The Dying Child
A nine year-old boy was suffering from a wasting condition that no medication seemed to help. The doctors failed at everything they attempted. Finally, the head doctor on the team reluctantly told Johnny's father there was nothing more they could do except keep him comfortable. It was nearing his birthday, and his parents requested that they be allowed to take him out of the hospital to McDonald's for a treat. Permission was granted. Too weak to stand, Johnny had to be wheeled to the car. After the party, the father stopped at Dr. Amaro's office and told him the story. Dr. Amaro looked at the child and said he was sorry, but there was nothing he could do. The disappointment was palpable; his son was going to die.
Then an inspiration came in the form of a memory from classical Chinese medical literature, reminding him of the Tsing Well points. These points promote total integration of blood, lymph, and chi. With a yellow magic marker, Dr. Amaro colored all the Tsing Well points on the fingertips and toe tips that had to be stimulated every four hours. Within a week, the child was stronger and his bloodwork was better. Needless to say, his doctor was amazed, and that nine-year-old boy went on to regain his health. Dr. Amaro received an invitation to his high-school graduation. Don't underestimate the power of the Tsing Well points!
