What conditions can Chinese medicine treat?


The Chinese medicine theory believes that it is important to treat both the symptoms and their root. Acupuncture can usually provide a quick remedy by relieving the symptoms. For instance, many forms of pains are stopped as soon as acupuncture needles are inserted. In contrast Chinese herbs are usually used to tackle the root of problems and it usually takes much longer before their benefit can be clearly felt. However, since the Chinese medicine is holistic, you may feel that you are in better shape as soon as you begin your herbal treatment.

Although in the west people usually associate acupuncture with pain relief, when combined with herbs, it can treat a variety of conditions.
