What conditions does Cleveland Clinic feel are best treated with Chinese herbal therapy?
The information below is from the Cleveland Clinic website:
Like acupuncture, Chinese herbs can address “unhealthy body patterns” that manifest in a variety of symptoms and complaints. Chinese herbal therapy aims to help you regain homeostasis, or balance, in your body and to strengthen your body’s resistance to disease. Chinese herbs may be used to:
Decrease cold/flu symptoms
Increase your energy
Improve your breathing
Improve your sleep
Improve menopausal symptoms
Help regulate menstrual cycles if infertility is an issue
Reduce side-effects from chemotherapy and radiation
They can help keep prediabetes from becoming diabetes.
Cleveland Clinic may recommend Chinese herbal therapy when:
You have multiple symptoms or they are hard to pinpoint
You’ve exhausted traditional medical options and nothing seems to help
You need therapy to counteract side effects of prescribed medication
