A major drawback to healthcare in Taiwan: Doctors rarely discuss possible drug interactions, side effects, or medication usage with patients.
A Canadian expat’s experience of using acupuncture and Chinese medicine in Taiwan to help with pain/inflammation from Ankylosing Spondylitis.
My ear issues were a warning sign of things to come. My journey with Ankylosing Spondylitis started six months after this post.
Traditional Chinese Medicine: Dr. Tzu demonstrated a scraping method called Gua Sha. Its principles are similar to those of cupping and has similar effects on the body.
My experience with Traditional Chinese Medicine in Taiwan. Cupping is used to bring blood flow to the muscles and skin, which effectively drain excess fluid and toxins from deep connective tissues.
