Acute, chronic or unclear diseases


Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be valuable anywhere where physical, intellectual or emotional functions are impaired.

As damaged tissue usually cannot be repaired, Chinese Medicine focuses on enhancing and stabilizing the functions of remaining organs or tissue.

TCM treats the superficial symptoms as well as the roots of a disease, so that acute as well as chronic diseases can be treated.


As TCM applies an anamnesis and diagnostic system that is very different from western medicine, it is possible to find therapeutic approaches in hard to diagnose or unclear diseases. A  TCM diagnosis relays on enquiry of the patient, palpitation and - most important – the diagnosis of pulse and tongue.


It can be applied for inner diseases, gynaecological and andrological, hormonal, metabolism, psychosomatic, immune mediated diseases as well as ailments of muscles, bones or joints (muscosceletal system).

TCM is applied for diseases and impairment of eyes or the other sense organs, e.g. weak eyesight or tinnitus.

Also the treatment of skin diseases and allergies has a long tradition in Chinese Medicine.

Mental health problems
as well as emotional imbalance are a further traditional application of Chinese Medicine.

TCM is valuable for a very broad range of diseases. One reason might be that in a TCM treatment the patient rather than the disease is in the centre of focus of the practitioner.

Following the principle „treat the same disease with different strategies” TCM will find different diagnosis in different patients with the same “western” diagnosis and will treat them accordingly with a treatment individually adapted to each patient. E.g. lumbar pain can be caused by an imbalance in the kidney or its meridian as well as by an imbalance in the liver or its meridian. Though the pain occurs exactly at the same point, two very different strategies of treatment must be applied.


The principle „one strategy treat different diseases” means that inner imbalances cause different diseases in different patients. An imbalance called „stomach heat” may cause oesophageal reflux in one patient and gum bleeding or headache in others. The treatment in all three cases is mostly the same (with small variations).
