Addiction Eased By Combination Of Traditional Chinese & Western Medicine Say Sharon Kleyne & Dr. Anita Chen Marshall

Beware Sugar & Other Addictive Ingredients Kleyne and Marshall Agree. Kleyne & Marshall Call for More Water and Nutrition Education for Doctors.

Dr. Anita Chen Marshall holds a dual doctorate in Pharmacy and Oriental Medicine works hard to make sure that her patients “are well versed about water. If they are not,” says Marshall, “I quickly get them up to speed!” Marshall is dedicated to working with patients because there are a lot of pollutants in the foods we eat, and clean water can help flush them out of the body.

Marshall is also on the warpath against sugar and glucose consumption. Marshall often shares a recent Youtube video of a study done in Ireland in which a typical family consumes 40 times the recommended daily sugar intake of 6 teaspoons a day. “One can of coke contains 10 teaspoons of sugar,” Marshall points out. This, of course, can lead to addictive behavior.

Marshall’s health colleague, Sharon Kleyne, host of the internationally syndicated radio program, The Sharon Kleyne Hour Water Life Science®/Nature’s Pharma®, The Power of Water® & Your Health sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist® on VoiceAmerica and World Talk Radio produced by Rose Hong, founder and director of Global Dragon TV in Washington, D.C., believes that research will eventually prove that all addiction is rooted in too little water and too much sugar and glucose. “Water saves lives, our planet and our breath of life,” says Kleyne. “Water is also the key to stopping addiction.”

When asked by Kleyne to describe the difference between Oriental and western medicine, Marshall complies. “Western medicine,” says Marshall, “is more compartmentalized. It’s specialized. Oriental medicine treats the whole body as an integrated system—a kind of one-stop treatment place.” Even so, Marshall refers patients to western doctors for full physicals and blood tests, which establish a base from which to determine diagnosis and treatment.

In much of the world, herbal supplements are available over the counter. Because they are organic, many people think of them as safe. Yet, Kleyne and Marshall urge caution, agreeing that combinations of herbs and prescribed medications can lead to serious health consequences. As an example, Marshall brought up St. John’s Wort. Many take this herb for depression, but it can be very dangerous if you are already taking a prescribed anti-depressant. St. John’s Wort increases liver enzymes and encourages the body to metabolize other drugs faster. This can lead to depletions that can cause health complications.

Kleyne and Marshall would like the general public and doctors to become better educated about herbs and how they affect health. Such knowledge can literally save lives. Marshall also shares the Oriental medicine tip of avoiding drinking ice water when eating a meal. “Think of washing a pan after cooking,” Marshall suggests. “The pan is greasy and it takes hot water to cut through the grease. If the water is cold, the grease congeals. The same thing happens in your body after eating. Drink room temperature water with meals.”
