(二) How to deal with the hypofunction of the middle-aged and the elderly, such as a slight decrease in the estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) of renal function? 

The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is a test that measures your level of kidney function and determines your stage of kidney disease. It is a normal and natural phenomenon that the function of middle-aged and elderly people gradually declines. The renal function of many middle-aged and elderly people, such as eGFR, is slightly decreased, and other renal function indicators are normal without clinical symptoms. Even the family doctor will not notice and talk to the patient. How does traditional Chinese medicine deal with and solve this problem? Mr. Zhao Shaoqin (1918-2001) (born in the family of three generations of imperial physicians in Beijing, tenured professor of Beijing University of Chinese Medicine, famous contemporary Chinese medicine doctor, Chinese medicine educator). Zhao Shaoqin Professor has three monographs on academic achievements, "Theory of Nephritis is Not Simple Kidney Deficiency", "New Theory of Chronic Kidney Disease", and "Experience of Treating Uremia with Traditional Chinese Medicine". Zhao Shaoqin Professor believes that "the problem of diet for patients with nephritis: should not take all spicy and fragrant and rich in fat and protein products, and at the same time emphasise the control of diet to reduce the burden on the kidneys. Generally, the daily main food should not exceed 250g, supplemented by fresh vegetables. Sweet and greasy food, it helps to increase dampness and produce phlegm, while spicy and pungent, fragrant and dry frying food, it turns into fire and damages yin, aggravates the generation of qi stagnation and accumulated heat, and hinders the smooth flow of qi. From the perspective of modern medicine, protein is a nitrogen-containing compound, and most of these substances are excreted through glomerular filtration. If the patient eats too much fat and protein, it will cause increasing the production of nitrogen and waste and will increase the burden on the sick kidneys, not only can't they get enough proper nutritional supplements, but it is not good for the recovery of the disease. In addition, strengthening exercise, such as walking for two hours a day, promotes nitrogen excretion from the kidneys. Facts have proved that limited dietary and balanced exercise play an important role in adjuvant drug treatment." "Chinese medicine cools blood and removes blood stasis, the diet without fat and protein, and insisting on exercise are three key methods for treatment of chronic kidney disease.Those three methods must be used together and can not lack one of them. With the close cooperation of the patient, the treatment will be able to achieve good results. Chronic kidney disease can be radically cured and chronic kidney function damage can be reversed. This conclusion has been confirmed in clinical practice.” There are more middle-aged and elderly people around us with hypofunction. What should we do to treat them? According to Mr. Zhao's article, I propose that if there is a slight decrease in the renal function like eGFR in the middle-aged and elderly people, the total intake of fat and protein should be reduced, the burden on the kidneys should be reduced then, and exercise should be strengthened, such as walking for two hours a day, which helps the kidneys excrete nitrogen. Walk for half an hour after breakfast, half an hour after lunch, and an hour after dinner. I think this plan is more moderate and workable. It is good for the recovery of body function and also easy to come true.




赵绍琴先生(1918-2001)(出生于北京三代御医之家,北京中医药大学终身教授,当代著名中医学家,中医教育家)。赵绍琴先生有三篇有关学术成就专论,《肾炎非单纯肾虚论》,《慢性肾病新论》,《中医药治疗尿毒症的体会》。先生认为 “肾炎患者的饮食调养问题:应禁食一切辛辣香燥和富含脂肪,蛋白质之品,同时强调控制饮食量,以减轻肾脏负担。一般每日不超过250g主食,辅以新鲜蔬菜。甘甜肥厚,有助于增湿生痰,辛辣香燥每多化火伤阴,加重郁热生成,阻碍气机通畅。从现代医学讲,蛋白质是含氮化合物,这些物质排泄大多要从肾小球滤过排出,食用多了,氮及废物产生增加,就要加重已病肾脏的负担,机能不仅得不到应有的营养补充,反不利于病情恢复。另外,加强锻炼,每日散步两小时,有助于肾脏排氮功能的恢复。事实证明,饮食禁忌和功能锻炼在辅助药物治疗中起着重要的作用。” “中药凉血化瘀,饮食忌食蛋白,坚持运动锻炼是治疗慢性肾病的三大法宝。治宜三者并行,缺一不可。在患者的密切配合下如法治疗,必能收到良好的效果。慢性肾病可以根治,慢性肾功能损害可以逆转,这一结论必能在临床实践中获得证实。”

  (一) How to deal with gastrointestinal polyps and other tumors and the corresponding diet therapy

At the beginning of the year, I learned that my youngest uncle had died of stomach cancer. In addition to sadness, I felt more pain from my heart. It was already in the later stage when his stomach cancer was discovered. So he passed away after more than half a year . People can't  revive when they have gone. Only by drawing lessons from it, does one make  progress and be worthy and respectful to the dead. I talked to my father about the cause of his stomach cancer, which may be related to long-term smoking and drinking. And also I remembered that about 35 years ago, my uncle had a hoarse voice because of multiple polyps in his throat and vocal cords. He had surgery at the hospital where I worked. He felt fine after surgery. His bigger polyps had been removed, and there were still many small polyps that cannot be removed at all. At that time, he was advised to quit smoking and drinking, and no one thought of a better way to reduce the occurrence of this polyp. That is to say, the surgery removes the polyps, but does not remove the source of the polyps. According to the theory of traditional Chinese medicine, this polyp is related to phlegm coagulation and blood stasis. After most of the polyps were removed, if he paid attention to it, quit smoking and drinking alcohol, kept a good mood, balanced food and exercise, got rid of phlegm and blood stasis by Chinese herb medicine, to make body more healthy. Is it possible to not get stomach cancer when he gets older?

I also think of polyps in the digestive tract, such as common colon polyps. Besides to regular colonoscopy by the doctor of Western medicine, early checked and early removal, for patients with a history of colon polyps, in addition to control emotion, regulate diet and strengthening exercise, it can take traditional herb medicines to resolve phlegm and turbidity and remove blood stasis according to their physical condition, so as to change the condition of their body  it make polyps graduate away or stop to going to developing towards cancer?

For general thought, fibroids, lipomas, and cysts are benign, it is fine when the kind lumps have been removed. Now I changed my opinion and thought it's a sign of some kind of change in body condition. It should be paid attention to. If you pay attention to adjust your emotion at this time, eat a balanced diet, strengthen exercise and rest, and use some traditional Chinese medicines as a supplement according to your physical condition. Is it possible to interrupt the future development of this process?

How can traditional Chinese medicine or diet therapy help to get rid of digestive tract polyp?  How do traditional Chinese medicine help to recover after the treatments of gastrointestinal tumours? I was pleasantly surprised by searching online.

He Ren (1921-2012) ( the one of national greatest master of Traditional Chinese Medicine(TCM) in China at first batch, President of Zhejiang College of Traditional Chinese Medicine), the first session of the famous traditional Chinese medicine lecture, He Ren: <Clinical research of gastrointestinal tumours and others tumours >(1) His experience share: Yiyiren (Coix Seed,Semen Coicis), 30-60g , make congee, as food for a daily breakfast, take all the coix seed and soup, once every the morning, insist on long-term use, the effect is very good. It is ineffective to use the soup and discard the Yiyiren. Chinese medicine believes that Yiyiren is both for food and medicine, and has the effect of eliminating polyps. Patients with gastrointestinal tumours after surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy, can be used as the food therapy and drug adjuvant therapy. Modern clinical pharmacological studies have also proved that Yiyiren has an anti-tumor effect.

年初得知小舅舅胃癌去世。我除了悲伤之外,更多的是心痛。他的胃癌发现时候已经是晚期了,所以过了大半年后,人就走掉了。人去不能复生,但要从中总结出教训,才能有进步,才能对得起逝去的亲人。我和父亲谈论他发生胃癌的诱因,可能与长期抽烟饮酒有关之外,另外,我记得在大约35年前,我小舅舅因为咽喉部和声带有多个息肉声音嘶哑。在我工作过的医院做手术后大大改善。大的息肉都摘掉了,还有很多小的息肉没有办法全部都去掉。当时建议他戒烟酒,也没有想过有更好的办法能够减少这个息肉的发生。 也就是说手术祛除了息肉,但是没有祛除长息肉的源头。按中医理论来讲,这个息肉就是和痰凝血瘀有关。如果当时在息肉切除以后,充分重视这个问题,除了戒烟酒外,调情志饮食运动外,如用一些中药祛痰浊化血瘀的治疗改善身体状况,而中断它的转变进程,会不会在年纪大了以后,就不会发生胃癌了呢?

Thinking about how to treat the health problem that does not take seriously normally

 Thinking about how to treat the health problem that does not take seriously normally


I had some issues during menopause, and Western medicine did not help. So I thought of Traditional Chinese medicine. It did help me and my family to deal with a lot of problems. So, I started to love Chinese medicine, and learned Chinese medicine in college, and then tried to take part in the provincial licence examination, passed the exam and got the licence. After I got the licence, I thought about it for a long time. Although I am not young, I still want to do something to help people to make them and me happy. I decided to share my knowledge and experience, and provide more health advice to the people they need.
