Dermatology has a long history in Chinese medicine. Centuries of development have led to highly effective methods of treatment. These methods include the use of customized herbal teas, topical herbal applications, acupuncture, and dietary and lifestyle modifications. These methods address imbalances rooted deep within the body’s metabolism, while simultaneously addressing acute symptoms, such as itching, redness and dryness of the skin.
Western methods of dermatologic treatment are often very effective in managing acute symptoms, but long-term use of medications is often problematic due to side effects. Steroids will reduce inflammation temporarily, but with long-term usage topically they can lead to atrophy of the skin, and internally they can lead to liver damage. Antibiotics are essential for treating acute bacterial infections and can be life saving, but long-term usage again is problematic. And as we know, overuse of antibiotics in general is a public health concern due to the rise of serious infections like MRSA.
Chinese medicine can help you avoid these problematic side-effects, and with long-term results. And because of Chinese medicine’s holistic approach, digestive issues, sleep issues and other health concerns will simultaneously be addressed. So not only will your skin look and feel better, but you’ll also feel better from the inside out.
