Have you tried everything and your skin is still a mess?
Are you worried about the side effects of long-term use of powerful steroids, like prednisone? Are you a parent who has a young child with severe skin rash and are concerned about using powerful pharmaceuticals for their treatment?
Chinese Medicine Dermatology
Chinese Medicine Dermatology can help in cases where other options have been exhausted or are not appealing. It has a lot to offer a client with skin issues because it has a unique perspective on human physiology.
Chinese Medicine looks at the skin within the context of the rest of the body, not in isolation. It sees all our bodily systems as interconnected, and that they all need to be taken into consideration in order to successfully treat the skin. Two people with the same skin condition, for example psoriasis, are rarely treated the same because of this perspective.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
They will receive different herbal formulas to take internally, and to apply topically. Chinese Herbal Medicine takes into account both the presenting symptoms and the overall state of the client’s health and tailors treatment specifically to that individual.
This is not to say that treating dermatological cases is simple, it is not. Dermatology can be challenging because it requires the patient to be willing to do their part by taking herbal formulas and applying topical treatments with consistency. For their part, the practitioner must have advanced training, access to high quality, potent Chinese herbal medicines, and have compassion for the patient.
Here at Spring Acupuncture & Wellness, we have brought together all the necessary resources for success with many types of Dermatological issues. As a child, Dean had severe, chronic atopic eczema for over 15 years and brings deep compassion for the dermatology patient to his work. He is also the first practitioner in Idaho to complete the entire training of Mazin Al-Khafaji’s Diploma Course in Chinese Medicine Dermatology. This specialized post-graduate course was over a year long, covering twenty of the most commonly seen skin conditions today. This is the most advanced, comprehensive training available today to the Western practitioner of Chinese Medicine.
