Chinese Herbal Medicine Helps Resolve Skin Conditions
Traditional Chinese Medicine Dermatology, addresses the patient as a whole and treats the root causes instead of only symptoms. This results in long lasting results with little to no side effects, compared to standard medical treatment which often results in long term side effects.

Adult & Pediatric Patient Care
Patients commonly experience significant relief from discomfort within about 4-6 weeks and it just keeps getting better over time.
The full course of treatment takes eight to twelve months but some tougher cases take longer.
The first phase of treatment (generally six months) focuses on controlling the uncomfortable symptoms, clearing the skin of problems such as itching, pain, redness, dryness, reducing in the size and duration of acne breakouts, heat, oozing, plaques, bumps, and dry, cracked skin and managing flare-ups.
The second phase of treatment (generally three months) focuses on keeping the skin stable and managing any flares up that might occur.
The third phase of treatment (generally another three months) focuses on repairing and nourishing the skin and harmonizing the root cause of energetic disharmony to prevent flare-ups and keep you in remission for as long as possible.
You've got to be ready to commit to the entire length of time, the cost and be patient with the ups and downs of natural treatments. Over time, these level out.
Chinese medicine treats the root cause of disharmony in the body. This treatment protocol method can usually completely clear skin problems within six to twelve months and they rarely reappear.
Chinese Medicine Offers Safe and Effective Treatment For Skin Disorders
Overuse of steroid creams cause the skin to permanently thin and degrade. Chinese medicine’s herbal topical ointments are safe and do not cause permanent damage. (Some patients may be sensitive to ingredients in the natural products. If that happens the patient is switched to different, natural products.)
Overuse of internal steroids damage the immune system and biologic suppress the immune system. Chinese medicine strengthens the immune system.
Topical steroid cream treatment can cause severe withdrawal rashes. When a patient completes Chinese herbal treatment they do not experience withdrawal rashes.
Antibiotics treatments lead to antibiotic resistance, digestive gut health damage, and destroys healthy gut and skin flora/bacteria. Chinese medicine can heal the digestive system and restore healthy gut bacteria.
Dermatological Skin Disorders Which Respond Well to Chinese Medicine Include:
Topical Steroid Withdrawal
Hand and Foot/Pompholyx Eczema
Herpes Simplex HSV1 and HSV2
Steroid Induced Dermatitis
Juliette Aiyana recommends that you see your medical doctor for any rash that is not resolving, a rash associated with a fever, a changing or new mole, or any rash of concern or skin cancer.

Patient Feedback. Your results may vary.
I have been amazed at what herbal medicine and acupuncture has done for me under Juliette Aiyana's care. For a decade, I was on birth control for treatment of PCOS. In 2013, I decided I needed to know what my system felt like without synthetic hormones, but when I went off the pill, I found myself with cyclical irregularity, hormonal acne, and a flare up of life-long rosacea. Having been disappointed by the topical, symptom-based treatment of traditional Western medicine and dermatology, I have been deeply grateful for Juliette's holistic approach, always checking in with me in regards to diet, stress, and emotional well being in developing her approach to my care. No one in Juliette's hands is a textbook exercise - she pays careful attention to my personal history and experience, and I always leave my appointments feeling listened to and heard.
How Consultations Work
Virtual Online Consultations From the Comfort of Your Home
Juliette Aiyana has created a boutique practice using online virtual video appointments that you can attend from the comfort and safety of your own home.
She will listen to you, learn about you, teach you self-care, and create the relaxed, peaceful, and focused experience that you deserve.
Once you have scheduled, you will receive an email containing a link to join the video conference for appointment time.
In this comprehensive 1.5 hour long meeting with Ms. Aiyana, you'll learn about the root cause of your issue, how how it can be healed or managed according to Chinese medical principles and what self-care techniques you can use.
The patient-practitioner relationship is created as she engages you in discussion about how to integrate changes in your diet, sleep and exercise habits.
She will review how your social, family and work life may be affecting your health and talk with about mind-body relaxation techniques.
Her practice with pediatric patients includes creating a rapport with babies, kids and teens with warmth, smiles, playfulness and ease.
Instead of trying to fit a patient into a rigid treatment model, she will tailor your treatment to fit your unique set of signs and symptoms.
As your physical and spiritual health develop and change so will your treatments. That dynamic progression of energetic evolution manifests as healthy balance in body, mind and soul.
Integrative medicine is necessary for some cases. Most natural therapies can be safely combined with important medications such as synthroid, insulin, antivirals and more.
Patients who want to wean off medication such as hormonal birth control, allergy medications, steroids or antidepressants will do so under the care of their prescribing physician while Ms. Aiyana guides the natural therapy.
Follow-ups are scheduled once monthly, take 30 minutes and are designed to give you ongoing support to the therapeutic goals. Ms. Aiyana will monitor the progress of your health and vitality and make necessary adjustments to your treatment plan and herbal prescriptions.
Healing takes time. It is a process that is influenced by many factors. Natural therapies are not a magic pill. That is why patients are encouraged to commit to meeting monthly. Over time, things should improve and adjustments are made to your treatment plan as we proceed. As your body changes, so should the treatment. Changes to your condition can happen faster than anticipated, so enjoy them!
Keep a positive attitude and expect positive results. As we follow through on your treatment plan, look for signs of improvement and take encouragement from them. Build an attitude that expects positive results and knows that profound healing is possible. Your belief and expectation has an incredibly strong influence on your body, and is a key factor in healing.
