“Next one.” Fang Qiu sat back at the consultation desk and shouted.
The third patient came in.
After using the Four Methods to Diagnose a Disease, Fang Qiu also began to use acupuncture to treat the patient.
The PD pushed the sickbed to the wall quietly. He didn’t disturb Fang Qiu seeing the patient. Meanwhile, he was also nervously looking at this patient who suffered from acute appendicitis.
Just now, he did let out a sigh of relief.
Nothing unexpected happened to the patient and his pain was relieved a little, but that didn’t mean there was no pain. The patient lying on the bed still groaned from time to time.
That was why the PD kept watching the patient nervously the entire time.
He observed that the patient’s complexion gradually became better, and the sound of groaning became less and less. Finally, it completely disappeared and the patient didn’t look as painful as he was before. Only then did the PD completely rest assured.
The PD was surprised and thought to himself. “I didn’t expect that acupuncture in Chinese Medicine can also give first aid.”
After seeing the third patient and seeing the patient off, Fang Qiu walked to the side of the sickbed.
Fang Qiu looked at the patient and asked, “How is it? Do you feel better?”
“It doesn’t hurt anymore.” The patient nodded immediately and said, “Dr. Xiao Fang, you are really a magical doctor.”
“I am not a magical doctor, just a doctor of Chinese Medicine.” Fang Qiu smiled and began to take out the needles for the patient.
After he finished, he said, “This is your prescription.”
Fang Qiu then wrote another prescription and added, “Although your acute appendicitis is cured, you still suffer from gastroenteritis. If you don’t take care, it will easily cause appendicitis again. So when you go back, you need to coordinate. Take the medicine according to this prescription. I have written down the medicine-decocting method and dosage for you.”
“Okay, thank you, Dr. Xiao Fang.”
The patient took over the prescription and said, “You can go ahead and treat others. I’ll come back later to get the medicine.”
“All right.” Fang Qiu nodded.
The man thanked him again and left with the prescription.
Fang Qiu returned to the consultation desk and sat down. “Next one.”
The PD waiting at the door immediately let the next patient enter the clinic.
Fang Qiu looked up.
It was a young man in his twenties.
This young man looked quite normal, but his gait was a bit strange and his face was a bit pale.
“Please have a seat.” When the patient came to the consultation desk, Fang Qiu stretched out his hand and motioned to him.
The patient asked, “Dr. Xiao Fang, can I not sit?”
Fang Qiu was dumbfounded. “Hmm?”
The patient said, “My hemorrhoids hurt so much that I can’t sit at all. I was going to have an operation in the county hospital, but when I heard that you came back, I hurried to see you.”
Although his voice was low, the PD still heard what he said when he guarded at the door.
“How to treat it?” He turned around curiously and looked at the patient and Fang Qiu, murmuring to himself, “You can only cut it if you have this. It seems that only doctors of Western Medicine can do that. Hemorrhoids mean an organic disease. It turns to a bulge in the body. What can we do if we don’t cut it?”
In the midst of his confusion, the PD took a look at the people outside the door and found that the crowd was lining up consciously. He immediately stopped guarding the door and went directly behind Fang Qiu. In the place where the camera could not capture, he asked, “This can’t be removed unless using the Western Medicine method to cut it directly. Can Chinese Medicine cure it without operation? What method can you use?”
Fang Qiu replied directly, “Use the fire needle!”
The PD asked, “Ah? You’re going to use a needle to break it?”
Fang Qiu was suddenly speechless.
As soon as he thought of the image that the PD described, he couldn’t help but feel sick.
He rolled his eyes at him and said, “I’m going to put the needle on his mouth!”
Upon hearing that, the PD was stunned.
“Does he want to put the needle on the mouth to cure hemorrhoids?
“How is this possible?”
Obviously, he thought Fang Qiu was joking with him.
When he was about to ask more questions, he found that Fang Qiu had taken action and was ready to start the treatment. Therefore, he stopped talking and watched silently.
But the next moment, he was dumbfounded.
When Fang Qiu said that he wanted to stick the needle to the mouth, he really meant it.
Fang Qiu first took out the silver needles, walked to the front of the patient, and said, ” Prop up your upper lip. Let me have a look.”
The patient tried so hard, but he couldn’t do it.
Helplessly, Fang Qiu could only put on the sterilize gloves to help him. He pulled up the patient’s upper lip and then looked at it carefully.
There was indeed a sesame-sized follicle in the Yinjiao acupoint which was in the middle of the patient’s two front teeth.
This was a symptom that most of the patients who suffered from hemorrhoids would have.
After he confirmed the position, Fang Qiu found a soft cushion, put it on the chair, and said, “Sit down.”
The patient had to sit down.
“Raise your head and look at the ceiling.” While speaking, Fang Qiu began to burn the needle with fire. He kept burning the silver needle until it became white and bright. Then he quickly used the needle to poke the patient’s follicle in the Yinjiao acupoint.
He stopped when he reached the acupoint.
The moment he stuck the needle in, a flow of internal Qi was transferred in the patient’s body.
The reason why he used the needle to stick into the patient’s mouth was that most of the patients who suffered from hemorrhoids had a follicle in the Yinjiao acupoint. He used the fire needle because it could get to the Governing Vessel through the Yinjiao acupoint. According to the principle that the place that meridians passed through demanded priority, he could cut the source by using this treatment.
With the support of internal Qi, the effect of the fire needle would obviously be better.
Soon, Fang Qiu finished treating the fourth patient.
Fang Qiu continued to see patients quickly.
Half an hour passed.
He had seen ten patients.
On average, each person only took him three minutes. He was really fast.
The most important thing was that Fang Qiu used acupuncture to treat all of them.
Acupuncture was time-consuming, but with the help of internal Qi, he saved so much time. In addition, he would continue to see the next patient while leaving the needles in the last patient. And then he would take out the needles one by one, so Fang Qiu’s treatment speed naturally increased a lot.
Soon, he was seeing the sixteenth patient.
It was a middle-aged man in his fifties.
“Sir, what ails you?” Fang Qiu asked as the patient sat down.
The patient said, “I often feel dizzy and headache and tinnitus. I also constantly lose my temper.”
“Oh?” After careful observation, Fang Qiu found that the patient’s face was red, and his saliva was very little. Besides, he almost had no movement of swallowing, and he even had the habit of spitting saliva.
Fang Qiu asked, “Do you feel dry throat with a bitter taste?”
The patient nodded and answered, “Yes, I do.”
Fang Qiu asked again, “You said that you don’t have a good temper. Is it easy for you to get angry, move restlessly, have less sleep, and dream a lot?”
“Yes, yes, yes, that’s exactly how I feel.”
The patient said, “I’ve suffered from hypertension for several years. Dr. Xiao Fang, you are a magical doctor. Please help me.”
Upon hearing that, Fang Qiu didn’t make any movement. However, the PD who stood behind Fang Qiu and outside the camera all the time was immediately nervous.
The PD said in a low voice, “Hypertension is a chronic disease, and it can’t be cured at all. Even Western Medicine can only use medicine to control it.”
“Please open your mouth and let me see.” Fang Qiu was still using the Four Methods to Diagnose a Disease.
The patient opened his mouth and Fang Qiu found that his tongue was red and its coating was yellow.
“Let me feel your pulse again.” Fang Qiu reached out to feel his pulse.
Eventually, he came to the conclusion that the patient’s pulse was strong, so he was suffering from an overwhelming liver fire hypertension.
After the diagnosis, Fang Qiu hesitated for a moment and said, “Sir, although I can help you quickly lower the blood pressure now, it can’t be maintained for a long time. If you want to cure this disease, we need more time to use other methods. Except for living habits, there were other methods. But I don’t have much time to help you do it now.
“I’ll teach you a method, and you can do it yourself. I believe it won’t take long to cure it.”
The patient had thought that the disease could not be cured.
He simply wanted to see if there was a method that was better than Western Medicine without side effects, but he hadn’t expected that Fang Qiu said it could be cured, which made him a little surprised.
The patient asked, “Really? Can I cure it on my own?”
Fang Qiu said with a smile, “As long as you learn it and insist on doing it, you can cure it.”
The patient said happily, “Okay, please teach me. It will be great if it can really be cured.”
“It’s a very simple method.”
Fang Qiu said, “It’s the navel therapy in traditional Chinese Medicine.”
“Oh?” The patient nodded.
“You need to buy some Aconites and Radix Rehmanniae. Take the right proportion of these two herbs and mix them with egg white. Put them on your navel, cover them with gauze, and fix them with tape.
“You have to use this method before going to bed. You can change it once a day. Every 15 days will be a course of treatment. In general, it will take effect in 3 to 5 days.”
Fang Qiu was writing as he spoke.
After writing the prescription, he handed it to the patient and reminded him, “This is only effective for patients with high blood pressure like yours. Don’t give it to other patients with high blood pressure blindly. The types of hypertension are different. The medicines they need are also different. If you give it to other patients who are not suitable to use it, it may cause an adverse effect or it won’t have any effect at all.”
“All right.” The patient nodded again and again, but there was lingering fear inside him.
He also wanted to teach others this method. After all, this was a treatment that Dr. Xiao Fang personally made for him. How awesome it would be! But when he heard Fang Qiu’s words, he immediately discarded this idea. If something bad really happened, he could not afford it.
He then took the prescription.
“Thank you, Dr. Xiao Fang. I’ll try it tonight.” The patient thanked Fang Qiu and left.
Fang Qiu continued to see the patients.
After working for more than an hour, he had seen over 20 patients, but he didn’t even have time to drink a sip of water.
Seeing that Fang Qiu was too occupied, the PD tried to persuade him. “Why don’t we take a break?”
“There’s no need.” Fang Qiu shook his head and continued to see patients.
But at this time, a quarrel broke out all of a sudden outside the clinic.
Fang Qiu was confused. “What’s going on? Why are they arguing?”
“I’ll go and have a look,” the PD responded and quickly went out to have a look.
A moment later, he came back.
Fang Qiu asked, “What’s going on?”
“It’s the staff of our show quarreling with the patients who are queuing up.”
The PD smiled wryly. “The staff made statistics on everyone’s condition and tried to persuade those who were not sick to leave. You can’t see them all because there are too many people here. The reason why they kept arguing was that someone didn’t want to leave. They even said that the staff had no right to ask them to leave. They said that everyone was equal and they just didn’t want to leave. The staff tried to persuade them, but they failed. That’s why they started to quarrel.”
As he heard that, Fang Qiu was also very helpless.
He also understood that people wanted him to treat them. But the show’s staff didn’t do anything wrong. He really couldn’t see so many patients.
“I’ll go and have a look.” Fang Qiu stood up and walked out. The PD tried to stop him, but he failed.
