GENERAL MEDICAL CONDITIONS
Chinese medicine is particularly effective for trauma relief because the method of diagnosis involves searching for the root of a person's distress, rather than merely treating the symptoms. By thoroughly investigating the cause of a patient's stress disorder, origin and continuing source of discomfort and fear is recognized and more readily conquered.
Oriental medical theory asserts that balanced dietary practices are just one piece of a healthy lifestyle. Many conditions such as gastrointestinal disorders, chronic metabolic conditions and even stress, anxiety are improved from improved dietary choices. We assess each patient individually in order to determine which nutritional approaches may work best based on both their constitution and current complaint and modify those suggestions appropriately.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is a time tested holistic medicine system. Chronic illness has been documented for thousands of years and effective supportive treatments have been refined and improved upon to benefit patients. TCM provides functional solutions to chronic health issues, which allows patients to regain their quality of life. With a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas the body's immune system is supported.
