Chinese medicine uses "differential diagnosis" to identify the underlying causes of each person's dis-ease manifestations. Two people may have a similar diagnosis, like IBS, but have different constitutional reasons for the condition, and accordingly must be treated with different approaches.
Internal medicine conditions often require a longer course of treatment to see significant results – on average 2-3 months of regular care. Herbal supplements are often an important part of the treatment plan.
