Many patients with skin conditions get much better results with acupuncture, herbs and homeopathy than with western allopathic medicine. A number of chronic skin ailments, such as eczema, seborrhea, urticaria, and psoriasis often reflect an internal imbalance that Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can address so well. The advantages of TCM are that is has longer-lasting results and less severe side effects than western allopathic medicine.
