Dermatology / Skin Disorders

We at Makari Wellness, like many other dermatology specialists, believe that raw herbal decoctions are the best and often necessary treatment for such conditions. In treating dermatology cases we only use herbal medicines- both internal and external. No acupuncture. Improvements should be seen within the first 2 to 8 weeks if we are to expect positive outcomes. Treatment may will generally range form a couple months to a year depending upon severity and many patients will be cured or enter remission with need of a follow up only after a minor flare-up after a long period of time. Everybody’s case is different and this is what makes Chinese Herbal Medicine and its collected wisdom so powerful for changing lives.

Although Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been treating internal disease for over 4,000 years, TCM dermatology began being developed since 300-200BCE and was officially designated a medical specialty within TCM in the mid-1900’s. Diseases of the skin are often complex and deeply rooted requiring highly-trained herbal practitioners offering time-tested and effective treatments. Chinese medicine offers treatments for common conditions including acne, eczema, and psoriasis that are safe and more effective for many than the conventional treatments of corticosteroids, antibiotics and topical chemicals. Many times while undergoing treatment other symptoms displayed by the patient are also corrected as the body’s functions are restored.
