Original Case by: Ye Tian-Shi (叶天士)

There was gastric cavity pain that had already ceased. Currently there was a sour taste in the mouth.  Actually this is Liver constraint.

    I am curious why this is Liver constraint but he does not treat the Liver? Does someone have an idea?

    Aw, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate alot and never seem to get anything done
