Enhancing Fertility with Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine
By Fay-Meling von Moltke Pao, D. Ac.

Q:  I am a 41-year-old woman with rosacea and would like to know how TCM can treat this frustrating skin condition. My doctor has prescribed antibiotics but they have not helped.

A: Rosacea, like all Western diagnoses, must first be placed in a TCM context. From our perspective, this condition can have a variety of presentations, each with its own unique etiology. Often, patients with rosacea and similar skin conditions exhibit symptoms of heat (e.g., blood heat, heat toxin or trapped heat) that may have resulted from improper diet or an external pathogen and/or stagnation due to the impaired flow of qi and blood....
