I'm currently treating a patient for chronic Ulcerative Colitis. He's very irritable, nervous, has diarrea 4 to 5 times a day , it's semi liquid. He has a burning sensation when going to the toilet. He has temporal head aches. He has great appetite, a big preference for cold drinks. That's all for the symptomes. All other parts of diagnosis checked without more signs.
Tongue: large, wet, pale
Pulse: deep, thin, slow
Most of the symptoms show signs of heat, and excess of yang. Why is it that it doesn't match with the pulse and tongue ?
My treatment was:
St 25, St 37, Kd 3, Ht 7, Pc 6, Liv 3, Sp 6
If I had followed the tongue, I would've added: St36, Cv 12, Cv 6, Ub 23 ( Spleen Qi Deficiency )
