Bali Belly - My experience with this as an Acupuncturist and Chinese Herblist

Posted on 17 October, 2019 at 18:55

It all started in Bali, one hot steamy afternoon.  I was doubled over with extreme stomach cramps and then crippled with intense muscle cramps in my arms and shoulders.  I wasn't sure how this happened as I was ultra careul to stay away from consuming water, and from consuming anything from cheap unreputable places.

An hour after the stomach cramps and muscle spasms started I was hit with extreme nausea, and then my first vomiting experience.  After what felt like passing my entire digestive system through my mouth, I layed on the cold floor and battled with a high fever.  After a short time passed I got up; determined to get rid of this nausea and relieve the fever I applied acupuncture to Neiguan-Pericardium six; Quchi-Colon 11; Hegu-Colon 4; and Fenglong-Stomach 40.  This prescription was designed to relieve nausea and fever, but not stop vomiting and diarrhoea; I knew i had contracted a parasite of some kind so it was important to allow the body to expel it fully.   

The prescription had reduced nausea and relieved fever; but I was still expereincing short bursts of chills, and the occasional wave of nausea.  The next 24 hours I experienced vomiting and diarrhoea, and what's worse I had to fly back to Sydney in this time.  MIdday the next day we had to check out of our hotel; this was 18 hours into my illness, and I new that I could not risk any incidents at the airport or on the plane.  I unfortunately had to take medication to stop diarrhoea (Immodium), which I did not want to do as I wasn't sure the parasite was fully out of my system.  So, with the acupuncture controlling nausea and fever; and the immodium controlling symptoms, I was ready to travel.

The trip home was nothing short of hell with extreme abdominal pains, and muscle cramps; I could tell my body did not like having to suppress the natural function of expelling the parasite.  I arrived in Sydney and got home; by this time i was extremely sick and slightly jaundiced.  I passed out on the couch and slept for 8 hours.  When I awoke I went straight to my clinic and got myself a herbal formula that had been used for hundreds of years by the Chinese to kill parasaites and control outbreaks.  I used A formula named Ge Gen Qin Lian Tang.  This formula is extremely bitter and looks rather disgusting, but I knew hat once I consumed Ge Gen Qin Lian Tang it would eviscerate the parasite.  

I gave myself some more acupuncture: Neiguan-Pericardium six; Quchi-Colon 11; Hegu-Colon 4; and Fenglong-Stomach 40; Tianshu Stomach 25,; Zhongwan Ren 12.  I took the formula Ge Gen Qin Lian Tang for 10 days and lived on a simple diet of congee made from high quality chicken bone broth.  

A day after the formula started, and the extra acupuncture sessions, I started to feel much better.  However; It wasn't until 10 days later that I Would be able to consume a normal diet and resume my passion of CrossFit.  In this time I lost 5kg's.  If it wasn't for the Chinese herbs, the acupuncture, and the diet of the congee; I feel I would have lost a lot more weight and may have been hospitalised.
