Autoimmune Support

The symptoms of many autoimmune diseases can be significantly improved and successfully managed naturally with the proper use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).  Chinese herbal medicine is the primary method of TCM treatment employed in the management of autoimmune diseases, though acupuncture is often employed for additional pain reduction.  In milder forms of these diseases, TCM alone may be enough to minimize symptoms and control the progression of the disease.  In complex or more advanced cases, TCM is used integratively with western medicine to manage the illness.
