Excuse me for a little to long of a story, but to get a better understanding of my case I’ll give some description so you can see the sequence of my issues.
First - I was 15,16 years old, I could not tolerate alcohol ( I puked, while my peers did ok), then I overcame puking more or less, I really don’t know the explanation in TCM for it, something with the liver I guess
Secondly, at 18,19 I continued abusing alcohol while adding some recreational drugs, in matter of year I developed ED, in TCM I believe it should be called damp spleen.
Third, at 23 years of age, while still abusing alcohol and recreational drugs, I lost my good sleep, it became shallow, got digestive issues, a tendency for getting cold extremities, low energy, cloudy thinking, frequent urination. - kidney yang deficiency and overall dampness. Stomach and spleen area of my tongue has a thick coating and I have bumps on the back of my tongue - which I believe are Candida yeast overgrowth.
The conventional docs are useless and I’ve been self healing with food for 3 years now as I didn’t know where to go, whom to reach until when I found TCM and went abroad and visited a good TCM internal medicine specialist he made a herbal combination which totally had great results on me (my tongue cleared out in a matter of days(the bumps on the back tongue did not reside totally though), energy was high, erection was great)
A week later I was celebrating birthday where I drank half bottle red wine and puffed some marihuana - and all the symptoms came back, it was devastating.
Right now I’ve been visiting my TCM doc abroad and the formulas don’t have much effect (although they have been altered to some point)
Wanted to have your opinion on this? How do you see it? Has the yeast adapted? Maybe I should take a break without any TCM herbal preparations for some time? What is the underlying symptom that should be addressed first?
P.S. I’ve been doing accupuncture courses frequently, I eat mainly hearty vegetable soups, some meat, eggs, all food organic, and I totally won’t drink or smoke anything until I get totally healthy.
