Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease characterized by bronchial hyper-responsiveness, increased mucus production, narrowing of airways, and airway remodeling. Clinic symptoms include repeated episodes of cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, chest tightness, and chest pain. Some acute and severe cases can be life-threaten.
Ireland has the 4th highest prevalence of asthma worldwide. One in eight of the population of Irish people has been affected by asthma according to HSE. Asthma is most common respiratory condition in Ireland and the commonest chronic disease in childhood. Approximately 470,000 Irish people have suffered from asthma. HSE statistic shows over 5,000 admissions per year with principal diagnosis of asthma and more than 22,000 admissions per year with secondary diagnosis of asthma in Ireland.
The main causes of asthma are not fully understood. The risk factors for asthma are the following triggers including indoor allergens for example household dust mites in bedding, carpets and plush furniture, pollution and pet dander; outdoor allergens such as the pollen and mold; tobacco smoke; chemical irritants in the workplace. Other triggers may include extreme emotions such as anger or fear, cold air, and physical exercise. In some people, asthma may even be induced by certain medications, such as aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and ß-blockers used for the treatment of high blood pressure, heart disease, and migraine.
In traditional Chinese medicine, the cause of asthma may relate to external environment factors such as cold and dampness, especially Irish cold and damp weather. Spring and winter are the most likely seasons for asthma in Ireland. Internal causes my related to lung qi deficient, spleen and kidney qi deficient etc. Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine have great benefits in preventing and treating asthma for over thousand years. Zhang zhongjing (张仲景) is one of the famous physicians in Chinese medicine. He has developed and established Chinese medicine theory and formula for treatment of asthma, which is still effective and widely used by modern Chinese physicians.
"I was suffered from depression, on anti-depressants, adjusting to an under-active thyroid, all whilst unsuccessfully trying for a baby for two full years. I contacted Qiong Di and five months later I was pregnant with a beautiful little baby girl. Qiong Di not only helped us to get pregnant, but she also brought me a stronger sense of health and well-being in general. Thank you, thank you Qiong Di, and I wish all the best to your wonderful practice!"
"As I got older, I also found it more difficult each time to keep to the regimen of a diet. I decided that I needed to try something different, so I turned to acupuncture. Since then, I have lost nearly 35 pounds and I feel absolutely great! The weight loss was over 3 months during which time I did not experience that light-headed feeling or even the dreaded hunger pangs! The inches just melted away from my waist and I have gone from a size 40+ inch waist to a 34. This is all due to Qiong Di’s effective weight loss programme."
"I first noticed I had TMJ when I was 20 years old in 1997, and over the years the condition got worse causing me to have great pain and discomfort in my jaw muscles. I tried everything including a specially made TML gum shield, osteopath treatments, many kinds of pain killers, and even practiced special jaw exercises. Then, after just one session with Qiong Di I knew that I had found the solution to my problem. Since this time I have been living pain free! So I would highly recommend the TUNG-CHI TCH Centre to anyone who is looking for an alternative treatment."
