What is Oriental Medicine?
Oriental Medicine is a separate science outside the realm of standard western medicine. Its roots go back thousands of years. There are no pharmacological drugs and treatment relies primarily on acupuncture and the use of herbs. It can treat both acute and chronic conditions. It is founded on the principle of the body’s Qi. This is the energy or life force that helps regulates the body’s function and restore its balance.
Recent research through the National Institute of Health validates its effectiveness when matched with control groups. Modern Chinese acupuncture is practiced much in the same way as thousands of years ago. The education requires at least a three-year degree and candidates must pass a national licensing exam.
Benefits of Chinese Herbs
Chinese medicine emphasizes the overall regulation of the body and is used commonly to strengthen one’s overall health, stamina, and immune system.
Our holistic treatment programs are individualized to meet each patient’s needs. Most treatments include a combination of techniques, such as Chinese herbal tonics, nutrition balancing, acupressure, acupuncture, and tui na. Treatment sessions are usually one hour and involve careful discussion with the patient of diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis.
One of the main benefits of Chinese Herbology is an improved metabolism, subsequently helping with stress and fatigue. Since herbs are in a more natural state they are more easily assimilated by the process of digestion. Chinese herbs are regarded as co-enzymes in chemistry and consequently have the ability to do work in the body. They can help boost the immune system and also give the endocrine system a lift.
Having trouble beating a lingering cold that keeps hanging on? Well, you might consider one of the many Chinese herb formulas that help clear phlegm-heat from the body. They are especially beneficial in the aging process and can help with female menopause and male erectile dysfunction (E.D.).
