Skin diseases or dermatological disorders can also be difficult to treat with Traditional Chinese Medicine, but with one big difference; we’re able to identify clear etiologies for such diseases, and the treatment for them goes far beyond superficial topical ones. In treating psoriasis and eczema in our clinic, we expect a 40% improvement fairly quickly, with improvement beyond that level over time. There are no side effects of treatment and the patient will feel an overall improvement in health and vitality. Treatment consists of both acupuncture and custom Chinese herbal formulas.
Skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, and vitiligo are difficult to treat well with Western Medicine. Hives and Uticaria can be treated well with drugs, but only to the extent that symptoms are relieved. In Western Medicine, the true cause of such disorders remains somewhat murky. Consequently, treatments are usually in the form of topical medicine, which is not adequate to remove the root cause of the problem. There are pharmaceutical drugs which treat these diseases systemically, but there are many unwanted side effects, making treatment more difficult.
