Patient discussion about translucent

Q. Is there something out there to clear blockish in the heart? I often face blockish in my heart which I feel very pain and difficult to breathe. Is there something out there to clear blockish in the heart?

A. I know we walk around this world feeling good and healthy but really don't know the truth of what is going on in our body. I want to know is there something out there like a pill or whatever to clear up your clogged arteries if that was the problem, I don't know why but I have this thing in my head that I have some blockage I did get checked and everything is good. But you know how some people think of something too much and untimately end up in worry. No! There are prescription blood thinners, etc, that are for people with much clogged arteries, who are at very high risk of stroke. But they are dangerous - they can cause severe bruising, uncontrolled bleeding, and uncontrolled unnoticed internal bleeding from the slightest trauma! The risk is simply not worth it. Of course, watch your cholesterol intake.

Q. Can someone clear in simple term to make me understand—please? A difficult and new confusion struck me….. Can someone clear in simple term to make me understand—please?

A. To be simple let me say that TCM is similar to modern type of system as they try to link the diagnosis with the biochemical nature of the body. TCM diagnoses and try to treat bipolar and other depression related disorder from physiochemical understanding., whereas 5-element therapy does not treat body as it is concerned with spirit treatment and is completely different subject to understand and yes it has been reported to heal depression in many.

Q. How long will our leaders continue sanction this clearly immoral lifestyle? I did research on hetro-sexual lifestyle and found many interesting facts. I do not approve that and we all know the HERETO-sexual lifestyle leads to alcoholism, drug addiction, STDs including AIDS, fatherless children, poverty and spousal abuse. How long will our leaders continue to sanction this clearly immoral lifestyle? I am getting sick on this and I think our future generations would suffer a lot. I have been doing this for quite a while but I think it is time for me to garner some feedback on the issue. Well if you people in this forum have some social responsibilities please share your views.

A. wow-wow-i did not no people like this existed,this is deep?...there has to be a problem here with the way you were brought up,as a child....i would really suggest that you get some help...bad things and good things happen to all of us....hetero-people...what happens if you take away the heterosexuals?.....human beings are not perfect,we all make in the united state-we have problems,but if we work together(help each other)things will start to change---a hand full of bad people,can make us all look bad.the news companys make it seem worst than it really one time in our history(usa)one set of people kept another set of people in slavery(the southern state)for 300yrs....when the northern states got rid of people were pushed a side,we were hanged on trees...we were shot...our churches were burned down...our woman were raped...we couldnt vote...and we couldnt get jobs...and also our leaders were killed..for wanting to change things----people who look d
