Maybe you have had that experience, you feel pain, exhaustion, or really any type of symptom; you go to the doctor to have it checked – all kinds of tests are being run and – nothing. It’s all good.
But the symptoms are there almost as if you are only imagining them. It can be a very frustrating experience.
The beauty of Chinese medicine is that it runs independently from Western medicine diagnostics. In the end, it always comes down to pulse and tongue diagnosis. If there are signs of deficiency, you tonify, if there are Cold signs you heat the body and, of course, you cool wherever there are heat signs.
For example, if you have diarrhea, abdominal pain and maybe fixed joint pain and the diagnosis is “Cold”, acupuncture and herbs will treat the Cold and not your individual symptoms as they are only expressions of the real pathogen.
