Acne Problems? Chinese Medicine could be the cure. Chinese Medicine not only involves acupuncture but Chinese herbs which are especially good at clearing skin. As with western herbs Chinese herbs can be used internally or topically. This gives the advantage of helping to clear the liver and lymph system as well as address the skin from the outside. The medical terms and treatment strategies in Chinese medicine are somewhat different than conventional medicine but if the rules are followed correctly the patient usually improves. In the context of Chinese medicine often the issue is one of ‘ Heat ‘ . This is due to a stagnation of phlegm, dampness and blood which accumulates in dark patches. So the treatment plan then is move the stuck blood, clear the heat and remove the stagnation. Such herbs as rhubarb, peony and astralagus are easy to obtain and can be taken in capsule form or steeped into a tea. Taken over several weeks they can usually make a difference. Basil can be steeped in boiling water and applied topically to help especially with chronic areas. A drink of carrot and beet juice can be beneficial as it helps detoxify the liver. Acupuncture treatment can also help especially when used in conjunction with the herbs. Acne problems can be a common issue for teenagers as their hormones begin to kick in. Genetics can also play a role as does diet. Junk food diets that are high on the glycemic index containing high salt and saturated fats are a particular problem. These diets tend to overload the lymph system particularly if an individual has poor fat digestion. Over the counter enzymes such as lipase can be big help and can easily found at any health food store.
