Chronic Skin Problems – How Zi Zai Dermatology Will Help You
Imagine being a waitress with eczema on your hands. Each time you serve a plate of food or a drink to a customer, you worry what they think of the red, scaling skin and fissures on your hands. Consider being a new teacher with adult acne who suffers embarrassment and lack of confidence each time you stand in front of your class. Can you envision how devastating it would be if you were a surgeon with a blistering skin disease and you were put on medical leave because patients did not want you operating on them due to your open sores? What if you had itchy seborrheic dermatitis and had to explain to the hairstylist that the flakes covering your scalp are not contagious? Sense the anxiety in your gut on a first date if you had thick, scaly plaques of psoriasis all over. Or the madness that would set in if night after night you scratched yourself bloody because the relentless itch of eczema ruled your life.
Millions of people in the United States suffer from chronic inflammatory skin conditions. Are you one of them? I am. I have had rosacea since my early 20’s. I know what it feels like to spend energy worrying about and covering up my face. My face – that is the first part of me that people see! It is their first impression of me and I used to have trouble connecting with people because I was so concerned with how I was being seen. Discomfort from itching skin, humiliation, shame…skin diseases can significantly lower a person’s quality of life. Chinese Medicine can change that.
Our Herbal Approach to Skin Problems
At Zi Zai Dermatology, we use internal Chinese herbal prescriptions combined with external herbal products to restore the health of our patients’ skin. Chinese Medicine can be very effective for many inflammatory skin diseases and it does not pose the same risks and side effects as most of today’s pharmaceutical treatment options. Treatment is designed to clear inflammation, alleviate itch, and stabilize skin so it is less likely to become aggravated once treatment is discontinued. I am the most highly trained and experienced Chinese Medicine practitioner in the Rocky Mountain region specializing in dermatology and I am here to do everything in my power to get you comfortable in your skin again.
Live too far away to seek my care directly? We have a growing referral list of skilled practitioners that can help you. You can also contact the Avicenna Centre for Chinese Medicine in Hove, UK to find a trained dermatology practitioner near you. They maintain a list of all the TCM practitioners all over the world they have trained in Chinese Medicine Dermatology (that’s where I received my most recent dermatology training).
