NH is a 83-year-old lady. Sometime in April 2009, she had coughs with white phlegm. She was given cough mixture to take. The problem was not resolved. On 19 October 2009, she went to a private hospital for further management. After a CT scan, she was given a week of antibiotics. This was not effective. Subsequently, the family was told that she had lung cancer. Due to her advanced age, neither the doctor nor the family were interested in any follow-up treatment. NH and her family came to seek our help on 23 October 2009. We never get to see NH although we noted that her son came to collect her herbs regularly. On 20 January 2012, i.e. 2 years and 3 months later – NH came to our centre with her son.
