Introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine by Dr. Olivia Hsu Friedman | ITSAN video broadcast
Dr. Olivia Hsu Friedman gives an introduction to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and presents how this ancient medicine practice can treat modern skin conditions like Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW). Join Olivia as she shares how TCM has helped in her personal struggle with eczema, asthma, and allergies. She will also give an overview of the differences between western and eastern symptom definitions and treatments and answers questions from a ITSAN audience and others who struggle from Topical Steroid Addiction (also Topical Steroid Withdraw Syndrome) and Red Skin Syndrome (RSS).
The International Topical Steroid Awareness Network, ITSAN, was originally formed to raise awareness about a condition called Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome, also known as Topical Steroid Addiction or Red Skin Syndrome. Since its founding in 2012, ITSAN has grown into a wide online community of TSW sufferers around the world contributing ideas, support and inspiration.
