i had excruciating sciatica for 3 months - unable to sleep, crying day and night - before I saw Dr. Trogawa. Had tried every form of allopathic medicine, Chinese herbs & acupuncture, chiropractic, etc. to no avail. After a week of Tibetan herbs, given me on Dakini day, I was cured for life. It seemed miraculous. I asked him some time later in Katmandu what was in the pills he gave me. "Kidney tonic herbs" was the basic answer. I'm eternally grateful to him, and miss him, wish I could see and talk to him. He had a profound effect on my life. Always felt like an old friend. A lecture he gave on Tibetan medicine turned a fellow acupuncture student into a Buddhist practitioner on the spot. I smile to think of Dr. Trogawa. Beyond the aristocrat he was, a great bodhisattva.
