What types of disease can TCVM treat?

Good news! As long as we can find the pattern of the disease we can treat any type of disease. Please check out our testimonials for various disease stories. Not to mention, TCVM is also a great preventative and maybe something you want to consider.

Does herbal medicine and food therapy work immediately?

There is no time limit as we are treating the pattern of disease. For example, if our fluffy has had a skin disease for five years it will not be solved in a week. We need to focus on food therapy and herbal medicine for an extended period of time to see the full outcome of the treatment.
