Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has proven effective in treating a vast array of internal medicine conditions, whether acute or chronic. When applying the holistic approach of TCM, doctors consider several parameters to characterize the pattern of a disease in order to fully treat the patient. According to the philosophies of TCM and to a detailed diagnosis, doctors will design a treatment plan which usually comprises a combination of herbal medicine and acupuncture – among other therapies.
TCM can effectively cure internal medicine disorders such as:
- Digestive disorders (constipation, diarrhea, acid reflux, etc.)
- Respiratory tract disorders (influenza and colds, coughs, asthma, etc.)
- Headaches and migraines
- Burn-out syndrome
- Thyroid disorders symptoms
- Kidney diseases
- Overweight and obesity
- Hormonal imbalances
Consistent with Body & Soul’s integrative approach to health, doctors can also use the help of Western modern diagnostic techniques such as blood test and ultrasound to complement their diagnosis. Likewise, the treatment plan they’ll design for their patient may include Western therapies in order to treat the whole person. When necessary, Western medication can also be prescribed – notably in cases of severe bacterial infection proved by blood test.
