Treating Syringomyelia (SM) With
Herbal Thearpy Amyotrophy Convalesence Pill
1. The GeneralSyringomyelia is a rare condition in which long, fluid filled spaces are present in the central gray matter of the spinal cord. We call this space as syrin which expands and elongates over time, destroying the center of the spinal cord. Since the spinal cord connects the brain to nerves in the extremities, this damage results in pain, weakness, and stiffness in the back, shoulders, arms, or legs.
One way to think of syringomyelia is if you were to take a hot dog and inject water into the center. This forms an abnormal cavity within the structure of the spinal cord, causes pressure and disrupts the normal function of the nerves that travel from that area of the cord.

2. The Main Symptoms
Many of the symptoms of syringomyelia may be vague at beginning. However, symptoms can be progressive over a long period of time. Some people experience symptoms that occur suddenly, causing them to think they may have had a stroke.
Pain is one of the most common symptoms persons may experience. People may complain of pain in the arm, hand or leg. Some people report a burning type of pain around the ribs or in the neck or back. Often, the pain is present for months to years before a proper diagnosis is made. Pain on one side is more commonly reported than bilateral pain. Many persons report a tingling sensation or numbness in the arm, chest, or back, in a leg or foot. If left unchecked, some people will report burning or injuring themselves without knowing it due to the numbness in an extremity..
Some people will report weakness in the hand or arm, or even in the leg or foot. Weakness is generally progressive over time and many people will say they have become clumsy with their hand and drop objects. Over time, some persons will develop atrophy (or muscle wasting). Infrequently, a person will become suddenly weak on one side of the body.
Weakness of the lower extremity may cause problems with walking, called ataxia. This is generally described as an unusual gait or dragging of one leg. Some people will stagger and report frequent falling due to the weakness of a limb.
Other symptoms may include shortness of breath, chest tightness, episodic fast heart rate, blood pressure changes, fatigue. SM may also adversely affect sweating, sexual function and bladder and bowel control.

5. Combination Treatment: Qigong Practice
Qigong, an ancient science and art of health, is a traditional form of Chinese energy excise and healing art for the body, mind, and spirit. Qigong is for establishing balance in and for helping to heal people who are struggling with chronic degenerative conditions such as paralysis, cancer, asthma, cardiovascular and so on.
People will ask us what the mechanism of qigong is. Generally speaking, like in a rice field, western medicine always have the trend of using all their means to kill the weeds. But in the meantime the rice shoots incur damage, more or less. Most patients know what the results is when they receive radiotherapy and chemotherapy. But for qigong practice, at beginning it will directly strengthen patients immune system as well as activate inner energy system. In a word, it seeks to harmonize the relationship of all internal organs rahter than distinguish which is friend and which is enemy. How to achieve such aim, you may ask? For a tree, at the very beginning there is no division of which is normal and which is abnormal for it stays at initiative stage of the very root. But later different branches develop into various forms, and good, bad, long, short, etc. come into being. By adopting special means we can reverse the process of growth and take the course of sailing against the life current to return back to the very beginning. Once we reach that state there should be no any "branches" possibly existing to wield effects upon our physical existence. Qigong is just the method of how to take the reversing course for the health well being, physically and mentally.
As like to let the rice shoots get stronger and stronger, the weeds will have less and less effects upon the rice shoots. As the process continues, it is sure someday the weeds will no longer have effect upon the rice shoots. Later the time will come of the rice shoots overpowering weeds. If patients can properly proceed with the practice, qigong can bring them much more than they could expect, especially the serene happiness common people could never have chance to experience throughout their life time. Qigong is the study of practice rather than just a theory. Here we like to offer free Qigong course to all patients.
