to Deal With Long-Term Drug Side Effects
By Yin Lo, PhD
A couple of days ago, an old friend, a distinguished
professor at Princeton University, called me. He had heart surgery. He
was given plenty of drugs to take. One of them was, as he called it, "rat
poison." Its function was to dilute blood so it would not clog again.
He did not like the idea that he might have to take it for the rest of
his life. He was worried. Was there a way out? I hear more and more this
from relatives and friends who have some drug they have to take indefinitely.
Many people are worried about side effects from taking drugs for long
periods of time. What are we going to do about long-term side effects
of modern drugs? Chinese medicine emphasizes prevention such as eating
right and doing both internal and external exercises (qi gong). Acupuncture
is known to be free of long-term side effects. Is there any more? It
has been hypothesized that meridian system is made up of stable water
clusters and that drinking water with stable water clusters can repairing
meridians. Let me report a case of one of my patients. A male in his
40s came to see me four years ago. He had a bicycle accident 18 years
previously, which still caused him problems. He also had more serious
problems in the past. He had cancer and radiation therapy. His thyroid
was damaged from radiation treatment and needed hormone supplement. If
he did not have this hormone supplement, he felt weak and had no energy
to work. He didn’t want to take the hormone supplement forever, but he
had no choice. His recovery was slow. We can classify his recovery into
three stages: Infrared imagessome improvement. On 5/12/05, he had a healing
session with external qi.
Fig. 1A and 1B First stageThe infrared images were
taken before and after the session. It was clear that there was some improvement
on the neck and shoulder region. The maximum temperature in that region dropped
slightly. Three month later his general health improved. Infrared images, as
seen in Fig. 2, showed significant improvement. The maximum temperature in
the neck and shoulder region dropped 0.83C from the healing session of external
qi. He reported that he only needed to take half the dosage of thyroid hormone
supplement as prescribed by the doctor.

Infrared images on 5/12/05. The maximum temperature
on the left side of the neck and shoulder region is 36.18C, and that of the
right side 36.48C, with a difference of maximum temperature between left-right
side to be 0.3C. After healing with external qi, the maximum temperature on
the left side of the neck and shoulder region is 35.88C, and that on the right
side is 36.12C, with a left-right difference in maximum temperature becomes
0.24C. Fig 2. Infrared images on 8/8/2005. The maximum temperature on the left
side of the neck and shoulder region was 37.22C, and 38C on the right side,
with a difference if maximum temperature of 0.78C. After healing with external
qi, the maximum temperature on the left side of the neck and shoulder region
was 36.3C, and 37.13C in the right side, with a difference in maximum temperature
3 Second stage – 2005 to 2008.
The subject practiced qi gong, ate a healthy
diet, and led a healthy lifestyle. His health entered into a relative stable
state, as shown in Fig 3. The degree of healthiness may be measured by the
asymmetry in the thermal pattern between the left and right sides of the neck,
and shoulder region. It is measured by the difference in maximum temperatures
of the left and right region. His maximum temperature difference was 0.7C.
Fig 3. Infrared images taken on 12/30/08. The maximum temperature on the left
side of the neck and shoulder region was 35.2C, and 35.9C on the right side.
4 Third stage – more recovery
The patient started to regularly drink meridian
water at the end of 2008. There was more improvement in his thyroid. He did
not need to take the hormone supplement. The maximum temperature difference
of the left-right sides of his neck and shoulder region dropped to 0.4C, as
shown in Fig 4. This difference dropped further to 0.1C, as shown in Fig 5.
He felt that his thyroid had fully recovered from the radiation damage done
many years ago. Even after he stopped taking thyroid hormone supplements, he
kept on drinking the meridian water. He said he felt more and more energetic.

5 recovery Infrared images taken on
4/21/09. The maximum temperature on the left side of the neck and shoulder
region is 32.7C, and 33.1C on the right side, with a maximum temperature
difference of left-right to be 0.4C. Fig 5. Infrared images taken on 6/25/09.
The maximum temperature on the left side of the neck and shoulder region
is 31.5C, and 31.6C on the right side, with a maximum temperature difference
of left-right to be 0.1C. It is clear that one case history says very little
what this water can do for other people in the long run. We, therefore, would
like to enlist the help of any interested medical practitioner to do this
kind of experiment. We are happy to supply you with samples of the special
Sample Thermograph Images (We are working on statistically
however, we think your interest might be peaked by this before and after sample
