Western Medicine explains that the development of itchy wheals and rashes (urticaria) are the result of an allergic reaction in which a chemical (histamine) is released from skin cells and cause fluid to leak into the skin tissue. Western Medicine understands that urticaria often results from an allergic reaction to a particular kind of food, drug, or food additive.

Treatments with Western Medicine will attempt to stop the symptoms of itching by applying calamine lotion or with antihistamine drugs. With severe cases, antibiotics or steroids are prescribed. Additionally, you will be advised to avoid certain foods to prevent future allergic reactions. The cause of urticaria in Western medicine is unknown.

Traditional Chinese Medicine understands the cause of allergies (especially from food). Allergic breakouts are the result of residual toxins in the small intestine which were not eliminated when you were born. Certain foods will excite the toxins in the small intestine and cause allergic reactions in the form of skin eruptions and a fever. Allergic skin reactions may also occur if you have very picky eating habits. When you train your body to eat only a certain variety of foods, the body will adjust when other foods are eaten resulting in allergic reactions. Germs act as scavengers and feed on waste materials and residual toxins within the body. Using antibiotics will kill the scavenger germs, but will not eliminate the underlying cause of the disease nor the toxins which feed the germs. Additionally, antibiotics will cause abnormal weight gain in children and cause damage to the heart and kidneys.

Traditional Chinese Medicine solves the problem by using herbs to increase the digestive function of the small intestine while eliminating poisons in the blood. When we change the environment in the body, we are able to eliminate the suitable habitat needed for germs to survive.

Kidney Stone Problems

Kidney Stone Problems

http://www.hantang.com/english/en_Articles/kidneystone.htm

Western Medicine understands that Kidney stones are crystals made up of mineral and organic substances. Unfortunately, Western Medicine has no identifiable cause of kidney stones in the vast majority of cases. There are however, some factors which Western Medicine believes may attribute to kidney stones. Some believe that stones result from inherited disorders or from excessive consumption of foods or drinks with oxalic acid such as spinach, leafy vegetables, rhubarb, and coffee. Metabolic disorders and diseases which result in too much calcium in the blood like hyperparathyroidism, multiple myeloma or hormonal disorders are also used to explain the cause of kidney stones. Western Medicine has to wait until the stones get big enough to cause severe pains or until blood is seen in the urine before kidney stones are detected. Diagnosis requires examining the urine to detect any red blood cells or the presence of crystals. Scans, X-rays, and dye injections are also used to visually identify the stones on film.

Treatment of kidney stones with Western Medicine involves the use of a special catheter type device to hook and drag out stones in the lower end of the urinary tract. Surgery or ultrasonic treatments are used to eliminate the larger stones. Since the small, grain like stones cannot be eliminated with Western Medicine, kidney stones often reoccur.

Traditional Chinese Medicine can detect and eliminate kidney stones when they are virtually undetectable by Western Medicine. The body can accurately detect if there are any kidney stones, even if they are as small as grains of sand. Kidney stones will result from the excessive consumption of calcium supplements, Vitamin C supplements, or from drinking unfiltered tap water. Individuals who have kidney related disorders in which the urine is not completely eliminated may have an increased risk of developing stones.

Treatment with Traditional Chinese Medicine uses acupuncture and herbs to eliminate kidney stones. Herbal medicines are used to allow more water to get to the kidneys, separate and break up existing and developing stones, and stop and prevent bleeding. Good preventative measures for kidney stones include avoiding calcium and Vitamin C supplements or pills, and drinking only good quality filtered water. Avoid drinking underground water and drink tea more often because it acts like baking soda. It neutralizes acidity in the body.

INTERNAL RECTAL PROBLEMS

http://www.hantang.com/english/en_Articles/internalrectalpro.htm


Western Medicine believes that internal hemorrhoids are caused by straining at bowel movement, or from conditions such as cirrhosis, or during pregnancy and immediately after childbirth due to increased pressure in the veins of the intestine.

Diagnosis with Western Medicine requires a rectal examination. Treatments are aimed at easing the symptoms by using stool softeners, or suppositories with corticosteroids and anesthetics to reduce swelling and pain. One method of treatment includes grabbing the hemorrhoid with forceps, and constricting a rubber band around it to make the hemorrhoid wither and drop off. Another method that Western Medicine uses involves injecting a chemical into the hemorrhoid which causes fibrous tissue to grow to prevent blood flow. Complete removal of the hemorrhoid is another treatment option with conventional surgery, laser surgery, or cryosurgery (freezing the hemorrhoid off).

Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that sedentary people are susceptible to developing hemorrhoids. Exercise helps maintain proper spleen function, and the spleen is the organ which controls the body’s moisture and muscles. Exercising helps the body’s moisture circulate, and sedentary individuals allow moisture to deposit in the abdomen. Accumulated moisture with rotten foods produces heat in the small intestine which increases gravity’s pressure to the large intestine. The end result is an ‘infection’ on the inside/outside of the colon.

Treatments with Traditional Chinese Medicine will eliminate the excess moisture in the small intestine. All natural herbs are used to eliminate rotten food deposits in the small intestine, eliminate ‘infections’, heal any wounds, and decrease the size of the hemorrhoids.

Gout (Painful Joint Disorders)


http://www.hantang.com/english/en_Articles/painjoin.htm

Western Medicine believes that gout is from deposits of uric acid in the joints. This statement only describes gout. It doesn’t explain the true cause of gout. Symptoms associated with gout are reddish skin in the joint area, swelling, and joints that are sensitive to touch. The most commonly attacked joint is that of the big toe. Other joints commonly affected include the knee, ankle, wrist, foot, and small joints of the hand. After the second attack of gout, more joints often become involved and the pain becomes constant.

Treatment of gout with Western Medicine includes using steroid and painkilling drugs to control the inflammations and pain. Drugs to block uric acid formation in the body are also used to control the symptoms.

Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that the cause of gout results from excessive consumption of sweet and greasy foods with alcohol. Alcohol alone is not the culprit. (Incidentally, lay people have referred to gout as a ‘disease of the affluent’ because only the wealthy could afford rich foods). The spleen controls the sweet taste and the spleen also secretes grease (fats) to maintain the body’s temperature. Excessive consumption of sweet and greasy foods will cause the sweet nutrients to become acid in the body. When the kidneys cannot eliminate all the excess acid in the body, the acids will follow the water system and deposit in the joints. Drinking alcohol will allow for more uric acid to circulate into the joints causing painful joint symptoms.

Traditional Chinese Medicine uses herbs to treat painful joint disorders by strengthening the spleen and kidneys. Additional herbs are used to ‘mix’ with the acid in the body. This is how pain and acid can be decreased. To prevent gout from reoccurring, reduce the amount of sweets, greasy foods, and alcohol you consume.

Breast Disorders

Breast Disorders

http://www.hantang.com/english/en_Articles/breastdisorder.htm


Western medicine believes that breast lumps/cancer are caused by hormonal influences, and that diet may play a part. A woman who discovers a lump in her breast is encouraged to undergo an X-ray of the breast (mammogram). Women who have had a family history of breast cancer and those over age 40 are encouraged to participate in these routine screenings. When there is a possibility that the lump may be a tumor, a biopsy is carried out in which all or part of the lump is removed with a hollow needle and examined under a microscope. If cancer is discovered, blood tests, x-rays, and scanning will be ordered to determine if the disease has spread to other areas of the body.

Treatments available are hormonal therapy, and / or surgery, often in combination with radiation and chemical toxic therapy (chemotherapy). Fluid may be withdrawn from the breast, x-rays or mammograms may be ordered, and lumps may be biopsied. When surgery is recommended, anesthesia precedes the operation. Surgical treatments range from a lumpectomy, in which only a breast lump is removed, to the removal of the entire breast (mastectomy). Unfortunately, these procedures often have adverse side effects worse than the original disease itself. Worse yet, after all of this, many patients find out later that these procedures have:

  1. 1.Failed to eliminate all the cancer cells in the body, and
  2. 2.Caused the cancer cells to mutate and spread to other areas, or return later.


Traditional Chinese Medicine believes that a female's period is derived from milk nutrients (not THE milk). This is proved by observation. Notice that when a baby breastfeeds, the mother does not have a period. This is because the baby is taking the milk and milk nutrients. The milk nutrient changes from white to red because of the intense heat from the small intestine. Traditional Chinese Medicine recognizes that the flow of milk nutrients to the ovary and uterus is essential to avoid disease. If the breast milk reverts, the milk nutrients will accumulate in another organ and may cause cancer. Some of the cancers include: Lupus, breast cancer, Liver cancer, Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Lung cancer. Traditional Chinese Medicine discourages using mammograms or biopsies as diagnostic methods of detecting cancer. Mammograms and biopsies damage blood vessels in the breast and cause leakage of blood into surrounding areas and can cause cysts to develop. When a possible cancerous tumor is biopsied, the cancer will spread. Controlling the emotions is imperative to help prevent further health problems.

Traditional Chinese Medicine offers treatments that are safe, effective, and have no adverse health side effects. Herbal medicine is used to change the environment in the body so the cancer cells cannot survive. Herbs in conjunction with acupuncture offers the best treatment by stimulating the body to eliminate the disease or cancer cells, regardless of where they are in the body.
