TCM and Western medicine have their respective focuses and complementary strengths in treating coronavirus. Western medicine offers life-supporting measures such as respiratory and circulatory assistance, while TCM focuses on improving patients' physical conditions and immune function.
Based on multiple sources published in China, nationwide, over 75 percent of COVID-19 patients are receiving TCM treatment in Hubei and over 90 percent in other parts of China. The success rate of treatments have been impressive.
"Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS). The most recently discovered coronavirus causes coronavirus disease COVID-19." "COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the most recently discovered coronavirus. This new virus and disease were unknown before the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019."
"The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Some patients may have aches and pains, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhea. These symptoms are usually mild and begin gradually. Some people become infected but don’t develop any symptoms and don't feel unwell. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment. Around 1 out of every 6 people who gets COVID-19 becomes seriously ill and develops difficulty breathing. Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness. People with fever, cough and difficulty breathing should seek medical attention."

In traditional Chinese medicine, moxibustion is used on people who have a cold or stagnant condition. The burning of moxa helps to expel cold and warm the meridians, which leads to smoother flow of blood and Qi.
One unique application of Moxa is to turn a baby from breech position to head down position while it's still in the uterus.

Chinese Herbal Medicine, along with the other components of Chinese medicine, is based on the concepts of Yin and Yang. It aims to understand and treat the many ways in which the fundamental balance and harmony between the two may be undermined and the ways in which a person's Qi or vitality may be depleted or blocked. Clinical strategies are based upon diagnosis of patterns of signs and symptoms that reflect an imbalance.
Our clinic offers easy to take herbal medicine, including herbal powders, pills, and tea bags.

"For years I had congestion in my throat which caused me great irritation. Western medicine doctors could not determine the cause. I went to Dr Iben to see whether Chinese medicine could help. ... From the first dose, my throat cleared up and relieved all my symptoms."
