PYROLURIA: PYROLE DISORDER (PD)

Pyrole Disorder (PD) is a disease leading to the inability to regulate the stress response->severestress & anxiety states. Pyroluria is accumulation of pyrole molecules, a by-product of red blood cells synthesis, in the urine as a marker of the disease process. The disease can be genetic or epigenic (acquired genetic problem). Oxidative stress & inflammatory states trigger or exacerbate PD. Pyrole accumulation leads to a double B6/ pyridoxine & zinc deficiency-> both depression & anxiety

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I wrote this long article because many women were approaching me for help related to complaints of fatigue. Yet, they did not present with the Chinese medicine diagnosis I expected. Some were self-treating with substances [including Chinese herbals] that were dis-harmonious with their constitution, making accurate diagnosis and treatment difficult. While women are mostly impacted by CFS, 20% of sufferers are men who remain undiagnosed [Clayton, 2015, p.

Stress Management

People of all ages and walks of life experience acute & chronic stress that result in anxiety & depression, and somatic complaints such as pain.Stress management is core to healing!

I recently interned at a hospital-based pain & stress clinic where I received the same acupuncture treatments given to patients. What I realized from this experience was that while we have an accurate perspective on our acute stressors, we do not have insight into our chronic stress. Stress is not just psycho-emotional in nature but encompasses stressors that are structural, immunological, hormonal, metabolic, nutritional, toxicological /infectious and genetic in nature.

ADHD

Not all children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) will demonstrate obvious symptoms during a clinic visit. Therefore, certain academic, social, and emotional problems should prompt the evaluation for the three types of ADHD- inattentive, hyperactive-impulsivity, and combined types (Taylor, 2013). All Diagnostic & Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders Fifth Edition diagnostic criteria are outlined in a checklist published by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (2014).

Discovering Qi Gong

I can not claim to practice Qi Gong diligently, let alone skillfully at this time. But I have become a proponent of after practicing a few exercises for the purpose of writing an article on Chinese medicine for cancer support. Qi Gong has been studied extensively for its benefits not only in palliative care, but also for the actual treatment and remission of cancer. The different forms of Qi Gong have far-reaching benefit that include ameliorating symptoms, improving mood appetite & sleep, increasing self-healing ability, and even inhibiting cancer growth (Chen & Yueng, 2002).
