The following tips are helpful for everyone, especially those with
digestive issues. I pulled these eleven from a list of fifty-four that were part of a talk I gave on
digestive health a few months back.
They are culled from years of personal and clinical experience, as well as from the annals of both Eastern and Western medicine. Many of these tips have
conflicting research and opinions. The suggestions I offer, therefore, are ones that I have watched work.
These are guidelines; try them and notice what works for you. More...
Common hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) is a condition that is increasingly common in the U.S. and other places that are strongly influenced by modern American culture. Every experienced practitioner of Chinese medicine in America has treated many patients with this
condition, although this problem is not yet all that common in most parts of the world, nor

Q:Iíve heard about chronic fatigue syndrome and I suspect that Iím suffering from it. What is
CFS and how can it be diagnosed? Also, what foods would you recommend for someone who suffers from CFS,
or simply wants to improve their energy and feel more vital?
A: The medical
community has classified CFS as a "syndrome" because it
is a group of symptoms that are present at the same time
with no discernible underlying medical condition. These
symptoms include severe exhaustion, recurrent fatigue
that gets worse with physical exertion, muscle aches,
headaches, sore throat, and recurrent colds that linger
for long periods of time. Currently, there are no
definite tests for diagnosis. Your healthcare provider
may make a diagnosis based on the symptoms alone.
