Treating the Skin
In Chinese medicine, skin diseases and afflictions testify to the patient’s internal, physical and mental imbalance. Traditional Chinese medicine holds that internal physical and mental changes are at the heart of the body’s natural healing process, and will lead to an external change and to healing the skin.
David Perla, who treats skin problems according to Chinese medicine, sees the restoration of the patient’s internal physical and mental balance as the main goal, thus strengthening the body’s healing processes and properly nourishing the skin.
This balance will reduce the frequency scope of the illness and its accompanying symptoms (rash, redness, and dandruff), leading to an improvement in the patient’s quality of life and full recovery. Common skin afflictions that can be treated using Chinese medicine include: atopic dermatitis – asthma of the skin, seborrhea, psoriasis, acne, urticaria, pruritus (itch) and more.
According to Chinese medicine, treatment of skin afflictions includes four major components that are each essential for its success: acupuncture, medicinal herbs, natural ointments and a dietary change and food additives.
