Modern biomedicine currently does not have a satisfactory method to treat multiple sclerosis (MS). In this paper the author summarises her experience of treating MS using acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine by analysing the treatment of 20 patients. The advantages and disadvantages of different treatment modalities are assessed, with emphasis on the importance of choosing the correct method and dosage of acupuncture in order to successfully manage the various symptoms and stages of MS. In the experience of the author the key to successful treatment of MS is an integrated approach that employs both TCM pattern differentiation and biomedical diagnostic findings.
