Just treated a lovely lady who came in for facial acupuncture.
The intake process highlighted that she has bone cancer, malignant. There is no pain.
Her cancer markers in her blood are abnormally high (higher than when she was diagnosed initially with ovarian cancer about 20 years ago - treated with surgery and chemo).
I've done a bit of research and they say the root is Yang Xu and the branch is either Phlegm, Qi Stagnation, Xue Stasis or Cold.
I can definately diagnose Xue Stasis (menstural history, varicose veins) and Qi Stagnation (depression, tense, tight shoulders, irritable, frustrated) leading to heat (constipation dry, migraines, red eyes), with some underlying Yang Xu (nocturia, feels the cold, tired) but she looks more Yin Xu (underweight, arvo sweating) so am thinking there's both.
I'm going to refer her to the best chinese herbalist in my city for some herbs. Just wanting to know if I should still try to move Xue in the Uterus considering she's had an almost complete historectomy and has no pain there. Or move blood more systemically considering the bone cancer might be spreading.
