treatment:
After taking my pulse,chinese-style, doctor wrote out a prescription. I took the prescription to the dispensery and was told to return the next day with a large bag.

Asking as a registered nurse; WHAT THE HECK DOES YOUR PULSE HAVE TO DO WITH YOUR FREQUENT URINATION?? That right there is a HUGE red flag the size of the great wall of China, as to the implausibility of the treatment. I DOCTOR would do a full physical, and pay extra attention the affected system which is NOT the ‘pulse’ and it doesn’t matter HOW in the heck he ‘took’ it!

And you have to have the medical and pharaceutical expertise to know what the immediate and long term effects of each of those ingredients separately and together may have.

I found that a bit amusing myself asanta. I just assumed the doctor was taking the pulse of his Life Force rather than the mundane pulse that you and i often use which is created by the beating heart and should be more or less the same no matter where or how you take it on the body.
