Chinese Medicine Dermatology
Dermatology is a subject that has interested me for years. I have been interested in herbs since childhood and years ago while a student my first herbal medicine patient was a dermatology case. The herbs successfully treated the patient and both myself and the patient were struck by how well their skin cleared up after taking the herbs. For me, this is still an enjoyable experience. I hope to share moments like this with you.
If you are here I assume it is safe to say that you are looking for help with a skin condition. You are not alone. Millions of people are dealing with acne cysts or psoriasis patches or the intolerable itch of eczema. While it is unfortunate that many of these conditions endure either long term or over a few years, the good thing is that herbs can be of benefit.
Traditional Chinese Medicine's (TCM) approach to dermatology uses both herbal teas for drinking as well as herbal ointments and salves. A Dermatology consultation provides a traditional herbal formula to be modified for your needs. Photographs will also be taken of skin lesions so that your particular progress can be tracked and your treatment can be more specific and beneficial.
What should you expect? For many conditions most people can expect significant clearing of skin lesions, improved resolution times, and over time decreased emergence of outbreaks when compared to no treatment. If you have not already visits the Herbal Consultation page, please do so for more info on what to expect in taking herbs.
