well i just talked to my friend and she said that he does NOT do phone consults, and shes not giving me his number. i know shes being very unreasonable, dont ask me why. I'll keep trying.
Supposedly this guy is very moody to the point where she had to bring a cake to "appease him" when i went (im white), cause she didn't know how he would react to foreigners.
Have you tried acupuncture? I know that this herbalist is highly recommended, but I went to an acupuncturist recently who is basically putting me on the same regimen of herbs and gave me just about the exact same explanation/remedy for my symptoms.
im sorry about this, I'll talk to her more. Meanwhile, tell your friend to hang in there.
