Tai Chi has been a long time on-and-off source of exercise for me over the last twenty years. As I approached my early seventies and faced my osteoporosis issues along with several fractures resulting from trip-and-fall events, I started taking it more seriously. Among several medically integrative strategies to deal with my condition, I sought out Dr. Che’s help with acupuncture for my general well being and energy balancing. She also added TaiChi to my healing home practice regimen. More... Read more »
I was infected with COVID-19 and diagnosed in mid-March, 2020. After two weeks of hard struggle [in quarantine], I finally passed the dangerous period. However, both lungs had been infected and it felt rather hard to recover. Every day I was very weak, often with chest tightness and difficult breathing; my back was especially painful. In the meantime, my friend recommended me to use Dr. Che’s Eight Acupoint prescription. I do not know anything about traditional Chinese medicine, and I... Read more »
I had shoulder pain that wouldn’t go away. The third needle into my first session my sinses cleared up. I have had a lifetime issue with my breathing. I am now able to breathe through my nose and actually get a good breathe of air.

钟丽华， 女， 55岁。自2009年始，晚上睡觉至夜半时，被手指头末端发痒弄醒，以后日渐严重。起初以为是皮肤感染所致，于是自行用杀菌消炎的外用药膏涂抹治疗。涂药前期，还能有清凉止痒的功效，到后期，效果越来越差，病情越来越严重，经常由于严重瘙痒，以致无法入睡。后又怀疑是皮肤过敏，用抗过敏药治疗，仍然没效果。之后发展成十指末端都瘙痒，掉皮屑，表皮变硬，开裂，出血，新皮长出，又发痒。如此周而复始的循环。曾先后在深圳和广州的医院诊治，被诊断为洗涤剂过敏，采用激光治疗，中药汤药浸泡疗法及外用药膏涂敷等，均没有疗效。后来又找广州五代中医世家的传人求治，他也认为是洗涤剂过敏，并要求使用他自制的秘方膏药，每晚临睡前涂敷，并要戴手套保持药性。经用完他的秘制膏药后，还是没有效果。同时，钟丽华还长期有便秘及不规律周期性口腔溃疡的问题。在接受车霞医师的诊疗处方后，经服用中成药一个疗程（三个月）后，手指瘙痒的病情已经明显好转，表现在手指头瘙痒的数量及部位和面积在减少，瘙痒的时间间隔也在延长，瘙痒的程度也在减轻，已完全没有因手指头瘙痒而影响睡眠的情况发生。便秘问题和口腔溃疡问题也大大好转，疗效显著。现正进入第二个疗程治疗。由网上查询得知，患有此种所谓洗涤剂过敏症的患者不在少数，很多人都无法根治，精神和肢体都饱受痛苦折磨。如今，经车霞医师的诊疗，钟丽华的手指瘙痒症已得到很大的好转和改善。在此，衷 心感谢车霞医师及她的天人合一诊疗法，为广大疑难杂症病患者带来了康复的希望和信心！

During the summer solstice your yang energy reaches its peak. It is important to harness the peak of this yang energy, because as summer shifts into fall yang energy will decline. This great abundance of yang energy will translate throughout your body because during this season you are active and growing.
According to five element theory, during the summer the organ that receives extra energy is the heart. When the seasons change so do the organs we should focus on in the body. You should focus on the heart during summer. Feed the heart heart-nourishing foods and make sure to remain active so the heart receives positive energy. continue reading
Heart Afire: The Fire Element
The organs in Chinese medicine are more than just a physical representation. The organs include not only their physiological function, but also their mental, emotional, spiritual and elemental qualities that align with nature and the seasons. Let’s explore the heart.
The heart season is summer, and heart is considered the most yang: hot, bountiful and abundant. Yang is what is bright, moving, outward, hot and loud. Yin is what is more inward, still, dark and cooler. The color of the heart is associated with red, the climate is heat, the flavor is bitter and it’s paired organ is the small intestine (many urinary issues are due to “heart fire” heat descending). The sense aligned with heart is the tongue, and the vessels associated with heart are the tissues. The heart sound is laughing, and the emotion is joy. The heart houses what is known as the shen, which is the mind and spirit. continue reading
Fighting Flu Season with Acupuncture
While the flu is actually not a season, we have become programmed to think of it as the months of November through March. On average, the flu hospitalizes thousands every year, especially the young and elderly. There are also a number of deaths related to the flu, mostly due to people already having compromised immune systems.
The flu, also known as influenza, is a highly contagious respiratory infection that is caused by a number of viruses. To date, there are approximately 26 to 30 different known strains of the flu virus. This is one of the reasons the flu vaccine has only mild efficacy. The flu vaccine itself, typically only covers five to seven strains of the flu. Symptoms of the flu include fever, coughing, a sore throat, fatigue, muscle aches, pains, runny nose and watery eyes. continue reading

6 daily habits to lower your risk of cancer
Quit the tobacco, and don’t start if you haven’t already
It should be common sense now that smoking or chewing tobacco can lead to multiple types of cancer. If you are trying to quit, you are not alone. Try joining a support group or making a plan for yourself to set goals for quitting. Facing addiction is hard, but not using tobacco can save years of your life.
A healthy, well-rounded diet can do wonders for lowering your risk of cancer and overall wellbeing. Cut out processed sugar and instead focus on whole foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids that have been shown to help fight cancer. Other fish that can help reduce the risk of endometrial cancer in women include halibut, sardines and tuna. continue reading

Getting help can be hard at first, but can have a great impact for helping PTSD. continue reading

Ways to Keep Your Memory Sharp
Don’t forget about physical exercise
Believe it or not, when you’re exercising your body, you’re exercising your mind as well. Aerobic exercise gets your blood pumping, which increases the oxygen going to your brain and lowers your risk of disorders such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease that can lead to memory loss. If you can, start with some exercise in the morning. This can clear your head right off the bat to stay focused and alert during the day. Exercises that require coordination are especially helpful for keeping the mind active such as simply throwing a ball back and forth. continue reading

There are more than 80 chronic illnesses that are immune related including rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease, inflammatory bowel disease, lupus, and celiac disease.
