Obscure conditions:

Chinese medicine uses its own unique method for describing disease. As a result, the practitioner does not need put a Western label to the disease in order to treat it.  The benefit of this is that Chinese Medicine is often able to treat conditions that Western medicine has no name or explanation for. You may have an unexplained abdominal pain or a strange twitch in the leg, either way, Chinese medicine is great at solving obscure problems.

Side Effects of Modern Drugs:

Treating the side-effects of modern medication is an important role for Chinese medicine. If you are undergoing a heavy drug therapy such as for cancer, HIV or hepatitis, consider Chinese medicine as a support for this treatment. To experience relatively few, or even no, side-effects not only increases quality of life but gives the possibility of greater treatment success.

Incidences of negative interactions between Chinese medicine and modern drugs are rare. In most cases, the use of the two medical systems side-by-side simply gives enhanced results.
