    Hi, new to this- but think this is a wonderful arena for sharing.
    I'm a pod who integrates post grad study in Traditional Chinese Medicine with podiatry. It's a weird but wonderful combination.
    Looking forward to sharing some alternative treatments I use and work well with you soon.

    Hi Silver Shadow,

    :welcome: to Podiatry Arena.

    May I ask which Chinese remedies you have had particular success with & what outcomes you have noted?

    Many thanks & kind regards,

    Hey Mandy,

    I love the closing line "suffering a fondness for odd things".
    I have used an oinment called "thuja" for years on HPV's. It can be applied externally and also taken internally. If used in conjunction with an immune tonic- warts seem to resolve with less pain and scarring. It seems to take longer than conventional methods, but given that it is not painful and non scarring it is a great option for kids. I remember when I was a kid, my G.P. burnt my warts out- only to have them return again. I now have a mass of scarring, and a painful area on the ball of my foot which accumulates HK. Just a taste of what I have used. More will be coming if your interested,

    Welcome AnneMarie, I notice that you have been a member since 2007. Great that you have taken the next step. ;--))
    Thuja has been discussed as a remedy amongst Podiatrist for at least the 30 years that I have been around.
    Where did you do your Post Grad studies? How long were they for? I'm always interested to know what is out there.
    Interesting that one of the ifrst positions I had was in a Diabetic Clinic nealry 30 years ago in a Public Hospital and my Boss also practiced reflexology as well.
    Alternave medicines, acupuncture, maniupulation, prolotherapy are a few other additions to some skill sets.

    Look forward to more gems in the future.
