Basic Information:


Age: 23

Condition: ADD, Fatigue, Poor Concentration

Initial treatment date: 3/10/2006


May 8, 2006

Before I arrived at Dr. Liao's Eastern Healing Center, I suspected I suffered from ADD that resulted in my physical ailments or vice versa. The constant thoughts that flow through my mind became a great liability. I would have trouble maintaining focus in class, home work, daily tasks, and social interactions or specifically new social interactions. Aside from the lack of concentration, the physical ailments such as pain in the thoracic spine (T5), sternum and collar bone (the infamous "T"), shoulder joints, and neck via scalene muscle, became a distraction due to the numbness in parts of the body and the trapped nerves in result of the pain. The overall weakness made me feel tired and distracted. This affected my decision-making abilities and problem solving process tremendously. It also took a toll on my self-esteem, because of the lack of mental and physical performance generated a negative image in my mind of self worth.

Dr. Liao's prescribed an intense one month double treatment, a combination of qigong therapy, acupuncture, and acupressure, improved my physical condition and a bit of my learning disability. The first step was to take a reading test Dr. Liao conducted to measure the level of concentration and comprehension, and information attainment. I was to read a simple one page article from a random magazine with no time limit. The first test results were poor. I had enough trouble concentrating not to skip lines let alone remembering what I have read and the biggest factor was I had no interest at all even if I really willed myself to do the task.

The first visit was a tremendous success and the difference on how I felt before and after the first visit was by a large margin. The Qigong therapy when performed loosened the tension in the body especially the head. There was always a relaxing and peaceful feeling within minutes after when the therapy starts. The Qi usually starts in the frontal lobe of the brain and travels to the cerebrum then to the cerebellum and finally spreads throughout the body through what seems like a channel or pathway on the spine. The movement of the Qi is like waves of energy that passes through in a circular motion with set revolutions. The Qi also has a sensation of cold and warm depending on the area of the body. The importance of the temperature of Qi is significant, because it feels that the Qi can break up the pain or weakness in the body. This is the very action that creates the sense of relaxation and the feeling of increased circulation in the areas of pain which is a positive result. Usually after each appointment the pain somewhat dissipates and the mind then becomes clear and relaxed. After about two months time with Dr. Liao, the physical ailments have been reduced to a point where I almost forgot I had them before. The ADD is still a major issue, but in class concentration has improved slightly. My reading ability improved to a level where I can attain on average 50% of what I have read compared to the 30% from before. Unlike the manic and aimless reading behavior I had before, the mind felt like it can control the eye and memory functions of the brain with better with fluency and consistency.

However with these improvements there has been some regression in the process. To be clear the regression is not a result from the treatments and most likely due to my lifestyle habits and thoughts or moods. I still have useless thoughts that pop up in my mind that distract me a lot and the moments where my consciousness drifts off somewhere and I unknowingly am in a daydream state for sometime. I believe these conditions have not improved significantly because lifestyle habits such as sleeping late, internet suffering, and videogames and thoughts such as self doubt, constant thinking of past, and other hinder any chance of improvement for these distractions take a lot of energy to perform.
