The body is the temple of life. Energy is the force of life. Spirit is the governor of life. If one of them goes off balance, all three are damaged.”
– Wen-tzu Classic (first century BC)
Gastrointestinal complaints should not be ignored
They can lead to more serious illness involving the entire gut: ulcers, diverticulitis, Crohn’s disease, IBS, etc. In Chinese medicine the stomach is the crossroad where the body functioning can deteriorate to deeper immune and autoimmune issues. Chinese medicine can help you revert this process and regain health.
Evaluation and treatment of the full range problems
Our society is plagued with chronic degenerative disease. The soil, external demands and lifestyle have greatly increased illnesses in which the body’s immunity becomes unregulated and compromises many of the systems : MS, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, etc. Chinese medicine helps to rid the body of those factors that are “attacking “ the body and nourish the systems that are depleted.
Expansion of Wellness Program
Through the many modalities of Chinese medicine you can increase your vitality, flexibility, immune system and decrease the chance of chronic degenerative disease. Yes, you can lessen the ailments that are seen as an “inevitable” part of aging. Just as important, this medicine can help you become more sensitive to the deep internal benefits of aging – becoming more in tune with your inner Self and how that changes your relationship with the world around you.
Resume your active and energetic lifestyle
All too often gynecological issues are minimized until the only solution appears to be surgery or invasive drugs. Chinese medicine gently attends to blood and hormonal imbalances – fibroids, cysts, irregular / painful periods, menopausal or post-menopausal issues can all respond to the wealth of modalities that Chinese medicine has to offer.
When people have cancer, many treatments lower the immune system
These disorders lessen the quality of your life. Conventional medicine has many drugs to manage this type of illness but unfortunately these may compromise your health. Many have found that including Chinese medicine modalities in their health plan can at least lessen the number of medications taken and ideally help heal the internal process that is depleting the immune system.
