Re: Traditional Chinese Medicine, It is working!

I will definitely talk to my acupuncturist about treating this. I have the disease now for more than 10 years. Operation did not really work well. All was back in 4 years. Thought about RT but the insurance does not cover it and the costs here in the Netherlands are 960 Euro per treatment. Acupuncture I used on other things with good result and my insurance is paying part of it. Fortunately I have a "university" for TCM close by.

Further decryption of handwritten prescription

Huana Qi [15g] is actually Huang Qi
Ti Xue Teng [15g] is most probably Ji Xue Teng [as there is no such thing as "ti xue teng"]

Full prescription would be:

Chai Hu-6g,
Bai Shao-12g,
Zhi Shi-6g,
Zhi Gan Hao-5g,
Dang Gui-6g,
Chuan Xiong-6g,
Huang Qi-15g,
Di Long-6g,
Mu Gua-9g,
Ji Xue Teng-15g,
Huai Niu Xi-12g,
Xu Duan-12g

Cost is about $10 per preparation. I'm willing to give it a try. At worst, it just won't do anything... But it all depends on how often and how long this preparation must be taken. If daily, it's $300 a month...

Re: Traditional Chinese Medicine, It is working!

Your are posting on a very old thread. There have been no recent updates on the individual patient's history nor reports from other patients that TCM did anything good to their Dupuytren's. Frankly, I would be surprised if it did. But give it a try and please share your results with us. It might well take several months until you see any results. if at all. 300 $ per month is a lot, especially over a longer period of time. Is there something on the list which is probably more helpful than other ingredients or do you think they need to be taken all together?

Re: Traditional Chinese Medicine, It is working!

I realize this is an old thread, but Tami1962 [who started it] is still active on this forum.

Doctor says my nodules are too thick for needle therapy, and he won't perform injections as the risks of damage to the hands is too great [according to him]. My fingers are somewhat stiff and a little crooked but not contracted; so I'm just waiting - hoping the progression slows down or halts. I am "desperate" [so to speak] and willing to try anything - within reason. Chinese Herbs have proven to be effective for other health issues. Why not give it a shot?

But I want to find out more details from the person who's tried it first.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi Ophelien.

NA is performed on contracted fingers, to cut the cord. I therefore don't understand your doctor's reference to the nodules, and why the procedure was considered when you don't have a contracture (although I don't know what difference you see to "crooked").

Re: Traditional Chinese Medicine, It is working!

Your finger stiffness might as well have other root causes. I guess you have tried already massaging, regular exercises and warm baths of your hands?

I totally agree with Stefan_K that NA and injections are for contracted fingers. Probably it would not help in your case anyway.
