Eczema affects more than 30% Canadian kids, the most common type of eczema is atopic eczema or atopic dermatitis. Patients usually are hypersensitive to allergens like dust, pollen, foods etc (Heat constitution), and have personal or family history of allergic manifestations (Weak constitution), for example, Asthma, Allergic rhinitis and Atopic dermatitis.

Where is it located and how does it look?

It's typically located on the face, neck, upper trunk, wrists, hands and on the bends of the elbows and knees.

It can appear in different forms ranging from red (Heat) & wet (Dampness), scaly or dry & thickened lesions (Skin lack of nourishment from body fluids and blood) at its different stages, i.e. acute, sub-acute or chronic stages.

However, itching (Wind by TCM) is what bothers all patients, especially when the itching and scratching cycle begins.

What conventional biomedicine usually offers?

Mostly, symptomatic treatment, topical steroids, e.g. corticosteroids even oral prednisone may be prescribed in severe cases.

What can acupuncture and Chinese herbs do about it?

TCM views eczema as those people with hypersensitive (Heat) and weak genetic constitution (Yin deficiency) get a overreaction (allergic inflammation, heat and fire by TCM) to airborne dust, pollen, fur etc. in windy seasons, leads a red (Heat), wet (Damp) and itchy (Wind) lesions at acute stage, and recurrent eczema, the heat may dries body fluids causes dry thick leather like skin at chronic stage.

So, principally, at acute stage, by TCM, you need dispelling wind, clearing heat and fire, drying dampness, Dispelling wind herbs like Sophora", "Saposhnikovia" are confirmed natural antihistamine, with experience dispel wind acupuncture points like "Eight Winds", "Pool at the Crook", can reduce or eliminate itchiness, clearing heat and fire herbs like Gentian root, Coptis etc are natural none-specific anti-inflammatives, can be partially replace steroids works on inflammation itself, and herbs and points to drying dampness can reduce secretion of lesions, reduce the infection chance, numerous modern clinical reports published have been demonstrated the effectiveness.

More importantly, at chronic stage, TCM addresses to nourish skin and strengthen skin immunity to promote earlier natural relief, that is more on the root, on the constitution treatment, the common used yin tonics herbs like rehmmaina (Di Huang), Angelic (Dang Gui) etc, confirmed act on hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis to produce more inner sourced steroids, which significantly reduces chronic inflammation and moistures skin and improves skin condition, eczema kids may get a safe, years much earlier natural relief with less or without external sourced steroids

All above will be in tincture or syrup, may combined with herbal lotion or cream made by Dr. Xiao.

Allergic Rhinitis

What is allergic rhinitis?

Allergic Rhinitis is one of the most common allergies people complain of. It is an allergic reaction in the nose to seasonal or year-round allergens like pollens in spring, grass in summer and ragweed in fall or dust and household mites. Seasonal rhinitis is called "hay fever" as well.

In addition to nasal symptoms as runny nose, sneezing, accompanied symptoms may include eye irritation, excessive tearing, and skin rash.

What can Western biomedicine offer?

Antihistamines, intranasal corticosteroid sprays and immunotherapy are among the options for successful symptom relief. However, for most patients, the trouble is how to protect themselves from the countless allergens around them.

How does Chinese medicine view the mechanism and what can be done about it?

The mechanism, symptoms and treatment for allergic rhinitis (though named differently) can traced back to two of the oldest Chinese Medical texts-Yellow Emperors Inner Classics and Discussion for Cold Invasion, 1700 to 2000 years ago.

The Chinese believe that when the body is in energetic harmony external pathogens, including allergens, cannot interfere. That is why some of us, during certain environmental changes, cannot adapt to these environmental changes, even though all of us are exposed to the same environment. Also it explains why some people, who were previously not allergic, suddenly develop allergies in certain environments. Acupuncture points like "Arm Three Miles", "Leg Three Miles", "Upper Star", "Gathered Bamboo", "Heavenly Connection" and "Welcome Fragrance" are used to strengthen body's resistance against allergens and open the nasal orifices. Some herbs that can reach this goal are Astragalus (Huang Qi), Cinnamon (Gui Zhi), Astractylodis (Bai Zhu), Pruni (Wu Mei), Schizandrae (Wu Wei Zi), Ledebouriellae (Fang Fangs), Xanthii (Cang Er Zi) and Magnolia (Xin Yi Hua).

Starts from talkativeness
Then nervous, irritable, agitate, angry
Impulsive, compulsive
Then manic, hysteric, yelling, shouting out
You may feel palpitation or even choking
Even damage people and things, the worst is commit suicide

That is anxiety, what you need then are puncturing third eye (yintang), Pc6 (interior gate) and Pc8 (mind palace), researches have shown that will produce endorphin, a natural inner tranquilizer, and applying mineral Chinese medicines like Meng Shi (Disorientation stone), Mangxiao, which contain lithium and magnesium, kind of western anti-mania medicine, those minerals work very effectively, have been used for thousands years.

Traditional Chinese Medicine aim at mental and physical balance inside body as its highest goal, hope you are not always in the peak, also not stay in the valley, we just wish you can enjoy the sea level--- being balanced with a natural way, without any side effects.

According to ancient TCM five element theory, there are inhibitive effects among different emotional movements like: Happiness inhibit sadness, sadness inhibit raging, raging inhibit over thinking, thinking inhibit fear, fear inhibit overjoyed. Besides acupuncture and herbs, Dr. Xiao also applies Chinese ancient emotional therapy to adjust your mood intentionally up to TCM five elements theory.

In five element theory, five emotional movements hosted in inner five organs as part of its function, not only related with inner balance we are working on, but also relate to out side environment through five sensational organs, skin etc, to colors, lights, noises, food, orientations, locations etc, to people, society even universe, there is a energy exchange between inside and out side body, in order to get inner balance to treat emotional disorder, art therapy, music therapy, diet therapy, psychologist, QI Gong, Yoga Tui Na etc. are recommended by Dr. Xiao.

Diabetes and the complications

Diabetes has been one of three top killers to the human being life all over the world, insulin and anti-diabetics as a symptomatic treatment, the result is far from satisfaction, since there is no specific treatment for its complications, the mortality remains high level, and every year, a lots of patients have to be amputated, it is severely threatening patient's health even life.

The ancient TCM documents about diabetes can dates back to 2000 years ago in yellow emperor's inner classic book, in which, first time described diabetes symptoms: frequent drinking, eating, urine, emaciation, and urine tasted sweet. Inspecting sugar by ants, using pig or cow's pancreas (contains natural insulin) with other herbs in formulas, TCM has a long history of treating diabetes.

TCM has a very unique view on diabetes and its complications, which leads to a totally different treatment and prognosis. As we know, Diabetes is most likely a based on genetic condition autoimmune disorder over stress, viruses, hormone imbalance etc, that causes a inflammation on pancreas and whole body blood vessels, the pancreas dysfunction result in less insulin even no insulin produced, and blood vessels inflammation which mostly happen on heart, brain, kidney, eyes, nerves, result in all complications: coronary atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, diabetic nephropathy, diabetic retinopathy, diabetic neuropathy, gangrene, diabetic osteoporosis etc. From TCM view, those autoimmune inflammations are kind of heat or fire in pancreas, happen to special individuals with body fluids deficiency constitution and initially pancreas lack of nourishment, the heat or fire can further burns body fluids cause blood stagnation and phlegm (Fat)stasis which lead all complications. Therefore, the key to treat diabetes and complications is not only focus on sugar level but on the whole body:

(1) Clear heat and fire from pancreas (it is in TCM spleen and stomach system), reduce autoimmune inflammation, produce more insulin, and from blood vessels to prevent complications happen in future, that is core and root treatment. Apply Gypsum (Shi Gao), Rhubarb (Da Huang), Jasmine (Zhi Zi)and Coptis root (Huang Lian)etc, puncture Pancreas point (EX-B3), Sp16, St36,44,45, Sp16;

(2) Nourish pancreas and body with body fluid to repairing and restore pancreas damaged b-cell, and protect other inner organs (Brain, Heart, and Kidney, nerves),by using America Ginseng (Xi Yang Shen), Rehmannia root (Di Huang), Solomon's seal rhizome (YU Zhu), Dendrobium (Shi Hu), wolf beery fruit (Gou Qi Zi) etc, puncture k1(grant stream), Sp6, Ub17, Pancreas point.

(3) Remove blood and phlegm stasis to improve blood circulation for damaged inner organs and nerves, to prevent complications and to those happened complications. Like Peach kernel (Tao Ren), Safflower flower (Hong Hua) etc, puncture P10, Ub17 plus Dr. Xiao's external use blood move cream, medicated herbal alcohol, natural antibiotics herbal cream if there is infection like gangrene.

All above combine with using animal pancreas powder, diet and sports, effective rate up to revealed clinic studies done in China varies from 65%-86%, without resistance and dependence observed, and TCM treatment can also makes body more sensitive to insulin and other anti-diabetic medicine, may reduces dosage of those medicines.

The effective rate for the complications (up to revealed documents):

Diabetic nephropathy 58%- 75%
Diabetic osteoporosis 76%- 88%
Diabetic retinopathy 45%-65%
Diabetic neuropathy 65%-91%
Diabetic foot 56%-85% much less amputation needed.
And important symptoms like fatigue, depression, insomnia, impotence etc improved significantly, the quality of diabetic patients life improved.

Cancer prevention and treatment

Cancer has been the top killer to human life all over the world, Do Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can defeat cancer?

Drawing of cancer have been found on turtle shells and oracle bones dating from the eleventh century B.C. Medical texts dating from 200 B.C. have detailed descriptions of cancer and their causes. Cancer is well known and well documented in Chinese medical literature, and been treated as masses and hardness, enormous researches from both laboratory and clinic in China, Japan and U.S have demonstrated its effectiveness, as matter of fact, many anticancer medicine in chemotherapy were botanic sourced, such like Vincristine, Camptothecine, Paclitaxel, Crotaline, Indirubin etc.

From TCM view, cancer is a abnormally fast grow stasis of blood and phlegm to the certain weak constitution individuals, the deficient vital qi (immune system) fails to clean up abnormal cells since heat toxin (viruses), long time stress, smoking, alcohol or junk food etc damaged immunity, this standpoint have been demonstrated by modern oncology researches.

So, TCM prevention and treatment on cancer is a comprehensive and synergistic system includes: antineoplastic therapy, immune strengthens and supportive therapy, symptomatic treatment, food therapy etc, it is well compatible and complementary to chemo- radiation, and surgery therapy in clinic practice in China, as a low toxin, most green cancer therapy, cancer patient's effective rate, survival rate are much higher and mortality is much lower, quality of life is higher, there are significant difference, The benefits may from following aspects:

a. Antineoplastic effect: directly inhibits tumor growth and proliferation, or Activates

Reticuloendothelial system and increase phagocytosis by lymphocytes, induce tumor cell differentiation, improve cell wither, and synergistic to chemo and radi-therapy by

increasing body sensitiveness, such like E Zhu (zedoaria), Yu Zhu (Solomon's seal rhizome), Yi Yi Ren (seeds of job's tear), Xia Ku Cao (prunella), and Bai Hua She She Cao (heydytis) etc, work as a green chemotherapy.

b. Supportive therapy: cancer treatment is kind of competition between cancer cell and human body under the harsh treatments, the prognosis is not only depend on the chemo,radi-therapy and surgery, which is very strong, mostly too strong than patients could bear, more importantly, many herbs can offsets side effects like bone marrow suppress and improves immunity, patients general condition like appetite energy and sleep are much better, adoption is much higher, more patients able to complete whole chemo-radiation therapy.

To strengthen patient, such like turtle shell elevates white blood cell, Ginseng, Huang Jing (Polygonati) and Huang Qi (milk-vetch root) elevate platelets, human placenta improves hemoglobin and red blood cell, those are key points lead the favorable results, very common used in cancer treatment in hospital of China.

c. Cancer symptomatic treatment like cancer pain, cough, diarrhea, ascites and fever etc, herbs and acupuncture can improve the quality of life by treating symptoms,

d. Metastasis prevention and treatment: apply immune booster herbs and puncture, moxa points like Rn4, 6 (energy sea, vital gate) will strengthen immunity and enable body clear abnormal cell daily, plus low toxin green chemo-like herbal treatment in intermittent or remission period, or before and after surgery, are extremely important to metastasis treatment and prevention, also indicate for people in high risk.

e. Based on TCM 's view of cancer pathogenesis, the mood balance and diet guidance are part of the cancer treatment integration, up to individual constitution and five elements theory, for instance, the food's flavors and colors guidance are important.

In order to gain an ultimate effectiveness for cancer patients, if need, Dr. Xiao does suggest combine the chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgery with Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and all treatments above to most of cancer case.

Menopause and health

First of all, it is important to understand that menopause is not a disease but a natural phenomenon, a process of aging, you must not be panic about it, commonly it lasts 1- 3years, some may stay more than 20 years, the severity of symptoms much depend on individual's genetic and constitution condition.

Secondly, it is annoying, it causes both physical and mental changes, like hot flash, night sweating, dry skin and vagina, lower libido and painful or difficulty intercourse, and mentally stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia even mania. It may seriously disturb a person's health and relationships in this period and future time.

The third, TCM has long time believing that menopause is just essentially a natural process of aging, hormone replace therapy (HRT) will disturb this process with potential risks, recent studies have demonstrated that HRT may increase risk of breast cancer, endometrial cancer and uterine myomas, trigger heart attack and stroke etc, Doctors all over the world are looking for a new alternative treatment.

In China, TCM has been effectively using for treatment on menopause for thousand years, only 5% now even less menopause cases need hormone, symptoms like hot flash, night sweating can be reduce in a few weeks or less, sleep, mood, dryness and libido may improved in a month, importantly, no side effects are observed.

Further researches have revealed mechanism of TCM on menopause treatment: Herbs tonify kidney yin like turtle shell, rehmannia root etc mainly act on pituitary axis to ovaries to improve inner hormone production, while acupuncture on points Zi Gong (uterine), Rn4,6 (Sea of energy, primary vitality gate) etc may improve capillary blood circulation of ovary, make it more sensitive to hormone, prevent or delay the ovary function premature declination, those therapy usually are anti-aging treatment or treatment for womanhood, TCM has been using those treatment for thousands years, it is effective and much safer.

Dr. Xiao highly recommends patients with menopause choice TCM therapy.

How does Chinese medicine view the process of pregnancy and what can be done to improve chance of conception?

In preparation for a new garden, fertile soil, selection of good seeds, proper temperature and moisture are all equally important factors for the vitality of that garden. We use this holistic view when addressing fertility with acupuncture. By strengthening the organs and meridians that are believed to both optimize sperm and egg quality, and to create a superior uterine environment, the fertility rates can be improved. Researchers from Weill Cornell Medical center reviewed studies and concluded that acupuncture helps to: increase blood flow to the uterus, normalize hormone and endocrine systems that regulate ovulation, etc. A landmark study published in the medical journal Fertility & Sterility found that acupuncture dramatically improves the chances of becoming pregnant when used in conjunction with other assisted reproductive techniques.
