Commonly Treated Ailments

1. Hay Fever/Allergic Rhinitis

Hay fever, or seasonal allergic rhinitis, affects over 20 percent of the people living in the U.S., particularly during spring. The symptoms of hay fever develop as a reaction to allergens in the air, most notably to pollens in the spring. Symptoms of hay fever, typically include nasal congestion, a clear runny nose, sneezing, nose and eye itching, and tearing-up. These allergic symptoms often interfere with one's quality of life and overall health. Seasonal allergic rhinitis can lead to other diseases such as sinusitis and asthma. Hay fever is usually treated with drugs. However over time, one may develop resistance to the drug requiring increasingly stronger dosages. In some cases, drugs are even ineffective.

After extensive research, Yan Cui developed a unique acupuncture treatment for hay fever. The advantages of of treating hay fever with acupuncture are:

- High efficiency (2 to 6 treatments depending on seriousness).
- No need to take drugs.
- No side effects.

2. Sciatica & Herniated Disk
Neck; Back, Shoulder, Knee & Heel Pain

In China's recent medical history, a renowned bone doctor, Luo You Ming, was honored as the "Saint of Bones" because of her unique treatment of bone related problems and illnesses. She was especially good at treating Sciatica & Herniated disk neck problems. Lou You Ming lived up to 110 years old and helped numerous patients in her clinic for 90 years. Yan Cui learned Lou You Ming's techniques while he was in China. Today, he has combined these techniques with acupuncture to develop a more refined technique. As a result, he has been successful in treating numerous cases of Sciatica & Herniated disk neck problems, some of which had been diagnosed as untreatable by other doctors. In addition, Yan Cui is especially skilled at treating Back, Shoulder, Knee & Heel joint pain problems.

3.Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a condition where the outer part of the elbow becomes painful and tender, usually as a result of a specific strain or overuse. Although it is called "tennis elbow", it should be noted that it is not restricted to tennis players. Anyone who does a lot of work involving lifting at the elbow or repetitive movements at the wrist is susceptible to tennis elbow. Common treatment is to apply heat/ice on the spot and to take pain-killers. However, this is a time-consuming process and may not specifically address the problem. Yan Cui's HEA treatment has been successful in fully curing tennis elbow after 1 to 3 treatments.

4. Numbness on the Thigh

This illness tends to afflict middle-aged or older people. Symptoms include numbness or pain similar to ant-bites on the outside part of thigh. The size of the area is not consistent. Currently, TCM has no cure for this kind of problem. However, the HEA treatment for thigh numbness has been proven to alleviate symptoms and in some case, even cure the problem.

5. Migraine

Migraines are episodes of moderate to severe headaches (typically a pulsating pain on one-side of the head) lasting between several hours to three days, accompanied by gastrointestinal upsets, such as nausea and vomiting, and a heightened sensitivity to bright lights and noise. Although a migraine is a common affliction, traditional treatments are typically expensive. In extreme cases, periodic or unpredictable disability may even cause job displacement due to patients' inability to perform the required work duties.

Other than the traditional way of taking pain-killer drugs to stop headaches, a High Efficient Acupuncture treatment can be a very effective way to cure the problem.

6. Diabetes

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. There are 20.8 million people in the US , or 7% of the population, who have diabetes. Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) refers to diabetes as Wasting-Thirst syndrome, caused by the imbalance of Yin and Yang energy. The most common manifestations of diabetes are excessive thirst, hunger, and urination. Each symptom reflects problem in different parts of body. TCM/ Acupuncture treatment usually would focus on nourishing Yin, clearing the heat, and resolving the patterns of Disharmony in the body. Some Chinese herbs have been used to treat diabetes and proven of effective in lowering the sugar contents and eliminating the side effects caused by diabetes, such as losing eye sight, numb of the limbs, etc..

7. Shingles

Shingles (herpes zoster) is a potentially serious and painful disease, it is an outbreak of rash or blisters on the skin that is caused by the same virus that causes chickenpox the varicella-zoster virus. Remnants of the chickenpox virus hide out in the spinal column until another condition such as stress or a weakened immune system causes the virus to travel through the nerves and cause an outbreak. Depending on where the disease manifests, there can be serious complications. Catching the outbreak early and treating the virus as it shows up on the skin is vital to avoiding permanent scarring and nerve damage, known as post-herpetic neuralgia. Antiviral drugs, most effective within the first few days of the disease, are often given to patients by the western doctors. Unfortunately, there is no 100% cure from this treatment.

Over the years, Yan Cui has found a way to combine different treatments in TCM to treat the Shingles with very good outcomes. Which, has helped a lot of pathients in serious pain.

8. Bladder Control

This illness tends to afflict middle-aged or older people. In some cases, the bladder may even lose control when one is coughing. With the HEA treatment, bladder control improves noticeably after only 3 to 5 treatments.

9. Miscellaneous Illness

There are a lot of illnesses which don't fit into any category of known diseases, which Western doctors usually don't know how to treat. However, an experienced Chinese doctor usually can diagnose the problem through the TCM theory/practice and then cure the illness by the combination of applying acupuncture and taking the Chinese herbs. This is the area that Yan Cui has a lot of success rates and can be proud of.
