Let me Guide You to Better Health

During my various medical practices, I’ve tirelessly advised my patients that if they want to be healthy they must have healthy life habits.  However, I confess I had rarely followed my own advice; I exercised very little, ate fatty food, devoured candies, and stayed up all night to watch movies. In addition, I was ignorant of the heavy toll caused by the daily stress from work.  When I reached my fifties, I had an episode of fainting.  At the emergency department, I was astonished at the poor state of my health.  After an extensive self examination, I was worse off than many of the 80 year old elderly women and men who came to seek my care. I had frequent colds, fevers, and attacks of weakness.  Walking briskly for twenty minutes would bring on short of breath.  A flight of stairs would leave me covered in sweat.  My shoulders, neck, hips all ached terribly.  My illness came one after another.  Eventually I suffered from Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, acid reflux, anxiety, hypertension and abnormally low blood counts.  Then I realized my health had declined so much only because for years I had ignored taking care of myself. I regretted how I treated myself.  I fervently wished time was reverse and correct my poor life habits in the past. 

But I told myself it wasn’t too late.  From then on, I set up strict rules about my life and held myself accountable for them.  It took time, but gradually my health improved.  I used the natural methods and successfully treated my health conditions.  Now I am 63 and the state of my health has never been better and I feel energetic and full of life.  The doctor said my laboratory values looked like that of a 20 year old! 

The reason I am starting a blog now is because my experience of the terror and uncertainty at my nightmarish decline in health and the final recovery has filled me with empathy and understanding for people who are undergoing the same thing.  Everyday, when I faced patients who are tormented by their illness, I thought that while a minority, who like me, had developed diseases because they continued the bad habits of life that gradually eroded their health despite knowing what’s right, for the majority of patients their diseases were borne of ignorance of how their lifestyle was contributing to their suffering.  On many occasions, my discovered the roots of their problems and solved them in just a few sentences.

Normally, people tend to be afraid of unfamiliar things.  One day, when they are confronted with the unfamiliar and are threatened with life and death, they feel powerless and fearful.  So they blindly obey what others determine about their life and fate. Whatever pills offered is swallowed without protest, whatever surgery offered is accepted without question.

Actually, many times people over-estimated the immediate threat of the disease, and under-estimated the self-healing abilities of the human body.  If our bodies are the soil, and our organs –brain, heart, lung, kidney, liver, etc – are the flowers growing out of the soil, then disease is the parasites that live in the soil and feed upon the flowers.  The general approach of western medicine is akin to pouring chemical pesticides into the soil to kill off the parasites.  But at the same time the pesticides could hurt the flowers and degrade the quality of the soil.  Also, if used too many times, the pesticides could breed resistance in the parasites.  The approach of self-healing and natural medicine is different; they use various methods to improve soil’s natural resistance and ensure long-lasting and through protection.

In many religions there is the inspirational idea that extraordinary strength added to people weakened by disasters can give them courage and will power and let them shoulder the heavy burdens to walk through their valley of misery.  The reason I am starting this blog is to help those who lack the knowledge, and teach them how to prevent illness and continue healthy living.  It is also to help those who is already sick to use their own strength to battle their illness.  I aim to use the most simple and clear language to illuminate the complex Chinese and Western medical concepts and turn them into something familiar and easy to understand. 

Come on, friends, come on this journey with me!  Let us explore a life full vigor and joy!

    How wonderful this is to hear your words of wisdom and share your experience too. Thank you for your blog and I am going to continue to read. I always have felt that the body heals and that makes doctors mad. My chlorestral was high about 220 and they start people on medication if it stays that way or higher. So I started my program which is berries, banana and organic yogurt in the morning and high fiber cereal and bread during the day. I have done this now for three years and now my cholestral is 173. I have a friend who says it is impossible. Nothing worked. I think you have to keep trying.

    It is good, always, to be reminded of the human body’s ability to mend itself. However, we know it won’t do it alone. We have to become participants by following basic health precepts. Much of what we need for optimal health can be discovered by simple awareness. Through your blog, and by sharing of your own personal health issues, you remind us to open our eyes and become more aware of how we treat ourselves. Adversity can be a great gift when it leads to changing our ways for the better. But hopefully we can skip some of the adversity by treating our body with the respect and care it deserves. I look forward to your insights and recommendations, and to following you on the journey forward!

  4. My cousin recommended this blog and she was totally right keep up the fantastic work!

    I was a wreck. I seemed to be sleeping all the time, but never getting any rest. I went to bed early to make up for the three to four hours of tossing and turning the night before. It was horrible! I had no time to do anything, cooking, painting and writing, the things I loved to do, even exercise. I was tired. My white blood counts were chronically low. Because I didn’t feel like cooking, I opened cans and ate frozen food.
    And then my platelets started falling too. I used to love to dance but I just couldn’t do it anymore. Finally, my doctor sent me to a hematologist. She said I needed a bone marrow and that scared me. I thought, “I’ve got to do something about this. Maybe Dr. Wang has a solution.” She’d treated me for other things, backache etc. So why not?
    She said she too had poor habits as she mentioned above. I was shocked. I couldn’t believe it, but then I didn’t feel so bad. Anyone can get themselves like this. It doesn’t take much. For me it was an accident that hurt my shoulder which in turn gave me crippling headaches. I had to lie down to stop them. Then I got in poor sleeping habits, heading for bed around 7 pm. My husband was shocked. That was more of the sleeping habit of a baby! But the cycle repeated itself over and over again. I was into this for good I thought. I attributed part of it to age (I am sixty) and whatever else I didn’t know. But the hematologist gave me many blood tests before the bone marrow. I asked her if I could have another blood test in three weeks after my treatments with Dr. Wang. She said OK and I just got the results. I have had 3.0 WBC
    for ten years, and now it is 5. something. It is normal — it’s like a miracle.
    My internist didn’t seem to advise anything. When I told her about my sleep problem she gave me a sleeping pill. That’s it. Now I am on a schedule and I have my life back!
    I can do things in the evening and I discovered I don’t need as much sleep as I thought. What I needed was good sleep. I think my body was constantly trying to repair itself at night, but couldn’t. It was in an agitated state. The herbs and accupuncture make me relax. My blood pressure even went down. Amazing the lowest it has ever been. 119 over 65. And that wasn’t even being treated.
    The body sometimes gets out of balance and needs help. A true healer will get it back in balance. I believe the body can heal itself. But sometimes we need help.

  6. Hey, possibly this post is not on topic but in any event, I have been browsing about your site and it looks really neat. It is easy to see I am creating a new blog and I am struggling to make it look great, and supply excellent subject matter. I have learned a lot here and I look forward to additional updates and will be returning.

    I’m not even sure how I found your blog page, but I’m glad I did !! I find myself nodding in agreement with things written in several of the topics and wondering how I got myself into the state I am in now. . . and more importantly, how to get myself out. I am a recent graduate of massage therapy school and am a little familiar with accupressure, though not really accupuncture (not being a fan of needles). How would you recommend going about finding a good and reputable healer, such as yourself? I know my weight issues are creating depression issues and then back again, so it’s a vicious circle and down-spiral to a Very dark place. I just want to get out and be my old self again, but have no support system and I don’t seem to be doing a very good job on my own. Any suggestions you could offer would be appreciated!! Thank you

    I finally got some time to read your blog and I think it is wonderful. I hope you continue to post more stories! You had been telling me I needed to go without a bra, that it was too tight and constraining my lungs – hard to take deep breaths (I have asthma). This was a wild idea to me, but after trying it for a couple of days, my shoulders and back feel much more relaxed, and there is much more room to take a breath. Your blog on shapewear was great.

    I like how you use metaphors – these pictures really help me understand your perspective better. Thank you for all your work, and I’ll see you on Monday!
