Acne, psoriasis, eczema, and other skin disorders affect around 20% of Americans. Western-trained physicians usually use conventional treatment to provide temporal relief for these dermatological problems. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners, on the other hand, not only address the symptoms of the patient they also treat the root causes of the symptoms. They are able to customize treatments for each patient and alter the treatment as needed as the skin naturally repairs itself.

How Long Does Treatment Take Effect?

You are stressed, uncomfortable, and extremely itchy. Your skin is something you’d rather not look at. We know that what you want is prompt relief.

Substantial relief from the discomfort and itching are commonly experienced by patients inside a couple of weeks with TCM treatments such as Chinese herbs and acupuncture as well as changes in their diet and it just keeps getting better after that. The entire duration of the treatment may take six months but if you suffer from a severe type of skin condition, treatment may take even a bit longer.

TCM practitioners in Orlando will focus on treating the symptoms of cracked dry skin, bumps, plaques, oozing, heat, dryness, redness, pain, itching, and other uncomfortable symptoms during the first three months of treatment.

For the next three months, they turn their attention to nourishing and repairing the skin. To prevent flare-ups, they resolve the underlying cause of energetic disharmony. When patients fail to undergo the second phase of treatment, it is very likely that their skin condition will return.

The method of TCM is designed to completely cure skin disorders within six months with the conditions very rarely reoccurring.

The skin may permanently degrade and thin if steroid creams are used quite frequently. The topical ointments made from Chinese medicinal herbs are safe and has no side effects whatsoever even if they’re used for a lifetime. The immune system can also be impaired with overuse of internal steroids. Chinese medicine, however, actually strengthens the health of the immune system. The use of
topical steroid creams can result in serious withdrawal rashes. This does not happen in a patient that completes the required Chinese herbal treatment regimen.

If you have a persistent rash that would not go away or a rash that may be connected to a fever, a new mole, or even skin cancer, we suggest that you see a doctor immediately.
