Firstly Thanks to AndyJ's sharing. Several years ago I am looking for the diet to control the pain of the AS. AndyJ’s success give me great inspiration and couragement, especially in the pamphlet “A Guide to Heath” most parts of the products which build the immune system belongs to Chinese Herbs medicine. I suddenly understand that Chinese herbal medicine maybe is more effective than the Western medicine. For most the Chinese medicine are herb but not all. So I try to read some Chinese traditional medicine books in which many patients recovered. So I got more confidence.(Even in china most AS patient choose western medicine method to cure AS. Nowadays talented Chinese medicine doctor become lesser and lesser, even in the Chinese traditional medicine school most students study the western medicine. )
I try to copy the prescription in the book to control the pain which every ASer have ever experienced. But the result is not so ideal, but luckily the pain is under control without Etanercept etc and any western medicine. Cheirapsis with the acupoint is very important which is effective the same with the herb medicine. In the Chinese medicine’s view the acupoint is medicine in the body which is the key of the immune system which balance the operation of the human body.
I recommend the chinsese acutpoint books(ahtho Zhou Erjin), maybe effects.

So are you suggesting that modern western medication works better than the traditional Chinese?

The problem is that maybe the most is not always right.The western medicine is based huge experiments and statics data which seems looks like more "strict" and "beautiful".

Yes, while I was living in China I asked Chinese doctors in Western hospitals for treatment using TCM and they mostly laughed. Some did prescribe herbs alongside Western medicine and some of the TCM is not so subtle; it can interact with foods.

I have looked into a Chinese herb patent and studied the components offered in their newly branded pills. I have located most the ingredients within their proprietary pills. My next desire is to create the same pill of Chinese herbs and see if they work more effectively than Western medicine.

It would be hard to tell if they worked or did not work for you. I would think you need to stick with it for a reasonable length of time and you would need to establish a measurement basis for progress, improvement or progression into the positive. Did you have a way of measuring your success with the choices?

Some time back during my search for alternatives, I came across Bushen Qiangdu Zhilv decoction (Chinese medicine) for the treatment of AS. I never tried it since I could not get that. Any idea on this medicine's efficacy.
