Q: “What Kinds of Conditions Can Traditional Chinese Medicine Heal?”

A: By restoring natural physiological balance, Chinese medicine can be effective for a wide range of health issues broadly categorized as:
1) Medical benefits,
2) Physical benefits, and

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) declared in 1997 that acupuncture is useful alone, or in combination with other therapies to treat asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, Fibromyalgia, headaches, lower back pain, menstrual cramps, myofascial pain, and osteoarthritis, and others…

The World Health Organization (WHO) also recognizes that acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine is an effective way to treat dozens of ailments. In summary, TCM offers effective relief for…

Other painful conditions can be relieved for almost any medical problem which has been thoroughly diagnosed and treated but in which the pain has been unable to be controlled.
  • GASTROINTESTINAL: Digestive & intestinal complaints and pain, candida, Crohn’s disease, colitis, constipation, diarrhea, gastritis, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), hiccups, ulcers, inflammation of the colon, nausea, and vomiting.
  • RESPIRATORY AND EAR, NOSE AND THROAT: Hoarseness, dry scratchy throat, coughs, common cold, flu, asthma, allergies, sinusitis, bronchitis, and vertigo.

2) PHYSICAL COMPLAINTS also respond well to Traditional Chinese Medicine;

  • The reduction or complete relief of most aches & pain
  • Enhancing your immune system and strengthening your body’s natural healing ability.
  • Muscular aches & pains including strains, sprains and sports injuries
  • Helping lose weight & maintaining a healthy weight
  • Improving your overall health, energy levels, vitality, and general well-being

3) BENEFITS TO WELL-BEING (such as mental & emotional struggles) are also effectively realized with AEHA when integrated with counseling from a qualified, professional counselor or therapist:

  • Depression, anger, grief, fear and loneliness
  • Concerns with self-esteem, relationships and/or interpersonal skills
  • Stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, panic attacks and the cravings associated with nicotine, drug & alcohol control/withdrawal
  • Career & life situation transitions
  • Decreasing & controlling situational stress anxieties, while increasing relaxation

It is worth noting that in Traditional Chinese Medicine, early treatment is emphasized since internal imbalances initially appear, and then after months, years, or decades those imbalances become diseases. It is always much easier to treat an imbalance than a disease.
