7 effective ways to benefit from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) at home

I used to see a TCM practitioner multiple times per week for herbal medicines and acupuncture and believe that following a treatment plan created by an experienced TCM is the surest way of getting the most out of TCM. Effective applications of TCM much depend on the knowledge and experiences of the practitioner to customize the treatments to the patient’s specific needs. This is true with the Western medicines, too, but even more so with TCM, which approaches patients in a holistic manner.
