My story 6

In autumn of 2011, I went back to China again to buy some herbs I need, a lot.

With the experience of last time, I thought I should be more cautious. Firstly, my body should be given more time to get used to. Secondly, I prefer not to have that much pain. So I took it slowly, add the amount of main herb day by day. The priority is still to help my body.

I have been taking this herbs mixture medicine for two months.During these two months’ time, I have experienced a lot how my body reacted to this herb medicine. Of all, it was the cold feeling in my body that was more dominant. Sometime, staying at home with 23 degrees, I still felt so cold and I had to wear two lays of wool sweater with a hat on my head.

This phenomenon confused me a lot because the main idea of this mixture of herbs is supposed to warm up body. Why did I feel so cold?

After reading documents from different doctors’ experiences of treating patients, eventually, I found out it was because this herbs mixture medicine warmed up my body so that my body’s sense is back. In another word to say, before my body was too cold to have some sense. My body was numb and senseless. With the medicine warming up, body‘s sense began to be back, which is why I feel so cold.

This whole body coldness lasted for two days and then I began to spit out a lot of liquid. The liquid was just coming, soon full of my mouth. I had to spit it out. I touched this liquid from my mouth; It did not feel warm at all.

This liquid coming to my mouth had been going on around one week. At the same time, pain here or pain there in my body happened occasionally. Sometimes, it was sharp pain; sometimes, it was slow pain. The good part was that it was just short while; it did not last long.

Once I was in bathroom, my right part of face began to twitch. Looking at myself in the mirror, I saw my right part of face twisted with this twitching. I was not nervous at all because I know it would not last long. I even thought it was a little bit fun to see that.

My story 4

According to this saying in TCM, when we are too weak, it has no point to attack the lump anymore based on that our body has not energy to handle.

Is it the medicine to handle the lump or is it our body to handle the lump with medicine, which confused me much.

After some time of thinking, reading and thinking reading again, eventually, I worked out.

This saying means that when we are weak, our body is still able to manage to function but to leave some less fatal functioning work behind, like cleaning up waste. Lump is one of the problems caused by the waste that blocks certain meridian.
When I took herb medicine, my body energy was dragged into the work to handle the lump. In that case, other body function cannot be done properly, like breathing, handling some simple house work. That was why I felt so short of air and so tired to do something simple when taking the herb medicine to attack the lump in my right breast.

This is what I found out. To work out whether it is really like that or not, I did try again the herb medicine and the same result showed up.

By that time, I knew that I was too weak to deal with the lump directly. What I should do is to try to raise my body energy through herbs since there are so many herbs that can help you be more strong.

With this thought,The next thing for me to do is helping my body be strong enough. It seems that it is the only way for me to do at that moment.
