Thanks Chad for your prompt reply.
To be frank, I was in the UK and was under treatment with a TCM practioner over there. I always asked him what herbs he is using to treat me but he said it was a personal formula and combination of herbs. Basically, the herbs were mixed and finely ground into small packets which I used to mix with hot water and drink. So, basically it was like a herbal tea of some sorts, a herbal tea of freshly ground herbs.
Since I have lost weight, I've been very particular about my diet. It's a good diet consisting of protein, carbs, no junk food. Haven't even had a drop of alcohol since the past two years.
Those tongue pictures are from two months ago. If you want I can send you recent pictures as well but my only question is should I send you pictures of my tongue like when I wake up early in the morning without having anything to eat or after I have had breakfast for example. As I'm typing now, my tongue still has the white coating at the back of it, which I believe is the area for the stomach and abdomen if I'm not wrong.
I would really be grateful to you if you could introduce me to anyone within the Maryland/Virginia area who would assist me and guide me in the right direction and not make me run around because as you're aware a lot of doctors just want to prescribe you herbs for the sake of it but there are only a few like yourself who don't want to fool around with their patients and cause them agony.
I'm here in the US for a limited time and will be travelling again, so I really want to meet up with a good and reputable TCM practioner in my area because the country I'm going to may not have any good TCM practioners at all.
