Case Study: Itchy Rash Causing Long Standing Insomnia

"When I first came to see Dr. Devi, I was only getting 2.5 hours of sleep at night because my entire back, arms, neck and head were covered with an itchy rash that I was constantly scratching raw. I couldn't sleep, I was terrified of eating, and I was despondent. In just a few treatments (basic treatments) the rash started to clear up and, within a week, I was sleeping through the night. What a blessing! I will be forever grateful, and I have gotten better and better."
