TCM to reduce the damage caused by surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy

In practice, I generally follow standard breast cancer treatment procedures, such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and endocrine therapy.

However, TCM does have unique efficacy in alleviating the side effects and improving radiotherapy and chemotherapy tolerance. TCM’s strength lies in regulation, so I use WM to eliminate the tumors and TCM to strengthen body resistance.

The tumor is a life-threatening disease, wherein its natural course, it will prevail against the resistance.

Therefore, we must use powerful WM medicines to get rid of tumors. Chemotherapy could kill tumors relatively rapidly. But its shortcoming is the incompleteness.

No chemotherapy is sensitive to all tumor cells. The last tumor cells must be killed by the body itself rather than the chemo drugs.

Another disadvantage is excessive chemotherapy is destructive to the body’s defense mechanism.

For example, chemo and radiotherapy may inhibit bone marrow, destroy hematopoietic function, cause severe gastrointestinal reactions and other local and systemic radiation reactions.

Therefore, after going through radiotherapy and chemotherapy, cancer patients’ physique is largely destroyed.

On the other hand, the body’s immune system can kill certain tumors without any side effects or damage to normal cells.

Its weakness lies in it is only effective when the tumors are relatively small. For larger tumors, the immune system becomes limited. When the tumor becomes too large, it is almost impossible to kill the tumor by immunity alone.

Therefore, doctors must do two things from a practical point of view: remove the tumors and strengthen body resistance.

Due to the reasons mentioned above, a small number of tumor cells will inevitably remain, which are impossible to remove completely, thereby the problem of metastasis and recurrence.

So, we rely on the body’s immunity to kill the last remaining tumor cells.

When tumors pose an imminent threat to life, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy have to be conducted; the main task becomes getting rid of the tumors while making the best effort to preserve the resistance.

Patients are generally weak and accompanied by damage of the heart, liver, lung, spleen, and kidney in the TCM concept. Some patients would even become incontinent as much as coughing after chemotherapy.

Usually, WM treatment stops here, and the rest is left to the body. But in my opinion, this is not enough.

Some doctors turn to TCM to reduce the damage caused by surgery, radiotherapy, and chemotherapy and improve patients’ life quality.

The practice has proved that TCM combined with radiotherapy and chemotherapy can ensure smooth treatment, improve resistance, and prolong survival. It is an effective method for treating malignant tumors.

Breast Lump Reduction & Removal Consultation

What Are The Initial Symptoms of Breast Cancer?

There are a variety of symptoms of breast cancer. However, the most easily recognizable is always the seemingly innocent lump or cyst at first.

One school of the theory states that these bumps all arise from stagnant breast milk not discharged in time, therefore accumulate in the mammary glands. They may test benign at first, but eventually, all turn malignant. So one should look out for the bumps and try to remove them as soon as possible.

The good news is it’s possible to remove these early lumps, and even without the scary mastectomy or chemotherapy.

The easiest method is through massage. Work on the areas around the bumps, especially the connecting channels or meridians’ vicinity, and the bumps would become softer and disappear in time. However, this may be the method that takes the longest time.

Next is moxibustion, which is as easy as lighting a moxa cone and approaching specific acupoints. The moxa’s heat would penetrate the skin and into the cyst, where stagnation occurs, softening and removing it. This will be relatively faster than massaging and may take a couple of months before any results can be observed.

There are also acupuncture and TCM prescriptions, which would work faster but require help from a top-notch TCM physician, especially the latter. TCM prescriptions could cure some of the late-stage breast cancers, but probably no more than a handful of doctors in the US can make it happen since the late Master Dr. Ni.

Causes of Gastric Cancer -2

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of T.C.M., Florida

Another cause is the abuse of medicines such as antibiotics, painkillers, and vitamins, which would weaken the stomach and give rise to reduced stomach resistance. There is also nurturing of cancer by taking various vitamins over the years.

All these would eventually lead to stomach cancer. Many patients think their cancer is out of misfortune, but it is more than that.

If you want to prevent stomach cancer, please my following advice:

  1. Eat meals at fixed hours and amount.
  2. Have desserts only occasionally.
  3. Keep a good mood during mealtime.
  4. Stay away from the abuse of alcohol, drugs, and coffee.

With these simple measures, you will prevent gastric cancer from happening.

For someone who already had this disease, please do not panic and seek help from a good TCM doctor, who will cure it within two weeks. If he is not sure of the result, ask him to tell the truth because it is a matter of life and death.

Once again, it is understandable that people may die of fear, ignorance, or by accident, but they should never die of illnesses caused by wrong treatment.

Causes of Gastric Cancer – 1

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of T.C.M., Florida

Imagine you suddenly wake up in the middle of a night, vomit a lot of blood, and feel very uncomfortable in the stomach. You hurried to the hospital for a gastroscopy.

The doctor says you won’t need to go to work the next day because it is lymphoma metastasis to malignant gastric cancer; you must immediately excise the stomach and connect your duodenum to the esophagus, and followed by six months of chemotherapy.

Will you follow the suggestion? What are you going to do?

Frankly, it won’t matter how you choose, because you will die either way. Countless people die every year in the same situation.

If it happens to your enemies, you can celebrate with champagne. But if it is you or your loved ones, please keep reading carefully, so no one will have to die.

In WM, the cause of stomach cancer is entirely unknown, and the following research is for you and your friends and families only.

There are several causes of stomach cancer.

1. Excessive drinking;

2. A fondness for coffee;

3. Love of sweets.

 All these are relevant to acidity– wine is acidic, and coffee is highly acidic.   If all we use were sucrose, aka cane sugar, then there won’t be any problem.

But most of the sugar in stores is refined sugar, whose grain size is much smaller due to the processing, making them edible by the bacteria in the body.

Therefore the discharged metabolites are acidic too. Due to excessive acid staying in the body for too long, and this acid is different from the stomach acid, therefore, competes with it and causes severe consequences.

As a result, people would get stomach cancer without realizing it. WM doctors are not aware of this cause, and all they use is allopathy after the disease formed, so the patient will almost certainly die.

Causes of Breast Cancer 11- Why Women Should Stay Away from Breast Exams

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of TCM, Florida

According to TCM theory, both emotional distress and physical heart injury, often caused by Western medicines, can be attributed to impaired Heart function. So excessive worry, melancholy, nervousness, fear, hate, and sorrow are all contributing factors to breast cancer.

For example, a woman goes to a WM doctor for a physical exam every year. Afterward, she gets too nervous to sleep due to worry about the result. She may even wake up in the middle of the night because of bad dreams about the result.

Assume the result is negative, which is relieving for now. But what about next year? She will face the same situation again, and the cycle will continue in the future.

It is almost certain that she would get breast cancer one day, not only because of the repeat mental stress but also the physical harm introduced by the exam, e.g., the surgical biopsy.

This the reason why I always say the more examinations a woman receives, the easier it is to get breast cancer.

This kind of annual mental stress alone would make a woman scare to death.

The Department of Health in Taiwan encourages women to have annual breast exams, but is it working?

If so, why has the death rate of Taiwanese women from breast cancer been increasing every year since the policy was introduced? Why is it the second-highest among all diseases now?

Such wrong policies were made out of a lack of understanding of how and why breast cancer forms and unknowingly caused many innocent women to get breast cancer out of fear.

Causes of Breast Cancer 10- Summary of Pathogenic Factors

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of TCM, Florida

Based on the previous arguments, we can summarize the cause of breast cancer as the following:

1. People who are depressed, unforgiving, and can’t let go.

2. Women who like to take Western medicines and vitamins; these will make your hands and feet cold and vulnerable to breast cancer.

3. Excessive mental stress without route for relief, such as worrying about children. If born with a meek and restrained personality, it is also easier to get breast cancer.

4. Women who listen to WM advice and conduct frequent breast exams– their risk is exceptionally high.

5. Menopausal women who believe that taking female hormones could prevent osteoporosis. They are prone to breast cancer and brain tumor, leukemia, liver cancer, lung cancer, lupus erythematosus, malignant lymphoma, etc.

If combined with constipation, one could almost be sure that cancer is on the way.

6.  Women who are jealous and like to start rumors. The fabrication of rumors is usually accompanied by heartburn and insomnia, leading to menstrual disorders, not to mention the constant worry about being discovered. So they are also the high-risk group for breast cancer.

7. Hard-working women whose energy is exhausted for the family. Usually, they are busy at work, take little rest, focus on the husband and children, and forget to take good care of themselves, making them vulnerable to breast cancer.

Causes of Breast Cancer 9- What Is The Best Treatment for Breast Cancer?

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of TCM, Florida

How do you find out initially when your heart is injured? A clear sign is chronic cold hands, especially if accompanied by insomnia. This combination is a sure indicator of a weak heart.

It also means that you must have done something wrong, such as taking too many Western medicines, including vitamins.

If so, one could seek help from TCM, either in the form of treatment or consultation. The situation would improve- some are faster, like in taking TCM prescriptions; others are slower, such as via regimen and change in daily habits.

Once the heart function is improved, excess milk will no longer accumulate in the breast but be discharged via menstruation. Moreover, existing milk accumulation would also diminish and disappear eventually- hence the curing of breast cancer starts.

In the initial stages, some physical therapy may help as well, such as massaging and moxibustion. These methods would soften the bumps in the breast and remove them over time.

So, there are essentially four ways in TCM that could all treat the best cancer; they are:

  1. Massage

It can help soften the breast bumps over time.

2. Moxibustion

It can also remove bumps in the breast by the heat generated during moxibustion.

3. Acupuncture

Acupuncture acupoints or channels related to the breast bumps would help soften and make them disappear too.

4. TCM prescriptions

The first three methods work best during the early stages of breast cancer and can be done more or less by patients themselves.

However, this last method is highly professional and can only be performed by seasoned TCM physicians with previous successful experience in such treatment, who are not easy to come across.

It is best to combine TCM prescriptions with some of the other three methods for better and faster efficacy under the physician’s proper instruction.

It would be a wonderful world if the public could only receive the correct medical knowledge and information so that they would be free of illness.

Causes of Breast Cancer 8- Why Men Can Get Breast Cancer Too?

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of TCM, Florida

In ancient China, there were also records of men getting breast cancer.

The typical case happened on a candidate for the imperial examination- the equivalence of the modern Civil Servant Examination, but is more competitive and held every three years.

When he repeatedly failed the exam over the years, small lumps would start to form around his nipples, then break, and followed by discharge of the yellow liquid. Eventually, it would develop into breast cancer.

The mechanism of men getting breast cancer is similar to that of women, except it is not caused by refluent milk, but semen, back into the breasts. Men’s physiological circulatory system is opposite to that of women, which will be explained in the future.

Causes of Breast Cancer 7- Is Breast Cancer Hereditary?

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of TCM, Florida

One assertion of WM is that breast cancer can be passed on to the next generation.

According to TCM theory, breast cancer is nonhereditary but caused by hereditary personality.

First, if a mother is sentimental, chances are her daughter may have the same personality.

Secondly, the daughter is told that breast cancer is hereditary, so she would become worried and scared.

Then she may share the same habits as her mother, like taking Western medicines, including vitamins.

All of these would lead to breast cancer, which will be referred to by WM as evidence that breast cancer is indeed hereditary.

WM still doesn’t know the source of breast cancer, which is excess milk accumuled in the breast hardening and developing into breast cancer. But this has not prevented them from making false claims and causing panic among women.

As a result, women would worry and start to get annual mammography and biopsy, further increasing the risk of breast cancer. Hence the cycle of the nightmare.

Therefore, the high mortality rate of breast cancer is caused by the wrong WM theories.

Causes of Breast Cancer 6- Constipation, Lung Cancer, And Liver Cancer

by Dr. Ni Haixia at Hantang College of TCM, Florida

For women after menopause and having their uterus and ovaries excised, they should be aware of a common misunderstanding that there would be no breast milk after menopause. A woman’s breasts will still produce milk even after menopause.

What changes is since the milk cannot be expelled through the uterus, the only other exit is the large intestine. Therefore feces become the only channel for discharging the milk.

I often say to patients with amenorrhea that I would rather see diarrhea on you than constipation because I know good bowel movement can prevent women without menstruation from getting lung cancer.

Many women never smoke but somehow still get lung cancer, and it is caused by a similar mechanism as breast cancer mentioned above.

WM attributes the cause to inhaling too much cooking fumes, even though many women’s cooking does not produce any fumes at all.

Suppose a woman after menopause is perplexed with long-term constipation and goes to a WM doctor because she doesn’t want to endure the symptoms of hot flashes, irritability, night sweats, and the like during menopause.

She is told to take female hormones, which would stimulate the body to produce more unnecessary milk. However, due to constipation, this excessive milk cannot be discharged from the body.

Meanwhile, she is annoyed by her husband at home, which brings harm to her lungs. Consequently, she would face the risk of lung cancer.

When a problem arises in the lungs, WM would have no clue, but TCM will know because the circulation time of the Qi and Blood of the Lung Meridian is 3:00~5:00 AM. If you wake up at this time every day, it means there is a lung problem.

Similarly, the circulation time of the Liver Meridian is 1:00~3:00AM. If you wake up during this period, it may be an early sign of liver cancer.

According to my experience, TCM could detect lung or liver cancer about two years before WM.

At this time, all TCM needs is to cure a woman’s constipation, and then give the patient the classic prescription of Wenjing Decoction to help her get through the menopause, and the ticking time bomb will be defused.

This is the meaning of ‘The best measure is to treat a disease before its onset.’
