Poor Digestion Case

A 46-year-old woman came to for her appointment. She looked very stressful. Her major complaint is digestion problems, which started at the age of around 20. The symptoms include stomach pain, bloating, vomiting, dizziness, and depression. I noticed that both of her arms were swollen and inflamed. She told me that she had just been released from a hospital, and the swelling of her arms was caused by IV treatment. The nurse couldn’t find her vine, so she put needles all over her arms. She said: “Gina, the doctor suspected that I forced myself to vomit; that is the reason they kept me in the hospital. I didn’t force myself to vomit.” I told her: “ I believe you because I know why you vomit.”

In this case, the cause of vomiting is due to insufficient energy in the stomach. In the theory of Chinese medicine, there is a complete, very detailed explanation of energy. The study of energy in Western medicine is vacant. In a normal condition, the stomach energy moves downward to push the processed food to the next step of metabolism. If the stomach energy is weak, the food stays in the stomach for a longer time. The patient can feel stomach bloating, lack of appetite, and even vomiting. In many cases, unbalanced emotions can affect the liver and lead to liver energy (gas) invading the stomach, which can also cause vomiting.

She received one treatment, which included massage therapy to release the emotional stress and Moxibustion therapy to strengthen her energy and digestive system. Taking one bottle of Chinese herbal remedy to improve her metabolism. A week later, her father came and told me: “It’s hard to believe, for her vomiting problem, we had searched for the cure for more than 20 years. She came here and only received one session of the treatment and took one bottle of herbal remedy; her vomiting stopped.” The correct diagnosis and treatment are the key to cure.
