Our Conditions Treated with Chinese Medicine section has treatment information for a broad range of conditions. Chinese Medicine is used clinically for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) and related circulatory issues. Our discussion of hypertension first looks at the condition from a Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) perspective. We discuss the signs, symptoms and TCM diagnoses commonly found in people with hypertension. Acupuncture treatment protocols are offered for each condition along with Tong Ren NatureTherapy, Herbal Medicine and Lifestyle/Self-Help considerations. Each section also includes western medicine information related to the condition along with information for further research.
Note: Much of the information within this section requires an understanding of diagnosis and treatment methods within Chinese Medicine and it should not be used for self treatment. We recommend you consult a licensed acupuncturist in your area for help. It is also worth noting that the TCM diagnoses and related treatment methods listed here are one of many ways to diagnosis and treat this condition. Acupuncture, for example, has many styles such as Japanese Acupuncture which have unique theories, diagnoses and treatment protocols that may differ from the information presented below
