I've tried Chinese herbs for my skin

Chinese medicine is a vast and complex form of medicine.  The treatment approaches with Chinese herbs can be very complex and require much training and skill to properly formulate an effective treatment.  So going to any acupuncturist in your area to address your skin complaint isn't a wise decision.  Dermatology in Chinese medicine requires specific training and knowledge to properly diagnosis and treat the condition.  So if your intentions are to treat your skin naturally, seek out a skilled practitioner, such as myself, that has specialized in this field of study in order to receive an appropriate herbal treatment.

Just as the allopathic medical community has specialization, so does the field of Acupuncture and Chinese medicine.  Some practitioners have a practice focusing more on fertility and gynecology, some men's health, others more pain management, or dermatology; the list goes on.  But the thing to remember is don't just assume that the Acupuncturist or Chinese medicine practitioner you go to see has training or specializes in dermatology.  And don't assume that all Acupuncturists practice Chinese herbal medicine, for many have minimal training in the the use of herbs.  So, you may have tried Chinese herbs to address your skin but did you seek out a qualified Chinese medicine practitioner that specializes in Dermatology?
