Skin Disorders

It is well known that most skin conditions are poorly treated by Western medicine. Most sufferers are commonly prescribed steroid treatments in order to address the symptoms. However, steroids may cause a number of severe adverse effects and do not usually address the causes. For conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, there is extensive evidence that TCM can alleviate the symptoms with equal efficacy and, certainly, with fewer side effects. Furthermore, for skin disorders with an autoimmune component, herbal treatments can be tailored to attempt to suppress the cause. Skin conditions are affected very strongly by stress and hypersensitivity to environmental allergens. The Institute continues to pursue research in this area, and provides treatments that address these issues specifically with good results.
