Acupuncture  

Acupuncture and it's sister, moxibustion, have been used for many centuries in Asia to treat a myriad of problems. According to ancient theories, acupuncture helps the body heal by helping to balance the flow of energy and blood flow in the body. Modern evidence, however, is starting to show that acupuncture influences the nervous system and neurotransmitters, ie the communication highway of the body, to help facilitate a healing response. While the ancient theories are a useful roadmap to the clinical use of acupuncture, nowadays, we do not have to "believe" in acupuncture to experience the results. Most people, even the skeptics, respond just fine to acupuncture for a wide variety of problems. I know....I was one of them! 

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) acupuncture may be useful in treating the following conditions: 

  • Addiction– alcohol, drug, smoking      
  • Anxiety    
  • Arthritis    
  • Asthma  
  • Bronchitis  
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Chinese Herbal Medicine  

Chinese medicine in general may be viewed as the original Eastern functional medicine. While Chinese medicine is not based on science based anatomy and physiology, it is grounded in empirical evidence founded on the tenets of balance of mind, body, and spirit.  When skillfully employed, it is a remarkably useful paradigm for helping treat a myriad of complaints. 

Chinese Herbal Medicine is especially effective at easing the symptoms of: 

  • allergies  
  • anxiety  
  • arthritis  
  • colds and flu  
  • digestive problems  
  • dizziness  
  • fatigue  
  • insomnia  
  • perimenopausal symptoms  
  • PMS  

Functional Medicine  

Western functional medicine is a relatively new, non-allopathic, ie. non-drug or surgery , but science based approach to wellness care. The goal in functional medicine is not to treat disease but to attempt to determine and treat the root causes that may be compromising health and facilitating the development of disease. Standard, as well as more cutting edge, medical tests are used to determine biomechanical glitches that may be interfering with the body's innate ability to heal or normalize. Treatment is via nutritional and botanical therapies that have some degree of evidence supporting their use.
