Diabetes, Gout and Kidney dialysis

Do you know what the common one between the above? All are related with diabetes. If you think about gout or kidney dialysis separately, there is less chance to be treated well. Gout and kidney dialysis can be treated automatically if the diabetes problem is solved.


The real question is whether diabetes can be cured by acupuncture and herbal treatment as there was no tool for measuring diabetes long time ago. So how would they know diabetes?

  • The first method is to go out and pee. If ants gather for the pee, this means diabetes as ants have habits of loving sweet one.
  • When we get older, we tend to have incontinence; we have a tendency to piss a little bit in the panty. If there is lots of sugar, the urine turns stiff as it becomes dry making panty hard.
  • Collect the urine in the pot and boil. After the evaporation of water, whatever it is must be remained in the pot. When tasting the remains with a hand-dip, if sweet, this means diabetes.

Do you think these methods are unscientific? I think it is very scientific. So as they know how to diagnose, they create how to treat it.

Stomach Heat

There are three following symptoms; such as polydipsia, polyuria, and polyphagia. It is natural and easily understandable making piss more after drinking more water. The next question is eating more. This can be explained easily as the warm or hot stomach makes digestion fast and make hungry fast. All these can be handled easy as the reason comes from the heat in the stomach. The treatment is to make removing the heat from the stomach.

The reason blood glucose falls after exercise

We know even though blood glucose is higher, but after exercise it becomes to normal. Why is that? So far we don’t explain well the reason. The reason I am going to explain is just a hypothesis by me alone. Insulin is supposed to get into cells. If the size of insulin is bigger than the gate of cells, insulin can’t get into cells. After exercising the temperature of cells will rise and the heat has a tendency to expend. This means the size of the gate of cells is also expended. The bigger gate makes insulin easy to pass through the gate. If this hypothesis is right, the size of insulin produced in pancreas may be larger than the normal size.

For another example

Many women experience blood clots coming out during menstruation. Unusual chunk sizes give a lot of pain to women. As just as the unusual size in menstruation causes pains, the unusual insulin size also may cause some problems in different ways.

How to improve

If ancestors knew how to diagnose diabetes, they also understand how to treat it. So what would improve the functionality of pancreas? The most basic thing in my opinion is by controlling the blood circulation coming in and out through pancreas with acupuncture treatments. If unusual damp heat is found by our diagnoses, it is desirable to take oriental herbal tonics. When you do follow our recommended treatments, not only glucose level becomes normal, but also other symptoms become better or improved.

Kidney dialysis

urinary systemThe common symptom that patients have kidney dialysis is lack of energy, less or no appetite, fever, skin itching, muscle convulsion, headache, insomnia, and arthralgia and etc. There are so many restrictions on foods containing phosphorous, sodium or potassium etc. to patients.

Most patients do 3 times a week lasting 3 to 5 hours each time depending on machines and method. Patients feel very tired after dialysis. They can’t have normal life at all.

Some medical professionals recommend alternatives like acupuncture as they know kidney dialysis alone can’t treat kidney dysfunctions. This dialysis just maintains as it is at best. Some knows that acupuncture helps a lot for this condition. Here is a story.

A lady visited me as her nurse recommended me to try acupuncture. After a few treatments for kidney dialysis, her urine amount was almost the same amount as she was normal. Her appetite came back and wrinkles on her face almost disappeared. Everyone was surprised when they sew her. Here was one problem. She had a test every month. The test showed all items are improved such as glucose level from 213 to 86, ALT from 76 to 47 etc. after one month. However the number of phosphorus was shown a little higher than before. RN pointed creatinine number increased from 4.48 to 4.67. I explained this may be a good sign as all phosphorus deposited in filtering system began to break out, so more phosphorus may be in the blood. Her number of dialysis was reduced from three to two per week. She was so happy with this result, however she didn’t continue further treatments with financial difficulty.


Gout is a kind of arthritis that occurs when uric acid builds up in blood and causes joint inflammation.

1. Acute gout is a painful condition that typically affects one joint.
2. Chronic gout is repeated episodes of pain and inflammation, which may involve more than one joint.

The condition by western medicine may also develop in people with:

  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Obesity
  • Sickle cell anemia and other anemias
  • Leukemia and other blood cancers

The first three items such as diabetes, kidney disease, and obesity are much related with each other or caused by the same reason in my opinion. This is caused by spleen dysfunction originally.

If you treat without considering spleen dysfunction, the original cause will be remained the same. You treat only the symptoms. That’s why it is difficult to get rid of pains.

Most patients experience the pain disappears with less than 6 acupuncture treatments. I also highly recommend to try herbal tonics to treat diabetes. They don’t need pain medications any more. Whoever follows my advice told me they sleep better, feel free from pains and edema also gone.
