Conditions Treated

Building a good immune system is our best defense against possible infection

Muscles & Joints

The muscles and joints work in unison to allow us the perfect movement we experience when we are able bodied in good health and have no history of injury. Should one or the other set of these structures suffer damage in any way then we have the multitude of musculoskeletal conditions which plague our bodies over our lifetime.

Acupuncture and Chinese herbs have been proven to have one of the most dramatic and beneficial effects on these structures by having a two edge approach, being able to directly affect the local and adjoining muscles and internally strengthening and washing micro by products which build up around and in damaged tissues.

Auto Immune Disorders

There are many causes of Auto immune disorders but when looking at an overall picture of this group of conditions we can see that three main areas of our body are involved, our nervous system, our endocrine system and Immune factors such as IgG, etc. When we combine aggravating factors such as stress, poor sleep, anxiety, emotional exhaustion and genetic factors our body starts to break down our own makeup.

Using Chinese herbal formulas to improve digestion and absorption, to improve the body's ability to uptake micronutrients into the body, allow alkalization of the body from an acidic state, to regulate stress and tension using Acupuncture Moxibustion where applicable we are able to improve a persons physical and mental outlook to these disorders.

Viral and bacterial disorders

Chinese Medicine contains many books on infections from both the outside environment and internal infections affecting our body. This reference material is invaluable to making a consistent and accurate diagnosis of where the infection is and what affect it is having on our body.

Building a good immune system is our best defense against possible infection. Acupuncture is indicated in increasing our body by stimulating the immune response. Much the same way a splinter in our finger does by stimulating Auto Immune response to a foreign object. Chinese Herbal formulas contain many nutrients, which nourish our body and aid in increasing red and white blood cell production. We also must look at our lifestyle, exercise, dietary and water intake to give us the best chance to remain healthy and robust.
