A Painful Trip to the Chinese Doctor

So I lost my voice about 4 times on this last Asia mission trip. They brought me to a Chinese doctor in Taiwan he basically stuck little "swords" into my two thumbs, with an ancient Chinese kung fu technique (acupuncture) to squeeze out blood from my thumbs to loosen up my throat muscles? What are these Chinese docs thinkn? It hurt like H*#$ Praise God tho, my voice is back to normal now! :)

I went to that doc for stuffy nose, my pastor recommended me and many others to go. He told me his wife once had callus in her throat and was about to get a surgery, but then she went to Dr. Tong for about twice and took medicine and the callus disappeared :P miracle ha. So i took the medicine three months ago
and now my nose is healed~~So I guess it's Chinese kung fu + God's grace
= divine healing:D

Yikes! Needles are no fun. I'm so happy to read about your Asia travels! I met you at IHOP in Kansas City on New Year's Eve, and my life hasn't been the same every since - and that's a very very good thing! :)

HAHAHA "chinese kung fu technique"? hilarious! acupuncture (a.k.a. chinese kung fu technique) works wonders. im sorry you had to go through it though!

i HIGHLY recommend that you visit a voice therapist while you're in the states before you go on tours so that you can learn and practice better vocal techniques that may help. from what i'm hearing, the overuse of your vocal fold muscles resulted in swelling and tension. i'm telling you man- voice therapy!!!! i would give you free voice therapy if i were on the west coast (haha, put my practice to some good use) but maybe you can find christian voice therapists who'll hook you up(b/c it can get pretty expensive..). haha. seriously- VOICE THERAPY!!!!! it's a good investment for a lifetime of speaking. gotta invest in yo' voice, na mean?

and omg your other video is ridiculous. i can't believe you dissed out all our moms like that yo. and your pet-intercessor monkey who speaks in tongues is pretty cool. hA!

hmm....sorry man, but I don't think this "doctor" know how to do your physical exam coz' you are supposed to put out your tongue!! Actually I don't really recommend Chinese medicine in Taiwan because it is mixed with some weird local religion. May God protect your health!!
