Yes, I can see where Tai Chi would have potential the rethinking/balance problem for some of us. Thank you for that information.
My thoughts for those of you thinking of a "holistic" approach for a probem is, to see a well-researched/good holistic doctor. (MD) It will cost you monies and especially for a really good one. If you are buying something which is supposed to help with the AN symptoms, please clear it with your regular doctor and or the AN doctors you have seen or are seeing. Again, I got the OK that I can take holistic meds about a half year AFTER my CK. I'm awaiting my CK dates.
There is a well-known person here in the mountains at New Leaf Market in Felton, CA. He is *just* an person who is advising on "say," Eastern approach. I won't post his name but, his initials are R.G. He is a busy man but, will take your phone call if you can't make it in person the first time. If you are within a reasonable driving distance "over-the-hill" from Stanford (Los Altos, CA.) and call this person first, you can see when he will be in to talk with you. He is currently off on Wed. and Thurs., I believe. Again, this person is not an MD. I did benefit with my experience talking with Richard G. and my discussion with a holistic MD. They were both on the same track BUT, it was the holistic Western medicine doctor that told me honestly that he could not help me avoid the CK. I appreciated his honesty! The Eastern way might lead you to believe that you could avoid the drastic measures. I my case not so as, my AN is so very large at this point.
Yes, I still want to know what is and or will be, permenant damage with AN. I will speak with Richard G. myself after my rad-tx to see what if anything I can take to improve balance. I posted earlier in this thread about what I was taking. It doesn't hurt to improve cell growth with some of the right added helpers.
Good luck and get more than one opinion in any case!
Regards and I hope this helps,
