TCM is useful for treating a broad range of conditions that are often grouped under headings like food allergy and asthma, but which may in fact be the result of problems in several organ systems that must be addressed in concert. Bringing about short-term relief and long-term remedy may, under an “integrative” model, be best achieved through a combination of Western medicine in the short run and TCM. The practice is now being broadened through consultation with Paul Ehrlich, MD, board-certified pediatric allergist and a fellow of the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology.
These are conditions that have shown great promise and success in Dr. Li’s practice in cases that are described in Food Allergies: Traditional Chinese Medicine, Western Science, and the Search for a Cure (Chapter 15):
Other conditions and patient profiles that have either begun to show promise with publication pending, or are considered suitable for treatment and further research:
While TCM treatment is estimated to take two to four years for most of the conditions described above, immediate and conscientious compliance with the protocol can produce considerable progress in the first few months, so it is necessary to start right way.
Delay can mean significant changes in the patient’s condition. If for some reason you delay treatment for more than three months after a protocol is designed and herbal medicine is prescribed, you will be required to have a new initial consultation.
