In 1995, Sam ruptured a disc in his cervical spine compressing
his spinal cord. This resulted in debilitating pain, numbness and
loss of fine motor skills in his extremities. Neurosurgeons
concluded that without surgical intervention he could be
paralyzed from the neck down. However, surgeons cautioned
due to the severity of the injury a positive outcome could not be
guaranteed, and the symptoms could continue. Feeling
hopeless by this discouraging prognosis, Sam postponed
surgery and started seeking alternative methods for pain relief.
With the help of Western and Eastern Medicines, along with his
strong desire to regain his health, Sam slowly recovered from
It was through his experience that Sam gained an
understanding and appreciation for healing methods which
offered an alternative to surgery and avoided a life long
regiment of pain medication.
