Chinese medicine?

May 18, 2019 8:53 AM

Has anyone had any beneficial results from either Chinese or natural medicine?
My main conditions are fibromyalgia (almost 15 years), osteoarthritis, bipolar and other mental health diagnosis.
I would love to hear your experiences. Thank you.

I have had acupuncture, natural heat treatments and some hoke lotion that was worthless. Only only good therapy that was as good as gold. Massage. Great at giving massage.

Yes, Chinese massage is amazing, however leaves me unable to move for around 3 days after.
It's certainly not the answer to getting back to work!
Thank you for your input.

Acupuncture leaves me drowsy but great for my arm and head pain

Interesting.
I've tried it for my chronic sinuses but never felt any benefit (maybe I didn't give it enough goes).
I'm willing to try anything for this pain, so I'm off to a Chinese herbalist / healer.
I just need to improve my diet a little more to give myself the best chance of benefiting.
Thank you for your input.
