From Cancer to Remission

From Cancer to RemissionBy Dr. Mao Shing Ni and Frances Lam, L.Ac.

This is a story of a woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of35 and whose health was drastically declining when she came to the Tao of Wellness at the recommendation of a friend. Diana arrived at our health center in June 2018 with debilitating arthritis, neuropathy, hypothyroidism, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, a uterine fibroma and bipolar disorder.

Diana’s story is one of empowerment, perseverance and gratitude. Because of the successes she experienced while working with us, she wanted to share her story in the hope that she could educate, inspire, and encourage us that it is possible to change the state of our health, and that some of that power lies within our own hands.

Ask Dr. MaoQ: Can ginseng effectively prevent the common cold and flu?

A: Although most people in the West think of ginseng as a stimulant, in Eastern Europe ginseng is widely believed to improve overall immunity to illness. A recent study looked at the potential immune-stimulating effects of Panax ginseng when taken by mouth. Four weeks into the study, all participants received influenza vaccine. The results showed a significant decline in the frequency of colds and flus in the group that took ginseng.

While more research is needed, this study suggests that ginseng may be able to do what echinacea, zinc lozenges, and vitamin C cannot: prevent colds.

There are actually three different herbs commonly called ginseng: Asian or Korean ginseng (Panax ginseng), American ginseng (Panax quinquefolius), and Siberian "ginseng" (Eleutherococcus senticosus).
