What kind of conditions does Chinese Medicine treat?
Since Chinese Medicine (CM) has taken care of billions of Chinese people for over 2000 years, almost every imaginable condition can be treated within the realm of Chinese Medicine.
The World Health Organization has created a long list of conditions for which Chinese Medicine is appropriate, including:
Infections: Colds and flu, Bronchitis, Hepatitis
Internal Medicine: Hypoglycemia, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, Ulcers, Colitis, Indigestion, Hemorrhoids, Diarrhea, Constipation, Diabetes
Ears, Eyes, Nose and Throat Disorders: Ringing of ears, Earaches, Poor eyesight, Dizziness, Sinus infections, Sore throat, Hay fever
Dermatological Disorders: Eczema, Acne, Herpes
Musculoskeletal and Neurological Disorders: Arthritis, Neuralgia, Sciatica, Back pain, Bursitis, Tendonitis, Stiff neck, Bell’s Palsy, Stroke, Cerebral Palsy, Sprains
Uro-Genital and Reproductive Disorders: Impotence, Infertility, Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), Vaginitis, Irregular menses or cramping, Morning sickness, Pre and post-natal care
Mental and Emotional Disorders: Anxiety, Depression, Stress, Insomnia, S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder)
Furthermore, since CM is constantly evolving it is actively (mainly in China) developing tools to treat modern diseases, many times mixed with Western Medical approaches. So the question becomes what diseases does the practitioner have experience treating or does the practitioner have access to sufficient translated material, or Chinese language sources, to treat the condition. The best thing to do is to ask your prospective practitioner specifically about your condition. Certain practitioners will be better suited for certain conditions.
