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！

Cultivating Defensive Qi to Fight Summer Allergies
As the rebirth of Spring gives way to the long, hot days of summer, seasonal allergies may not go away with the change of season but might just shift to a new or more intense set of symptoms. These warmer temperatures can lead to even more pollen production which can lead to even harsher symptoms that Spring produced.
While Spring allergy season brings the pollen from the trees and flowers, summer is the time for grasses and weeds to release their pollen which then triggers a whole new round of sneezing, watery and red eyes. While pollen is still the main culprit, weeds like ragweed (the most common allergy because it can travel for hundreds of miles in the wind), sagebrush, tumbleweed, and pigweed to name a few will bring their own set of irritants. And grasses like Bermuda, blue grasses, sweet vernal and red top will also cause havoc for the sinuses. And don’t forget the increase in pet hair as pets shed to keep cool in the warm summer months.
And adding another layer of irritation is the insect bites that come from some of summer’s new residents like bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and fire ants. Dust mites also peak during summer and thrive in warm, humid temperatures.
Instead of just treating the symptoms of seasonal allergies, acupuncture goes to the root problem by rebalancing the body’s energy systems, enhancing the immune system, and helping the body to heal naturally. Your acupuncturist will go through a complete health history to help you determine the cause of the allergies and target meridians on the body including the lungs, stomach, spleen, and colon to circulate qi (a type of energy connected to immunity) and provide a defense against seasonal allergies. Stimulating certain acupuncture points on the body will lead to a restoration of balance and relief from the sometimes debilitating symptoms of seasonal allergies.
For a one-two punch in fighting your summer allergy symptoms, take the following precautions as you begin your acupuncture treatments:
- Limit your time outdoors when pollen counts, and smog levels are too high.
- Use an air purifier to keep pollutants at bay.
- Make sure you regularly clean air filters, vents, and anywhere pollen can collect.
- Wash your bedding and rugs in hot water so dust mites don’t have a chance to attack.
- Dust and vacuum often and use a vacuum with a HEPA filter.
- Wear a mask when cleaning and working in your yard.
Your acupuncturist may also develop an herbal formula to help you deal with your allergy symptoms. Herbs are a great addition to your treatments so talk to your acupuncturist about all your options. Don’t spend another groggy day suffering from your symptoms and the effects of the over-the-counter medications. Let your acupuncturist help you develop a safe and effective treatment protocol, so summer allergies don’t leave you hiding inside during these warm months.
3 Tips for Healthy Summer Fun
Summer is here and it’s time to get out and enjoy the warm weather. But it’s also important to stay safe and healthy so here are three tips to help you stay healthy while enjoying these longer days.
The first tip is to get up and move! Now that it stays lighter into the evening hours, make sure you can get outside and move. This is especially important if you have a job where you sit most of the day. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends at least 150 minutes of aerobic physical activity every week. This increase in action has immediate benefits like better sleep and reduced stress and anxiety.
The second tip is to protect your skin by using proper sunscreen and taking care of your skin throughout the summer months. The most natural way to protect your skin is to cover up when out in the sun. This includes long sleeve sun guards, hats, sunglasses, and bathing suit coverups. Using an SPF sunscreen is also important, as is building up your exposure slowly, especially if you live most of the year in a cold climate.
The third tip is to add more delicious summer fruits and veggies to your diet. You may have heard of “eating the rainbow,” which means eating foods that are each color of the rainbow regularly. Another suggestion is to make half of your plate veggies. This is easier to do in the summer when there are so many delicious fruits and vegetables that are in season and easily available.
And a bonus tip is to make sure you stay hydrated! If you are going to be spending the day out and about in the heat (especially if you are exercising or otherwise exerting yourself) you should boost your water intake. It’s recommended to add 12 ounces of water for every 30 minutes you spend in the heat sweating.
Use these tips to make the most of this time of year where the days are longer and warmer than usual, and you can get out and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Your body will appreciate the Vitamin D, exercise, and heathy eating!
A Taste of Summer
Summer brings with it a variety of vegetables and fruits that aren’t available during the rest of the year. Two of the most abundant ingredients are tomatoes and zucchini. Here’s a great recipe that combines both for a dish you can make at home or share at a summer BBQ. This zucchini and tomato bake only takes minutes to prep and can help you use those vegetables before they spoil.
The ingredient list is simple:
- 3 medium zucchinis, chopped
- 1 pint of cherry tomatoes, halved) If you want to really be fancy, use the multi-colored tomatoes
- 2 cloves of minced garlic
- Extra-virgin olive oil for a final drizzle
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/3 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons of basil, torn for garnish
And putting this dish together is quick and simple. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the chopped zucchini, halved tomatoes, garlic, olive oil drizzle, salt and pepper to taste and mix everything until it is well combined. Pour vegetables in a small baking dish and sprinkle with parmesan. Bake 35 minutes until golden brown and delicious! Add the basil garnish and serve.
Don’t let summer pass without making this dish that combines two of summer’s greatest culinary gifts.
