hmmmmm.... if you decide to go back to your TCM practitioner, just tell them that the treatments are too strong and to hold back a bit. From my understanding a practitioner normally starts light and then works up to a tolerable level. But this may not always be the case.
So did you recover when using TCM? Did you stay the full course? and after recovery did you continue to see your TCM Doctor regularily for check ups? I appologize in advance for my curiousity... please do not answer if you do not want to.
