Please pray for us, I  will take a transfer with a small airplane from Senegal to Guinea Bissau, because there is no direct flight from US to Guinea Bissau.
Joanna, a 46 year-old female, has been feeling numbness into her feet for the past month.  She felt uncomfortable to drive and walk because of decreased sensation at both feet. Because people with chronic polyneuropathy often lose their ability to sense temperature and pain, they can burn themselves and develop open sores as the result of injury or prolonged pressure.
Joints are particularly vulnerable to stress in people with polyneuropathy because they are often insensitive to pain. One of the most serious polyneuropathies is Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare disease that strikes suddenly when the body’s immune system attacks nerves in the body.
Surgical intervention if needed can provide immediate relief when symptoms are caused by compression or entrapment injuries. Peripheral Nerve- numbness, tingling, ants climbing, glove and stock distribution, cold extremities, foot drop, decreased knee and ankle reflex, no sweating,  sometimes, feels weakness and muscle atrophy. Lower Extremity: St 31 Bi Guan, St 34 Liang Qiu, GB 31 Feng Shi,  St 36 Zu San Li, St 41 Jie Xi, and extra points Ba Feng. Many patients may have depression and low energy, therefore, the points on the Brain are very important, I usually choose: Du 21Bai Hui, Si Sheng Chong, GB 8 Shuai Gu, Tai Yang,  Du 23 Shang Xing, Ying Tang, etc. For Coldness at feet and hands, I also choose Ren 4 Guan Yuan, Ren 6 Qi Hai, UB 20 Pi Shu, UB 23 Shen Shu. For GI symptom, such as: bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea and constipation, St 36 Zu San Li, St 37 Shang Ju Xu,  St 39 Xia Ju Xu, Ren 12 Zhong Wan,  PC 6 Nei Guan, UB 21 Wei Shu and UB 20 Pi Shu.
Joanna underwent my treatment 3 x per week for 4 weeks, she first felt less burning pain, and a steadier gait, but she still felt numbness and tingling sensation in both feet. You should always wear white socks, if you have any wound in your feet, you will find it right away by checking your socks.
Clean and check your feet with mirror every day, you will find the wound and take care of it right away. Keep balance training, you will keep your balance much better with the progress of peripheral Polyneuropathy. Using plum – blossom needle to tap the feet around the plantar feet may also receive good result. As many of you may know, I went to West Africa for medical mission trip with my son, Jimmy Xu, a medical student, Elizabeth Cooper, my office administrator, Nataliya Kushta, my physical therapy assistant and 8 other non-medical personnel from a local church in Bridgeport between May 18 and June 2, 2013. With the help of the local churches in US and Africa,  we went to two countries,  Senegal and  Guinea Bissau, traveled around 800 miles, stayed in three cities, Dakar, Kedougou in Senegal and Bissau in Guinea Bissau. For 400 miles on one trip between the two countries, we went through 19 check points like this.
We bought hams, chicken, cheese from Costco, freeze them, and brought to Africa with this blue ice box.
We have seen total 2,420 patients,  we treated 450 patients in one day once, which exhausted our energy. We set up a tent in the leprosy village, another small tent was put inside the tent, the temperature was around 120F, therefore, we were unable to check the body temperature of patients.
My heart was broken, we gave  the children our lunch, they grabbed the food with their unwashed hand.
This child was crying when he ate, he may not eat this kind of food for one to two months as the local people told me. We went to a remote village to deliver medical care and food.  We took 4 wheel drive truck to cross  the jungle and river bank to the village.
We went to the village and gave out food to the local people.   We brought to each family of  a bag of rice 50 kg and vegetable oil for total  about 310 families in different villages. The village chief is the richest man in the village and he has 4 wives, I took pictures of him and his hut. Sandy, a 45 year-old woman, complained of bilateral hand and wrist pain on-and-off for many years. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic, long-term disease that causes pain, stiffness, swelling and limited motion and function of many joints. Rheumatoid arthritis affects the wrist and the small joints of the hand, including the knuckles and the middle joints of the fingers. Diagnosis of RA depends on the symptoms and results of a physical exam, such as warmth, swelling and pain in the joints. Common DMARDs include methotrexate (brand names include Rheumatrex® and Folex®), leflunomide (Arava), hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) and sulfasalazine (Azulfidine). Patients with more serious disease may need medications called biologic response modifiers or “biologic agents.” They can target the parts of the immune system and the signals that lead to inflammation and joint and tissue damage. It is important to be physically active most of the time, but to sometimes scale back activities when the disease flares.
When you feel better, do low-impact aerobic exercises, such as walking, and exercises to boost muscle strength.
Mary has perimenopausal syndrome (PMS), which usually happens to women at age of around 45 years-old, however, each individual might have different experiences as some athletes start perimenopausal syndrome as early as 30 years-old with other women as late as age 60. Menopause is caused by the cessation of ovarian function.  The ovary is a pair of reproductive glands in women. The ovaries are the main source of female hormones, which control the development of female body characteristics such as the breasts, body shape, and body hair. Estrogen replacement therapy was a widely recommended treatment for menopausal symptoms as well as in the prevention of osteoporosis and heart disease. Systemic estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) affects your entire body and reverses the effect of low estrogen.
Help prevent postmenopausal osteoporosis by slowing bone loss and promoting some increase in bone density. Estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) may increase the risk of health problems in a small number of women. In rare cases, an increased growth of preexisting uterine fibroids or a worsening of endometriosis. Some of these side effects, such as headaches, nausea, fluid retention, weight gain, and breast tenderness, may go away after a few weeks of use. Supplements, herbs and botanicals like black cohosh, evening primrose oil, and flaxseed are thought to relieve menopausal symptoms. Acupuncture treatment has long been used for perimenopausal symptoms (PMS), most Traditional Chinese Medicine physicians believe kidney deficiency is the main pathological cause for PMS. Main points: Ren 4 Guan Yuan, Ren 3  Zhong Ji, Ren 19 Zi Gong,  Sp 6 San Ying Jiao, Ht 7 Shen Men, Du 20 Bai Hui,  Liv 3 Tai Cong, Pc 6 Nei Guan, Ren 17 Tan Zhong, GB 29 Ju Liao, and GB28 Wei Dao. Research evidence showed that  PMS symptom was improved with decreased FSH, LF and increased E2 and endorphins level.
Acupuncture and many Chinese herb formulas have been used to effectively adjust the hormone level, the most important herbs are  Bai Sa sheng, Mai Men Dong, Dan Gui, Di Huang, Gou Ji, Chuan Lian Zi, Ye  Jiao Teng, etc.  The formula prescribed depends on the diagnostic type of Chinese Medicine,  each individual is different from other, therefore, no one formula can be used for all the  patients without modification. If it is possible, you should drink Chinese herb tea, which should be prescribed by physician who had really training.
Chose some scalp points, such as Du 20 Bai Hui, GB 20 Feng Chi, Du 16 Feng Fu, GB 8 Shuai Gu, even Extra-point Tai Yang, will be very helpful.

Try to use Chinese herbs to help, such as Gou Ji, Chuan Lian Zi, Yu Zhu, Shi Fu, let patient use them as tea. Stress reduction treatment is very important, the points in the liver meridian should be chosen, such as Liv 3 Tai Chong, Kid 3 Tai Xi, etc. Like most people in Western countries, Michelle, a 50 year old woman, loved to sun bathe for many years.  She gradually discovered that her skin appeared to have an increasing amount of dark spots as she began to age. In order to understand the formation of hyperpigmentation and wrinkles, we have to understand the skin structure and related modern research. For centuries the monastery provided free Chinese Medicine treatments, including NKCL, to the public. Perhaps equal to or better than studying any subject directly, in this case Oriental Medicine, whether through classes, books, clinical observation or under a master, is the indirect more subtle approach.
Through infusing yourself with nature, like steeping tea in a pot, both internal and external chi can mix and combine merging into one. Let's also not forget how important one's surroundings are as well, particularly the consideration of the 3 Perfections of Feng Shui (harmonious people, perfect place, right timing), especially for self cultivation and health concerns. His articles have appeared in various professional journals of acupuncture-Oriental Medicine and Natural Healing Arts magazines. Intimate European oasis in the heart of Jacksonville offering full hair care, massage therapy, pedicures, manicures and more in a relaxing spa environment. Though less common, diabetes can also cause mononeuropathy, often characterized by weakness of the eye or of the thigh muscles. If the nerves serving the organs are involved, diarrhea or constipation may result, as well as loss of bowel or bladder control. Such surgery would be to repair a herniated disc relieving pressure on the nerve.  Other examples or surgery would be if a tumor was impinging a nerve or if the nerve entrapment is a result or constricting ligaments or tendons. However, acupuncture is a very good tool to alleviate the symptom of tingling, numbness, loss of sensation in the hands and feet and burning, pins and needles sensation.
After two weeks of treatment she started to feel warmth in both feet, she could sleep better.
As long as the patients complained of fever, we would give out antibiotics to treat their infections. After we threw all the bones of chicken, beef, and pork into a garbage can,  the children picked up the bones and started to eat. One day I saw a chief of the leprosy village, he claimed he had hypertension, I agreed to give him medicine “Benicar” 20mg once a day for 30 days.
I went to three schools established by Pastor Otavia, who provided free education and free lunch to more than 400 students. Your name will also be plagued on the wall at the entrance of the school  if your donation is more than $500 and if you are not against us to do so.  However, any amount is welcome. Recently for a month now, she felt both hands had constant pain and were tender, warm and swollen.  She woke up with morning stiffness that may last for hours and felt firm bumps of tissue under her both forearm accompanied with fatigue, mild fever and gradually weight loss.
While RA can affect any joint, the small joints in the hands and feet tend to be involved most often. This means that certain cells of the immune system attack healthy tissues — the joints in RA, cause the inflammation in the synovium, the tissue that lines the joint. Periods of increased disease activity, called flares, alternate with periods of relative remission — when the swelling and pain fade or disappear. Thus, patients with a diagnosis of RA should begin their treatment with disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs — referred to as DMARDs. Older DMARDs include gold, given as a pill — auranofin (Ridaura) — or more often as an injection into a muscle (such as Myochrysine). It has no side effects and can be combined with traditional western medicine to relieve your symptoms. Feet: St 45 Li Dui, St 44 Neiting, Sp 1 Yin Bai, Sp 2 Da Du Sp3 Tai Bai, Sp 4 Gong SunUB 66 Zu Tong Gu, UB 65 Zhi Yin, UB 65 Shu Gu.
I first try to decrease her pain at the joints and body with the points of group 1 and 2 , then, I used the group 3 and 4 points to help her to improve her fatigue and depression, after about 2 month’s treatment, Sandy was put on maintenance treatment program once a week for 4 weeks, and she  felt much improved.
Multiple Therapies are the best way to treat RA with combination of medicine, PT and Acupuncture.
She was offered to take low dose birth control pills, or maybe estrogen replacement.  She was afraid of the side effects of birth control pills and estrogen replacement, therefore, she comes to me for alternative treatment. The menopausal transition starts with varying menstrual cycle length and ends with the final menstrual period. If the ring falls out at any time during the 3-month treatment period, you may rinse it with lukewarm water and reinsert it.
It is used to treat women’s hormone-related symptoms, including premenstrual syndrome (PMS), menstrual cramps, and menopausal symptoms. Ear Needles: Main Points, kidney, endocrine, sub-cortex, plus sheng meng, jiao gan, , liver, heart, spleen, etc. However, Mary’s symptom also indicated liver yin deficiency, Liv 3 Tai Cong, UB 18 Gan Shu, Kid 3 Tai Xi were added to the treatment plan. She also complained of deeper wrinkles appearing on her upper lip, in the corner of her eyes, side of her mouth and nasolabial folds deepening with constant dryness of the skin that lacked shine.
Wrinkles are accelerated by habitual facial expressions, aging, sun damage, smoking, poor hydration, and various other factors. This was perhaps the first healing art of China predating acupuncture by more than 3,000 years. The monks supported themselves by cultivating and gathering herbs which they then sold to both the healthy and sick in the village market at modest prices. The temple was forced to close down in 1948 and was completely destroyed during the Communist cultural revolution in 1965. The Shen practices not only provide keys to self empowerment and balancing of all the various organs and meridians, but also offers a means of direct cognition of universal knowledge. Following the time-tested concepts of giving cooling herbs for a hot condition and acupuncturing the healthy areas of the body rather than the painful and diseased ones, so it may be with perceiving knowledge using the polarity principle of opposites or yin-yang. After all, how and where did many of the great master-doctors of antiquity acquire their high level of skills? One understanding is that all knowledge already exists in one form or another as subtle energy as do all cures for disease. Many of the ancient physicians found meditation, chi kung and Tai Chi Chuan most helpful in their alchemical transformation and cultivation of spiritual consciousness, enlivening their knowledge and skill in the healing arts. We may face a lot of challenges, such as contaminated food and water, gangsters on the road, high temperatures,  very small room in the base for us to stay, etc. Her husband found her right foot bleeding, however, Joanna reports never feeling that she stepped on anything. Peripheral neuropathy can be inherited caused by genetic code mutations, with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease being the most common inherited peripheral neuropathy.  Other identified causes include traumatic injuries, infections, alcohol abuse, external pressure on nerves, nutritional deficiency, metabolic problems or toxin exposure. Early symptoms include weakness, tingling, and loss of sensation in the legs that eventually spreads to the arms.
After finishing 4 weeks of treatment she walked much better, and she drove smooth and steady.
For some reasons,  the fee was negotiable, because the governments  often do not pay their employees, therefore, the officers have to make money from us.

All my team members paid our  own travel expenses including air fare, local transportation, room and food.
He returned on the second day with an empty package and told me that he took all the medicine. Vincent Camuto, one of my patients, has already donated $10,000 to us, which is a great help. She visited her PCP and was given naproxen to reduce her inflammation and pain, however, she felt no improvement. Stiffness for a long time in the morning is a clue that you may have RA, since few other arthritic diseases behave this way. FDA-approved drugs of this type include abatacept (Orencia), adalimumab (Humira), anakinra (Kineret), certolizumab (Cimzia), etanercept (Enbrel), golimumab (Simponi) infliximab (Remicade), rituximab (Rituxan) and tocilizumab (Actemra). Proper care requires the expertise of a team of providers, including rheumatologists, primary care physicians, physiatrist and physical and occupational therapists. A physical or occupational therapist can help you find which types of activities are best for you, and at what level or pace you should do them. Expertise is vital to make an early diagnosis of RA and to rule out diseases that mimic RA, thus avoiding unneeded tests and treatments. Studies show that people who receive early treatment for RA feel better sooner and more often, and are more likely to lead an active life. You should encourage your patient perform exercise, which will keep your patients’ mobility of hands and other joints.
She underwent acupuncture treatment 3 x per week for 4 weeks plus Chinese herb pills 2x per day, she felt much improved with her night sweats and hot flush, she also reported better sleep and less mood swing, she was continued to have acupuncture maintenance  treatment once a week for 6 weeks, then she continued her Chinese herbs for rest of the treatment. She also had difficulty falling asleep, remaining asleep without interruption, experienced fatigue, constipation, on and off hot flashes, irregular menstruation, lived a stressful life, and experienced cold limbs during the winter and in air condition rooms. Taoism as an organized religion founded by Chang Tao-ling did not begin until the Han Dynasty during the second century A.D. You need only allow the knowledge to flow freely to you so you can receive and transmit it to others, for example, patients and students.
The 3 Treasures, which include Jing-Essence, Chi-Energy, Shen-Heart Mind Spirit, are one of the cornerstones of Taoist Style Chinese Medicine and are cultivated through the above internal chi practices, important for both patients and practitioners alike.
Jeff is a respected senior student of several well-known masters and doctors, including Taoist Grand Master Share K.
I hope the school will be self-sufficient in someday.   Your purchasing the tickets will greatly help these poor Africa children as well as me! Joanna went to her physician who examined her and she was found to have decreased sensation at both hands and feet with glove and stock distribution.  Both her feet showed a little black color with lost hair and dry skin. Blood pressure problems, heart rhythm problems, and breathing difficulty may occur in critical cases. She then continued her maintenance program once a week for 8 weeks, she is much more comfortable to walk and drive now.
We brought about $50,000 worth of medicine donated from Americares,  an organization  based  in Stamford, CT, Henry Schein, a medical supply company in NY, and 6 organizations. I was amazed that his blood pressure was not dropped to zero.  Afterwards, I realized I was so naive, I was told that he might hide his medicine and asked for more.
She was referred to a rheumatologist, who ordered x-ray images and rheumatoid factor test.  Both were positive for Rheumatoid Arthritis, therefore, the diagnosis was confirmed. As the disease progresses, symptoms often spread to the knees, ankles, elbows, hips and shoulders.
This can make cartilage (the tissue that cushions between joints) and bone erode, or wear away. These three drugs and gold are rarely prescribed for RA these days because other drugs work better or have fewer side effects. Most often, patients take these drugs with methotrexate, as the mix of medicines is more helpful. For most people with RA, early treatment can control joint pain and swelling, and lessen joint damage. A physiatrist who is an expert in RA also can design a customized treatment plan that is best suited for you.
They also are less likely to have the type of joint damage that leads to joint replacement. It is not officially a medical term, but is sometimes used to explain certain aspects of the menopause transition in lay terms. Therefore, a woman can develop osteoporosis (thinning of bone) later in life when her ovaries do not produce adequate estrogen.
She would like to try acupuncture and Chinese herbs to reduce her facial dark spots, wrinkles, and improve the quality of her facial skin. Until recently this art was a closely guarded secret, rarely taught outside of Taoist monasteries or family style traditions. Lew is perhaps the first to openly teach many of the Taoist Healing Arts to the American public since the late 1960s, including the secrets of chi kung and NKCL. However, despite the severity of the disease, recovery rates are good when patients receive treatment early. Her sensation in both feet was much better, she no longer had a burning sensation, but she still felt mild numbness. We had no difficulty getting the medicine through the Senegal Customs,  however, Delta Airline fined us $500 for overweight. The patient was given methotrexate and felt better for morning stiffness and swelling, however, she had many side effects, such as, nausea, vomiting, hair loss, etc.
DMARDs have greatly improved the symptoms, function and quality of life for nearly all patients with RA. These checkups let your doctor track the course of your disease and check for any side effects of your medications.
Therefore, the rheumatologist, working with the primary care physician and other health care providers, should supervise the treatment of the patient with RA. I performed Nerve Conduction Velocity and Electromyography Tests, which conformed Joanna had peripheral neuropathy. She was told to strictly control her blood sugar and gradually her numbness and tingling sensation disappeared. You likely also will need to repeat blood tests and X-rays or ultrasounds from time to time. He was one of China’s most prominent healers and Chi Kung-Nei Chia masters, also believed by some to be one of the founders of Tai Chi Chuan.
As one of China’s most famous masters, his teachings were embodied by the Yellow Dragon Monastery founded more than 700 years ago. His practices, which became known as the Taoist Elixir Style, comprise many different healing arts including NKCL.
