Immune disorder treatment

Autoimmunity affects a very many people, and can be developed from a genetic condition, a product of stress, or even viruses and bacteria can affect the immune system to the point where it’s attacking its own cells.

There are a range of autoimmune disorders our patients come into our clinic to target, some of which include:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

  • Psoriasis

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Diabetes

  • Hashimotos

  • Alopecia

How is autoimmune disease approached in Western Medicine?

Autoimmunity is essentially the immune system attacking your own cells.

Treatments in the Western world could include the likes of corticosteroids, topical treatments, or prescriptions that include extreme measures; with certain treatments even weakening the immune system to counterbalance the negative effects of your disorder.

We don’t believe in providing you with treatment to just target symptoms, we believe in providing a holistic solution to the root cause of your autoimmune disorder.

How do we approach autoimmune disorders with TCM?

We at Herbal China originally diagnose you by running the routine checks, checking your tongue and discussing your autoimmune issue in detail.

We then tailor a treatment to you according to your needs, we will monitor your over the course of your treatment, tweaking the herbal medicine as we go along to help the overall treatment process.

We provide tailored treatments which may include acupuncture and a course of herbal medicine to help strengthen the immune system from within.

Our herbal treatments include strengthening vital organs that are essential for a well-functioning immune system, these organs include the heart, kidneys, spleen and liver.


Herbal medicine complements acupuncture well, by lowering blood heat and allowing Qi to flow freely through the body.

Herbal Medicine & Acupuncture for Alopecia

Alopecia is a hair loss condition that attacks the hair follicles and affects 2 in every 1000 people in the UK.

The most common type of alopecia is alopecia areata, which break into three sub-types:

  • Alopecia areata

  • Alopecia areata totalis

  • Alopecia areata universalis

The TCM approach to alopecia, involves guiding the Qi, and ensuring that any blood deficiency is accounted for.

Other aspects of the herbal approach to alopecia includes addressing any liver or kidney yin deficiency, which may be causing blood heat or excess wind that can be negatively affecting your condition.

Another aspect of treating alopecia naturally is ensuring that damp heat accumulation is accounted for, which usually affects the lungs, spleen and kidneys – Damp heat also tends to obstruct meridians, which can lead to hair loss.

Our approach to combatting alopecia is a combination of acupuncture sessions and tailored herbal medicine treatments to help lower blood heat, guide the Qi, and strengthen the internal organs.
