About 20% of patients with chronic sinusitis may develop nasal polyps, cyst-like growths that develop from sinus tissue and may further obstruct the sinuses.

    Perhaps in no organ system is the similarity and difference between Western physiological and Traditional Chinese physiology more evident than in the TCM description of the liver.

If implemented correctly, they certainly won’t cause any harm and may offer a sustainable solution in a difficult economic climate.
