Treating An Earth "Causative Factor" Patient Using Classical Five-Element Acupuncture
Classical Five Element as taught by Prof. J. R. Worsley is thought to have has its base in ancient acupuncture theory from the period of around 200 BC. It was through this era that the idea of the Elements and their corresponding character types is first thought to have surfaced. Over the last 50 years Worsley has combined this with ideas from other schools of acupuncture to create what is now known today as Classical Five Element.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medical Approaches for Fibromyalgia
The simple fact that plants are a major source of many drugs is not a surprise to most. Penicillin comes from mold, coumadin from sweet clover and aspirin from the bark of the white willow. Many of the most effective cancer drugs are also plant derived such as Vincristine (from periwinkle), Etoposide (from mayapple) and Taxol (from the pacific yew tree).

Fibromyalgia is a commonly encountered disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, stiffness, paresthesia, nonrestorative sleep, and easy fatigability, along with multiple tender points that are widely and symmetrically distributed. Fibromyalgia affects predominantly women in a ratio of 8:1 or 9:1 compared to men. This disorder is found in most countries, in most ethnic groups, and in all types of climates. The prevalence of fibromyalgia in the general population of a community in the United States using the 1990 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) classification criteria was reported to be 3.4 percent in women and 0.5 percent in men. Contrary to some previous reports, fibromyalgia was not found to be present mainly in young women, but rather was most prevalent in women aged 50 years and above. The prevalence increased with age, being 7.4 percent in women between the ages of 70 and 79.

"Candidiasis, a controversial disease, deserves recognition as it may perpetuate into epidemic proportions. The fact that some medical doctors brazenly discount its very existence coupled with a lack of current information allows unfortunate people suffering from Candidiasis to exist without an accurate diagnosis (particularly with reference to traditional western medicine), much less proper treatment. It is my intention to facilitate an awareness for health care practitioners and the public to the causes, symptoms, various testing and treatment protocol for Candidiasis."
