Heal Skin Disorders With Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) believes that skin disorders are generally caused by internal disharmonies and environmental influences such as heat, wind, damp, dryness and cold. Once these imbalances are removed from the system, the skin naturally heals.
In treating skin disorders Care Cure practitioners take into account the type of skin eruption, skin colour, body temperature, diet, daily activities, climate and emotions that are associated with the problem. Details such as the onset, duration and frequency of the skin disorder as well as any other signs of imbalance in the digestive system, sleep patterns and the immune system are also examined.
Effective treatments for these conditions are acupuncture, acupressure, and herbal medicine. These therapies strengthen the immune system thereby decreasing skin sensitivity, releasing toxins, repairing and nourishing the skin, stopping infections and purifying the blood.
Treating skin conditions with Chinese Medicine is well worth the time and patience it requires. In general results are seen as early as one week into treatment but can often take a number of weeks to clear up completely. This is because we are balancing the body from the inside out rather than just masking symptoms.
