Points for dry skin (12/2021)

What would be some good points to treat dry skin? My main problem is dry heat, as I also have a very dry mouth… my skin gets a little bit better after using Sanogel / Enterosgel (I think this helps...

Getting worse after accupressure (12/2021)

I’ve been using the acupressure pen for a few months now, on the main points. Mainly to treat mouth dryness… usually I feel like the day when I do it my condition gets a little bit better… but 3 days...

Green tea and saliva (12/2021)

I don’t drink green tea too much, but when I do I noticed that usually shortly after I start to feel a little sick in my stomach… and my saliva production increases. Which is a really good thing, because I...

Moxibustion to dispel heat? (12/2021)

Because of the hot nature of moxibustion, it would make sense it’s beneficial against cold. But Can it be used to treat too much heat ?

Eczema on throat from seasonal allergies (12/2021)

Since I was a kid I had seasonal allergies in spring… and skin breakouts on hands… It’s gotten a lot better over the years, but the eczema kind of changes location… for the past 6 months or so, neck is...

Foods for inflammation (12/2021)

All the foods and herbs for helping with inflammation, like turmeric, cayenne, garlic, ginger are from the TCM perspective considered hot… and bad for my yin deficiency. Any other tips on how to fight inflammation ? (in my case cracking...

Building tolerance to herbs / supplements (12/2021)

I am taking milk thistle extract long term because of high(er) bilirubin… my skin and eyes are always slightly yellow. It was very effective at the beginning, but I’ve noticed it doesn’t do much anymore. My guess is that I’ve...

Skin rash (12/2021)

Bai He Gu Jin Wan and skin rash Questions Yes it is possible that Chinese herbs can have a negative impact if you’re taking a formula that has a conflicting action to what imbalance(s) you have. For example if you...

Bai He Gu Jin Wan and skin rash (12/2021)

I am currently taking a combination of herbs to treat stomach and spleen yin deficiency, mouth, nose and throat dryness. Would it be possible however, that the chinese herbs have a direkt negative impact in some way ? I have...

Ear acupuncture point for seasonal allergies (12/2021)

Hi, few years ago, one practitioner recommended one thing for allergies… Instead of orally ingesting the antihistamine tablet, he stuck small part of the tablet on my ear. Somewhere in this area: At that time, it helped a lot with...

Furry cracked tongue (12/2021)

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...

Points for dry skin (1/2020)

thank you! Will try those two couple of times per week.

Getting worse after accupressure (11/2019)

Yes, you’re 100% right. Yet I wasn’t able to fully uncover what is the real cause. I can’t remember when exactly the dry mouth started for me, I doubt it was from the birth… But looking at least 6-7 years...

Getting worse after accupressure (11/2019)

Yes, I should’ve made it more specific… I focus on GB3, LU5, LI4, ST37 and PC3. Few minutes on each point - some points are more sensitive than others. I try to do it usually once per week. I look...

Green tea and saliva (9/2019)

yes, it was in the morning on an empty stomach… that would make sense.

Moxibustion to dispel heat? (6/2019)

okey, understand. Thanks for the explanation. I was just wondering, as I am using it occasionally for ST 36… and I do have signs of yin deficiency and excess heat in the stomach. And was thinking if doing the moxibustion...

Furry cracked tongue (1/2019)

Looks like this… honestly, I was only able to find it on a local site… not sure if you can get it in the US. But it’s excellent. The coix I just buy whole and grind it up into a...

Furry cracked tongue (1/2019)

Hey Joe, I’m sorry for the late response… I did manage to improve it by a little bit… taking a greens supplement, Sanogel (a detoxifying gel) and coix. I still do have the furry coating, which always gets worse after...

Eczema on throat from seasonal allergies (4/2018)

that’s what I am thinking as well… that the eczema is just a break out of the underlying imbalances. In terms of allergy symptoms I mean the common ones… runny / stuffy nose, red burning eyes, coughing… as mentioned already....

Foods for inflammation (12/2017)

well, I am seeing quite a big and almost immediate impact (24-48 hrs) from adding in the herbs. Mostly negative though… my joints get better, but also my yin deficiency symptoms get a lot worse.

Building tolerance to herbs / supplements (7/2017)

ok, thank you. Makes sense. From what I’ve been diagnosed, I am treating stomach and spleen yin deficiency. From the past couple days, I’ve noticed again a few things relating this. I’ve started taking oyster mushroom supplement (used to take...

It is possible that the crack in the tongue disappears after yin deficiency treatment (6/2017)

mines just get slightly worse or better, but after more than 5 years never went away…

Skin rash (5/2017)

ok, I see. Thank you. really strange how I can see the ‘harming effects’ basically within 12-24 hrs. As my nose, throat and mouth gets even more dry and the fur on my tongue starts growing… Quite disappointing as well…

Skin rash (5/2017)

Hi Stephen, one more question regarding the cold/hot foods. I’ve been taking turmeric powder for quite some time now… and only recently did some more reading on it in terms of TCM. As I thought it’s considered hot, same as...

Skin rash (4/2017)

ok, thank you. I’ve already noticed that garlic and ginger make things worse (dryness and coating) so I’ve dropped that. Only ‘hot’ foods that I might be consuming is cayenne pepper and coffee. I will try to add the vegetables...

Skin rash (4/2017)

I’ve worked with a practitioner (from this forum actually) who confirmed my self-diagnosis, based on my tongue and symptoms to be stomach and spleen yin deficiency. So far I’ve been using moxibustion on ST36 for over 2 years, 2-3x a...

Furry cracked tongue (1/2017)

I thought I’ll just make an update to this old topic… and my issue. I’ve managed to reduce the dryness quite a bit (it’s still better on some days and worse on others, but in general) I’ve now observed a...

Chronic issues (11/2016)

ok, great. It might be the other account (found two with the exact same name), as this one has the location stated as Taiwan. Correct me if I am wrong though… I am on skype as michalramzes1. Yes, Friday at...

Chronic issues (11/2016)

Ok, I understand. Thank you for the explanation. I will gladly take the skype session, and answer the above questions. I feel that you’re very knowledgeable and willing to help - and the first to actually direct me to a...

Chronic issues (10/2016)

one more question sir. Based on the tongue, what makes you certain that it’s yin deficiency ? The cracks indeed point to it, as well as the dryness in mouth and throat, however as I’ve done some research, lack of...

Chronic issues (10/2016)

I completely agree. I already am going in circles, dealing with this issue for more than 4 years now. Western medicine, TCM… I went through it all. The thing is, my lifestyle (and diet) is pretty good… and I do...

Chronic issues (10/2016)

thank you! I really do appreciate all your advice. I will definitely look into getting my yin deficiency in check long-term. Also, I am trying to pinpoint the short-term cause, as the condition of my tongue (especially the coating) changes...

Chronic issues (10/2016)

thank you. This is what my tongue looks like currently. But as I said, both the coating / fur and the amount of saliva changes from day to day… Apart from this, I used to have digestive issues - mainly...

Chronic Issues (9/2016)

I do have basic knowledge. The reason I think it’s liver related is that when I take higher amounts of milk thistle, which directly supports the liver, I feel better and my tongue condition improves. I also do have chronically...

Chronic issues (9/2016)

Helllo, thank you for asking! I’ve managed to progress a tiny bit and find a few things that make the condition better, but not much. Lately, I suspect the liver / gallbladder to be the issue.

Furry cracked tongue (12/2015)

I think during using the ‘expel toxic heat’ formula, I had slightly less dry mouth… other than that, I didn’t see much difference (in the coating for example). However what I do long term already is taking bentonite clay powder…...

Furry cracked tongue (12/2015)

@Chad_Dupuis any ideas, based on the most recent infos ? I know it’s probably very hard to determine… Thank you.

Furry cracked tongue (11/2015)

Just going in with an update (and to partially answer some of your old quesitons) I’ve worked with another TCM practicioner in the mean time and he evaluated it as a stomach issue - excessive heat. And gave me a...

Ear acupuncture point for seasonal allergies (5/2015)

Oh, perfect. Thank you for the quick response! Just to make sure, the allergy point is actually on the inside part of the ear lobe, right ?

Furry cracked tongue (2/2015)

ok, thanks for help Chad. I don’t know how I am going to progress, but I’ll try my best. 3 years now I am noticing the tongues of every single person I come across. I have not seen a similar...

Furry cracked tongue (2/2015)

oh, thank you very much again Chad. Ye, the practitioner is native Chinese, so it might be the language barrier. I will try to tell him what you told me. I like that you give precise, educative advice, rather than...
