We specialize in treating patients with eczema. That’s why it’s so gratifying to work with patients like Mykha who respond so well to herbal medicine.
“I was suffering severely from eczema…Not only was my skin red, hot and raw constantly, I also had trouble sleeping at night,” says Mykha. “I had trouble just functioning and doing regular daily activities —until I found Dr. Olivia online.”
Careful History for Accurate Treatment Plan
“During our appointments, Dr. Olivia carefully listened to my concerns and worked with me to find the best herbal formulas for me,” Mykha explains.
TCM herbal medicine takes into account all factors of an individual’s health, history, and lifestyle, in order to make an accurate diagnosis and create an individualized treatment plan. There is never a “one-size-fits-all” approach, as balancing a person’s internal health requires careful evaluation for best results. That means we ask a lot of questions and really listen.

“Not only had TCM helped me with eczema, it also helped me with other health concerns like constipation,” Mykha shares.
It’s great that herbal medicine’s side effects are positive, and there are no withdrawal symptoms, as there often are with steroid treatment typically prescribed for eczema.
What Mykha Says Now
As she continues her herbal medicine and gets closer to resolving her eczema completely, Mykha says: “I am very fortunate to have found Dr. Olivia and I can say that TCM really works and it has helped me to feel so much better.”
