Note that in Chinese Medicine theory, treatment is generally directed towards "liver and gallbladder damp heat" and other patterns the individual may be presenting with. Issues may arise from other layered patterns and/or from other issues. Treatment approaches are akin to unravelling an onion, with the goal of resolving the root factor involved in the constellation of resulting issues. The current and historical array of issues and signs must be taken into consideration as well as the timing of the onset of each individual aspect.

Additionally, any of the above conditions may be involved with other patterns. Hence the web of relationships that Chinese Medicine is designed to approach.
