Bathe in a boiling hotpot (火锅) whilst simultaneously inserting several baozi (包子) into ones anal orifice.

 

Like all TCM, this is 100% guaranteed NOT to work.

I know someone with recurrent urinary tract infections (I guess this what you call UTIs). Various hospitals, various doctors, roughly the same prescription : a dose of antibiotics. Sometime with additional expensive stuffs without clear labels nor explanations of what it does and why it's described, just "It's TCM".

My observation : So in China, it seems that they use antibiotics for UTIs. The additional TCM can't be accounted for, because it's not even labelled and it's not prescribed in a consistent manner (give X for diagnostic Y). Think "medicine", not "<human group> medicine". There's science and there's feel-good fluff.

Bacterial infections are cured by antibiotics. China has plenty of those.

@ScotsAlan 

 

Also, cut out things like caffeine, alcohol, spicy food, nicotine, carbonated drinks and artificial sweetness.

 Did I just look for this information online myself? Well done me ! 

you know the internet is a great thing, you can find out so much by yourself if you have the energy to type on a keyboard. (unless of course you want to find out dangerous information like quick and easy, non-medical remedies for common problems)

 

ScotsAlan:

I did not have to Bing it sorrel. My ex-wife used to get cystitis. The hot pee where you need to go but cant. Lots of high vit C liquids works. No need for medicine, Chinese or otherwise :-)

Stop inserting objects into your urinary tract might help...

Firstly, prevention is better than the cure. In future, wear a condom when you shag a hooker. No brainer there.

It is probably an NSU. Try antibiotics and wash your whistle.

TCM doesn't pass the common sense test.  Think about it.

So my answer would be the same as the others.  

Special mention of Sorrel's answer...thanks for that, Sorrel.  My daily chuckle taken care of just in the nick of time.

These things (daily chuckles) are becoming something of a rare commodity for me of late.

I feel like saying "fuk China!", but I won't.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
