No cure but may help: There is not a cure, but some research shows that gingko biloba decreases the number of raynaud's vasospasm attacks. Gingko has vasodilator effects. Like other non-fda-regulated medicines, traditional chinese meds are of uncertain purity, composition, strength, etc...

Traditional chinese medicine for fecal impaction?

Traditional chinese medicine for fecal impaction?

Not sure: Many of our medicines are derived from plants in our environment. If traditional chinese medicine means using some herbs with mild laxative effect (we still have these in our natural food stores!), more water intake, and perhaps a gentle enema, that seems reasonable. However, i can't see how acupuncture would aid. If this doesn't improve quickly, see your doctor: there may be a more serious cause. ...Read more

What's your opinion of chiropractors, acupuncturists, naturopaths and other alternative medicine specialists?

Not really: Chiropractic relies on an outmoded theory of disease causation which has been disproven time and again.

It is legit in the sense that their lobbying and legal suit actions have forced coverage for chiros in most jurisdictions. ...Read more
