Holistic Medicine for Skin Disorders

For many years, different modalities of the holistic medicine have used herbs in the treatment of skin disorders, such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, alopecia, and others. Many physicians in Skin disordersthe present day remain using the philosophy of the holistic approach to cure individuals that have a preference to less aggressive and more natural healing. Holistic medicine understands wellness as stability among the organisms and the surroundings we live in. The disproportion of the equilibrium amid vigour, Qi-energy, and body fluids causes the progress of the illness. The influence of environmental situations furthermore stimulates the development of an illness. The list of those environmental conditions includes different specific weather, climate and magnetic conditions in the geographical area where the patient’s body developed or live at the present time. Some of those circumstances are the wind, solar radiation, earth magnetic activities, heat and cold, dampness and dryness, volcanos activities, etc. Also, holistic medicine sees the emotional condition as a strong impact on an individual’s well-being.

Different modalities of holistic medicine view the mechanism of skin disorders unlike

For example from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) point of view, all skin disorders belong to one of the four clinical classes: Chang-Yang, Pi-Fu-Ling, Gan-Men-Bing, and Za-Bing. Translated in plain English that generally means: skin lesions, eruptions and warts, rectal polyps, cracks and hemorrhoids, and gangrene. Homeopathy looks completely different and the goal of the homeopathic practitioner is to find the remedy that in therapeutic dose can cause the same symptoms as this particular individual has. The list of those remedies for skin disorders is huge and it’s very important to choose the only one appropriate medication. Reiki sees in skin disorders a disbalance between cosmic and Earth energies as well as obstruction of chakra(s) that prevent energy to flow between internal systems of the human body and Universe.

Traditional Chinese Medicine for skin disorders

Traditional Chinese Medicine combines the use of medicinal herbs and acupuncture. Among the most popular herbal formulas, “Three Yellow Cleanser” is number one. This herbal medicine used for eczema, psoriasis, facial acne and many other skin disorders that belong to the class of “cold property”, which I explained above. The acupuncturist is checking the condition of Qi meridians (12 main meridians) prior to treatment of the patients with skin disorders. I am a mother of 3 kids and I never have any time for myself. One day I was doing research on for my youngest son’s cough medication and came across the name Accutane. I’d been suffering from acne since my first pregnancy but I never had the space in my life to get treated for it. The article made me curious so I asked a doctor about it. Accutane is a miracle worker! The best technique to discover access or deficiency in meridians is pulse diagnostic. Based on the result of this method acupuncturist create a protocol (set of acupuncture points to be needled). Besides these two most popular TCM treatments healthy diet is very important to achieve the result. Normally it’s recommended for patients with skin disorders to avoid seafood and alcohol. At the same time-consuming fruits and vegetables may benefit the treatment process.

Homeopathic treatment for skin disorders

The homeopathic practitioner may select the appropriate remedy either by symptoms or by the constitution of the patient. The constitutional treatment is much more advanced, but at the same time is more complicated. Not each homeopath can choose the correct constitutional remedy because each small detail is important and homeopathic assessment may take as long as few hours. The most popular symptomatic homeopathic remedies for skin disorders are Sulphur, Arsenicum Album, Graphite, Apis etc. If however, homeopath prescribes constitutional remedy it could be any homeopathic drug registered under Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS). Reiki healer checks the aura and chakras condition and depending on the location of the holes in the aura or obstruction of particular chakras the treatment points to the energy deficient parts of the body. Dr. Tsan – Medical Director of Viva Healthy Life has extensive academical and clinical experience in the treatment of different forms of skin disorders. Being the specialist in acupuncture, homeopathy, and Reiki he successfully uses all these three modalities and gets maximum benefits from each of them.
