What can Chinese Medicine Treat?

Asking what Chinese medicine can treat is a little like asking what can Western medicine treat. Traditional Chinese medicine can benefit almost any condition through its combination of treatment methods. While it can treat many conditions it may not always be the best choice. For instance acupuncture could be used to relieve a toothache as could pain killing drugs provided by a Western doctor however a visit to the dentist may be a more effective treatment than either. A practitioner will be able to guide you on the specifics of whether the therapy is suitable for you or not.

If you prefer to use a drug free, non-invasive treatment then you should consider Chinese medicine for almost any condition.
