“Thank you for ALL you are doing for me! Not only is my vision better, but my state of mind is so much better. You have given me hope for not only having healthy eyes, but improving other health issues, too. For that I profusely thank you, Mats. You just don’t know what it’s like to live in fear and without a lot of hope, then to be given a glimmer of it again. Thank you for giving that to me and thank you for allowing God to work through you to heal. You are blessed!”
“I went to see Mats Sexton in June of 2011. I was diagnosed with macular degeneration in April, and had been seeking complimentary treatments since that time. I found out about acupuncture as a treatment for AMD through internet searches. After several inquiries about who did these treatments, l was told about Mats, and called him in Minneapolis. At the time that I went to see Mats I had already had one injection for the wet form of AMD in my left eye. I also have dry macular degeneration in my right eye. I was pretty discouraged and worried about my eyesight. From the beginning Mats was easy to talk to, and very helpful answering my questions, both on the phone and when I arrived in Minneapolis.
I received 15 acupuncture treatments from Mats over the period of one week. At the conclusion of these, my eye sight improved to the point where I was reading two more lines on the chart than I had been before. I’ll never forget traveling back to Providence on the plane, and reading comfortably in kind of poor airplane light. My vision was much clearer than it had been before I started acupuncture. Mats was also very helpful in advising me about herbs that are good for AMD, as well as advice about nutrition.
I have continued to see my retina specialist on a regular basis. After a series of 3 Avastin injections, I currently do not have the wet form of AMD, and my vision in that eye is 20/20. My vision in the right eye has remained the same. My doctor tells me that he is very pleased, but he is not as pleased as I am. I really believe I owe my continued good “reports” to taking care of my overall health, and that includes continued acupuncture treatments and the herbs that I take on a regular basis. For this, I thank the Pin Doctor. It was well worth the trip to Minneapolis!”
“I was told that I had early stages of Macular Degeneration in 1999. I saw a specialist
every six months and with each visit I was told that the MD was becoming progressively worse and doctors couldn’t do anything slow down the progression. I continued going to the specialist and in 2003 my right eye progressed to Wet Macular Degeneration and I was told that could be treated with an injection of Avastin every six to eight weeks. I continued receiving these injections until 2009 when I was at a party and I was talking to a person who tried Acupuncture for MD. I had never heard of this type of treatment and was not sure about whether or not this would really work. I continued going to the specialist a few more times with the same results and finally decided I had to try the acupuncture.
I called the person who had tried the acupuncture treatment and he told me about the treatments and how his vision had improved. I called Mats and went to his office for an interview and started treatments in October of 2009 and have been seeing him ever since.
My vision improved to a point that was unbelievable to me and my wife. The improvement did not happen overnight. It took a few months and you have to be patient and make up your mind that you will stick with the program.
I am very happy with the results and have recommended Mats to many friends and one who had dry MD in both eyes and had very poor vision. She is also very happy with her improved vision. Mats is very easy to work with and cares very much about helping people to improve their vision.”
“I have wet macular degeneration that caused me to go “reading blind” in my right eye at age 28. I am now 75 years old and have macular degeneration in the other eye. I have done much research on acupuncture along with proper nutrition. For eight years I have been a patient of Mats Sexton. His treatments have improved and maintained my eye sight. Currently, I continue with periodic maintenance visits approximately every three months for three days at a time. Mats is well studied and professional as well as personable and caring. I am grateful for the help I have received.”
“I am 85 years old and I came to Mats Sexton for treatment of macular degeneration with Micro-Acupuncture for 5 days. Following the treatments, I played golf and could see the ball better than I could before the acupuncture. Also, my color vision had improved. I would recommend this treatment to people with macular degeneration.”
“My acupuncture experience with the Pindoctor was a pleasant and successful one. I was treated by Mats Sexton for my macular degeneration. After I returned to Iowa, I waited about four weeks and then I had my eyes tested by my optometrist. The results showed that my vision had improved about 15% and I could read two more lines down the eye chart that before I had the acupuncture treatments. I found that Mats Sexton is a very dedicated and caring person. I will continue to go to his center for further eye treatments.”
“I was diagnosed with macular degeneration in January 2002 and have had laser surgery and Visudyne due to the bleeding in my left eye. Mats performs some eye tests before treatment and then after a series so that you can tell if you have made any progress. My right eye has gone from 20/400 to as good as 20/120 and the peripheral vision has cleared.”
