Chinese Medicine - Day 11

The Chinese herbs along with the accupuncture seem to be working, but here's what I found. It isn't immediate and if I eat cheese, red meat and green chiles all day long, nothing will prevent me from having heartburn that night at least a little bit, but the Chinese herbs and accupuncture certainly do help.  Today my heartburn hasn't been very bad(last night wasn't terrible), but I bet it would be totally gone had I stuck to the diet and continued taking the herbs. Only reason I didn't is that a close family member is in the hospital and so I've been at the hospital enough to drive me crazy.

Chinese medicine day 1

Ok.. so  it's the first day after my acupuncture treatment. I've been given 3 different bottles of herbs to take 3 times a day and a dietary plan to follow. No red meat and nothing cold to drink plus limiting my coffee intake. We'll see how this goes. That alone may make some difference. I noticed yesterday that the needles don't hurt unless you try to move, so it's better to just relax. Today I still have some heartburn at times, but not too much. Last night it wasn't too bad. Tonight I will really know.

Chinese Medicine / Acupuncture

Today I went to see an acupuncturist for the first time. I've had recurring heartburn for the past 7 yrs and have been unhappy with the results of my MD. She gave me an acid reducing medicine and I feel there is something else that should be more effective against the root cause.

I was treated with acupuncture today and it was my first treatment. The acupuncturist seemed to know what she was doing and gave me some Chinese herbs also. She also told me I need to reduce the red meat, fried foods and eliminate cheese from my diet. That's all for today. We'll see what happens and if this works or not. I'll be documenting the results of my acupuncture treatment here.

Let me know if anybody has a personal experience they would like to share related to Chinese medicine or acupuncture. No sales posts are allowed here. I will delete them without thinking twice. ONLY  genuine personal experiences are allowed here.

What's the coolest gadget?

I am on the hunt for the absolute coolest gadgets and gizmos because I'm starting a web based business and it's my business to sell the absolute coolest stuff to sell from my site. So far, I've got iPods and noise-reducing earbuds, but I want weird unknown stuff too. What do you think is the coolest gadget on the planet? That's what I want to know.
