Does Acupuncture and TCM have limits?

Of course they do, Acupuncture and TCM are powerful healing systems but they are not panaceas nor are they the solution to every health problem. Both Western medicine and TCM have their respective strengths and weaknesses which is why, in modern China, the two systems are used together. When appropriately combined, both systems have a synergistic effect which serves the patient well.

As a broad rule, acute life threatening conditions are best dealt with by Western medicine, routine and chronic conditions for which drug therapy and surgery have not been effective often benefit from Acupuncture/TCM.
