Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for centuries for the treatment of skin disorders, such as eczema, acne, psoriasis, and alopecia, and offers an alternative to chemical or more invasive treatments.
Typical herbal therapies applied in the treatment of skin disorders include herbs with anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and antiviral qualities, such as Rhubarb, Sophora, Phellodendron, and Skullcap, often used together in formulas. Acupuncture is also used to increase the production of endorphins and simultaneously activates the immune and endocrine systems. For skin disorders, acupuncture points are generally stimulated along the arms, legs and torso.
A change of diet is also generally recommended with the treatment of skin disorders. Leafy green vegetables and fruits are generally recommended, while alcohol, fish, shrimp, and crab should be avoided.
The application of natural oils as part of your skin maintenance routine can also help with promoting a healthy skin. Moringa oil, argan oil, rosehip oil, hemp seed oil, and coconut oil have various properties that protect the skins from external damage, promote healing, and reduce aging.
