How TCVM Helps in Treating Tumors and Lumps
In Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine, tumor nodules and tissues are considered to be Blood stasis and stagnation.
The main strategy for treatment is removing the Blood stasis.
Max’s Formula, along with the Stasis Breaker formula, treats neoplasia, nodules, and tumors.
Max’s Formula is recommended for small tumors in older animals or those deficient in one way or another.
Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy is very different than our standard Western medical philosophy.
Traditional Chinese Medicine focuses on balance and finding the cause of the problem rather than simply masking symptoms with prescription medicines.
Through Eastern examination techniques, Dr. Smith chooses herbal blends to treat symptoms, and at the same time, correct the imbalances causing the symptoms.
Max’s Formula is only one of the many TCVM herbal blends available for Dr. Smith to choose from based on the results of the Eastern exam.
