Pancreatitis - Related TCM Diagnostic Patterns

One or more of the following TCM Diagnostic Patterns are likely to be involved when a person is experiencing Pancreatitis. Proper treatment from a Chinese Medicine perspective involves finding the appropriate pattern(s) for a given person. The acupuncture points, techniques, and herbal medicines used will be focused around this pattern instead of being based on their specific condition(s) as it often is in western medicine. Properly done you are treating the root issues of the person which can then improve any number of individual health issues including those which the person may not have yet experienced (i.e. true prevention). The following list of related patterns are merely the most likely candidates, there are other causes and complicated cases may involved multiple patterns and/or complex relationships between patterns.
