1. G-I disorder has great results. I ever treat a patient who has hepatitis c caused cirrhosis, in order to wait the liver donator, I help him to pass the most difficult period for 3 years and finally, he got the liver from donator.

2. Using Chinese herbs has better result to treat viral hepatitis then interferon which only has 50% effect but the side effect like lack energy, nausea makes patient very hesitated to continue. I always like to see the liver profile from the blood test to monitor patient's progress.

3. Chronic diarrhea and or switch to constipation are often respond well from acupuncture with Chinese herbs.

She had abdominal pain for years not get relieve even through many times surgery. The patient has a good looking and delicated face but the scar tissue on her abdominal area from previous surgery just makes me feel sad for her. She was in the beginning refer to see a M.D. acupuncturist. After reviewing her case, the MD told the patient not his ability could do. The patient then referred by a radiologist -a friend of me, to know the result, please visit the testimonial of my website.

Traditional Chinese Medicine for Digestive Complaints
Gas, bloating and constipation can be a pain in the you know what. Literally!! Here are some ways that you can help yourself and feel better.

Thousands of South Florida residents, and approximately 61 million Americans, experience digestive problems on an ongoing basis. This is largely due to the harmful repercussions of the standard American diet on our population coupled with the high level of stress that the average American experiences. Digestive problems range from minor annoyances, such as gas and bloating, to life-threatening illnesses, such as ulcerative colitis, unremitting diarrhea, and various cancers that target digestive organs.

Whatever the case, it is always worth being proactive about our digestive health. My goal for writing this article on acupuncture and natural therapies is to get you going in the right direction, not only with your digestion but also with your health in general.

Let's take a look at a few common disorders and what we can for them.

1. Constipation: The standard American diet can easily lead us to chronic constipation. This diet is low in fiber and antioxidants and high in difficult to digest additives and refined ingredients. Many, many people are constipated and they don't even know it. They may have regular bowel movements, but they are still not flushing their systems totally, which creates intestinal toxicity. Intestinal cleansing is often a top priority in healing numerous chronic health problems. There are several natural herbal remedies and nutritional supplements that can relieve constipation and heal the underlying imbalances.

o Chinese herbal formulas such as ma zi ren and Wu Ren wan or Five Seeds are gentle laxatives that are not habit forming. o Aloe Vera juice reduces inflammation and promotes peristalsis (smooth muscle contraction in the bowel). o Psyllium husk is a high fiber product that alleviates constipation. o Flax meal and seed are excellent high fiber sources for constipation. o Therapeutic grade essential oil of Peppermint helps relieve constipation

2. Diarrhea: Chronic diarrhea can be dangerous for your health. It is still one of the leading causes of death in the world. Diarrhea is related to spleen weakness or intestinal inflammation. It is always a top treatment priority to heal this condition. Stress and anxiety can trigger regular bouts of diarrhea, as can processed and refined foods.

3. Irritable bowel Syndrome: IBS is a common problem that affects millions. Doctors will often diagnose IBS when the patient's symptoms don't seem to match up with anything else, so they call it irritable bowel. This disorder is characterized by bowels fluctuating from constipation to diarrhea with intermittent abdominal pain or distention. People with IBS tend to be sensitive to a variety of foods including high fiber foods, refined sugar, wheat, and gluten products. In our office in fort Lauderdale we have found symptoms can continue indefinitely and can be resistant to conventional treatments. I have treated several patients with IBS, usually with very positive results. Acupuncture theory asserts that IBS typically involves a disharmony between the liver and the spleen. The liver becomes hyperactive due to stress, anger, and frustration, which causes it to weaken the spleen, causing loose bowels and fatigue.

Treatment involves relaxing the liver and strengthening the spleen.
Many digestive disorders respond very well to consistent acupuncture, essential oil and herbal treatment. Making dietary changes that restore and detoxify the gut also enhances treatment progress. Digestion is one of the main reference points for gauging one's overall health. If there are weaknesses or imbalances here, it is likely that one's overall health is compromised.
