Five More Ways Chinese Medicine Treats Colitis
In this second installment of a two-part series, Doctors Health Press examines five more ways Chinese Traditional Medicine treats colitis.
Ancient Chinese beliefs hold that causes of colitis include a virus or bacteria, an imbalance in your mind, reduced “fire” in your body, and a deficiency in your spleen or stomach. Those two organs, they maintain, are the primary causes of colitis.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, one of the early signs of colitis is a “damp heat” that slowly builds. As the disease advances, the kidney becomes affected with a deficiency of yang. An excess of dampness is triggered.
