Anxiety, OCD treatment


I am a man suffering from anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder and stomach disorders. What is your best treatment for this?


As is stated quite often in these forums there is no “best” treatment for -anything- in Chinese Medicine. Your range of issues are not only treatable within Chinese Medicine but they are interwoven and generally best dealt with by working through the systemic processes of Chinese Medicine (acupuncture, herbal medicine, etc.). To better understand this process, I strongly suggest you read “treating the cause vs. the symptoms” which gives a gentle introduction into how Chinese Medicine approaches treatment and how the “best” treatment for you is the one that is designed specifically for you by your practitioner and that “best” treatment tailors itself constantly to the changing “you”.

Treating things as if they were static issues, as if we were static beings and our illnesses were fixed and static is the very downside of the linear model that is slowly but surely working its way out of western medicine as well, but that was never part of Chinese Medicine, hence the value.

For further exploration besides listed above: our blog has sections for anxiety and digestive issues which will give you an idea. An article that encompasses many of these and gives some insight into how we might approach someone like you is “Yue Ju Wan Study Shows Rapid Antidepressant Effect”.
