Integrated Medicine - (acupuncture, alternative medicine, holistic medicine, natural medcine): "Some of the Common Medical Conditions Which Respond Best To Chinese Medicine

In general terms, Chinese medicine is best used early, after the onset of symptoms, rather than late in the illness and as a last resort, when all else has failed.

The more functional the problem, the faster and more completely it can be reversed with the use of acupuncture and/or herbs, moxibustion and dietary therapeutics.

In Chinese medicine, diseases are thought to move 'from the exterior to the interior,' and are most curable and reversible when caught on their way in, rather than waiting until they settle inside. For example, chest pains of various functional types are more curable with Chinese medicine than a chest pain originating from a well-established heart attack. And likewise, PMS, menstrual cramps and pelvic pain are easier to treat and resolve than uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts or ovarian cancer.

Yet, the importance of treating early symptoms early goes beyond the issue of effectiveness of treating exterior versus interior conditions. In fact, leaving early symptoms untreated just because 'the exam is normal, the blood tests didn�t show anything, and the CAT scan was negative,' is a negligent sit�n wait attitude, which allows otherwise functional and reversible problems to deepen and transform into irreversible and established diseases.

Therefore, it is important that treatment with Chinese medicine, or Chinese and Western medicine, start early rather than being satisfied with a 'clean bill of health' in the face of persistent symptoms.
