Miscellaneous (TCM – General medicine)
Although the focus of my practice lies on Gynecology, Fertility Treatment and Dermatology, you are welcome as a patient with general complaints! The following lists the medical conditions most frequently treated with TCM, and which I see most in my practice, besides Chinese Gynecology and Chinese Dermatology.
Pain: Including headaches, migraines, back pain, neck pain, joint pain and abdominal pain. Depending on the type and cause of pain mainly Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture and cupping may be used.
Digestive Disorders: Digestive problems mainly include nausea, diarrhea, constipation, loss of appetite or too much appetite, acid reflux and indigestion. Digestive problems usually respond quite well to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Mainly acupuncture, Chinese herbal treatment and Chinese nutritional therapy may be used.
Respiratory Disorders: Respiratory Disorders include illnesses, ailments and symptoms such as tightness in the chest, shortness of breath, cough, common cold, allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and sinusitis. Mainly acupuncture, Chinese herbal treatment and Chinese nutritional therapy may be used. Another important aspect in your therapy is restoring your immune system.

Tiredness, Fatigue and Sleeping Disorders: Tiredness, fatigue, loss of concentration and insomnia are very common now and can have many causes. Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture should be quite useful.
