 医者父母心 :Treating each patient as same as treating our own children.

We are on facebook ! Please follow !!  —–Min

I decide to teach Chinese Medicine on the professional level after my daughter goes to college a few years ago. All my readings about Chinese Medicine are Classic Chinese in these years, and I have enjoying this journey very much. My patients are very much enjoying my talks about the philosophy of Chinese Medicine, Daoist and so on. Because of the language barrier ( Classic Chinese to English ) and my busy practice, I haven’t done anything on the facebook about public education. A lady just wrote me through facebook after she watched my video online and I am very glad there are people take care of themselves consciously. There are no magic needles !!! I am going to start write my thoughts about Chinese Medicine , clinical thoughts though facebook from now on. I’ll be very glad to hear some feedback.

Liver Qi stagnation with wrong direction:   3/30/2016

 Most text books talk about Liver Qi stagnation, and we see more cases with patients presents Liver Qi stagnation. I mentioned Liver Qi goes wrong direction in my last post, which is not seen in clinic often. Here is a case recently I have. I had cases for treating symptoms of hemorrhoids or recovery of a procedure of anal surgery in the past. Most cases are very successful. As speaking of meridians, there is no meridian pass anal area ! But there are meridians surround it. I had a patient who had 2 anal fissure surgeries, botox injections and still suffer tremendous in his daily life. That was my first case of treating anal fissure. We started treatment 2 weeks ago, yesterday was his 5th treatments. His energy was greatly increased, stool gotten much firmer , and 5 months bleeding stopped after the 4th treatment. We are very happy about these changes. The patients’ pulse was very typical wiry ( commonly known as Liver Qi stagnation). But his middle abdomen was tight at center and lower belly was very empty, and on low back of Gate of Life level wasn’t warm enough. Bingo! When patients’ symptom matches with my palpation, it gave me directly information of where I should start. Liver Qi naturally goes upwards, but in his case, Liver Qi goes wrong direction and stagnated at end of the digestive track ( excess symptom). But his lower back and lower abdomen shows greatly deficiency. ( Kidney energy wake, can’t help Liver Qi naturally going upward — this is the root which cause this patient’s symptom. Surgeries would not cure his problem, it only could temporarily stop some symptoms for his case ) I told him that actually this is the best time to treat his symptoms cause the nature’s energy greatly help. We could spent much longer time if our treatment happened in Fall or Winter. This is beauty of Chinese Medicine.

Spring : Liver Qi stagnation !!!   3/25/2016

A lady asked me about Liver Qi stagnation. She knows to massage LV3, which is between big and 2nd toe.
This is spring season and it is the best time to treat Liver Qi stagnation. What is Liver Qi ? Stagnation? wrong direction ? How do I know If I have Liver Qi stagnation? I have to answer these questions later.
Anyway, there are my thoughts about helping get rid of Liver Qi stagnation. #1,There is a video on my website for Qi Gong practice, #2,massage LV3, #3, massage PE 6 ( spot for motion sickness) to elbow, and TW 5 (other side of PE6) to elbow. and # 4, get up in the morning earlier and ware loose cloth, untie the hair, have a nice walk in the nature, do some stretches, a big exhale from mouth and nose after a deep inhale…( Yellow Emperor’s Classic of Internal Medicine : Su Wen, chapter 2: 春 三月,此谓发陈。天地俱生,万物以荣,夜卧早起,广步于庭,被发缓形,以使志生;生而勿杀,予而勿夺,赏而勿罚,此春气之应,养生之道也。逆之则伤肝,夏为寒变,奉长者少。Follow the nature is the best method to keep health from Chinese Medicine point of view. Spring is a season for growing, having offsprings, earths energy started to release… I often told my infertility patients who has weaker constitution to wait till spring to concieve, the chances are higher. The criminals were killed in fall (after noon time) only in China in the old time… Follow the nature!!!

<<黄帝内经>>:素问– 四气调神大论篇第二 (Yellow emperor’s internal medicine: su wen # 2)

是故圣人不治已病治未病, 不治已乱治未乱,此之谓也。夫病已成而后药之,乱已成而后治之,譬犹渴而穿井,斗而铸锥,不亦晚乎!

So the saints have not only to treat disease, but treatment of the disease before they occur. Do not wait until the chaos has happened before going to management, but management before it happens. If the disease has occurred, then go to treatment, just like you dig a well when you feel thirsty,  or you make weapons just before the war takes place. Is it not too late yet?
