The illnesses found in early childhood such as measles, chickenpox, mumps, recurrent fevers and ear infections are all reduced in severity and duration without the potential side effects of drug based therapies. Even longer-term issues ranging from bed-wetting and asthma to ADHD and some forms of autism respond remarkably well when treated with Chinese Medicine.
ARTHRITIS & INFLAMMATORY CONDITIONS
Both acupuncture and Chinese herbs are extremely effective in treating arthritis and inflammatory diseases. Acupuncture is an extremely effective tool in pain management and often the treatment of choice, yielding excellent results in both acute and chronic cases. Acute cases frequently resolve with only a few treatments. However, the majority of patients we see with these problems present with chronic history and these cases can require more long term treatment.
