Mastitis according to Chinese Medicine

Home > Symptoms list > Mastitis

Mastitis can be the consequence of several so-called “patterns of disharmony” in Chinese Medicine.

Chinese Medicine sees the body as a system, not a sum of isolated parts. A "pattern" is when the system's harmony is disrupted, leading to symptoms or signs that something is wrong (like mastitis here). It is similar to the concept of disease in Western Medicine but not quite: a Western disease can often be explained by several Chinese patterns and vice-versa.

Once identified, patterns are treated using medicinal herbs, acupuncture, and other therapies. In the case of mastitis we’ve identified that a herbal formula called Unblock Nursing Tea can help treat the patterns behind the symptom.

We’ve also selected below the five medicinal herbs that we think are most likely to help treat mastitis.
