Hi.. I have been treated four times by Dr. Mark Hutto of Atlanta. The first course of treatments was 15 consecutive ones; it worked very well, with remission after 5 treatments- then 10 more for *insurance*. I have been back 3 times for twice-daily booster sessions of six trains- these have worked very well, also. At present, it has been four months since my last treqtment, but I'm still in remission. Dr. Hutto himself feels that it's a short-term treatment for most people, which needs to be repeated at monthly intervals.

It is expensive- $170.00 per treatment, and, as it's not FDA-aproved, insurance won't cover it. I was able to deduct the entire cost, including travel and lodging, from my taxes- but that was only after having paid for it myself.

I think there is a good chance it will be FDA-approved in 2005 or 6, which will make it much easier to obtain. Generally, it helps about 2/3rd of the people who try it.
