Laurie Beck talks about spontaneous healing to Dr. Oz

One date she will never forget, though, is May 18, 2006, when she walked into the Tortoise Clinic in Santa Rosa Beach.

On the advice of her mother, Beck had gone to the clinic to try acupuncture.

During the procedure, 50 needles were stuck in her body.

When she started to leave, she was given a bag of herbs to brew and told to drink 30 ounces a day for three months. 

"I knew nothing about Chinese medicine, and the mixture was horrible, but I did it," she recalls.

When she returned to Boston three months later for a re-check of her blood, doctors were astonished to find her white blood count was down from 70,000 to 13,000.

"My doctor asked me what I was doing, and I told him I had removed all stressors from my life and had started the Chinese herbs," she said. "They sent me home and told me to come back in three more months."
