Can anyone explain this phenomenon> It is quite painless and intermittent and occurs most nights (has for about 20 years). The best description I can give is that it is a silent explosion of energy at the back or crown...

Urgent Help: No blood circulation in the Legs (12/2016)

Sorry t hear you have so much trouble Hasnain. I am not a fully qualified herbalist so you should take this on consideration only. I just want to say that I had a client once who had so little circulation...

Hypothyroid with liver and kidney yin xu signs (12/2016)

If there were some Kidney Yang signs would you necessarily think that toning Kidney Yin was counter indicated?

What to do when tonics don't work (9/2016)

So between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. when Spleen/Stomach are naturally most energized you are, nevertheless, still very fatigued. I suppose that could be because the centre is too weak to respond as it should to the influx of Qi,...

What to do when tonics don't work (9/2016)

Dear Xiaomei, According to the Chinese Clock 11-00-01.00 p.m. is Gall Bladder Time, when GB receives most and heart receives least Qi: 07.00 - 09.00 p.m. is CX (Pericardium) time when CX receives most and stomach receives least. 09.00-11.00 p.m....

What to do when tonics don't work (9/2016)

Run Chang Wan has only a little Da Huang, it also contains moisturising, blood nourishing and Qi regulating herbs and the idea is to take it together with a Qi or a Qi and Blood tonic so I really think...

What to do when tonics don't work (9/2016)

So it seems we have Qi deficiency with spontaneous perspiration, which, naturally, is worse on exertion including eating, mild blood and maybe some yin deficiency, heat in the centre with Stomach Qi counter-flow on occasion and dryness in the intestines...

What to do when tonics don't work (9/2016)

Chronic fatigue and spontaneous sweating indicate Lung / Wei Qi deficiency and burning feet on exertion suggests also some Lung (or Kidney) Yin deficiency so, if that were all, I would consider either Yi Ping Feng San for the Lung...

What to do when tonics don't work (9/2016)

Oh, right, no other symptoms. So you’d naturally think of Qi and Blood deficiency and if it were me I’d probably just use Ba Zhen Wan for a while and see how I respond. But maybe it’s a bit more...

What to do when tonics don't work (9/2016)

" Chronic fatigue", isn’t a TCM diagnosis is it? Can you be more specific about the signs and symptoms? Some of what you’ve said suggests kidney yang deficiency, some spleen deficiency, some lung yin deficiency, some blood stagnation and some...

Dear Stephen, Thank you for your very helpful response. I will look into the formula you suggest. Thank you also for the caution but I assure you I do not intend to rush into anything. I will look for further...

Herbal Treatment for Chong Mai Deficiency Cold or Disharmony (8/2016)

Dear Chad, Thanks for your response. Here is further information. I hope it is helpful but am I’m afraid it is rather long. As some sage once said, “the words of a confused man (or woman) are many”. I admit...

Progressing atrophy and scarringg of finger (and toe) nails (7/2016)

Dear Chad, I looked through, “research articles”, and many links from it and found nothing that looked or sounded like my problem (I’m glad to say). Then I called up, “evaluation of nail abnormalities” and found this. Local Nail Abnormalities...

Explosions of energy in the head on falling asleep (7/2016)

Dear Chad, Thank you for your kind response to my question Yes, it could, I suppose, be Kundalini rising. I agree that is worth considering and I’m not sure I’d discount it on the grounds of the phenomenon occurring only...

Progressing atrophy and scarringg of finger (and toe) nails (7/2016)

Dear Chad, Thank you for your helpful advice. I will certainly follow up your references. I think you may have, “hit the nail on the head”, (sorry for the awful pun, couldn’t resist) with your comment about recovery of the...

Progressing atrophy and scarringg of finger (and toe) nails (7/2016)

Dear Stephen, Thank you so much that is very helpful. I have other spleen deficiency signs but never heard before that lateral scarring of the nails indicates spleen. I had heard that vertical lines (not scars) meant lung deficiency but...
