I tried the homeopathy prescribed by the Chinese doctor in Houston. It really did make a difference, however, I need to watch my finances so when my income improves I will definitely go back to him. Yesterday I was told about an herb for chronic diarrhea and started drinking the tea yesterday. It requires 8 cups a day to start and then 4 a day after a while. It actually tastes pleasant. I found a site that has some info on it. This is not where I purchased it. Hope this tea gets great results and also hope it helps others. I am always looking for ways to heal.

I'm confused.Chinese herbal medicine is typically not homeopathy at all in any way.It isn't fair to call all herbal medicine homeopathy. The vast majority of herbal medicine is not homeopathy. The tea sound much more like standard issue herbal mediine than the homeopathic version of alternative medicine.If it were homeopathic it would CAUSE diarrhea not cure it. Homeopathic is dosing you with something that CAUSES the same symptoms, not something that cures them directly.K.

That sounds down right frightening. I am so tired of witch doctors selling garbage to people with no regard for their safety. I know that IBS is a terrible sickness but we cannot get so discouraged that we throw caution to the wind and take things that have not been approved by the FDA for good reason. These people want to make money and they do not care what it takes to get it.

Well I'm not sure I'd call this doctor a witch doctor (I'm assuming they are a real chinese tradional medical doctor who is prescribing an herbal remedy some of which do actually work when tested).Homeopathic remedies cause the symptom at full dose, but are given at highly diluted doses (usually diluted out of existance, but in any case even when less diluted they are not at a dose that would cause the symptom).It would be nice to get all the herbal medicines tested, but I am certain the FDA will never get the power to regulate them. Because everytime anything comes up the people scream you will need a prescription to get every single vitamin (even when regulating vitamins like that is not what the bill actually says) and then it gets so much pressure that no congress person will pass it. No one wants to take vitamin C away from anyone.I have a fair amount of respect for real Traditional Chinese medicine (and hope that a fully trained, etc practioner is who they are seeing). A lot of it does work, most of it is safe (usually the stuff that isn't safe is stuff that someone put something nasty in that is not normally part of the remedy). There are a few peeps out there that sell the bad stuff, but most are really out to try to help people. Even the western trained doctor I met from China typically use the TCM home remedies rather than the western equivalent for most minor ailments. After all Tiger Balm has the same herbs in it Absorbine Jr. or Icy Hot or anything like that has in it.Just trying to say not all of it has to be evil, and I'm not sure where in what was posted you saw something so frightening
I do agree that the industry needs more regulation. Especially when you hear things like the latest herbal sexual enhancement stuff that was found to contain the prescripiton medications they supposedly replace with all natural herbs.

Sorry to confuse the issue. I had tried homeopathy from a very reputable Chinese doctor here in Houston. Yes, it is unusual, but I highly recommend him if anyone can afford it.Now to save on my budget and try something else I am doing an herb recommended by a lady that I met which had seen some good results with other issues using this herb. We are just trying for now. I will report back if it is working for me. I am just sharing my experience and hoping it will help someone else. We are all looking for answers. I hope we find them.

I do think that it is frightening to put some freaky unknown plant in or on you just because someone says to.
