Unfortunately, madaming kunwari lang kaya nakaka inis.

For most people, referrals play a major role in which practitioner / medicine man they go to and this is probably for a reason.

My friend is a UP Professor who practices Chinese Medicine. I think he's better than some quacks out there because he will be the first one to tell you if you should go to a "conventional" doctor instead. Also from experience it's not good to get herbal medicines over the counter, lalo na kung chinese medicine. I mean those guys study YEARS sa university before getting license as Chinese doctors. Yon nga problema dito, nde mo alm kung yung mga nasa binondo nag aral talaga o nakapulot lang ng kuwento sa lolo nila.

anyway website ng UP guy http://www.tan-gatue.net


i also strongly recommend him. he's my batchmate at UP med

I know Dr. Robin Navarro's contact number. PM me if you want. He was able to treat a lot of non-curable conditions using his methods. If your doctor told you that your loved one's case is hopeless maybe he could help you out. I'm not saying his methods are 100% effective, but i don't think it'd hurt to try.

they are herbalist and chinese doctors in metro manila who are into this...

i met some of them when we are doing some medical missions in manila...some of the herbals are not over the counter you have to consult doctors for the proper combination of which and preparation and of course intake....

i also have fond of some of their teas and supplements...

Scar sa lungs? Caused by TB? You should go to a pulmonologist and have it checked. Baka active pa ang TB mo.

tried herbal before...from a chinese doctor, taste bitter and sour...medyo mabagal ang effects kaya tumigil ako pero heard news that people who continued taking herbal medicine being sold in chinatown manila for a long time saw the good effects. Mostly effective in the kidneys as far i saw.

and you are saying because of what evidence? what and how many clinical trials? what is the exact mechanism of action? what are the side effects?

look, i am an oncologist.
when my patients ask me if they can take herbal meds, i have this to say: as long as there are no adverse effects on you (which, btw, you cannot guarantee 100%, even with western meds), as long as you dont take them alongside the chemo, then go. Its your decision, not mine. Cancer is cancer, anyway. But i wouldnt exactly encourage it.

The problem with us is that sometimes, the advertising and marketing goes into our heads even before we are able to think. Ive had patients who have tried herbal meds and came back having stage 1V, with masses much bigger than what you can imagine. And all we end up with, both the patient and me, are regrets.

So make sure you know what you say.
