What are Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture?

TCM is a holistic method of treatment which uses acupuncture and herbs to strengthen and promote health. Chinese medicine is based on the concept of “Qi” (vital energy) which flows along pathways in the body called meridians and is stored in major organs. When the Qi flows freely, the body is healthy and pain free. When the Qi is disrupted, then the body may manifest pain or disease. This disruption can be due to many things, such as injury, surgery, bad diet, toxins, and old age.

Acupuncture can help the body to heal itself by effecting physiological changes such as increasing blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the central nervous system, which releases hormones such as endorphins to help eliminate pain.

There are points along each meridian where the “Qi” can be stimulated, which regulates the functioning of the organs and brings the body back into balance. Acupuncture can not only heal diseases, but can strengthen one's immune system to prevent disease and promote health.

Chinese herbal formulas combine plant, mineral and animal substances to promote and prolong the treatment between acupuncture visits.

My patients use fruits & vegetables from the grocery store, medicinal mushrooms and tonic herbs to reverse diseases. This seldom fails to reverse Asthma, Arthritis or Diabetes.
