Patient discussion about works

Q. Is it really working? My boyfriend practice Chinese medicine and he always advocate Chinese medicine and brings many examples in which regular medicine failed for many years and one treatment of acupuncture cured the problem. I know it sounds convincing, but maybe these stories are misleading? I find it hard to believe in this meridian thing. It seems just like an old and out-of-date theory. What do you think?

A. As a successful practicing doctor of Chinese medicine I can tell you this: it doesn't matter what a patient believes if the diagnosis and treatment is correct. I treat patients every day who benefit from treatment as seen by objective sign and symptom changes. I am not providing new-age this or that, or ambient music, or BS talk. It's a standardized form of medicine with a complete theory at its foundation. Those who say otherwise are uneducated, inexperienced, and full of empty speculative opinions. This is real clinical experience talking, having worked and practiced in 5 clinics with vastly different patient demographics.

Q. I am Maya,I had stress both at work and in my personal life. I am Maya, a Civil Engineer working in a construction company. I had stress both at work and in my personal life. As a result, at the age of 30, I developed fibromyalgia. I could not meet my target of 8 hours sleep due to work stress and I had to forgo 2 hours of my sleep every day. Somehow, I would try to make it during weekends by sleeping 7-9 hours a night. After a year of this, I suddenly developed a pain in the shoulder and shooting pains in my arms, hands and fingers. My muscles became tight as if it was being tied to the rock and I felt weak. I cannot quit my job though, as I had to meet my commitments. Does work pressure and stress fuel up fibromyalgia?

A. Hi, I wish you the best in learning to deal with your condition. AS most of us that suffer know distrubed sleep is one of the symptoms of fibromyalgia. The pain awakes you or when you wake you feel as if you haven't slept. There for the chronic fatigue. But with learning to deal with your illness, working with your doctor to find out what treatment works best for you, you can and will learn to cope. You will realize you have "limits" that weren't there before and you will adjust to meet these. For someone that had suffered from the worse of my symptoms for the last 4 years I feel stress is a VERY large trigger for me. I can feel the difference in my body and the pain when I am under a lot of stress. I encourage you to find support, to try to outline ways to get things done that do not rush and stress you. Hot/warm baths, resting when you can and you need too. Realizing your new "limits" and not overdoing when ever possible. Good Luck!

Q. Anyone can give some information on how to start working on my son fitness? I am willing to send my son for a fashion show which is going to be held next year, but he is not fit enough to participate and there is a possibility that he might get rejected…..I want him to participate… …my colleague son is a fit guy and he doesn’t share his secret with others. Anyone can give some information on how to start working on his fitness….

A. See…More than you he needs to have interest in participation. Self-interest is all the more important. I strongly doubt whether he is interested to participate in the show or not? He should work hard to participate and win the show. It is not that easy like participating in the college competition. I shall suggest you aerobic, anaerobic exercise, muscular strengthen exercise, flexibility exercise etc. He must gather all info’s on these types if his body can take well it is good and if he tries whole heartedly, there is a possibility for him to succeed. He may have to dance also apart from ramp show. If you are very particular, keep a fitness expert dedicated to your son.
