Treating Hyper-salivation with TCM Herbal Medicine

ABSTRACT Background: In Western medicine, the doctor looks for specific causes of diseases, and focuses on particular body components to treat. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) doesn't work in this way. There are fundamental differences in principles, diagnosis and treatment approaches between Western medicine and Chinese medicine.

Therefore, TCM has strength for treating unknown and difficult diseases because when the body regains it’s normal balance and physiology, itself will treat the disease as long as it happened within

Successful Prolotherapy for Chronic Pain

Prolotherapy or Regenerative Injection Therapy (RIT) is a simple and natural nonsurgical technique that relieves chronic pain by promoting the body to repair damaged or weakened joints, ligaments and tendons. The limited blood supply and poor healing properties of these tissues make Prolotherapy usually necessary after injury. PAIN REFERRED PATTERNS FROM CERVICAL FACET JOINTS In my practice, I often find a patient with chronic pain in the neck, shoulder and lower back from the old MVC (motor vehicle collision) or sports injury is relatively difficult to cure even though their pain level is low and not intense. Most patients have pain VAS (visual analogue scale) around 4 and it usually drop d

Trigger Point Injection & Prolotherapy for shoulder joint pain

LIGAMENT & TENDON INJURIES Ligament injuries are among the most common musculoskeletal injuries seen in clinical practice and ligaments are the most frequently injured structures in a joint. Ligaments play an important role in balancing joint mobility and joint stability. Disruption of joint ligaments severely impairs joint function. Ligament and tendons are made of collagen. When the ligaments and tendons are injured, the body produces collagen to heal them. The problem with ligaments and tendons is that the body offers them a poor blood supply and, because of it, a poor chance to completely heal. In non-injured ligaments or tendons, collagen fibers are flexible and have some elasticity. El

What's my body type?

There are three basic human body types: the endomorph, characterized by a preponderance of body fat; the mesomorph, marked by a well-developed musculature; and the ectomorph, distinguished by a lack of much fat or muscle tissue.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Diagnosis "FACE MAPPING"

Your face is a mirror of your health. Every organ, muscle, nerve and cell for that matter, must work together to assure homeostasis. If one area is not working properly it can affect other areas, which is essentially the foundation for TCM face mapping. What's your skin telling you? FOREHEAD : Bladder + Intestines - digestive problems - small intestine issues - liver issues - irregular sleep schedule - toxin build up - stress / worry - sweat IN BETWEEN EYEBROWS : Liver + Stomach - dehydration - too much alcohol - greasy foods UNDER EYES : Kidney + Liver + Intestines - lack of sleep - dehydration LEFT CHEEK : Liver - overeating - stress - stomach problems - poor air quali
