Natural and Alternative Nosebleed (Epistaxis) Treatment Options

Nosebleed (Epistaxis) Treatment {introduction}

Nosebleed (or epistaxis) is a common medical complaint. It may be an acute, self limiting issue such as from trauma to the nose. It may also arise from more chronic recurring issues such as bleeding disorders, hypertension, leukemia, vitamin k deficiency among others. From a Chinese Medicine perspective the more chronic issues require precise diagnosis within Chinese Medicine terms to help resolve the underlying physical issues leading to the nosebleeds.

TCM Diagnostic Patterns Related to Nosebleed (Epistaxis)

Listed below are Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) diagnostic patterns that are commonly involved with this western medical condition/symptom. Properly applied, Chinese Medicine (including acupuncture and herbal medicine) treats patterns not individual symptoms/conditions which may better account for the range of symptoms often experienced by individuals. Pattern diagnosis/treatment is a crucial part of using Chinese Medicine for disease prevention instead of focusing on solely symptomatic treatments as is somewhat more common in western medicine. For more on this concept, please read What Does Acupuncture Treat? Or Treating the "Cause" and not the "Symptoms".
