Treatment

Treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine is quite different from Western Medicine. We treat underlying cause of disease NOT SYMPTOM. Below only a few diseases are listed and underlying cause of diseases are explained briefly. We sincerely hope this can help people understand more on traditional Chinese medicine and look for good traditional Chinese medicine practitioners to treat your disease and improve your life and health.
Cancer
Traditional Chinese Medicine defines a tumor or cancer growth as an Excess. An Excess is something which should not be there. For too often, physicians will make mountains out of molehills by doing invasive biopsies or surgery to remove abnormal masses or cell growths within the body. The problem with this approach is that in many cases the otherwise harmless cancer cells will spread and grow to other ares of the body. This is similar to opening Pandora's Box. Pandora's Box is the mythological story of all treachery and evils that could trouble mankind upon opening the box.

Now let's change your thinking and give you a different concept and approach to the cancer problem.  In traditional Chinese medicine there are two key elements for cancer cells to grow: water and nutrition. When cancer cells remain in the body, it is a result of the body's environment. Think of an orange tree. It grows in just the right environment, sunny and warm. But if you dig up the tree and transplant it up north in Michigan, it will not survive. This concept of "growing in the right environment" can be applied when treating cancer with Traditional Chinese Medicine. We use natural organic herbs to help change the body's environment, making it undesirable for cancer cells to survive and eventually recover your body to normal environment.

High Blood Pressure
In modern medicine, high blood pressure is considered a disease. Traditional Chinese medicine view high blood pressure as a symptom, not a disease. High blood pressure is the body's method of sending a message that something is abnormal. We look to find the root cause of the high blood pressure condition and attempt to correct the disorder with natural but potent herbal medicines. A cure is possible, but every individual's physiology is different. Some take two weeks, some two months and some need six months depending on the severity of the condition.


Pain Management
Acute and chronic pain syndromes have an enormous impact on individuals. In the United States, chronic pain is the third most common health problem, just after heart disease and cancer.  According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, When there is blockage of the meridian, there is pain. Otherwise, there is no pain. Pain is the body’s warning alarm. It tells you something is wrong. If you ignore your body’s alarm,  severe problems can form soon.
Clinical studies prove that acupuncture is an effective modality in the treatment of almost all kinds of pain conditions,
Depends on patients' condition, some pains can go away just minutes after the neddle inserted, some others needs  more sessions. Lots of patients will feel the effectiveness  just after their first acupuncture session.
If you have any of the following problems: migraines, neuralgia, neck pain, back pain, herniated disc, TMJ, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, bursitis, arthritis, frozen shoulder, shoulder pain, fibromyalgia, dysmenorrhea, osteoporosis, sports and other injuries, surgical pain and even cancer pain.   Please consider acupuncture as your first choice of your medication.

Heart Disease
In Chinese medicine, heart disease is seen from two aspects. The first is deficiency. Deficiency individuals have a weak digestive system as well as a lot of mucus in the chest area. Excessive water under the chest is also observed. The strength of the IMMUNE SYSTEM depends on how good the digestive system is. A subpar digestive system makes one's heart very susceptible to germs and other sorts of diseases.

The second aspect is arterial blockage. This is due to eating large amounts of foods high in fat and cholesterol. By using acupuncture and/or herbal medicine, body circulation and metabolism will speed up thereby strengthening the heart with NO SIDE EFFECTS. Herbs are used to purge out mucus,water, or any foreign matter in the blood vessels and digestive system. There is no need to take operations building bridge on your heart which is very dangerous and expensive and frankly to say unnecessary.
Diabetes
Modern medicine considers high blood sugar a disease and use blood sugar lowering drugs to balance the blood sugar. Traditional Chinese medicine sees the blood sugar as high because individuals have a deficient amount of water in their cardiovascular system. Let us think one obvious example: which cup will be sweeter tasting, one cup is filled to the top with water,while the other is half full with water and when same amount of sugar is mixed into both cups. Lowering the blood sugar did not help on the patient's real problem. And so often we see diabetics have poor circulation and years after years they can not heal even minor wound and the infection will get to a stage where goes to bone and into the bone marrow. The only method of treatment is amputation of the necrotic area.

Chinese medicine takes a different approach and treat the disease on root cause. Standard treatment is to restore water to the cardiovascular system there by correcting the sugar imbalance.


Gall Stone
Do not wait until you have terrible pains or jaundice to see an doctor.  To diagnose if you have a gallstone, it will just cost an acupuncturist a few minutes, without using any type of machine, just press the reflection area on your leg and/or your ear. If theose points much more sensitive to pressure than other regions, that is indicating you are having gallstone. The more sensitive your are, the the worse the conditions is.
In chinese medicine, it mostly caused by  dump heat in  gallbladder meridian. To treat this problem, both acupuncture and herb formulars are effective.  We use the herb formulars to remove the dump heat of your gall bladder, reduce the pain,  dissolve and push the stone out. To do acupuncture, just insert a few needles on the leg, will have the similar results if the stone is not too big.  If combine both technique, the problem goes away real fast.
