Frozen Shoulder

‘Frozen Shoulder’ is the common name of adhesive capsulitis, a condition that causes pain and stiffness in the shoulder. As its name speaks for itself, patients with frozen shoulder experience a limited range of shoulder movement. It most commonly affects middle-aged people. People with recent shoulder injuries are also at risk for developing frozen shoulder. According to TCM, long term exposure of shoulder joints to cold and/or wet weather increases the chance of suffering from frozen shoulder. Invasion of coldness and dampness causes blockage of meridian, Qi and blood circulation is hence hindered. Although frozen shoulder generally gets better over time, it could take up to 3 years.

中藥治療濕疹

一到夏季,各種的皮膚問題立即浮現,近來不少病人都受濕疹困擾,痕癢得不能入睡。 病情日久、反覆發作的病人,除了濕重、熱重,還有各種虛證的表現,表現為氣虛和陰虛,容易疲累,腸胃失調,皮膚乾燥、潮紅痕癢;同時夾雜濕熱,既有上述虛證的症狀,亦伴有皮膚流滋水等濕熱症狀。如病人長期外用類固醇,皮膚會較薄。這個階段的病人就不能單純用苦寒的藥去清熱利濕,否則會令體質更虛,而不能減輕痕癢。 戒類固醇過程非常痛苦,中藥在止癢方面當然沒有類固醇和抗過敏西藥快,所以不少人病人在治療過程當中都常有放棄的念頭,想要立即塗類固醇止癢。但是,要根治濕疹似乎暫時只有中藥比較可行。 開始停用類固醇後,皮膚痕癢有可能會加重,此時同時服用中藥,可以對抗停藥後的痕癢增多。此反覆時期會持續2周左右,如長期使用類固醇的病人,則會更長。此段期間考驗病人的意志,能夠捱過停用類固醇的皮膚反應,繼續服食中藥,皮膚就會逐漸痊癒。 Medium: https://medium.com/@himyattong FB: https://www.facebook.com/himyattong/ IG: https://www.instagram.com/himyattong/ Website: https://www.himyattong.com
