What to do when tonics don't work
Created 09-05-2016 by "anon188538"
I have chronic fatigue of deficent type, with yin fire flaring when I do too much exertion; I also have poor appetite. I tried Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan and Ginseng capsules, yet they don’t give any effect. In case of Bu Zhong Yi Qi Wan they actually worsen my condition. I feel emptiness and pain in my chest. What to do, is moxa the only alternative to combat fatigue and weakness?

My experience as an Acupuncturist on a Cruise Ships
Created 12-02-2007 by "catraveler"
Don't be fooled by the lure of fun and excitement of working and living on a cruise ship. Steiners is a spa company that has monopolized spas on cruise ships and they are aggressively hiring Acupuncturist to complement there business. On the surface it may seem glamorous and adventurous visiting international ports on cruise ships with potential of making $1000/wk but the reality is not so exciting at all. The image about the job will...

Hello, I’m 40 yrs old male in search of some desperate help with condition that has lasted over five years. I’ve had over four different Skype consultations with TCM practitioners who took me into different directions to no avail and some made things much worse.

Hi, I have today treated a gentleman, who was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. A pain in the right buttock travelling down the right leg predominantly, but also mildly on the left, the pain travels to the foot and the foot has a burning sensation. Pain is relieved by taking the pressure off, i.e if he doesn't sit or stand the pain lessens. Very strangely this pain ONLY occurs every other day and he can time...

Emotional energy transference
Created 09-27-2008 by "slfroedge"
Sometimes when I am giving an acupressure treatment, I feel the person's energy move. Then, I experience emotions that are not my own. For example, extreme grief in a person with a headache. When I feel the transfer of the emotion and energy, the person's headache goes away. This often leaves me feeling weak for several minutes or hours. What is going on?

Death by Acupuncture
Created 08-05-2010 by "Elena_Marcus"
In 2004 I was hit in the solar plexus numerous times with a sharp object (while I was passed out). Trying to figure out what this demented person intended to do, I found information on deadly strikes and Marcial Arts. It found that if you have a burning sensation after you get hit in the solar plexus, you were hit in the deadly point, and you die in seven years. Indeed I recall feeling a...

Also, until recently, he had a desk job for years and...

Bipolar + Herbal Pattern Differentiation
Created 12-12-2010 by "MKAM"
Hello - this is my first post to yinyanghouse. I was wondering if someone could help distinguish between these two patterns for a patient of mine. She is already on prescription medication for bipolar disorder. She is interested in a herbal formula to possibly help minimize the amount of prescription drugs she is on. I have narrowed her down to two patterns. Either Phlegm Fire Harrassing the Heart or Blood Amasssment (Stasis). R Patient is...

Acupuncture to quit smoking?

For quite smoking should I use electro acupuncture every time? What points should I use for electro acupuncture. Like connecting Lung 1 and Lung 2. Any other suggestions would be helpful.

Furry cracked tongue
Created 02-18-2015 by "anon133258"
Hey guys, so I have this issue that I am struggling for years now. I went through countless doctors, treatments, tests, acupuncturists… without success. Instead of explaining, I think it’ll be much easier to show you some pictures. Three different problems here: the huge central crack, side cracks (the severity changes) and the white coating / hair. I also have really really dry mouth and I am bloated almost all the time.

Scoliosis acupuncture treatment
Created 01-22-2009 by "calidor"
Hi, I tried to find more about the phenomenon of cifoscoliosis, and if there could be found a way to prevent or treat it completely. I guess it's a problem in stagnation of kidney qi and in the same time the unability of liver to receive from kidneys the produced energy and spreading it, and this may be a reason for being created a lot of tensions in the spinal muscles and stagnation in bladder...
