Colon Cancer Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for colon cancer. It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "colon cancer" is rarely designed with the resulting "colon cancer" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

Within TCM, "colon cancer", is potentially related to the following diagnostic patterns - kidney yang deficiency, kidney yin deficiency, large intestine damp heat, liver yin deficiency, spleen yang deficiency among many other possibilities and/or layered combinations.
