"There is no question in my mind that the profound cessation of 'negative' symptoms I had been experiencing was due to your healing....It was quite amazing to see how after a few years of searching for some answers, I obtained such immediate results from you," Dixie Kapchinski, Colorado.
"I no longer showed any signs of a prolapsed mitral valve," Joyce Suenobu, retired teacher, Pahala, Hawai'i.
"I have found that with God's help and working with Dr. Swartwout, nothing is impossible," Rick Kobayashi, athlete, Hilo, Hawai'i.
"I noticed an increase in strength, especially in my bench press where I thought to have reached my 'non-gaining period' for over a year. My bench press went up 20 pounds more. Also, my squats (leg work out) increased greatly. It went from about 270 pounds to 335 pounds. I have tried supplements, but never before have I experienced physical gains like this and it all happened in a period of a month, which was when I was under treatment," Harry Takiue, Jr., University of Arizona.
