hey bunny i am being treated by a good TCM right now. It has only been a month she said that it will take about 3 months to cure but the spleen is a reble. She said that i have damp heat in my spleen and liver heat stagnation. My lips hopefuly will recover soon as am so swollen b/c of all the stuff the dr.s gave me and i work in a kitchen. Am soo swollen now i dont even want to leave my house i look horrible! So hopefuly the TCM will fix me and then my lips will heal on there own. the diet is no sweet, sour, or spicy foods. Only salt !
