What is Traditional Chinese Medicine good for?

In the U.S. today, science and technology have made available to us the most advanced medical machines, the most sophisticated surgical procedures and the newest pharmaceuticals one can find anywhere in the world.

In spite of this good fortune, many people are still not able to find solutions to a myriad of ailments beyond a temporary control of the symptoms. Here is a sample of those ailments collected from my own patients' records:

  • Respiratory system:
    • asthma
    • allergies
    • sinus infection
  • Circulatory system:
    • high blood pressure
    • palpitation in sleep
    • irregular heart beat (arrhythmia)
  • Digestive system:
    • acid reflux
    • Crohn's disease
    • long-term constipation
    • constant hunger
    • constant thirst
  • Urinary system:
    • frequent night urination
    • enlarged prostate gland
  • Reproductive system:
    • infertility
    • premenstrual cramps
  • Nervous system:
    • chronic fatigue
    • hot flashes, night sweat
    • insomnia
    • migraine headache
    • anxiety, depression, anger
    • shingles (herpes zoster)
    • foot burning (peripheral neuropathy)
  • Musculoskeletal system:
    • fibromyalgia (constant muscle pain)
    • arthritis
    • carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow
    • lower back pain, sciatic pain, hip pain
  • Sensory system:
    • ear ringing
    • blood-shot eyes

Some of these patients turn to the ancient art of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and find acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine very helpful. I have the patients' records to prove it.

Have you wondered how TCM is able to help these people?
