My problem down south has been going on for the longest time ever since E was completely weaned off the breasts. I have seen gynaes several times, taken a few rounds of antibiotics, consumed yoghurt on a consistent basis – all to no avail. It probably weakened my immune system too as I was very susceptible to flu and sore throat. I knew something was wrong with my body.
My youngest sister who has been trying to conceive for over two years fell pregnant recently. It’s a huge relief because she has been yearning for a child for as long as I could remember. She has attempted various methods – from taking fertility pills, timing sex and staying put in a position to changing her diet, seeking alternative treatments such as acupuncture and homeopathy, and praying very hard. When she finally gave up, the baby came along 🙂 Her secret? She attributed the blessing to the works of a tabib Cina in Melaka. She conceived a month after taking the prescribed herb medications.
Curious, I thought maybe it’s time for me to look into TCM. We went there last weekend and after taking his medications for almost three days, I can safely say that the vaginal discharge has subsided a lot. And they’re no longer yellowish.
I have always been intrigued with pulse reading…it’s like the fortune teller for the health industry. Just by pressing a finger against one’s wrist and listening intently to the pulse, the entire history of one’s health is unveiled there and there. According to about.com:
In total, then, there are six positions: three on the right wrist and three on the left wrist. Each of these six positions is used to gather information about one of the six yin (and corresponding yang) organ systems. There are also qualities of the pulse as a whole that are used to diagnose more general conditions within the bodymind.
At just one sitting, the tabib guessed everything about my health correctly…that I:
1. Have heavy vaginal discharge, not white but yellow.
2. Will have difficulty conceiving now and won’t be successful because my eggs are not holding on to sperms properly. My body is way ‘too cold’.
3. Have problem sleeping and that I sleep on one side only.
4. Feel a numbing sensation on my right hand most of the time.
5. Have a gastric problem.
6. Feel tired all the time.
Except #2 which I wasn’t aware of, everything else he mentioned was accurate. I was also given a list of foods that I should avoid at the moment, among all: Salted vegetables, 100 Plus, pineapple, grass jelly, ice drinks, sourish drinks, tea and more.
The damage? Around RM350 for a three-month supply of two medications (in capsules form). If it really helps and is a one-off affair, I don’t mind paying the extra bucks.
