I was able to cancel my operation in January 2015. I have made a full recovery and I am now able to restart strenuous physical sport in March 2015, which I believe to be down to the quality of treatment I have received. I have no doubt that had I continued without treatment from Gulshan that I would have had several expensive and painful operations without the full recovery I am now enjoying, and I feel happy in recommending her services for similar medical conditions.
- A McDonnell, London
Very happy that the service is offered as I would never have considered acupuncture as a treatment.
I think this is great that you have complementary acupuncture sessions here. I was very excited to hear about this, as it is natural and ancient (which is very good) treatment.
It is a very positive offering. I would recommend this service to other pregnant friends Staff is very friendly and helpful.
I was surprised it was available and very pleased to be able to benefit from it.
I think it's fantastic that this has been available to me. On telling people what has been offered here people are incredible impressed and surprised especially when I tell them how much it has helped me with pain, energy, and the breech baby
I think it's a wonderful thing. It really is a real treat / help during these difficult months.
Really positive that this is offered. I wish I had used it earlier on!
The service is fantastic. Without the service, I would be unable to continue working through my pregnancy. The service is also very flexible - which is helpful.
Acupuncture has certainly added value to the services offered by Whittington hospital. To date, the Maternity Day Unit staff has been far more helpful and consistent in their level of service and care compared to the services provided by the midwifes during my other appointments.
Very positive. I am very impressed that I was offered this service and it has helped greatly. Thank you
I am very pleased and think it is a very positive thing for pregnant women.
It's a great service and all my experiences at the Whittington have been positive.
I think it is good that the department offers acupuncture for pain when other forms of pain relief are limited.
It's a great service
It's a brilliant service to offer. It has made me more open to trying new things.
I think it's great that this service is offered for free as an alternative way to manage pain + assist with induction.
I think it is wonderful that you offer acupuncture for pregnant women.
Have no complain, for me everything was good. Staff was lovely. Can`t ask for anything more.
Excellent! The care I have received from the practitioners has been superb.
Yes, it is a fantastic addition to the excellent service.
Surpassed my expectations. I was not expecting to be seen so regularly and for the treatments to be so thorough (i.e. adapted as I progressed through my pregnancy)
It is great that hospital provided this alternative to pregnant women to assist during pregnancy. I am interested to use acupuncture as pain relief for birth and I hope it will be possible. I believe it is a huge achievement for natural /less medicalised labours.
Acupuncture has provided me with calming pain relief. It has helped me feel better throughout my pregnancy as well as helped me feel better about the care I have been receiving from the NHS.
Amazing staff, great ward
I think it is a fantastic service to offer pregnant women. It is one of the reasons I wanted to have my baby at Whittington. It provides an alternative to more Western medicine and is more personal
The acupuncture has been a very relaxing experience and although I still have nausea/vomiting, it has greatly helped in other areas where I was having problems. It is an excellent service. I wish I had been made aware of this earlier (in the 1st treatment) by my midwife
I feel it has allowed women such as myself to see the benefits of alternative treatments. I would never have done acupuncture before this.
I feel very fortunate as I have received such a wonderful treatment. I wouldn't had been able to afford this treatment privately. Many thanks.
I think it is brilliant and has added to the preparement greatly. Everyone is so helpful + lovely + supportive
I think is a great service; very beneficial
I really appreciate that this is an offered service. It's something that sets Whittington apart from other hospitals.
Really positively. I have found midwifes busy and physio referral slow & inefficient. The acupunture service made up for this; filled a gap in my case and provided great listening. Thank you. Pain/discomfort reduced. It made me feel that someone cared and was helping with my issues. After multiple delays to see physio, the efficiency of acupuncture service reinstalled my confidence.
Amazing to have this service - real source of support during difficult periods of pregnancy. Staff have been fantastic - very supportive and friendly.
It's something that definitely works (at least, it has for me). So it's great that it's available to access through the hospital.
This service is vital and a marvellous assistance. It has made a huge positive impact on my pregnancy + general well-being. My practicioner, Nathalie, is fantastic and I look forward to all my appointments.
It made it a positive experience. If all services were as pleasant and positive, maternity dep. Would be perfect. The service is pleasantly relaxing, stress free, seen for app as arranged. The acupuncturist Nathalie is key asset. My body has been coping with pain much better thanks to the treatments and availability has been instant!
It greatly enhanced my view of the maternity department. I am very impressed and I have been recommending the Whittington hospital widely. It greatly relieved the muscle pain. I was able to sleep better after I'd had treatment.
I feel being looked after and cared for better at the maternity department. It has added value to the maternity services and definitely a very positive addition to have.
In a very positive way. Having the option of this service was fantastic. It did help a lot and spared me the use of pain medication.
It was great, help me a lot with morning sickness, nausea. I couldn't eat or drink before, but now I can. Should introduce acupuncture to pregnant women who suffer from morning sickness.
Great service for women. Experienced high levels of nerve pain + only negative is that the treatment is top floor, far back of hospital. Very painful to get to with sciatica piain.
I think it was amazing that I was able to get a treatment very soon after I asked for an appointment. And it's excellent that the hospital works with such techniques.
Very good to offer alternative therapies like this.
Great this is offered by the NHS.
Think acupuncture is fantastic addition to maternity department and have had it 2nd + 3rd pregnancy. Really holistic approach.
Very well. Different kind of practice, natural therapy which is very good along with the traditional methods.
I really appreciated that the maternity department made acupuncture available to women; I think it's great.
SPD slightly benefited, back pain greatly benefited; such a wonderful service! I feel privileged to get the opportunity to have access to acupuncture.
Offering acupuncture is incredible. So good to have a natural alternative to medicine that really works. Having it available at the Whittington for maternity greatly improves the hospital. I LOVE IT. Thank you!
It has really helped me a lot. The baby was transverse + acupuncture turned him. Also, I was in a lot of pain with the sciatica + it has almost cured that. I think the experience has been amazing (although my midwife did not tell me, a friend did).
I think it's an excellent service that I feel lucky to have been offered.
Very helpful & beneficial to have such a holistic treatment approach. Made the overall experience very positive.
I am very privileged to be able to have acupuncture treatments. Such a wonderful service! And professional and extremely caring staff (Nathalie)!
I think it is brilliant that acupuncture is offered within the maternity department. It has made such a positive difference to my pregnancy and I hope that more hospitals will also be able to offer it. More expectant mothers can benefit!
Positively affected - a good alternative service to physio and great it is on the NHS. I have recommended to friends.
It is a fantastic service offered to pregnant ladies which is a wonderful benefit to people who need it for whatever reason.
It's a service I did not know it existed, so feel extremely lucky to have had a chance to make the most of it during my pregnancy.
I would definitely recommend the maternity department / based on the availability of acupuncture treatment.
From my point of view, it has been great to have alternative western medicine and acupuncture medicine at the same time, makes me feel benefit in all ways.
Have always been able to get an appointment and it has been such a great ressource to have on hand. They are a great team and it is such a wonderful thing to offer.
I think it's great to have access to this here. I have a slight phobia of hospitals. So it's been good to come here regularly for a positive reason.
If it helped my health slightly or greatly depends on the session. Nice to have support during morning sickness as ist such a miserable time. Ist nice to see the Whittington embracing maternal health in a more holistic manner. Acupuncture seems a worthy addition to its service.
